Hi,

 

I've never been to Pau so can't speak from personal experience but the Happy Cow website has 2 veggie/vegan friendly listings:

 

http://www.happycow.net/europe/france/pau/

 

Its a fairly big town, I think, so getting soya milk etc from supermarkets shouldn't be a problem. There are also 2 "BioCoops" (health food shops) in nearby Tarbes.

 

As for Paris; there are some excellent vegan restaurants:

 

http://www.happycow.net/europe/france/paris/

 

I recommend Maoz Falafel for a cheap, tasty snack and also the Gentle Gourmand Cafe (which has only recently opened but is run entirely by vegans and is excellent quality {also one of the few places that serves a vegan breakfast from 7am}).

 

You may also find my website useful:

 

www.vegan-france.com

 

 

Hope this helps and you have a great time!

Here is also the only vegan webshop in France (i am the owner) : http://unmondevegan.net/



If you have any question about Paris or France you can ask me
 
I have already placed on order for Vegan cheese(very expensive) that is manufactured in the UK
 
. I can recommend UMV as they do give friendly advise over the phone.

What differences can expect while in France?

 

For example, energy prices are relatively high there compared to the US.  What other unexpected things might I encounter? 

 

Is almond milk widely available?

I'm just back from California where there is so much choice for 'Vegs'. The price of fodd is   cheaper than in France.

 

You can't find any faux meats, vegan cheese in shops overhere. Almond milk is easy to find but very expensive. A big battle unless you want to eat grains and beans.

What part of France? I found faux meats and even faux cheeses at the co-op (health food store) of the city I lived in and the bigger city near it.

Well, it doesn't have to be food.  I am just curious as to differences in general.  When I was young, there were a lot of differences.  For example, the village I was in had no market.  You purchased your bread from the bread man who drove down the street once a week, meat was purchased at the butcher shop, and vegetables were purchased at the open air market.  There was a canal that went through the middle of town and women used to wash their clothes in it with a washboard.  No one had a clothes dryer.  This was a very long time ago, but I remember as a child thinking that they were about 30 years behind us at the time.  I am sure they are not now, but I just wondering.

Do you know the names of the biocoops in Tarbes?  I am hoping that I can find some places that will make fresh juice while you wait.  One of the restaurants in Pau appears to make juice, but I was hoping to find a juice bar.

 

Thanks

Yet another question...

 

We are juicing a lot.  Either I am going to take an inexpensive juicer with us or purchase one there.  Are they easy to find in the department stores?

Yep. And I haven't found any good french language vegetarian forum. So, in which country are you currently living ? Are you a member of the AVF or other groups ?

Actuellement je vis en Italie. Je ne fais partie d'aucun groupe ou association, par conviction personnelle j'ai décidé de partager mes recettes vegan parce que je voyais que sur le web les recettes qu'on proposait faisait trop appel à des "ingrédients" super élaborés trop industriel.Je suis végan par respect pour ma santé et celle des miens donc pas questions de manger de nouveaux des trucs préparés et chers par dessus le marché.C'est ma façon de lutter contre le consumisme. Bien entendu il y a en jeu mon respect pour la nature et les animaux.

C'est super si tu y arrives ! Est-ce plus facile en Italie qu'en France ?

Bon salut les végés francophones!

Je viens de trouver cette conversation qui date de qques années, mais je vais essayer de raviver l'intérêt des végés pour ce qui se passe en France en 2017...
J'habite la France (Parthenay en Nouvelle-Aquitaine, jadis Poitou-Charentes) depuis plus de 15 ans, et je peux vous assurer que les choses ont changé beaucoup depuis qques ans. Il y a mantenant un magasin Vegan online (Paris et Lyon) "Un Monde Vegan" où on peut acheter à peu près n'importe quoi pour aliments vegans. Ma femme et moi (vegans depuis 20 ans) ont besoin de ça, car nous habitons le bled (litteralement, parmi les champs) en France profonde, et nos voisins (tous français) sont des fermiers traditionnels (omnivores, peu de compréhension des végés). Mais un vegan peut survivre ici si on est malin: on peut trouver fromage vegan (écossais, Bute Island), remplacements végé pour toutes sortes d'aliment, et des fruits et légumes super!
Bon, je termine là. Si ça vous intéresse, je veux bien vous tenir au courant.
Salut!

Peter (je suis écossais d'origine)

Vous avez entendu parler de "vegeweb.org"? Sinon, ça vaut la peine d'y jeter un coup d'oeil: il y a plein de vegan(e)s et vegetarien(ne)s qui en sont membres (j'y suis sous l'avatar Taitino..)
