Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2018 and for many doing Veganuary, welcome to veganism! This year marks a new era of blogging from us over at Vegan Southampton. When I say ‘us’ I’m typically referring to myself and the assemblage of friends and supporters who regularly contribute to our community.

VS Founder Rosie. Hair by Becki at The Organic Hair Lounge in Shirley.

To introduce myself, my name is Rosie. I started Vegan Southampton as a community project back in May 2017. I had just moved back to my home town following a 6 year stint in Bournemouth and Bristol, and was in need of a tour  guide. In creating Vegan Southampton, I hoped to supply a platform to gauge and guide demand for vegan options across the city. If you’re visiting our site for the first time, you can find a directory of businesses based on your location using the navigation bar at the head of the browser. Of course, the listings are constantly mutating, so any information you can contribute will infinitely help out your peers. Just shoot us a message on Facebook or Twitter, or email us at info@vegansouthampton.com.

For whatever reason you are vegan or thinking about going vegan – in 2018 you can’t go wrong. According to a whole bunch of stats I found online (and a well-timed post on my friend’s website Live Kindly) veganism is undoubtedly on the grow. It is estimated that the UK population is currently made up of vegans by 2%. This seems small but equates to 542,000 individuals at the last official estimation, which happened over 1.5 years ago and has since grown exponentially! Even a quick Google search yields promising top results.

For me personally, I am entering my eighth year of veganism (I’m still alive! Goodness knows how without any protein…!?) and have always been in it for ethical reasons. So this year to coincide with other people’s Veganuary efforts, I’m attempting a healthy diet kick. I have always considered my diet to be healthier than others, but weighing in at 11.5 stone, and feeling increasingly like I’m pushing 40 years old when the reality is 30, I certainly am not eating the best of what the vegan diet has to offer. To kick me off, I’m trialing the Free Soul diet supplement for women.

new-hero-coll-vega-01_1060x1060Their Vegan Collection features their Vegan Protein Blend, supplementary tablets designed to balance physical, psychological and hormonal health (WHERE HAVE THESE BEEN ALL MY LIFE?) and a wake and sleep tea brew to encourage healthy energy and sleep patterns.

Alongside a daily shake and the incorporation of some balanced dinners and gym time, I am going to be doing a dry January. To accompany my excessive diet, I also do enjoy a drink, so a welcome break is just what the doctor prescribed.

Have you had any success with vegan friendly diet supplements? Let us know how you got on in the comments below, and I’ll keep you updated of my progress via Instagram.

I wish good things to all in this new year, but to my vegan kin, I wish THE BEST. Keep an eye on our social channels for guidance and support throughout January and beyond.
