Phoebe & Lily Lawson  #vegansisters on an odyssey to live more kindly wherever we may find ourselves. 📍#mumbai 📍#capetown

@owaysteacafe is a fabulous little spot in Claremont if you are a tea lover. I discovered this gem when I went tea tasting their a few years ago, and highly recommend that if you are interested in or enjoy tea that you book a tea tasting (it also makes for a great present). Beyond all the fabulous teas, I love that Oways is fully vegetarian with vegan options, including vegan raw cheese cake. This is a piece of the chocolate orange raw cheese cake that we devoured with our tea.

#sugarfreeseptember day 12 ENERGY 💫🌟 It is so important to give your energy to people you love, and those who are deserving. It is so important to spend time with those who don’t drain your energy but instead make you feel alive. When we are in the same city we are stuck to each other with invisible glue.We do almost each and everything single thing together and never get sick of each other. Both of us are very energy sensitive and there are very very few people with whom we can spend so much time and not feel drained by! Remember everything is energy and what you give is what you get. #vegansiaterodyssey #veganblog #vegansisters #vegan #lawsonsisters #energy

Traveling as a vegan can be tough. Especially when you are in a country that doesn’t even use the same alphabet as you and vegetarians are few and far between, let alone vegans... But persevere, you will find vegans and vegan options wherever you go.
The other night I was thrilled to try my first traditional Korean dish — bibimbap. This is served with an egg on top, so all you have to do is ask for it without an egg... In Korean. I got lucky this time as a korean friend did the talking for me, but it’s one of the sentences I plan on learning... Vegan bibimbap, is basically a rice dish with lots of vegetables, seaweed and a chilli sauce — almost like a Buddha bowl.

SUGAR FREE SEPTEMBER DAY 9 SNACK #latergram 🌟
.
We never understood the appeal of nachos. Corn chips smothered in cheese and a few other things. Well, if you too are not a nachos person, or if you are a nachos person, all of you need to try @plantcafe nachos. My God, dear sweet Lord, they are delicious !!! And the best part to eating their super tasty nachos, is that you know that they are nourishing too. Yes folks you read correctly, nourishing nachos! Plant was the first vegan restaurant we ever went to, so it will always hold a special place in our heart. We usually order these nachos as a starter for the table and then end up ordering another portion to share again as a starter. Deeeeeeeelicious!!!

#sugarfreeseptember2018 day 7 MOTIVATING QUOTE “ Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. “ Dalai Lama . 🌟
A core value on both sides of our family is to be kind. Our mum is kind , our dad is kind , our granny is kind , our aunts and uncle and our lovely step mum is also so kind. We truly value kindness and always try our best to be kind to each other , to others , the planet and animals . 💖 #bekind #vegan #veganblogger #vegansistersodyssey #lawsonsisters #kindness #sugarfreeseptember #vegangirls #veganlife #vegan #veganmodel #veganteacher #southafricanvegans #veganjourney #love #quotes

#sugarfreeseptember2018 Day 6 #sleep
Sleep is so important for a healthy functioning body and brain, both too much and too little aren’t good for you. We are both very early risers no matter how late we went to sleep the previous night, which can be frustrating sometimes.. we also both need a minimum number of hours for our bodies to function properly. Nothing more precious than seeing animals sleeping or even a human baby. Animals include chickens roosting, cows basking in the sunlight as they take an afternoon nap and digest their lunch, animals includes these two cats - the kitten is looking for a forever home in #mumbai. - When you see any animal sleeping peacefully be it a dog, horse, owl, goat, duck, pig, cow or chicken do you ever think “hmmm delicious” or do you stop and say, “awww cute” , or “look how sweet” ? ... There’s some food for thought, no pun intended... #truenature #vegan #compassion #compassionateliving #consciousliving #vegan #veganblog #vegansisters #vegansistersodyssey #lawsonsisters #sugarfreeseptember #cats #mumbaiadoptions

DAY 5 #sugarfreeseptember2018 sugar alternative ... well the obvious choice for a sweet treat that’s not a sweet is fruit ! Fruit contains so much of its own sugar there really is no need for consuming refined sugar. We are huge fruit lovers! Dragon fruit isn’t exactly sweet but it’s still a treat and you can pull down its scaly skin and eat it like an ice cream on the go . Fruit provides great energy to the body along with the added benefits of fibre and vitamins. Always aim for your basic 5 servings daily of fruit and vegetables when you start your journey towards a healthy lifestyle. Once you get the hang of counting and the taste and love for different fruits and vegetables then suddenly before you know it you won’t have any need to count nor to eat processed foods. Baby steps . Same with veganism . Baby steps and do things in your time . We are all on our own journey, and if you fall off the wagon, the important thing is not the falling, but the getting back up and onto the wagon. Have a beautiful Friday ! And eat more fruit 🍇 🍈 🍉 #vegansistersodyssey #lawsonsisters #vegan #vegansisters #fruit #dragonfruit #veganblog #sugarfreeseptember

Day 4 #sugarfreeseptember2018 MORNING TEA . We have switched to loose leaf tea. Not only does it taste better, but it’s also way better for the environment. Most tea bags are not biodegradable, come wrapped in all sorts of extra packaging, and in India each tea bag is wrapped in a pointless piece of plastic. All of which ends up in landfills . Using loose leaf tea is also more economical and we have found the teas to be more delicious!

Further more, did you know that tea bag bags are bleached, which means with every cuppa, you’re drinking a bit of bleach ! Most paper tea bags contain a nasty chemical called Epichloroydrin - which is a chemical used as a pesticide, and it’s definitely not good for your immune system.
If you examine a tea bag, you’ll see that it’s mostly dust and basically the scraps of tea. We will definitely be posting more about various teas in the near future and why you should switch to loose leaf tea. Pictured here is our #camomile from @owaysteacafe - usually had at night to calm and relax us but had today as a morning treat .
