Spotlight On: Original & Mineral

This is the third instalment of my series profiling brands I love that are doing great things with natural, planet friendly products. Today the focus is on Original & Mineral (or O&M as they seem to be known!) which is an Australian brand selling hair products that are all free of ammonia and other nasties, whilst still being salon quality. In fact, the brand started in an Australian salon and the products including dyes, shampoos, conditioners and styling products are used in salons across Australia. Luckily, they are also available for purchase to be used at home!

Recipe: Rainbow Quinoa Salad

Even though the weather has cooled down I’m still making up big salads for my work lunches as I find them super satisfying no matter what. Plus, it helps me pretend it’s slightly warmer than it really is! This salad was created because I knew I wanted to make a quinoa salad but I didn’t know what I wanted to put with it, so in the end I went with a rainbow assortment of vegetables, lots of herbs and a simple dressing of lemon juice. It turned out SO delicious and all the colour made me happy every time I ate it. Can’t ask for more than that from your lunch really!

Recipe: Stewed Apples

Today I wanted to share a deliciously simple recipe for stewed apples, that can then be used in a huge variety of ways – or, just eaten straight from the bowl! I don’t use much sugar in the recipe so it’s best to use sweeter varieties of apples, but if you can only get your hands on the more tart varieties of apples then maybe up the sugar or honey a little – depends how sweet you like them really!

Pubs for Vegetarians: The Union Club Hotel

And we’re back for the third instalment of the tour of vegetarian friendly pubs! If you missed stop 1 and two, you can find them here and here! This time I headed to the Union Club Hotel in Fitzroy for an easy Saturday night meal. The place was absolutely packed, but we managed to find ourselves a table on the outside roof deck (which luckily has heaters!) and settled in for our dinner.
