Anyone and everyone at the moment is talking about Veganism. I like to think I’m Veganish. Not 100% committee to the cause but will happily live off plant based food a lot of the time.
On my Instagram I’ve been posting a few extra foodie photos recently. There is a reason for this. We forget how important food is for our condition. When I eat correctly with a range of foods in my diet I feel better for it. But I used to feel as though I was missing out on the delicious junk food.
I luckily came across Wicked Healthy Vegan food in Tesco… these are my saviour ready meals! So much flavour you wouldn’t think it was vegan. They also released a cook book. The Sarno brothers are incredible. I picked up my copy on release day. I’m now planning my weekly menu via Wicked healthy and Feed Me Vegan by Lucy Watson. If I’m not eating vegan, I’m doing my best to eat healthy, nutritious and colourful foods. (Selection of my cook books below)
In Cardiff, we are so lucky to have Vegan cafes and bakeries dotted around the city. Again making you not miss out on delicious doughnuts and cakes. My fave bakery is Blanche. Even my mum loves their doughnuts and coffee and she’s as far from the trend as you can get!
Taken at Blanche Bakery. In front of Cardiff’s most Instagrammable wall. Drinking Iced Strawberry Latte. Doughnuts pictured are French Toast and Salted Caramel Chocolate (I bought my doughnuts to go as mother bear wouldn’t be happy missing out on these bad boys).
The best time to start eating healthier alternatives to aid your condition is probably the summer. The warmer weather automatically steers me towards salads and away from stodgy foods. Just remember, don’t follow a trend. Try different things and see what works for you as we are all different.

Lots of Love
