Issue 4 of Vegan Life magazine is probably my favourite one yet. It is crammed with amazing recipes that are admittedly more appealing to me than many of the previous ones, probably because they are for sweet things!
Some of the many recipes that caught my eye included hot cross buns, rocky road, chocolate fudge cake, chocolate fridge cake, fruity chocolate cake, almond butter fudge and pistachio cake with orange blossom flower water.
Issue 4 also features an interesting article on the benefits of watercress. I love reading about the nutritional benefits of food, and was pleased to learn that watercress is high in vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium and iron among others. There is also some evidence that watercress may help to prevent cancer due to its antioxidant and DNA preserving properties. Watercress also contains a compound called PEITC (phenylethyl isothiocyanate) which may have the ability to ‘turn off’ a signal in the body, starving breast cancer cells of essential blood and oxygen, thus suppressing their development.
The digital version of Vegan Life magazine has now been updated to be more interactive. Special features include swiping images to view them like a slideshow gallery and a 'touch here' icon that reveals more text or images, plus you can now scroll down a page to read a full article instead of having to touch to turn a page.
The next issue of Vegan Life magazine is due out very soon, and from now on it is going to be released monthly! You can subscribe to the paper version here and the digital version here.
