What I ate in Thailand: The Vegan Edition

Hi guys!

So, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted but I’m back. I recently went on holiday to Thailand with my friends and I had an amazing time; great activities, sun and really fun memories. If you’re thinking about going to Thailand, go!

Now onto the food! In January 2016, I decided to become a plant-based Vegan and so far it’s been pretty easy for me but I did wonder how I would manage abroad. Before flying out I researched a bit about the Thai culture and food and read some posts from fellow Vegans and it seemed that I wouldn’t have a huge problem finding food so I wasn’t worried. I’m not a particularly fussy eater or even a huge foodie; I don’t mind settling for ‘just chips’  or ‘rice’ when I can’t be catered for and so this probably made things a lot easier for me. Looking back, I can’t say I had the most amazing food experience as there were limitations to what I could try but I can say that I tried a fair amount of local food and enjoyed what I had.

Beneath Your Beautiful Photos

On April 9th 2016, Love Your Temple Ministries held the ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’ event. This event was about looking at women and self confidence through God’s eyes and how we can display our beauty and confidence through our appearance.

The event went really well! We had a discussion, some amazing speakers and the lovely ladies in the audience made great contributions. Thank you so much to all of the speakers and the host and also to everyone who came and supported. Subscribe to this blog to keep updated with the next Love Your Temple event. Here are some photos from the day:

Vegbar Brixton – A Restaurant Review

I’ve been to a few vegan restaurants in my time but I’ve never talked about them on my blog. So far I’ve eaten at 222 Veggie Vegan, Greenz, Loving Hut, Cook Daily, Tibits and Vegbar and after turning vegan after 4 years of vegetarianism it’s great to open a menu and know you can order absolutely anything. Most restaurants have a few vegan options nowadays but there’s only so many bean burgers and falafel a girl can take! Vegetarian and vegan food is becoming much more accessible which is great; it’s nice to know that I don’t have to worry if restaurants can cater for my dietary choice or that it’s not a must for me to pack snacks everywhere I go. Wait, who am I kidding? There’s always food in my bag.

I visited Vegbar recently and thought it would be good to do a short review. You’ll have to excuse my photo quality though – I’m no professional blogger and definitely not a food photographer. Canon what? I’ll get there.
