New day, new year, new blog

I am not a nugget


See that cute little chicken over there? He’s not food! But what else can you eat? Plenty, actually. We’re sisters living in Brisbane who refuse to eat things with faces – Koren is vegetarian and Alana has recently become a vegan.

It’s a lifestyle that’s growing in popularity and often reaches far beyond just food choices. But going sans meat – sans cruelty, really – still presents the odd challenge or unpredictable but amusing result (stand by for the story of the deodorant that made Alana smell like Clag glue).

We know there are others out there who share similar values so we decided to create this little blog and celebrate ways to live a modern life in an ethical, cruelty-free and environmentally-friendly way.

We’ll share our favourite vegan and vegetarian recipes, the best local eats without meat, hits and misses on the cosmetic front, and photos and tips from our “crafternoons” spent making our own clothes, party decorations and presents.


– Alana and Koren

    Koren you know my thoughts on carnivorous culinary delights. That said I do also do a great line in vegetable matter. Remind me to pass on some of my recipes for the likes of spicy dahl, eggplant parmigana and various soups: pumpkin soup baked in the hollowed out pumpkin – with or without a touch of bacon, sorry – is a beautiful thing.

      Yum, Syvie! That pumpkin number sounds especially delish so I’ll forgive you for the bacon. Consider yourself enlisted.
