Happy New Year everyone! So here we are, in the year 2020. Wow! When I was little, 2020 seemed so futuristic. I imagined we would all be wearing shiny silver suits and flying around on hover boards 😂 Well, the reality hasn’t matched up with my predictions, but life on planet Earth sure feels a bit crazy right now.
And when things start to feel a bit too crazy in the big wide world, I find it helpful to focus on the things that I can personally do (however small) to help bring about positive change. This month, I am supporting people that are giving Veganuary a try, whether they have pledged to go full vegan for the month or are dipping their toes into the world of plant-based eating. It feels an absolute honour to be part of a person’s journey as they start to make the transition towards this more planet, animal and human health-friendly lifestyle 💚Continue reading “Bit of the Good Stuff’s Gourmet Goa Burger & Veganuary!”
In today’s post, I’m sharing the recipe for a delicious broccoli soup that my family has been loving lately. This is the kind of soup that I crave in the winter months. It’s thick and creamy, and packed full of immune-boosting nutrients.
It’s quick to make from scratch, making it handy for those weeknights when you need dinner on the table in thirty minutes or less. It’s super cheap too. I calculated that it cost me £2.83 to make, which works out at just 94p per portion!Continue reading “Creamy Broccoli Soup [Vegan / Dairy Free]”
This season calls for hearty comfort foods, and today’s recipe sure does fit the bill. Packed full of beautiful warming flavours, colours and textures, this Six Bean Chilli is a feast for the eyes and the belly. It’s really easy to make and super cheap too. I calculated that it cost me £3.03, which works out at just 78p per portion!
We love to serve it with chunks of fluffy home-made corn bread which bake in the oven while the chilli is simmering (the recipe is on p54 of the Bit of the Good Stuff cookbook). It’s so good!! The chilli is also delicious served with brown or wild rice or as a topping for jacket potatoes.
