Daily Routine, Being Vegan in Sheffield part 3

Hi guys! I wanted to share my daily routine with you, with which food I’m eating in Sheffiled Uni and the one I’m cooking in my home. I’ve already shared about my breakfast and some food I’m used to eat in here, but let’s focus on what I choose to eat depending on the situation.

For instance, when I have time, I try to cook. Cooking brings some hapiness and when you succeed, you feel like you accomplished something great. Haha anyway that’s how I feel. So here’s a meal I love to cook but which takes time, Gyōza/Dumplings. It’s these chinese/japanese ravioli full of Veggies.

It’s really delicious. When you try to find some in an Asian supermarket it’s always out of price so I suggest you to try to make it at home. There’s differents recipes, just type vegan gyoza and you would find one of them. I could also share mine with you, if you’re interested. Leave a comment if you are.

There’s some days where I don’t have time to go home and cook, having only one hour break for lunch between two lectures, so I go to Our Shop, The University’s store and grap one of the Vegan sandwiches. Yes there’s several vegan options! Hapiness!

On the picture I also grabbed a banana and strawberry smoothie from the University’s Café, and a chocolate (but natural? Haha) fruit bar. This bar is amazingly good and it’s being sell so quickly that I only find it once every five time I go the shop.

When I’m lazy to cook and when I feel like a light meal would be enough, I’m making some salad with whichever veggies I have.

This one was with tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions, green olives, lettuce, red pepper and sesames seeds. I added some Soy sauce and optionally sometimes I add some Olive oil for more taste. It’s simple and tasty, that’s one of my most regular meal. I do change the dressing depending on my mood. It can be soy sauce, or yeast flakes, and lately I’ve been using the Henderson’s Relish which is a speciality of Sheffield.

That’s it for this article, I’m gonna do another part of Being Vegan in Sheffield as I’m staying for a year here, I have a lot to talk about. Thanks for reading, don’t hesitate to leave a comment, I would be really happy if you do. 



Asian (Chinese/Taiwanese) tomato soup

Hi guys! So, I went to this Asian store near Vodka Revolution near Division Street last time, and I saw this tomato soup from Taiwan (which is normally for Hot Pot but I don’t have the equipment to do one), so instead of a Hot Pot I decided to cook a Tomato Soup with noodles and veggies. 

All you need is:

  • Asian wheat Noodles
  • Green onions
  • Tomato soup base
  • Mushrooms
  • Cabbage
  • Asperagus
  • Any greens veggies actually
  • Onion powder 
  • Pepper
  • Soy Sauce 
  • Any (red/green/yellow) peppers

This is what I create from which veggies I had in my cupboard and frigde but do as you want. Then you just boil the water with the tomato flavor base, and when it’s boiling add the veggies and the spicies.

Here’s how it looks! It was tasty indeed.

See you guys.

Northern Vegan Festival

The Northern Vegan Festival happened on the 15th of October in Manchester. It was amazing, one of the best day of my life. Well, because in France, people don’t even know what vegan means… There’s no vegan store or options anywhere, except in Paris where so shops opened recently, but are out of price. So, seeing more than 190 stalls of Vegan food of goods, was the best thing ever! Everyone was so really nice, smily, sharing. So many free samples, I ate so much. I don’t regret anything haha. So I definitely wanna share my hapiness with you guys.

The Venue was an hotel. Well actually the Vegan Festival was expanded on six differents places. The main one was this hotel where I stayed 4 hours. 

When I arrived, I knew there was free food but I didn’t know where, so when I learned it was downstairs I just almost ran there ahah. Free cheese and dark chocolate. Was heaven!

After eating some delicious dark chocolate and a lot of different vegan cheese, we went back upstairs to check ou all the stalls.

That’s some picture of the food stalls, but there were also closes stalls and accessories stalls, I took in pictures some of the cutest and great ones.

Here’s now the picture of what I ate!

I think I was so excited that I haven’t take eveything in picture haha. So I started with this Hummous crisps that intrigued me a lot but in the end it was just regular crisps, no big thing about it, and I don’t know where was the taste of houmous haha.

Then I ate this amazing tartlet that you can see on the picture above. It was so creamy. So good. 

Then I let myself go for some sweet food, and I found this Carrot Cake. I’ve never ate a carrot cake before so I cannot compare haha but it was really tasty !

Then I haven’t any pictures for this one but I also took a vegan cheesycake that was actually more like a yogurt (and too sweet). And a chocolate cookie. After all of this I was so so full, I end up just going around to see eveything.

Afterthat we headed towards the second venue.

On the way to go there, we have met this adorable fluffly dog. Everyone was petting him.

Next big festival will be on the 27th of November in Leeds. I’ll do anotherr post about it. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoyed this one.

See you!
