    Did you know that Aberdeen is one of the best places in Europe to spot dolphin ? What a pleasure to be able to watch them every weekend from Grey Hope. Here are some images from last weekend.

    Being zero-waste is achievable for everyone, it just requires myself to organise my daily life differently, and find the right shops to stock up.

    Rather than buying souvenirs such as magnets or other knick-knacks, I chose to offer culinary specialities or locally made products.

    Today I cooked a 100% vegan meal for my meat-loving friends, what a pleasure to see that they enjoyed my flavourful cooking and to have managed to love them a little of this cuisine.

    I've been trying my hand at vegetarian diet for several month now, I recently wayched the documentary "You Are What You Eat" on netflix which showcases the benefits of a vegan diet. This documentary is amazing, but I'm still not sure I'm ready to give up cheese.

      Cheese is the hardest to give up in a vegan diet IMHO. However there are great alternatives these days. I like Daiya, Violife and Chao. Costs more, but feel personally it's worth it. After Cowspiracy, Seaspiracy and more . . . and gratefully I'm not pinching the pennies too hard :)

      Thanks for sharing, I will give this documentary a watch. Let me know if you find a substitute for Cheese!! I agree, and to date have not found anything to take it's place. This is a challenge for sure! Cheers :)

    Since I started paying attention, I've been amazed at the number at the amount of garbage I see on the streets every day.
