here has been a record number of sign ups for Veganuary this year. Over 500,000 people have taken the pledge to go meat and dairy free for January 2021. UK supermarkets even have pages on their websites and aisles in their stores dedicated to vegan products. Supermarkets invest a lot of money and time observing consumer behaviour so they must see a change is coming!

When you sign up to Veganuary you instantly receive 3 pdf e-books in your email:

The first is the 2021 edition of the Veganuary celebrity cookbook. It has over 75 recipes from celebs including Jason Gillespie's potato & spinach curry, Beyoncé's guacamole and a random green soup from Joanna Lumley. The recipes are well presented and don't require hundreds of hard to find ingredients.

If you think vegan equals expensive the second book in your Veganuary pack is the 7 day Budget Meal Plan. This has 7 days of recipes again covering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each recipe is designed to be low cost and realistic to make for a busy person.

Finally you also receive The Official Veganuary Starter Kit. This includes the answers to the usual questions such as where you will get your protein, calcium and B12. Also included is information about how being vegan will improve animal welfare, reduce environmental damage and affect your health.

Whether you are a newbie or a vegan veteran it's well worth the sign up just for those!

Veganuary is a UK based not for profit organisation started in 2014. It's goal is to encourage people to try out veganism for January and beyond. In 2020 60% of the 400,000 participants said it was easier being vegan than expected. 72% said they would continue to be vegan after January.
