Cheat Day: La H es muda

Another weekend, another cheat day woohoo! The second week of this meat reduction diet was really getting me in my feels- craving chicken nuggets and all sorts. Nothing but my willpower led me on to complete another weekday of veggies only. I must admit, I have been eating fish here and there in the canteen…

Vegan Sweet Potato Chili

So far my week without meat is actually going a lot better than I had first anticipated. I am feeling rejuvenated, more proactive and so much more at one with myself. I didn’t think that the food I am eating would have such an effect, but I also think it is partly attributed to a…

That’s it, I’m putting my foot down.

Lately, I’ve really been more aware of what I’m inputting into my body- not saying I am now a new and transformed person, but my conscience is telling me I need to change my eating and drinking habits: Ditch the fizzy drinks This is actually a really difficult one. Coca-Cola is actually one of my…

Christmas Dinner, The Aunt Bessie Dilemma & New Year

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with joy, love and of course, good food! At home, we had a small gathering, and the amount of food cooked could have served an extra ten people!  The best part of having a small party of people and an abundance of food was that we…

What’s Heinz when you got dese beans!?

  Beans, beans are good for your heart, the more you eat the more you… You know the rest. So I’ve been in Spain for just over three months now- nearly four actually and the cost of living here in terms of food and transport is so cheap! Only €20 a month for a travel…

Rosa Negra

Rosa Negra (black rose in English) is a Mexican restaurant in central Madrid and it is the shit. I have to say by far, Rosa Negra is my favourite place to be. We first became acquainted at my bud’s dinner party and our relationship has flourished ever since. In a space of two months, I’ve eaten…

It’s Nacho Regular Nachos

Every now and then, I find something in my fridge that is no longer fit for purpose and in most cases, I throw it away. This time though was a little different. Tortilla wraps last quite a long time once opened but the air had caught them making them stale and dry in areas. I…

Maricastaña: C/ Corredera, Madrid

Roaming the streets of Madrid with one thing in mind. Food. The only problem is that due to the awkward timings here, at around 5pm the majority of restaurants close and reopen later in the evening. This is not good when you haven’t eaten since breakfast, and your stomach is verbally threatening your life if…

RueDoes Prawn & Vegetable Stir-Fry

Today I will be sharing with you a quick and easy recipe that I love to make when I have little time on my hands. I’m sure all of you have had a stir-fry before, and what’s so great about it is that you can cater it to your own taste. There are loads of…

Friends that eat together, stay together: Part Two

I’d say now, I have finally settled into my new job in Madrid and I have had many adventures so far that I will be sharing with you in future posts. Having to recollect all these memories of where I have eaten and who with before I flew out to Spain is actually making me…

RueDoes Vegetarianism (for a week)

It has been a week since I moved to Spain and I’ve settled pretty nicely into my flat and my new town. My flatmate Nicole and I are getting on really well and it is actually astonishing how alike we are! She defines herself as a “meat-reductionist” which means that she is a vegetarian most…
