WELLBEING

Veganuary | Delicious vegan recipes for every day of the week

It’s the month of Veganuary, where people across Britain commit to following a vegan (plant-based) diet for one full month. And according to the official Veganuary charity, 2019 has already seen 200 000 people pledging to go vegan for the month. That means at least one person has signed up to the cause every eight seconds, putting the organization on course to hit its target of 300,000 this year.

With week 1 of Veganuary in full swing, our vegan community on HealthUnlocked helped us curate this list of simple vegan recipes to help you cook up a scrumptious meal for every day of the week.
