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.

The stash that your vegan friends will love!

Unexpected visits

Do you ever feel ill-equipped when your vegan friends or family come over because you haven't had time to pop into a 'special' shop to buy vegan treats and snacks? Perhaps, you've felt as if you've not had enough time to find out what's vegan and what's not. Maybe you haven't fancied making an extra effort to find out what they can eat, and then try and find it, so you couldn't offer anything when they came over. If any of these ring true, this article will give you everything you need, without involving the need to visit any 'special' shops! 

You can buy vegan snacks from supermarkets or even the local newsagent  

You don't have to go to a 'special' shop, nor do you need to do lots of research and it doesn't need to involve extra effort either! 

The images of sweet and savoury snacks shown below can be purchased in a local newsagent near you, in any of the smaller supermarket stores and of course, in the bigger ones too! Nice and easy! However, these photos don't show ALL of the vegan options that are easily available. Check out the list from Unilever below. 

So is it hard to host vegan friends and family?

In this post I've focused on catering for vegans who pop in for a quick visit, which may involve tea, coffee, cold drinks and some snacks. If you wanted to make a little extra effort, you could get some non-dairy milk, so they can have white tea or coffee. Here's a few that you can buy in your local supermarket, soya milk, almond milk, hazelnut milk and coconut milk. If you ever decide that you want to cook a vegan meal, these delicious recipes may help. 

Today, I marvel at the vegan foods in the supermarket, at the cruelty-free clothing choices in stores, and at the fantastic alternatives to dissection in schools, the modern ways to test medicines without killing rabbits and beagles, the many forms of entertainment involving purely human performers.
