World Vegan Day And Month




If you feel any compassion towards animals, please think about cutting meat, poultry, fish, crustacea, eggs, dairy & honey from your diet... 
You can find lots of information online about animal cruelty & reasons for becoming vegan. 
Your body will thank you - especially if you eat a well balanced diet with as much organic produce as possible. 

Read this article from last year: Top 20 Reasons To Go Vegan.

Start by taking The Vegan Pledge & you will receive support from The Vegan Society.

To show our support for veganism & encourage folks to give it a go, we are going to post at least a photo each day of our food & interesting snippets for November.

So here's tonights's dinner...

Roasted vegetables with chickpeas in a tangy tomato sauce, Sime's mustard mash & steamed kale.

We made the sauce similar to our pasta sauce - In a little water, we fried (or simmered on a low heat) lots of sliced onions, chopped garlic, fresh ginger, 8 whole cherry tomatoes & a heaped teaspoon of smoked paprika. After about 20 minutes, we added a tin of chopped tomatoes, a good splash (or 3) of soy sauce, a few drops of vegan Worcestershire sauce, a splash of cider vinegar, a dollop of blackstrap molasses, zest & juice of a small lemon & a sprinkle of black pepper.

We dry roasted our vegetables for 30 minutes, then added the sauce, chickpeas & baked in the oven for another 30 minutes... 
And the leftovers will be made into a cottage pie for tomorrow!!!

Us in Mousehole last week.

Hope you're all having a good weekend!

Purposefully Living

How long have we dreamed of buying a place in France?  Of living in the mountains? Probably ever since we got together over 30 years ago... So here we are, we are finally doing it!  We have paid our deposit, met with the notaire and will be receiving the keys to this cute little house in January!  Next year will bring about a lot of change for us and we are very excited, we have been focusing on our lives in a positive and intentional way, meditating each morning and visualising the things we desire. The incredible thing is - it works, it really does.
We have proved over and over again that it is possible for us to do this - being in a good place and having the ability to really focus always makes things happen. We consider everything we have achieved so far, things which seemed so out of reach, but we wanted them and somehow they came into our lives...  From cars, holidays, our business, the B&B to houses. It has meant taking quite a leap of faith at times, even when the likihoo…

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.
Porridge!!! Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water. Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥
