Personally, I’m a little (pleasantly) surprised, I have completed it as I’d always thought it would be too difficult to stick to and my diet wouldn’t be varied enough to keep things interesting. However, with the help of a combination of our delicious Fresh Fitness Food vegan meals, as well as time spent planning, I’ve found it really enjoyable and as I’ve mentioned before, quite an eye-opener!
The number of people following a vegetarian or vegan diet has significantly increased in recent times as being vegan has become far more accessible to the general public. The food and drink industry has capitalised on the sharp rise in veganism, meaning we now see more plant-based meal options in supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, and across social media channels!
Week 3 - Veganuary
We’re now three weeks into Veganuary, Veganary or just plant-based month if that’s too much of a mouthful for you (see our IGTV bloopers for some lols). The weeks seem to be flying by and I now feel as though I’ve got the hang of things in terms of food choices, meal planning and preparation. The diet change has become more effortless and enjoyable, compared to the first couple of days!
The number of people following a vegetarian or vegan diet has sky-rocketed in recent years. A report by The Vegan Society named the ‘plant-based movement’ as one of the fastest-growing lifestyle trends in the UK, with the number of people following a vegan diet increasing by 360% over the past decade. On Instagram, the term #vegan has over a staggering 87 million posts associated with it and the number of individuals ‘taking the pledge’ for veganuary has been over half a million since 2014!
