Been vegan 20 years. It's easy. So easy I decided to spend the rest of my life helping other people to find out how easy it is too.
Just read the menu for any of our 25 gorgeous vegan restaurants in London, we are so spoiled. Anything except rhubarb, fennel or celery, urg.
inSpiral Lounge, Beatroot, Jai, VitaO, 222, and now that Tibits has proper vegan desserts it joins the list.
Non-vegan friends and relatives no longer make sarcastic comments or worry about me, instead they acknowledge it's good to be vegan or say they're eating less meat these days. We've come a long way.
See my lovely vegan friends, meet new ones, and savour that elation of the first bite of a new dish, or a sumptuous vegan dessert of a kind you thought you'd never have again.
I'm a vegan writer. I compile the book Vegetarian London, which only lists vegan dishes. I love the great vegan friends found through groups like this one.
That sticky toffee pudding at Tibits is my sugar downfall...
Alex, I'm honoured that you've joined the group!
And I agree with you vis a vis too much vegan junk food in London or raw food extremists .. both of which tend to be high in fats: nuts, oils, etc.. causing health issues, weight gain and making us believe that there is something wrong with cooked foods! (one of the reason I started to avoid veggie events.. I couldn't see any sustainable fresh affordable food, but a slow spiral of the fast food world taking over) I'd love to collaborate with you!
nice to meet you last night!
paris vegan trip, i looked on eurostar it was 129 pounds almost twice the price, have you found a cheaper option - thanks
'a month'! I think you're pushing your luck ;-) Glad you've had at least 2 days of birthday fun... so far.
Bonjour Alex! Merci pour ton message et pour les links au sujet de Paris.
Oui, j'ai vraiment hate d'aller a Bristol, ca va etre super chouette!
Bonne semaine et a bientot!
Hi Alex! Great to meet you again on Saturday :)
Hi Alex, sorry I missed you Ftiday - yes it was packed and I had to rush off at the end but hope to catch up with you sometime soon at another event. Have a great week & best wishes, Alison :)
