Where to go for a 'special' vegan meal
I wanted to go somewhere extra special for my birthday. Somewhere beautiful, where we could indulge in different foods. I contacted a few restaurants, asking if they had/would create a vegan tasting menu for two.

This recipe makes a deliciously creamy cheesecake. I know it's good because it's gone down a treat with vegan and non-vegans alike.

What's so good about Villa Pompei in Pinner, London?
Villa Pompei is an Italian restaurant that's located in Pinner. It's spacious, and the seating areas are set up, so that large parties have a slightly separate section. Their menu is vast, but the best part of Villa Pompei, is that they don't make their food in advance. This means that they can veganise a huge amount of items on their menu, and it's not bother to them, because they were going to make it from scratch anyway!Read More
A Paak is like a flapjack. My Mum has made a non-vegan version of this several times, and the friends and family who tasted it, loved it! A few of them got talking and suggested that she veganised it, so that we could enjoy it. Funnily enough, my hubby, Suraj, loved it, and I wasn't a fan. However, I'm sharing the recipe with you because, as many others have, you may also try it, and find yourself yearning for more!Read More

I shifted from a vegetarian diet, to a vegan lifestyle, because I was unable to live a life of duality. I couldn't know about the pain, suffering, and entrapment that animals endure, for us to have particular foods or materials, and continue to be part of it. Although I do reflect on things, I wouldn't have started this journey if it wasn't for PeTA India, and the learning hasn't stopped there.
To me, T.O.F.U. Magazine is key in helping us connect the dots. It is a way of making us aware of topics that involve veganism and other forms of oppression. After all, if that's the kind of thing that bothers us, and if that's what we want to avoid being part of; T.O.F.U Magazine is a great way to make sure that we stay in the know. We may not be ready to make necessary changes straight away, but at least we'll be aware.

Suraj and I had been on a pilgrimage that involved a lot of driving, and some trekking. The trip was amazing, for a number of reasons, but by the end of it, I couldn't face another 'Indian' meal! Why? Every single day, between May 24th and June 10th, we had some form of 'Indian' food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

My hubby, father -in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law and nephew went to the fun fair together. After a few hours, we were hungry, and we ended up in Mumbai Local. I don't know if my brother-in-law and his missus had been there before, if they had it in mind to try, or if it's one of the first restaurants we came across. Either way, I'm so glad we went there.

The first Veggie Pret opened in 2016. It was located in Soho and it was a pop up. It was a great success, and has gone from being pop up to becoming permanent! in April 2017, another branch was opened in Shoreditch. It looks pretty slick doesn't it?
