Plant Shift

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.

Are vegan chocolates available in 'mainstream' shops?

When I began following a plant-based diet, I got told that I'd only find vegan chocolates in heath food shops. I wasn't very impressed with that because I haven't got one very close to me, so it means making a special trip to get some treats! Anyway, everything turned out just fine!

The myth about vegan chocolate being scarce

There's a belief that those who don't consume animal products can't eat 'regular' chocolates. This is so untrue. :)

Vegan chocolate is hidden amongst the others

There are plenty of chocolates that tick the right boxes to be vegan BUT they aren't marketed or labelled as such, so you have to read the ingredients to check.

Here's a few that fit into this category. :)

Vegan chocolate can be bought with ease

So you can get vegan chocolates in most supermarkets and local shops too. Nowadays, things are easy for people to follow a vegan diet. It's not more costly. It doesn't mean going to multiple places to source different food items. It's fairly effortless! :)

What are your favourite chocolates that are available 'in the mainstream'?
