THE VEGAN KIND | MAY ’17

I know this post is later than usual and that’s because I was seriously contemplating not posting this months box at all. Why? Well, I had an unfortunate incident with one of this months products, or so I believe. When I write these posts I want to be 100% true with you guys and so when I say that this box has been my least favourite I want you to know that it’s for good reason and that reason will be explained. However, despite the misfortune surrounding this box I continue to look forward to all future TVK boxes.

WHAT I ATE IN LONDON

Firstly I want to apologise for the lack of posts this past month. I’ve been so caught up with uni that any free time I’ve had to focus on my blog and YouTube I’ve been putting it solely on YouTube. Now that my classes have finished though and all that’s left is to study for my one exam, I’m going to make sure that my blog is back on its A-game.

So, I thought that my first post in this comeback should be a little what I eat in a day post. But this isn’t just your average food diary. I’ve just returned from a trip down south visiting my Grandad with my sister where we also spent a day in London. I thought it would be interesting to share with you guys what I ate while I was there.

AN EVENING WITH DELICIOUSLY ELLA

I very rarely go to book signings. The idea of having to queue up just to briefly chat for a few seconds with the author before being rushed away has never really appealed to me. However, when I saw that Ella Mills (formally Woodward) was doing not only a signing in Glasgow in support of her new recipe book ‘Deliciously Ella with Friends‘ but also a Q&A session I jumped at the chance to go. As you probably all know, I am a huge believer in living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and my main concern in this is always food. Ella is one of the people that continues to inspire me to eat well while also encouraging me to actually get into the kitchen and cook (something I’m not very confident with).

‘FILLING STATION’ | REVIEW

Today is my sister’s birthday and as is the annual tradition we went out for dinner in celebration. Usually we go to the same places but last night we went to Filling Station which is an American restaurant and bar that has recently opened fairly nearby. As we had never been before and as it isn’t an overly common restaurant chain, I thought I would write up a little review of the place.

VEGFEST HAUL

It’s no secret that I love food, so it may come as a bit of a surprise to you when I say that before last weekend I had never been to a food festival before. When I first heard of Vegfest a few months ago I was eager to go and so dragged my boyfriend along with me on the Saturday of the weekend event.

Vegfest is a vegan festival where you can discover delicious vegan food, take full advantage of the free samples and get your hands on vegan friendly clothing. I’ve made it clear a number of times that I am not actually vegan, but most of my diet is actually vegan/vegetarian. I thought I would share with you the tasty treats that I bought because I definitely spent way too much money.

WHY I’LL NEVER BE VEGETARIAN/VEGAN

If you follow me on Instagram or have read any of my What I Eat In A Day posts, you will have probably noticed that 9 times out of 10, I eat a vegetarian dish. I have been asked in the past if I was vegetarian and it took them by surprise when I said I wasn’t. I’ve never been overly fussed about meat but I do eat chicken and turkey and am also a huge lover of fish. However, I am known to naturally lean towards the veggie options when eating out at restaurants and I could probably easily go vegetarian if I really wanted. The thought has crossed my mind multiple times, but my conclusion remains the same: I wouldn’t. Here is my reasoning.
