FANRBOROUGH VIGILS AND VEGAN FOOD

Hi guys!

I’ve got a new video up on my YouTube from a vigil I attended in Farnborough on Tuesday.

Check it out:

If you would like to come along to a vigil visit our facebook page and drop us a message. Alternatively, if you’re based elsewhere check out The Save Movement for a list of all established groups. Please note that not all groups are associated with The Save Movement, including Farnborough Vigils, so may not appear on the list.

If you know of a slaughterhouse that does not currently have an activist group holding vigils and are interested in starting one yourself please feel free to drop me a comment below.


On Sunday I will be eating all the grub and listening to talks at Brighton VegFest. Let me know if you’re around! I will be filming so be sure to subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss the video.

Happy Thursday! N x

What I eat in a Day

Hi guys,

Just a quick post to give you a bit of an insight into what my diet looks like on an average day! I would say this is one of the healthier days so perhaps my next ‘What I eat in a Day’ blog will reveal all the naughty things I not so secretly eat.


Breakfast

Breakfast is hands down my favourite meal of the day. When people say they don’t eat breakfast I genuinely feel sad for them for missing out on something so great! I usually have Oats. Luckily for me, this healthy breakfast option is my absolute favourite. If I could I would have oats for breakfast lunch and dinner, I’m not kidding.

So usually in a rush for work I take a container of oats with frozen berries, ground flaxseed and agave nectar. At work I then add hot water. Sometimes I’ll substitute flaxseed for chia seeds, depending on whats in the cupboard. On the weekend when I have a bit more time, and preferably after I have done some sort of fasted cardio, I will cook the oats in almond or oat milk and add cinnamon, raisins, walnuts, cocoa nibs and a chopped banana, with a swirl of agave nectar. The latter is higher in calories, hence the cardio.

Lunch

During the working week I tend to take a packed lunch rather than needlessly spend any spare money going out and buying from the supermarket. I guess I do tend to stick to similar options, which I know if probably a bit boring but a lot of people seem to just have a sandwich so I like to think I switch it up a little bit. I usually either have a wrap, soup or leftovers from dinner the night before. Yesterday I had a Spinach wrap with hummus, siracha, cucumber, mushrooms, spinach and two Linda McCartney Veggie (SFV) sausages.

Dinner

I try to stick to this rule: Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper. Quite often I go to the gym straight from work and so by the time I get home it’s about 8pm. Therefore I try to have something light otherwise I don’t sleep well. Usually on evenings where Tom and I are both around we will make a big batch of something tasty to last us a few days. This saves time and money. Last night I had leftover lentil bolognese with giant cous cous and curly kale!

Dinner 2


Snacks

I usually have breakfast about 9am and lunch around 2/3pm so I’ll have an apple and a banana as late morning snacks. If I know I’m going straight to the gym I’ll often grab a Trek or Cliff Bar or occasionally I’ll just eat a tin of pulses just to give me some extra energy. Yes, I eat the beans straight from the tin – I don’t care!

So there you have it. This is a particular healthy day to me, although not uncommon really. Look out for my next post which will show you some of the naughtier things I eat!

Thanks for reading – N x
