Veganuary and Beyond! A Normal Meat-Eating Guy Gone Vegan.

By | Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Lenka, Matt Quigley, Vegan

The expression ‘Cart Before the Horse’ comes to mind very much when I think of how I’ve went about things with pretty much everything I’ve done in my life. I started teaching Yoga before I had ever been to a Yoga class. I headed off to India to learn how to teach it before I had ever been to a Yoga studio or even knew one Yoga teacher. I started YogaHub cause it seemed like a good idea at the…

Perfect Vegan Pancakes

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Mindfulness, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

Some Sundays I wake up and really want a lazy, quick, breakfast. Pancakes on the weekend are always a good idea to me, but eating stodgy dough made using eggs, milk and refined flour never leaves anyone feeling good. Pancakes seem impossible at first for a vegan breakfast, how do you replace eggs and milk, (and in my case the gluten in the flour) ? But I knew soaking chia seeds, plus a combination of banana would replace the eggs,…

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Mindfulness, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

A few weeks ago I was going to a birthday dinner, a 24th birthday, where 5 out of the 10 there were vegan, the rest avid carnivores. I volunteered to make the birthday cake, someone suggested cheesecake so I thought here’s my chance to show the meat eaters how amazing vegan food is (on the sly) This is a combination of a few recipes I’d watched on Youtube before and mostly just me making it up on the spot. I’m…

Easy Vegan Japanese Style Soup – HappyFood

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Ireland, Mindfulness, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

The other day I just thought what better way to warm up in winter than rich umami flavours in a delicious vegan soup? I spent nearly 4 months in Asia over the summer and since returning have been craving lots of the flavours that just aren’t found in many western dishes. This dish is by no means authentic, it’s a recipe I concocted that’s both vegan and gluten free, 2 things not very common in miso soups and ramen as the broths are…

6 Reasons To Go Vegan Or Plant Based

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Ireland, Mindfulness, Motivational, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

Jenny from HappyFood here. I’ve been working in HappyFood since February 2015. I am currently in my final year studying BSc Culinary Entrepreneurship. I’ve been working in kitchens for four years now, but became so disillusioned with the food industry when I always had to work with animal products, and the menus were always heavily based on meat, fish and dairy with little or no healthy or plant based options. So naturally when I heard about a vegan restaurant in…

I care about being better tomorrow than I am today. Is YogaHub the best Yoga studio…
