Thankfully so many athletes are coming out and stating how healthier and fitter they feel after switching to a vegan diet.

MOMA – Making Oats more Awesome!

For whoever has never taken oats for breakfast (or as a snack), oats are incredibly nutritious. It’s always a good idea to start the day with a bowl of oats (and maybe add some fresh fruit). Some actually consider it as one of the healthiest foods you can take. Oats are rich in dietary fibre (containing more than other grains) and protein. They are also attributed with having a range of healthy cholesterol-lowering properties....

Sotelli Kingdom of Taste – gluten free pasta

Veggy Malta has a look at Sotelli, a gluten free pasta brand that is making great inroads on the island. Sotelli pasta is made from corn and is gluten free, vegan and also GMO free.

A drop of sweetness with Diete.Tic

Valsoia’s new Coconut Almond and Walnut drinks

VeggyMalta tried out Valsoia’s new non-dairy drinks. We have two new non-dairy drinks to try out. The Valsoia Coconut Almond and the Valsoia Walnut.

Veggy Malta tries out Amy’s Kitchen vegetable lasagne. Another of Amy’s Kitchen products that are suitable for vegans and people intolerant to gluten. This is another easy to prepare product by Amy’s Kitchen like the Chinese noodles. All you need to do here is heat and eat.
