Today is the annual #WorldFoodDay, so we figured it’s a good opportunity to talk a bit more about our mission and our charity partner ITM, Indonesian Tempe Movement.
It's the world's best kept protein secret! Put simply, tempeh (pronounced tem-pay) fermentation takes any legume, nut, grain or seed (it’s typically made using soybeans) and transforms them into an even better food source.
We’ve been reminded that giving and helping someone in need are things that help also the giver, not just the receiver. For instance, the messages we received regarding the tempeh care packs we sent out have brought us more joy than we can explain - they’ve made our day numerous times. So, we wanted to put together a list of some amazing organisations that are worth donating to if you’re able to do so.
We’ve created a list of some amazing veggie eateries in London to celebrate the delicious plant-based food that is made in this city.
We dive into veganism, plant-based eating, privilege and our desire to make vegan foods more accessible and affordable to all.
Exciting news! Through our partnership with rePurpose Global, we’re now contributing to the removal of the same amount of plastic from the environment as we use in our packaging and shipping, making us the first Plastic Neutral meat-alternative company in the world (isn’t that wild?!).
No matter whether you’re relying on old trusted recipes, sustaining mainly on pizza and chocolate or trying out new recipes like nobody’s business, we all need to limit time spent outside and the number of trips to the shops. Also, queues to online food deliveries ain’t always short...So, it’s in our (and the planet’s) best interest to really make the most out of the foods we have at home. We have an opportunity to discover new ways of using ingredients we might normally discard and get savvy in the kitchen, so let’s embrace it and make it delicious!
Losing yourself into a good book with a cup of tea and some biscuits or chocolate is definitely an activity that brings us joy - especially nowadays. Diving into a captivating book can help you forget the worries of the world for a while, and then surface again recharged and refreshed. So, instead of talking about tempeh, plant-based diet or ways to go green, we wanted to do something different today and share some of our favourite reads with you.
Since tofu and tempeh are both typically made with soybeans and sold in a block, we often get asked whether they’re the same. As you might have guessed from the title of this blog, they’re not - they’re both awesome, but in different ways. So, how exactly do these two plant-based pals differ? We’re glad you asked.
“So, you eat soy? But what about all the issues, such as extreme deforestation, caused by soy production? Doesn’t sound very sustainable to me.”
Although variety is the spice of life, it doesn’t mean we should forget about last night’s leftovers or all the other ingredients we already have hiding in our fridges and pantries.
We wholeheartedly believe that mental health should never be pushed aside or to be left in the dark corners. Mental health deserves our attention, not only when there are heavy, grey clouds hanging above our heads but also in the normal day to day.
If the past weeks have taught us anything it’s that we’ve got a lot of anti-racism work to do, and opting out of it is not an option. It’s about time we all take the time to actively fight for racial justice, and take action to ensure that BIPOC are not only safe but have the same opportunities to thrive in this society as white people.
In the first post, we talked about how you can make a positive difference by reducing food waste, embracing the wonderful world of plant-based eating and opting for organic. The previous post, in turn, tackled renewable energy, ethical banking and browsing the web the green way. This time, we’re focusing on why sometimes (often) and on some (many) areas of our lives, less is more.
The wait is over and the time has come for part two of our ‘Let’s go green!’ mini series! In this post, we’re tackling the following sexy topics: electricity, banking and browsing the web. These might not sound like the most riveting subjects but please bear with us - this trio is actually important and can really help you green up your act ;)
So you signed up for Veganuary but are struggling to keep up with all the changes? Keep calm, there is no need to panic! Just like so many things in life, Veganuary doesn’t have to be all or nothing, and a setback doesn’t equal failure. And if you need some inspiration and tips to keep going, we got your back.

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week so we thought it was a good opportunity to talk about issues close to our hearts: mental wellbeing and worthiness.
Driando, a co-founder of Better Nature, reflects on where tempeh comes from and the significance of the relationship between Indonesia and tempeh.
It’s easy to feel defeated in the face of news about the state of the world, climate and environment but don’t lose hope. The best antidote to feeling hopeless or anxious is action. If you want to go green in 2020 but aren’t sure how to do so, we have some ideas for you. The first part of our new mini series is focused on how you can help protect this precious planet through food.
