I receive complimentary digital copies of Vegan Life, which allows me to post reviews with screenshots included. My reflections on the magazine are entirely my own.
Another month and another jam-packed issue of Vegan Life Magazine. It was an especially good month for desserts, as in addition to the triple chocolate brownies on the cover, there was a stunning matcha mint cheesecake within. Isn't the green colour amazing?
I always love the mix of news pieces with food-focused pieces, and was interested to read that Hackney Council (North East London) suspended plans for a fox cull after protests from the RSPCA and other animal rights groups. It was a nice reminder that people can make a difference if they stand up for things they think important. I know foxes cause problems, but since moving to the UK I have come to love their silent beauty (they aren't common in Australia) and would hate to think of them being killed off.
Also in East London is the Just Fab double decker bus serving vegan and vegetarian Italian food. I hadn't heard of it before but it looks like a very fun place to eat a meal. They serve dishes like vegan lasagne and vegan tiramisu.
In the 'What's New' section I was interested to read of a new addition to the Fry's vegan range (found in Australia and the UK) - a quinoa country roast. Fry's products are authentically meat like so I will be interested to try the roast if I see it. I would also be interested to try the Eat Chic peanut butter cups...
I always love the 'Accidental Vegan' features, which tell of products that aren't vegan branded but are vegan nonetheless. I already knew about the M&S apple and sultana loaf, and can recommend it!
Last but not least, given my history of trying to veganise yoghurt, I was interested to read a feature on that topic. I have given up my own homemade yoghurt efforts but may one day try again. The feature advised using agar agar and probiotic powder for soya milk / soya yoghurt, and commercial coconut yoghurt to provide the cultures for coconut milk / coconut yoghurt.
Whilst not part of the magazine per se, I was also delighted to arrive home recently to a new Vegan Life bag. I love the definition of veganism they have featured.
Do you have a homemade non-dairy yoghurt success story?
