Canada food guide removes dairy

The new Canada food guide has made global headlines, by overhauling its dietary suggestions by ditching dairy, and recommending that Canadians consume more plant-based foods, and less meat.

The guide is created by the federal government, and seeks to influence the meals served in public institutions as well as private homes. It used to feature four core food groups, including milk and milk products, meat and alternatives, grain products, and fruits and vegetables. Cheese has always been let of the Canadian guide, and water is the advised drink. Now, the previous four groups have been abolished, with meat and dairy being removed from the guidelines. Instead the groups have been replaced with a plate half covered by fruits and vegetables, a quarter whole grains, and a quarter ‘proteins’ — which feature meat and dairy foods, as well as plant-based proteins like tofu and chickpeas. The guidelines read: “Eat veggies, fruit, whole grains, plant-based protein foods more regularly.” Additionally, they tell people to reduce saturated fat — which comes from meat and dairy products.

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
