About Vegan Life

Welcome to our September issue! It’s hard to believe autumn is just round the corner – it’s still feeling pretty balmy out, which is great for making the most of being outdoors. This issue we’ve rounded up some delicious lunch recipes to take outside, where to pick up the best on-the-go vegan food and how to make the most of your lunch hour – crucial while the weather is still so favourable. We have so many inspiring vegan contributors this month. The Scary Dairy expose by Viva!, is a tough but essential read. Juliet Gellatley and her brave team work tirelessly to help share the truth about the brutal industry and campaign for change. Our artist of the month is Kate Louise Powell, an activist who is spreading the vegan message and provoking positive change through her powerful pieces of art. Be sure to catch our interview with the Ven. Alma Shri Sadhu Dharmavira – a vegan Buddhist monk who explains the importance of living compassionately and gives us an insight into his extraordinary life. Enjoy the issue!
