LONDON – UNITED KINGDOM News release
Veganuary (the January awareness campaign to encourage new people to try vegan) is not confined to trendy, hipster parts of big cities. The exploding vegan animal welfare, health, and environmental trend have even reached the tiny Hampshire village of Beaulieu (Home to Lord Montagu and the National Motor Museum) as over 160,000 people sign up to Veganuary – The phenomenally successful ‘try vegan in January’ campaign.
Beaulieu Village boasts free Veganuary lunches, free goody bags, new vegan products being trialed and tested, new vegan menus.
“Vegan menus are becoming more and more commonplace as awareness is increasing that we need to reduce our meat and dairy consumption to lessen environmental destruction as well as reduce our health risks and be more respectful to animals. People are now finding they can have it all as delicious and healthy plant-based dishes are more widespread and recipes abundant.” explains Beaulieu Health & Nutrition Clinic founder and BB1 ‘Truth or Scare’ Nutritional Therapist Yvonne Bishop-Weston. “In the cities vegan options are commonplace, but it’s unusual to find an abundance of vegan choices in rural areas like Beaulieu. There’s no doubt we nearly all need to eat more vegetables and it’s hard to be vegan without eating more vegetables ”
Vegan & Veganuary – most popular year ever
This year Veganuary has trebled the number of sign-ups from 2017. There were around 50,000 last year and there have been over 160,000 Veganuary sign-ups already this year. Veganuary’s new vegan book is high on Amazon’s best selling lists. According to Google Trends interest in Vegan is 12 times what it was 5 years ago. Vegan interest has now doubled again in the last 6 months alone. Vegan Interest is more than double that of ‘vegetarian’. Sales of meat and dairy are falling whilst sales sales of Dairy free alternatives have gone through the roof. Tesco, Marks and Spencer, Sainsburys and Waitrose have all launched new vegan ranges for Veganuary and many restaurants such as Zizzis, Pizza Express and All Bar One have new Vegan menus ” says Consultant Chef at Beaulieu Natural Health & Nutrition Clinic, Tony Bishop-Weston.

UK Nutrient Deficiencies
Yvonne says “in the UK very few people manage to achieve optimal levels of vitamin D and essential fats and many people have an insufficient beneficial bacteria in their gut so we are grateful to health product manufacturer friends for providing free product to help New Forest residents get off to a healthier start in 2018.”
