Inspired by a great suggestion by @lukeberman, we decided to go ahead with the theme of #dumpdairy.
It was a great chance to get that hashtag out there a bit more and support viva!
It was a rather busy hour and once again great fun.
Many fabulous recipes were suggested, fabulously illustrating the fact that you simply do not need Dairy products to have great food. It is possible to make what are traditionally dairy rich foods, out of Plant based ingredients! It shows the amazing creativity that vegans have.it really is impressive and something to be proud of. So…what’s your excuse not to #dumpdairy!?! Make the ethical choice today!
I am only including the recipes on the blog but please, catch up with the chat on twitter. Search through the tweets until you get to 30th January 2014. there you can follow conversations and pick up some great tips and advice.
