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.

Eating out: Attico Art Centre

Update April 2017: Attico Art Centre has closed permanently.

A gorgeous place that's hidden away 

A friend took me to the Attico Centre recently. It's in Watford and is absolutely gorgeous! 

The layout ensures that customers can walk around and look at the paintings and sculptures that are for sale. It also means that there aren't lots of tables squashed together and it's actually really peaceful. 

Vegan options at the Attico Art Centre

The staff who work in the cafe understand what vegans will and won't eat and they have a few options for us too! I remember that they had a vegan wrap and a loaded salad when I was there. They also have an alternative to dairy milk, so you can have a hot drink if you want one. 

Are vegan options lacking for those who want to eat out? 

Here's some articles about just that.
I'd love to know your thoughts on whether vegan options lack or not. Also, do get in touch if you've been to any of the places I've reviewed below, or want to share your experience of vegan options elsewhere.

"In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people."
- Ruth Harrison (1920-2000)
