Have you heard of the Vegan Lifestyle Association? If so, then you already know that it's a fantastic organisation and your vegan friend for life! If you haven't heard of this fabulous organisation then let me tell you a little bit about it.
The Vegan Lifestyle Association (VLA) was founded by Chantal, who transferred to a vegan lifestyle early in 2013 and I have the honour of calling her my friend. As you all know I too transferred from a vegetarian to a vegan lifestyle on 1st January 2013, and I've not looked back since and I never will.
The Vegan Lifestyle Association is an absolutely fabulous, new and exciting organisation which promotes the many benefits of living a full vegan lifestyle and will help and support everyone who wants to try it. Their mission is to save lives and our planet and their vision is to inspire, inform and enable. Go check out the website for inspiration, information and a whole heap more.
The Vegan Lifestyle Association is a not-for-profit organisation and anyone can join from anywhere in the world. Its completely free to join as an associate member and any donations received are put towards campaigning, outreach work and publicity for veganism.
As an associate member you have access to member benefits including discounts on 100's of vegan foods, products and services.You'll also receive a monthly newsletter full of vegan news and features and chances to win fantastic prizes.
I am a Vegan Lifestyle Association Contributor, and you will find many of my recipes on their site. I also write an article called "Diggin' it" for their monthly magazine. The first issue of their magazine "VEGAN24" is now available to associates and I talk about preparing for Christmas! Yes Christmas! Now is the time to sow your parsnip seeds and the article tells you how and my top tips for a good crop.
One very cold Saturday in February I helped Chantal and Dave alongside Sian (another contributor and vegan blogger) on a stall to help with the launch of the VLA. Between us we managed to sign up over 100 new associates. So what are you waiting for? Head over there right now and sign up, it's free!
