Green From Ear To Ear

Words by Samantha Harman

Research shows that cutting down on meat at last one day a week can significantly reduce cholesterol, which lowers the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. 

You can also expect to decrease the chances of developing certain cancers, kidney disease, liver disease and lung disease. Following a plant-based diet isn’t the same as it used to be, vegetarian and vegan cuisine has come a long way since the days of lentils and mung beans and we are fortunate enough to live in a city that caters for the many non-meat eaters who reside here. Also broadly speaking, plant-based proteins generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions and use less water and less land when compared with animal-based protein production. So the benefits are not only bodily, but also environmental. With this in mind, why not step out and enjoy a meal cooked for you by one of our recommended restaurants? 

Award winning Terre à Terre was created in 1993, born from a shared passion of two people, Amanda Powley and Phillip Taylor, whose mission was to provide high-end vegetarian grub to the masses. Back then meat-free venues were a rarity, with most places offering unappetising vege options as an afterthought to their carnivorous menus. Almost 30 years later and it’s safe to say their mission was accomplished. Terre has stood the test of time and paved the way for other like minded establishments, but let’s never forget they are the original and possibly one of the best. The vodka injected baby tomato is a firm favourite of Discover, as are the hand shaken cocktails. This is the perfect romantic dinner venue, or a mate date. terreaterre.co.uk 

Food For Friends is another of Brighton’s original award-winning vegetarian and vegan restaurants, featured in ‘The Sunday Times’ Top Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurants and in ‘The Good Food Guide 2018’. Their ethos is tasty and honest, and they cook using fresh and consciously sourced produce. The relaxed and attentive atmosphere will ensure you will be welcomed as a guest, and they want you to leave as a friend. The establishment does have a relaxed high-end cafe vibe and is always busy. Make sure you book to avoid disappointment. foodforfriends.com
