Lily's Short Guide to Paris

A short guide on where to stay and what to do in Paris, one of my favourite city's. From the best vegetarian cafe to my favourite lake side restaurant, a short trip to Versailles or a tour around Notre Dame, there is always something magical to do in this heavenly city.

Optimum temperature for eating & storing food

The other day I made a simple salad, plump room temperature tomatoes, with chilled spring onions, hot toasted pumpkin seeds and warm black rice.

When I mentioned it to our team it prompted a long debate about what exactly is the optimum temperature for our food.

Your Post Holiday Reset

It’s easy to fall off the bandwagon while on holiday, what with airport meals, piña coladas and not a single home cooked meal. Not to mention our motivation levels seeming to peak at swanning around on inflatable swans. And this down time is COMPLETELY FINE. A few days of indulgence is not going to do any lasting damage, so long as we make sure to regain the balance post-holiday. Here’s how.

Top tips for beating a summer hangover

While the British summertime has graced us with plenty of opportunity to talk about our favourite subject recently (i.e. the weather, i.e. “Isn’t it supposed to be summer? It’s been raining for two WHOLE weeks now!”), there has also been a whole lot of talk about hangovers. In particular, those ensuing a Pimms-fuelled staff summer party.

How social media is affecting our relationship with food

Being very much embedded in the world of healthy eating we see every angle of how social is impacting peoples food choices, but also how it is shaping the way we look at our diet and how it makes us feel.

Now stocking: Dash Water

Food waste is a subject we care passionately about as a business, so we are thrilled to now be stocking Dash water. “British sparkling water infused with wonky fruit and veg” is the strapline.

I’m a millennial and I’m a flexitarian

Our Founder Lily is a Vegetarian. I'm a Flexitarian. I’ve watched Cowspiracy and Leonardo Di Caprio’s documentary, I have read, and heard, the countless facts and figures in favour of a vegetarian lifestyle. But when push comes to shove, I won’t be giving up meat. And here’s why.

Becoming a Vegetarian

I watched Carnage. The person that told me to watch it said, be prepared, if you watch it you WILL turn veggie. I watched it. I am now a vegetarian.

Needless to say, the humorous documentary by Simon Amstell resonated with me, and many others it would seem.
