Nature’s scrub brush

Heard this great summary of kale’s magical powers on TV last night:

When vegetarianism/veganism sounds good, but frightening

Vegetarianism and veganism seem to be seeing an uptick in support, at least from where I’m standing. And the reasons are numerous: from animal cruelty, to environmental concerns and health benefits, there’s many reasons to take up veganism or vegetarianism.

But, taking the plunge can be a bit hard. “So this is the last piece of cheese I’m ever going to eat…?” However, by becoming a weekday vegetarian or vegan still drops your animal product/meat consumption by about 70%, which has massive health, moral and environmental benefits, while still allowing you to eat your vices at the weekend. This video is a great watch if you’ve ever considered vegetarianism/veganism.

Vegan pizza on our “baby moon”

Somehow, Martina managed to convince me that there is such a thing as a “baby moon”: one last getaway during the latter stages of pregnancy, before you embark upon life as a parent.

We didn’t go far, but taking a couple of days away to spend with each other and be out of our normal routine was just what we needed.

Last night, we had a delicious dinner at Seasons 52, and this evening, we decided on some of our favourite vegan pizza, from Gourmet Pizza Company.
