Veganism

Vegans eat all sorts of plant foods - fruit, vegetables, nuts, grains, seeds, fungi - and avoid foods made from dead or living animals - meat, eggs, milk, milk derivatives such as cheese and yogurt, or honey. Someone who has not encountered veganism before will ask, ‘Well, what DO you eat?’ The only non-animal foods a meat-eater tends to come across are the vegetables that accompany their meals. However, there is a wide variety of vegan foods with a diversity of flavours and textures. The important point to grasp is that going vegan is not just taking vegetarianism a step further. Going vegetarian tends to involve simply removing meat from the diet and abstaining from products that contain slaughterhouse products. Becoming a vegan, on the other hand, is a very different process where one adopts a whole new cuisine and which touches every area of life. If you want to find out more about veganism, visit The Vegan Society. They provide lots of information including the Animal Free Shopper, a comprehensive list of products sold in the UK that are vegan.

Vegan Pledge Month

November is World Vegan Month and every year people who are vegan-curious are invited to try the vegan diet for a month.

We have teamed up with Bluebird Wholefoods to encourage people in Nottingham to take part by pledging to follow a vegan diet during November. We can offer participants help, advice and support with ideas as to what to eat and buy, where to eat and how to eat healthily.
