VEGANUARY! January 15, 2016 14:25

Recent research has estimated that over the Christmas period, each Brit ate a whopping 30,000 more calories than normal!* Can you imagine what that looks like? We’ve worked out it’s the equivalent of 13 Victoria sponge cakes and 144 scoops of ice-cream over a 30 day period!

Don’t get us wrong, we love Christmas and all the overindulgence it brings, but is anyone else feeling the need to simplify? With that in mind, this month we are giving Veganuary a go. It’s a global campaign that encourages people to try going vegan for the first month of the year.

The non-profit organisation Veganuary explain on their website: “Veganism is one of the most effective choices a person can make to reduce the suffering of animals, help the planet and improve personal health.”

Eating vegan is generally considered to be an effective way of reducing your calorie intake, which is a bit of a plus after all the Christmas feasting! Check out their website for more information if you’re curious - there’s masses of information and recipes.

And don’t forget our delicious range of Vegan-suitable products too, including our award-winning Country Pies, our new-recipe 1/4lb and 50g Burgers, and our Sausages, Sausage Rolls, Sausage Plait and Mince! Check out our range in the “Our Food” tab for details.
