Nadiya Hussain Is Vegan?
Celebrity baker and Bake Off star, Nadiya Hussain had an epiphany this year when she featured on BBC’s Good food show. The word is out and the rumors seem to have settled asking if Nadiya Hussain is vegan. The baker herself revealed that while she and her family aren’t full time vegan, but they are trying to stay off meat during weekdays and indulge only on weekends. She has been quoted as saying, “We still enjoy eating meat, but the experience has made me realize we eat more than we need. As a compromise, we decided to eat vegetarian meals during the week and only eat meat over the weekend. That way, we have more balanced diets.”

Nadiya Hussain threw a challenge at her family- to live sans meat for two full weeks. The experience made them cut cow’s milk completely and now they only drink soy milk.
Speaking about her experience as a vegan, Nadiya explained initially she did feel a bit restricted in her options whenever she wanted to prepare a fresh meal for her family. However, the experience has encouraged her to find better vegan alternatives to everyday foods.
In her column Nadiya elaborates more on the experience. She writes, “We found that we could still eat most of our favorite meals, including lentil curries with flatbread and mushroom bhaji, and Bolognese made with soy mince. The whole family was eating more vegetables and pulses, and felt full of energy.”
Earlier this year, there were reports that the vegan trend has quadrupled in a span of just five years, from 2012 to 2017 (on the basis of Google Search). There has been an unexpected exponential increase of 987% for meat free food demands since 2017. Looks like it isn’t just Nadiya going vegan way.
