Vegan plus Indian shop in Zurich / Uster?

Hi There,

I was wondering if anyone knew where to get a (wide range) assortment of Vegan products?

I've looked in the supermarket (migros) but no luck there (just some tofu).

Also who can recommend me a nice Indian shop where they sell species?

Anywhere in around Zurich and Uster..or within 30 min from Monchaltorf?

Many thanks in advance

I also wanted to - occasionally - post / share some recipes on this forum. I think that's okay right?

Any "rules" how to post a recipe on this forum?

Re: Vegan plus Indian shop in Zurich / Uster?

search vegan and you will surely find many topics on this.

I think Alnatura line from Migros is good concerning Vegan items, note: some are not Vegan as Alnatura applies to many diets.

But the vegan symbol is on a good selection of products.

My best advice to you, search here, then attend the Vegan festivals in and around CH, the next one is in winterthur. Here you will find a WORLD of people and knowledge to further help.

also thanks for being Vegan. Great for the planet and animals.

I swear by these guys in Schmeide Wiedikon for ethnic produce. Cheap as chips for fruit and veg too, though the quality varies.

Sorry, can't help on the vegan front...

There is a little Indian shop in the old town of Rapperswil (which is about 19 minutes from you). Next time I am there I will get the actual shops name for you

Re: Vegan plus Indian shop in Zurich / Uster?

Hi guys, thank you all (heel hartelijk dank) for all the useful information.

Just to clarify, I'm not Vegan, because I don't like a "label" -in any way- put upon me (must be my Aquarius / rebel side )

I do however try to consume products free from dairy & meat. More accurate would be..products free from Animal AND human slavery / cruelty.

One can get a lot of sh*t the second one identifies oneself with a label / statement.
doesn't matter what that label / statement is.

Living Ireland was great in that way, no judgement from other people. The ones in your area accepted you for who you are even if that is "odd" or "different".
And if you don't agree with some else's standard /idea of lifestyle, you just let each other be and go your separate ways.

Having lived in Suriname (I was born and partially raised there) I experienced a different lifestyle regarding non-vegan food.

The chicken eggs - for example - came all from chickens who were free.
Only at night - they went in a kippenhok, what is the English word for that a chicken...house?
Anyways, so these chickens would come into our house and lay eggs in the fresh bedding in our cupboards - to great dismay of my mother :-)

For us it was a game, where could we find chicken eggs today?
Only the ones in the house would get eaten by the way.
The ones outside and or clearly in a nest would be left alone and the chickens would hatch those.

Also we had a few Cows / Calves roaming on the land, only to be put away at night.
I clearly remember, if we needed milk (the rest of the household that is, I never liked drinking milk anyways) - my mother or father would go outside with a small pan to milk a Cow, saying 'lets see if the Cow can spare us some milk'.
Sometimes there was no milk, because the Calf would have "finished" it.
And sometimes the Cow had some to spare.

Also fruit and vegetables were growing without any chemical sprays / weedkillers etc.
Our candy / snack after school was usually freshly picked fruit from our orchard, ranging from Mangoes, Papaya's, Passion fruit, Guava, Water Melons, Coconuts, Oranges, Sour-sop (zuurzak), Suriname Cherries etc. -depending what was in season.

Coming to Europe, that all changed of course.
I never had any notion of things like battery chicken eggs, and other animals raised in (inhumane) captivity.
No notion of sprayed / on-organic food, artificial and other chemicals in food.

Once you know all this and more, I can not go back to "unknowing".
And I also understand and know that good, healthy, organic and cruelty-free food is expensive - most of the time. A lot of people can't afford that.

That's why, having your own piece of land is really helpful. You take care of the earth and the earth will take care of you.

That is our goal, saving money, so that we can buy our own piece of land -possible somewhere in the Tropics, maybe even going back to Suriname and start our own food & cruelty free garden - based on the Permaculture design by Bill Mollison (my husband's Hero).

We would also like to give back to the community - where ever we end up settling down -providing the locals / community with plants, education, help set up sustainable energy and eco-toilets.

Wow, I soooo went of the track.
Sorry.
Anyways, that was a bit more about my background.
cheers all!

Re: Vegan plus Indian shop in Zurich / Uster?

Many products at Migros are vegan, but not labeled explicitly. The soy joghurt for example or the rice milk.
the store Eva's apples at Schauffhauerplatz is also vegan, most Reformhouses Egli also have many vegan products. Once you start searching you notice that there are quite a few. Additonally, many vegan restaurants are popping up, my fav being marktkueche near Bäckeranlage.
