London Vegan Pledge - part 2

Not yet vegan? But interested in trying a vegan diet?

The London Vegan Pledge offers you the chance to try being vegan for a month, with dedicated help and support.

Once you have registered, you will be invited to attend a FREE
two-part "Introduction to Veganism" course. The sessions take place at the start and end of your vegan month on Sunday 12 May and Sunday 9 June from 11am–4pm at a venue in central London.

These informative events include: speakers, films, delicious vegan food, cookery demos, free recipe booklets, and basic health and nutrition advice from a GP and registered dietician. At the first meeting you will also be introduced to your vegan buddy who will support you during your month.

And all of this is completely free!

RSVPing to this Meetup neither commits you to attending nor guarantees you a place. If you'd like to attend, please register at: http://www.vegancampaigns.org.uk/pledge

And if you're already vegan, but would like to volunteer, please contact us at: http://www.vegancampaigns.org.uk/contact-us

You can find the Meetup for the first part here:

    I'm the guy with the Veggie Guides stall who wrote Vegetarian London. I'm doing a new book called How to be Vegan - for life, covering all aspects of being vegan, as incredibly there is no such book at present that covers ALL the areas. I'd love to hear from pledgers about what you most wanted to know, and what solutions you found. Come and talk to me on Sunday, or email me [masked] The idea is to get this book published by the end of July!

      Yes, dentistry was completely off my vegan radar until Beata started asking about it. I'm just waiting on a date from the dentist before I announce my Kingston event.

      Richard, I started thinking about it because I haven't seen any info about dentistry. I thought if I find a vegan dentist she or he will know what the fillings are made of, if they were tested on animals, etc.

    Thank you Richard for your kind words. Sadly, my father died 30th April. It's been an emotional month.

      I'm so sorry to hear of your family's loss Belinda. Please do message me if you need a 'virtual' shoulder to cry on, or someone outside of your family to vent any anger on (the medical profession does a wonderful job, but I've found the mindset of 'conventional'­ training, practice and medication can often be very frustrating).

      Hi Richard, sorry for the delay and thank you for your offer. I've been keeping busy and also back into my running - which is very therapeutic. I am hoping to be able to make some of the meetups soon and get to know people.

      Yes, absolutely, and it was good that some pledgers who couldn't make part 1 were able to join us this time.

    Good luck to all new vegans! Have been developing some really 'Easy Peasy Vegan' recipes-so feel free to ask me about them and how to easily avoid palm oil in your food (which is also bad for animals).

    Our thoughts go out to you Belinda, I hope your father is 'comfortable' (I lost my mum almost 2 years ago, after a very long fight with cancer and 'conventional' treatments)...

    Looking forward to the second meeting and finding out how the pledgers went with their 30 day vegan challenge :)
