It's great that there's more variety yet. But what's with the naming/copywriting? Vegan teas and treats? What teas aren't vegan?
the ones with milk in....
Or treated with pesticides
Some people have steak for tea. That's not vegan.
Maybe they're referring to high tea / afternoon tea / cream (substitute) teas?
I'm not sure what purpose it would serve to restrict ones diet in the interests of being extreme. I suspect its more likely that with increased publicity regarding the cruelty of the dairy industry many would consider this a sensible development from vegetarianism. Whilst not vegan personally it is perfectly possible to eat a balanced and healthy diet. I'm struggling to see anything stupid about it? Exciting to see a new cafe in the area :)
Well for myself, I have MS and a very thick book full of evidence that the saturated fat in animal products is very bad for me, and that dairy in particular triggers a specific immune response that I want to avoid. Since going plant based (plus fish) at the start of last year I have felt fantastic, run two marathons, two ultra marathons and I capped off the year by climbing a 4300m mountain.
The diet and other lifestyle changes contained in Overcoming MS is suitable for anyone who wants to look after their health, but especially people with heart conditions and other autoimmune conditions.
I'm unlikely to indulge in any vegan "treats" though as they almost always contain coconut oil or other dodgy fats.
What? Why do you care what other people eat Graham? People you've never met. And further why do you care what other people eat to such a degree you go on a local community noticeboard to criticise them for exercising their own choices? And not only that you question their motivations for doing so too. Eeesh. No one care about your cleverness in eating eggs and dairy. No one cares what you eat Graham and I expect we'd all rather you felt the same way.
New? Jains and many Hindus and Buddhists have been vegan for few hundred years.
Graham your statement "I'm not so stupid as to exclude dairy products, and eggs, from my diet." is actually very naive. Perhaps you should educate yourself on the impact (and cruelty) of dairy and eggs on both your own body and the environment before posting such naive comments?
Veganism is not "the new Thing".
I suggest you watch "Earthlings", available on Youtube.
Perhaps also google where most water consumption goes - you turning your house water taps off has no impact on saving this particular resource. Educate yourself a bit please.
You come across as a very ignorant human being I have to say...
