Huntley Hedworth

Meet the two great people who we are sponsoring to take the Veganuary challenge by adopting a vegan diet for January.   And we have a special offer for anyone else wanting to have a go.

We’ve had Stoptober when we all tried to give up smoking; we’ve had Movember when we all tried to grow moustaches (some of us more successfully than others); we now have Veganuary which invites us to go vegan for the of month of January.  After the excesses of the Christmas and New Year festivities, what better way to kick off 2017, helping to shift that excess weight,  get healthier and do a little bit to help make the world a cleaner and kinder place?

The Miller Green guide to leftovers: how to waste less and eat more

10 delicious ways to recycle your leftovers and reduce food waste .

If Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has taught us anything, it’s that we waste rather a lot of food:

“We live in a country where one third of the food we produce never gets eaten and the average household bins £700 worth of food a year.” (river cottage.net)

A rather shocking statistic, but one to which we’re probably all guilty of contributing. Armed with our council-issued compost bins, it’s easy to think that we’re doing our bit for the environment. However, we think that to really make a difference, we’ve got to be a bit more proactive.

4 delicious, vegan alternatives to avocado on toast

As the environmental and ethical credentials of this fashionable fruit come under scrutiny, we offer four delicious, vegan alternatives to avocado on toast that won’t cost the earth.

It’s delicious, its simple to prepare and it’s packed with goodness. Small wonder that avocado on toast has become such a staple on the menus of fashionable cafés and restaurants. But, as with many things which seem too good to be true, avo on toast really is too good to be true. There is a dark back story emerging about the production of avocados which should make us think twice about the amount we consume.

The cornershop vegan: how to get your protein without being pretentious

10 healthy vegan protein sources under £2 that you can buy in your local cornershop.

Good news! The number of vegans in Britain has risen more than 360 per cent over the past decade.

Nearly half (42 per cent) of these vegans are aged 15-34, a statistic that has piqued out interest at Miller Green. We think it no coincidence that the sociodemographic most in favour of giving up animal products is the younger generation.

Naturally, those with their whole lives ahead of them might give a bit more thought to both the bodies and the world they inhabit. They also tend to give a bit more thought to their pursestrings!

How to celebrate all the vegan Olympians at Rio 2016

As the 2016 Rio Olympics gets underway, what better time to celebrate those athletes who have chosen a vegan diet to help propel them to the top of their game?

You probably remember the news stories in 2013 following New Zealand vegan couple Alan Murray (68) and Janette Murray-Wakelin (64) as they ran a marathon every single day for a year around the continent of Australia powered by an entirely a raw vegan diet. While that was an extraordinary feat regardless of what they ate, more and more elite athletes are opting to exclude animal products from their diet.
