  • I love experimenting with plant milks. As well as the common soya and almond milks, you can also seek out cashew, pea and hemp milk! The possibilities are endless.⁠
⁠
So what do we buy?⁠
⁠
👍Oatly Barista - this is the only thing my husband will have in coffee. He loves it.⁠
👍Soya milk - this is often fortified and a little sweet, so kids love it. My 4-year-old daughter has it on cereal every day.⁠
👍Coconut milk - great in porridge, overnight oats or a tropical smoothie.⁠
👍Almond milk - my personal preference for tea as it's quite mild.⁠
⁠
You can see more of my favourite dairy and egg swaps in my FREE 'Easy Being Vegan' pack! Including baking substitutes, cheeses, and chocolate. YUM.⁠
⁠
You also get a shopping list, easy meal plan, and personal action points to keep you on track as a new vegan.⁠

Who wants the link? Give me a heads up! I'll drop it in my bio.⁠

  • We have a few new lovely Learner Vegans here, so allow me to re-introduce myself!
☺️☺️
When I was 24, going vegan seemed impossible for me. I had all these preconceptions...
Veganism is expensive, right?
💰💰
I had no other vegans around me and my husband ate meat - it's not practical, is it?
😬😬
I didn't want to live on salad or be nutrient-deficient. I wasn't sure I could make a difference. The list goes on...
✍️✍️
But it turned out these were imaginary roadblocks. Some created by my own mind, others by a society that puts profit over compassion. When I finally decided that I couldn't contribute to animal cruelty and environmental damage anymore, veganism was much easier than I ever imagined.
🥰🥰
My food bill didn't go up. I could eat filling meals like pad thai, tacos and the occasional vegan cookie. I was healthier than ever. I found great new friends and support through events and online communities. My spouse was happy to try my vegan offerings.
🥯🍇
My only regret? That I didn't do it sooner.
💥💥
6 years later, there are still myths surrounding a vegan lifestyle. The great thing is that there are more vegan food options out there than EVER before. 💚💚
So what do I offer here? ⭐️OUR GROUP - 
A private Facebook group for those hoping to go vegan. Designed to help the vegan-curious, transitioning and new vegan on their journey! ⭐️The FREE 'Easy Being Vegan' pack -

  • We all need a little extra help sometimes.⁠
⁠
When I first decided to go vegan, I went through so many changes. Dealing with family’s opinions, living with a (then) non-vegan husband and daughter, wondering about nutrition, and changing my whole mindset. ⁠
I've had my share of mistakes - milk in salt and vinegar pringles? Who knew!⁠
I’ve also been through two healthy vegan pregnancies, eating plant-based for health, and now helping others to go vegan.⁠
⁠
I’m extremely passionate about showing people how easy veganism can really be. It’s great for the animals, your health and the environment. But like me, you might be finding it hard to navigate at first.⁠
⁠
One-on-one coaching can be ideal! Sometimes you don’t want to keep using google and staring at a screen… it’s nice to connect with someone, have an open conversation, get answers to YOUR specific questions, and hear a friendly voice!⁠

  • Worried about societal pressure...⁠
Is this you? ⁠
😎😎⁠
Those around you may never understand why you are vegan, but they don’t need to. The important thing is that you can calmly and confidently explain why you are vegan, and why that isn’t changing any time soon. Would your loved ones really want to see you forgoing your morals, or feeling less healthy, just because of convenience to them? If so, it’s time to evaluate who you keep close to you. Harsh, but true! ⁠
⁠
The people that matter take a little time to adjust, but they do. My family are so wonderful at making vegan cakes and thinking of me! ⁠
⁠
We can also mitigate stress by calling ahead at restaurants, letting friends know which eateries can cater for the whole group, or bringing out delicious vegan treats with us for everyone to try. Chocolate lattes and rocky road treats, anyone?⁠

  • Cheese, cheese, who loves cheese without the cruelty?!⁠
👋👋⁠
You can buy vegan cheese sauce mixes nowadays, but where's the fun in that?⁠
😉😉⁠
I use this recipe ALL THE TIME. For macaroni cheese, cauliflower bake, or as a dressing. Just don't leave it to stick to the bottom of the pan as I do sometimes! What can I say, I like to multitask when I cook.⁠
⬇️⬇️⁠
⁠
Ingredients:⁠
1 cup unsweetened soya or almond milk⁠
6 tbsp nutritional yeast⁠
2 tbsp cream cheese⁠
1 tbsp butter⁠
1 tbsp plain flour⁠
2 tsp dijon mustard⁠
⁠
Instructions:⁠
1. Melt the butter in a pan.⁠
2. In a bowl, whisk the flour and milk together. Add this to your butter on a medium heat.⁠
3. Add the nutritional yeast, mix together as it comes to the boil.⁠
4. Turn down the heat slightly and add your mustard and cream cheese. Allow to simmer and thicken for around 5 minutes.⁠
5. Your sauce is all done! Add to the dish you are making and enjoy.⁠
