Going vegan this January? Here’s a short survival guide on how to ditch animal products and get through Veganuary, with a little help from Youth Discount.
Plan your meals
If you plan your meals in advance so that you know exactly what you’re going to eat and when, you’re less likely to (accidentally) eat meat. Although there are plenty of vegan dishes you can try at restaurants now that eateries are expanding their vegan options, home cooking will save you money, and it also means you can make plenty of leftovers.
Worried about where to start? Gousto make it easy for you—just select from their range of plant-based recipes and they will deliver all the recipes and ingredients for you to your door in one box. And right now you can get 50% off your first box and 30% off all other boxes in your first month at Gousto with Youth Discount!
Look after your skin
Skincare and cosmetics can be something that’s often overlooked in Veganuary as many people expect all the ingredients of beauty products to be vegan—however they are not! Vitamasques, however offer a range of vegan-friendly face masks to suit all skin concerns. And better yet, you can 25% off with Youth Discount!
Invest in some vegan beauty
Vegan cosmetics can be quite costly. However, Bellapierre Cosmetics have a range of affordable vegan beauty products, that are also included in the 20% discount you can get with Youth Discount. We’ve got our eyes on these liquid shadows to add a bit of sparkle to these dull January days!
Make sure you get enough protein
You might be concerned about where your source of protein is going to come from without meat in your diet. There are a number of foods that contain a high amount of protein that you can use within your meals, including:
- seitan (mock meat made from wheat gluten)
- green peas
- soy milk
If you’re on the go all the time and need that extra protein, Neat Nutrition have a vegan protein that’s great to use when you’re cooking as well as just in a shake. We’ve got our eye on this delicious banana pecan vegan muffin recipe. Don’t forget, you can get 25% off at Neat Nutrition with Youth Discount too.
It IS possible to get vegan footwear!
In case you need to buy some new footwear this Veganuary, look no further than EMP for their range of vegan footwear. The ones pictured below are the Enid boots from vegan footwear brand Altercore. Youth Discount are currently offering 15% off at EMP so don’t forget to use the code at checkout.
