“I like to focus on one ingredient to get out of my comfort zone and be more creative with my cooking.” Romy London, vegan blogger and recipe creator

In the first episode of a brand new series, Holly and Molly discuss the latest vegan news including renowned meat lover Gordon Ramsay’s advertising campaign for a plant-based milk company in the US, an 84-year old vegan who’s just completed an ultra-marathon, and the 3D-printed meat launching in the UK later this year.

They also review next-gen meat replacement OmniPork, a new vegan cupcake delivery box from Lola’s Cupcakes, and Choc Shots from Sweet Freedom before answering questions on energy levels and new vegan meal ideas. 

In this weeks interview, Holly catches up with Romy London, a recipe creator and food blogger who knows exactly how to keep things exciting in the kitchen!

She shares the story of how she went vegan after being raised on deer offal as a child, lets us in on her cooking secrets including getting to grips with tofu, and offers up tips for being more inventive with our plant-based meals.

This episode is sponsored by Sweet Freedom. Sweet Freedom Choc Shot is delicious, better-for-you chocolate syrup.

It’s incredibly popular with dieters as it’s only 13 calories per teaspoon plus it’s naturally sweetened only with fruit extracts, has no added sugar, is GMO-free, palm oil-free, recyclable packaging and even high in healthy fibre! 

As you can see from their hugely buzzy IG and FB it has hundreds of uses and masses of user-generated content!

From drizzling over ice cream, pancakes, porridge, yoghurt, fresh fruit to healthier baking – we love it in our overnight oats and you can simply add to chilled plant milk and stir to make amazing chocolate milk treat.

It’s SO incredibly popular it’s now in all supermarkets including Sainsbury’s, Tesco Waitrose, Asda, Morrisons (find it next to the hot chocolate) plus Holland & Barrett and Ocado.  The founders are huge animal lovers, and so all their products are cruelty-free and they even donate part of their profits to PETA animal charity.
