Veganism is currently in vogue in the UK and reportedly almost 3 million people in the UK tried a vegan diet in January (veganuary), according to a survey by vouchercodes. To meet the rising popularity of more people following a plant based diets free from animal products, retailers, restaurants and other vendors have significantly expanded their plant based dishes on the menu and many more establishments are solely serving plant based food and drinks.

The Greggs vegan sausage roll launched in January 2019 is an example of how strong customer demand and a petition by PETA signed by more than 20,000 people persuaded Greggs to launch this product. This sausage roll has been a hit with customers where the sausage meat has been replaced by Greggs quorn recipe and vegan puff pastry.



Similarly in January 2020, Greggs also launched a vegan steak bake which has been designed to imitate their original meat steak bake, including 96 layers of light and crisp puff pastry. The vegan version uses Quorn pieces instead and diced onions in a rich gravy.


It was only last year that I somehow managed to sacrifice my love of cheese and follow a plant based eating plan for three consecutive months and then continue to adopt a vegan eating plan long term.

I (Rachel Garwood, the founder of YourCook) became a vegetarian in 2008, having been a heavy meat eater previously, where lamb, chicken, salmon, duck and seabass were some of my favourite foods. At the time my friends, family and many others questioned and were puzzled by my change in diet. However, sticking with a no more meat eating plan, helped me shift alot of excess extra pounds. The progression to a plant based diet in 2018 proved not to be that challenging once I put my mind to it, and the variety of tasty and delicious food that a plant based diet offers surprised me.

The benefits of incorporating more plant based ingredients into your eating plan are numerous. There are numerous books, articles and videos on the topic.

An interesting book that is currently on my Kindle is How Now Not to Die:
Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease by Michael Greger and Gene Stone. I also recently listened to the Rich Roll podcast on Spotify where he interviews Neal Barnard about the benefits of a plant based diet on your body (published on January 13th 2020). Have a read of the book and a listen to the podcast and it would be great if you could share your views on the content in the comments section below.
