Most delicious meal:

Dr Jon Green the former CEO of The Vegetarian Society and I had a super dinner recently at tibits.

Tibits is such a cool place. My favourite music, gorgeous décor and cool atmosphere.

I knew that I would love it if it is anything like their Swiss restaurants – they now have 5 and when I visited they were queuing up around the corner for lunch!

Despite just being a Tuesday evening the restaurant was full and buzzing.

They have a great way of eating – a super boat in the middle of the restaurant with fresh and tasty dishes to pick from and then you pay by the weight.

I started with various salads including a vegan coleslaw, olives and dips. What I also love about tibits is the array of vegan friendly protein foods – peas, quinoa, tofu, chickpeas and more. Jon however dived straight in with one big plate and tried just about everything on the menu.

My next plate was packed with various hot dishes and all were fresh and tasty.


We enjoyed vegan friendly wine a tasty cocktail. Now there doesn’t seem to be many veggie places where you can enjoy a cocktail too!

Many of the alcoholic drinks are also organic.

Jon tried a few of the deserts as I did too and there are always vegan friendly options.

Tibits is not a fast cheap place to eat. It is a super veggie and vegan restaurant that is bursting with fresh foods and a place where you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

Expect to spend around £50+ for a 3 course meal and drinks for 2 people and paying by weight means that you can of course get a smaller plate if you can resist the temptation!

And get their FAB new book too! :O)

New friend:

I have been chatting with the rather stunning K9 girls and what makes them even more fab is that they are all veggie.

Passionate about rescuing dogs they told me;

“We can’t save every animal in the world, but being vegetarian means we wake up every day with a clean conscience and have saved every animal in the world in our own eyes”

The 2 vegetarians and 1 vegan got together in November 2011 to save a little stray dog abandoned in the forests of Romania – 6 months later, they have rescued over 100 Romanian strays and 10 meat dogs rescued from the Thai meat trade. They are growing every day and gaining popularity worldwide. They hope to become bigger and more powerful in years to come and help to put an end to the cruel dog meat trade in Thailand and help to make changes to dog cruelty in Romania.

And dog lover Simon Cowell gave them his backing live on Britian’s Got Talent.

Great book 

OMG. Seriously if you are going to only buy 1 book this year make it this one. In fact buy 10 copies to give to friends and family perhaps this Christmas. This wonderful easy to read and difficult to put down book is the latest from my friend H Louise Ashley.
