Being Vegan in Sheffield, part 2. Breakfast time !

My favorite meal is breakfast.  First of all because it’s the moment when you can eat the most (it’s heathlier to eat more in  Breakfast time rather than the dinner time). Also, when I was abroad in Taiwan for 10 month, I was eating delicious breakfast everyday. I explain myself: in Taiwan, there is a lot Breakfast shops. In every cornee of the city. Their selection of food is speciliazed for breakfast and they close at 11ish. Takeaway or not. They have such a variety of choices, that I got exicted to wake up early even on Sundays in order to eat food from those breakfast store. After that, I became used to eat more in the morning and to enjoy it a lot. 

Sometimes, I’m even excited when I go to sleep because know I’m gonna have a yummy breakfast when I’ll wake up and haha!

Anyway. This is going to be kind of a breakfast haul. 

Here is all of my current breakfast food. I tend to eat sweet stuffs for breakfast, it might be a french habbit I guess haha.

For Breakfast, I usually eat healthy cereals, with either coconut milk either Vegan yogurt. I prefer the vegan yogurt, which is so tasty, especially the coconut one. As for the cereals, I buy the expensives one, first of all because they are the tastiest, but also because I go to find them in Poundland as they cost only 1£, which is such a good deal! 

This week I took the ones that Poundland has, wasn’t the same that two weeks ago. This time it is Oat Granola with blueberry, cramberry and rasberry, which are my favorite so far. The red fruits are my favorite fruits, which influences my preference.

The third reason is that when I’ve bought Granola from Asda, the one that they made, I turn up being rather disapointed. It was not really good for my taste… That’s why I came back to the basics, Alpen.
To accompany that, or just by itself, I aslo eat some wholegrains bread with my jam (homemade jam made by my grandmother in France, yum yum yummmy!). I’m currently using a rasberry jam. 

Or, I can also eat it with Speculos spread, which is something I’ve never tried before (I only bought it yesterday) and it’s good! (but fat haha)

Depends on my mood, but I also buy crumpet too, which is surprisingly vegan (yeay)! 

And with all of this, I’m always drinking a cup of tea. Here’s a picture of this morning’s breakfast.

So, if you have any questions, just ask me, I’ll be happy to answer, and if you have any suggestion of breakfast meals, don’t hesitate to drop a comment 🙂

Products: The wholegrain bread, crumpet, alpro yogurt, coconut milk are from Asda. The Alpen Granola, Speculos Spread are from Poundland. When I want the Coconut Alpro yogurt, I go to Beanies Wholefood (Crookes). 

I’ll do another part again of being Vegan in Sheffield, I didn’t visit all the places yet so there’s still more to discover. If you haven’t seen the part one, check it out!

Vegan in Birmingham

Hi guys! This Thursday, I’ve been to Birmingham. 

I had the opportunity to only eat the Breakfast and Lunch there, so I went to this cosy and cute Bakery Shop. 

Vegan friendly, vegetarian friendly.

The name is Yorks. I was absolutely excited when I saw the board with “Falafel”. I always get excited when I see Falafels or (especially) hummus.

Anyway, look at the Breakfast and Lunch menu! We can totally eat well here, we have some choices. The thing is, it’s quite expensive I have to admit.

So, I took the vegan Avocado Smash with a delicious Blueberry and Date Smoothie. I usually don’t enjoy smoothies that much but there wasn’t that much quantity, it was tasty and not heavy. Very satisfying. 

It wasn’t much. So I ordered a slide dish, falafel (obviously).

So yeah, that’s it. If you go to Birmingham, now you know a vegan friendly place now! 

And I highly recommend the smoothies.


Travelling in Oxford, Vegan food

Hi there!

So I did a trip in Oxford and I kind of took time to find some vegan food but I wanted to share, for you guys to know where to go when you visit Oxford.

So I went to the Covered Market, and after trying to looking for options, my friend told me she saw a cute shop with vegan option and I was so happy actually haha

So here’s the shop, called Alpha Bar, in the back of the Covered Market. On the picture it looks closed, because they actually closed it two seconds after giving me my food ! I was lucky. And they were really nice !

So there wasn’t much choices left but I end up eating a cold salad of spicy chick peas // beetroot, with houmous as topping and some crusty seeds. It was yummy. There was another thing but I forgot the name of it.. it’s the cold oily rice rolled into a plant leaf. So yummy.

Then we were a little hungry later so we went to take a cake.

I went to Taylors, where a vegan cake was available. It was with coconut and chocolate, really good but too sugary. Depends on your mood I think, but it was too sweet for mine. But the balance with the good taste of coconut made this cake a success.

