It takes you less than ten minutes to prepare your Lazy Vegan ready meal. It is no hassle so you can be lazy and it leaves you all the time in the world to do what you love most. Vegan means our products do not contain animals or animal related ingredients. Cooking Lazy and Vegan makes us and hopefully you a Lazy Vegan.
Why is the brand called Lazy Vegan?
Is Lazy Vegan only for Vegans?
Lazy Vegan is for anyone looking for great food and wanting to eat less meat. We hope everyone becomes a Lazy Vegan, if only it is once a week. Then we all give ourselves (and the planet) a break.
Where can I buy Lazy Vegan?
In the UK Lazy Vegan is available at the bigger stores of Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Wholefoods, Planet Organic and As Nature Intended.
In NL Lazy Vegan is available at Jumbo in the bigger cities, at big Albert Heijn stores at Marqt and at Crisp.
In Denmark, you can find us at all the Irma stores.
What are Chicken Style Pieces?
These are chicken style protein-packed pieces made from the protein and fibre of fresh garden peas with a great taste and texture to boot. Our pieces are an ingredient in our meals and also available as stand-alone products to easily add protein to make any meal a complete nutritious vegan meal.
Why is there no soy in the Lazy Vegan products?
Not because we are ‘against soy’, as people sometimes assume. As far as we know there is no scientific evidence for the claim that using soy products could have a negative effect on your health. The myth that phytoestrogens in soy products could disrupt hormones and result in ‘man boobs’ turned out to be just that: a myth.
But isn’t soy production destroying the Amazon rainforest? Yes and no. The truth is, more than 90% of soy is produced for animal feed, with most of its nutritional value lost in conversion (which makes animal agriculture so inefficient). Eating soy directly (instead of meat and dairy) would in fact greatly reduce the amount of land needed to produce our food, making it possible to protect our remaining forests and freeing up land to be returned to natural forest.
The reason, then, why our meals are soy free is something else altogether: we just love pea-protein!
It has a great taste, an amazing bite and texture and results in a high protein meat substitute. This makes it the perfect ingredient for our ‘chicken-style’ pieces. So, no soy. Pretty unique!
What goes in to a Lazy Vegan meal?
Well, we start with what we leave out. We don’t use any animal ingredients in your meal, so no meat, no dairy, and no eggs. Not only this, it’s gluten-free; soy-free; and free from all 14 EU food allergens. Next to the Chunky Pulled Peaz made from the protein and fibre of fresh garden peas, our meals are full of fresh vegetables, tasty herbs and spices. Our vegetables are frozen straight after harvest, sealing in their vitamins and nutrients.
