Where to Bond With Fel­low Ve­gan Food­ies

Liam and Janine Day founded the Face­book group, Ve­gan Food UK ( VFUK), a space for peo­ple to share ve­gan recipes, talk about their new fa­vorite ve­gan restau­rants, and bond over their shared pas­sion for ve­gan food. The cou­ple be­came ve­gan overnight af­ter watch­ing the doc­u­men­tary, “Earth­lings” but lacked the re­sources to cre­ate de­li­cious meals. They ended up just eat­ing veg­eta­bles, lentils and beans and knew they had to take it up a notch. They dis­cov­ered some recipes that they wanted to share with the ve­gan com­mu­nity and that’s when VFUK was born. They shared their recipes with who­ever wanted them and they came to re­al­ize that other peo­ple had recipes and cre­ations they also wanted to share. As the group grew in num­ber, its mem­bers be­gan post­ing about new ve­gan op­tions in UK restau­rants and a new com­mu­nity was born.

Ve­g­an­ism has changed dra­mat­i­cally in the last few years. It seems crazy, but just three years ago Ve­gan Food UK was cen­tered around meals mem­bers cooked at home and the odd ve­gan meal eaten out. Now, they have a new post every minute from peo­ple who have dis­cov­ered yet an­other new ve­gan prod­uct in the su­per­mar­ket, or a new ve­gan menu at a restau­rant. 2018 has been the most ex­cit­ing year for ve­gan food op­tions yet!

As the largest UK ve­gan Face­book group, it can be dif­fi­cult to stay on top of the mes­sage boards, thank­fully, they have in­cred­i­ble mem­bers and a team of 20 kind- hearted and knowl­edge­able ad­min­is­tra­tors who be­lieve that what they are do­ing is mak­ing a pos­i­tive im­pact in the UK, and they give up their valu­able free time for the cause.

For those who are just get­ting into ve­g­an­ism, the most im­por­tant things are to keep healthy, have fun and en­joy de­li­cious ve­gan foods. If you are used to hav­ing meat and two veg­eta­bles, then get your­self to the su­per­mar­ket and take ad­van­tage of all the amaz­ing ve­gan burg­ers, sausages, mince, chick’n nuggets, fish­less fin­gers, even steaks. There are so many prod­ucts out there and guar­an­teed you will find one or more that you like. As you progress on your ve­gan jour­ney, it will be ben­e­fi­cial to learn some sim­ple, whole­food plant- based recipes such as bean chilli, shep­herd­less pie, tofu curry, stews, soups, etc, as these are not only healthy op­tions but they’re de­li­cious as well. For ad­di­tional sup­port, they have set up a Ve­gan Food UK YouTube chan­nel that is burst­ing with easy ve­gan recipes us­ing low- cost ingredients.

Through­out the year, there are hun­dreds of ve­gan fes­ti­vals all over the UK and the Days try their best to at­tend as many as they can. They be­lieve it is im­por­tant to reach out to the lo­cal ve­gan com­mu­nity for sup­port and en­cour­age­ment. Their aim is to in­spire pos­i­tive change for the an­i­mals, the planet, fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als. Any­one who has an in­ter­est in ve­g­an­ism and ve­gan food is wel­come to join the Ve­gan Food UK com­mu­nity. Join their group on Face­book, fol­low them on In­sta­gram, or sub­scribe to their web­site and YouTube chan­nel.
