New Vegan Eatery, Fressh, Opens in Birmingham

Fressh - vegan cafe Birmingham

As veganism rises, new and exciting restaurants and cafes appear. Fressh is the second 100% vegan cafe (that I know about!) in Birmingham city centre offering a range of quick breakfast and lunch options.

Tucked away in one of Birmingham's many arcades, Fressh is located in City Arcade, Union Street in the centre of Birmingham, just behind the main high street. Like its name the interior and decor is very simple, clean and 'fresh' looking.

The menu is simple, but done well, offering for lunch a selection of salads, burgers, wraps and pasta pots. Gluten free options are also available, as well as a breakfast menu but I didn't look at that.

New Brunch Menu at Natural Healthy Foods, Birmingham

Natural Healthy Foods, Birmingham

I'm not a vegetarian but I enjoy exploring vegetarian food, and I try to be conscious about how much meat I am eating, and where that meat is coming from, so when I got invited to try out the new breakfast and brunch menu at Natural Healthy Foods in Birmingham city centre, I couldn't resist.

Natural Healthy Foods, located on Suffolk Street Queensway, a short walk from Grand Central and Birmingham New Street Station, is a 100% vegan store and eatery, with almost all of it's products also being organic, free from refined sugar and gluten free.

Recipe: M&M Chocolate Flapjacks

M&M Chocolate Flapjacks

I said i'd got some more autumn recipes up my sleeve, so here's my second one. Flapjacks. But not just standard flapjacks, these ones are extra naughty as they're topped with milk chocolate AND chocolate M&Ms.

I always think flapjacks are an easy bake and one that's great when you fancy a sweet treat but don't want to make anything fancy. You can make this recipe with pretty much just store cupboard essentials and the results are delicious.
