TURNING VEGGIE: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Becoming vegetarian really is easy – and Viva! is here to make it easier still. Vegetarian food is easy to buy, easy to prepare and very, very easy to enjoy. Far from “missing out”, almost all vegetarians find that they end up eating a greater variety of foods than they ever did when they ate meat. There isn’t a supermarket, a market or a restaurant you can visit today that won’t offer vegetarian food and the range available – from fabulous curries, incredibly tasty “meat substitutes” and gorgeous fruits and vegetables – is almost endless. The days when British food was “meat and two veg” are long gone and you will eat better than ever, we guarantee it.

But we know it still feels like a big step to take: that’s why we’ve put all our knowledge and experience on these pages to help you. Whatever kind of advice you need, it should be here. And if it isn’t: email vegadvice@viva.org.uk and we’ll provide it personally.
