Katy, live in Sarf London, Vegan since autumn 2011, I follow the McDougall regime about 90% of the time. Interested in everything except eating animals. Have lived in London for 25 years and work in a museum. For me the glass is usually half full.
I'm a McDougaller. I break it occasionally, usually just through bad planning but as time has passed I've enjoyed the food I ate that wasn't vegan less and less. Having McDougalled for so long I find some vegan food a bit oily. I started for health reasons and found that the ethical aspect (which caused me to be veggie when younger) crept up and shook me by the throat.
champagne (on very special occasions of course!)
don't eat out much because its ridiculously expensive, portions are minute and you have no idea what is in a dish. Usually just go to Wholemeal in Streatham as I've been going there since I came to London in '82 and it's convenient. Getting a bit bored with the vegan option there though - I think it's been the same dish the last 3 visits - must branch out. Went to the Bonnington Café recently and remembered how divine it is ...
They don't often ask but I was asked by a vegetarian at work if I was sure I got enough protein forgetting that there is protein in foods other than meat and dairy.
I'd like to share meals with other vegans and broaden my culinary repertoire. Also love opera so if anyone is interested in going sometime please let me know.
OK so far - I'm no longer a bookclub virgin :-)
Hi Katherine, hope you get to some more meetups soon. If I have time in the coming weeks, I'll attend another Vegan one, probably in Jericho. Also good luck with the thing we were talking about and hope to see you out this way again soon!
