New Zealand is known for its Middle Earth-inspiring beauty, Maori culture and passion for rugby more than for its food. Yet the endless swaths of farmland and 8,700 miles of coastline mean that meat and seafood feature strongly, and popular national dishes include roast lamb, oysters, and fish and chips.

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:

While the cuisine generally involves little meat except pork, a large part of the basic diet is fish, mussels, crabs and lobster. Not knowing much else about Fijian food, I was unsure what vegetarian dishes would be easily available and what the quality of them would be

If I could persuade you to do one single thing it would be to at least eat considerately. By all means eat meat if you so wish, but please for the sake of the billions of animals that have died for your burgers and sausages, order or make more realistic portion sizes.

what if you don't eat meat? What if you're allergic to shellfish? What if you've committed to going sugar free for February? There's nothing romantic about eating something you don't like, or indeed, something that makes you poorly with grim side effects!

Look I get it. You might not like the idea of veganism much. I honestly used to feel the same way but once you start to looking at the evidence that is supporting a societal shift towards veganism it is hard to look away.

The Case For Flexitarianism - Why Cutting Down On Meat Makes Sense

I don't like the word flexitarian. It sounds pretentious and smug; I wouldn't blame anyone for rolling their eyes when they hear it. But for the purposes of description, that's what I have recently become, eating mostly vegetarian or vegan meals with meat, fish and dairy products as occasional treats.

Am I Vegan?

Let's be clear here, without malice or personal agenda. As trendy as it's becoming, veganism is not an exclusive club with membership rights. It is not a cult or a diet. It is a very clearly defined social justice movement that puts animal rights at its core.

Yeah, possibly. But they are far more capable of giving us shit than any farm animal would left to its own devices. Any of you who have ever been stung by nettles or fallen out of an apple tree can attest to that. I say eat those f*ckers.

Aside from the staples (every Cuban citizen receives a regular supply of rice, sugar, coffee, meat, eggs and bread), food supplies are often limited and can run out without warning. Partly due to this, many meals are based around meat or fish with rice and beans as filler.

Becoming vegan is the single most effective step one can take to contribute to the fight against runaway climate change. As someone who considers themselves an environmentalist, becoming vegan is no longer a personal lifestyle choice, it's an ecological necessity.

Rewind back to 2013 or any year before and the thought of a nut roast as the centrepiece of my Christmas meal bordered on blasphemy. I would give it similar short thrift as other usurpers like quorn, tofu and seitan (or Satan as I assumed it was spelt).

On hearing the revelation I reacted in the usual ways. I searched for the inevitable petition, signed it and shared it. I tweeted to the self-validating echo chamber that is my twitter following. Naturally, I attacked the trolls who were insensitively (if slightly amusingly) telling distraught vegetarians "they shouldn't be eating £5 notes anyway".

The preacher in the town square exists in all areas of life. You can find them in religion, in atheism, in politics, sport or anywhere else where passions run high. Often you'll find them in animal rights circles. Many a meat-eater has told me of a time they were verbally attacked or belittled by a vegetarian or vegan.
