With all the health documentaries available for streaming on websites like Netflix and Shomi these days (Forks Over Knives, Cowspiracy, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, Hungry For Change, Food Inc.), it’s no surprise that 10’s of thousands of people worldwide are participating in Veganuary this January. Humanity is waking up and starting to realize that the Food Industry, Big Agro and their lobbyists only have one goal in mind and that is increasing their shareholders annual profits.
This is a major problem that needs to be dealt with because it is happening at the expense of the environment, the animals and the people of this beautiful planet. The Corporations are deliberately poisoning our food supply, diminishing our health and poisoning 100’s of millions of acres of valuable farm land world wide.
The only way this problem is going to go away is if we take a stand and start to vote with our wallets/pocket books. The Corporations will continue to fill the grocery store isles with toxic, processed, sugary GMO foods if we continue to buy them. They will continue the cruelty on factory farmed animals if we continue to buy the animal products.
Lets be honest, it really is that simple! They will always supply whatever there is a demand for. If we only buy clean, organic, fair trade food products and stop buying all the processed, convenience crap. Then these are the foods we will start to see filling the isles in our grocery stores. We are the only ones that can bring about this change and it all starts in our kitchens with our own families.
If Einstein was alive today he would tell us that we can not solve the problems of todays world with the same level of thinking that created them. We must reach for higher thoughts/goals and then take action so we can make this planet a better place to live for our children, grandchildren and future generations.

What do you have to lose? Why not participate in Veganuary and give up all animal products for 30 days? You might be amazed at the transformation you see in the mirror, or just how clear your thinking can still be. You might find yourself feeling like a totally different person. If you were to ask us what’s one thing you could do starting tomorrow to substantially improve your health and improve the planet at the same time, we would tell you to participate in Veganuary for the next 30 days!
At least 20,000 people have put their names to a campaign aimed at encouraging people to go vegan for the month of January.
“It’s not just about a healthier lifestyle. Going vegan also has benefits for the environment and helps reduce cruelty to for animals.” Jane Land, founder of Veganuary
Veganuary is aimed at persuading people to try to live without meat, fish and other animal based food, such as dairy products, for a substantial period of time.
What is left is a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes, and good quality fats, such as those contained in nuts, seeds, avocados, and olive oil.
“More than 75 per cent of people who have tried going vegan for a month report an improvement in their health. They said they slept better and they lost an average of 6lbs as a result of their changed diet.”
The organisers say that 51 per cent of people who give it a go for a month decide to remain on a vegan diet.
Among Veganuary supporters are several celebrities, such as Vivienne Westwood, the fashion designer; actors Martin Shaw, Peter Egan and Kellie Bright; and the poet Benjamin Zephaniah.

So why not step out of your comfort zone and really see what you are made of? Take the Veganuary Challenge and give up all animal products for 30 days. After the 30 days I guarantee you will have a whole new outlook on life.
If you are one of those people that think you could never go vegan for 30 days why not take smaller steps and try becoming a vegetarian for 30 days… Small incremental changes over a longer period of time will still get you to your goals…
