Veganuary is in full swing, where individuals challenge themselves to adopt a vegan diet for the first month of the new year. 

Veganism has become pretty popular these days, with the number of vegans in the UK rising by 360 per cent in the last 10 years, according to a recent study by The Vegan Society.

With this in mind, we're sure there are plenty of Irish people willing to try the vegan lifestyle, which strictly prohibits the consumption of any animal by-products. 

Veganism has been cited to improve the health, aid weight loss and be better for the environment than a carnivorous diet according to its followers. 

Deliveroo has reported that orders of vegan takeaways have increased by 203% on last year. 

'December’s excesses mean that we all often spend January trying to make more conscientious decisions when it comes to food' said Bobby Burns at Deliveroo.

'Each year there’s pressure to create and follow a new year’s resolution. Deliveroo makes it easy by offering healthy food choices, making it easy to stick to those changes.'

Deliveroo is encouraging curry lovers to give The Garden of Vegan's new offering a go. A comforting vegan curry consisting of chickpeas, lentils, sweetcorn, and roasted potato, cooked with cumin seeds and tumeric is on the menu courtesy of the Ranelagh based restaurant. 

It's also National Chicken Curry Day on 12th January, so if you needed another excuse there you have it.

January has been officially taken over by the vegans.

If you haven't heard of Veganuary yet – it's when people sign-up to take part in going vegan for the month of January.

Veganism is, of course, more than just a diet but the food is a massive part of the lifestyle.

That's why Dublin will host the Vegan Foodie Festival from January 24 to 27.

In its second year, the festival aims to show how easy and accessible it is to be vegan around the capital – and all at a special discount for participates. 

SHEmazing spoke to the organiser, Katy Morgan who explained that 22 vegan restaurants will be taking part this year.

"We have 22 vegan or vegan-friendly restaurants on board, one beauty salon and two vegan bakeries," she said.

Although the festival is currently Dublin-based, Katy hopes to expand and bring it to other cities in Ireland this year.

If you've taken part in the popular foodie event last year, make a note that for 2019 you will need a ticket.

The tickets are €2.50 each and Katy advises to hold onto the one you buy for the entire festival. 

Katy explained: "Tickets avail of all the special offers. All you need to do is to get a ticket and visit as many participating places with one ticket."

"Show it before making an order and inform them that you are here to celebrate Vegan Foodie Festival," she added.
