January is the month of new starts and people all across the world are diving into Veganuary – a month-long vegan pledge. If you have committed to this movement in Mumbai, here are some places that can help stick to your promise.
Many people around the world have decided to commit to a vegan way of living and eating. Whether for ethical, personal, health or moral reasons, it can come with a whole host of benefits, but it can also be very difficult to maintain. Most of society is geared towards a dependency on animals and even though India is the largest vegetarian population in the world, there is still a heavy dependency on dairy and other animal by-products.
Veganuary began as a way to introduce people into a vegan lifestyle without the pressure of a lifelong commitment. It’s the perfect opportunity to try it out and see what world for you. Even if you’ve just been trying to cut back on your meat intake or just eat a bit healthier, Veganuary could be for you. Here are a few places you can go to taste how great going vegan could be.
