2000 People a Week are ‘Going Veggie’
More and more people are deciding not to eat meat and animal products in the UK. The UK Vegetarian Society claim 2000 people a week in Britain are ‘going veggie’*, plus 25% of people in Britain have cut back on how much meat they eat**.
Campaigns like this week’s National Vegetarian Week, Meat Free Monday & Veganuary have promoted the benefits and raised awareness of reducing your meat intake or encouraged people to go vegetarian.
Some people choose to give up meat for ethical reasons, some for health reasons and others in a bid to help the environment. A whopping 51% or more of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture***
This pasta dish is a perfect way to celebrate the days of spring and early summer.
Delicious, creamy risotto with mixed summer veg and Parmesan cheese shavings.
A healthier alternative to traditional ice cream & tastes good!
