January is the best month to try new diets and get a healthy routine going - which is one reason why "Veganuary" is so popular! What is "Veganuary?" More or less, "Veganuary" is for someone new to the vegan diet who wants to use January as a test run for a vegetable-based diet. If you're looking to commit to a vegan lifestyle, this is an amazing time to do it. Despite the BBQ and fried food craze in Texas, Houston is a great city to be vegan! I've created a list of some of the best vegan friendly spots in town that will 100% convince you to go vegan year round!
