Plant Shift

love ♥ living ♥ vegan

Following a plant-based or vegan lifestyle, is about food, drink, clothes, shoes, body treatments, hair products and more. 

It's a conscious decision to think, walk and possibly, talk a better lifestyle. 

I support individuals who are thinking about making the shift, as well as, those who have already begun their plant-based journey.

Vegan eats in the West Coast of America

Jilna has been vegan for three years. She lives in London, and has always found it easy to grab a bite to eat or dine out. However, she hasn't always had the same experience when travelling abroad.

That changed in 2015! She holidayed in the West coast of America, and realised, that what she had heard about vegan options was no exaggeration! They were great! She was thoroughly impressed!

Vegan eats in Barcelona

Eating vegan while you're travelling is so hard! 

I've heard people say that they don't follow a vegan diet when they're travelling because it's too hard. I've also been asked if I find it impossible to eat vegan when I'm on holiday. 

I'm not sure why there's an assumption that eating vegan away from 'home' would be difficult, but you wouldn't be alone if you thought the same!

Why Travel is Better When You're Vegan

Wendy Werneth is a keen traveller and she's vegan! You'd think she'd change her lifestyle choice when she's travelling to ensure that her holidays are better, less restrcited and more indulgent, but guess what? She continues living vegan while she's away! On the contrary to what many people will assume; she finds it a richer, happier experience! 
I absolutely love Wendy's attitude and the energy that comes through this article. 
I would love to hear your thoughts after you have read the article. Do you think you would be up for staying vegan whilst on holiday?

Surprise adventure

I was lucky enough for Suraj to book a surprise Urban Adventure for us in June 2014. He booked it with Veganbnb Travel.

To tour guide or not to tour guide!

We'd only been on one holiday where we had a tour guide and the experience was a mixed bag. It ranged from generous, amazing and adventurous to neglectful and greedy. I'd forgotten about that until we discussed it on the trip and I was thankful for the memory lapse! I wouldn't have wanted some of these memories to cloud my perception of how this trip would be. Why? Because it was great! :)

How I define a vegan diet

Why is it helpful to have a definition of what veganism?

I wrote this definition to create a tool to communicate what you are willing to consume, so that it's easier on you and others.

Confusion about the many terms regarding what people eat

There are loads of different terms for people to remember.

- Those who eat fish but no other meat of any sort are Pescetarians.
- If you eat chicken and no other meat, you're a Pollo vegetarian.
- If someone says they are vegan but they eat meat, fish, honey, eggs etc. i.e. the only thing they have excluded from their diet is dairy; they are not vegan. They fall under the dairy-free category.

The definition of a vegan diet

A vegan diet includes any item that has not come from a living being e.g. an animal or insect. Examples of excluded foods are honey, eggs, fish, meat and products using the milk from an animal e.g. cream, milk, cheese, yogurt, butter etc. Vegan foods include vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, pulses and grains. Alternatives to dairy products can be made from oats, rice, soya or nuts.

A tool to help illustrate what vegans eat

A friend of mine made a chart to show the differences between what a vegan would eat and what a 'pure' vegetarian would eat. I hope you find it helpful.
