Try These Limited-Edition Vegan Items in LA This Veganuary
Most of them are discounted, too!
There are so many reasons we love January. For one, it’s the start of a new year which motivates people to set positive intentions, break old habits, and try new things! It’s also Veganuary, a 31-day pledge coordinated by the titular nonprofit organization to encourage people to try a vegan diet for the month of January and beyond. To support the movement, restaurants and brands team up with Veganuary to release new vegan dishes and products. Whether you’re a longtime herbivore or are testing out plant-based eating for the first time, you’re going to want to try these limited-edition vegan items in LA this Veganuary!
