Welcome to thegreenveggie

So, this is the first post on thegreenveggie. (Not theveggieblog, veggiegirl, vegout, or even veggiepanda – yes, apparently all those were already taken.) I feel I should say something profound. Inspiring. Insightful. But that would be asking an awful lot after a long, hard day, so instead I thought I’d start with a bit about the blog, where the idea came from and what I’ll be talking about.

Firstly, a bit about me. I turned veggie at the tender age of 13 after a traumatic incident at a French market finally persuaded me I wasn’t really a fan of killing and eating animals! I’d always questioned where meat came from, and was uneasy about the idea of rearing animals for food. Today, I’m veggie, not only due to animal rights issues, but also on environmental grounds.

I decided to start this blog because I love veggie cooking and am really interested in the environment, sustainable living and animal welfare. I know there are plenty of veggie blogs out there, but although I’ve been spoilt for choice when looking for recipe blogs, not many seem to address topical news and debate.

So if you’re looking for current veggie news and comment, as well as interviews, restaurant and product reviews and the odd recipe, you’re in the right place!

Veg out! Liz x

  1. Welcome, Liz! I’m looking forward to your blog. I am vegetarian, and I do mostly blog recipes, but I’m always looking for new sources of well researched information!
