Summer is definitely in the air and I for one am looking forward to the days of La Roche Posay Factor 50, getting my vitamin D fix and not having to wear 6 layers of clothes to cover all four seasons in one day. The other reason why I’m looking forward to summer (even though I live in Ireland and we have approximately 1 and a half days of sunshine each year) is it gives me the perfect excuse to live on my new favourite vegan snack, peanut butter ice cream.

Of all the meals we eat in a day, I’ve always found vegan/vegetarian breakfasts the hardest. Maybe it’s because I’m not a big breakfast fan (but trying to become one) or maybe it’s because everything seems to involve eggs or dairy, especially when you go to a café or you’re staying in a hotel.

If I hear myself complain about being tired one more time… But we’re all in a collective state of tiredness, right? Welcome to adulthood.
In winter, I seem to feel particularly sluggish and there’s something about the cold weather that makes me reach for junk food quicker than the healthy snacks I usually take smug pride in gobbling. I’m also trying to quit caffeine which is all kinds of fun. I’ve been using the excuse that it’s too cold for smoothies but today I decided to get back into my daily beetroot juice routine, in the hopes it’ll give me a much needed burst of energy. Continue reading “Energising beetroot smoothie recipe for when you feel completely zapped”
How much sweet potato is TOO much sweet potato? That’s one of life’s big questions, really. Even though I’m this close to going a shade of oompa loompa with all the beta carotene, I’m unapologetic about my sweet potato obsession and I’m always looking for new ways to eat it.
