Heather Mills is picking up the pace on development of her new vegan eatery in the UK — and apparently, the little seaside cafe will be called V-Bites. (Ahh, the haters should have fun with that one.)
According to Mills, however, the restaurant will be more than just “really funky, with nice music and ambience and good staff.” It will also be something of an education center. From the article,
Ms Mills said that each room would have a different feel to it, with one turned into a family creche area where children can play with interactive screens which will teach them about different fruits and vegetables and a dining area which will serve a daily selection of vegan dishes from around the world. The menu will be affordable and visitors to the nearby park will also be able to buy vegan burgers from a serving hatch. She said: “I think the food is really going to surprise everyone. Most people’s diet is 70% vegan anyway, as they eat rice, pasta and bread, but they just don’t associate the two. What is going to shock people most is the meat replacements. I have been working on them for seven years and they have a real meat taste.”
According to the article, Heather is also looking to franchise the business worldwide — something we definitely wouldn’t mind seeing next to all the Burger Kings and McDonalds out there. She said: “We are not going to change the world with just one restaurant. What many people don’t realise is that the biggest contribution to global warming is the production of meat and dairy. I am not telling people to stop eating meat and dairy altogether. I’m just saying come and try it one day a week, have a nice meal and do your bit for the environment.”
Good luck, Heather!
