20 of the Best Vegan Blogs to Follow

I know transitioning to a vegan diet can be a little intimidating at first, luckily vegan blogs offer a wealth of free information and it’s a great place to start. They all post inspiring, beautiful, healthy recipes and support them with lovely writing and fantastic photography. Food blogging takes an incredible amount of work, so head on over and show these bloggers some love!

1. Vegan Richa

Amazing recipes, spectacular photography. Vegan Richa is one of the best in the vegan blogging world and I can’t get enough. Buy the Vegan Richa cookbook.

2. Pickles & Honey

As I continue to learn and improve my food photography it’s places like Pickles and Honey that continue to inspire me. I love her style of photography and her recipes are just to die for. She aims to brighten your day and help support you in creating a happier life. I’d certainly say she’s pointing me in that direction!

3. From My Bowl

I love the recipes and videos that Caitlin shares. They’re easy to make, healthy, budget-friendly and mostly all gluten, oil and refined sugar-free. Check out her YouTube channel for tons of resources on a vegan lifestyle as well as cooking videos and more.

4. Vegan Yack Attack

When I stop by Jackie’s blog to see what’s new all I want to do is EAT ALL THE FOOD, all the beautifully photographed, plant-based, delicious food. Check out these Buffalo Chickpea Nachos, this Deconstructed Falafel Bowl and this Cranberry Walnut Vegan Cheese Ball to see what I mean.

5. Fork & Beans

Proceed with caution. Too much delicious ahead, and guess what..it’s all egg, dairy and gluten-free. Watch for Healthy Ice Cream Sandwiches, Vegan Butterfingers, Gluten-Free Vegan Cranberry Bliss Bars…you’ve been warned.

6. Coconut & Berries

Every time I visit Emma’s blog I end up going on a pinning spree. Things like Vanilla Almond Butter Fudge, Chickpea Salad Stuffed Avocados and Butternut Squash with Pesto keep me coming back for more.

7. Minimalist Baker

Although Minimalist Baker didn’t start as an exclusively vegan blog, I believe today all their recipes are plant-based are and you can easily find them all under the vegan recipes category. The amazing duo is one of my biggest food photography crushes, check out their Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles, Banana Crumb Muffins or this No-Bake PB & J Pie to see why. Buy the Minimalist Baker cookbook!

8. Oh She Glows

If you’re a blog reader, you’ve most certainly heard of Oh She Glows. Angela is a healthy vegan eating superstar and anyone and everyone can find something they love on her site. I’ve made many of her recipes and they’ve all been fantastic. Buy the Oh She Glows cookbook!

9. Sprouted Kitchen

I’ve got a big time blog crush on Sprouted Kitchen. I absolutely adore Hugh’s photography, the images always tell a lovely story with every recipe. I know how much work and patience it takes to photograph a dish along the way, so I really appreciate seeing it from the duo behind Sprouted Kitchen. I love Sara’s food philosophy too, you can read more about it on her About page.

10. Allyson Kramer

I’m pretty sure Allyson is a food lighting master, her photographs are amazing. Oh ya, and the recipes. You don’t want to miss those. Just take a look at this spectacular Roasted Beet and Apple Soup or these Soft and Spicy Ginger Cookies.

11. My Whole Food Life

I dare you to visit Melissa’s lovely blog and not drool just a little bit. I mean come on, Flourless Cookie Dough Truffles, Superfood Chocolate Bark and No-Bake Snickerdoodles? This vegan girl knows where it’s at.

12. Blissful Basil

Ashley posts wonderful vegan recipes with beautiful photos and clear instructions. Her site is one of my favorites.

13. Sweet Simple Vegan

Sweet Simple Vegan is run by a vegan couple who share fun, fresh, healthy and simple recipes.

14. I Love Vegan 

I Love Vegan is a vegan lifestyle blog that not only has a ton of wholesome recipes but also features a lot of great how-tows and tips for eating a vegan diet.

15. Healthy Happy Life

I’ve made many recipes from her site and loved them all. Buy the Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen cookbook.

16. Rawsome Vegan Life

I’m pretty sure Emily is a vegan raw food genius. If you need dessert, her blog is always a good place to start looking. She’s also my food photography hero, I could browse her gorgeous posts all day long.

17. Keepin’ It Kind

Sugar-Free Red Velvet Waffles with Cream Cheese Icing. I don’t think I need to say more. Buy the Keepin’ it Kind cookbook.

18. Hell Ya It’s Vegan

I think you could find all the vegan recipes you’ll ever need on Claryn’s site. Things like Walnut Lentil Beet Burgers and Cranberry Scones with Lemon Glaze will keep you coming back for more and since she posts a lot of “veganized” versions of classic dishes it’s a great place for new vegans.

19. Connoisseurus Veg

I just couldn’t leave Alissa out of this list, I mean just look at that header. How awesome is that? But don’t worry she follows up the T-Rex with plenty of delicious recipes. You won’t be disappointed.

20. Fragrant Vanilla Cake

No list of vegan food blogs could be complete without Fragrant Vanilla Cake. If you’re in need of dessert, this is the place to go. Amy is the raw dessert queen and I’m pretty sure she can do no wrong. Her recipes are creative, beautiful, nutritious and made from whole food ingredients.
