As I’m still writing and recipe testing for my cookbook, I won’t be able to go completely vegan this Veganuary but I am pledging to include more vegan meals in my family’s diet. I’ll also be sharing some vegan recipes, cookbooks and products here on For a start, give my Vegan Pad Thai a try!

Will you be taking part in Veganuary? If you are able I’d encourage you to give it a go! I’d love to hear about your adventures with the challenge or any vegan recipes you have to recommend in the comments. Happy Veganuary!

  1. To be honest, I’m not sure I could pull off vegan for even a day. I do have one (!) vegan recipe which I love and make repeatedly, but I confess we had it last night and I sprinkled cheese fairly liberally on top. But I will take a look at those links for further ideas.

    • I definitely couldn’t do it full time, Pauline, but I am trying to increase the vegan meals we eat. I have managed to include a few more vegan recipes in our diet and I’ve been sent some vegan goodies which we are enjoying too 🙂
