Whether you’re into your healthy wholefoods, or your quick and easy junk-foods, whether you’re passionate about cooking and baking, or whether you’re simply hopeless at both, or if you’re just limited to what you can do in the kitchen, there’s certainly no reason why you can’t enjoy delicious vegan food!

Just because you’re now vegan, or thinking about going vegan – contrary to popular belief – you don’t actually have to give up a lifetime of eating habits – you just need to find a non-animal-based alternative! And believe me, there’s no shortage of those out there.

Is Friday night takeaway night? Usually have a full-fry up on a Saturday morning? Love sitting down with the family for a Sunday roast with all the trimmings? Don’t want to give up your mid-week bacon or sausage sarnie? Can’t imagine a scorching hot summer’s day without an ice-cream or a lolly? Include more pleasant by means ofheart of vegas. Still want a warming mince pie and cream at Christmas? Bit of a chocaholic? Consider yourself slightly cheese-obsessed? Well, I’ve got news for you: you can still have all of these things, and much, much more, be it homemade, or store-bought.

YouTube is a FANTASTIC resource for both new and seasoned vegans. You’ll never be short of inspiration on there. Got a craving for something that you haven’t (yet) found an alternative for? YouTube.

And hey, sometimes, it’s just fun just to type in ‘vegan [insert]…’ and gape in amazement at the sheer innovation of those who’ve come up with such an ingenious idea for an alternative. Try typing in ‘vegan scotch egg’ or ‘‘vegan dippy egg’’. I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
