When it comes to reducing one’s negative impact on our environment, there are few simpler lifestyle changes we can make than giving up beef and eating a more sustainable alternative instead.
At For Earth’s Sake, we have been really excited to have All Out Burgers in the chiller section for the past few months. Made locally from seitan (a wheat protein) these burgers have a meaty taste and texture that will make you wonder why you didn’t try them ages ago. Not only do they taste great and have a much lower environmental footprint than beef, they are also much more healthy than beef burgers. One patty contains a whopping 28g of plant protein, only 12g of fat, and ZERO cholesterol.
You can pick up 2 All Out Burgers for £4.00 in the shop or online (we deliver to GU1, GU2, GU3, GU4, GU5, GU6, GU7, GU8, RH4, RH5, RH12, RH13 & RH14).
We all have our favourite ingredients to go alongside (and on top of and underneath!) our burgers and at For Earth’s Sake we have you covered there as well with some delicious vegan sauces. Take your pick from this line up and check out the Sauces section of our Online Shop for even more options:
So Free Egg Free Mayo with Garlic £2.65
Inspired Vegan Hollandaise Sauce £2.35
Inspired Vegan Horseradish Sauce £2.35
Mr Organic Italian Ketchup £2.65
Tracklements Smoky Chilli Sauce £3.65
Tracklements Sticky BBQ Sauce £3.65
Tracklements Strong English Mustard £2.30
Homemade Greek Hummus £3.00
Personally, I usually go with this combination from bottom to top; hummus, green leaves (could be spinach, cabbage, rocket, or lettuce), sliced tomato, All Out Burger, sliced onions, BBQ sauce, then mustard). Finally, try and get yourself a wholemeal burger bun for that extra fibre!

A truly warming side-dish for four, and perfect with a baked potato and some veggie sausages or good pork sausages. For an extra zing grate some orange zest over just before serving. If cooled and kept in the fridge, this can be gently reheated in a small pan on the stove, stiring regularly.
Note: Our Nutritious Red Cabbage Salad is a great way of using up the remainder of a whole head of cabbage.
½ red cabbage, cored and cut into chunks (about 600g)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 eating apple, cored and sliced
1 tsp mixed spice
2 tbsp sugar (brown or muscovado preferably)
1 tbsp olive oil
50ml apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 160c.
Mx all the ingredients thoroughly in a casserole with a tight-fitting lid.
When the oven is up to heat, pop in the casserole with its lid. Cook for 1.5 hours, stirring two or three times at regular intervals. By the end of the cooking time all the ingredients should be cooked through and the flavours well combined.
Note: If using a whole head of cabbage double the remainder of the ingredients and increase the cooking time by 30 minutes.
