It’s Veganuary, a time for vegg’es [*pronounce Vedges]

December’s indulgences replaced by healthy pledges

A meat-free time to slim and recoup

With tasty meals and chunky soup

Perhaps for some the new regime

Will lead to changes in their life-long scheme

Eschewing milk, eggs, and flesh

Eating things that are garden fresh

For some it may be a struggle

Pastrami past their wives they’ll smuggle

But for those who stick to the course

The lifestyle they will in time endorse



The Veganuary website notes: “Since 2014, Veganuary has inspired and supported more than half a million people in 178 countries to try vegan for January – and beyond. We have worked with businesses to drive up vegan food provision in shops and restaurants, and have made veganism more visible and accessible through our work with national and international media.”

This year has really seen some changes in the marketplace.  Subway and Gregg’s have both added to their vegan lines, and smaller chains have mage new offerings as well.  I will review a few of these on Foodie Fridays, but so far I have been impressed.

To make for full disclosure, I have not taken the vegan pledge, but I have as a pescatarian cut out most (though not all) of my fish and eggs for the month.





One thought on “Veganuary

  1. vegan pastrami is pretty awesome, too. 😉

    i’ve never regretted going plant-based. and it’s just getting easier to switch all the time. i saw they introduced those gregg’s sausage rolls in time for the holidays. they look delicious!

    i love you.
