  1. The point of vegan is to save animals! Don't worry about watching unhealthy food, I would live on seitan fried chicken and donuts if I could! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿค

  2. All the vegans are happy for you to join their world. I was vegan for over 3yrs and then it started affecting my health because deficiencies in b12, and I wasnโ€™t getting enough omega and iron but it could be because of my health issues and not having enough money to keep up.

  3. Slighty sad that you chose to showcase a very decidedly UNvegan pair of doc martens in this video, obviously I know you aren't actually vegan but it probably wasn't the best choice and a bit of a confusing message to send. Would be interesting to see you try and do a week with all vegan products like makeup, hair care and clothes!

  4. I think its very important people adress this topic. Veganism is nothing but commitment and enjoying whats fair to enjoy, not what isnt yours to take (from animals). Thanks for addressing the topic in such an entertaining and dinamic way, showing different options and how we can relate to veganism not neccessarily labeling ourselves as one. Personally, Ive been vegan for around 4 years now and Im so grateful I made that decision. Thank you again!

  5. i asked my dermatologist about the UV light thing for gel/shellac and she said to try to avoid it because it is UV light even though its only a little bit, but she said to just put some sunscreen on your hands before.

  6. I've been veggie ever since I was 14 years old (26 now) and love to "pig out"! people think that being veggie/vegan means getting thin and toned out of the blue…. I wish xD Loved the vlog! Indie is such a cutie

  7. Loooaaaaads of biscuits are vegan! Bourbons, Oreos, gingernuts, party rings, pink wafers, lotus, foxโ€™s dark chocolate chunk, Tesco dark choc digestives, hobnobs… I could go on! You donโ€™t need to splash out on the labelled stuff๐Ÿ˜‹

  8. I think about the same thing every time I get my nails done. Omg. My fd said that I m way too paranoid. I thought I was the only that would worry about things like that. There's once I put sun cream on my hands before going to the nails salon, but the lady who does my nails said that I shouldn't, coz the cream will affect the nails ? It would be difficult for them to put the colour on. I will have to wash off the cream. I reli wonder if this is a thing!

  9. Really cool video – maybe you could do the next one, but trying to make/have only the dishes that you normally love with meat/dairy but in a vegan version for a week? just an idea – love your videos <3

  10. Loved that you've shared this on your channel Sammie! I share lots of healthy vegan recipes and places to eat in London on my channel ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

  11. As someone who never thought they'd end up being vegan, I think the easiest way to try things out and play with cutting out animal products is just slowly substitute different groups- ie, start using alternatives to dairy, stop eating red meat, stop eating meat at home, etc etc and eventually you'll be there! But, remember, there's no pressure to be "perfect" or do everything at once! Do what feels comfortable for you and your body ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. This was an amazing video Sammy. Thank you for sharing and showing that being vegan (especially in London) is easy, affordable, no restrictive and actually very tasty. I think anyone can thrive on this diet and it's so good for your overall health (physical and mental), but also one of the most effective diet for the environment and for the animals, let's not forget that. I really appreciated the fact that you did it without going too much into details, just naturally and being positive about it. Being vegan (and I am not the only one saying that) is the best decision I've ever made. It's seriously the best! I am so glad you did that and I am please to hear that you will go vegan one day, I totally support that. I admire you so much for your open-mindset and being a genuine and compassionate person. <3

  13. There are a lot of accidentally vegan foods that you probably donโ€™t realise are vegan! Thereโ€™s a lot of things that I never realised were and would never have thought it until I became vegan! For example: chocolate chip hobnobs, Oreos, party rings, a lot of crisps and many many more! As well as many companies bringing out alternatives now ๐Ÿ™‚
    Any little change you can do is amazing though whether that be incorporating more vegan foods, being vegan one day a week or anything you can do!xxx

  14. Have you heard of the website Sustainable Living? Everyone has been hyping up the company's products, because they use ethical sourced materials, and they use elements of acupuncture for the products they sell. It's an interesting concept I'd love to see you talk more on it! I'll link the store for you to check it out! https://sustainableliving.store/

