Go Vegan

Resources for going vegan

Going vegan can seem quite daunting to begin with, you may feel like there are just too many foods you have to give up, which just isn't so! You will soon discover all kinds of vegan treats and recipes and realise that a vegan version can be made of most foods.

Today, compared with say 10 years ago, there are so many more vegan products readily available in the supermarket that it's even easier. There are vegan versions to buy of sausages and burgers, cheese, milk, ice cream, chocolate and yoghurt, just to name a few.

To help you change to a vegan lifestyle we have compiled a list of resources and guides. For any suggestions of content you would like to see then please contact us.

For resources specifically on raising children vegan - the Vegan Society in the UK has a good section vegan diet for children and in pregnancy.
