Volitaire in Bangor, Gwynedd is refusing the new notes “as a stand against using animal products in our everyday necessary products”. .
The restaurant announced its decision on Facebook, thanking customers who supported the motion.
The post read: “Most of you will be aware of the current issues in relation to the new £5 note. “We have decided not to accept the notes here at Voltaire a a stand against using animal products in our everyday necessary products.
. “Thank you to all our wonderful customers who have been so supportive in our decision. We do hope that this does not cause too much inconvenience.” But one Facebook user asked what the restaurant will do when the old £5 notes are withdrawn from circulation next year.
Its reply was: “Hopefully they will make new ones without the animal product. “If we don’t object now then these kind of things continue on and on.” It added it would only accept notes which do not contain animal fats. .
Just last month furious vegetarians launched a petition calling on the Bank of England to shelve the new £5 notes after it emerged they contain traces of animal fat. .
The Bank of England confirmed on twitter the crisp new notes contain traces of tallow - a substance made form animal fat often used in the production of candles and soap. .
The revelation came to light after a member of the public tweeted: “Is it true the new £5 notes contain tallow?” The Bank of England wrote back and said: “There is a trace of tallow in the polymer pellets used in the base substrate of the polymer £5 notes.” The ‘Remove tallow from bank notes’ petition, read: “The new £5 notes contain animal fat in the form of tallow. “This is unacceptable to millions of vegans & vegetarians in the UK. .
We demand that you cease to use animal products in the production of currency that we have to use.”

“Give me the chocolate and nobody get’s hurt”
Chocolate brownie with a peanutbutter caramel..
We make two layers of chocolate brownie batter and a salty peanutbutter caramel for in between. And we save some caramel for on top. There is never enough caramel!! 😊 Serve it with crushed cashews. And if you like some ‘VA VA VOOM’ top it of with edible flowers, the chef loves to use east indian cherry flowers.
This is a typical recipe from Mallorca, the island where I’ve grown and currently live. It’s called “coca de trempó”, the translation is flatbread with vegetables, dull as it may seem, it is delicious. This is my take on the traditional recipe, but it’s not the best I’ve ever tried, so you can also look some more recipes online❤️
For the “bread”
450g of flour (3 cups)
15g of fresh yeast (0.5 oz)
1 tbsp of brown sugar
200ml of lukewarm water (3/4 cup)
100ml of olive oil (1/2 cup)
1 tbsp of salt
For the “topping”
1kg of red bell peppers
4 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp of chopper parsley
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of sweet paprika
First, roast the whole peppers and diced onions and tomatoes on a baking tray with a splash of oil at 180º C until they are tender and roasted.
We leave them to cool down and before they get cold we peel them.
Then, “dissolve” the fresh yeast in 50 ml of water and add 1 tablespoon of flour and another one of sugar. Mix it thoroughly and let it sit near a source of heat until you can see the mixture has at least tripled its volume.
While the yeast is resting, cut the peppers into strips and mix them with the tomatoes, onions, parsley, paprika, olive oil and the finely chopped garlic cloves.
Add the salt, oil, yeast and the rest of the water and flour slowly to the yeast mixture. Knead until the dough stops sticking to your fingers.
Extend it with the help of a rolling pin and place it on a previously oiled baking sheet.
On the dough, spread the peppers, and leave some of the juice that they released apart.
Bake at 180ºC for 35 minutes, until we see that the dough is dry below and the edges are golden.
Before serving, pour the juice over it.
It may look complicated, but it is pretty easy to make and really reaaaaally good💛🌱
for lunch today I went to This and That In Norther Quarter. I got 3 veg curries and rice for £3.90 but also got a samosa and a naan with it and it came to under £6!! So tasty and so good deffo gonna be a food coma for the rest of the day
Everyone remembers trying to find the M&S ‘Baileys’ style drink last year don’t they?! Well it appears to be back and it’s bought along a little Pina Colada shaped friend with it! I’m not much of a drinker and although £12 for the big bottle isn’t a bad price, I won’t be rushing to buy it as I wouldn’t want to waste it. However, if they drop the price to £5 again like last year then I’d be tempted to try it I think #veganchristmasvibes#hohoho

" All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love Life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt ? What harm can you do ?" ~ Buddha
My reasons for Veganism are more than one, but most importantly it is to stop the violence and the ill-treatment towards the animals and any other living creature, who deserve to live as much as we humans do. .
I have been there and done that and honestly I so regret for not embracing Veganism earlier in my life, because plant based food has so many health benefits and it's cruelty free. .
Our body doesn't need to drink the breast milk of other animals which are meant for their offsprings. Cattle farming and livestock production has the most hazardous impact on our environment. Then why do we still consume it ? Just for taste ? Atleast I did, until I became aware. .
My posts like these ones would always be intended to raise awareness and not to persuade you to become a vegan. But my only request to you would be to be well informed and be mindful of the source of the food on your plate. That's it. .
Do you think, awareness is what would really make a difference in the way we consume ? Share your Vegan journey with us using the above hashtag.

PUMPKIN PROTEIN CHIA PUDDING 🎃 🎃 🎃
(v, df, nf, gf, paleo, low carb & RSF)
Pumpkin is super yummy, super healthy, & super versatile! On my website (link in profile), I’ve got this amazing fall fruit in recipes for everything from soup, smoothies, lattes, and baking (muffins, cookies, brownies and donuts) to protein balls, oats, and chia pudding!
Pumpkin is packed with fibre and vitamins & minerals such as A and C, magnesium and potassium. It is also rich in powerful antioxidants that have anti-aging benefits for the eyes and skin and may help to protect against cancer, hypertension and heart disease.
For this chia pudding, you can use homemade or canned pumpkin purée. The homemade stuff is actually very easy to make and I have provided directions OTB. If using canned, be sure to get pure pumpkin and not pie filling, which is full of processed sugar. In Toronto, I have purchased organic purée from @summerhillmkt @pusaterisfoods & @wholefoodsont 👌🏼.
See website Food Joy page for recipe deets, but here are the ingredients:
Chia seeds + unsweetened almond or nut-free milk + @wholefoodsont canned organic coconut milk + pure pumpkin purée + @nuzest_usa vegan vanilla protein powder (CODE “DrTara15” to save plus products are ON SALE!) + @organikahealth maca (optional) + pure vanilla extract + ground cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, nutmeg & black pepper + optional pure maple syrup, raw honey (nonvegan) or stevia to sweeten as desired.
Topped with pumpkin seeds + @giddyyoyo raw cacao nibs + @bluemonkeydrinks chocolate coconut chips.
Quinoa- Gemüse Pfanne😋🤗🌻🌱
Manchmal "vergesse" ich Quinoa, was eigentlich sehr schade ist denn er ist vielseitig und super lecker! Hier seht ihr ihn zusammen mit grünen Bohnen, Kichererbsen, Zwiebeln und Paprika. Die gesamte Pfanne habe ich ordentlich gewürzt mit Salz und Pfeffer, Paprikapulver, Thymian, Majoran, etwas Kreuzkümmel, Chili Flocken und Muskat. Dazu gab es noch einen Sojajoghurt Knoblauch Dip
Quinoa- Vegetables Pan😋🤗🌻🌱 Sometimes I "forget" about Quinoa, which is actually a pity because it is versatile and super tasty! Here you can see it together with green beans, chickpeas, onions and peppers. I spiced the whole pan with salt and pepper, paprika powder, thyme, marjoran, some cumin, chili flakes and nutmeg. I also served a soy yoghurt garlic dip
