5 Top Tik Tokers to Follow in Veganuary

What is Veganuary?

Veganuary is a challenge that takes place across the month of January in which you change your diet and consume only plant-based foods. That means no longer eating meat, dairy or eggs.  If you’ve yet to come across the term, you may be wondering what is the point of Veganuary? There can be many benefits in reducing your consumption of animal products. A vegan diet can be great for your health, encouraging you to eat more fruit and veg. Whilst also reducing your carbon footprint and helping you do your bit for the environment. 

Veganuary aims to raise awareness of the diet and its benefits, whilst demonstrating how easy it can be to be vegan.  It’s goal is to encourage people to consume more plant-based foods. Whether that be by practicing full time veganism, vegetarianism or just taking part in the occasional meatless Monday!

If you are interested in jumping on the Veganuary bandwagon, or have already started the challenge, here are a few of our favourite Tik Tokers to follow for plant based tips, motivation and the best Veganuary recipes.

 

  1. @fitgreenmind

 

Maya Leinenbach, the content creator behind Fit Green Mind makes the most indulgent, mouth watering vegan recipes and doesn’t shy away from flavour. She manages to veganise the unexpected from chicken wings to cheesecake! Along with creating Veganuary solutions to all of your non-vegan favourites using just plant based ingredients. Her content is so digestible and easy to follow along to. We highly recommend giving her a follow if you are missing any of your most loved non-vegan foods this January. Her message is that being vegan shouldn’t mean having to give up foods you love! Find her page here.

  1. @bakinghermann

 

An untraditional choice for this list as Julius Fiedler, the creator behind Bakinghermann is not fully plant-based himself. However, given his commitment to posting only vegan recipes this Veganuary, along with the fact he can empathise with those coming from a meat-based background, we thought we’d add him to our list. Join him on his journey this month, so far he’s experimented with a range of cuisines from Thai to Italian. Julius’ content for the most part outside of Veganuary talks about fighting for food transparency, and eating sustainably. We’d recommend keeping up with him post Veganuary! Check him out here. 

 

  1. @onegreatvegan

 

Also known as “the singing chef”, Gabrielle Reyes’ genuine personality shines through in her content, as does her singing. The food she creates is as vibrant as her personality, if you’re a fan of tropical fruit, colourful veggies and are partial to a bit of singing whilst you’re cooking, you might be a fan of Gabrielle’s. If you have a sweet tooth you’ll love some of her desserts such as her french toast dippers and her “perfect” chocolate chip cookies. Check her page out here.
