Star letter 1

Dear Vegan Life,

I became a vegetarian at 10 years old, when I realised that what was on my plate had been a living creature with blood running through its veins and a heartbeat. I never met another vegetarian until I was 21. Having read an article about how cows’ hormones enter your body if you drink milk or ate dairy, I turned vegan. I was told at 16 by a doctor that I would never have children, because of my diet. My first son was born when I was 23 — he weighed 10lb 8oz is now 43 years old is 6”4 and fit and healthy. My second child was born when I was 25, my third at 41 and my baby at 43. I don’t eat foods that look or taste of meat, as my brain just will not accept it. I am now 66 years old, still work full time and am still active. I always knew that eventually humans would understand that animals have feelings too. It’s so good to see the number of people who are now choosing a vegan lifestyle and I really hope more and more people join us.

About Vegan Life

Time and time again we ask what the best way to advocate is, and the answer most people here at Vegan Life HQ give is food. It’s the time of year when we tend to spend more time at home, and cooking over a hot stove or spending an afternoon baking seems much more appealing and less of a chore than it did in summer. So now is the ideal time to get in the kitchen and start trying out some new and delicious recipes. If you think you could never bake a loaf of bread, now is the time to try. If you worry that your curry lacks flavour or your homemade brunch consists of toast and marmite, get experimenting. We’ve rounded up some brilliant dishes to cater for all palates, and I implore you to give them a whirl and then, crucially, share them. Be that person at work sending a company-wide email declaring there are vegan cakes in the tea room (try the Lamingtons on p69 — they are divine). Invite your friends over for an Ethiopian feast they’ll never forget (head to p74 to see how) and tempt your family to dinner with an aubergine pilaf cake (see p62). And whilst you have your nearest and dearest gathered around, with full stomachs and, hopefully, open minds, start a conversation about veganism. You never know what seeds you might plant. It’s all excellent prep for the upcoming December festivities. I hope you enjoy the supplement with this issue, which has everything you need to veganise your Christmas. Have a great month, Phillipa Smith
