Discover Our Vegan Starter Bundle

Veganuary is in full swing, but this year, it’s looking a little different. Restaurant meals are currently off the menu for many of us, and not all of us have access to a local shop with an extensive collection of vegan-friendly foods.

 

If your motivation isn’t as high as you expected this January or if you’re unsure where to start this year after a change in your circumstances, we’re here to help. From the foods to keep your cupboards stocked with to our Vegan Starter Bundle, there’s plenty of support for you to still achieve your vegan goals this New Year.

We recommend making sure you’ve got a good stock of these ingredients so you can easily rustle up tasty and nutritious vegan-friendly meals to keep yourself on track this Veganuary:

 

  • Lentils
  • Pulses, such as chickpeas, kidney beans and black beans
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Herbs and spices
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Rice
  • Couscous
  • Oats

  • Plant-based milk, such as almond, soy, coconut or oat milk
  • Vegetable oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Fresh fruit and veg

When you eliminate meat and dairy from your diet completely, you need to make sure you’re still getting enough iron, calcium and other important vitamins and minerals from alternative sources. At Garden of Life, you’ll find plant-based iron and calcium supplements, while our Vegan Starter Bundle is designed to provide you with some vegan essentials for kickstarting your vegan lifestyle.

 

What’s in Our Vegan Starter Bundle?

 

The Garden of Life Vegan Starter Bundle is designed to make the transition to veganism easier, while making sure your body is getting more of the vitamins and protein it needs to stay healthy.

 

 

This vegan bundle contains three great products to incorporate in your daily routine this Veganuary and beyond: an organic, vegan protein powder, a vitamin B12 spray and a vegan vitamin D3 spray.

 

Organic Vitamin B12 Spray

 

Our mykind Organics Vitamin B12 Spray is made from whole food ingredients to provide the vitamin B12 that many people typically consume from animal products.

 

 

This plant-based vitamin spray is designed to support an active lifestyle to help you to sustain extraordinary health thanks to extraordinary ingredients.

 

Vitamin B12 can help to aid concentration and support energy levels throughout the day, as well as supporting metabolism and heart health. Vitamin B12 contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and to normal energy-yielding metabolism.

 

Vegan Vitamin D3 Spray

 

Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and to the normal function of the immune system. People typically consume vitamin D from calcium, but our mykind Organics Vitamin D3 Spray is 100% vegan and has a great-tasting vanilla flavour, with no added sugars.

 

 

Natural sunlight is also a good source of vitamin D, but this can be hard to access in a typical January, let alone one spent in lockdown, making this spray a great choice for vegans and meat-eaters alike.

 

Organic Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder

 

Beans, lentils and plant-based milks are all good sources of vegan-friendly protein, but many vegans also use protein powder to up their intake further.

 

Garden of Life’s Raw Organic All-in-One Vanilla Protein Powder is 100% vegan and organic, made from whole food ingredients that can each be traced back to the seed or soil they came from.

 

 

Our all-in-one protein powder can help to build and repair muscle post-workout thanks to the protein and vitamin D it contains, as protein promotes growth in muscle mass, while vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function. Protein powder can also help you to stay full, supporting healthy weight maintenance.
