One thing I learnt this month is that being vegan doesn't mean being perfect. Just because you gave into temptation and ordered a hungover Dominos, or had a bit of your friend's chocolate birthday cake, doesn't mean you aren't a vegan. And in terms of caring for the planet and the animals that live on it, being vegan most of the time - even just some of the time - is far better than not doing it at all.

We're half-way through Veganuary, and for anyone struggling with foregoing the flesh, I'm here to suggest a compromise: part-time veganism. Yep, I know it's an oxymoron, and any all-singing, all-dancing, all-hemp wearing vegans who don't like hypocrisy should probably look away now.
