The Sustainable Living Challenge #1: Going Vegan for a week ft. Happy Panda!

Today’s post has been a while in the making, and now I finally get to share it with all of you. A while ago, Happy Panda and I started discussing some really fun collaboration ideas seeing as we are both passionate about the welfare of the planet and sustainability. One of the ideas we had was to challenge each other to make a week-long lifestyle change and we settled on tackling what we eat. Today, we’re sharing feedback on how the challenge went. I’ll be sharing how Happy Panda managed the challenge I set for her, and she’ll be sharing my thoughts on how I managed her challenge. Be sure to check out both our posts if you can xx

These are just things I’ve found to help me but you know your blog best so always remember to adapt tips so that they fit you and your blog. 

Cinnamon swirl banana bread recipe

For those who remember, one of the things I had on my summer bucket list was to bake banana bread because it was one of the top things to bake during lockdown and my list felt incomplete without it (if you haven’t seen my summer bucket list post, you can check it out here). This recipe isn’t for plain banana bread though – because my family isn’t a huge fan of banana bread, I figured I needed to find a way to spice it up (pun intended) so because they all love cinnamon rolls so much, I decided it might be fun to try and combine those flavours
