“By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet.”
Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life by Thích Nhat Hanh
I don’t love New Year’s resolutions, especially those that involve the words “diet,” “detox,” or “cleanse.” But if the start of 2015 has you thinking about incorporating more meatless meals into your repertoire, then so much the better. This is a wonderful time of year to explore a plant-based diet, and see where small changes take you.
In my experience, it’s easiest and most enjoyable to explore veganism one recipe at a time. Fortunately, there’s a vegan recipe for everyone. Whether you love soups and stews, hearty casseroles, crispy kale salads, or a crunchy platter of seared tempeh, you won’t be disappointed in this round up of hearty — but healthy — favorites from The New Veganism.

I found these little beauts on sale just after Christmas and managed to find a pair big enough to fit my delicate size 8 (UK) flippers. They’re super comfy and a lot more waterproof than my last pair. They were £35 when I got them. Macbeth are one of the few vegan shoe companies to sell practical, stylish and affordable vegan shoes. Check them out here.
And yes, they’re 100% vegan.
I’ve been looking for a good pair of vegan boots to replace my old leather ones and have finally found them! These are from Vegetarian Shoes and are made from raw bucky material. They are super comfy, warm and cosy and are lined with a synthetic woollen-look fleece. Made in Portugal. £79 which is great value I reckon. Highly recommend!
