What is Veganuary?
Veganuary, from the words “vegan” and “January”, is an annual challenge to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January. It is run by a UK non-profit organisation that promotes and educates about veganism. Their annual campaign has reached people across the globe since launching in 2014. It has supported more than half a million people with the campaign, which they estimated corresponds to the life of more than a million animals.
Why is it relevant to be vegan nowadays?
One of the main reason for becoming vegan is preventing the exploitation of animals and animal cruelty. Another good reason for which is good to become vegan is for the positive impact that it has on your health system. Well-planned vegan diets follow healthy eating guidelines, and contain all the nutrients that our bodies need. Some research has linked vegan diets with lower body pressure and cholesterol, and lower rates of heart disease.
In conclusion, going vegan is a great opportunity to learn more about nutrition and cooking, and improve your diet.
What kind of food can you eat while being vegan?
We understand that eating vegan for a month can be challenging. However while following a vegan diet, there is plenty of food that you can actually eat. Fruits and vegetable are the first, healthy choice of every vegan. It is important, however, that your body receives all the necessary nutrients, and this is way a balanced diet full of legumes (such as peas, beans, and lentils), nuts and seeds is essential. Dairy alternatives such as soymilk, coconut milk, and almond milk can also help you with the amount of daily calcium. Not to mention that you can enjoy bread, rice and delicious pasta dishes while being vegan!
