Veganuary - The challenge - Week 1




The past few years January has been synonymous of Veganuary. As established Flexitarian family, we have decided this year, to push things a little further and take part in the challenge. Our diet is 90% plant based already so, hopefully, things shouldn't be too difficult. To make things a little easier and to help us stay own track, though,I have decided to create a little meal plan for us to follow. As we are still away and won't be home until the end of the week, we will start our challenge on Monday 6th until the end of the month.

Each week, I will post a summery of how we got on and how we feel about it, plus the meal plan for that week and a taster recipe. The full recipes will be available for buying in our virtual shop at the end of each week.


Here is the full meal plan for week 1. Taster recipe to follow.
