Sunday Catch Up (30) - Brighton

Brighton UK Beach seaside

When the sun is shining the best way to spend the day is at the seaside.  My Blogger friend Alice (brighttowngirl.blogspot) and Dairy Free friend Nicola (@N1C79) tempted me head to Brighton with the promise of dairy free/vegan treats at our destination.  First stop was Infinity Foods and the girls were right I was in heaven. It certainly was a treasure trove of treats.  Plenty of free from and Vegan foods to keep me happy with a bakery out back catering for Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free customers.  Here’s what I picked up - Organic Amisa Rice Milk Chocolate Coconut Rice Crackers, the new flavours from Nakd (Rhubarb & Custard & Caffe Mocha), The Raw Chocolate Co Vanoffe Dairy Free bar, Clif Bars (Chocolate Almond Fudge & Crunchy Peanut Butter), Clive’s Soyaroll, Primal Meatless Jerky Strip (Thai peanut) and Infinity Food Vegan Mayonnaise.

Next stop was lunch.  I actually had a little list of eateries that would cater for me. They included  Food for FriendsWai Kika Moo Kau Terre a Terre Pizza Face.   In the end we went around the corner from Infinity Foods to visit their Vegetarian/Vegan Cafe.  I had a Vegan BLT sandwich and the Boyfriend had Chickpea Dahl with Baked Potato.  It was delicious and very exciting to have this much freedom. The Vegan Mayo was by far the best I have tasted so I went back to the shop and brought a jar.

The next stop was Nicola's recommendation.  We visited Boho Gelato an ice cream parlour that also has dairy free options.  They refer to it as Sorbet but it’s unlike any sorbet I have tasted.  Creamy and soft like ice cream not watery and icy.  I had seven flavours to choose from and I selected Grape and Lychee.  I cannot put into words the pure delight to be able to eat ice cream at the seaside, something which most people take for granted.

The rest of the day was spent lapping up the sunshine and browsing the shops.  I brought a lovely picture on the seafront from Zorian Artworks.  This quirky image captured my imagination. The Ducks collection is "documenting the true story of a cargo of rubber ducks, lost at sea 15 years ago in the Pacific ocean and their epic voyage around the world,riding the currents and storms, before reaching landfall in Scotland."

In a nut shell that was my Saturday.  I came home with sore feet and a happy belly.
