Vegan food at a wedding

A few weeks ago, Josh and I attended the wedding of our friend Mirel and her partner Mark. It was a fabulous event and we were thrilled to be part of the celebrations.

But of course any invitation to a party such as a wedding brings along associated food fears for vegans. We always worry if our choices have been considered or if we’ll be stuck with a bowl of lettuce.

Our fears were unfounded as Mirel (a vegan herself) made sure the many plant eaters in attendance were thoughtfully fed. Check out the photos below to see the vegan thali served for lunch, the masses of vegan cupcakes and the towering vegan wedding cake (the latter two both made by London business Ms Cupcake).

North London snacking

Yesterday was a celebration of vegan snack purchases in North London.

Check out four items that floated by plant-based boat north of the River Thames.



 

The top three were purchased in Bumblebee on Brecknock Road in Kentish Town while the spicy popcorn is from Vx in Kings Cross. Do you like what you see?

I love vegan snacks! Have you seen anything lately you think I should check out? Don’t keep me hanging. Comments below, por favor.

Dry shampoo you

What the hell is dry shampoo?

Tear down the arches

Why are McDonald’s restaurants closing all over the UK?

I was walking along the high street of my new neighbourhood when I noticed a shop front that looked to be recently vacated. Staring carefully at the place where the business sign used to be, I could make out the outline of the word McDonald’s.

closed mcd

How fantastic! Any McDonald’s closure is a good thing for animals. This particular branch had minced up and sold dead animals for more than 30 years and now it was gone. But why are these stores closing and does it even mean people are eating more compassionately? Read more ›
