I’m very excited to introduce you to the lovely Rachel Warrillow who owns the fabulous vegan millinery that is Warrillow Studios. Enjoy!  How did your vegan journey start? It first started on Facebook, when I saw a really upsetting post; I can still picture it now. The same day I decided to give up meat, and became pescatarian. I started to feel a bit better about myself, lighter almost, and didn’t miss meat in the slightest, but my eyes had been opened… The more I learned, the less I wanted to eat animal products. I think I was slightly resistant… View Post

Do you have a goals list? I’m sure you do. I’ve always had a list of things I want to achieve, in fact, ever since I was a nipper I’ve been obsessed with lists…lists about lists…. Mr Green V will vouch that there are notebooks and post-its all around my desk, although I am trying to be a bit more digital, especially with my increasing travel. Anyway, I digress. Ever since I started out in my journey as a writer/editor/journalist I’ve always wanted my own column. Of course my blog is my special space to write whatever I wish, but… View Post

So last year, before I merged my old blog Coffee and Vegan Croissants with The Green V I ran a little inspiring interview series with female entrepreneurs I’d met online and in person and I’m super excited to be starting this up again. As an entrepreneur/solopreneur/home-worker it can often get overwhelming, and the people who understand it the best, as with many things, are those that experience this type of working lifestyle too. On that note, I’m pleased to introduce to you the lovely, talent artist that is Kathy Fearn-Webster!   Hi Kathy! Tell us about yourself. Hey there, I’m… View Post

The lovely Maria Mekhael is back with part 2 of her healthy nutrition guide for vegans. Missed part 1? Then catch up here. Grab a cup of peppermint tea, get cosy and enjoy!   What are the best sources of protein for vegans? Legumes and pulses are an obvious source of plant protein for vegans (peas, beans, lentils, chickpeas) but you can also get protein from nuts and seeds (almonds, chia, hempseed), and wholegrains (such as quinoa, buckwheat, wholewheat bread), as well as soy and products such as quorn and seitan. There are also lots of great vegan protein powders on the market… View Post

Hello kitty cats! I’m here with a bit of a treat for you! I want to introduce you to two lovely people who are taking the vegan food scene in London by storm. Seriously, I can’t put into words how much I want to move to London right now!  Rachel and Neil are the wonders behind The Vurger Co, and I’m proud to say we’ve collaborated to bring you the story behind the vurgers. Note, if you’re hungry, I suggest grabbing a snack now, because by the time you’ve seen what delicious delicacies are on offer, your mouth will be… View Post

Hello folks! Welcome to the second interview in The Green V Entrepreneur Series! Today we’ll be chatting to Aidan Lee, owner of FitRoots – a premium personal training business, and boy oh boy does he know his stuff! Aidan and I worked together earlier this year, and he made such a difference to my mindset, relationship with food, exercise and general wellbeing and I’ve seen a complete transformation in how I think I feel. So, let’s get stuck in!   How did your Vegan journey start? My Vegan journey began around 4 years ago, when I was around 20-21 years old.… View Post

I’ve had such a fantastic response from all you lovely folk about the directory, which I have to say has made me smile from ear to ear! I’d like to share with you a short video that introduces The Green V Lifestyle Directory in what I hope is a fun, attractive and time-efficient way! It would be fantastic if you could share it with anyone who you think would be interested in the directory, as I really want it to cover as many countries as possible – so it can help as many people as possible. The kind of businesses… View Post

My vision is to provide a service that vegans, vegetarians, yogis, lightworkers, spiritual people and other followers of a holistic lifestyle, where wellbeing is important to them, can basically land in a town or city and be able to find out where to eat, where to buy cruelty-free cosmetics, grab a green juice, where to get quality, non-leather, non-fur fashion, where to go to enjoy a wonderful yoga experience or… View Post

Perhaps you know, perhaps you don’t – but in addition to my blog and copywriting business I also run an online vegan magazine, TheGreenV.com  and I’ve just launched an apparel store as part of The Green V family. With 30% of profits donated to a different animal charity each month, it’s the ideal way to treat yourself to some new clothes and know that you’re also helping a great cause. This month’s chosen charity is the Dr Hadwen’s Trust; the UK’s leading non-animal medical research charity and I’ve been following them for a wee while now. I warmly invite you to… View Post
