Great Expectations

Despite being one of the main motivators behind turning to veganism, health often takes a backseat to ethical issues. But what physical changes can new vegans really expect to happen?

Back in the summer of 2017, I scrolled, in total awe, down my cousin’s Instagram feed. While we admittedly hadn’t seen each other face to face in years, the woman I was looking at, posed tranquilly in front of endless oceans or upon cliffs in a faraway country, seemed to be an entirely diferent person. She was enviously thin, had long curls of shiny hair that were fitting for a shampoo advert, and skin that literally glowed. I flicked past picture after picture, wondering not only where she was (and was it allinclusive?) but how she had become the poster girl of health and real, more-thanskin- deep, radiance. Of course, I’m no stranger to an Instagram filter or two, but the truth behind the pictures of my cousin was far less artificial. She was, in fact, the epitome of all that was good about veganism.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the March issue. It’s my favourite time of year, as the evenings get lighter and the first signs of spring emerge. It’s the perfect time of year to dust off the winter cobwebs and refocus on our goals. This year has already seen a lot of change for the vegan movement — Veganuary was a huge success, with 250,000 sign-ups, and hopefully a large proportion of those who took part will continue their vegan journeys. We have seen an unprecedented amount of vegan food launches, too — in supermarkets and restaurants — and it feels like change is really happening. But with all change there is controversy — we take a look into the issues and backlash surrounding some of these new launches. Mother’s Day is on the 31st of March, and what better way to celebrate the women who raised us than by treating them to a vegan high tea? We’ve rounded up the best and the recipes you need if you want to make your own. It’s important to remember those who don’t get to spend the day with loved ones, and this includes the millions of dairy cows cruelly separated from their parents. We take some time to reflect. We also had the pleasure of talking to the inspirational James Aspey this month. The activist and campaigner has some great advice for advocating. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Smith
