Houmous is so expensive to buy in supermarkets, but is relatively cheap to make at home, plus you can tailor it to your own specific taste. Houmous is a great source of fibre, protein, iron and calcium, it’s super stuff for Vegans.
Vegan culture and cruelty-free lifestyle
After a routine blood test, my Doctor tells me I’m folic acid deficient and she believes the cause to be dietary, because I’m Vegan?! Which is insane.
The chances are you are aware of plans to build a mega dairy in Nocton, if not simply google the phrase ‘Nocton Mega Dairy’ and you’ll find a wealth of information on the subject. Frankly this is a disgrace and we can’t sit back and allow this to happen in the UK. I’ve been in touch with Compassion in World Farming and they’ve informed me that there is a couple of steps we can take to oppose this.
Last night my wife and I went to our local Co-operative store and in the cosmetics section came across what could possibly be vegan antiperspirant.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish our readers a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Whilst most of the UK is sitting down to their big turkey dinner we’ll be having our home-made nut roast (I keep nagging Charlotte to post the recipe) with sweet potatoes, sprouts, parsnips, sage and onion, carrots and swede. The intention is to leave enough over for bubble and squeak tomorrow.
Last night I sat down to aimlessly watch some television before I drifted off to sleep and a BBC Panorama special on the price of cheap foods in supermarkets came on. This program partly focused on mega-dairy factory farming. Of course as a vegan I knew of factory farming but this really turned my stomach.
Here at the Veggie Blog we’d like to apologise for the site laying dormant the past couple of months. Unfortunately we lost focus of what we were trying to achieve here and hence the site was neglected. All that is going to change in 2011.
Probably one of the hardest parts of clothing yourself as a Vegan is finding suitable footwear. Quality shoes that look and feel great without containing any form of animal skin are hard to come by. For a long long time I have endorsed Converse Chuck Taylors as they are vegan, look good and until my latest pair, comfortable.
Being a Vegan is no easy task and it’s certainly not something to be taken lightly either. In this post I’m not going to go over reasons why you should be Vegan. That’s your choice and if you’re reading this then you’re most likely considering doing so anyway. I’m just going to give you a few tips on how to make that leap into fully fledged Veganism.
I remember when Charlotte and I first hatched the idea of writing a blog together. There was never any doubt on what we would write about either. As once vegetarians and now vegans we are no strangers to the struggles of getting by without compromising our beliefs. We know it’s not easy so we wanted to share what we have learned over the years.
