If you like a challenge but don’t fancy Dry January, then why not take part in Veganuary? Veganuary is an annual campaign that encourages people to try a plant-based lifestyle for a month – although, just like Dry January, you can do this at any time of the year.
Last year, more than 500,000 people signed up for the initiative, and this year it’s predicted that even more people will take part. With multiple eateries adding more vegan items to their menus this month, it’s a great way to try new food and support restaurants that have been struggling throughout the pandemic.
The benefits of a plant-based diet can be very powerful. Studies show that diseases like cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes are linked to animal products, and switching to a vegan diet can prevent and treat some of the leading causes of death, like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.
Aside from the health benefits, a comprehensive analysis by Oxford University found that moving to a plant-based diet is the “single biggest way” to reduce your impact on Earth. Knowing you’re doing something so helpful for the planet (and animals, of course!) can be a positive way to start the year.
