A Cooling Breathing Technique for Summer

By Laura Linehan, Mental Health, Mindfulness, Pranayama, Wellbeing

The sunshine over the last few weeks has been amazing and has left many of us with proud tan lines and rosy faces. The sunshine can help us to boost our vitamin D levels, change our sleep patterns, and enhance our immune system as well as our mood. Not to mention all the summer events popping up everywhere to keep us out and active. What’s not to love about the sunshine? If you’re like me and you’ve been trying to…

What’s Up With Downward Dog?

By Asana, Yoga

Downward facing dog is one of the most common yoga poses, and it would be pretty rare to have a class without it, for many reasons. It’s one of the best overall body stretches you can do, as well as strengthening key muscle groups, and helping to reduce stress and anxiety. So if you’ve been doing yoga for more than 10 minutes of your life, more than likely you’ve been told to ‘relax back into downdog.’ However, when I started…

By Dublin, Food, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

The warm weather and sunshine we are currently enjoying (is summer here?!). Often it’s too easy to turn to grazing on unhealthy stuff, or ordering take-out in the evenings.

Pineapple Fried Rice – Vegan Sweetness

By Dublin, Food, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

Pineapple is delicious, in cocktails, in salads, in smoothies and on it’s own.  Pineapple is especially good in savoury dishes where it balances perfectly with salty and creamy flavours. Fried rice was my main staple food when I travelled Asia last summer. Rice is cheap, quick and filling- a key component of a vegan diet. When I was in Pai , in Northern Thailand I first tried Thai pineapple fried rice, and it was so tasty! This dish recreates those flavours…

Vegan Banana and Walnut Breakfast Muffins

By Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

Sometimes you need a quick grab and go breakfast. As for gluten free and vegan options, fruit is the answer of course, or gluten free oats. So I’ve combined the two into yummy hearty muffins that you can bake the night before. These muffins have no cholesterol, no added fats, and no refined white sugar (as the muffins you buy in coffee shops do). Not to mention they are packed with fibre, potassium from both the bananas and walnuts. Along…

Creamy Vegan Thyme & Mushroom Soup

By Dublin, Food, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan

So I have a thyme bush growing in my garden. It’s the best herb to grow because it’s self sufficient, I never prune it or water it (not that it would need much watering in Ireland). It’s brilliant because it means anytime I’m roasting potatoes or cooking anything really I can run outside a cut off some fresh thyme! Herbs add so much flavour to cooking (vegan or not). There was an abundance of mushrooms in my fridge this week,…

Creamy Chickpea Curry- Gluten Free Vegan

By Dublin, Food, Healthy, Jenny O'Neill, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan

Now that summer is making a (slight) appearance and the evenings are longer, there is nothing nicer than sitting in the garden enjoying the sunshine and a shared meal. I find curries are always a crowd pleaser, for omnivores and vegans alike, curries are so flavoursome and easy to prepare exactly to your personal taste. I’m a huge fan of Indian and Nepalese food, not only is the food always so delicious and heavily spiced, it’s filling and perfectly balanced…

However this vegan ice cream can be whipped up in 5 minutes, and you can eat as much as you like! This recipe requires you to freeze some bananas the night before, make sure you peel some ripe bananas and chop them up before sticking them in the freezer in a ziplock bag!…

Cheesy Low Fat Vegan Pasta Bake

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

A lot of people I speak to about veganism say they could never live without cheese. And a lot of those who make the move to vegan say they miss cheese, but there are so many ways to make your own, or of course buy some there’s plenty of really tasty ones becoming available lately! The trouble is sometimes you can’t get to a health store to buy some vegan cheese, or the ingredients to make your own can be…
