Read Time:   |  16th November 2021

Join Holly and Molly on the Simply Vegan podcast for the latest vegan news, food reviews plus tips for being a new vegan at Christmas

Kicking off another World Vegan Month Special, Holly and Molly review the new beetroot pizza bases from Sacla, sustainable healthy shakes from Sust and Divine‘s new Orange Chocolate Thins.

The girls also discuss Facebook trolls, the news that a plant-based diet is cheaper than a meat one, and their thoughts on Claridge’s chef Daniel Humm quitting after a disagreement over his visions of a vegan future.

Your question this week is on being vegan at Christmas – how can we avoid awkwardness and disagreements and should we take our own food to eat? Email your questions to Holly, Molly and the Plant-Based Health Professionals at [email protected].

Finally, Holly shares one of her favourite, super easy recipes from the wonderful Fearne Cotton‘s Happy Vegan cookbook.

Tune in on Thursday to meet Day Radley from The Vegan Chef School, who chats about the rise of veganism, cooking from scratch on a budget, vegan nutrition and more.
