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!
