The Number One Reason You Should (Do) VEGANUARY

Why you should try veganuary this month

Food!  Who doesn’t love food?  And what’s better than great food? Great tasting vegan food! Most non vegans give vegans the bad rap of thinking that we only eat salad or better yet, just grass. But let me tell you this, those stereotypes couldn’t be further from the truth, especially with what happened last year!

Veganism has hit the mainstream and is growing rapidly.  With the wealth of information on the internet on everything vegan and those oh so delicious pictures of fully vegan recipes on Instagram, the world has turned around! Even grocery stores are stocking up on vegan snacks, gourmet foods, and a whole host of vegan options. Yes, we really do eat more than just salad (and grass).   And I experienced it first hand this year when we celebrated Christmas a little earlier with the family at our place, indulging in a huge vegan spread, including Linda McCartney’s vegan line. Our omnivore family loved the meal. But they just couldn’t believe they were eating vegan snacks and a vegan gourmet meal.  I think they had a preconceived notion that their meal was going to consist of pretzels, salad, and drinks.
