Plant-based in Portugal’s capital

Rachel Kerry shares her travels of vegan-friendly Lisbon

When I first went vegan four years ago, I worried that travelling would be difficult, and I did struggle on my first vegan holiday abroad. But fast-forward to now and, thanks to the internet, the Happy Cow app and an increasingly herbivorous world, I can be vegan and proud. When I go away on holiday, I no longer have to survive on paprika Pringles, salad and sorbet. I have a whole range of options to explore, and Lisbon certainly didn’t disappoint on that front. As well as tasty vegan food, my best friend Natalie and I were also looking for sunshine, castles and cocktails and we got those, and then some.

About Vegan Life

The year is flying by, but when things are moving at breakneck speed, it’s important to stop and take stock. This month’s interview with the brilliant Lucy Watson gave me cause to pause — when talking to Lucy about her hopes for veganism in the future, she replied, “I hope vegans will start being kinder to one another, we are in this for the same reasons and trying to ‘out vegan’ one another just isn’t productive.” Every day on social media we see vegans tearing into other vegans — emotions run high when you’re deeply passionate about something, but is this actually helpful to the cause? We are all after the same future — one where animal welfare is as important as our own — but, surely in-fighting in the vegan community is counterintuitive. We all need to think before we post, comment or reprimand, before we send that email or write the letter. Would that passion and fire be better spent elsewhere? Should we be channelling our energy into helping non-vegans make better choices, instead of attacking our own? It’s something to think about. There are some terrible crises happening across our Earth currently, and it is a very frightening time. I really enjoyed Fat Gay Vegan’s insightful piece this month — he discusses how bringing people’s attention to veganism with environmental issues is a great start, but that we shouldn’t forget to explain about how animal exploitation is a crucial part of the conversation still. Check out his guidance on p30. Enjoy the issue,
