You know vegan has become a monster food trend when you can pick up a dairy-free, meat-free, egg-free and in many cases gluten-free quick bite on pretty much any street corner. I'm not talking about high street fancy pants restaurants with incomprehensible menus. I mean the fun, fast, humble, finger-licking stuff from food trucks, pop-up cafes, market stalls, burger bars, and the like. Proper street food.

Through Bjorn Borg I learned you don't have to be a tennis player or a member of a tennis club to like tennis, even if it is just for one day a year. So it is with World Meat Free Day, you don't have to be a vegan or vegetarian to commit to this day once a year.

In a time when more and more people are concerned with the origins of what they wear, innovation is taking centre stage in the vegan fashion arena - to ensure that the new substitutes for leather are as kind to the planet as they can be, which often means working creatively with natural fibres instead of petroleum-based synthetics.

I Don't Eat Meat Because There's No Need To

Often when I tell people I don't eat meat, I immediately see battle lines being drawn. Some will go on the defensive, countering with rationalisations about their own behaviour (completely unprompted). Others will attempt to undermine me by finding inconsistencies in my behaviour. Perhaps they saw me step on a snail when I got off the train.

Nourishing Your Skin, From Within

When looking at our skin and how we take care of it, we must consider it as another organ of the body that needs nourishing and keeping healthy. Did you know that, 60% of what we put on our skin from lotions and potions is absorbed? That's right! Your skin is nourished by what you put on it as well as by what you eat - so, from the inside and out!

Why Salads Alone Won't Keep You Healthy

Let's get to the point: if you are eating three times a day and one of your meals consists of just leaves and the other just a grain, you are not giving your body what it needs. Your body will start communicating with you by displaying symptoms such as skin breakouts, tiredness, feeling faint or just plain hungry!

National Sandwich week runs from 14th to 20th May 2017 and according to the organisers, British consumers manage to munch their way through over 11.5 billion sandwiches each year. If you laid each one end to end, they would go around the world about 44 times.

Reducetarianism: Moving Away From All-Or-Nothing Approaches To Meat Consumption

Ioan Marc Jones

One of the main problems with veganism and vegetarianism is prominent vegans and vegetarians. Read opinion pieces about the merits of veganism, listen to lectures preaching the virtues of vegetarianism, and you will likely encounter a hefty dose of self-righteousness and an overwhelming cry for purity.

Dairy Free Chocolate Choices

Chocolate that is sweetened with refined sugar alcohols tends to have a rather metallic taste and an unnatural tasting twang. Consuming excessive amounts of refined sugar can also result in more trips to the bathroom - and no one really wants that!

Almost half of young people think they have a milk allergy. Yes, you can say it's a trend and yes, you can say it's largely for health reasons but what if the real reason why milk sales are plummeting was because people are realising it's gross?

Should I Go Vegan?

In fact, studies show that vegetarian (including vegan) populations tend to be less overweight and suffer less from diabetes, heart disease, some cancers and more - living longer as a result. Whether that is from avoiding animal products specifically, or having a generally healthier diet and lifestyle anyway, is difficult to be sure of, but good nutrition almost certainly plays a major role.

Basil is so important for good health, it is my 'go-to' comfort food, especially if I am feeling a little under the weather. Like carrots, basil is a rich source of beta-carotene which is needed for good vision, strong immunity and general good health. Because I can't be without it, I've come up with a few new and alternative ways to use basil and create something really special:

So I did some research and found myself sitting, highlighter in hand, staring at 55 pages of legislation with multiple browser windows in front of me, growing increasingly frustrated that what I was reading was, firstly, hugely open to individual's interpretation and, simultaneously, so full of inaccessible language that I needed explanatory notes to understand it.
