Veganuary at Liverpool ONE

Veganuary at Liverpool ONE

Fancy doing something to benefit your health this New Year? Why not join the thousands of people who have pledged to go vegan for January?

What’s Veganuary all about anyway?

 

So you’ve seen the hashtag, and you know Sam from your office has started having coconut milk in her coffee, and that guy from the gym has been telling you how he’s switched from chicken to tofu, but what is Veganuary actually all about?

 

The Veganuary movement, which was created by the UK-based registered charity of the same name, started in January 2014 and aims to inspire people to follow a plant-based diet for January and throughout the rest of the year.

 

According to the charity, going vegan can improve personal health, reduce meat intake, and can even help the planet.


Health

 

So, in real terms, how can being vegan help your health? Well, according to studies, on average, vegans have a healthier body mass index and lower cholesterol levels than meat eaters and vegetarians. Vegetarians and vegans in particular, on average, have a lower blood pressure than the standard population too. Eating a plant-based diet has also been shown to reduce the chance of developing type 2 diabetes.

 

To help people make the leap from omnivore to herbivore, when you sign up to the campaign, you’ll receive daily emails containing recipes, meal plans and other tips.

TGI Fridays

 

You don’t need to go to strictly vegan restaurants to get your fill of appetising vegan food. Famous for its flame-grilled burgers, seasoned pork ribs, signature steaks and chargrilled chicken, you’d be forgiven for thinking that TGI Fridays is a no-go over Veganuary. However, this American diner-cum-cocktail bar is offering a brand new vegan burger for a limited time. A nutritious and delicious plant protein burger made from coconut oil, beetroot juice and mushrooms, seasoned with herbs and spices, topped with lettuce, onion, tomato and a vegan bun and served with Legendary Glaze and avocado mayonnaise crispy fries, this dish promises to turn the heads of the most committed carnivores.
