Start 2021 the Bonsan way: plant-powered, simple and insanely tasty.
Bonsanuary: like Veganuary, but Bonsan style. You know we’re all about making it easier to live a plant-powered life. So us + a month dedicated to trying out a vegan lifestyle is pretty much a match made in heaven.
If a month thriving as a vegan hero converts you to the cause longer term, great! Even if not, the benefits of a single month of choosing to eschew animal products are significant. It’s a win-win.
Better blood sugar and cholesterol
Nutritionists say1 that switching to a vegan diet can reduce blood sugar levels and cholesterol within a month.
Taste for fatty foods?
Even a few weeks without animal products high in salt and fat can change your taste-bud sensitivity to fats2.
A fibre-rich diet boosts your microbiome, but make sure you’re changing up your veg too, to see profound changes diversity and gut-health within days3. Aim to try and eat 30 different types of plant a week!
