Comedian and passionate vegan Romesh Ranganathan, responded to the question ‘why do people hate vegans?’, in a video posed by BBC2. Ranganathan responded: “People hate vegans and the reason they hate vegans is because they think we’re humourless, they think we think we’re better than non-vegans, they think we’re always banging on about it, and all of those things are true.

“I am better than you if you’re not vegan. In terms of my ethical decisions, I am so much better than you. I’m better for the planet, I’m better for the animals. There’s nothing worse about me apart from I’m slightly irritating to have round for dinner.”

Ranganathan continues to explain that veganism is one of the two best lifestyle choices you make to help save the planet, yet some people are still failing to make the connection between climate change and the meat and dairy industries. He also states that vegans often make meat-eaters feel a ’sort of sense of guilt’, as they act as a ’reflective surface showing you your own inadequacies’. To conclude, he said: “It needs to get recognised – veganism is the future,” before likening vegans to Avenger superheroes, “they’re going to save the world. Why would you hate that?’

About PlantBased

July is undoubtedly the best month of the year; summer is in full swing, the days are longer, and, if you’re lucky, you may be able to enjoy a few drinks in the sunshine after work. It’s also the time of year where our diaries are jam-packed with BBQs – but, as vegans, this can sometimes be met with a side of anxiety if our social groups are predominantly meat eaters. On page 28, you will find everything you need to know if you’re planning to host your own BBQ – or should we say, BVQ – from handy tips, to mouth-watering recipes. But, if grilled food isn’t really your thing, you may want to experiment with raw food recipes. Following a diet that mainly consists of uncooked foods may seem slightly tricky to begin with, but we’ve served up a number of dishes that are impossible to resist – find them on page 46. They’re all easy-to-make and super healthy – perfect for those trying to eat well before their summer holiday. Speaking of which, have you booked yours yet? Whether you plan on staying close to home, or you fancy jetting off to a far away island, make sure you follow our Summer Survival Guide, on page 18. Here, we share all you need to know to ensure you have a care-free, vegan holiday. Before I go, I just want to recommend the Samphire and Spinach Linguine on page 94. It’s a pretty simple dish, but it will go down a treat with dinner party guests – especially if it’s served outside with an ice cold drink. Enjoy the issue!
