When I first became vegan nearly 15 years ago, only in my wildest dreams could I haved walked into my local supermarket to find a dedicated vegan magazine…
Dreams do come true! A few weeks ago I was contacted by VeganLife, a bi-monthly magazine that will hit the shops on August 21st. I’m delighted that they asked me to join their team of resident bloggers as this looks to be a real gem….
It was super-exciting to take a little peek at the pre-launch issue… One hundred pages dedicated to cruelty-free living – from vegan celebrities, green living, travel, beauty products and fashion to the all-important recipes. Editor Jane Hughes, who ably edited the Vegetarian Society’s magazine for 14 years, has all the expertise to bring the right people and quality content together to make this a keeper!
She says “The time is right for a really stylish and positive magazine that celebrates every aspect of vegan living. Interest in veganism is soaring, with celebrities advocating a plant-based diet, sportspeople smashing records and new vegan and raw food restaurants mushrooming across the capital. What started as a niche movement is now ready to go mainstream.”
I’m particularly thrilled to find a dedicated plant-based magazine appearing on our shelves after veganism has become the hottest new food trend in my native Germany.
(Read all about it here: Sausage-Sizzling Germany. An unexpected vegan paradise!)
The magazine will be available from places like WH Smith, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and independent whole food outlets and also as a digital subscription on August 21st. That’s only 11 more sleeps!!!
As I mentioned, it’s published bi-monthly and the cost will be £3.95 but it’s particularly good value when you subscribe for the year.
(At £14.50 for six issues that’s only £2.40 every other month and will last me much longer than a soya cappuccino to go 😉 )
Obviously, with my food writer and photographer hat on, I’m going to flick to the recipe pages straight away. But I’m just as excited to read about new products on the market and travel ideas.
Now, over to you: What would you like to see in a new magazine? Do you need more cupcakes in your life or is it green issues and the latest book reviews?
