My Top 5 for Vegan Eating Out & Eating In - Happy World Vegan Day!

Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve always been vegetarian, the only one growing up in a big family eating mostly peanut butter and rice krispies before I learnt to cook!

A few years ago, I decided to cut out dairy & eggs, and go vegan. Some of my clients, friends and family are veggie or vegan, some aren’t, and that’s also cool - it’s a personal choice.

What I have noticed though is that lots more people are asking me about cutting down on meat or dairy, or adding more veg for lots of different reasons, and i’m happy to help with that…

Sooooooo…. In celebration of World Vegan Day 2018, here’s some ideas for vegan eating in and eating out in Belfast!
