VEGAN EATS | VegFest Brighton

Sunday, 29 March 2015

Today was finally the day my housemates and I had been looking forward to for weeks: it was the second day of the VegFest weekend in Brighton! I chose to eat a vegan diet (and pursue a vegan lifestyle as good as possible as well) not only for ethical and environmental reasons, but also for health. That being said, it's safe to say that I rarely eat what is considered vegan junk food and my diet mainly consists of whole foods, meaning lots of fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and nuts. However, being the little foodie I am, I do love to indulge in a big piece of vegan cake or a pizza with vegan cheese every now and then. Obviously, the VegFest was the ideal occasion for me to let my inner fatty out (as tumblr would call it: an unchaperoned kid at a birthday party) and indulge on all kinds of foods, healthy and not so healthy because, I could for once eat everything on offer! My housemates and I ate ourselves through the food stalls, trying everything from hot dogs, burgers, curries, raw chocolate cakes, fried plantains, crêpes and just about every taster on offer. I also finally got to try a young coconut for the first time and oh my! I'm obsessed with it and brought the coconut home to get all out of the flesh out of it. I had a great time eating my weight in food, buying chocolates for my family and buying cruelty free, vegan shampoo and I really hope that this event will take place again next year! (I mean, if you ask me, this could be happening once a month, ha) 
I found out that this event takes place all over the UK, so if this is something you're interested in, definitely check it out - no matter if you're vegan yourself or not as I can definitely say that everyone I talked to (mostly non-vegans) enjoyed it a lot!

PS: I've shared quite a few impressions of my day on my snapchat and generally have been more active recently, so if you want to have a bit of an insight on my life, add me under noraameliie!

    Young coconut as you said is sooo delicious! I used to eat it more often when I was a kid cos grandma used to have a coconut tree on her backyard :)
