If you are celebrating Veganuary this year we have sourced some family favourite recipes that have been given a vegan twist to help you stick to your month long commitment…
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day…so start your day with a vegan brekky to get things off to a great start.
We are super amazed and delighted that Country Living offer an outstanding 30 ideas for vegan breakfasts ensuring you’ll find something for every day of the month!
If time is precious then these no fuss recipes offer 7 different breakfast ideas that anyone can do in no time at all. Peanut butter on toast anyone? Topped with banana? Well why not…
A good chilli is the perfect winter warmer, and makes a great lunch with a jacket potato. It’s filling and will give you plenty of energy to get you through the rest of your day.
Check out this recipe from BBC Good Food.
If a sandwich is an easier lunch option then dive into the Veganuary site for not one but ten great filling ideas to bring your sandwiches to life.
A British classic (even if it is Italian) is a spag-bol for a mid week dinner that is a real crowd pleaser. We found that Tesco offered a great recipe to give this family favourite a vegan makeover.
If you want something rib-stickingly good for a cold winter’s eve, a shepherds pie is the very thing and Jamie Oliver has created a brilliant vegan version that will leave you full, warm and satisfied.
If your Sunday isn’t complete without a roast, fear not, the Lowly Food website guides you through creating a full roast with all the trimmings that is vegan through and through.
And we can’t forget a pudding; the Hairy Bikers come to the rescue with a fabulous vegan brownie recipe that everyone will love.
While going full time vegan might not be for everyone, a month is a great way to give it a go and find ways of incorporating it into your diet. The less meat we eat, the better it is for the planet and a diet lower in meat is also great for us too, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
