There are several different reasons why going vegan is beneficial, even if it is for a short period. If you go vegan for a few weeks, you are likely to be more encouraged to incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet going forward. It can only be a good thing, as eating a food that is heavy in meat is not good for our bodies, resulting in everything from diabetes and cholesterol to high blood pressure. The trouble is that a lot of people find it too difficult to go vegan.

Fear not, though, as there are a lot of great restaurants and food establishments that are participating in Veganuary in Brighton. With that in mind, read more to discover everything you need to know about Veganuary in this part of the UK.

Veganuary does not need to end in January 

There are a lot of other restaurants in Brighton that are taking part in Veganuary, and the good news is that a lot of them will be extending their offerings so that they run through until the end of February as well. Bill’s is a prime example of this. They launched a special vegan menu on January 10th, running from Monday until Friday, from opening time until 7 pm. There are a lot of delicious dishes on the menu as well, including butternut squash, turmeric and coconut stew, and aubergine, lentil and chickpea dhal, as well as a tasty vegan duck salad.

A lot of people have also been enjoying the new vegan specials that have been popping up at Pabellon, which is a brand new establishment serving tapas.

It is an excellent option if you and your friends are looking to grab a bite to eat. Other restaurants where you will be able to find vegan menus specially created for Veganuary include Cin Cin and Silo. The latter has created a vegan list called Plant Food Wins Again, especially for Veganuary. There are some fantastic dishes on this menu that celebrate vegetables in all of their glory. Not only this but a zero-waste ethos has been brought to the list too, meaning unpopular vegetables or parts of plants are used that tend to be disregarded.
