Birmingham Food Guide vegan

BAB ABOUT TOWN’S BIG BIRMINGHAM VEGAN GUIDE

Veganism is growing bigger every year especially at the start of the year where Carnivores are stuffed full of turkey, buffet leftovers and, so much booze they end up turning into a blooming brewery. Many like to start the new year with a cleanse and take part in Veganuary. Many stick with the vegan diet, or limit down their meat portions as they find their health has improved, they have done their research and don’t agree with the exploitation of animals, or maybe because January is a bleak month with nothing going on, so what else is there to do?!
I have so many people asking me about vegan restaurants in Birmingham, vegan brands in Brum and independent shops with a great variety of vegan products, It’s all about VEGAN baby and, I’m all for it. So, I thought I put a little guide together featuring some great businesses that sell/serve fantastic vegan products, food, and more in Birmingham and Beyond.
