Liz Day

I’m Liz and I’m a journalist, currently working in Cardiff. 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 vegetarian, 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. So if you’re looking for vegetarian news, reviews and recipes, you’re in the right place.

I welcome all comments and contributions, so please feel free to get in touch any time. Email: lizannday@gmail.com. Tweet: @thegreenveggie. Facebook: Thegreenveggie.    You can also find thegreenveggie on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest.

    • Hi Deri,

      Thank you very much. It’s early days, but I’m very excited about the whole project.

      I’d love to be a feature on your website and will happily donate a recipe. Would you like me to email it to you? If so, what’s your email address? Feel free to send me a direct message on Twitter if you’d like to keep it private.

      I’ve had a look at your website and am very interested in what you do. Maybe I could interview you sometime? Perhaps at the Riverside Market on Sunday, or maybe by phone one evening next week. Let me know what you think.


      • Hi Liz and Deri…
        Liz: I went to school with Deri,
        and Deri: Liz and I are friends from uni in Bristol. Small world eh?!

        Glad you two have got in touch with each other as I thought you had quite a lot of common ground in ethical vegiterianism.


        ps good website Liz!

  1. Hi Liz,

    Love your website and what you are doing! I am Celebrity Eco Chef Bryan Au I invented 200+ totally new raw organic vegetarian and vegan recipes that literally takes 5 or 10 minutes to make and is super healthy and delicious. There is no cooking so it is even faster, easier and healthier than anything out there yet they all look and taste cooked, deep fried and baked thanks to my new recipes and techniques! The title is RAW STAR Recipes: Organic Meals, Snacks & Desserts In 10 Minutes and it instantly became a TOP TEN Bestseller on Amazon.com reaching #8 and last week got officially Nominated for The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in their prestigious Vegetarian/Vegan Category which is grouped together. I would like people to experience and enjoy my recipes which are incredibly easy, amazing new techniques, super delicious and is good for people and the planet! I would like to send you a review copy and for everyone else they can buy it from Amazon.com in the UK the link is here:


    All the best in health,
    Eco Chef Bryan Au

    • Hello Bryan Au,

      Thank you for your comment. I’d love to review a copy of Raw Star Recipes. Sounds perfect for some New Year cooking inspiration. I’ll email you my address so you can send me a review copy. I look forward to reading it!

      Best wishes,


  2. Liz,
    I love the idea of veggie news, info, and debate. Jake at Play With My Food and Cadry at Cadry’s Kitchen (both wordpress blogs) are also great for well-written, intelligent contributions to the vegetarian/vegan conversation. I look forward to your next posting of veggie news and quotes. Best of luck!

  3. It all sounds good to me. I am happy to share a simple favourite of mine.
    It is a simple variation on hummus. I substitute lime juice for lemon and puree fire roasted red peppers and add them to the hummus. Serve with veggies to dunk it in or it can be a sandwich spread. Bon appetit!
