January is here again which can only mean one thing — it’s time to dedicate yourself to a new hobby or interest in the spirit of ‘new year, new you’.
While many New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by February, Veganuary is one 30-day goal we can actually get behind. Veganuary, a.k.a. switching to a plant-based diet for the month of January, is good for your health, great for the environment and the best part — has an end date!
Not only will you come out of it with a new appreciation for vegans everywhere, but hopefully you’ll also learn a whole host of new plant-based recipes to keep in your arsenal all year long.
To help you on your vegan journey, here’s a list of just some fantastic recipe books featuring an array of delicious plant-based dishes.
