The cake is absolutely decadent but the great news (and the big difference!) is that the toffee won't break your teeth, the colours are from beetroot, rather than beetles and there is no white refined sugar in this recipe!

Yulin Dog Meat Festival: If We Want to Be Heard, We Also Need to Listen

At the same time, this is the argument we should be listening to ourselves. There is no justice in declaring ourselves voices for the voiceless whilst ignoring the plight and cries of the individuals we personally oppress. If we cannot listen to pleas we stop harming animals in our own country, we shouldn't be at all surprised if those in Yulin will not to listen to us.

A Tight Squeeze: A Fast Food Nation Searches for Meaning

Whilst at the theme park I desperately searched for some healthy food and the best my vegan arse could muster was a very sad looking jacket potato and a spoonful of beans. Everywhere you turned burgers, chicken, pizzas, chips were available.

Forget the Labels - It's Time to Eat Kind

Lliana Bird

I've decided to do my best to "eat kind". Like sexuality believe there is no black and white and that labels aren't really helpful any more. Fluidity is. So I'm dispensing with "vegan"/ "vegetarian"/ "pescetarian" etc. If I want to eat some cheese or yoghurt I will.

So-called 'extreme hunters' like giraffe killer Rebecca Francis regularly and deservedly receive public shaming, but few of us think twice about grinning at our lamb chops come dinner time.

Japan is the land of sushi and fish stock so at first vegans and vegetarians may be concerned. But there is no need to worry. Vegan food is known as Shojin Ryori - the food of the monks. With a little research, it's possible to find restaurants and ryokans that will feed you sumptuously from Tokyo to Kyoto and even in remote ryokans in Shikoku.

You have probably heard this joke. Question: 'How do you know if someone is a vegan? Answer: They will tell you in five seconds. And it is true from my experience once you go vegan you have an energy rising up inside of you wanting to scream; "I am vegan and it's really great!".

Lisa Roukin

It's hard to believe that you don't need flour, milk or refined sugar to create a lovely, light and kid-approved pancake. Although delightful, don't be expecting your run-of-the-mill carb-filled pancake. These have more of an eggy crepe-like texture, which is equally appealing.

There Once Was a Girl Who Was Obsessed With Banoffee Pie...

It's sugary, creamy, and decadent and because it's loaded with way too much sugary processed junk, it leaves you feeling a little bit ashamed, sad, and slumping after your sugar high of eating a whole pie.

There is so much talk nowadays about the need for things to be "healthy" gluten free this and sugar free that which lends a great hand to the South East Asian cuisines where the food is "healthy" already without meaning to be, without trying to be, without any sacrifice or disguises.

Halal Is Not the Problem and CCTV Is Not the Answer

Louise Mead | Posted 08.04.2015 | UK
Louise Mead

It's much easier to feel outraged about animal suffering when it's somebody else's fault and somebody else who needs to change their behaviour. Which is one of the reasons why this story has given renewed vigour to campaigns to remove religious exceptions to stunning and for mandatory CCTV in slaughterhouses.

I love tiramisu. Seriously...it's the perfect not too sweet, light and creamy treat - dessert does not have to be a guilt-ridden pleasure. This one is delicious and full of precious nutrients and it's wonderful as it's dairy free, with no added preservative or additives.

This triple layered tart (pie, slice, whatever you want to call it) is a great combination of tangy, herby and subtly sweet - that'll be the carrots for ya - and makes for an impressive little starter or lunch option.

So as each and every one of you will know, this month has been Veganuary - a 31 day long promise to the birds and bees and cows and pigs and sheep and prawns and former racehorses that for the duration of January 2015 I will comply with a more compassionate lifestyle that diminishes their need to suffer.

Hang on, veganism is not solely about the health benefits bestowed on the individual, is it now, dear commenter? What about the benefits enjoyed by the animals that don't get ingested, or X-ed out as collateral damage in some intensive food manufacturing process?

The cause is, unquestionably, a worthy one, and more than a hollow New Year's resolution this would be a real challenge - one that might produce benefits I couldn't foresee, both in terms of my wellbeing and vis-a-vis the expansion of my limited culinary repertoire.

Vegan W*nker

There are so many questions you'll be asked once you go vegan - most of them ridiculous. Apparently, going vegan means you're instantly more likely to end up on a desert island and be faced with having to kill and eat something to survive. And yes - I would kick to death a Shetland pony if it was threatening me and my family and I'd exhausted all other options of compromise.
