Get the low-down on cooking oils as Holly and Molly are back for more Simply Vegan podcast fun!

Catch up with Holly and Molly as they discuss what they’ve been up to this week, how they deal with non-vegan friends and the new plant-based Burger King in London.

They also review some exciting new flavoured mayonnaise from Barries Mayo, hot cross bun doughnuts from Crosstown (yes, you heard right!), and vitamin gummies from Nutriburst.

Nutritionist Rohini Bajekal from Plant-Based Health Professionals also joins the podcast to set us straight on the complex subject of oils (which ones are healthy? which ones should we avoid?), and Holly and Molly answer a listener question about buying from non-vegan companies.
