Courses for curious foodies

The College of Naturopathic Medicine [CNM] is the UK’s largest training provider in natural health therapies. As well as career training courses, they also offer a wide range of short courses to inspire healthier living. Many of these are food related, as Olivier Sanchez, nutritionist and lecturer on CNM’s Natural Chef course explains: “The food choices we make every day impact our body and mind. With more and more highly processed foods in our diets, our bodies do not receive the nutrients they need to sustain good health. Additionally, how foods are prepared and cooked affects their nutritional value.” CNM short courses are available in nutrition, cooking, herbs, homeopathy, food photography, weight loss, kinesiology, skincare and more. The short courses are available at CNM London, but CNM has 10 colleges across the UK and Ireland where you can train for a successful and rewarding career as a natural health practitioner, helping yourself and others to better health. Depending on location, you can study part time to become a nutritionist, herbalist, acupuncturist, naturopath, homeopath or a CNM Natural Chef. To find out more visit naturopathy-uk.com.

Quorn products officially registered as vegan

Meat-alternative producer Quorn, has registered its entire vegan range with the Vegan Trademark, calling the logo the ‘cherry on top, of a very successful launch. Some of the products have been available throughout the UK since October 2016 but the new registration gives extra credibility and assurance to consumers avoiding animal ingredients. George Gill, chief executive at The Vegan Society, said: “We are delighted to welcome Quorn to join over 800 other companies that register their products with us. Quorn’s newly-registered vegan products are already being enjoyed by vegans in the UK and abroad, and by clearly labelling them the company makes sure it is widely known that its products are suitable for everyone. Providing vegan options makes clear commercial sense for businesses, which can open up their market to a fast growing number of vegans worldwide.” Alex Glen, head of brand marketing at Quorn, added: “We are really pleased to have registered our Quorn vegan products with The Vegan Society. We have been working very hard over a number of years to develop vegan products that delivered the fantastic taste and texture that Quorn is known for, to vegan consumers, and the Vegan Trademark is the cherry on top. The products that we have launched so far are performing well, and we are continuing to develop new vegan products that we can launch into market, so watch this space!”

About Vegan Life

Welcome to June’s issue of Vegan Life magazine. I’m really excited about this one – as you’ll have seen, we have a very special cover star this issue. Evanna Lynch is known for her acting (she’s currently treading the boards in London’s West End) and previously played the role of Luna in the Harry Potter franchise. I was lucky enough to meet Evanna herself at Vegan Life Live in January, and it was fantastic to talk to her about some of her upcoming projects as well as her views on veganism. The brilliant profile piece inside was written by another wonderful vegan I have been lucky enough to meet on a number of occasions (and who has been featured herself on these pages in the past), Deni Kirkova. The original images were taken by Toby Shaw – all at Hugletts Wood Farm Animal Sanctuary. It’s finally summer, which means we can take our dining from ‘al desk-o’ (groan) to al fresco. With this in mind, we have put together a recipe-packed feature to help you enjoy your best vegan barbeque season yet. What role does a plant-based diet play in conservation? We all know how much animal agriculture contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, but what other impacts does it have? Katie Chabriere - a trustee for the UK-based charity Neotropical Primate Conservation – talks about her experience of working on conservation as a vegan. Another really inspiring herbivore in this issue is Jo-Anne McArthur. This amazing photographer has documented hundreds of scenes showing the ways we exploit animals. Her work is incredible, and it was a privilege to chat with her about being an artist. And finally – Dixe Wills is probably one of the most interesting writers I have ever spoken to. As author of a number of popular titles including The Z-Z of Great Britain, Places to Hide in England, Scotland and Wales, New World Order, and The Armchair Naturalist, his latest offering Tiny Campsites has recently been published in its third edition. Have a great month.
