Are You Ready To Go Plant-Based For A Month?

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Every year, new people attempt the Veganuary challenge, aka going vegan during January. However, for a lot of households, the transition between a normal diet and a vegan breakfast on January 1st can be tricky. As a result, it’s not uncommon for enthusiastic challenge takers to delay their Veganuary experience. Ultimately, it’s fair to say that most families begin the new year with plenty of sweets and other leftovers from the Christmas period. Needless to say, it’s best to go through your kitchen freezer and cupboards before you can embrace the challenges of a vegan diet. That’s why Veganuary sometimes starts a month later… While there isn’t such a thing as Febranuary yet, nothing is stopping you from trying out a plant-based diet, even if you’re not joining any challenge.

The most common worry about a plant-based diet is how to find alternatives to your typical diet. In reality, with a little bit of ingenuity, you can continue to enjoy your favorite meals. Here is how going vegan can affect your food:
First; the good news: Cakes
Granted, the typical cake recipes require eggs. But it doesn’t mean you can’t have vegan cakes. All you need to do is to find a way to replace eggs and dairy products in the mix. This vegan enthusiast shares a simple but delicious cupcake recipe that uses ingredients you already have in your pantry, except for a milk alternative – soy milk is a popular choice. In short, you can still have all the yummy snacks you love even when you stay away from animal products. When it comes to whipping your buttercream frosting, you can replace the butter with a vegan option, and you’re ready to go. For extra flavor, why not add some vegan sprinkles on top? The thing about vegan food is that it doesn’t have to look and feel any different from everyday food. And that’s the key to it; the easier you make it to switch, the more likely you are to make vegan your everyday choice.

How about quick lunchboxes?
If you’re the kind of person who buys a ham sandwich on the go, you may need to reconsider your lunchbox options. You need to make the most of healthy vegetables to give yourself the energy boost you need. Have you considered packing a pot of homemade hummus – with a simple recipe using fresh ingredients – and vegetable sticks? It’s a refreshing and yummy snack that is rich in proteins and vitamins. For extra carbs, you can add some pitta. If you prefer something that feels more like a meal, you will love the diversity of bento box recipes. The advantage of the bento is that you can heat your main in the microwave.

My everyday meal?
By now, you’ve probably realized that vegan diets can be exciting and full of flavors. You can keep the family satisfied with delicious vegan dinners that are a treat for the tastebuds and the planet. A mindful diet doesn’t have to force you to change your habits. On the contrary, it’s about finding alternatives that let you enjoy the things you love.

Are you ready for a vegan challenge, even if you’ve missed the start of Veganuary? In truth, it’s never too late to make your diet environmentally-friendly, so why not give plant-based food a go? You’ll be surprised by how much you will like it!
