Moroccan inspired Aubergine and Chickpea Stew

Spices and Love I have a confession to make – I love spices. This love started at a young age when I was introduced to Indian cuisine by friends of the family and also thanks to my father, who always loved picking up cooking tips from his travels and from friends and people he met from all over the world. As a child, I remember my dad coming up with exotic recipes using smelly powders and pungent seeds that he’d collect on...

Kolios organic Greek yogurt

Veggy Malta tried Kolios organic Greek yogurt with 0% fat. I took the yogurt at breakfast whilst reading some magazines.

A tub of Kolios will give you over 12 g of protein, which all things considered is very good. After all Greek yogurt...

Living in the present – a hypnotherapist’s perspective.

As a hypnotherapist I work in the beautiful world of the power of the mind. How our mind can influence the way we feel, see and react towards ourselves and others. Individuals come to me for a variety of reasons. From problems, dreams, goals and aspirations to smoking cessation, weight loss, increasing overall life, athletic and business performance. I have found that anxiety and depression have become two major issues in our culture....

Delamere’s Goats’ butter – what’s the fuss about goats’ butter?

Whilst we are a vegetarian site (more broadly defined as lacto-ovo vegetarian site) I am not a big advocate of cows’ milk, for various reasons. Having said this, whilst not so popular on our side of the world, goats’ milk is widely popular in the rest of the world. So if butter is your choice, it would be worth considering goats’ butter versus cows butter. It can be used in the same manner as cows’ butter. Yet...

What do vegan pets think of living with humans?

I have never asked an animal anything and heard a reply. They just have no way to tell us but there have been many behavioural ecologists and ethologists who have made it their life’s work to study just such things. The kind of environments certain species like, dislike or tolerate at a cost. My job as a specialist in applied ethology is to use that research to answer the question: Where and how do animals prefer and deserve to live?...
