Have you been meaning to try a plant powered life for some time? Are you just a little bit full of Christmas turkey? Are you feeling the sadness of the environmental disaster that is the meat industry? Or maybe you want to just be a little bit healthy?
Why don't you join us for Veganuary?
...was started back in 2014 as a way to encourage people to go vegan for the first month of the year. A play on the words "vegan" and "January." It's been going strong since then, gaining traction every year. Up to this point over one million people have signed up to give it a go. There are tons of great resources on the website with recipe ideas, shopping guides, health information and so many ways to connect and learn. As with any lifestyle change, having a great community to join and be a part of definitely helps make it more fun and sustainable.
She offers some great tips to get started!
- Try meal planning
- Take one day at a time
- Follow some vegan blogs on social media - be inspired
- Don't worry if you slip up - just start again
You'll also find great inspiration by following some vegans on HIVE - @carolynstahl, @plantstoplanks, @justinparke and @sreypov post some delicious recipes! And you can find even more on @naturalmedicine's PLANT POWER curation, curated by @justinparke every Thursday on HIVE.

Fancy Winning 100 HIVE?
For those that want to go a little bit further, submit your post under this blog with a screenshot of ANY purchase of LOTUS via LeoDex (log in with your HIVE keys). At the end of Veganuary, we'll put your entries in a draw to win 100 HIVE!
Each post is worth 5 ENTRIES, and each 20 LOTUS is worth 1 ENTRY into the raffle. Extra super plant powered recipes will recieve bonus entries of up to 5.
So say you write 1 post and buy 100 LOTUS - that's 10 entries into the raffle. Write 3 posts and buy 20 Lotus, that's 16 entries into the raffle. If one of those is FREAKING AMAZING, we'll give you a bonus entry or 5!
Oh, and don't forget to reblog and mention this challenge AT THE END OF YOUR POST.
We'd love to invite sponsors for this challenge, so if anyone fancies throwing a little into the pot, that'd be appreciated!

- Write about your past experiences with Veganuary, or with veganism
- Write about why veganism might be an environmentally solid dietary choice
