Lunch out


As many of you know I can't eat out at present because of following the low fodmap diet. I have made a couple of exceptions and have been to our local Vegan cafe, I had a jackfruit sandwich there a couple of weeks ago and had no reaction at all. Unfortunately they didn't have jackfruit today so bent over backwards to accommodate my diet and made me up a sandwich I could eat. They were checking labels on food, they couldn't have done enough.

I will definitely support this independently run cafe, it's so good.

On another note, I needed new shoes, didn't know where to go so checked online for Vegan shoes, well done to New Look for their lovely shoes, here's a photo of them.

Vegan shoes from New Look - who would have thought it? They look comfy.

Glad you have a nice local cafe to visit, I tried a jackfruit sausage yesterday - very nice indeed

I know, I was very happy, things are improving.

It's a lovely cafe, ooh I love the sound of a jackfruit sausage.😋

Hey Alicia, those shoes are made for walking...🏃‍♀️ so I'm very pleased for you that you have found some great shows.

As for your local cafe they deserve your support for going the extra mile so I'm impressed.

They really are Jerry, I now need to get rid of my other ones that leak and will ensure that they are recycled in some way.

Yes my local café were excellent and I'm going to write to them to thank them for the amount of effort they put in yesterday. I'll be going back for sure.

Have a good day.

Alicia :)


These look good Alicia. I was surprised to see “vegan” shoes in Debenhams and M and S. Very good of your cafe to accommodate you.

Thank you Ali and they are so comfortable. It's great isn't it, there are more and more places that are stocking vegan products and not with a hiked price either, now that is good news.

The Vegan café were absolutely amazing, they went over and above to accommodate. I have a lot of friend that aren't Vegan so I'm trying to convince some of them that I know are more open to meet me in the café. Much better to support local.