Then we left in the end of the afternoon so that’s all I ate in Oxford.

Hope it will help you 🙂 


Being Vegan in Sheffield, part 1

Hi there.

So this year I’m an Erasmus Student in Sheffield! I com from France, where being vegan is honestly really hard and people aren’t aware of the terms neither really nice when they know about it.

Anyway, here in Sheffield, I’m in a Vegan Paradise. There is several vegans stores, vegan restaurants, the vegan options are available almost in every restaurant or store, Im really happy. And I’ll share you what I discovered and what are my habits now, which are the places to go. 

I haven’t checked everything yet because I live in the north east of Sheffield and there’s some vegan places especially in the south east but it’s kind of far away and I haven’t got the opportunity to go.

So first of all, I live in Walkley, and on my way to go to the University, there’s this organic vegan and vegetarian shop named “Beanies Wholefood”. I literally go there every day. They have houmous, which I’m completely in love with and I take one little box every week. And there’s this crisp bread that I knew from Sweden and which I was so excited about when I saw they selled it in there!!! You have to try it. My favorite combinaison with this crisp bread is with houmous. Delicious.

Near the Uni, there’s this Heathly vegan/vegetarian store and Café near University, in Glossop Road. It’s called New Roots. 

I discovered they had vegan cakes there, and it’s amazingly good. Here’s a picture of the chocolate cherry vegan cakes. 

There’s several choices, including vegan ones, non vegan ones and gluten free ones. Plus, there’s this discount!

To add about the Uni’s opportunities to eat vegan food, there’s this Café named the View Deli. Unfortunately, there’s no vegan sweets except chocolate and nuts bar. However there’s a falafel and houmous sandwich and usually mos of the side dishes are vegan. 

I’ll add several other parts of this Vegan in Sheffield article.

See you!

Vegan food in England, May

During the month of May, I went to England and to two different cities especially, Nottingham and Sheffield.

Here’s the place I went in order to eat wonderful and tasty vegan creations.


Lunch time, I visited Alley Café Bar.




I chose ‘Falafal’ on the World Flavours Menu.

And then I took a nice chocolate vegan cake with a red tea.


I really liked the place, it’s cosy, there’s a nice atmosphere and a large variety of choice, so I went back on the afternoon for a another snack with a friend.

Here’s the best vegan cheesecake and, cake, that I ever tasted. It was so delicious, seriously!


I stayed several days in Nottingham, so in the next days, I went to other vegan patisserie places. Because, I’m from France, and there isn’t any vegan cakes anywhere except maybe in the new hype place of Paris, ‘Veggietown’. I went there lately, I’ll post about it later. So here in England, I call it the Vegan paradise haha! That’s why I ate actually a lot of cakes and snacks there, which I usually don’t.

Anyway, back to the cake! It was a lemon cake, and usually I really don’t enjoy eating lemon but the cake was really tasty.

After going to Nottingham, I moved to my future University City, Sheffield!



Here in Sheffield, I stayed in a really nice and vegan fellow’s house, thanks to Couchsurfing. They noticed I was travelling alone and that I had nobody to met there, so they made me visit the city which was really nice of them. But this article is about food! So, they took me to this wonderful address, which I actually don’t remember the exact name but when I find it I’ll put the link. All the cakes there are vegan.Which is AWESOME! I’ve never seen that many choice.

So I chose this one which was nice.


Then, on my two nights that I stayed at their home, they cook amazing dishes for me. It was so lovely. I was vegan for only 2 months, so I actually didn’t know a lot of recipes and that was the best way to discover amazing vegan dishes. They are vegan for more than 8 years and 5 years which is really great. I was amazed, and their cooking was delicious.

Here’s the first meal, with Hummus, homemade Aubergine cream, Turkish bread, homemade veganaise, salad, homemade falafels, and nuts.


And the next day, it was homemade vegan hot dog. OMG! That was actually my first hot dog ever, because well, in France we don’t eat those at all. There’s some in Paris or Fast Food but I don’t go there or only in Vegan ones, which doesn’t exist or only in Paris (again).


And, I haven’t talked to you about the best! For breakfast, my Couchsurfer’s girlfriend cooked a wonderful banana and nuts cake. The funny thing is, I don’t like banana, either do I like nuts. And after eating one piece of the cake, I fell in in love with it! She succeed to mix things I don’t like together and to end up with a marvelous cake.


That was it for the England vegan food post.

I’ll post soon about my other experiences in other countries, such as in France (Paris), Germany, Poland and Sweden. (Maybe Belgium as well).

See you!
