Vegan Alternatives To Try This Veganuary

If you’re curious about veganism, Veganuary could be for you! It’s a challenge – one whole month of eating vegan. If you’ve never followed a vegan lifestyle before, the transition can be a bit daunting but with a little information in your arsenal, the experience can be a whole lot easier – dare we say, fun?

Just like with vegetarian and omnivorous diets, enjoying tasty vegan food at home largely comes down to seasonings. You need the right sauces, condiments, and marinades on hand or your food may indeed taste bland. Making sure you sample a variety of plant-based protein sources is another way to keep your new vegan diet feeling fresh and flavoursome. We’ve put together our list of some of our top vegan alternatives for you to try this Veganuary to keep things interesting and most importantly, flavoursome.


Vegan food swaps for veganuary including cauliflower tacos


Vegan Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a summer salad staple, and no one could expect you to last the entire month of January without a little mayo on your potato salad. But don’t despair, we’ve got the Celebrate Health Vegan Mayo to the rescue! While traditional mayonnaise is made with eggs, the Celebrate Health vegan mayo achieves the same creamy texture with plant-based ingredients like faba bean protein. Even better still, since it’s sweetened with stevia, our vegan mayo doesn’t contain any added cane sugar either. Try whipping up some cauliflower tacos for a tasty vegan dinner!


Butter Masala Recipe Base

If you love Indian food but you’re trying a plant-based diet for Veganuary, you’ll have to be mindful that a lot of curry sauces are made with yoghurt and other milk-based products. Even shelf-stable products at the supermarkets are often not vegan-friendly – be sure to read the nutritional panel on the back of the packs to be sure. But the Celebrate Health Vegan Butter Masala is plant-based and ready to curb your curry cravings. Just add your favourite seasonal veggies or a tin of chickpeas and you’re set!


Green Thai Curry Recipe Base

And just as the curry cravings are settling down, Thai food starts calling out to you. Fish sauce is a common ingredient in some of the most popular Thai dishes, which means a Thai green curry takeout might not be an option during Veganuary. Thankfully, the Celebrate Health green Thai curry is completely plant-based! With just a handful of ingredients you can make your own rich and spicy green Thai curry at home.


Chinese Stir Fry Recipe Base

When it comes to Chinese takeout, there can be a lot of pitfalls to look out for – one of the most common proteins used in Chinese cuisine is pork along with seafood and other meat-based proteins. But there’s no need to deny yourself tasty Chinese food for the entire month of January. With the vegan-friendly Celebrate Health Chinese Stir Fry Recipe Base, you can make a delicious Chinese stir fry at home using the protein of your choice – seitan and tofu both work great!
