Supplements are a great way to complement any diet with vital vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. In this post, I’ll explore some of the most popular vegan supplements available in the UK. From vitamin B12 capsules to herbal blends of mushrooms and seaweed extracts – there is something for everyone on this list. Learn about each product’s key features and health benefits to determine which substitutes fits your lifestyle best.
I never knew fresh apricots were extinct. I wanted to make the apricot appetiser mocktail from The Virgin Cocktail Garden as it looked simple, with just a few ingredients easily found in the shops. Or so I thought. Could I find fresh apricots? Could I bollocks. I looked online at Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda and Morrisons but I could only find dried and I’d been sure fresh apricots were as easy to find as apples. Google suggested I use peaches or nectarines in place of apricots and so, because I dislike the fuzziness of peaches, I bought nectarines instead. (I have since investigated and found out apricots are in season in the UK from May to September so I’m going to look for them then, even if I don’t want any. It’s become a matter of principle.)
Navigating food as a vegan or vegetarian can be tough enough, but what about the things you drink? It might be easy to stick to vegan drinks if you want to. After all, water is vegan and you don’t need to drink anything else, most of the time. However, just because you don’t need to have other drinks, it doesn’t mean you don’t want them. Sometimes you want a tasty drink, whether it’s hot or cold. And, just like food, drinks can often have surprising ingredients that turn out to be neither vegan or vegetarian. If you want to stick to vegan drinks, you have to be careful.
Are you excited about King Charles III’s upcoming Coronation? Maybe you are and maybe you’re not but, either way, spring is here and summer’s coming, which is the perfect time to start getting your salad game on.
What better way to celebrate World Vegan Month than by enjoying your favourite vegan food at a discount by using a tastecard?
Over on my fitness blog (which is even more neglected than this one, if that was possible), I recounted how, when I first began running as a hobby and as a way to use up the energy I had after stopping smoking, I foolishly didn’t buy a sports bra.
I first reviewed Violife vegan cheese on this blog almost ten years ago. How much has changed since then? Well, Violife have certainly added to their range, that’s for sure!
Bad Brownie vegan brownie bites are brownies sent through the post which, let’s face it, on a scale of 1-10 of nice things to get in the post must rank at about 11.
Yumbles contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I’d like to try some of the range of vegan products they sell on their website. Well, of course I did but I wasn’t expecting such a huge variety to choose from.
I’m addicted to hot chocolate. Utterly, totally, have-to-get-my-fix-of-it-at-least-twice-a-day addicted. At home, I make vegan hot chocolate using a dairy-free drinking chocolate powder such as Cadbury’s or whatever’s cheapest in the supermarket (most non-instant hot chocolate is vegan, unlike the instant hot chocolate such as Options, which contains milk), and plant milk such as almond, soya or coconut. When I’m out, if they have non-dairy milk – yay! If not, I must confess I do drink hot chocolate with moo juice if that’s all they have (I know, I should be stronger, or go somewhere else – especially as there are plenty of places near me that do vegan hot chocolate, and even a place that serves raw cacao hot chocolate).
