First things first, Happy New Year everyone! It's January 2018 which means that Veganuary is well and truly underway.
Last month I was thrilled to be invited to the Veganuary 2018 campaign launch in London. The charity’s founders, partners Jane Land and Matthew Glover have already seen such huge success since launching it in 2014; each year inspiring and encouraging more and more people to sign up and try going vegan for Januar...Read Full Post »

So demand for vegan festive food products has lead to Tesco DOUBLING vegan and veggie Christmas food – and if that doesn’t tell you that veganism is here to stay, I don’t know what will. Supermarkets have really gone all out this year with the vegan products, even the vegan sandwiches (blog post on that coming soon). ‘Marks & Spencers’, a supermarket renowned for having a pretty poor selection of vegan food now has brought out a selection of vegan-frie...Read Full Post »

‘Yo Sushi’ is one of my personal favourites; I’ve never had problems at their restaurants, all of the vegan dishes are delicious, you can order HUGE bowls of certain dishes, and you can get 25% student discount. I couldn’t possibly list all of the options, but some of my favourites are, tofu katsu curry, pumpkin katsu, yasai yakisoba, and kakiage vegetable tempura. Also, if you aren’t eligible for student discount, I...Read Full Post »

When any VegFest event comes around I can never contain my excitement…or my wallet And this year’s London event saw a record-breaking number of visitors from around the country flocking to the city – Approximately 14,000 of them!! And with around 280 stalls it was one of the biggest vegan festivals in the UK thus far and that’s not including the yummy caterers.
I attende...Read Full Post »

In the news recently, a young bull escaped from a slaughterhouse in Brooklyn, New York and it was all over US TV as the authorities tried to catch him. Thankfully people from an animal sanctuary in New Jersey raced to his aid and he is now in their care, where he will live a happy and long life amongst fellow rescued animals from the meat and dairy industries.
The story got me thinking about how incredible animal sanctuaries and the people that run them are. They devote thei...Read Full Post »

Starting my blog a few months ago has been one of the best decisions in my life and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. I find that having a blog has given me so many great opportunities so far and it’s only the beginning. I think it's a great opportunity to spread the vegan message in any way that you want to: from blogging about advice on how to go vegan, reviewing vegan makeup, or about the benefits of going vegan. If you’re interested in getting a job to do wit...Read Full Post »

In my 26 months as a vegan I NEVER thought I’d see the day that vegan cheese would come to Pizza Hut. But it really has!! At least it’s for a trial at the moment in 5 of their restaurants across the South-East until November 26th. YES!
The trial is thanks to the 100% vegan wholesaler, Coffee & Cheese (https://coffeeandcheese.co.uk/) who reached out to the ‘Hut and offered to supply them with their new Violife Grated for Pizza.Read Full Post »

We’re sorry to announce that, for multiple reasons, there will be no VGN Summer Camp in 2018. However, do not despair as TeenVGN will soon be going through a rebrand and we have some very exciting plans for the future!
For the last 3 years we have run extremely successful camps and have changed the lives of lots of young people, having sold out months in advance every time! So failure certainly isn’t the reason for this decision. Whilst we never expected to get p...Read Full Post »

I know some people would much rather support fully Vegan businesses, however, if you’re like me, you might only have the option of normal chain restaurants in your surrounding area. Personally, I will always eat at a fully Vegan place whenever I can, but I’m also always on the lookout for new Vegan options in popular chains. Here’s a quick guide to some non-Vegan restaurants and the options that they offer!

In case you missed us banging on about them on our social media, well-known US skate shoe company Etnies released a vegan shoe line! It was inspired by pro-skater and vegan, Ryan Lay who wanted a reliable and cruelty-free skate shoe that he could perform in.
So Etnies designed him one – The Jameson HT which is a vegan high-top made with all animal friendly materials including canvas and synthetic suede. The animal print version features a su...Read Full Post »

Something that I was never told prior to going Vegan was the social, and sometimes even mental struggles that you may go through. It’s as if you become hyper aware of the suffering that goes on in the world once you go Vegan, and it can be difficult to shut off! It’s then so easy to become this doom and gloom person that has nothing positive to say– which was definitely me for a while. I’ve only been Vegan since February 2016, but I feel as if I’ve gathered a suf...Read Full Post »

This week I was lucky enough to represent TeenVGN at the launch of the brand NEW Swedish meat substitute Oumph! by Food For Progress. It has taken Scandinavia by storm and the UK is next as it’s hit the shelves at UK Whole Foods stores with hopes of ending up in other shops/supermarkets across the country soon!
Tipped to be a rival to Quorn, their meaty products are all 1...Read Full Post »

I’m going to go through some popular Vegan cheese brands and share my opinion on them in hope that it may help someone out with which plant-based cheese to go for in the future!
Follow Your Heart
I don’t think this brand can make anything that tastes bad, Follow Your Heart is just perfect to me; none of their products are too strong, and yet they all have flavour. You can't really go wrong with this brand, it's definitely a s...Read Full Post »
