Happy January everyone! Now that we’ve entered a new year and a new month, it’s time for a new seasonal eating list.
I have seen loads and loads of people on my twitter timeline mention that they are taking part in Veganuary, which I think is just absolutely brilliant. I know that for those of you whose first time it is cutting out meat and dairy, it’s already going to be a huge change, but here’s some guidance on what veg will be most delicious at this time of year!
(I also have loads of vegan recipes, if you need some inspiration).
