    I'm with dropscone - I sometimes buy things with cross-contamination warnings, because I don't consider that my custom is encouraging the use of animal products in those instances.

    Well done, Robin. Apart from anything else, it's great to have evidence that you can solve this problem while staying vegan, not that we doubted it of course ;)

    Re: Vegan in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

    That's good news Sarah. Akbar's sounds jolly nice. Some Italian ones can be ok too - Carluccio's have a vegan list - but I agree it's hit and miss.

  11. Re: Doctor says that I NEED to have some animal protein in my diet

    Good points from Robin. FWIW I used to have hormone problems that might have been pill-related and they seemed to resolve after I went vegan, but a sample of one doesn't tell you much :)
