Veganism Is Not Just For Hippies

Veganism has an image problem. Ask anybody what thoughts the word veganism conjures up and chances are that most people will mention the word 'hippie' in their response. Being vegan is associated with a counterculture that is based on a stereotype of free-love, flowers-in-the-hair and peaceful anarchy. Vegans are seen as soft, out of touch... Continue Reading →

Vegan Bagel Burger

For a slightly guilty dinner tonight we made some indulgent, juicy vegan burgers using 'Vivera 100% Plant Based Veggie Steak'. The veggie steaks were cooked in the oven at 200C for 20 mins. Once cooked we then laid slices of Violife Original 'Cheese' on top of the burgers and put them back under the grill... Continue Reading →

It's also something that seems to be perpetuated ad infinitum by the dairy industry itself. Aren't they nice, caring about our health so much!... Continue Reading →

Veganism: Why Not Vegetarianism?

I need to preface this post by making it abundantly clear that this is in no way a criticism of vegetarianism - anybody who has taken the conscious decision to make an ethical change to their life in the hope of reducing the needless suffering of animals deserves to be commended. What I do believe,... Continue Reading →

Vegan Nutrition: A Learning Curve

Diving headlong into such a dramatic change like going vegan obviously required some adjustments in my day-to-day life. Chief amongst these was learning how to decipher long lists of ingredients - trying to recognise words that may as well have been written in Latin and determining whether they were animal derivatives. Thus is the plight... Continue Reading →
