It’s now easier to be a vegetarian or vegan, as this article points out. Ami provides a fairly comprehensive list of the vegetarian fare you are likely to find at some supermarkets. And some reasons to consider moving away from a meat-based diet. Click on the link below to read it in full.
Lifelong vegan Ami Tadaa is continuing her search around the North East for yummy veggie and vegan food.
But today, she turns her attention to the best places to go and stock up your larder cupboard on veggie essentials.
“Being vegetarian or vegan is so simple when you are surrounded by such amazing meat/dairy alternatives.
Supermarkets are becoming more and more aware that they need to provide for veggies and vegans and continue to add to their range of products.
These products are affordable, yummy and so easy to find, so there’s no excuse for not trying the veggie challenge for the rest of National Vegetarian Week.
Ooh, and if you were not convinced already… I have a few reasons that may make you consider either trying veggie this week, becoming veggie or including more veggie items in your diet.
1. It’s better for animals. Around two million land animals are slaughtered every day in the UK alone, just so people can eat their flesh.
2. It’s more sustainable. Growing grains and pulses to feed to animals is much less efficient than eating them ourselves. The livestock industry uses huge amounts of land, water and fossil fuels, while producing 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and all sorts of other pollution.
3. It’s a healthy option. A balanced vegetarian diet is one of the healthiest diets around, and trust me, it’s really lovely to eat too!”
But back to the supermarkets.
