The Vegan way of life is quickly growing in popularity, but if you’re not lucky enough to be surrounded by a bubble of fellow plant eaters, it can feel like you’re out at sea navigating this weird and wonderful journey all on your own. Luckily, the joy of the internet and our media-heavy world means that you have everything you could possibly need right at your fingertips – whether that’s resources to educate and inspire you or somewhere that’ll give you that sense of community you’ve been craving…
Veganuary might be focused on the first month of the year, but they provide a wealth of useful information all year around. Their website contains everything from myths about veganism, recipes, lists all of your favourite accidentally vegan products & even your very own vegan starter kit – everything you need to get started on the right foot!
If you’re struggling for recipe ideas, the Minimalist Baker is the place for you. Although they do share a few non-vegan recipes, the vast majority of their incredible recipes are plant-based and there’s a huge focus around dishes that are quick and easy, using 10 ingredients or less. There’s just about anything and everything on this wonderful blog – flavoursome salads, stackable burgers, and healthier smoothies and sweets.
Learning more about veganism and reminding yourself of your reasons for making a change is a great way to keep motivated. If you want to learn more about improving your sporting performance on a plant-based diet, check out Game Changers on Netflix, or Cowspiracy if you’re passionate about doing your bit for the environment.
Eating Animals is an honest, balanced and really well articulated book for those wanting more of an insight into the meat industry. Although based in America, it’s sure to change the way you think about what you eat, forever.
