Vegan Life: Issue 24

You know a magazine is going to be good when the cover looks like a prop from ‘Grease’.


From booze to cookbooks to cauliflower, I’ve picked some of my top pages from this bangin’ issue. If you like what you see, make sure to grab yourself a copy before they all fizzle out!

‘…the new generation of flavoured drinks’

My bank account is weeping now that I’ve discovered 6 new (seemingly quite pricey) beverages…

I’m going to do everything in my power to hunt these six drinks down and review them for any thirsty and/or curious vegans out there, so stay tuned!*

*this is primarily an excuse to get a bit tipsy on a weekday…

‘Food Choices’

‘Food Choices’ is a serious must-watch for vegans and non-vegans alike. Featuring interviews with bloggers, athletes, doctors and activists, it’s an enlightening documentary which explores the advantages of a plant-based diet for our health, the environment and animal welfare.

This issue of Vegan Life included a interview with the director behind the film – Michal Siewierski. Siewierski talks about veganism with such enthusiasm, joy and openness, as he strives to ’empower the viewer with information that can be truly live changing, and in some instances even lifesaving’.

It was a great read and raised many points which I’m sure all vegans can relate to in some way or another!

Meet the chef: Sam Murphy

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine presented me with Sam Murphy’s new cookbook, ‘Beautifully Real Food‘. It’s an absolute joy to read, featuring a wealth of innovative recipes which have clearly been created with precision and love. She has a style and eye for detail I could only dream of, and I’m sure will be reigning the vegan world not long from now.

This issue of Vegan Life featured an interview with Sam, along with a few of her signature recipes – turmeric baked beans & potato hash, black bean nachos and raspberry and white chocolate slices.

Of all the vegan cookbooks I’ve perused, Sam Murphy’s is right up there – hearty yet healthy, grungy yet chic. She’s nailed it.
