Becky’s Kitchen – Not just burgers!

Becky’s Kitchen A couple of weeks ago, my partner and I visited Becky’s Kitchen in Naxxar for a quick dinner on a Monday night. I must admit that I drive past Becky’s Kitchen many times a week and I have been dying to try their veggy burgers. Walking into Becky’s kitchen you feel the cool, young vibe immediately. We were greeted by a smiling member of staff who walked us through the order process. Becky’s...

Time for Kwarezimal.

I strive to eat as healthily as possible, however that doesn’t mean that I do not indulge in a treat occasionally. Since I became vegan, these are usually things I bake myself. This week I made some kwarezimal to enjoy with my afternoon cup of tea. Since this sweet was traditionally made during Lent, it does not contain any eggs or fats so it is practically vegan. All I do is replace the honey for the glaze. Try this, it is very...

Twining infuso – fruit & herbal teas for all occasions

Veggy Malta tried out Twinings infuso herbal teas. We tried out 5 flavours very distinct from each other and quite pleasant to take at different times of the day. Let’s have a quick look at these 5 Twinings flavours: The lemon & ginger is a classic combination. I occasionally make my fresh brew of this tea, yet I always have some tea-bags with ginger especially in winter. Nothing warms you up from inside than a sip of lemon...

Take control of YOUR life. Mindfulness session at Mistra Bay

As a coach and therapist, I spend a lot of my days researching and practising techniques that make us feel better as people. As human beings we are extremely imaginative and creative beings, all things which are great from modern day technology to the invention of the light bulb. Henceforth most of the times as imaginative human beings we tell our selves stories that drag us down, only to a downward spiral of negative self-talk and...

A drop of sweetness with Diete.Tic

Given that I am all the time saying that I need to lose weight I was happy to try out two sweeteners by the Italian brand Diete.Tic. Those who know me know that I chose the veggy lifestyle for animal and environmental reasons. The plus side to it are all the yummy and tasty plant based food one gets to discover in this journey. I guess we all have become more aware of the decreasing the consumption of sugars but I have tried to take...

What would Jesus say?

What would Jesus say about factory farming today? Many a time when I talk to fellow Catholics, they all mention the number of instances that animals are killed in the bible to justify their eating habit. Few know that in the book of Genesis it is clearly suggested that eating animals came after Adam and Eve ate a forbidden apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Upon creation God stated I have given you the seed-bearing plants throughout...

The ultimate Avocado Toast

Avocado: a remarkable fruit! Disclaimer: I am an avocado addict. I love avocados and have loved them for many many years. I will happily eat an avocado a day for breakfast or chopped up in my lunch, so I might be a little biased when I say: Avocados are the best!  There are, however, many reasons that everyone should share my same love for avocados. Flavour-wise avocados will not blow you away, their flavour is delicate and mild, but...

Vegetable Fritters “pulpetti”

When I was a girl, my mum used to try to make me and my siblings eat vegetables as often as possible.  My favourite vegetables then were raw chickpeas and broad beans, when in season, straight from the pod. We peeled them, ate them and left a mess. Nowadays, I always say that if my mother had known I would become vegetarian, and later vegan, she wouldn’t have stressed so much.  One of my mum’s  vegetable meals I do...

Animal Talk 09 – Cat Rescue

I guess we all heard of the case of Janet Harvey who was found dead at home. It was all over the media last week, along with the rescue of 6 cats by MSPCA staff (and the unfortunate discovery of a dead dog as well).  We discussed with Chris what happened and asked for some information on the animals rescued. We also see the rescued cats and get to know a bit more about them and when the re-homing process will start. Watch the video...

What would have made you become vegan? The survey results.

What would have made you become vegan? The survey results.

One thing I disagree with that vegans do is show footage of farm animals suffering. Before I went vegan, my experience was that such shocking videos do one of two things: either they make you feel sorry for a little while followed by a full recovery as if you never saw anything, or they make you feel defied and want to retaliate by going to the other extreme and saying mean things about animals. But after I became vegan, as I started...

Tasty Meat Substitutes

Today it is easily possible to eat meat free food and enjoy the same plate of food thanks to the vast range of meat alternatives and substitutes available in the frozen, chilled and dry sections of supermarkets and health shops. By being meat free it certainly doesn’t mean it is taste free. On the contrary, meat free alternatives have come a long way in choice, taste and nutrition and pack a punch on all three. Not only do meat...
