Veganuary - Patisserie Valerie


It’s that time of the year again - Veganuary is here! 🌱


For those of you who don’t know, Veganuary is a challenge that encourages people to try veganism for the month of January. Whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, or a meat-eater, Veganuary is a great opportunity to explore a more plant-based diet. With an increasing demand for vegan products and plant-based options on menus, there has never been a better time to give veganism a go.


Benefits to veganism?


For your health, for the environment, and for animal welfare. A vegan diet is usually low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and high in fibre, vitamins, and other important nutrients. Eating a vegan diet can help reduce your risk of developing certain health conditions, such as heart disease and some types of cancer. It can also be a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, as vegan food is usually produced with fewer resources than animal-based products. Finally, a vegan diet is kinder to animals, as it eliminates the need for animal products in your diet.


When did Veganuary begin?


It started in 2014 and has grown rapidly since then, with over 580,000 people from 209 countries taking part worldwide in 2021.


Tips for Veganaury?


Eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, legumes, wholegrains and healthy fats to ensure you are meeting your dietary needs and getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals. Taking part in Veganuary will no doubt give you an amazing head start, but don't be afraid to take things slowly going forward.


What is the difference between plant-based and vegan?


Plant-based diets are diets that focus on eating whole, unprocessed plant foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds. These diets can include animal products, such as dairy and eggs, as well as processed foods. Veganism is a lifestyle that seeks to eliminate all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty, whether in food, clothing, or other products. Vegans do not consume any animal products, including dairy, eggs, and honey. They also avoid wearing animal products like leather, wool, and fur.


Are Vegan cakes tasty?


Vegan cakes can be delicious! Many vegan cakes are made with ingredients such as vegetable oils, vegan butter, vegan egg replacers, and dairy-free milks that make them just as tasty as their non-vegan counterparts. Additionally, many vegan cakes are made with unique flavor combinations that can make them even more delicious than traditional cakes.


Popular flavours?


There are many vegan cake recipes available, from classic chocolate cake to more unusual flavours such as carrot cake, banana cake, and even red velvet cake. Popular vegan cake recipes include vegan chocolate cake, vegan carrot cake, vegan banana cake, vegan lemon cake, vegan red velvet cake, and vegan coconut cake
