English County of Cornwall Catches Up With the Vegan Lifestyle

Veganism is becoming more and more popular all around the globe. It’s especially interesting to see that the rise of this dietary lifestyle isn’t just limited to the world’s biggest cities and trendiest locations. Even in relatively quiet or little-known places, people are starting to catch up with this idea and make new decisions about their lives. The exclusively plant-based diet has even arrived in the beautiful county in the southwest of England: Cornwall. Cornish people seem quite excited about adopting this diet and it’s exciting to see that people from all walks of life are joining up with veganism in the modern era.

There are many different reasons for people to test out a vegan diet. Every day, we can see more and more celebrities and famous faces announcing that they have signed up with veganism, while health professionals and doctors continue to recommend this style of living. Veganism is able to offer a myriad of health benefits, helping countless people to lose weight and look their best. At the same time, it’s also a great lifestyle choice for people who want to minimize their impact on the environment or those of us who prefer to avoid participating in the slaughter of animals for meat. Some people even adopt veganism because of their religious beliefs.

Environmental concerns are becoming a more important topic in the modern world, with several high-profile events having recently taken place to encourage people to do their part to stay green. This sort of thing has undoubtedly influenced the rise of veganism in places like Cornwall, where vegan shops and restaurants are beginning to become a more common sight. The menus of cafes in the region are slowly filling up with vegan-friendly options and supermarkets are offering wider varieties of food for people who feed exclusively on plants.

Just recently, the Cornwall Vegan Festival was held in the region. Hundreds of people were in attendance and enjoyed learning more about the vegan lifestyle. The popularity of the event was very encouraging for vegan enthusiasts in the area and suggests that this dietary style has a bright future ahead of it. An organizer of the event, Joannie Musket, revealed that the queues for the event were impressively long and claimed that high-profile celebrities have played an important role in the current popularity for all things vegan-related. She added that the benefits of a vegan diet are numerous and varied, suggesting that most vegans wish they had tried cutting out animal products even earlier in life.

Businessmen and entrepreneurs are also getting involved with the rise of veganism. Graeme Holland, an exhibitor at the festival, just recently launched his own company preparing vegan smoothies and soups. Holland has studied nutrition in the past and hopes he can help people to get the nutrients they need while living animal-friendly lifestyles. Evidently, vegan diets are becoming more common and it’s encouraging to see so much investment and interest in veganism all around the world.

    Even in Cornwall!! Actually Cornwall is a rather unique county; whilst it has a large farming community (it is very rural and only has 700,000 people) who would never understand the concept of veganism, it also draws many 'alternative' people - artists, writers, many different people who find that its unique lifestyle and laidback way of life are the perfect step off from the 21st century norm. We have many excellent vegan restaurants in Cornwall: Wildebeest in Falmouth, the Bean Inn near St Ives, Archie Browns in Penzance and Truro to name but a few. You can even eat a vegan mezze in a 13th century lodge on top of a carn (hill) at Carn Brea castle. So whilst we may seem to be stuck in 1950 (which is by no means a bad thing) vegan foodwise Cornwall is leading the way in the UK. Add to that its amazing beaches and coastline, wildlife and scenic walks, Cornwall is the best place to live in the world!
