It's the time of year for detoxing. Whether you're attempting Dry January, aiming to stick to your New Year's Resolutions, or embracing Veganuary, the lifestyle overhaul is real (even if it's just for 31 days). It's not starting that's the issue, it's sticking to these pledges that is the key.

If you are trying a vegan diet, there are so many amazing recipes to try, but one sticking point for many new plant-based friends is the abandonment of cheese. In my opinion, it's the worst part about following a vegan diet. It's just something I honestly don't think I could ever give up. Gorgonzola, baked camembert, even good old cheddar — how could I ever say no? Turns out, I could just say yes to vegan cheese instead. So naturally I did, albeit after a little trial and error and a lot of taste tests.

Read through to discover 10 of the best vegan cheeses in the UK — from someone who really, really loves the actual stuff. You never know, Veganuary could become a more permanent fixture in your life!
