Veganuary, which combines the words “vegan” and “January,” is an annual challenge that encourages people to go vegan for the month. In this episode of the Xtalks Food Podcast, Sydney talks about how the Veganuary movement got started in 2014 and how far it has come since then. She also discusses what some major food and beverage brands are doing for Veganuary 2022. The team discusses whether they would participate in the challenge and how difficult it could be depending on one’s access to vegan food.
Also, in this episode, Sydney introduces the team to a new better-for-you pasta called LEANguini. Introduced by fast-casual pasta chain Noodles & Company, LEANguini has far fewer carbs and far more protein than traditional wheat noodles, all while maintaining the same taste and appearance as traditional linguine. Noodles & Company created three signature dishes with the new pasta, and it can be substituted in any made-to-order dish. The team expresses their desire to try the better-for-you pasta, but wonders whether the $8 to $10 surcharge would discourage others from doing so.
