It’s nearly Christmas, and we know the drill. We’re going to overindulge. Eat and drink too much, and feel a tad guilty about it all afterwards. Next thing we know it’s January and the start of a new year. The chance to turn a new leaf and establish healthier habits. And what do most of us do? We look at our diet and nutrition. So it’s really no surprise that so many amazing initiatives kick off in January to support people through change. And as the start of the New Year is upon us, here at B Bakery, we’ve decided to get behind Vegan January: Veganuary. This year, we’re going to support our customers in going vegan for the month of January.
What is Veganuary?
Veganuary is an initiative first launched in 2014 by the corresponding registered charity. It encourages people to try following a vegan diet for the month of January. During the whole month, the charity will offer support to anyone signing up for the challenge. Going vegan isn’t just about switching your diet though. It’s about following a vegan lifestyle too.
So if you’ve been thinking about trying a vegan diet for size, or if you’ve been meaning to take the plunge and becoming vegan for life, Veganuary could do the trick. Perhaps you’re motivated by the huge impact that our omnivorous diets have on animals and the environment. Or maybe you simply want to set yourself up for a healthier start to the New Year. Whatever your motivation, with daily support and information, recipes and meal plans available at your fingertips during Veganuary, there really isn’t a better time to try veganism out.
When you sign up, you’ll receive helpful tips to get you started. Or to keep you going when the going gets tough! Plus, you’ll be joining a growing community of millions of people across the world who are looking to make more intentional and environmentally-friendly choices around food and lifestyle.
What’s so good about being vegan?
Following a vegan diet isn’t just about food. It’s a lifestyle choice that many of our customers embrace with pride. Research shows that when we eliminate meat and dairy from our plates and opt for a plant-based diet instead, our bodies and our health can reap some great benefits. Over time, vegans can boast decreased blood pressure and reduced risk of heart disease. Not to mention younger-looking skin and improved energy levels and mood. What’s not to like?
And let’s not forget about the environmental impact of going vegan. According to data shared by the charity Veganuary, in our lifetime, every single one of us will eat more than 7,000 animals. By reducing the amount of meat and dairy we consume globally, we can drastically reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. But we also get to impact the food production and food chains in a positive way. And hopefully, we get to save our oceans!
