Building a vegan business has been an incredibly inspirational and insightful process. Over the past couple of years, we have met a myriad of vegan trailblazers in the food, fashion and lifestyle industries.
We caught up with Philipp to find out how he turned his vegan lifestyle and passion for cooking and design into one of the top vegan blogs in the UK with a following of over 130,000 across his social channels.
I kinda fell into it. I stopped smoking, didn't want to poison anymore and decided to do a detox. Then I researched the healthiest foods on the planet and more or less stumbled upon a vegan diet. So, it was for health reasons first and then I found out about the impact food has on our planet and animals and realised that a plant-based diet has so many benefits that I couldn't go back to eating animal products anymore.
The thing that surprised me the most was that I haven't had a cold or flu in over 5 years! Normally I would get sick at least once every, one and a half years. I feel my immune system is much stronger now.
I love my vegan pizza with home-made cashew cheese. I don't really have a favourite restaurant at moment, there are so many new ones opening and new vegan options coming out, I don't even know where to go and what to try first!
I quite like shopping around, but I do love the Muroexe trainers.
I find it amazing! Even Hugo Boss has vegan leather shoes now and many other brands are following. I do have a few shoes from vegan leather.
I have started another one already but I can't talk about it just yet.
Be open and try something new. Take your time, you don't have to be perfect from the first day, go at your own pace. Have fun! Food is there to be enjoyed.
