Liverpool restaurants you should visit if you’re doing Veganuary
Veganuary

It’s that time of year again when people are ditching chicken for seitan, swapping out their milk for nut based alternatives, all to change up their lifestyle for a month… or maybe even for good!

More than 1,610 new vegan products and menus were launched for Veganuary in 2023 – the plant-based diet is a way of protecting the environment, preventing animal suffering, and a way to improve health.

So where can you go in Liverpool for great vegan food? Check out these places we have put together to inspire you!
