↠ A healthy, wholefoods based vegan diet is much healthier than a conventional western diet full of overprocessed foods. ↠ Factory farming of poultry and livestock in particular are unethical and rife with disease, antibiotics and chemicals. ↠ Animal agriculture has a massive effect on the environment and the landscape through the contribution of greenhouse gases and more. ↠ Trying out Veganuary gives you the chance to start a new wellness journey and relationship with yourself, your body and the environment.

It’s easy to just stock up your fridge or freezer with vegan pizza, pies, cheeses, mock meat, snacks and cakes and while you are still eating plant-based you’re not doing much for your health. During Veganuary try to focus on filling your body with wholesome, natural plants and you’ll find yourself reaping the benefits. While there is of course nothing wrong with the odd ready meal or treat, try not to make your whole vegan January being solely about consuming these products. FIND OUT MORE
After all, it is your motivation that will get you through the month. What is it that made you want to commit to Veganuary? Find that motivation and better still write it down as this might help you if halfway through the month you feel a little less motivated than when you started.
Online communities and resources can go a long way when it comes to giving you a motivation boost or more simply a place to find information and connect with others. The Veganuary website is a great place to start with tonnes of information about going vegan, recipes, restaurant guides and a community you can join.
The short answer is that if you eat a wholefood, balanced, plant-based diet you will get all the protein you need. There’s actually a surprisingly large amount of protein that can be found in vegetables and eating legumes like beans and lentils as well as tofu and tempeh which is packed full of protein will help you get all the protein your body will need.

The first few days might be tough if you haven’t had the time to prepare well, but don’t worry.
