 Most delicious meal:

Just pop across the road at Holborn and there you will find the little sister of Vanilla Black a new relaxed style ideal for a smart lunchtime treat at Orchard – the Vegetarian Kitchen.

Wonderfully decorated with reclaimed and old fashioned pieces Orchard just feels different to a regular restaurant – and this is what they wanted. A place where you feel like you are in a friend’s kitchen.

There are always vegan options on the menu and while my friend (the rather super Jamie Coombs the owner of scrummy Nak’d bars) enjoyed a gorgeous fresh sandwich with homemade bread and 3 different salads I opted for the Roasted Shallot and Hazelnut Tart, Wilted Greens and Sweet Onion. And rather delicious it was too.

We tried some new fresh juices and checked out the rest of the menu – planning for next time!

Just one vegan desert, however I was so full that I asked for a half size portion and they brought me a gorgeous little Seasonal Fruit Stew, Oat Clusters and Cinnamon Cream….

A great place to have a relaxed meeting, enjoy a veggie breakfast before starting work or treat yourself to a fresh tasty veggie lunch.

I am rather jealous of the lucky people who work near there!

A super place and would be even better with some more vegan options……

See Vanilla Blacks website for more info:www.vanillablack.co.uk

New friend:

Macka B – we have had some super chats and I am so excited to be working with his on his new album…..Change the World.

Macka B is much loved all over the world and brings his vegan message into his lyrics… I adore WhatMaEat – see the video on VeggieVision TV!

Great book

I have known Dr Rohan Weerasinghe for many years and so excited to be reading his new book…..The Bald Truth. Packed with tips and advice to ‘Tune in and get inspired’!

Rohan walks his talk and adores being vegetarian. He has inspired thousands of people all over the world and check out VeggieVision TV for updates of his amazing events that can change your life.

Best laugh:

Doing the outside broadcast at the Olympics with BBC Essex – the power of having a microphone in your hand allows you to chat to anyone. Remembering the brightly coloured French and Dutch supporters and also the nearly naked Italian supporters somehow still makes me smile!

Until next time peeps!
