Going green relates to many facets of your life – everything from recycling, reducing waste, and making sustainable choices – and it also relates to your diet.
The ‘greenest’ diet there is, is a vegan diet.
Surrounded by stigmas and hatred, many people associate veganism with brown rice and tofu, a ‘hippie’ lifestyle, and someone who’ll voice their opinions the second you mention the words ‘Big Mac’.
But I wanted to help clear a few things up. Even if you’re a meat eater, check this out – I promise this episode will be informative and interesting! I’m also going to share with you a delicious challenge! Here’s the links to the recipes I mention in the podcast:
Today I wanted to talk about plastic. I know it’s not glamorous, but don’t switch off yet! Please. It’s a serious issue and one that’s not going away.
Did you know that Australians dump over 1 million tonnes of plastic waste in landfill each year? Believe it or not, enough plastic is discarded every year to circle the globe four times. Even worse, it is estimated that 50% of the plastic on this planet is used only once before being thrown away.
It is! And it gets worse…
Last year I shared my favourite eco friendly and cruelty free gifts for Christmas. It was such a popular blog and I couldn’t wait to do it again!
My idea of gifting is somewhat different than most. I want to gift something more than just a throwaway trifle, or something that’ll be used and forgotten about, or something that harms the earth and its inhabitants.
In this LIVE chat, I speak about my favourite high protein vegan foods, how I like to food combine, what iron supplements I like, and how best to cook tofu.
Has the bitter cold hit where you are yet? It’s come at me like a thief in the night, stealing into the room, filling up the corners with cold, damp air, and has found us all, literally, hunkered down under a mountain of blankets. It’s also had me running for warm breakfasts. Smoothies, be gone! Bring on the porridge.
Adopting a deaf dog was going to be a challenge- we knew that. But, one that we were (semi) prepared for, and definitely one that we were excited about. There’s only so much that reading blogs and books and watching videos teaches you however….but here’s some things that we wish we knew, and that helped us on our journey.

Finding out your Dosha can be extremely liberating! It explains a hell of a lot about your body and can help you make subtle changes to aid your constitution.

There are so many dairy milk alternatives on the market here in Australia at the moment- we are truly lucky that we can now walk into any health food store, supermarket, convenience store and corner shop, and at the VERY least be able to find soy milk (and if you’re really lucky, almond milk).
Vitamin B12 is a necessary part of everyone’s diet- especially on a plant based one. Here, I give the low-down on this essential vitamin.
Vegetable soup stock is really easy to make at home.
It’s a staple for us here at VH Headquarters, as it has a depth of flavour that is unmatched by bought stocks or plain sea salt.
It’s very economical and it’s really great way to clean out the refrigerator. You can tailor the stock to whatever you like, then store it for a couple of days in the fridge or up to several months in the freezer.
There are a number of factors to take into consideration when you begin to eat, or are already eating a plant based diet; the most important being that you have to ensure you’re getting all of the right nutrients you need for your body to function optimally.
Many vegetarians and vegans don’t know how to modify their diet to include sufficient amounts of protein, however with a little tweaking, it’s quite easy to ensure you’re getting the best of both Worlds.
