Overcoming the difficulties for vegan families on holiday

A parent’s tale

Last week, my husband and I pushed our stress levels up a gear and decided to go away on holiday with the whole family. When I tell people about this they look at me sceptically and ask me what planet I’m from and they are right to do so. Particularly after so recently moving house…twice.

To a point, I would be in agreement. I used to look at holidays as a chance for a change in routine, to get away from the madding crowd and, well, actually rest. Now, whilst neither child is quite nappy free and the youngest has just found his feet enough to start walking, I have wised up to the fact that whether it’s moving day, I’m at work, or it’s the weekend, the routine is relentlessly similar. Going on holiday is not so much putting a halt to the clutter and intensity of daily care, but more a question of packing it all up in various suitcases and taking it along with you, just in case. It is, however, the change of scene and that can be refreshing. And, this year, staying in an all inclusive resort, I could get a break from cooking. Hurrah!

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the August Issue of Vegan Life. The vegan message is continuing to build momentum and our voices are becoming louder. In Vegan View this month we talk to Ed Winters about Surge’s Animal Rights March in London this September and his hopes for animal activism. We also have an inspirational interview with What the Health co-director Kip Andersen. Kip was fantastic to interview — very relaxed, honest and chatty. We spoke to him about his new film and what he has coming up in the future. If you haven’t seen What the Health yet, it is definitely worth putting some time aside to do so. Inside you will find features on pearl farming, the environmental value of electric vehicles and an overview of the vital, but undervalued, vitamin B12. We also have a focus on dog adoption this month. Shocking numbers of dogs are being abandoned at rehoming centres and we explore how adopting a companion can change their life, and yours, for the better. As we enter the last month of the summer, we need to embrace this wonderful season wholeheartedly. In this issue we are showing you how easy it is to make your own vegan ice cream and frozen yoghurt. Your neighbours will have serious food envy when they see you cooling off with our recipe for home-made vegan pistachio ice cream! We also have introduced a new feature this month. We love scrolling through your pictures of the magazine, recipes you have made from Vegan Life and your vegan adventures so we have decided to feature a few of our favourites. Why not try and get your picture published in the next issue?
