I ran in my first triathlon today, I had fun and was on a high for ages after. Not got the energy or words to explain it so feel free to browse the photo album by clicking the picture below.
I didn’t make this but I’m sure going to eat it. Recipe can be found at http://cashewcatering.co.uk/john_bailey_vegetarian_vegan_wedding_catering_blog/?p=224
I have my first ever triathlon on Sunday, a sprint distance which is a 750 metre swim, a 20 kilometre bike and a 5 kilometre run. I never would have had the energy or drive to do this before I went vegan but now I do. I am doing it for a great charity, All Dogs Matter.

I popped into the local Holland & Barrett and when I saw some of Redwood’s new vegan pizzas I grabbed a few.
Today I had The Redwood Co. Meatless Feast Pizza, they are small, only 7″ so perfect for one (pathetic, I know).
|I like how the plastic does not needlessly cover the whole back|
This is an easy one, remove the packaging, place it on a tray and cook at 200c or gas mark 6 for 10-12 minutes. I would recommend 12 as after 10 minutes my pizza was a little under done. Also get yourself a decent knife or pizza cutter and cut it on a board, my knife would not get through the base (I just picked the whole thing up and ate it like that).

This is a brilliant and short video explaining why I’m vegan. The video was not made by me but all the reasons apply. Originally shared by Will Travel For Vegan Food on .
When I paid a visit to Google last week I picked up some sushi on the way home, vegan of course. I love sushi, before I was vegan I once spent a week in London and had Sushi 4 or 5 days in a row.
I decided to make myself some and found this recipe for Tofu Nigiri Sushi. I knew what I was doing with the rice, nori (sheets of very thin dried seaweed) etc but I needed a marinade for the tofu. There were no measurements so I just put some soya sauce, lemon juice, garlic and ginger in a pot then put the sliced tofu in, I left it in the fridge for about 4 hours but 2 should do it.

I washed and cooked the sushi rice then left it to cool before moulding it. I prepared some powdered wasabi and cut some nori sheets into strips, then I just had to put it all together.
