This blog post is written from my own personal experience as a self-described vegan-ish flexitarian, with a lot of help from Sara Botero‘s insightful new guidebook The Essential Vegan Toolkit. I’m not an expert on this topic and I do not claim to speak for everybody!
While some of us are still trying to wake up after the holidays, January has decided rather rudely to continue moving forward – leaving us nearly two weeks into 2020 already! And if you made a new year’s resolution, there’s a good chance you’re struggling with it at this point. An estimated 80% of resolutions are failed or forgotten by February each year. There are a lot of reasons for this, a huge one being that many people see a one-time step off the so-called righteous path as a reason to quit entirely.
This is a special guest post by Tomi Makanjuola, aka The Vegan Nigerian. If you like this recipe, you should definitely check out Tomi’s cookbook, Plantain Cookbook, featuring 40+ vegan plantain recipes!
To celebrate Veganuary 2020, we’ve interviewed our resident vegan activist Sara Botero! As well as working with Liminal 11 on social media, book design and production and much more, Sara is a vegan activist, illustrator and creator of The Essential Vegan Toolkit (just £9.99 during January 2020).
‘Doodling rainbows reminds me that storms will always end, and the light will return. Flowers and bumblebees remind me of how important each one of us are in this world.’
It’s a new year, and for many it’s a time of renewal and working toward a better relationship with themselves. We could all probably do with some self-compassion after the excess and family tensions that often come with the holidays, coupled with the deep darkness we experience in the winter (in our part of the world, at least!).
That’s why we’ve published 365 Gentle Reminders (just £9.99 during January 2020), a page-a-day book of positive, uplifting reminders illustrated by the inspiring Natalie Dormady. After battling with mental illnesses, Natalie found her passion for art while on her recovery journey, and she’s been sharing her Gentle Reminders on Instagram for a few years now.
