I'm a Glasgow vegan and these are my favourite restaurants

January is here, the dawn of a new year driving a new wave of commitments to take action on ambitions, balance out holiday indulgences and set ourselves in good stead for the months that follow. Naturally this period lends itself to a temporary but sharp rise in veganism where, for reasons including health, development and welfare, participants cut animal products from their diets. We have accustomed to this phenomenon in recent years and labelled it ‘Veganuary’.

It was Veganuary 2021 I first took part in, though already vegetarian I found it particularly daunting stripping dairy from my routine. However, by the time February came following weeks of experimenting with alternative products I’d grown familiar with this new lifestyle and decided to make it permanent.

Three years later and I have discovered the best plant based dishes Glasgow has to offer. If you’ve decided to cut out animal products this month then here's some local food and drink inspiration.
