John Lewis want to be Part of your Vegan Christmas this Year
When I first went Vegetarian I didn’t want to cause any stress for my family at Christmas time, so I made a deal with my mum: If we have a Veggie Christmas, I’ll cook the whole thing and you can put your feet up. Continue reading “5 Top Tips For The Best Vegetarian Christmas Dinner”
Those of you who’ve been with me since the start of my Veggie LAD journey will know I’m a big fan of independent, pop-up, hipster-tastic restaurants and food outlets. But, the fact is, we can’t always feast on a mac ‘n’ cheese truffle burger served from a cafe disguised as a living room in East London. Chain restaurants have become part of our foodie identity in Britain and some of them are doing some amazing work for vegetarians. All the places in my top 10 do brilliant veggie options at affordable prices, so go there with confidence and enjoy! I decided to only feature restaurants that have more than 3 sites and have outlets outside London. This put some great places out of the running: Chipotle, Hummus Bros, Mildred’s… If you’re a London veggie, these are also great!
Number 1 might shock you… I’ve been asked loads recently to do a top tips post from people who want to give vegetarianism a try. Here are my Top 5.
I am so excited to be publishing my very first guest post! It comes from West End actor and converted Veggie LAD, Stewart Clarke. He’s been on a mission to go plant-powered. As a man who has, thus far, made a living from playing parts which involve him whipping out his torso, you can trust that Stewart is proof that going veggie/vegan doesn’t compromise performance in the gym. Here, he sets up a show-down of epic proportions. Who will win? Beef or Black Beans?
I made it! Yes I battled through 31 long days of alcohol-freeness and arrived the other side (mostly) unscathed. It was hard at times, particularly over Easter Weekend, but I’m very proud of myself for abstaining from my beloved beers for 1 whole month. I didn’t do it alone, I had the support of my girlfriend (who was doing it too) and some awesome drinks companies who sent me their alcohol-free offerings to get me through.

Welcome to my first Veggie LAD adventure blog! Here I’ll be documenting all the mischief I get up to on my quest to vegify the world. In this first instalment I attend my first blogging event with Glow Goddess and part-time Veggie LASS Madeleine Shaw!
