Ok, so maybe you said you’d take it easy this Christmas. Maybe you didn’t quite succeed. Maybe you had a few too many pigs in blankets or that one turkey sandwich that sent you over the edge, and now you’re having a few regrets.

Well never fear, January starts in a few days, so if you’ve got all your wild holiday meat-eating out of your system, why not take the Veganuary challenge and give your body, a bunch of friendly farm animals and the planet a break and adopt a plant-based diet. Go on, we dare you.

Did you know that a person following a vegan diet produces less than half the greenhouse gas emissions of a person who eats meat? Or that vegans generally have much lower blood pressure than meat eaters, reducing their risk of a wide variety of common health complaints?

The good people at Veganuary have developed a great set of resources to help you get through the month. It’s not as hard as it sounds!

We’ll be posting vegan recipes throughout January and giving top tips, so watch this space and be brave. Who knows, you might even keep it up in February?
