When I first made the decision to become a vegan I really thought I would struggle more than I have done. Of course I realised that to a certain extent I would at least be eating healthier, cutting out everyday chocolate bars etc. but I thought I would miss a lot of food more than I do.
Vegan culture and cruelty-free lifestyle
I was recently asked this question, So here’s the answer and I’ll warn you it may turn your stomach.
I recently wrote about my discovery of a vegan antiperspirant. Since then I have had a chance to try it out so I thought I’d give it a little review. So, here it goes.
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.
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.
