5 vegan products you need this veganuary

vegan food, veganuary,

If you're taking part in veganuary this year then congratulations you're half way through your first month of plant based eating. You have already saved an average of 8,422 gallons of water, 420 sq ft of forest and 280 lbs of co2 and that's amazing! I know that changing your eating habits can be challenging so here are 5 things you need in your life this veganuary.

soya cream, veganuary, plant based

Alpro soya cream

If you love anything that comes in a creamy sauce then you need this little gem in your fridge. Mix it with tomato puree and chopped up sundried tomato to make an awesome speedy sauce for pasta. Throw it in a pan with ground almonds and spices to make a korma sauce, or pour it into risotto to make it rich and decadent.

nutritional yeast, veganuary, b12, plant based

Nutritional Yeast

This is a must for many vegans, people worry they aren't getting enough B12 when on a plant based diet so these little flakes can be added to loads of dishes to keep your intake up. It's easy to find at Holland and Barrett or Grape Tree and adds a lovely cheesy flavour to food. I love disolving it into some soya cream to make a cheesy sauce for mushrooms that can then be piled onto some sourdough toast to make an awesome breakfast or lunch. Nutritional yeast also tastes great mixed through mash potato.

vegan chicken, soya chunks, veganuary,

Marks and Spencer soya chunks

These are the best chicken replacement in my opinion, I use these in any recipe that calls for diced chicken and they taste great. From curries to fajitas they work a treat, they also make a pretty good chicken sandwich if you don't want straight up veggies all the time.

dairy free pesto, veganuary, plant based


If you can't be bothered to make your own, which let's be honest must be most people or else sacla would have a massive dent in their sales. Pesto is a great staple to keep on hand to make a speedy pasta dish, but it also tastes amazing mixed through oven roasted veggies (especially sprouts ) or stirred into mashed potatoes.

Cadburys hot chocolate, vegan, veganuary

Cadburys hot chocolate

You might not have realised that Cadbury hot chocolate powder doesn't contain dairy, just don't pick up the instant variety by mistake as this does have milk powder in it. Straight up old fashioned hot chocolate added to your favourite plant based milk means you don't have to miss out on this quintessential winter drink.

Good luck with the rest of Veganuary, and I hope you have discovered some great products. You're doing something great for your health and the environment and there are so many people on social media willing to lend a hand if you need help or advice so don't be afraid to ask.

Thanks for reading!
