Ethical & Conscious Clothing and Ending Modern Day Slavery

Trinity Bourne: I can’t help but feel that there is something terribly wrong with our world when over 1,134 children, women and men fall to their death in a tragically unsafe building designed to churn out cheap clothing for people in the western world.

Spicy Spelt Biscuits (sugar-free and vegan)

Trinity Bourne: Sometimes all you need is a simple biscuit, so I came up with a tasty little treat. The delicate hint of warming spices entwines softly with a playful infusion of lemon and orange zest; whilst the date that sweetens this biscuit balances and brings the best out in everything. Spelt works well in this recipe as a nutritionally superior and healthier alternative to its distant hybridized cousin wheat. I also negate the need for diary by using organic coconut butter, making for a well-rounded, healthy, sweet treat.
