Now that January is finished, it’s time to recap the 31 Days of Vegan Challenge.

Read on to learn about who participated, the most popular recipes, and learn who won the fabulous kitchen prizes.

Can you believe January is already over?! I can. I mean, winter months move real slowly.

BUT, the 31 Days of Vegan Challenge felt like it flew by!

And, I wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for your participation in this challenge! The response was overwhelming and, on behalf of the whole Rainbow Plant Life team, I am so grateful to have so many of you on board with us on this journey.

Here are a just a few numbers that capture the scale of your involvement.

  • 4,340 email submissions received for the grand prize. Incredible!
  • 2,438 Instagram entries for the weekly prizes.

Thank you to everyone who made this challenge a success by participating. Whether you’re a seasoned vegan or just exploring plant-based eating, we hope you found inspiration in our recipes and are feeling more confident in incorporating vegan dishes into your routine.

We would also like to extend a special thank you to those who submitted their photos and participated in our drawings. We appreciate your continued support and engagement. It was such a joy to see a glimpse of your experience in the kitchen.

    I’d LOVE to have the Veggie Challenges more often! It really helps keep me accountable.
    Btw, your recipes and YouTube channel are amazing!! 🥰

      Hi Judeanne, thanks for the feedback! Have you been participating in the RPL Recipe Club each month?

      We’re so glad you love the recipes and videos :)

    I’ve been unhealthy all my life, and I just starting checking out veganism. I found this blog by chance, and I’m happy I did. Makes me realize that there are more options than just eating plain veggies. Thank you.

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi Luigi, we’re so happy you found our blog as well! Our main goal is to make people realize how delicious eating vegan can be. A few fan favorite recipes I love and recommend you try first are the red lentil curry, red lentil bolognese, and tofu scramble. We hope you love them :)

    I loved this challenge! I started a little late, but it was fun seeing the new recipes each day! Thank you for creating this. :)

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Better late than never, Audrey! You’re very welcome for the challenge, we’re delighted to hear you enjoyed it :)

  4. Niki

    I tried quite a few of the recipes and they were all a success. Thank you for this challenge!
    The only improvement point is that if you want to cook something you just received, you always have to do extra groceries and it makes it more difficult to execute. Is it maybe an idea to send out a few recipes together and include some sort of a shopping list for people who like to meal plan?

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi Niki, so good to hear you enjoyed the recipes. Thank you for your feedback, we’ll take it into consideration whenever we do the next challenge!

  5. Jen

    Thank you for all the work it took to make this challenge a success! We made some great food and memories. Definitely interested in further challenges; it gave me the motivation to actually get in the kitchen and try some new things that I wouldn’t have otherwise.

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      That’s what we like to hear, Jen! You are very welcome for the challenge, it wouldn’t have been nearly as successful if it weren’t for readers like you who participated! :)

  6. Elle

    This was the best Vegan Challenge that I have participated in, thus far. It was very well laid out, awesome recipes, beautiful photos and great cooking videos (who could ask for more?). Thank-you Nisha for all your hard work; you’re a Gem! ❤️
    I have one question for you:
    How long will we have access to these fantastic recipes and cooking videos?

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Hi Elle, we’re so pleased you found the challenge fun! And these recipes are actually up on the site year-round! :)

  7. Sandy

    Love a challenge. More please 😊

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      We’re glad you do, Sandy! And we are definitely thinking of doing more! :)

    Three years a plant based diet. Your channel and social media was a leg up for my health and vegan diet. I have prepared many of your recipes and have learned from you. Thank you for bringing along the world and improving my health.

    1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

      Congratulations on 3 years, Charlene! That’s no small feat. We’re delighted to hear you’ve learned a lot from the channel and are grateful for you following along!
