Author: Holly Johnson

Read Time:   |  22nd March 2022

Holly and Molly are back for more Simply Vegan Podcast fun as they discuss what to eat for peri-menopause and how to talk to non-vegan friends

Today we’re reviewing lunchbox cookies from Snackzilla, an exciting cauliflower hybrid from CauliShoots, and brand new dishes (including a vegan calzone!) from White Rabbit.

We also have Doctor Laura Freeman from Plant-Based Health Professionals answering questions on peri-menopause and diet, and Holly and Molly discuss how to chat with non-vegan friends. Should we try to convert them? If so, how? Send your own questions to us at [email protected].

This episode is sponsored by California Walnuts which, like all walnuts, are the only tree nut to contain a significant amount of omega-3 ALA, which is good for your heart and overall wellness.

The taste and texture of California Walnuts make them a versatile ingredient for all kinds of plant-based dishes. California Walnuts absorb the flavours of other ingredients and give your dish a healthy crunch. 30g of California Walnuts* offers 4.4 g of protein and 1.4 g of fibre. For great tasting walnuts, keep them in the fridge. For longer storage, place them in the freezer for up to 12 months.

So why not grab a bag of California Walnuts next time you are shopping? Make sure you check the pack for Produce of California or Produce of USA. To find out more visit
