Do you know the post-festival blues?

What's your favourite brunch food? ๐Ÿด๐Ÿฅž ๐Ÿฅ— ๐Ÿณ ๐Ÿฅ‘ ๐Ÿฅ I've been making my own beans for a few years, stashing portions in the freezer for the ultimate weekend brunch ๐Ÿด I went off avocado after a run of really big, creamy avos, and I'd feel guilty about leaving half, browning in the fridge, ending up unwanted ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ™ˆ So I'm sharing these green dudes with avo monster @snowreel & this week I got perfectly small avos from @oddboxldn so I can enjoy a little midweek salad too โœ๐Ÿป #veganbrunch #bruhnch #weekendslikethese #oddbox #wonkyvegrevolution #zerowaste #kalesome #tahinioneverything #homemadebeans #myotherhalf๐Ÿฅ‘ #victorialiveshere

Do you know what is really nice? ๐Ÿ‘€ Plant Basedโž•Vegan menus in more & more restaurants ๐ŸŒฑ Call it what you want, it is such an overwhelming feeling to finally get to choose my dinner without making a fuss, hoping for a favour from the kitchen, already under enough pressure ๐Ÿ”ฅ I no longer have anxiety eating out, I feel confident going anywhere in central London for a good meal ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ It looks like the struggle was worth it in the end โœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿด@movingmountainsfoods #foodforall #foodanxiety #plantbased #movingmountains #londonvegan #veganlondon #veganburger #vegancheese #oldcomptonstreet #soholondon #everybodyeatswhentheycometomyhouse #victoriaonthego

Eye spy ๐Ÿ‘ I read somewhere recently, when you meet someone for the first time, try to notice their eye colour ๐ŸŽจ The idea is to make deeper connections with people, starting from that first introduction ๐ŸŒš๐ŸŒ We are so quick to look away, maybe out of fear, habit, custom, but maybe we miss the real person in front of us ๐Ÿ™ˆ So, new friends, I'm going to look you in the eyes, and remember their colour, but also you โœจ #social #anxiety #icebreaker #firstimpressions #howyoumakemefeel #eyecontact #meaningfulconnections #victorialiveshere #victoriaonthego

Autumn glow ๐Ÿ Walking home from an inspiring talk on #zerowaste living by the owner of @thesourceunitedkingdom ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ I reflected on the past year of โœ–๏ธnothing newโœ–๏ธand longtime goals of reducing packaging and eliminating food waste ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป But I know I can do so much more, which I am excited to share with you ๐Ÿ“ฏ When I got home in the end, dinner was ready, this tomato tart with vegan cheeze and woodland mushrooms ๐Ÿ‚ #husbandswhocook #tomatotart #woodlandmushrooms #natoora #vegantart #whoyoucallingatart #zerowaste #bulkfoods #violifecheese #anarmymarchesonitsstomach #autumneats #girlboss #womeninbusiness #victorialiveshere

Do you know what's scary ๐Ÿ‘ป โ”โ”โ”The huge amount of food that is wasted in the UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง 10 million tonnes every year, 3 million of which is wasted before it hits the shelves ๐Ÿƒ This amount could nourish 20,000 people for a YEAR ๐Ÿฝ I want to improve those stats, so for the past month I've subscribed to @oddboxldn London wonky veg delivery ๐Ÿ“ฆ if you have been keeping up with my stories ๐Ÿ‘€ you'll know it's amazing!

This year has brought so many challenges yet even more celebrations, and my body has worn all of it with immense strength and beauty. I now see how powerful that is, and promise to take better care of this shell while I embody it ๐Ÿš I'm grateful to @nude_yogagirl for asking us all to look at ourselves in a new light #nygyoga ๐Ÿ•ฏ And to @snowreel for always looking at me in a new light ๐Ÿ“ธ And Flo for seeing the best in me always ๐Ÿพ #yogachallenge #nudeyogagirl #nygchallenge #nudeyoga #flospiration #flostagram #nudedogs #ladybits #dogmother #motheranddaughter #earthsuits #mybody #strongbody #plantbae #husbandsofinstagram #paintmelikeoneofyourfrenchgirls #victorialiveshere

Plat Vegan โœจโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’š I haven't had a chance to reflect much on my little walk in the woods in September. The day after we finished walking, I had booked a yoga class to restore our aching bodies, then somehow chanced upon a ๐Ÿ’ฏ proper vegan lunch in tiny Auch ๐Ÿž I believe the universe is bountiful, but we must give of ourselves to receive ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Have you had happy food surprises when travelling?

