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!
Myvegan are here to make it easy and enjoyable – with exciting new products, delicious recipes, special offers, and expert advice and support.
Don't worry, Veganuary shouldn't be restrictive and should be enjoyable. We are all on our own individual journeys so don't put too much pressure on yourself to be perfect.
For the first few weeks, you’ll want to plan your meals a little more, so that you don’t get stuck for food. A good place to start is to think about what you would usually eat and try to find substitutes. For example, you might want to think about switching out beef mince for lentils to make a simple spaghetti Bolognese, or vegan chilli.
The most important thing with taking on a new diet is making sure that you’re getting all the nutrients you need. If you’re eating a good variety of foods, then chances are that you’re not far off. Most vegans need a vitamin B12 supplement, however, and you might want to up your protein intake conveniently with shakes or snacks. Do some research to make sure that your meals are balanced and not too high in fat or sugar, as it’s all too easy to replace the meat with more carbohydrates, rather than the protein you need.
