Welcome to 2019! We think it’s going to a year where we find ourselves with even more vegan options to choose from in stores and restaurants, and we also have a sneaky suspicion that loads more people are going to start eating more plant based (and maybe even go vegan) this year too!
The new version of Vegan Norway is pretty cool, it has pictures in it! We have spent the past few months redesigning both the Android and iOS apps to accommodate images, figuring out how our servers would handle it, and embarking upon a mission to get not just any old pics but really beautiful photographs of every single place in the app.Find out how to get the new version here.
There are even more new places in the Vegan Norway app. In fact these past two months there has been so many places being added, some places that have sadly taken vegan items off their menu and some other places that have made a grand comeback that we decided to check the stats. We currently have exactly 729 places active in the app! 415 in Oslo, 127 in Bergen, 98 in Trondheim, and 89 in Stavanger.
You know when you are waiting for a bus for ages and then all of a sudden four of them come at once? Well, we have some good news for you. We are soon about to enjoy a windfall of new vegan products released to stores here in Norway. Not just any old products either... really amazing and highly anticipated ones. Read on to find out more about what they are, and when and where you can get them.
Thinking of trying out veganism? We know that it might seem like a massive scary change at first, but it gets easy really fast, and in fact by the time you get to your third week as a vegan you will probably find that the lifestyle feels mostly effortless to continue. It's a bit difficult to know how exactly to start with going vegan so we thought we would write a guide to help make those first few weeks of trying out veganism in Norway so much easier. At the end of the three weeks you might not know all the little tips and things that someone who has been vegan for many years does but you will definitely be over the hardest part and know more than enough to stay vegan if that's what you want.
For the past few months we have been working on adding some pretty big features to the app, one of which is tags, and the other is images!
It's that time again. Time to wrap up warm, eat more than you care to admit, and make small talk with people who you only see once a year. It's christmas my dudes! If this is your first christmas as a vegan you might be getting a little FOMO when you think about all the totally not vegan christmas traditions you would usually do. Don't worry though, you don't have to miss out AT ALL. We recommend a festive weekend in Oslo in which you can go out and eat a lovely vegan christmas lunch, do a little vegan grocery shopping and even get some gifts for your friends and family.
Vitamin B12 is required for the proper function and development of the brain, nerves, blood cells, and many other parts of the body. The only natural places it can be found in good enough quantities are foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products, that's why vegans and vegetarians must take it as a supplement.
B12 helps your body in so many ways so please put some time aside in your morning routine to down your pill with your morning coffee, orange juice and toast.
