In a perfect world, we’d be eating a plantiful rainbow, plus some vegan blueberry corncakes thrown in for good measure, and all our nutrients would be covered. But in this imperfect world, there are toxins… everywhere.  There are excitotoxins and pharmaceutical residues. There’s crap in most cosmetics, environmental toxins, and partially hydrogenated oils thrown around ...

ann and chloe veggie magnifique behind the scenes

At some point or another, we all come to the realization that our own experiences and wisdom could be helpful to others, and that always looking outward and “consuming” others’ content can be a hindrance in the end to sharing one’s own gifts. Not that we should stop consuming inspiring content, but it can become a ...

vegan parent france

People often ask me why I ended up in France. For lack of a better response, I usually reply with something to the effect of “pourquoi pas?” But when I became a mum, I started to wonder why the heck I chose this country. Sure, it’s beautiful, there’s a lot more space than in England, ...

natural vegan cruelty-free skin care products

Freezing temperatures in Paris have got me seriously thinking about relocating to the tropics. Or at least somewhere around the equator. I’m feverishly jonesing to jettison my thick, bulky sweaters and scarves, in favor of sarongs and sundresses.

Call us un-deep and un-philosophical if you wish, but… sometimes you’ve been working ...

la guinguette d'angèle vegan shoes

Guess what!? It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and you know what that means… (No. Nothing to do with Black Friday. I don’t celebrate Black Friday – it scares me.) It means I can unabashedly blast Christmas music without getting sideways glances. See, I’ve been doing it for weeks en cachette, but now I can jolly well ...

violaine bergoin raw vegan snickers

Yes, it’s now possible to make a healthy Snickers bar! This divine creation by our special guest Violaine Bergoin, is raw, vegan, gluten free and chock-full of superfoods. As Violaine says, it’s basically an energy ball disguised as a chocolate bar. We’re all for heathifying our fave treats, so here goes (and who woulda thought it): ...

yema-vegan-gluten-free

I’m always very touched when I witness kindness between strangers. The man who gives his seat on the metro to the elderly woman. The woman who yells to the bus driver to let down the ramp for the handicapped man when the bus driver doesn’t hear him. Total strangers, total kindness. It restores my faith ...
