The environmental Christmas Tree tradition is growing

ere have been great discussions this year as people become more environmentally conscious around the Christmas tree tradition. What is better for the planet – artificial or real?

Warming vegan cottage pie recipe

Many of us have grown up with a menu heavily influenced by animal produce. Now there is such a variety of meat substitutes we are able to eat the same meals either as a vegetarian or a vegan.

We make efforts to change the way we think about food, both where it comes from and how it's produced. If you can still feel like you're eating what you want to, or what you're used to, its much easier to enjoy a diet with reduced animal produce.
