Oprah Winfrey Goes Vegan

The 21-Day Cleanse: Oprah's Blog 2

Oprah Winfrey - vegan OK it's only 21 days - but you know how it is - once you've dived in then you suddenly realise it's not about giving up it's about saving , vibrancy, having your eyes opened, more energy, optimum health, inner peace, saving the planet andloads of delicious new dishes you never knew existed.

Orah Winfrey is unlikely to stray very far away from veganism once she's tried it for 21 days - it's no longer why? it becomes Why not?

Oprah winfrey's journey of discovery could be world changing for vegetarianism and veganism with her huge Angel Network and influential friends (Lord knows everyone know's she likes her food) that's got to kick a few stereotypes and preconcieved ideas about being a vegan in the goolies.

National BBQ Week 2008

National BBQ Week has been hijacked by the Vegetarians and Vegans for 2008. Linda McCartney claim their products are better than the real thing, whilst Vegans in Bristol are planning a 10kg Vegan Hog Roast (for 10,000 people - how much is that each?)

In London Croydon Vegetarians are staging a Battle of the Bangers Barbecue challenging Londoners to judge the best meat free BBQ option out of 5 different vegan sausages Redwoods, Frys, Linda McCartney, Real Eat and perhaps Northumbrian Wicken Fen vegetarian sausages too.

Croydon Is National Vegetarian Week 2008

National Vegetarian week Croydon is Top London Venue for National Vegetarian Week Events

National Vegetarian Week Croydon is linked to some highly esteemed people from DH Lawrence to Kate Moss but it is often the butt of comedians’ satirical taunts. Certainly it’s a place full of oxymorons , thus a lush oasis of comedic material ready for harvest.

Rarely making the top 10 fact lists about Croydon is that Croydon is home to one of the oldest surviving vegetarian groups in the world. Croydon Vegetarians was established in 1886 and is still going strong. Armed with this fact it’s probably then not quite so surprising that Croydon should have the most events organised for the Vegetarian Society’s National Vegetarian Week (19th – 25th May)

This year Croydon is celebrating National Vegetarian Week on every day of the week

1. National Vegetarian Week kicks off with a chocolate tasting session in Oasis Natural Health 96 The High Street, Croydon. Other goodies to try will be on offer too. Ladies from Croydon Vegetarians will be there to help you with any burning questions you may have.
2. On Tuesday 20th May a Croydon greengrocers in Waddon will be challenging Croydon citizens to try a different fruit or vegetable and dishing out free tasters. Graham the greengrocer will also have some tips about what to do with various more exotic fruit and veg and their nutritional properties.
3. On Wednesday the 21st Oasis health food store in Croydon High street has organised a Battle of the Bangers BBQ to engage Londoners and inspire them to judge London’s best meat free BBQ alternative from 5 competitor manufacturers. You’ll be able to nibble on Linda McCartney, Frys, Redwoods, Real Eat and Wicken Fen sausages. Celebrity nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston will be on hand to answer nutrition questions.
4. Thursday 22nd is the night when Lush Croydon will be hosting a pamper party, a book-signing, massage and taster therapy sessions. The first 50 visitors will receive a free rare bath bomb not available in the shops – a Rainbow Worrier.
5. On Friday night the 23rd Peppertons vegetarian restaurant in Selhurst will be offering a free glass of wine to the first 20 diners and the option to try a dairy free vegan cheese board supplied by Bute Island foods.
6. For Saturday the 24th of May Croydon’s Fair trade shop Fair Enough opposite the Croydon Parish Church in Church Street will be holding a Fair trade Tea Party for National Vegetarian Week with Fair trade cake and biscuits to try from Doves Farm.
National Vegetarian week 2008 celebrations end with a finale down in Bristol harbour on the 31st May and the 1st June at the Bristol Vegan Fayre. - 10,000 people attracted by an awesome line up of bands, food, speakers, entertainment and ethical shopping.
