I had the good fortune of meeting Poppy Lettice when I attended a recent VegFest. Poppy is bubbly, passionate, generous and eager to please her vegan (and non-vegan) customers.

I knew you'd want to read about the range of goodies she makes and provides, so here's an article that will tell you that and more!Read More

Is there anything hugely difficult about organising an event if the venue provides catering?
I used to do some work for a local branch of the National Union of Teachers and one of the roles included organising training events. We provided a meal during training days and snacks for other events, such as, meetings after school.
To ensure that everyone was catered for, and so we were aware of allergies, I'd ask those who registered, if they had any dietary requirements. Unfortunately, sometimes I'd wished I hadn't!Read More

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.
