Veganuary – have you gone meat free this month?
Veganuary is an international campaign aimed at encouraging people to be vegan for the whole of January. https://veganuary.com
Concern for animals, taking better care of the earth’s resources and the environment, the health advantages of a plant-based diet or curiosity are just some of the reasons for over 50,000 UK people taking up the veganuary pledge
If being vegan for a whole 31 days seems too much of a challenge then why not try taking part in the ‘Meat Free Monday’ campaign, originally started by the late Linda McCartney. If you need recipe ideas then have a look at the ones I have created for you. http://www.nutrition-coach.co.uk/blog/category/recipes/
Who can resist the ultimate comfort food – LM vegan sausage and onion sandwiches!
Eating vegan food is now easier than ever, thanks to raised awareness, an increase in veganism and the availably of foods on the High Street, in restaurants and supermarkets. For instance Pizza Hut recently announced that all of their restaurants will now stock vegan cheese, after it was successfully trailed; Zizzi and Pizza Express have been serving great vegan options for a number of months.
Last Autumn Waggamamas laughed a new vegan and vegetarian range
Many coffee shops now serve vegan sweet treats, sandwich shops like Pret have even created a number of vegan only outlets and Boots have created a range of vegan wraps and sandwiches.
Our local Morrisons supermarket in Nottingham has a whole aisle and chiller cabinet dedicated to vegan produce, making it nice and easy to buy just what I’m looking for
And small independents are also keen to attract new vegan customers; Chocks away https://www.facebook.com/Chocks-Away-Nottingham-City-Airport-379455688792762/ a cafe linked to Nottingham City airport has increased its range of vegan options
And No 12 Hounds Gate https://www.no12houndsgate.co.uk , Nottingham is a new vegan and vegetarian only cafe
And pubs like the Angel microbrewery in Nottingham City centre http://www.angelmicrobrewery.com and the Horse and Plough http://www.castlerockbrewery.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/April-menu-Vegan-1.pdf at Bingham are really flying the vegan flag
