Vegans in the United Kingdom would give up ice cream and cake, but would struggle without cheese.
Over a quarter believe vegans have limited options, and a third say they would struggle to come up with a fun breakfast option.
To maintain a vegan lifestyle, Brits would be willing to give up meat-flavored crisps, ice cream, and cake – but cheese and chicken would be difficult to give up.
According to a survey of 2,000 UK adults, nearly a third of the population is motivated to change their diet in order to be more environmentally friendly.
Chocolate, mayonnaise, and honey were among the foods that Brits were willing to give up the most.
However, dairy products appear to be a major factor in those struggling to stick to a vegan diet in January, with 40% saying they couldn’t live without cheese and 32% saying they couldn’t live without cow’s milk.
Nearly a third of respondents said they want to try more plant-based alternatives in 2022, and 29% said they want to make some parts of their diet vegan.
However, more than a quarter believe vegans have limited options, and 34% admit they’d struggle to come up with a vegan breakfast.
Eggs (30%), yoghurt (16%), sausages (15%), and bacon (14%) are all popular breakfast foods.
As a result, 25% of people believe that vegan alternatives aren’t as exciting when it comes to the first meal of the day.
More than half of those polled admitted to skipping breakfast on occasion, with 28% claiming it was due to a lack of time to prepare food despite the fact that breakfast takes only 12 minutes on average to prepare.
According to the OnePoll findings, 21% of people simply do not enjoy breakfast as a meal.
In the morning, more than half of women, compared to only 36% of men, say they are simply not hungry.
“It’s promising to see what people are willing to give up for the month of Veganuary,” said Tom Benton, General Manager of Nature’s Heart.
“The annual initiative is a fantastic way to encourage people to try new foods and to raise awareness about alternative diets.”
“According to the findings, people believe there are few options for creating an exciting and satisfying vegan meal, whether it’s for breakfast or dinner.
“We want to change people’s minds about vegan breakfasts – the top 20 foods show that people are eating less vegan breakfasts.”
