    I've been vegan for about two years now, and I'd say I feel like I get sick less often than before. I generally feel much better overall, although I think this is more likely down to a decrease in the amount of processed foods I eat, rather than specifically vegan.

    As others have said, if you're worried maybe keep a closer eye on what you're eating for a bit, to make sure you're getting a decent amount of nutrients.

    It seems like there have been some pretty brutal flus/sickness/viral shit going around this season though, pretty much everyone seems to have caught something, so maybe it's just a thing.

    Also, seems like they had already made their mind up before they even started. Not going to give it a fair go with that attitude!

    I've been talking to a bunch of people about being vegan recently, and the question that drives me bonkers is always "But, what do you eat for dinner?!" I mean, it's a difficult one to answer, as the possibilities are endless. I just want to ask, "well, what do you eat??" I didn't feel like it was a difficult transition for me, as I already did a lot of cooking & baking, so I guess the odd substitution becomes easier.

    Can second postcard teas. Super friendly, very knowledgeable, good range of prices. They often have tastings (Sat mornings, I think?) But will often make you something if you don't know what you're looking for. Everything I've had from them has been delicious.

    Have Workshop gone cashless?

    Not even close. I'd say the closest for texturing is probably bonsoy (soy) or rude health (almond). The taste is going to be pretty different though.

    On a related note, it looks like minor figures have started producing oat milk, anyone had a chance to try it?

    I haven't been there yet! We usually end up with pizzas at Purezza (I haven't tried Pizzaface yet, but I've heard they are awesome too) There's also a great vegan sushi place (Happy Maki) in Brighton too, if you're around for a bit.

    Oh my god that place is my favourite. Great coffee and the staff are awesome too, and there's a puppy! Perfect shop really.
