Inspiration for Veganuary


Going vegan for a month or even cooking a few vegan meals a week can be hard if you are used to cooking with meat and dairy, so I thought I would share some good resources for you to get started on eating more vegan!

I am not a vegan. I tend to avoid labels all together since I do not like it. The second you commit to a label you risk getting critiqued and I do not enjoy that. If I am to label myself, I usually go for pescatarian. I eat about 90% vegetarian with the last 10% being a little bit of seafood (which I can rarely afford, it’s mostly when visiting family) and very, very occasionally a little bit of meat. In addition to eating mostly vegetarian I eat a lot of vegan, basically half of what I eat is vegan. I am always up for trying new vegan recipes to add to my growing repertoire!

5 Favorite Vegan Bloggers & YouTubers

Since I like cooking vegan I have during the years found some really inspiring people that share their recipes with the world. Here are some of them:

The First Mess

I love the balance in this blog. Here you can find everything from healthy juices to sweet cinnamon buns, all vegan! She seems to have found that slow life when it comes to food and it gives a lovely feel to the entire blog.

Deliciously Ella

Ella went from being very ill, to healing with foods, growing her blog to huge followings, to actually opening her own deli and shop. I have always loved her colourful recipes and that you can find how-tos for how to make vegan basics as well as more advanced recipes.

Oh She Glows

Angela’s blog was the first vegan blog I discovered a few years back. In addition to being plant-based, most of her recipes are also free of gluten, soy, and processed foods. When I am looking for tasty, healthy recipes this is the first one I check.

Avantgarde Vegan

This is the only guy on the list. It is also the only YouTuber (even though he has a webpage as well). I generally prefer to read than to listen and watch (like YouTube), but this guy is so fun to watch so I have made an exception. He has a huge library of videos and he makes vegan dishes you could never believe were actually vegan!

Simple Vegan Blog

This is a great resource for any type of food you can imagine in a vegan form. The recipe library is extensive and full of tasty and simple vegan foods!

Extra one:

Minimalist Baker

I added an extra one for the list, a baker. If you struggle with baking vegan this is the blog for you! This blog has been going for a long time and you can find mostly anything on there (she also does post regular meals and not only sweets).


10 Tasty Vegan Recipes to try out this Month

Below I have assembled some really nice recipes that you could try out during Veganuary or whenever you feel like a nice vegan meal. Making soups and stews or dishes from Asian or Latin cuisine are my biggest go-tos. Many Asian kitchen are traditionally vegan and I tend to eat a lot of vegan versions of tacos and South American food because I love the flavours and you can easily make them vegan.
