What is Veganuary

What is Veganuary?

Since 2014, Veganuary has become an increasingly popular movement with over a million people in 192 countries taking part – and this number is continuing to grow. But what is it? Quite simply, Veganuary is following a vegan diet for the month of January, which can then inspire you to continue on afterwards. Whether you do the challenge for animal rights, health reasons, or to do your bit for the environment, it’s a step in the right direction!

If Veganuary 2021 is your first year taking part in Veganuary, Myvegan are here to make it easy and enjoyable – with exciting new products, delicious recipes, special offers, and expert advice and support. This is your plant-based journey, so do what works best for you and make the most of the incredible community to share tips, tricks and motivation.

Meal Plan - Week 01

What is the Myvegan Veganuary Meal Plan?

We get it. Going completely plant-based can be tricky if you are just starting out – but it doesn’t need to be! We’ve taken the planning into our hands so you don’t need to worry about it. Each week we will be sharing a detailed meal plan packed with mouth-watering recipes that you can make easily with no fuss or fancy ingredients.

‘No-chicken’ paella, Lentil Cottage Pie, Energy Burst Mocha Smoothie, Mixed Berry Fro-Yo – if you like the sound of these then you’ll love the others.

Every week you’ll have a choice of 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 4 dinners, and 2 home-made snack recipes that you can add into your growing repertoire of vegan recipes. As well as providing you with your key ingredients list and step-by-step guide for making them, we’ve also shared the nutritionals of each meal so you can see exactly what you are fuelling your body with and tailor it to suit your fitness goals if needed.

Health and wellbeing is one of Myvegan’s core brand values, so we have partnered with Rachel Greene, a Registered Associate Nutritionist, to make sure this meal plan provides you with the nutritionals you need stay on track.
