As Sober October draws to a close November opens the new challenge of the Veg Pledge! Why not get some help from Vegetarian and Vegan Society?
Veg Pledge is the newest fundraiser for Cancer Research, where participants can go meat-free for 30 days in order to raise money for a good cause.
If becoming vegetarian or vegan appeals to you but you don’t know where to start this could be the push you need. Taking the veggie plunge can be daunting so don’t do it alone and join Vegetarian and Vegan Society!
You don’t need to be fully committed to the vegetarian lifestyle to join, as membership is only £5 and they welcome open-minded meat eaters who just enjoy good vegetarian food. The society offers a variety of different socials such as visits to the best veggie restaurants in Leeds.
Past socials have included taking the society to Punk in Hyde Park and to Ikea to try the new veggie balls! In addition, the society run socials to farmers markets and food workshops to help you adjust to your new vegetarian lifestyle.
You can kickstart your vegetarian or vegan November with their Vegan Pot Luck on Monday 4th November. Try new food and swap recipes with experts to get inspiration for your month, or lifetime of vegetarianism ahead.
VegSoc are also hosting their own ‘Great Vegan Bake Off’ on Thursday the 14th November, proving that a vegan diet is far from being boring and just healthy food!
The Veg Pledge could be the start of a whole new lifestyle, as you can raise money for a good cause,
broaden your food horizons and make new friends through attending VegSoc socials.
