Why are so many yogis vegetarian?

By Food, Healthy, Laura Linehan, Vegan, Yoga

If you are one of the many people who have recently started yoga, you will probably have read or heard a lot about vegetarianism. A lot of yoga teachers and practitioners will often take up a vegetarian diet once they get serious about their yoga practice – you might be wondering what that’s all about. The answer lies in the historic roots of yoga. There are two main historical reasons for this connection, and both of them lie in the…

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…

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…

Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

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

Who doesn’t love Nutella? The whole world is mad for chocolately hazelnut gooeyness and rightly so, it’s a match made in heaven. I’m not a huge fan of sweet stuff usually, but nearing the end of my degree the pressure is on, and I needed some vegan version of the chocolate stuff to get me through. So I made some vegan nutella, or chocolate spread or whatever you like to call it. And it turned out amazing!! So decadent and…

Cheats Gluten Free Vegan Pizza

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

When life gets hectic, food can either be the first or last thing on your mind. For me I want something tasty, but with minimal effort. Pizza is a crowd pleaser, I have yet to meet someone who tells me they don’t enjoy a pizza. Pizza is also one of the things that people are concerned about when they hear you are a vegan or consider a vegan diet themselves, but fear not. There’s plenty of vegan pizza to go…
