  • Forget-Me-Not Animal Rescue
    lives with and all the billions who have suffered and died in the meat industry in laboratories in fur farms zoos circuses and many other abusive situations After much searching we found an ideal small property that had the land we required it is an environmental haven as we are fortunate to share with so many wild creatures we never knew existed The land is also organic even though it is not certified so The animals we have rescued so far have all come to us as a result of human cruelty and ignorance sadly it never fails to surprise me how low the human race can sink in their treatment of each other as well as all the beautiful creatures that we personally we are in awe of All animals who come to us have a home here for life although we do re home when new friends pass our very high standards regarding a home check Recently we rescued sixteen hens that had been imprisoned in a battery farm The farmer wanted to get rid of these so called spent hens and we were very glad to take them in to our rescue Some of them were very poorly and we are giving them extra TLC but some of the hens now named Rose Poppy Sweet Pea Marigold Sunflower and Cornflower we love our wild flowers were outside pecking and dust bathing the day after they arrived It was fantastic to watch them and know they will spend the rest of their lives with us unlike millions of others bred to die specifically for unnecessary foods please see our website for animal free recipes One of our rescued guinea pigs we renamed Topsy turvey came to us blind although we weren t told this at the time maybe

  • VBites - Closed for Winter
    to say a big thank you for getting my vitamins to me so quickly REALLY impressed with your products and your speed Helen UK VBites Closed for Winter Here at Shop Vegan we were very sorry to hear recently that VBites Heather Mills vegan restaurant café in Hove had closed for the winter A message posted on the VBites website states that the restaurant closed from Saturday 11th September It goes on to assure visitors that this is simply an end of summer holiday and that it will remain closed over the winter to focus on staff training recipe development and VBites franchising In addition the statement says that a host of activities are going to be laid on throughout the winter months including cookery workshops and private parties with further details of some of these to be posted on the VBites website soon It does seem a little strange that the restaurant has shut down for the winter as much of the business that the restaurant relies upon surely comes from the large local veggie and vegan community in and around the Brighton and Hove area who unlike the tourists will still be there and eating out throughout the winter months A change of emphasis from summer themed food items and outdoors eating to offering more seasonal dishes such as warming vegetable soups and nut roasts in the recently refurbished interior would certainly have been more understandable and also in line with what the other vegetarian and vegan pubs cafés and restaurants in the area will be doing throughout the winter months We do hope that the information regarding the closure just being an end of summer holiday is completely accurate and we wish all of the VBites staff a good break through the winter months We re keeping

  • VBites - Best Vegan Café?
    some slightly more nutritious vegetable dishes Also on the menu were a number of Lite Bites and one of these in particular caught our eye The Soya Chicken Style Satay Skewers with Peanut Sauce sounded very much like one of our favourite dishes from the wonderful Veggieworld in Bletchley So naturally we had to order some of these to make a comparison So that we tried a good selection of the other dishes we also ordered something from the fast food section a hot dog with tomato relish as well as Spaghetti Bolognese and the Sweet Potato Green Thai Curry with Crunchy Oriental Vegetables and Basmati Rice Considering how busy the café was the food came very quickly and all arrived together It was also nicely presented The first thing we tucked into were the chicken style satay skewers with peanut sauce We have to say that these were a slight disappointment compared to the equivalent at Veggieworld The two skewers consisted of three large pieces of chicken on each one with the satay sauce in a small bowl next to them The sauce was very runny and although the taste was good enough it did lack the slightly hot spicy tang and crunchy peanut consistency that the much thicker sauce at Veggieworld has At Veggieworld the skewers have 5 or 6 smaller pieces on each skewer and they are usually served on a bed of lettuce with the much thicker satay sauce poured over the top Much better proportions all round really as after eating the skewers at VBites we were still left with more than half a bowl full of sauce Probably because we had the Veggieworld version in our minds and the expectation that it would live up to this we were a little let down by this dish overall Next was the Spaghetti Bolognese which was certainly very tasty and everything that you would expect from a soya mince version of this classic dish It was a little cool when it reached us but the portion size was generous and the sauce was very good so it was eaten quickly before the sea breeze could make it too cold The offering that we chose from the fast food section a hot dog was served on its own with just a small amount of tomato relish and slightly disappointingly no onions which would certainly have given it a more authentic taste The fast food options like the hot dogs and veggie burgers are probably the sort of the foods that will go down well with younger diners and with both vegans and non vegans alike as you basically get exactly what you would expect from them They use the Redwood sausages and burgers which along with the Fry s vegan products are certainly the tastiest that are available in our opinion On to the Green Thai Curry which was presented particularly nicely The taste here was excellent too and the Basmati rice was cooked to perfection The

  • Meat Free Monday - What Difference Will it Make?
    once He added We should care about climate change because if we don t we are going to leave our children and their children in a hell of a mess Of course none of this will come as a surprise to the estimated 250 000 vegans and many vegetarians in the UK who have long sought to highlight the environmental damage that the farming of animals causes According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation meat production is responsible for 18 of greenhouse gas emissions This compares to an estimated 13 from transport which has long been the main focus of campaigns to reduce emissions So what difference can the Meat Free Monday campaign really make It is estimated that each person who stops eating meat for one day a week will reduce their carbon footprint by 68928 pounds of CO 2 during the course of one year Certainly having the high profile backing of Sir Paul and other celebrities will assure that the campaign is well covered in the mainstream media and hopefully it will encourage a number of people to think about trying a meat free diet for one day a week thereby reducing their CO 2 emissions if only in the short term Any longer term benefits though must come from the realisation and acknowledgment that transport alone is not to blame for climate change and that the way we breed and exploit animals for our own use is damaging the Earth to an even greater degree If the media starts to focus consistently on the part that farming of animals both for meat and for the dairy industry has to play in climate change then we might see a more subtle but long lasting change in attitudes towards the use of animals There will always
