In the past couple of years, there’s been a noticeable increase in the popularity of veganism and plant-based diets. I guess there’s so much information now available on the health, environmental and ethical benefits of these lifestyles that more people are feeling encouraged to give them a try.
And never slow to spot a new trend, UK businesses have been busy developing and launching all manner of vegan-friendly products. Gone are the days when I’d be lucky to find a carton of soya milk in my local supermarket. Now I have a choice of five or six vegan milks, as well as yoghurt, cream, custard, cheese and ice cream. Restaurants (even high street chains!) are now offering vegan options, while small independents are selling a plethora of vegan goodies including toiletries, make-up, shoes, sweets, cakes, holidays, and even weddings. Never has it been a better time to go plant-based!
And even in the short amount of time that I’ve been blogging, it’s been noticeable how veganism has transformed into a diverse and vibrant movement, spanning all sectors of society and age groups. It’s definitely shaken off its old stereotypes. Vegan is coming into vogue ♥
And to help it on its way, the creators of OM Yoga are just about to launch the UK’s first ever, high street vegan lifestyle magazine.
The magazine will feature lots of gorgeous recipes, articles on family life, nutrition, product innovations, fashion and beauty, interviews with top vegan celebrities and athletes, and much more besides. If you’re interested in healthy eating or cruelty-free lifestyles, then this magazine is for you!
Issue 1 of Vegan Life hits our shops on 21st August. As an introductory offer, it’s being sold in a polybag with its sister publication, OM Yoga. That means two magazines for the bargain price of £3.95! You’ll find it in Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda, Boots, WHSmiths and independent stockists.
Want the magazine to arrive on your doorstep? Well, there’s a subscription service starting at £14.50 for one year (instead of £32.70) which includes a fab free gift. European and Worldwide subscriptions are also available, so no one misses out.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the launch of Vegan Life, so when they contacted me about joining their Vegan Life Blogger Community, I was very happy to accept the invitation. As a Vegan Life Blogger, I’ll be able to share all the latest news on the magazine, as well as my own reviews of Vegan Life features and recipes.
Fancy a sneaky peak at Issue 1? You can check it out here.
Doesn’t it look fab?
Only 4 days until the launch. I can’t wait!

Oo, this is very exciting. I have to say I’m so excited about how much more mainstream and accessible being Vegan is these days, it’s changed a lot in the 4 years since I turned Vegan, it’s a really exciting time right now.
Ooo I’ll look out for it! Hope you’ve had a lovely Summer Sharon!
Well done Sharon!
Thank you for the link to the preview – I must say it looks very interesting.
We used to have a really good vegan magazine over here but it isn’t produced anymore. We have a great ‘health’ magazine though that has snippets of vegan info and recipes in it!
I loooove how accessible plant-based eating is becoming!!
The magazine looks great, 4 days to go, woohoo!!
I learned about the magazine, they followed me on social networks and later read about it on HouseVegan’s blog. The magazine looks amazing, I cannot wait to see the reveal!
I’m really excited to test out my electronic copy of this – just waiting for a free stretch of time to settle in and enjoy! I think I picked a good time to move to the UK as you are a step ahead of Australia in veganism being very easy 🙂 (Although it is becoming much, much easier in Australia too – raw food especially has become a bit of a trend there.)
I just bought a copy! Took me a while to find it though.
Congrats on being part of the vegan life blogger community! I loved issue 1, it had a good balance of great articles and vegan recipes, can’t wait for issue 2! :o)
