Veganuary is well under way and we want to give you a few of the tips and tricks you’ll need to make the rest of 2017 successfully meat-free!
Here’s our ultimate guide to the essential (and a few of our favourite non-essential) vegan best bits, from delicious food to compassionate fashion must-haves, to the skincare and body care items you need to live your life the animal friendly way!
The big one! What you eat will be one of the biggest changes you make if you’re going vegan. Here are our absolute favourite, delicious vegan alternatives...
Meat: Going meat-free not only means you’re helping prevent harm to animals, it also has a plethora of health benefits and reduces your carbon footprint dramatically (triple win!). Here are our delectable alternatives for an unbeatable and planet-friendly dinner.
PAIR WITH: Sweet potato mash and a huge pile of roast root veg for a winter-warming comfort food night in!
PAIR WITH: Stir fried veg, rice noodles and soy sauce for a super speedy, family-friendly weeknight supper... that’s completely meat-free!
Dairy: Simply cutting out dairy has been shown to have amazing effects on your health and the planet! Our most bought dairy alternatives are:
PAIR WITH: Frozen berries, 2 bananas and half a fresh mango, whizzed up in a blender for the perfect nutrient-rich start to your day!
PAIR WITH: Two slices of toasted spelt, sliced cucumber and a sprinkling of chia seeds, for a power-packed mid-afternoon snack to keep you going right through till dinner time.
One of the most exciting parts of being vegan is discovering all the amazing cruelty free clothing brands out there! On our wishlist this month is:
PAIR WITH: Black straight leg trousers, pointed, faux leather brogues and our berry red Rosehip Colour Click lipstick for instant city-break style.
PAIR WITH: Almost anything! A faux leather jacket is a wardrobe staple that you can wear with a light floral dress in the spring, or jeans and a snuggly rollneck jumper in winter for cool girl edge without the cruelty.
PAIR WITH: An oversized white shirt, blue jeans, a fine gold necklace and flawless skin, courtesy of our Pure Effects BB serum, for relaxed Sunday brunch vibes at your local vegan spot (our fave is Kin Cafe).
There are so many essentials we use, day in, day out, that aren’t commonly cruelty free. Alternatives that fit into your lifestyle are often hard to find, so here’s our quick rundown of the top daily essentials that you can use day after day, with zero guilt.
BEAUTY AND SKINCARE:
Skincare is the name of the game here at Tropic, and our entire 100-strong range is completely vegan and cruelty free. With products you can use no matter your skincare needs, be it acne, psoriasis, fine lines or wrinkles, plus everything in between, we’ve curated our edit of our best all-rounders so you can get the glow while staying true to you!
PAIR WITH: Correcting Cream Concealer blended with a clean ring finger and Soft Focus Perfecting Powder, softly patted over your nose, forehead and eyelids with a Bamboo Kabuki Brush to minimise oiliness while maximising natural glow.
Smoothing Cleanser Complexion Purifier
PAIR WITH: Our Vitamin Toner and Skin Revive for the ultimate, natural three step routine, leaving you with soft, clean skin that just keeps getting better and better! Our best-selling ABC Collection gives you all three of these natural beauties, as well as a free Face Smooth.
