Three Ways in which Veganuary is Easy


I had often considered trying veganism in the past but had written it off as too difficult. I worried about what people would say - being a vegetarian already invites so many questions on an almost daily basis. Veganuary is, for me, the easiest time for a Vegan Trial. Here's three ways in which Veganuary is EASY:

1. People know what it is! 
I have written a short screenplay to illustrate my point:

FADE IN.  A COFFEE SHOP.

Two women make their way over to a small table and sit down.

WOMAN 1
Don't you normally get a brownie?

WOMAN 2 (casually)
Yeah, but I went for sweet and salty popcorn this time 'cos I'm doing Veganuary.  

WOMAN 1
Oh, okay cool.

THE END

2. Even if they don't know what it is, it's easy to explain.
Again, a short screenplay:

FADE IN.  A COFFEE SHOP.

Two women make their way over to a small table and sit down.

WOMAN 1
Don't you normally get a brownie?

WOMAN 2 (casually)
Yeah, but I went for sweet and salty popcorn this time 'cos I'm doing Veganuary.  

WOMAN 1
What's that?

WOMAN 2 (still casual)
It's where you try to be vegan for January. Y'know, like Dry January or Stoptober and stuff. 
Thought I'd try it out.

WOMAN 1
Oh, okay, cool. Can I have some popcorn?

THE END

3. There's a helpful community willing you on!
Type #veganuary on the end of a foody instagram post and I can almost guarantee that a friendly, encouraging person will comment to tell you you're doing a good job or give you tips to help you. On Day 1 I posted a picture of my vegan lunch and immediately received words that made me feel supported (and yes a little smug, so what?)
