Move over Dry January (abstaining from alcohol) and Whole30 (no processed or refined foods). Veganuary, which asks people to ditch meat this month, has emerged as this year’s trendy resolution.

The campaign was started in the United Kingdom in 2014 by Jane Land and Matthew Glover, a husband-and-wife team who met on a vegan dating site and were inspired by Movember (growing a mustache for men’s health). Participants who pledge to go vegan on the site receive daily recipes, tips and information about how a vegan diet benefits animals, the environment and our bodies.

 

Hollywood stars like Joaquin Phoenix, Alicia Silverstone and Mayim Bialik have lent their name to the cause. And on New Year’s Eve, Natalie Portman urged her 5.9 million Instagram followers to take the pledge. “Fight climate chaos with your fork,” she said.

National food chains have also gotten on board. Just Salad, a fast-casual chain based in New York City, is selling a limited-edition “Veganuary” salad made with organic sesame tofu, roasted mushrooms and a carrot-edamame slaw. In Zurich, Roots brings you healthy and vegan lunch menus daily from Monday to Friday directly to your home or to pick up. Our favorite: their Avocado Sandwich.

 

Otherwise, if you prefer to follow a home-made vegan diet, or even just incorporating more plant-based foods into your routine at home, these 31 days of easy, cozy vegan dinner recipes will get you through the month with ease.

 

Eating more plant-based foods and fewer animal products helps decrease the risk of developing chronic diseases (like diabetes and heart disease), makes losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight easier and also benefits the planet by decreasing the production of greenhouse gasses.
