Happy Veganuary!



January may be nearly over but you can still give Veganuary a go!

Veganuary started back in 2014, encouraging people all over the world to go vegan for 31 days, and whilst numbers were low to begin with over half a million people took part in Veganuary last year to see what all the fuss was about.

So what does eating vegan look like? Well it’s no different to eating normally, just without any meat or diary thrown into the mix! Many shops offer vegan substitutes to these products if you get a craving, and many alternatives are just as tasty (or sometimes better!) than the real deal.

But why would you want to take part in a challenge that for many seems impossible! Well there are lots of reasons to try going vegan (even just for a month!) and here are just a few;

  • To support animal welfare
  • To reduce carbon emissions
  • To eat healthier
  • To discover new recipes
  • To enter the New Year taking part in a fun challenge!

When I first took part in Veganuary in 2020 I was pretty sceptical at first, how was I going to survive the month without cheese! But there are so many great vegan substitutes to choose from that I have been spoilt for choice ever since. More than 825 new vegan products were launched last year for Veganuary and this year is no different so far with new launches from Krispy Kreme, Dominoes and Burger King to name but a few.

So what are you waiting for! Why not give Veganuary ago – and be sure to check out some of our tasty vegan recipes to get you started.
