Baahh! I'm Lucky the Lamb. Lucky because I was rescued by a farm sanctuary who's lovely owners were kind enough to save me and my siblings from becoming lamb chops. I don't understand why anyone would want to eat a baby like me? I'm just 6 months old and only just discovering the world! 

I love to frolic and jump around with my friends at the sanctuary (Piggles is my bestie!). I also enjoy cosy cuddles from human visitors. At the farm sanctuary, we all have a job to do (except Piggles.. he's lazy!) and mine is to keep the kitchen organised. With the 'shear' amount of choice available these days it can be confusing to know which kitchen equipment and ingredients you need. 

Just because it's you, I'll share my secret list of the most essential kitchen equipment and staple ingredients to help you get organised and ready to make tasty plant-based recipes right away. If ever you need more help in the kitchen, I'm just a Baahh away :)

Lucky recommends:

  • No need to invest in lots of new & expensive equipment right away. A small blender and a small/medium food processor will work great for preparing most WFPB recipes. And don't forget, you'll probably be able to get them second hand! All the rest is optional, depending on how much time, budget and enthusiasm you have for experimenting.

  • Check out your local package-free bulk stores, farmers markets and independent organic grocers, to avoid plastic packaging and get the most nutritional produce. 

  • Take reusable bags and containers for carrying your ingredients home to reduce waste and help the environment. You can also visit Terrence the Turtle for his expert tips on reducing waste
