We’re almost halfway through Veganuary and, although I’m not taking part this year, I’m still a supporter of the campaign which, with 50,000 people taking part this year, is more popular than ever. In case you’re wondering why I’m not taking part this time when I loved doing it last year, I’ve had a change in circumstances and, frankly, I can’t be arsed (I know, crap excuse – it’s not like I can’t be arsed to be vegetarian anymore). Still, it’s not too late for you to join in and I’ve posted below an infographic containing some information about veganism in general (ignore the bit about you’re not vegan if you use the new five pound note. Yes, they contain bits of animals but so do smartphones and computers and you’re not going to go back to using smoke signals and abacuses, are you? But if you really don’t want to use the new five pound notes, just send them to me and I will dispose of them for you in the pub.)
If you want to read about how I got on last year and – most importantly – what I ate, you can read all my Veganuary posts here. You can also find all the information you need about what the campaign’s about, what to eat and where to eat on the Veganuary website and if you want to hang out online with fellow Veganuarers (possibly not the official term) and ask lots of questions such as ‘are honey and eggs vegan?’, join the Veganuary Facebook Group. There are loads of other vegan groups on Facebook but if you’re new to veganism or prefer to avoid militant arseholes who stamp on newbies for asking if honey and eggs are vegan, I’d stick to the friendlier Veganuary page.
