30th November 2020

can vegans drink alcohol

Whether you’re new to veganism or a plant-based veteran, there will always be types of food and drink that you’re unsure about in regards to being vegan-friendly. Booze, for example. So, is alcohol vegan?


Although you may be quick to assume that there is no need for vegan alcohol because all alcohol must be vegan, right? The reality is that some wine and beer companies use animal products for thinning agents, such as egg whites, gelatine, skimmed milk, and even fish bladders (I know, grim).

best vegan documentaries on netflix

If you’re considering veganism for a month: high five! Make sure you read my Veganuary tips guide for a successful transition and my favourite vegan quotes for a little inspiration. If you’re considering taking this further than the month: you really should, and watching vegan documentaries is a great way to get to your ends. Vegan and vegetarian documentaries were what made me decide to go vegan for sure. There are many vegan documentaries and movies on veganism on Netflix, which is convenient as most people are already on there, but you can find them elsewhere too, and a lot of them are for free.

My Vegan Hamburg Guide!

20th September 2020

Much like Leipzig, Hamburg came as a pleasant surprise, with chilled vibes all around and throngs of alternative, cool and independent shops and cafés. Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s located not so far from Berlin, but I found Hamburg to be similar in some ways — be it in the cool nature of the stylish locals or the general overall diversity. As such, the German port city obviously had several vegan restaurants for me to sample, and, what the hell, a fully vegan bed and breakfast! The vegan Hamburg restaurants, including some fantastic vegan breakfast Hamburg hotspots, get my stamp of approval! Without further ado, I’d like to present you a short list of all the delicious vegan food I sampled in my 48 hours in Hamburg.

I took advantage of being back in my old neck of the wood to check out the vegan restaurants Montreal scene and see what was cracking. I was super excited to see that most of my old fave vegan restaurants in Montreal were still alive and well, and even more excited to discover that there were quite a few newcomers, making Montreal one of the most vegan-friendly cities I’ve lived in – not far behind my beloved Berlin and upping the vegan restaurants Montreal count to a competitive level.

Joaquin Phoenix vegan quotes

Veganism is about so much more than what you eat and I hope these vegan quotes will give you some food for thoughts.

Planning a Detox Retreat? Here are my Recommendations

detox retreat

Cooped up at home the past few months due to social distancing – and feeling just a tad cabin fever-y – has resulted in me becoming an expert at virtual travel and travel journalling. With Google as my partner in crime, I have been planning city breaks, figuring out the best spots for a detox retreat and to go off the grid, and even trawling through my own archives to re-live some of my favourite hotels and beaches. But in all seriousness, lockdown has been taking a real toll on my physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing, so when I do actually get to go on my next trip it will be a detox retreat, for complete rest and reset of my body’s systems.

The Essential Vegan Grocery Store List

25th May 2020

vegan grocery list

These days, every grocery store is also a vegan grocery store.

But of course, a vegan grocery list is not your average grocery list. I’ve been vegan for over a decade, and navigating grocery stores and eating out has definitely gotten easier over the years. There certainly was no vegan grocery store back in the days. These days where I live in Berlin, there’s a fully vegan store near me called Veganz and I consider myself the luckiest vegan alive.
