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.
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!
Trondheim is a city I have always wanted to visit. It's the capital of the north of Norway and home to the awesome Nidaros cathedral, amazing jazz festivals, the wharves, and charming Bakklandet. Trondheim is full of students, technology, cycling, music and food. This makes it a super vibrant city, and exploring it as a vegan is way easier than you might expect. From pizza restaurants (yes with vegan cheese on the pizzas) to sushi places to 100% vegan cafes, Trondheim has everything my little vegan heart could possibly want.
I was over the moon when I was asked to come to Trondheim to hold a talk at Trondheim Vegan Fair by Emma Jarvis, the festivals organiser. It's an annual event which attracts a lot of people. As well as a bunch of interesting stalls they also have talks, workshops, a fashion show, various cooking courses, a cinema zone and loads of activities for children. It caters to everyone basically!
