Take the 21 Day Vegan Challenge

Our 21 Day Easy Vegan Challenge is designed to help you on a pathway to a kinder, healthier and more planet-friendly lifestyle.

Every day you’ll receive support emails with meal ideas, recipes, tips, nutritional info, a list of what to shop for and more. We will show you convenient substitutes so you can continue enjoying the foods you love, plus answer all your burning questions about protein and what you’ll do when you eat out. And for some inspiration, we will introduce you to some Kiwi champs from all walks of life, who have chosen to be vegan too!

NEW – we have now added a dedicated Facebook group for live support from vegan mentors and dieticians.

You’ll find 21 days is the perfect length of time to allow your taste buds to change and for new eating habits to form! So grab a friend, your partner or a family member and sign up now! Good luck!

Resources for going vegan

Becoming vegan can seem like a big change to begin with. You may feel like there are just too many foods you need to give up – this is simply not true! You will soon discover all kinds of vegan treats and recipes to substitute for your usual favourites, and realise that a vegan version can be made of most of them.

Today, compared with say 10 (or even 5) years ago, there is a much greater range of vegan products readily available in your local supermarket. There are vegan versions of sausages and burgers, cheese, milk, ice cream, chocolate and yoghurt, just to name a few. More new products come out all the time, so keep checking your local stores.

To help you change to a vegan lifestyle we have compiled a list of resources and guides. For any suggestions of content you would like to see then please contact us.
