Is Vegan Pizza The Recipe to Turn UK to Vegan Diet

Vegan Pizza Recipe Will Turn UK to Healthy Vegan Diet

Vegan Pizza; could it cure world's ills?
What do you think?

If Dominos Pizza Chain went Vegan would people just give and say " OK I give in , that's it ! , you win, I've run out of excuses, I'm going Vegan!"

Would they?


For many people it's true.  Excuses are quite frequently I would if I could but I can't -  it's too boring/difficult/leftfield (delete/insert as appropriate)

Maybe pizza could be the catalyst. maybe it's true that if there were a vegan pizza waiting for you to just pick up the phone during the adverts on TV and then wait for a spotty youth on a moped to run over your daffodils and bang on your door before the free pizza delivery time limit is up.

Ask your omnivourous friends please. Is it really that simple? If it is then I'm on the case next week

Let me know!

Dr. Oz Mark Bitman vegan until 6 pm VB6 Vegan Diet

Dr. Oz reveals how to improve your health by going vegan until 6 pm - National Holistic Health |

I just wonder how long it will take these journalists to work out that if you go vegan all the time your body will really thank you for it. Do they think that their body won't notice if they stuff it full of foods that increase their risk of cancer and diabetes after 6 pm?

Surely it's just like saying I only smoke after 6 o'clock or I only drink Vodka after 6PM ?

Granted it's better than smoking all the time all day long, drinking whisky for breakfast, eating bacon for breakfast and burgers and steaks for lunch but seriously.

Yes going vegan some of the time is better than not going vegan at all.

But if you really want to see a difference in your health and reduce your risk of disease try this book
