Over the past few months, VegKit have been cooking up something pretty exciting…
The following article is from the VegKit website:
“We have partnered with someone who might just be even more passionate about plant-based cooking than they are, added a healthy dose of fresh Aussie produce, threw in a camera crew, and voila! We present to you: Australia’s very first 100% plant-based cooking show to grace free-to-air TV! 😀
It’s called Freshly Picked with Simon Toohey and will air on Channel 10 at 3:30 PM weekdays, starting this coming Monday, December 7th — of course, you can catch up later on 10 play, too.
If the name Simon Toohey rings a bell – there’s good reason! This super talented chef with a passion for creating a more compassionate, sustainable food system graced television screens over two consecutive seasons of Channel 10’s top-rated series, MasterChef. So we’re thrilled to be collaborating with the self-professed plant lover here at VegKit 🙂
Every episode of Freshly Picked will showcase the myriad of delicious and versatile ingredients the plant kingdom has to offer, as well as the dedicated Aussie farmers producing them. We’re particuarly excited to introduce you to some of the lovely producers behind our favourite foods!
You’ll be able to see their stories as well as pro tips from Simon and all the recipes he’s creating for the show, too. Check back here at VegKit.com for all the Freshly Picked content your heart desires ❤
Hope you tune in and hey, if you like what you see, let us know!”

Going vegan could not only lower your risk of severe Covid-19, if enough of us do it, it could lower the risk of future pandemics.
For people who may wish to lose weight, plant-based diets could be the best solution thanks to the way in which they influence metabolism.
New research shows that labels for plant-based products using terms usually associated with animal products, e.g. "oat milk" and "plant-based beef", do not lead consumers to become confused about whether they are buying animal products.
