Great to meet you I’m Anna a London based blogger, thanks for visiting my blog Gimme Veg!
I’ve been meaning to start this blog for the longest time to share my experiences of finding vegetarian and vegan food in a variety of destinations during my travels – to save you time doing the same!
It was a trip to the creative country that is Ireland that finally spurred me into action. We stayed with the most amazing host in a wonderful B&B, he was a passionate foodie and was incredibly keen to point us in the direction of the best vegetarian friendly restaurants in town. It saved us so much time and stress on our holiday – I want to pay that kindness forward.
I’ve lost count of the times I’ve dragged my long suffering partner Ian, round various towns and cities searching for the perfect vegetarian and vegan friendly places to eat.
I’ve been a vegetarian for over 30 years and due to a recent gallbladder operation and quest for healthier/ethical living I’ve also been avoiding dairy and fatty foods.
I’ve watched vegetarian and vegan food choices come a long way over the years and there’s never been a better time to eat out, but we still face limited food choices in some locations.
I’ll share reviews, photos, location info and any other veggie and vegan treats I pick up on my travels.
I’ve also recently been exploring more sustainable ways of living and ethical products – I’m on a mission to cut down on plastic waste, organically grow fruit and veg on my balcony and reduce toxic products in our home.
This will be an exciting journey for me as I learn more about the world of blogging – I’ll even share my learnings along the way in case you’ve ever wanted to do the same.
Please do get involved and share your restaurant recommendations, questions and feedback in the comments sections.
