Why Vegan?

Number of animals killed in the world by the meat, dairy and egg industries, since you opened this webpage:











Based on 2007 statistics from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations' Global Livestock Production and Health Atlas.

This does not include the billions of fish and other aquatic animals killed annually.

DIY Tofu Press

I take no credit for having 'invented' this, but it's so simple to do that it would be daft not to share. The acrylic sheets cost £3.50 from eBay (including the postage) and the bolts and wingnuts about the same from a local shop. It took a couple of minutes to put together and will [...]

Noms, Not Bombs!

The people behind the classic vegan punk cookbook 'Soy, Not Oi!'* have got back together to produce a second part in honour of their friend and original SNO! contributor Joel, who sadly died earlier this year.

They're looking for contributions to the new book - anecdotes about the original SNO!, stories about Joel, special features on [...]

Seitanic Mass

I've read so much over the years about this mysterious wonderfood called seitan, but never been able to find the basic ingredient (wheat gluten powder) in the UK, at least not within a reasonable price range, to have a go at making it myself. There's a long-winded way to knock some up with ordinary flour, [...]

Culinary Anarchy!

The Conscious Kitchen
I found this blog via the rather excellent VegBlogs (another new blogroll addition that collects a fine set of vegan bloggers together in one handy place). It's a cracking piece of work too, with Emilie (the author) showing just how exciting and flavoursome vegan food can, and should, be. Her blog is packed [...]

Green Your Eats!

Thursday 1st November is World Vegan Day, a chance for vegans globally to show just how positive veganism is. And not just for the animals we don't kill, but also for our own wellbeing and for the health of the planet. In fact, this year the focus will be on the ecological catastrophe that is [...]

Food For Thought

There was a time when my diet could've been classed as traditionally British. Main meals were built around the meat 'n' two veg approach, except for Fridays and holidays when we would have fish 'n' chips. Milk was drunk by the pint (and from proper glass bottles too!) and eggs found their way onto nearly [...]

What A Gas!

If you've been keeping an eye on the media in recent times, you'll have probably noticed yet another round of stories resulting from the latest UN report about global warming and impending ecological catastrophe. Human activity is put in the frame, and quite rightly so. There is now no question that what we do and [...]
