Whilst it might seem like all we do is bake these days, we have been working on the app too! We have added a bunch of new places in Oslo recently and I think you might like to hear about a couple of them...
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.
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!