  15. Love this video! I have also dabbled with the idea of going vegan! Also if youโ€™re worried about uv light go for a gel polish that can be cured in a LED light, itโ€™s only 60 second curing time and less damaging on the skin ๐Ÿ˜Š x

  16. I am a pescitarian and also love trying out vegan food. Loove almond milk! I am not that adventuries with food not gonna lie,but this is definitely something I would like to try out as well ๐Ÿ™ˆ Really enjoyed this Sammi xx

  17. I had the same thought about the UV light when getting my nails done and I always put sunscreen on my hands before now. Especially since the hands tend to be a dead giveaway with aging!

  18. I recommend watching 'Land of Hope and Glory' an insight into modern British farming and also Cowspiracy and What the Health on netflix to anyone who is thinking about veganism but can't take the plunge.

  19. I think it is so so cool that you went Vegan for a week! Absolutely amazing! One thing I would suggest if I may is that you buy free-range organic chicken for Jason?
    I absolutely understand that vegan or vegetarianism isn't for everyone, but if you are going to eat meat then I think it shouldn't be battery farm meat. If it doesn't say organic or free-range on it, then it's battery farmed.

    Also regarding the Happy Egg Co – they are owned by Noble Foods which runs the Big & Fresh brand of eggs which only allows hens an A4 piece of paper size of space and the hens are caged.

    I honestly do not mean this as a criticism – just thought I'd leave a comment in case you didn't know the above. If you did already, so sorry!

    I love your videos and think this Vegan Week is so awesome that you're using your platform to promote good things! Love it! xx

  20. The thing about shellac is true, you should wear sunscreen or finger less gloves before you go! Overtime it will age your hands, and my sister is an esthetician and she told me that women's neck and hands are the most neglected parts, therefore they age quicker!

  21. Im glad you showed that you were eating vegan donuts . Because some people thinks being vegan means always eating healthy and not having fun with food, but no you can have lots of yummy vegan cake . its nice to see you being happy about your week , i saw few peope on youtube trying vegan and just complain about it every time. But you didnt , you are always exicting about new things , i love it , your video was very interesting . And like you said in London It might be easier to find vegan food. like it is in paris. I live in a smaller town in France its wasnt easy to find veggie or vegan food , but for the past year we have new restaurant , new option and its good . When you are new in the veggie or vegan world , its seems quite hard at first , but you need to look more and try new things and try to cook also; you showed us quite a few things in your video so it gives more ideas to people. So i thinks it could be interesting to show us when you doing another vegan week or day . Love from France

  22. I tried to go vegan for a month and I failed in the first 3 days, I thought it would be a breeze because Iโ€™m not particularly fussed for meat, milk and eggs etc but I forgot how much I loved chocolate and was totally bummed because meals where easy but when it came to snacking or desserts I felt like I was really under pressure, also when Iโ€™d go for dinner with family or my partner, it would be the absolute worst! Especially because where I am from, not many vegan options.
    I really want try again but I think the only way to do it is to kind of gently throw yourself into it, try veggie then do vegan a few times a week and always try and plan meals ahead for sure!

  23. I'm not necessarily Vegan, but ever since I started feeling like I was becoming intolerant to Milk, I started cooking things from scratch and cutting things out. I have Gilbert's Syndrome (Liver Disorder) and found out I'm supposed to cut out Dairy, Processed Food, Sugar, Junk Food, Fried Food etc. I would have the worst stomach pains and be hurled over in pain. As I've said thought it was intolerance. Now I have Almond Milk, no stomach pains. I cook from scratch, still have the odd bit of Chocolate and I'm fine. 13 Pounds down so far since February and cutting calories.

  24. I really enjoyed this, Sam! Iโ€™ve been considering eating more vegan meals. Itโ€™s hard to do where I live and slightly expensive, but I enjoy the thought of feeling lighter and eating less meat. I like beans and nuts and other forms of protein and Iโ€™m already lactose intolerant so veganism may not be as difficult as I anticipated. ๐Ÿ˜…
