How to do Veganuary with UpCircle 2023

  • 3 min read
It’s January, the time of the year when everyone starts their New Year’s resolutions, sets goals that they want to meet, and generally tries to be a “better” / more “well-rounded” person. With more and more people wanting to do better for the planet,  joining Veganuary is a great place to start! 

In this blog, we will delve into what Veganuary is and why you should participate. In addition, we've also compiled our tasty recipes made by vegan foodies and inspired by our products. Whether you’re new to vegan cooking or a vegan looking for some inspiration, these recipes are sure to hit the spot!

What is Veganuary?

As the name suggests, Veganuary is a global movement with over one million people taking the 31-day plant-based pledge to help the planet.

Reasons why you should join Veganuary?

  • Prevents animal cruelty

There is simply no easier way to help animals and prevent animal cruelty by swapping meat, eggs and dairy products to plant based alternatives. Did you know every vegan saves nearly 200 animals per year?! (source: Peta 2020)

  • Saves the planet

According to Peta, consuming meat is not only unethical but also causes enormous amounts of pollution and contributes to the climate crisis.

  • Vegan food is delicious!

There is always a misconception that vegan food unappetising and is just leaves and grains but that’s a myth! As the demand for vegan food skyrockets, companies/ restaurants are coming out with more and more delicious meat-free and dairy-free options as well as tons of vegan recipes available (see below for vegan recipes). So you can still eat your favourite foods like burgers and ice cream!
