As you probably already know, veganism is a way of living that includes a plant-based diet avoiding all animal foods such as meat (including fish, shellfish and insects), dairy, eggs, and even honey.
But if you’re thinking that doesn’t leave you much of a choice, you’d be very much mistaken. A vegan diet can open up a whole world of exciting foods and flavours. This includes the most amazing curries and cakes, pasties and pizzas – all of which can be made with plant-based ingredients.
What is Veganuary?
Veganuary is actually a non-profit organisation that encourages people worldwide to try going vegan for January and beyond. According to the Veganuary website, millions of people have signed up to their one-month vegan pledge since 2014, and in 2023 alone more than 1,610 new vegan products and menu options were launched in Veganuary’s key campaign countries.
What’s the aim of Veganuary?
Throughout the year, Veganuary encourages and supports people and businesses alike to move to a plant-based diet for all kinds of reasons. One is to help protect the environment. Another is to prevent animal suffering. A third reason is that a plant-based diet can improve the health of millions of people.
