Setting and keeping New Year’s resolutions

The most important thing to consider when choosing your New Year’s resolutions is to make sure they’re actually achievable. This will increase your chances of being able to incorporate them into your everyday life so you stick to them in the long-term. For example, if you’re a bit of a couch potato, it would be unwise to try and run a marathon by Valentine’s Day.

The same goes here for setting vegan New Year’s resolutions. If your goal is to embrace a vegan lifestyle in 2021, then it’s worthwhile to start by making small changes that will build up over time, such as choosing different healthy sources of protein for your meals.

When it comes to choosing your New year’s resolutions in the first place, think about the person you want to be and the kind of future you want to live in. What are your values, ethics and beliefs? What do you care about? If it’s the environment - go vegan. If it’s your health - go vegan. If it’s helping animals - go vegan!

Common vegan New Year’s resolutions

For first-time vegans

Three common ‘first timer’ vegan New Year’s resolutions include:

  • Finding alternative sources of protein (other than meat) - The benefits of eating less meat are plentiful for our minds and bodies, and eating less meat also helps the environment by reducing carbon emissions. Common alternatives to meat include Quorn, tofu, beans, lentils, soy products and vegan protein powder.

  • Start with ‘Meatless Monday’ - Meatless Mondays are a great way to ease yourself into a vegan lifestyle. Start by eating no meat just on Mondays, so you can experiment with different foods and meal combinations. Before long, you’ll be doing Meatless Tuesday, Meatless Wednesday, and so on!

  • Experiment with vegetables - The benefits of eating more veggies are astronomical, and being a bit more adventurous with the vegetables you choose can encourage you to get creative when it comes to vegan cooking.

For seasoned vegans

How you can step up your food resolutions:

  • Cook vegan food for your family and friends - One of the beauties of veganism is that it can be enjoyed by everyone - even non-vegans! One of your New Year’s resolutions as a seasoned vegan could be to create, make and share vegan food with your loved ones at special occasions in 2021.

  • Try to eat vegan food all year - This is a fairly simple New Year’s resolution - don’t cheat! If you’re been vegan for a while but tend to sway in and out of the lifestyle, try committing to a goal this year and aim to eat vegan throughout 2021. Remember, vegan food can be enjoyed at any time of year, even birthdays, weddings, christenings and parties!

  • Widen your vegan food repertoire - If you feel you’re stuck in a bit of a rut with your vegan cooking, aim to expand your list of go-to vegan recipes this year. Eating the same thing day-in and day-out can get tiresome, so commit to a bit more experimentation and flavour in the New Year.
