Jimi Blue Ochsenknecht would like to eat vegan in January – which recipes he is looking forward to and why cheating is okay too.

Eat more consciously, lose weight, do something good for people, animals and the environment – there is one resolution that unites all of these New Year’s classics and in which half the internet also participates: the veganuary.

Under the motto, people who have not yet been vegan try to eat completely without animal products for the first month of the year. According to a current survey by Lieferando, more than 74 percent of Germans can imagine doing without animal products for at least a few meals a month. In the social networks, the veganuary has become a tradition, and many stars also take part. In 2022, Jimi Blue Ochsenknecht (30) will be among them.

Jimi Blue also makes it for his daughter

His daughter Snow, who was born in October, has also changed his view of topics such as sustainability and nutrition, says the World Food Forum ambassador: “Suddenly there is a little person who fully relies on me . Sustainability has always been important to me – but now even more so because I do it for them too.”

The actor and musician likes to be in the kitchen privately, as he says: “Cooking relaxes me and I love being creative and surprising my friends and family with delicious food.” With “Cooking is easy”, the 30-year-old has even brought his own cookbook onto the market. Vegetarian dishes are often on his table – “but not eating animal dishes for such a long time is new and I’m really excited.” In January he wants to experiment with things like tofu, jackfruit or portobello mushrooms.

The amateur chef will certainly continue to cook some of the dishes he discovered in January, says Ochsenknecht. If there is no time to cook for yourself, the busy entrepreneur is happy to have something delivered. Among them is his own bowl creation, which he developed for Lieferando: The “Jimi Orange Bowl”, which can be ordered exclusively in January via Lieferando in cooperation with the “taste&soul” delivery service. In it, tofu, mango, basmati rice, avocado, corn, cherry tomatoes and edamame meet the taste of lime, coriander, coconut and teriyaki – all vegan, of course.

“If you cheated, it’s not a drama either”

“I love challenges – I like to try new things, especially when cooking,” says the actor, looking forward to January. And reassures all those who are afraid of not being able to completely do without animal products for a month: “Just try it. If you then cheat, it’s no drama either.” It’s not about bans, “but more about appreciating the value of meat and fish again.” He will not resist a juicy steak or a salmon from the smoker in the future either. “It has to be something special that you treat yourself to.”
