Vegan Resources On and Off Campus

Are you going vegan the first time? It is easier than you think. Here are some vegan resources to help make your transition successful!

Recipes created by Cécile’s Untamed Kitchen especially for QVP pledge

Easy and Delicious Veggie-Bowls

1. Vegan Nutrition

For a basic introduction to vegan nutrition, we recommend the books / website of Marina Vesanto: https://becomingvegan.ca/ Or you can watch her recent presentation at the ABC’s of vegan nutrition at Montreal’s vegan festival here:

2. Vegan Food on campus

Thanks to the diligent investigation and generous sharing of Allie Fenwick, here’s a helpful guide to vegan food on campus.

Vegan options on campus are increasing! Queen’s Hospitality Services have put together a useful list of vegan options available at various on-campus food locations. 

3. Vegan Food off campus

Kingston Vegetarian Network has put together an extensive guide for vegan options in Kingston which you can find here.

 

4. Cook it yourself!

Okay, you know how to cook. But you don’t know how to substitute the meat and dairy? We have put together a long list of meat and dairy substitutes for you, and where to find them in Kingston! The full list can be found at the bottom of this page. Now you can make your meatball spaghetti, sausage roll, chicken sandwich, or smoothie just the way you like it.

If you are not used to cooking, try and explore the fun of it! There are millions of recipes out there. It’s hard to catch up these days especially when there are apps like Yummly. There’s always something that suits your budget, time, and taste!

5. Catering for your guests

Serving coffee for your guests? We recommend great non-dairy milk options such as Silk Almondmilk, Almond Breeze and So delicious Dairy Free Creamer. They are available at most local stores.

For vegan catering, check out Eat Lover Vegan, Black Cat Bakery, Windmills, Desert Lake Gardens, Old Farm, AliBaba, Stone City Ales, Sally’s Roti Shop, Cecile’s Untamed Kitchen,  Knifey&Spooney and Pan Chanc Cho.

6. Other resources on vegan living

A lot of snacks and our guilty pleasures are, surprisingly and accidentally, vegan. Check this out. Barnivore can help you select vegan beer and wine. Eating vegan is of course only one dimension of vegan living. We encourage you to explore other dimensions as well.

7. Share you ideas with us and connect!

Take pictures of your vegan meals and groceries, and share them with us via Instagram and Facebook. Hashtag #QVP!

Connect with other vegans on campus and in Kingston! Queen’s Vegans and Vegetarians and KingstonVegNetwork get together regularly to enjoy vegan food and company!
