Jo, author of Salad or chips

I live in beautiful Shoreham-by-Sea, a stone’s throw from Brighton, the vegetarian and vegan capital of the UK. I created Salad or Chips to share tasty, nutritious and easy to follow plant-based recipes

I’m also proud to collaborate with Ethica Magazine as a recipes contributor.

I changed my diet thanks to my life-changing thyroid condition, although very annoying it was the catalyst for many positive changes. Becoming vegan in early 2014 is one of the most satisfying and empowering things I’ve ever done. There’s such an incredible change of pace taking place at the moment. There’s never been a better time to be vegan, and I want to share how delicious it can be.

Why Salad or Chips?

Salad or Chips started on Instagram before veganism became cool. It was my safe place to talk about food and my love of running. The increase in availability in shops, cafes, and restaurants is encouraging, but it has also created a vegan junk food trend. The availability of vegan mock meats and fast food is most excellent news for the animals, but we need to make sure that we are taking care of ourselves.

A nutritious plant-based diet is essential for our wellbeing so let’s make it taste good.
