VX Bristol first came to my attention for their vegan kebabs (as seen on a Wriggle recommended list). We’re lucky enough to be moving to Bedminster imminently, so thought it was a good idea to get the lay of the land, regarding veggie and vegan […]
No three words bring joy to my heart like “roast” “dinner” and “pie”. So when I saw Wriggle had an offer on for a vegan roast dinner pie, courtesy of Pie Baby, at the Golden Lion, I couldn’t resist. Sadly, there are no photos of […]
A friend recently introduced me to the excellent videos from Maximus Ironthumper, a normal bloke who bought a plot of forestry land using a loan, and built his own house on it. You can see a playlist of his off-grid how-tos here, and I’d really recommend watching them all if you fancy learning more about building an off-grid home.
He’s not exactly living in a shed, either – he has three ways to heat his home or cook, and underfloor heating! Solar panels play a big part in power generation, and he filters rainwater through charcoal to use for drinking.
Definitely give him a watch!
Here at the Bristol Veggie Breakfast Guide, we appreciate eggs. My better half and fellow breakfast-tester, Sarah, is an especially passionate fan of eggs in all their forms. So when I told her we were going for breakfast at a newly-opened vegan cafe, she was […]
Gloucester Road is one of the most interesting parts of Bristol. Famed for being the UK’s longest independent high street (not sure if that’s still true), it’s home to all the cliche Bristol stuff, like Banksy artwork and old crusties not wearing shoes. Nestled in amongst a wine shop (I resisted) and a good number of charity shops is La Ruca, a family-run cafe situated above a teeny weeny health food shop.
Off to the exotic vistas of Bedmo today, to try Grounded‘s veggie breakfast offering. Conveniently sited opposite a massive Asda, and there’s always the possibility you’ll see a lady walking a skunk (no, really). Grounded is a chain in Bristol with a few branches dotted […]
Zut alors! Patisserie Valerie is best-known for serving delicious cakes and desserts, usually piled high with cream and chocolate. So I was surprised to see that they also do lunch, sandwiches and all-day breakfasts! We popped in to give them a try… First impressions: good […]
You know how it goes – it’s Boxing Day, you’ve eaten and drunk far too much, and you want something that feels at least a little bit healthy, compared to all the cake and booze you had yesterday. You also bought WAY too much veg for Christmas dinner, thanks to the 25p-a-bag offers they had on in all the supermarkets this year.
Fear not! This is the Carrots Etc. soup recipe – most root veg can be added or substituted according to taste. It creates a thick, rich soup that will easily serve 6, along with a couple of slices of crusty bread. Takes about 40 mins overall.
Glastonbury, being one of the most hippy-dippy places on Planet Earth, should have a wealth of vegetarian options, so we thought we’d make a start here! We stopped at Mocha Berry during a trip to buy mead at Shieldmaiden (worth the drive, it’s lush and […]
