Berlin frenz, if we’re going to put on the quarantine fluff, might as well do it with delicious vegan food with the multiple take away Berlin options.
I’m assuming it’s no news to you that the virus Corona was born from the animal trade. COVID-19 is life-threatening but is also changing lives. Poor conditions for animals have in recent years caused a rise in diseases spreading from animals to humans, otherwise known as zoonotic diseases. With its origins in a wet meat market in China, my only hope now is that it’ll prompt some people to go vegan.
Stockholm’s vegan scene is rather small but definitely vibrant and varied. The one thing I found a bit strange is how most vegan places are only open for lunch, but there are a few places that offer dinner too, of course. I won’t bore you too much with an intro, but I just want to say that the vegan Stockholm scene has some of the best fast food and Asian food I’ve ever had, and a throng of cute little hipster cafes worth crashing for some healthy breakfast food and delicious coffee. I loved Stockholm and it’s made it to one of my favourite places in Europe for vegan food!
“Look at all the healthy food Berlin has!” Said no one ever.
I realised at some point that what I’ve been writing about Berlin, and not only but also including the vegan scene, has been totally hedonistic. Vegan burgers, all the fast food, clubbing naked and plain just getting naked. I’ve done a pretty decent job in my now five years in Berlin, I’d say. But Berlin is not just that, I promise you.
Although leather has been a vital material and resource for thousands of years, we now live in an era where cruelty-free alternatives are readily available — in this post, we’ll learn more about vegan leathers, veggie leather, or faux leather.
No matter what your stance is on veganism or the importance of cruelty-free practices, it’s impossible to argue that animal leather has not been an essential resource for humans going back as much as 7000 years. But this is 2021, and the technology and creative use of recycled materials have allowed us to seek and implement cruelty-free alternatives.
Today, I wanted to talk about my top 10 vegan Europe travel destinations for the year.
Europe is a magnet for travellers from all over the world, and for vegans, it definitely deserves the title of meat-free mecca continent-wide. The same is also true for travellers and those on vacation who just want to eat healthier, and do their bit for the environment and animal compassion. We don’t all have to tuck into steaks all the time, and you too can embark on a travel odyssey as part of your exploration of the mighty continent of the most vegan-friendly cities in Europe. Being a vegan in Europe is definitely easy!
I meant to write this Veganuary tips article a long time ago, but here I am, a few days before the new year and the beginning of Veganuary. Oops. If you’re taking the 30 day vegan challenge and going vegan this January for the now-famous Veganuary, congrats on this new beginning. You will never regret this.
If you loved Berlin for all its dishevelled and raw charm and have been told countless times “this ain’t the real Germany”, consider yourself in luck, as there is another little slice of imperfect paradise waiting to be discovered less than 200km away! Leipzig is neither the Germany these people are referring to — and you will love it. In fact, if you are not a big fan of big bustling cities, you may love Leipzig even more than Berlin. And vegan Leipzig is a treat to be discovered.
