Before I go on to writing my travelogue, I think this post had to be written. Do read it and please comment and respond if you want to join in or have recipes to share. It will be absolutely lovely to hear from you. Moreover, I will be giving a day-to-day update on my experiences which I hope will be useful for others trying to go Vegan ๐Ÿ™‚


Day 70: A fresh start for all of us, perhaps?

So here’s something I want to share with all of you. #January, world-over, is also celebrated as #Veganuary. It’s that time of the year when we a take a pledge to go on a vegan diet for a month. For some, this one month journey has led to them becoming vegan for  life!

Since many find it difficult to undergo a sudden change in diet for a month, they try it once or twice a week, for one whole week or alternate weeks or even a month and then try ways of adopting a vegan diet slowly in their lifestyle, making the shift gradual ๐Ÿ™‚ This could involve consciously cutting down on milk products, honey and so on. 

I wrote about it in the newspaper last year and tried it for a week. It was difficult. But definitely, an eye-opening experience. 

This year, I’m doing it again. And my mother and sister are joining me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s a shout out to everyone else who wanted to try it or doesn’t mind trying it after reading this post. Doing it in a community always builds morale. And even if you’re doing it for a day, it’s a start. And it counts. ๐Ÿ™‚ To all the vegans out there, help us out! Share some amazing recipes. And let’s give our two and four-legged friends a happy new year too!

    The doodle is nicely and neatly drawn, and ingenious.
    One way of going on the path of Vegan lifestyle, which I admit I was a failure at, is to reduce the number of times one takes daily coffee, tea and other beverages that include milk in it. For example, the traditional lifestyle of Indians is to have such a beverage twice daily in the morning and evening, and one can cut down to taking it only once per day. This may not seem much but imagine the daily relief for a cow who wouldn’t be forced to yield more milk through artificial injection of hormones.

    This is awesome that you’re giving veganuary a go! I tried going vegan last year for a month as a test and I’ve actually just stuck with it because I loved it so much! There are some awesome books out there that you can try. My mum has a book called “deliciously ella” I’ve heard the author doesn’t actually like the word vegan but all (if not 90%) of the recipes are plant-based. Also check out forksoverknives.com they have some excellent resources. Do you feature your articles with any other sites at all? Great stuff.

      Thank you so much for writing in. I will definitely look up the book. I wonder if you know any easy recipe for homemade vegan cheese. If so, do share it.

      I used to write for the Times of India, Chennai. It’s a widely read daily in India with one of the largest circulations. My articles are there in their e-versions too. Do check it out. ๐Ÿ™‚
