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. But if you are thinking of going vegan, or if you are vegan but feel like your diet is a little – maybe you’re low energy, or you are eating a lot of the same thing – then I really recommend spending some time planning out what vegan groceries you need. It will make your life a lot easier, trust me.

Although being a vegan has been made a lot easier in recent years thanks to the rise of many vegan brands, including vegan fashion brands, as well as big-name brands releasing vegan-friendly and eco-friendly products — it can require some effort to maintain, especially for beginners (you can read my Veganuary tips to help you make the jump too). Fortunately, there are apps for vegans available that can prove to be a lifesaver.
Since I have been blabbering about Asam laksa non-stop for about a month straight, I thought it would be appropriate to provide you with an Asam laksa recipe at long last. Asam laksa is a mix of Malay and Chinese cuisine, a noodle soup that is traditionally made with fish. It is widely available in Malaysia, Singapore and in some parts of Indonesia. I have sampled several variations on the laksa, most of them made with a creamy coconut broth, but my favourite was the sour broth variant we found on Penang Island: the Penang Asam Laksa, a unique and complex blend of spicy, sweet and sour flavours. And so the hunt for a vegetarian Asam Laksa recipe began.
Berlin friends, if we’re going to put on the quarantine fluff, might as well do it with delicious vegan food.
There’s nothing funny about what’s happening right now. I’m assuming it’s no news to you that the virus Corona was born from the animal trade. COVID-19 is life-threatening but is also changing lives. Poor conditions for animals have in recent years caused a rise in diseases spreading from animals to humans, otherwise known as zoonotic diseases. With its origins in a wet meat market in China, my only hope now is that it’ll prompt some people to go plant-based.
As you might have guessed from the number of blog posts that are already piled up here about Bali, I absolutely love it. A LOT. And for many reasons. The one I’ll be discussing today is Jamu, this traditional Indonesian medicinal drink that looks a bit like mango juice and that you might have seen popping up on several warung menus or in baskets on the head of the Jamu Gendong, these women roaming the streets selling their precious potions to the locals every morning. So what the hell is Jamu?
With breakfast almost synonymous to bacon and eggs, it can be difficult to come up with ideas for the most important meal of the day that is completely vegan-friendly.
Fortunately, with some creativity, you can actually whip up some delicious and nutritious breakfast combos that will suit your lifestyle. Going vegan recently gained popularity for a number of good reasons. For instance, an article by BBC Future highlighted that people who eat vegan and vegetarian diets have a lower risk of heart disease and hemorrhagic stroke. Here are some breakfast ideas that can surely start your day the healthy way. And here’s a bonus recipe for an amazing vegan bagel sandwich recipe!
If you think about the most popular Italian dishes as they are known internationally, you might end up believing that Italy and its capital, Rome, aren’t some of the best destinations for vegan travellers. A deeper look at the offer of local markets, restaurants, and at the products of Mother Nature, which has always been so generous with Italy, will make you reconsider the question whether or not vegan Rome is a thing (vegan Bologna is absolutely a thing). There are a few essential vegan travel tips you need to know for enjoying Rome vegan and be sure that beautiful surprises are awaiting you when you explore the vegan Rome!
I happened upon all those vegan restaurants in Manchester a little randomly. Not even knowing how vegan Manchester was, I saw an amazing tattoo artist on Instagram, thought to myself I had never been to that part of the UK, and without further ado – because I do stuff like that – booked an appointment and a flight and off I went. If you’re interested, the result is yet to be divulged as we’re still working on it (it’s a bit of a whopper), but the added bonus is that I get to go back often and sample more of the vegan restaurants Manchester has to offer as I go. Oh, and you can check out my Manchester accommodation guide here.
“Look at all the healthy food Berlin has!” Said no one ever.
I realise that what I’ve been putting here about Berlin, and not only but also including the vegan scene, has been totally hedonistic. Vegan burgers, all the fast food, clubbing naked and plain just getting naked. I’ve done a pretty decent job in my now four years in Berlin, I’d say. But Berlin is not just that, I promise you.
