Fortitude Valley Forever

Fortitude Valley, described by Visit Brisbane as “a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat” It’s a fantastic, kinda grubby, little gem about a mile outside of the Brissy CBD and I absolutely adore it! When I first arrived in Australia back in August 2014,… Continue reading Fortitude Valley Forever

Tuesday in Waltham Abbey 

Last Tuesday Kerry and I decided to head to the small town of Waltham Abbey in Essex. It isn’t very far from us, and I have often heard how pretty it is there, but I guess sometimes when things are on your doorstep you don’t always stop and appreciate them. I’m pleased we did, as… Continue reading Tuesday in Waltham Abbey

*My Blogiversary Repost* And The Winner Is…….

Last weekend was my Blogiversary and to celebrate 2 years of Without Cruelty on WordPress I thought it would be fun to revisit an earlier post. With a little help from you guys out there I figured I would have to re-post something food based, preferably written during my time in Asia and packed full… Continue reading *My Blogiversary Repost* And The Winner Is…….

Veggie Friendly Options at The Wetherspoons (Ireland)

Kerry and I have been in to Cork City a couple of times since being in Ireland and we have found The Linen Weaver, Corks only branch of Wetherspoons, to be a great, tasty, convenient option for grabbing a quick bite to eat. Everything is clearly marked if it’s plant-based and I have always found… Continue reading Veggie Friendly Options at The Wetherspoons (Ireland)

Quorn & Linda McCartney go Vegan

Something that made leaving the tranquil beaches of Asia behind and heading back west a little more bearable, was the fact that both Quorn and Linda McCartney have introduced new vegan lines into their ‘ready made’ ranges. This was such a welcome surprise to me and to (I’m sure) the 500,000 other plant-based eaters in the… Continue reading Quorn & Linda McCartney go Vegan

All’s Well and Good in Midleton

I’ve been hearing a lot about Eat Real’s ‘Hummus Crisps’ lately. A deliciously, crispy snack derived from chickpea flour and flavoured with a variety of herbs and spices. If you are familiar with my work you will know I am a huge chickpea/ hummus addict, so knowing that such a snack existed, that I had… Continue reading All’s Well and Good in Midleton
