IT has been well established that the opening month of the year is ‘Veganuary’, but often those keen to try it out are unsure where to visit to get their non-animal product food fix.

And for those that are unaware, the month promotes and educates about veganism by encouraging people to follow a vegan lifestyle which includes plant-based foods for the month of January.

So, we thought we would run through some options across town as to where you can visit to help you go green this January.

Dorado Lounge

The Market Place eatery has been a firm favourite in the green scene in Warrington.

On the menu for vegan mains, it offers a Mediterranean salad bowl, bombay sweet potato and lentil curry, a beyond cheeseburger and Mexican superbowl.

That is in addition to brunch options, tapas, sandwiches, sides and puddings too.

Wholesome Junkies

The stall in Warrington Market is renowned for its junk food, but it does offer a familiar alternative to get you involved in veganism.

It has also collaborated with CB Sushi to celebrate Veganuary with dishes such as crispy shredded beef with loaded Korean mac ‘n’ cheese, hoisin ‘duck’ with loaded fries as well as a BBQ rib ‘n’ saucy burger.

Chelsea Campbell, who owns the business, feels that the foods they do are very accessible.

She said: “There is more intrigue if it’s something they are familiar with already. We do a lot of mock meats which are very, very similar to meat.

“However, mock meats aren’t for everyone and we do a lot of vegetable-based food. There is a lot of options so it’s a nice transition.”

Brewed Boy Coffee Co and Vegan Bites

If drinks with a cake are more your thing, look no further than the only fully vegan coffee shop and bakery in town.

Brewed Boy Coffee is currently based at the Golden Square until the end of January.

Customers can enjoy any hot drink and any bake from its counter for £5.

Planet Doughnut

If you have more of a sweeter tooth, the Golden Square shop has you covered.

They are offering a ‘dough it yourself’ vegan box which comes with the doughnut, chocolate and strawberry icing, sprinkles and a selection of sweet tweets to make your own vegan doughnut.

Olive Tree Brasserie

The Stockton Heath restaurant is giving away free vegan food across the month with any drinks order of £6 or more.

Customers visiting the brasserie from Sunday – Friday in January can try one dish per person. It is a great way to give Veganuary a try for the first time.

Founder and owner Dean Wilson said: “I’m ready to lead by example, making considerable eco-friendly improvements across my restaurants and educating my team so that they can, in turn, make positive lifestyle changes.’’
