This thread is for light-hearted vegan top tips - no seriousness allowed ;):D.

I'll start by saying you can never have enough soy sauce in your cupboard.

And it's always best to cut up your debit card before entering a health food store... :p

Next?

Top Tip: When you have 4 bags of 'just in case' chickpeas in the cupboard, it's time to stop.

BOGOF offers when they are still there a year later uneaten, unloved, pass their sell-by and sat in the cupboard *sniff*
Seems they weren't such a 'bargain' after all.. ;)

When we were moving vegan-wards, the woman who for some reason married me quipped we'd soon be making food 'without any ingredients'.

Was this in a vegan hospital?:D

My top vegan tip would be as follows:

You have bought an item of food, and mid-way through eating it, vague doubts begin to arise that it may not in fact be vegan. (You had checked the wrapper but the 20+ ingredients were written in tiny letters in 20+ languages.) My tip is, before you check the ingredients again, swallow the mouthful you are eating. Nothing worse than spraying a mouthful of food out, especially when company is present.:eek:

Be careful when swimming in muesli. You might get caught by a strong currant and drown.

I thought Fiamma just misspelled hummous in the title. How wrong I was.

Top Tip: Always carry an Emergency Flapjack on your inside jacket pocket in case of surprise cake cravings.


(this sounds like I made it up, but I have actually done this, especially when I ws just starting out being vegan....xD)

Penhaligan - that is indeed a good tip :D Nakd bars would be good too.

I recently went to a family reunion, and my Dad and sister had been worrying about what I was going to eat and whether we'd have to nip out to pizza express. They came to the conclusion in the end that vegans never travel without emergency supplies, and rather embarrassingly, I proved them right by turning up with a box of hummous sandwiches. Ah well.

There's a rumour going round the internet that it's possible to get swine flu from tinned pork.

It could just be spam.

Make peace with the vegetables of your childhood nightmares: they will likely as not appear as the only vegan option at a social occasion. Mmm pickled beetroot.

...and Leedsveg, you'll be waiting a long time for any vegan in an ivory tower
(tortoiseshell more my thing)

Hi PS

Only metaphorical ivory towers so no animals injured during construction. No stairs either as residents are beamed in to the top of their respective towers, from planet Zarg.

To change the subject, can I ask how long you are in China for and what you are doing there? (Sorry if you've already answered this on the forum.)
