Blackpool win

I am heading up North this weekend for a bit of fun and sun at the Northern Vegan Festival being held in Blackpool. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I will be hosting a speed meeting event designed to let compassionate people meet compassionate people in a fun atmosphere. Also…. PRIZES!

The session will run from 5pm and is not only a unique way to touch base with other vegans, it is also a chance to win some fabulous cruelty-free prizes.

Unbelievable news

MAJOR UPDATE

People have been emailing me like crazy today saying they have been told by Tesco that this product has milk proteins as an ingredient even though it doesn’t say so on the label.

I have been on the phone with Tesco for a long time just now only to be assured by the customer service person there is NO milk protein as an added ingredient.

Of course I explained the mixed messages we are getting and my service person has told me they will look into it in fine detail and get back to me ASAP, but that might not be until Monday. In the meantime I suggest anyone who doesn’t want to eat a product that purposively contains dairy milk stays away from this item.

I’ll report back as soon as I can.


 

I don’t know what to say. I am overwhelmed by this vegan news out of London. Hold on to your jaunty hats, kids.

Last night I received a text message from Angela of The Third Estate with a very special grainy photo attached.

There are no words. Read more ›

More Berlin madness

Joe and Jess in Berlin just sent me the craziest set of photos featuring all the awesome vegan goodies they stumbled upon this week. I don’t think they are regretting their move from London to Berlin in the slightest.

Before I share the photos, I wanna post the brief message that accompanied the email.

Here are some photos for you:

Best in London

Here we go. I know you love my grand sweeping declarations.

The Essential Vegan pop up cafe at 297 Portobello Road in West London is currently serving the best vegan food in London. No doubt about it being number one in my FGV opinion.

I ate there today and was so moved by the delicious cuisine, I almost cried. I was overwhelmed with joy. London has been playing catch up with other international cities when it comes to outstanding plant-based eating and I feel we have come of age.

Check out the heavenly food from earlier today. Read more ›

Vegan fangs

Super short post to tell you about my latest love affair.

These sweets from Sainsbury’s taste obscenely-good, are labelled ‘vegan’ on the packet and are certainly no good for me. What’s not to love?! Read more ›
