Veganuary: What Is It, Should I Try It?

Somewhere towards the end of 2018, I had a wild idea. I was going to try to go vegan in January. I thought, after all the junk food over the holiday season, from Thanksgiving to New years, I needed an intervention. A kind of hard reset that would get me back onto the path of cleaner eating.

Little did I know, this was already a thing. Veganuary, which had already been created by someone else was something many other people were trying. After posting about my idea on Instagram and hearing about Veganuary, I learned my blogging friend, Budget Epicurean, was going to try Veganuary. She wrote a post listing 4 compelling reasons everyone should try Veganuary.

Don’t worry if you feel like you missed the bus because we are already 2 weeks into January. Even a week or day of Veganuary may change the way you think about food. Follow along as she blogs about her Veganuary experience while photo journaling her delicious recipes along the way.  Read the article →
