- Jane Travers
- Three and a half years ago I became vegetarian. Three and a half weeks ago, anticipating a certain health diagnosis at any time, I also gave up all added sugar in my diet. My mother is of a certain generation and, although a very good cook, struggles to know what to offer guests with specific dietary restrictions. She once had a vegetarian and a coeliac for dinner at the same time, and nearly lost her reason! So, the idea for this blog was born. Every recipe that features here will be vegan (and, obviously, vegetarian), gluten free, sugar free, lactose and dairy free, and suitable for people on a low sodium diet. That's right, you read that correctly. Even if you have guests with each of these restrictions coming to the same meal, everything here is safe for them. And, before you expect weird and wonderful ingredients to make an appearance, everything I'm using can be bought in larger branches of all major supermarkets - you don't even need to visit health food stores. Try the recipes and tell me what you think!
So What's This Tweet Treats Thingy All About?

It's been about thirty-six hours since starting this #tweettreat campaign, and I'm pleased to report that we now have over 100 recipes!
That's a brilliant amount so far, but we still need so many more. So, if you're making an interesting sandwich this afternoon, tell us about it. Having a BBQ? Got a great marinade recipe? Tell us about it! Going out tonight and looking forward to your favourite cocktail? Tell us about it! Making a snack for the kids? Yes, tell us about that too!
We have recipes for things as diverse as vegan sandwiches and exotic cocktails. If you can eat or drink it, get it into 140 characters and tweet it to @janetravers or use the #tweettreat hashtag.
All the proceeds of this book will go to a good cause. All I'm asking for is a little bit of thought and a tweet. Or two. Or ten, quite honestly!
Huge thanks to all the contributors to date. Please keep them coming!
Now, I'd love to get some recipes from celebrities. Anyone who has connections, please ask nicely for me.
Keep up the good work, everyone!
