IT’S VEGANUARY! January 10, 2017 14:29

Now in its fourth year, Veganuary is all about helping to make the transition to veganism as easy and enjoyable as possible as well as highlighting the benefits of a vegan diet, which includes reduced cholesterol, lower blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease all while getting the minerals and proteins you need. Whether you are just testing the waters with a new diet or are in early stages of a New Year’s resolution, the vegan community will be there to support you every step of the way.

To help you on your way on a journey to veganism, we’ve got a whole range of delicious foods for you to dig into. Our Vegetarian Pulled Chicken is the perfect substitute for newcomers to include a hearty bite to your dinner. Our iconic Vegetarian Sausages open up a world of recipes, we recommend trying with a portion of mashed potato, a side of green peas and a dollop of English mustard as a starting dish.

You can find all our vegan-friendly products here.

So what are you waiting for? For this month (and potentially onwards) get involved in the cause and enjoy a few wonderful vegan meals!

LINDA MCCARTNEY'S ON TOUR September 23, 2016 10:05

It’s that time of the year again when mums and dads wave goodbye to their kids and pack the car full of bags for their very first term at university. Freshers’ Week, to those in the know, is a period where our finest young brains settle into life on campus, make new friends and get their first taste of uni life. We’re going to be joining them at 14 universities up and down the country to make sure that first taste is a meat free one!

We will be sampling Linda McCartney products in our Linda tour van and giving away goodies. The first 25 people at each destination will get their hands on some exclusive ‘tour’ goods, as well as a branded bag packed with recipe cards, aprons and plenty more… so there’s no excuse to shy away from the kitchen!

We hope to encourage students to go back to their halls and student digs, and rustle up some delicious meat free meals with their new housemates.

You can follow all the action using #MeatFreeFeasts or follow us on Twitter @LindaFoods.

MEAT FREE MONDAY: WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT February 1, 2016 22:42

You don’t have to be vegetarian to give meat free eating a go now and again. There’s even a day for it! Meat Free Monday was an idea launched by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney in 2009.

The McCartney family want to encourage people to help slow climate change, preserve the earth’s natural resources and improve their health by making the small change of enjoying at least one meat free day every week.

There’s lots of ways you can try meat free eating; it doesn’t have to be complicated. There are some tasty recipes on the Meat Free Monday website www.meatfreemondays.com/recipes/ if you’re keen for a cooking adventure, or why not try one of our delicious meals – click the “Our Food” section to find your favourite. What could be better on a blustery February Monday than our warming Country Pie for supper? Or perhaps our moreish Red Onion and Rosemary Vegetarian Sausages with a heap of mashed potato?

Be part of something inspiring, join us on supporting Meat Free Monday. #MeatFreeMonday #InspiredbyLinda
