Vegan Life magazine | Issue Three

January 6, 2015

Issue three of Vegan Life magazine is out now! As per usual, this issue has loads of great articles in. They’re always my favourite part of the magazine – that, and the recipes. Those photos always make me so hungry!

I think a lot of the magazine is really informative for non-vegans and those considering going vegan. You find out about so many great companies and products, you can see how easy it is to be vegan and it makes you think about your own choices when it comes to food, clothing and lifestyle.

 

I don’t wear anything from an animal – no leather, suede, wool or silk (or any other animal by-product I might have missed!). Yes it can make certain shopping trips difficult (don’t get me started on how hard it is to find a winter coat, or to walk away from beautiful underwear!) but for me, it’s these tiny sacrifices that make the difference. They all make a statement, they all change an animal’s life, they all mean that as far as I can personally go, I don’t rely on animals for anything. This issue has a great feature on wool and why it is a cruel industry. A lot of people ask me why I don’t wear wool – it gets shorn off anyway, so why not wear it? Well, it’s just not as simple as that. The animal industry is a cruel one, and no area of it is left untouched. Do some research and you’ll see that – or read this article, which has everything you’ll need to know. I don’t often talk about my personal beliefs on my blog, but I think it’s something that I think everyone should research before making a decision. When I was vegetarian I did some research into why people were vegan and realised that these reasons were the same as why I went veggie in the first place. I know it’s a lifestyle that’s not for everyone, but just make sure you understand the choices that you’re making and how they are affecting others and the world around you. Rant over ;)

Steamed buns are something that I keep meaning to get around to trying – ever since I first tried them at Terre a Terre. They were so delicious, and this recipe will definitely help me on my way to completing one of my new years resolutions! (That is, to cook more often and to use my cookery books more.)

    It’s a great issue, isn’t it! I still struggle with implementing my personal beliefs into how I go about my daily life. I wrote about my cheese struggles on my blog post about issue 3. And before christmas I went shopping to find some winter boots and it was virtually impossible to find some decent animal friendly ones. I don’t understand how people can not be vegan once you start looking into the realities of the animal industry. However, I understand it’s a difficult path to follow, and one that I defo struggle with at times. OK, enough sleep-deprived rambling from me.
