By Liz Evers on Fri, 6 Aug, 2021 - 17:45

After years of relying on dairy to enhance my vegetarian cookery, I’ve had to learn lots of new flavour tricks with new and sometimes unfamiliar ingredients on my journey toward veganism

Growing Food and Spiritual Practice

By Liz Evers on Sat, 24 Jul, 2021 - 14:17

Learning to grow my own food has led to a big shift in consciousness – from the detachment of living exclusively on restaurant-served or shop-bought produce to the grounding intimacy of eating home-grown fruit and veg – and helped me greatly on the path toward veganism.

In 2015 I got involved in a community garden in inner city Dublin, not far from the Dublin Buddhist Centre (DBC). At the time I was living in a first floor flat with no outside...

Christmas recipes and food ideas

By jane.easton@blu... on Tue, 15 Dec, 2015 - 12:24

Whether you’re eating with fellow vegans/veggies or sharing the holiday with meat eaters, why not offer some lovely, kind and inclusive food that everyone can eat? I cook vegan every year for ‘mixed’ friends and family, all of whom love the all vegan dinner, desserts and everything!

Read the whole article

“At one time, milk was one of the more natural processes in farming. 
A bull would impregnate a cow — an actual bull, before the age of artificial insemination . She was pregnant for 
nine months and then a baby cow 
was born.

Afterwards, from the calf’s birth to up to three months after it was weaned, the farmer would...

Cruelty-Free Eggs

By Candradasa on Sat, 15 Mar, 2014 - 16:11Hi everyone, I was wondering what people think about the concept (or indeed the experience!) of cruelty-free eggs? I’ve been meaning to ask for ages! We started looking into it (we = my wife & I) when one of our friends started keeping chickens. Now we know three folk who, as far as we can tell, keep chickens as pets and look after them very well:

By “very well” I mean: in expansive settings (way beyond commercial “free...
