For those of you wondering why you should try going vegan this January, here are just a few reasons:

  • It opens the door to a whole new type of food: there are SO many vegan and veggie restaurants popping up.
  • Save money: a diet focused on plants is significantly cheaper than one focused on meat and fish.
  • To create a healthy balanced diet by mixing it up: consuming less red and processed meat and more plant-based foods such as vegetables, beans, soy, and nuts can offer many potential health benefits.
  • Contribute to looking after the planet: reducing consumption of meat can help contain production of greenhouse gases that impact climate change.
  • It can also help lessen the demand for precious environmental resources such as land, water and energy.
  • Widen your palette! Lots of different cultures have delicious vegetarian food, such as Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern.

For many, there is fear that limiting your diet to just plants is difficult. However, as veganism has become more and more popular, it has become far easier to be vegan in 2022. With fast food restaurants such as Gregg’s introducing their vegan sausage roll, McDonald’s introducing the McPlant and supermarkets constantly adding incredible products to their vegan section- we’re practically spoilt for choice. With guidance from our talented Nomads, we have selected our top tips for giving it a go this month...
