The new year is a time to celebrate with loved ones, to start fresh, and to make resolutions.
If you’re already a vegan, now is a great time to make a resolution to stay vegan and perhaps add something extra to your vegan journey. Join NARN, start (or attend) a vegan supper club and meet other vegans, raise funds for an animal organization, or maybe step out of your comfort zone and get involved with activism. The NARN calendar on our home page has all our upcoming events on it, including social nights and fundraisers, as well as demos and leafleting events.
If you’re not vegan yet, try it for a month. Veganuary.com is a great place to start. You can also look on Amazon.com for vegan cookbooks like How it all Vegan and The China Study Cookbook. Websites like the Post Punk Kitchen or Engine 2 Diet are great resources, and a web search will result in a ton of links to vegan recipes.
You might find being vegan is fun, easier than you thought, and makes you feel good about your health and all the animals your not eating. On a trial run, take the time to read about the plight of animals. Often, the easiest time to learn about what animals endure for our taste buds is when you’re not partaking in them. No guilt. No excuses. Just learn and be the change.
The future is vegan! Happy New Year!
