Celebrate World Vegan Month with Peas!

28 October, 2020

Celebrating World Vegan Month can be a fun activity for the whole family and provide the perfect opportunity to try out new recipes! World Vegan Month falls in November every year and is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the vegan diet and how you can get protein from tasty veggies namely, delicious peas! It’s important to remember, that making small changes to your diet can go a long way, and you don’t need to completely cut out animal produce to if you don’t want to.

We know that it can be a little hard to figure out where to start, so we’ve pulled together a list of ways you can get involved along with some juicy facts and recipes to help inspire and educate you. First things first, let’s talk about peas – that’s why you’re here isn’t it?

Are peas a good vegan protein source?

Peas are a fantastic form of vegan protein, with just a 100-calorie serving containing more protein than a whole egg along with lots of nutrients like iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, thiamine and phosphorous. Pea protein is a common vegan protein source that it often used in vegan protein powders and even in some meat substitutes, versatile right?

How can I get involved in World Vegan Month?

No matter how big or how small you want to go, there are lots of ways for the whole family to get involved. Some suggestions from the Yes Peas! team are below…

  • Take Meat Free Mondays that step further and go vegan
  • Host a vegan bake off and bake some tasty treats
  • Get cooking with the kids and experiment with veggies
  • Try out some vegan goodies including chocolate and biscuits (in moderation of course) and host a vegan movie night
  • Or even go the whole of November fully vegan and you could also raise money for charity whilst doing it by getting sponsored by friends and family

It’s still possible to create super tasty and nutritious meals that are vegan, we’ve popped a couple of our yummy recipes below, but you could also have a go at experimenting with smoothies (frozen peas can make a tasty protein packed smoothie, they’re naturally sweet adding flavour and nutrients) and adding into your favourite dishes like vegan pesto and bolognese!
