6 ways to celebrate Veganuary

With January commonly hailed as “Veganuary,” here are six ways to try your hand at being vegan — although consulting your doctor is key before you kickstart any new approach to food. 

  • Support a vegan business 

    Skin Story, available in Saudi Arabia, offers vegan beauty products. Their multi-stick collection includes makeup tools for lips, eyes and the face allowing for on-the-go application.

  • Wear vegan 

    As fashion trends shift to comfortable loungewear sets, regional brand Hana & Moha — available on Namshi —  offers joggers made using sustainable bamboo fibers to help conserve natural resources.

  • Drink vegan 

    Replace your fizzy drinks with coconut water to stay healthy this season. Rubicon’s flavorful vegan water, available in Saudi Arabia, is high in fiber, vitamin C and has no added sugar.

  • Eat vegan 

    Everything on the menu of Saudi Arabia’s Moon Shell is vegan friendly. They have savory foods, including rice rolls, and a range of beverages, including coffee and matcha tea.

  • Enjoy a vegan treat

    Being vegan doesn’t mean having to give up your favorite treats. Regional eatery Sugargram sells vegan bite sized cupcakes and mocktail gummies that will satisfy your sweet cravings. 

  • Cook vegan

    If you find it difficult to cook vegan recipes at home, author Parvin Razavi’s cookbook  “Vegan Recipes from the Middle East” could be just what you’re looking for.
