If you've decided to take the plunge and try Veganuary this year, we are really excited for you. There's so much tasty food to discover and new things to try this year.
Veganuary is actually not a time of year but a non-profit organisation that encourages and supports people to try veganism for January and beyond. Last year more than half a million people took part worldwide, and over 800 new vegan options and products were launched in key countries - the UK having the most engagement with the campaign.
Veganuary doesn't stop at the end of the month but continues to encourage and support individuals and businesses to move permanently to a plant-based diet as a means to protect the environment, prevent animals from suffering and improve the health of all who make the switch.
There is perhaps an overwhelming amount of choice of what to eat this January, and we'd like to help point you to the vegan brands that will help you.
The easiest way to swap out meat and dairy products for vegan food brands is simply to head to your usual supermarket.
All major supermarkets carry both their own brand and more well known vegan foods, especially meat and milk substitutes.
Look out for these supermarket's own plant-based brands:
It's way beyond the scope of this blog to explore every vegan item you can find in the large supermarkets. As well as their own brands, most of the bigger shops will include:
The list really does go on! Try typing 'vegan' into any supermarket's website, and we're sure you'll be amazed at the number of products available.
If you have a hectic lifestyle that doesn't allow you to cook or just prefer to use subscription servicesa great vegan substitute is All Plants.
All Plants offer a mouthwatering range of plant-based meals made by chefs and delivered frozen. The company prides itself that everything is designed to protect the planet from food to delivery. They are a B Corp company determined to be kind to the planet and the humans and animals who live there.
You could also try the meal kits from Abel and Cole, an organic veg box delivery company that offers a lot more. They will send you meal kits out each week, but you're not tied into the subscription; you can make changes up to 2 days before your delivery. Abel and Cole are another B Corp certified company, who use all organic produce and sustainable packaging with a low plastic approach.
Of course, you can buy all your vegan goodies online from any supermarket, or you could choose a weekly delivery from an organic veg box scheme, like Abel and Cole, Riverford or Eversfield.
But we'd hate to finish this blog without mentioning The Vegan Kind - 100% vegan online shopping.
They stock over 5000 vegan and cruelty-free products, ranging from vegan cheese and chocolate to ethical clothes and cruelty-free makeup. Each month they donate money to animal charities and plant a tree every time you order. So from plant-based meats, milks and ready meals to vegan chocolate and alcohol, we recommend checking out The Vegan Kind and seeing what goodies you can discover.
