Vegan Cafe Library!

library post

Oh My Goodness vegan cafe at the Enterprise Centre behind the station in Eastbourne is now providing a free library of gorgeous vegan comics and story books 😀  You can help yourself to any book, or as many books as you like, take them home and bring them back when you’re finished with them.  It’s a simple as that!

Plus there’s also free fairy tales to keep, and puzzle pages, jigsaw puzzles and colouring books to enjoy while you’re waiting for your food!  What a brilliant cafe!  The food is also awesome 😀

Delicious food.  Free library.  Free fairy tales.  Wordsearches.  Crosswords.  Colouring Books.  Jigsaw puzzles.

Now that’s what I call a great venue!

Go on, treat yourself!  Get on down to Oh My Goodness vegan cafe, Enterprise Shopping Centre, Station Parade, Eastbourne, E. Sussex, BN21 1BD – and borrow some comics! 😀

Oh My Goodness Vegan Store!

This place is wonderful! 😀

It’s at the Enterprise Centre, a lovely little shopping centre behind the station, in Eastbourne.

There are two small cosy seating areas, and a scrumptious selection of delicious food to choose from.

The food there is not only delicious, it’s healthy!  There are plenty of fresh fruit and salad options as well as scrummy baked goods, sweet and savoury.  They do this amazing sausage roll with tomato relish in!  My goodness!

I’ve never been an adventurous eater so eating at Oh My Goodness has introduced me to all sorts of delectable foods I’d never tried before, prepared in a way that makes them irresistible.

I am not at all surprised that these tomato-relished sausage rolls did not remain on the plate long enough to be photographed.

So, the food is amazing – that much we’ve established – but what sets this vegan cafe apart from the rest is that they are now selling vegan books for children! 😀

Just inside the door is a bookcase, and on the top shelf of that book case is a small selection of our comics and story books for sale.

We are so excited! 😀

So if you want a good feed, and a good read, you know where to go! 😀

Homemade Raw Bars

After giving up refined sugar I got hooked on these things.  They are an absolutely delicious, feel-good treat (Pulsin is on the ethical chocolate list) which is almost guilt-free.  Almost.  Unfortunately they’re wrapped in plastic.  So, to avoid that, I decided to make my own – and they are equally yummy, if I do say so myself 😀

I ordered my supplies from the Zero Waste Club – a wonderful new company from whom you can order all sorts of healthy staples without plastic wrapping.  The following is my first attempt and it made a lot of bars.  In future I’ll halve these measurements 🙂

Ingredients:

  • Almost 3 mugs full (500g) of organic pitted dates
  • About 2 mugs full (about 350g) of organic cashews
  • About 1 mug full of organic raisins
  • About half a mug full of organic cocoa powder (to be truly raw, substitute raw cacao)
  • About a mug full of organic cacao nibs
  • Some organic oats (to be truly raw, omit these)

First soak the dates and the cashews in water (separately) in the fridge for a couple of hours to soften.  Afterwards, drain and rinse the cashews in a colander.

I don’t have a food processor (I used to have one but it broke and I refuse to buy another one which will also break at some point and add more plastic to landfill) so I used my beloved manual juicer to process these ingredients.  This is a simple, hand-crank machine made of stainless steel which I believe will last me a life time.  I highly recommend it 😀 (BL-30 Manual Stainless Steel Wheat Grass and Vegetable Juicer)

  1.  Process the softened dates into mush and put them in a large mixing bowl.2.  Process the softened cashews into mush and add them to the bowl with the dates.3.  Mix the stiff mixture of dates and cashews until thoroughly combined.4.  Process the raisins into mush and mix them into the mixture.5.  Add the cocoa and the cacao nibs and mix until everything is fully combined into a lovely chocolatey mixture.6.  If you don’t want to add the oats, you’re finished so you can spread the mixture into a tin or onto a plate or container.  It is delicious now but you won’t be able to pick it up with your fingers to eat it, like a shop-bought bar.  You’ll need a plate and a fork coz it’s mushy.  So, I added a few oats to stiffen it up.  Just add a few at a time and mix them in until you’ve got the consistency you want.7.  When the mixture is the right consistency, spread it onto a lined cookie sheet (I lined it with eco-friendly grease proof paper from If You Care)  Flatten it with  the back of  a wet spoon.8.  Then cut it into bars and chill in the fridge.  Easy 😀 Yum 😀

Macka B – Cucumber

I’ve always loved cucumbers but if it’s possible, now I love them even more 😀

I even grew some of my own this year – I got a bumper crop from just 2 plants and they are absolutely scrumptious 😀 ❤ ❤ ❤
