After the excesses of the festive period, there’s never been a better time to try something new and healthy. So this January why not consider giving Veganuary a go – a new year and a new start.

It may not be too difficult to convince environmentally-conscious, animal-welfare-rights-promoting friends and family members about the benefits of veganism. The fact that it’s the easiest and most effective way to help our planet and stop the cruelty and suffering inflicted on animals is a good enough reason to give it a go.

For others, thinking about the excesses of the festive period could do the trick. Cutting out cholesterol will lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease – and these are only some of the benefits of a vegan diet.

It may be trickier to persuade our meat-loving, exercise and gym-obsessed friends… but did you know that the Williams sisters have been vegans since 2011?

So if you are going to give it a try, search out some new tasty recipes and get cooking! The dishes you can find on The Vegan Society website are a great place to start and, once you begin looking, you’ll find delicious vegan recipes everywhere.

Inspired we tried this recipe (with a minor changes) the main change was substituting the chick peas for berlotti beans

So come on – embrace your inner vegan and give Veganuary a go this January 2018. A very happy and healthy New Vegan Year to you all!
