Greener Eating This New Year

What does that mean I hear you cry. Well its essentially a month focused on greener, vegan eating which has both health benefits and is eco friendly.
Today I picked up the most delicious sandwich from the lovely people at Follow Your Heart who were giving out free samples outside the Radcliffe Camera. There was a traditional Ploughman's or the New Yorker- I opted for the New Yorker with delicious smoked Gouda cheese and dairy free mayo all on brown bread. It was perfectly filling and deliciously creamy and I could not more highly recommend! Not only that but it was packaged in compostable plastic! This taste test prompted me to fully consider Veganuary and what I can do to adopt a greener, healthier set of eating habits.

This January I'm not planning on going vegan but I am planning on cutting back on the amount of meat I eat- opting for the vegetarian meals in college more often and considering the products I buy and the packaging it comes in. I think Veganuary is the perfect time for some self-reflection and there's no pressure to carry it on. Although they do say that if you can stick to something for a month it more easily becomes a habit.
This isn't me attempting to push veganism on anyone but just a suggestion that going green doesn't mean bring or limited food options. There's a wealth of plant based alternatives and amazing recipes you just have to explore.
