TIPS TO HELP YOU SUCCEED AT VEGANUARY 2021
WHAT IS VEGANUARY?
Veganuary is a registered charity that encourages people worldwide to try vegan for January and (hopefully) beyond. The charity encourages and supports people and businesses alike to move to a plant-based diet to not just improve overall health and lifestyle but to protect the environment and prevent animal suffering. We have come up with some tips to make your vegan transition and journey surprisingly easy.
Write down the food and ingredients that you use on a regular basis and research alternative vegan options so when it comes to meal planning you are well prepared.
TEAM UP WITH A FRIEND
You can cook together, share recipes and generally stay on track with your vegan transition with someone else motivating you.
DON’T GIVE UP!
If you slip up don’t punish yourself or give up Veganuary all together. Every day that you manage a plant-based meal you should recognise your progress. Batch cooking meals are a great way to help keep you on track when you are feeling too lazy to cook!
SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW
Following vegan pages on Instagram and someone else’s journey online can be helpful if you are lacking inspiration for recipes. We have put together a few social media accounts that have really got us looking forward to the next food shop!
