It's National Veggie Month!

The month of March is Veggie Month at Animal Aid and we thought we’d share a little info about the initiative...

Veggie month is all about raising awareness on the benefits of reducing meat in your diet and upping your intake of fresh vegetables. It’s the perfect month to lighten up on your meat-heavy meals and get inspired with new recipes and flavours, without compromising on a substantial and delicious tasty treat!

For those thinking ‘I can’t possibly lose the meat in my meals’, try using a meaty alternative such as Quorn to top up your dishes. We have it on good authority from even the biggest meat-eaters that our 'meaty meals' Not Dogs are just as tasty despite the lack of meat! Going meat-free doesn't mean you have to miss out!

To find out more about Veggie Month head to Animal Aid’s website where you can discover even more benefits of going meat-free.

We can’t wait to celebrate Veggie Month in a bigger way next year, in our first Not Dogs restaurant!

Not Dogs Sausage Showcase: Top o' the Mornin' Dog!

Quorn Bratwurst with a fried egg, Heinz Ketchup and salted potato stix

Our first breakfast dog was introduced while we were set-up in a windy field in Cornwall, open 24 hours a day we knew we needed something to tempt the early risers. We quickly realised customers loved a good old fried egg any time of the day!

Our free-range eggs are cooked to order so whether it's sunny-side-up or over-easy... your wish is our command!

Not Dogs: Meat Free but Meaty!

One of the best things about Not Dogs, in our opinion, is that they are 'Meaty Dogs Without the Meat'! We love seeing the look of satisfaction on the face of a meat-eater when they take their first bite of a Not Dog and realise that even though we are 100% meat free (and always will be) we have managed to deliver them with an utterly delicious meaty treat. There is also always a vegetarian or vegan nearby too and we love the happiness it brings them to see that happen!

Our Not Dog has to be the meatiest meat free sausage around, and we’re very proud to serve vegetarians, vegans, meat-eaters and meat-reducers a menu that caters for all without sacrificing taste and the satisfaction you get from a fast-food treat. With a few added benefits we’re also bursting with pride about… Not Dogs is very kind to the environment, to animals and you!

Not Dogs

At a recent event in Oxford, we had a lovely gentleman approach us with a few friends who were excited about trying a Not Dog as they had been reducing their meat intake. He was very complimentary to us but he decided he would rather stick to eating meat. We always are very understanding of people’s eating choices, so we had no problem with this. After we explained the menu to everyone, he simply could not take his eyes of The Original Frank (see it on our menu here!) and decided (after a little nudge from his wife) to try it... we served up Not Dogs for everyone and happily they went. 15 minutes later this lovely man came back on his own to say “That was the best hot dog he had ever tasted”.

Vegetarian Fast Food

That was one of the best days to date, we live for moments like that! If we hadn’t had a big queue to serve right at that moment we would have been jumping with excitement!

Thank you to you, lovely meat-eating man, for giving us a try!

'Til next time…
