After the year we have all had, it is fair to say that dry January may not be on the cards for the majority of people this year. So if you’re looking for another challenge to kick off your 2021 with a healthy bang, Veganuary is a FAB option.
So what is Veganuary?
Veganuary is a term that comes from a UK-based non-profit organisation, whose mission is to encourage people to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January. Veganuary starts on 1st January 2021 and runs for the whole month.
How to get started
As you’ve probably guessed, a vegan diet involves cutting out all animal products from your diet. Not only can you not eat meat, but vegans do not eat anything derived from animals (e.g. eggs, milk, dairy products etc).
So what can I eat?
Vegans eat a diet based around plants and luckily over recent years, the availability of vegan products has rapidly increased! Here at Plateaway, it’s never been easier to stick to Veganuary. Our selection of vegan kits has soared and each kit comes with all the ingredients you need to make DELICIOUS meat-free meals at home!
