I do apologise for the scarcity of blog posts lately, but two events have recently taken over my life. The first one is campaigning to stop Bath and North East Somerset Council from building a 1,400 space Park and Ride (“parking lot”) on the historic Bathampton Meadows.
Long time readers of my blog may recall that I campaigned against these car park plans a few years ago. Unfortunately, the Conservatives got into power again last May and immediately resurrected the plans 🙁 As soon as I get a chance, I’ll write a more detailed blog post on what I’ve been up to. If you’d like to add your voice to the campaign, please do sign our petition. Thank you!
Here’s Lil’ L at his first meadows protest in 2008 (age 4)
Since last November, we’ve been protesting again.
We won’t give up the fight!
I’ve also been busy working on my recipe book. I started writing this book almost five years ago (as some of my readers will probably recall). I don’t know where those years have gone!
Finally, after hours, days, weeks, months and years of developing, refining, photographing and dilly-dallying, I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The book will contain over 100 plant-based (vegan) recipes and the vast majority will also be gluten free (or have a gluten free option). There are lots of new recipes in the book but I’m also planning to include some of the most popular recipes from my blog (as requested by readers).
With the exception of a handful of new ones, all the recipes featured in the book are ones that my family has been loving ever since we went 100% plant-based just over five years ago. They’re our absolute favourites, and we hope you will enjoy them too!
Shout Out for Recipe Testers
This month, I need to find some volunteers to help me recipe test. I’d like to give each tester 2-3 recipes each, but if anyone would like just one recipe or a whole bunch to test, then that’s absolutely fine. Honestly, any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you think you could help me out, please do get in touch via the comments form below or by email: [email protected].
Thank you so much,
UPDATE 9th March 2016
I’ve been overwhelmed by all the kind words and offers of help that I’ve received since launching this post. Honestly, my readers are the best ♥ I now have an army of 40+ testers which is awesome.
Let the testing commence!
