What is Veganurary?

Put simply, Veganurary is where people either avoid, or try to eat less meat and other animal products, and try to follow a vegan diet. A vegan diet is one that avoids meat products, as well as other animal products such as milk and eggs. More and more people are starting to follow a vegan diet, citing concerns for animal welfare or dietary concerns as some of the main reasons why they choose to go vegan. 

In recent years, there have been more and more debates over the ethics of eating meat, as well as the impact it has on our planet. Veganism is definitely becoming more and more popular, and is coming into the mainstream all the time.

If you’re wanting to take part in Veganurary, you can start by making a change in your diet, and cutting out any meat and animal products you might have, and replacing them with meat-free alternatives. There’s plenty of them out there, with many supermarkets stocking vegan or “plant kitchen” meal ideas, such as Quorn. Big restaurants and fast food chains have been getting on board too, offering more and more vegan options. 

Perhaps one of the best known vegan food launches in recent years has been the Greggs Vegan sausage roll. Launched in January 2019, this meat free alternative to their famous sausage roll has become a big hit. Things like these are perfect for anyone wanting to give Veganurary a go, or for those who simply want to cut down on the amount of meat they eat. 

With so many options available, you’re able to commit to going vegan as much or as little as you want.

What if I enjoy it?

It may be Veganuary for one month, but if you enjoy your vegan diet, you can make it permanent! Just because you tried it for one month doesn’t mean that you can’t do it all year round.
