I've never really thought much about being a Vegan. I think its incredibly honourable for any person to be one though. I have been vegetarian on and off but I've found that every time I have been my lifestyle has lead to me to have health problems which has always brought me back to eating meat. This honestly makes me sad as a true lover of animals I go on and off being able to stomach eating them.
But this year with everyone going Veganary mad it has pulled up some really interesting articles and foods on social media which has made me think again whether I should give it another go.
Since having my third child, yet again I have been forced through breastfeeding to go completely dairy and egg free, essentially vegan but whilst eating meat. So its been a while since I've had a decent lump of real cheese or a pudding for that matter. So having denied myself for so long I began to look into some vegan food to make my life happier and I have to say that I'm bloody delighted!
With a Pizza issue that I found really difficult to eat, and I tried every kinda milk cheese that I could, thinking I could feed it to my child, I found that nothing would work, she was not happy at all. Until I found at some Vegan cheese on Ocardo. This has changed PIZZA AND MY LIFE!!! It tastes like a mild cheddar which I was surprised at but I'm really pleased. Not only that but I can also give my baby a decent piece of pizza considering that she really likes it, and now it has some cheese on it.
(I know I've added a photo of said cheese on this blog, this is not an ad, this is my own personal experience as Editor of this magazine and a person in this universe. This stuff is good. Thumbs up.)
But the thing that really kicked me in the heart was a video I found on Facebook one evening last week. This guy makes a bloody good point and its shaken my world. I'm going to be honest, I'm finding it really hard to eat any meat at the moment. I actually feel sick.
I'm not sure that I'll be turning full Vegan any time soon regardless, but the last year I have cut back on the amount of meat that I'm eating for the environment mainly if I'm honest. Its not always a meat free monday but theres more than day in the week where I don't eat it, and I'm actively always looking for new ways to ingest protein and iron rich foods. I will admit that this video has given me a big push to eat even less meat, and so far so good. This is weighing heavy on my mind. So much so that more veggie and vegan recipes will be filling the magazines from now on and if anyone really loves to cook simple vegetarian or vegan recipes and would love to be in our magazine please get in touch Id love to hear from you.
I hope you watch this video and it give you some vegan food for thought.
