The reason why I'm vegan

With it being World Vegan Day November the 1st and World Vegan Month for the whole of November, I thought now is the appropriate time to celebrate how great I think veganism is in my first ever blog. So please forgive me if it’s not perfect!

I’ve been vegan for 4 and a half years now, and wow- what a life changing experience it’s been.
Veganism, for me has opened up a whole new world. It’s given me more compassion, more sanity (gosh I need that), more energy, more meaning and more life.

My whole family are vegetarians. I have been a vegetarian since the age of 1 (ish) so I've never experienced meat (queue the ‘but bacon’). Initially, I went vegan for my health. I experienced some eating disorder tendencies and lost a lot of weight in a very short space of time… One night I thought enough is enough, I need to sort myself out and so I came across Deliciously Ella. I’d been toying with the idea of veganism for a while so overnight I became a vegan (just to note, veganism doesn't always mean healthy!).

I started to get more fascinated with health and how food can have a massive effect on our body. I came across daily bread a few years ago and was so chuffed that a wholefood shop like this existed, with all my favourite things! I am also currently doing a degree in nutritional therapy as I would like to help other people to regain back their health.

Now I'm a vegan for everything, for the animals, for the planet and for my health. Vegans and vegetarians look set to make up a quarter of the British population in 2025 so it shows how much mainstream It has become. For me, food is a BIG part of my life and I’ve never felt deprived.
I am a snacker and am obsessed with our range of Pulsin bars, Montezuma 100 percent chocolate and Ombar mylk buttons.
I order in a range of brilliant vegan food from suppliers, including Flo’s kitchen, Naturally vegan cheese, Vork pie, The raw chocolate pie company, Pure and raw and Nat’s (No bad stuff) so please do pop along and have a look at some yummy treats that we sell!

Why not try vegan one day a week? We don’t just eat lettuce leaves or grass, promise. :)
