With 2022 coming to an end, you may have a big focus on having a vegan Christmas. But beyond that lies the New Year - and a chance to make some resolutions.
We all know the joke that resolutions are made on January 1st and broken on January 2nd, but anyone who has taken the step of becoming a vegan will usually have done so fully aware that it takes a bit of determination to overcome obstacles in order to make it work. That means making some plant-based resolutions is a great way to go into 2023.
This doesn’t have to be all about food. There are so many natural skincare products out there that, by carefully selecting what you get, you can stay clean and fresh while looking after your complexion. It is known that as well as avoiding animal products, vegan cosmetics are kinder to the skin.
Even so, your resolution list should definitely include expanding your culinary horizons. You may be skipping meat and dairy, but there are so many vegan options out there and you need not restrict yourself. The good news is, you can find many vegan treats for New Year’s Eve parties, so you can actually get started in the old year if you have guests round for the night!
The further good news is you will get many opportunities to try new plant-based foods throughout 2023. If you are Scottish or have friends who are, an early chance could be Burn’s Night on January 25th, as vegetarian haggis offers a tasty alternative.
You can also use vegan principles during the year when it comes to buying gifts. If you have selected some plant-based presents for your loved ones this Christmas, that is a great start. But if not, you can start in the New Year with each and every birthday that takes place over the year. These could be a bit of an eye-opener for the recipients and get them thinking about a meat-free life.
With these resolutions, 2023 could be your best vegan year yet.
