TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY TO VEGANISM

As a child, I witnessed the slaughtering of a cow and was utterly shocked. It was the first time in my life that I became aware of the connection between a living creature and the meat on my plate. I suppressed this traumatic memory for some time, until my teen years when I began to abstain from meat.

In my early 20s, I began attending lectures, seminars, and training sessions on health, where I repeatedly heard of the healing potential of a plant-based diet — I was fascinated and devoted myself to studying the subject.

About Vegan Life

Arriving in the office on a cold, crisp morning, I overheard colleagues talking about how they had slept the night before, and it got me thinking about how important good quality shut-eye is. Are you one of those lucky people who are asleep as soon as their head hits the pillow, up early and ready to take on the world? Or perhaps you’re often awake during the early hours, clock-watching, before spending the following morning reaching for the coffee. If you fall into the latter camp, check out our feature to see how you can eat your way to a great night’s sleep. One of the best parts about winter is the satisfying feeling of warming up after being out in the elements, and there is no better way to do this than with a restorative bowl of soup. We’ve put together all the recipes you need to feel nourished and comforted this November, and Sean O’Callaghan, AKA Fat Gay Vegan, tells us why he loves soup season, too. Donkeys are beautiful, peaceful creatures that are facing further threat due to the horrific donkey skin trade; we shed light on what is happening and how you can help. It’s a tough but essential read. If you’re out enjoying fireworks and bonfires this month, remember to keep animals safe. We’ve got the best advice for caring for both companion animals and wildlife. I hope you enjoy the issue
