What is Veganuary?
Veganuary (Vegan-January), a time to celebrate the vegan and a time for others to dip their toes into an unknown world of Jackfruit Tinga and Chocolate avocado mouse.

Whether you’re a fully-fledged vegan or an intrigued vegan novice, Crussh have got your back. With over 45 vegan Fit Food products gracing our shelves, sticking to your Veganuary resolution has never been easier.

Why try vegan?
There are plenty of reasons to try vegan. For some, a love of animals. For others the contribution they make to improving the environment. Did you know that animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, that’s more than the combined exhaust from all transportation across the world! This I reason in itself, but for many, going vegan is a sure-fire way to increase your 5 a day!

Often, we are put off by the myth that being vegan involves a lot of effort and hours of preparation but following a plant based diet has never been easier. There is now a vegan version of nearly everything.

Our shelves are packed with over 45 delicious vegan treats, from the high streets first vegan cheese toastie to a plant based protein super smoothie, we’ve got it covered! So, what’s on the menu?

Pre-workout super smoothie
Our first vegan, protein super smoothie has hit the menu just in time for Veganuary! Dubbed the Pre-Workout, our super smoothie is a specially designed combo of plant based, protein packed, energy boosting goodness. Try saying that with a mouthful!

Vegan ‘Cheese’ Toastie
We’ve cracked it, the high street’s first super melty, vegan ‘cheese’ toastie. Vegan cheddar-style ‘cheese’, red pepper tapenade, fire roasted red peppers & rocket served in our signature sourdough spelt toastie. Described by some as a pizza in a toastie, you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy this one.

Jackfruit Tinga
Jackfruit is fast becoming one of the most popular meat replacements in the vegan world. Don’t be fooled by its fruity name, jackfruit is a great flavour carrier and non-soy based meat replacement which counts towards your daily fruit and veg intake, win win! Our Jackfruit Tinga served with sweet potato mash, guacamole and slaw is an unsung hero, not only is this one vegan, it’s 5 of your 5 a day!

Vegan desserts
Our vegan dessert pots are a refined sugar free twist on some classic flavours. The line-up includes Key Lime Pie, Banoffee and Choc Avo Mousse alongside our newest recruit, the Winter Berry ‘Cheese’cake.

Energy balls 
Sweet and savoury alike, our selection of refined sugar free energy balls will keep your snack demon happy all week long. For the sweet toothed amongst us our Carrot Cake, Blueberry Lemon Chia and Cacao Hazelnut energy balls will keep your taste buds happy and your tummy from rumbling. For those who prefer a savour snack we have introduced SAVOURY energy balls to the market. Our Red Pepper & Smoked Paprika and Mango Chutney & Turmeric energy balls are the perfect pre-gym snack.

Bagels
Whether you’re a breakfast bagel-er, a lunch bagel-er, or some time in between bagel-er we’ve got your back. Not everything vegan is a vegetable and our Banana Almond Butter and Avocado & Goji Berry Chutney bagels will vouch for that.

These are just a few of our vegan heroes. You’ll find plenty more on our menu as well as some vegan recipes on the blog!

Top tip: If you don’t feel like you’re ready to take a leap into the deep end, start small and go vegan a couple of times a week. Chances are some of your favourite lunch pick-ups are already hitting the criteria!
