“I watched Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscars speech and it just hit me in the face." Casualty actress Olivia D’Lima


The girls are back from their holidays and Holly shares her favourite spots to dine out vegan-style in London.

They also discuss the new worldwide Plant-Based Treaty and an article that claims meat-eaters are the preachy ones, not vegans!

Holly and Molly also review pickles and ferments by Vadasz, protein-packed soups from Press London and Sweet Freedom’s low cal Choc Pots.

Each week they answer your questions, too and this week you asked: how can I lose weight on a vegan diet, and how do I know I’m getting enough calcium?

In this weeks interview, Casualty actor and Best Newcomer nominee Olivia D’Lima explains why she went from veggie to vegan during lockdown.

As well as her experience of eating on set, how Joaquin Phoenix inspired her and how she’s influencing others with cooking, not preaching.

She also shares her favourite dishes, inspired by her Goan roots.
