November is World Vegan Month and this lovely individual is Patrick.
Patrick now lives out the whole of his life on a sanctuary. He is one of the lucky ones in the UK that lives past 6 months.
Veganism is a philosophy that seeks to reduce killing and suffering in the world. And it starts as simple as just eating something else.
There are so many amazing resources available and Veganuary is a great place to start. Veganuary is a great challenge to start 2021, why not start the year in a really positive way?
I hope everyone is keeping well.
Safe, Safe, Safe. And Bread.

I have recently started a Podcast which can be listened to for free!!
Episode 01 // An Introduction - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDvXz4sEOlU&t=9s
In this episode I delve into the meaning of Vegan 123 and explain how they all link together. Expolring all lots of evidence about The Animals, The Environment, Human Health and how these are all interconnected. Enjoy.
Episode 02 // Being Vegan for 9 years, Lock down, stem cell meat, vegetarians, lions and cavemen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U9nFQ3Mb_w&t=2194s
This episode came about because I realised that i'm coming up to 9 years of being Vegan. 9 Years, around 10,100 meals, around 3,285, hundreds of conversations about how plants have protein and that we are not lions. I give an overview of some of the many amazing documentaries out there and I also discuss in depth my view on stem cell meat, vegetarians and lions. Enjoy.
This is not a competition because vegans are not 100% perfect!!! But let's get some perspective, and keep in mind the original philosophy of Veganism, https://tinyurl.com/zfmfmuh
So I got told that as a vegan I kill more animals in the plants I eat, than an average meat eater. Sure, there is accidental, not intended animals that may get killed in the process.
But, this is actually less than the average meat eater.
Average UK Meat-Eater
Eats bits of land animals daily.
Those animals are likely fed on tonnes and tonnes of feed.
They eat fish. Which generally have by-catch.
Plus they eat plants with their meals too.
Buys clothing that is made from bits of animals.
Using toiletries and products that have been tested on animals or have animal ingredients.
Average UK Vegan.
My friend Rob is a busy and altruistic human. :). I met him at a Vegfest many years ago. He and others had just cycled 60 miles and finished at Bristol Vegfest, all to raise funds for Animal Aid. I then got to know him at other festivals where he was speaking and eventually I now volunteer at Exeter Vegan Market with him, again Rob is one member of the great altruistic group who arrange the regular events.
One of the many awesome groups he works with is The Vegan Approach, who are making veganism easy, accessible, fun, shows people practical steps to take, and offers support to them on their journeys. The latest video from this amazing group is really well made and a really helpful tool to help others make the transition.
The Vegan Approach site has a break down of each of the steps, and gives us a little bit more information for us to digest. Please check out the amazing video, awesome website and share them around, especially to those that will find it most helpful.

In life their is a phrase, it's not what you know, but who you know. And I am very lucky to know a few people. One of which is Vanessa, who with her friend and business partner Louise have created The Vegan Larder.
I came home one day and there, leaning against my door was a large parcel with their company logo on the side. There is something great about coming home to a delivery, and that is boosted more so when it has totally vegan products inside!
The unboxing can be seen in the video below. :).
I am gradually working my way through all of the goodies that arrived, and I keep getting inspired and updated from all of the awesome posts and articles the team keep posting!!
