Recently I was contacted by Vegan Life magazine, who asked if I would like join in with their blogger community. I didn't need to be asked twice if I wanted to read a new UK based vegan magazine!
I was surprised by how big and pretty and shiny the magazine is. There's so much to read and it's really modern and interesting. I always expect vegan magazines to be like the photocopied pamphlets handed out at the animal rights rallies I used to go to as a teenager, but judging from Vegan Life magazine things have moved on a loooong way since then! Each issue has over 100 pages of vegan goodness, I squee-d when I read it!
Issue 3 is out soon, but I wanted to share some of my favourite bits from issues 1 and 2
Each issue starts with 'Vegan News', where you can find out all the latest vegan developments (I'm most interested in vegan Quorn products, and the campaign to get IKEA to sell vegan meatballs!).
'How Veganism Changed my Life' seems to be another regular feature, this one is about a vegan personal trainer.
I'd discovered by myself that the Las Iguanas chain of restaurants do a pretty killer vegan menu, so it's nice to read more in depth about the company.
I love a bit of gardening, so I found this article about veganic farming really interesting.
'Vegan Life in...' seems to be another regular feature. I particularly wanted to read this Birmingham version as I live only a 45 minute train journey away.
Mmmmmmmm, vegan cupcakes!
This article about raising vegan children was thought provoking.
Vegan Christmas recipes, they all look yummy!
I really think no matter what your interests, so long as they had a vegan-ish slant, you would find something you want to read in this magazine. There are articles on animals, pets, beauty, recipes, ethical issues, vegan chefs and businesses, travel, foraging, art and loads more.
Have you tried Vegan Life Magazine? I'd love to know what you think? Look out for my review of issue 3 soon!
