It’s gradually becoming easier to eat vegan on-board your chosen airline. US flight company Hawaiian Airlines, is the most recent to join the growing number of airlines that offer vegan in-flight meals. The new options have been developed by award-winning chef Lee Anne Wong, and will be available in the main cabin of all international flights, except those to and from Tahiti and American Samoa. Passengers can enjoy island-inspired options such as teriyaki tofu, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, and baby bok choy with sticky rice. All meals come clearly labelled, with a sticker denoting its ‘vegan’ status. The company states that vegan meals must be pre-ordered 48 hours before boarding, via their website.

Throughout the US, the demand for plant-based food is rising — in a recent study of the population, it was reported that 60 per cent of all Americans wish to eat less meat. Around the world, the story is similar. Hawaiian Airlines join Air New Zealand and Australian budget airline Jetstar, who have both launched in-flight vegan meal-options. Airports and train companies are also becoming better for vegans. At New York airport JFK, 90 per cent of restaurants now serve plant-based options. Likewise, North American train company Amtrak, and UK-based companies Virgin Trains and CrossCountry Trains, have just started offering great vegan foods.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our December issue. Christmas is a time of year that is steeped in tradition, and whilst there is comfort and enjoyment in the familiar ceremonies, I think it’s time for some things to change. For vegans, Christmas can be a source of upset and stress, as we spend time with friends and families who don’t share our beliefs. In the lead up to Christmas around 10 million birds are killed — that’s almost equivalent to the population of Portugal. So to keep the peace, and cruelty off our plates, we’ve put together some timeless festive recipes that will satisfy everyone. There won’t be any complaints or grumbles about missing out, especially not with our vegan cheeseboard ideas. Research has shown that, in the UK alone, over £5 billion will be wasted on unwanted Christmas presents. It’s a shocking statistic and I, for one, am vowing to only buy considerate items this year, to try and put an end to the cycle of gifting and re-gifting. We’ve put together a guide of things we think fellow vegans will really like to receive and also some charities you can make a donation to — why not sponsor an animal in a family or friend’s name? Lily Woods has written a thoughtful piece about why companion animals are so often given as presents at this time of year — The Dogs Trust revealed that they receive a call every five minutes in the weeks following Christmas from people wanting to give up their dogs. If anyone you know is considering an animal as a gift, make sure they read this first. Finally, I'm so excited to announce that we won Best Vegan Magazine at the VegFest UK Awards 2018! Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us, we're so grateful for your support. From all of us at Vegan Life, we wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas. See you next year
