So you’ve decided to give vegan a go, and sign up to Veganuary 2018? If, like me, you love using Instagram as a social platform, then there is a lot of vegan love over there. Get stuck in with hashtags, #vegan is an obvious one, but be aware that there may be a lot of unrelated content on that hashtag because people will use it to widen the reach of their post, even if the post itself has nothing to do with veganism. #veganrecipe #veganbaking and #whatfatveganseat are all good hashtags to spend time on though. Of course, use the #Veganuary hashtag – follow other people taking part in Veganuary 2018, comment on their pictures and make friends.
Here’s my pick of established vegan Instagram accounts to follow today.
An obvious one, but make sure you’re following the Veganuary account for ideas, inspiration and fellow new vegans.

Is that really vegan?” Accidentally Vegan share all the supermarket finds that you wouldn’t necessarily think were “vegan” but that just so happen to be free of animal products – this could be your Veganuary lifeline, keeping you up to date on what biscuits, crisps, chocolate you can still enjoy.