I've been thinking about the hidden value of staycations ๐Ÿ› Weekends in residence, stretching time ใ€ฐ venturing out for yoga classes, rainy dog walks & bread โœŒ๐Ÿป And getting to know our ordinary selves.. .. things happen like D demo'ing how to make the most of tempeh & me showing off with celery leaves ๐Ÿƒ It really begs the question ใ€ฐ why go anywhere else? Are you itching to get away from it all or scrambling for more of the here & now? #wanderlust #homebody #netflix #hygge #autumnvibes #bestill #coupleswhoyoga #coupleswhocook #tempe #tempeh #tempegram #saltbae #husbandsofinstagram #frenchvegan #enjoyeverything #victorialiveshere ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ@snowreel

I wanted to post a photo of you, but I landed on this instead @snowreel ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ Thank you David for supporting me through periods of personal growth as well as the challenges we overcome together ๐ŸŒฟ This line was given to me to read in a theatre performance The Burning Tower from #spidtheatre ๐ŸŽญ #theburningtower ๐Ÿ’š #westlondoncommunity #westisbest #whomakesyoubetter #givefreely #lovedeeply #livetruly #foundnotes #husbandsofinstagram #victoriaonthego

Most people know I am mostly interested in vegetables & yoga ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฅ’ Lately I feel like I have no time or energy to bring to classes or for creating in the kitchen โณBut I know I won't grow if I don't let myself rest โŒ›๏ธ So I am gratefully receiving the gifts of restorative yoga & the ease of a stir fry bowl, eaten in a cosy jumper with the night falling outside โœจ #metime #intuitiveeating #burnout #sad #seasonalaffectivedisorder #takingiteasy #postholidayblues #stirfrybowl #beansprouts #restorativeyoga #ifyoucanyoumust #yogaworks #breathing #victorialiveshere

On a little country retreat with @elayne_tc we whiled away a morning gathering these oddly perfect, organic Buckinghamshire apples, warming up with cups of tea and toast.

'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.' Virginia Woolf ๐Ÿบ For me, when I eat intuitively, my body is calm, my mind is at rest, and I can go about my day doing all the things I love โœจ #intuitiveeating isn't for everyone but it's my way of being a good listener โžฐas with so many things, it starts with myself ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿผ Shout out to my local vegan community founded & fed by @portobello_vegan ๐Ÿ’šโœŒ๐Ÿป #portobellovegannightmarket ๐ŸŒ†#plantbased #eatwhatyoulove #freetolive #freetolove #setyourspiritfree #virginiawoolfquotes #victoriaonthego #victorialiveshere ๐Ÿ“ธ @snowreel

When in France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ›ฉ Did you know you can find vegan restaurants ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป The only surprise was that they didn't serve any wine, which in the #sudouest is pretty tough! But the homemade kombucha was on point ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Enough about the food & drink @invitafreshfood, the people working there were amazing and kind to a couple of hungry & tired travellers. Which is always the best part of going out to eat, don't you think? #veganinfrance #wheninfrance #toulousevegan #platvegan #dailyspecial #veganquiche #thekindnessofstrangers #cucumbergazpacho #victoriaonthego

I found this beautiful Aub in a 3 for a pound bowl at a market, just look at that profile ๐Ÿ—ฟI long for the day that wonky veg isn't just sold loose & cheap ๐Ÿ˜‰but is also desirable for its differences. I love getting a two legged carrot in my "wonky" bag @waitrose ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿฅ•Yet double yolkers are sold at a premium ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ What do you love finding as part of nature's whimsy?
