"White people didn’t invent veganism – plant-based food has been entrenched in diets across the globe way before they came along" Sarah Bentley, founder of Made in Hackney


Holly and Molly discuss their progress with this month’s Whole Food Plant-Based Challenge, and the news that 1,000s of pigs are likely to be culled following a national shortage of meat workers.

They also chat about a new study that has revealed that meat-eaters replacing just five meals a week with plant-based meat alternatives experience improved gut health.

Their reviews this week include the new English Cheesecake Company flavours at Waitrose and vegan-friendly, low waste cleaning products from Bide.

Listener questions this week include “How fast should I switch my diet” and discussions about oil-free cooking.

In this week’s interview, Sarah Bentley is founder of Made in Hackney, working with communities to promote healthy plant-based cooking. She discusses food inequality, cooking on a budget, growing your own veg with minimal space and the online cookery courses covering everything from Caribbean food to cheese making.

Next week, Holly chats to best-selling author and queen of fast, affordable cooking Katy Beskow AKA ‘The 15-minute vegan’.
