over to you

Hi Readers, I remember starting out as a vegetarian and having to explain why I had changed to my meat eater friends and the feeling of being interrogated. I am now beginning my journey as a vegan, and vegetarian friends are now asking me questions about why I do not have honey or eggs from a neighbour. It is good to have debates around the dairy production and the effects on the animal, but please, my vegetarian friends, do not make me have to justify why I have chosen to start my vegan lifestyle. From one animal lover to another. Jo STAR LETTER PRIZE Am I a ‘proper’ grown up? I smiled until my cheeks hurt reading Jake Yapp’s article on making ginger beer. I have ordered all of the ingredients and as both my teenage daughters…

I am no expert, however, I realised I was turning into a junk food vegan and just woke up one morning feeling ‘I’ve got to go raw’. It’s funny how raw is in percentages — ‘I am 80 per cent raw’ or ‘100 per cent’, or another number usually above 70! And the higher the number, of course, the…

summertime drinks

With the rather damp Summer Solstice now behind us, sadly the long, light evenings start to get shorter as each day passes. Thankfully, to balance this, often the best of the weather is still to come. August and September still bring with them the promise of days spent beneath the golden glowing sun in the sky and evenings looking up at the stars. As the air warms up over the summer months, gardens, parks, beaches and swimming pools become our second homes. It’s the time to embrace everything the outdoors has to offer and enjoy relaxing moments in the sun with our family and friends. To accompany the summer sunshine, we’ve selected a range of light and refreshing drinks that embody the season. From beers and ciders made with juicy, tangy citrus…
