try soya bacon ( even in a bacon butty!) and then see if if you like real bacon better still. Soya bacon is the best stuff I have ever eaten, bacon, or otherwise, for food. Its great. I am not that wild about all soya products, but the bacon! That is great stuff.
Sleepyhead: depending where you live there should be a shop in your area that will seel vegan food. Normally in some kind of co-operative like 'Unicorn' or in generic 'health food' or vegetarian grocers'. You might find it easy to just bake a vegan cake, it really is very easy and cheaper than buying one. I would reccomend:
Moskowitz, I (2007) Vegan with a Vengeance: Over 150 Delicious, Cheap, Animal-free Recipes
Moskowitz, I & T, Hope (2008) Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World: 75 Dairy-free Recipes for Cupcakes That Rule
Dieterly, L (2003) Sinfully Vegan: Over 140 Decadent Desserts to Satisfy Every Vegan's Sweet Tooth
Failing that, just do a websearch for a recipe - it will be easy to follow. The alternatives to milk and eggs are easy to get in any supermarket and cheap too.
Hi Chris, that's great, thanks so much. I went into Unicorn (I live on the same road) and all the bakeries they are supplied by are only vegetarian not vegan (they're a vegan grocer!) which is pants. 8th Day said the cakes aren't big enough for 20, so I'll try zedz I'm sure there must be someone I can order from...
I've cut out take out coffees altogether, and have been saving around £100 a month! I can't believe how much I used to spend on coffees. It's utterly ridiculous. That's been a huge saving. I've also started buying 'value' everything at the supermarket. Value biscuits/cookies are actually well nice. I've become vegetarian as well, which has saved loads. I make alot of stews/casseroles in bulk and then store them in the fridge/freezer. I can't tell you how much money (and time!) I've saved with the changes I've made!
I don't spend a single penny when I'm at uni. I bring in sandwiches, fruit and a flask of coffee. I used to spend at least £10/day and didn't even realise I was doing it. I have a friend who spends £20/day on coffee alone, and he doesn't even finish drinking them! Oh god, I sound like a right scrooge. Feel like my dad who used to whinge about us leaving the lights on around the house!!!
