Nuts to you
I don’t celebrate Christmas but I do celebrate eating delicious, cruelty-free food.
On a recent trip to the Whole Foods Market location in London I spied with my vegan eye a vegan sign near the back wall of the lower ground level. On closer inspection, I discovered a display containing every single ingredient you would require to bake a mouthwatering nut roast. From the yeast extract to the egg replacer, everything needed to create a turkey-free main was on display. What’s more, Whole Food Markets were supplying a recipe card for vegan nut roast with instructions on how to use all of the fine ingredients on show.
I know it is easy to be cynical about Whole Foods exploiting one of their target demographics, but it is still a thrill to see this in a large supermarket in central London. So whether you want to celebrate Christmas without meat or (like me) just want to eat continually in non-believing style, Whole Foods Market on Kensington High Street can hook you up.

eeeee! You made a wordpress! This is so exciting! Best name ever 🙂
Yes. I am here, I am queer and I blog.
can you supply me with a recipe for turkish delight or a substitute for gelatine?
Hey Jess. An often-used substitute for gelatine is agar agar. It is made from seaweed and is used to thicken and set food. It doesn’t taste like seaweed so you don’t have to worry about your sweets tasting like the ocean. You can buy agar agar in Asian grocery stores or health food specialists.
Here is a vegan recipe for Turkish delight: http://www.vegan-food.net/recipe/277/Turkish-Delight/
I have found many of the Turkish delights in supermarkets are vegan by default.
Should I start up a companion blog called “Is this Vegan?” it can be condescending to Vegans everywhere.
I’d prefer it to be called “Are you sure it’s vegan?”
Ooh yes! Maybe I could be a community service and expose things that are supposedly vegan as being full of bacon.
or maybe you could do something else…
