In Vegans We Love, we share some of our favorite plant-based blogs, websites, and organizations, and can’t-miss reads from each. Read past posts in the series here.
- One Arab Vegan Born in Egypt and now living and working in Bahrain, Nada became interested in veganism when she went to university in the UK. She started One Arab Vegan to share her foray into veganism, and she now uses the blog to write about leading a vegan lifestyle in the Arab world and to share plant-based recipes inspired by Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors.
- Recommended Recipe: This spinach-filled Vegan Spanakopita is a dairy-free take on the classic rolled Greek pastry, made with Dijon mustard, tamari, and nutritional yeast.
- The Little Foxes The inspiration behind the name of Ashlee Piper’s blog came from her grandmother, an opera singer whose stage name was Nina Renard—which, in French, loosely translates to “The Little Foxes.” Ashlee wanted her blog to embody some of her grandmother’s best traits—bold, fun-loving and authentic—and, along with food, she writes about vegan fashion, beauty, and other lifestyle topics.
- Recommended Recipe: Craving Mexican? This simple, creamy Mexican Elotes Bisque is a great soup for any season.
- Vegie Head Adele McConnell created her plant-based wellness blog to help show people that veganism doesn’t have to be bland, boring, or complicated. Visitors can choose recipes by skill level or by course, and those hoping to learn more about vegan cooking or just bolster their confidence in the kitchen can sign up for Vegie Head Academy, a plant-based online cooking course that includes daily modules that include PDF worksheets and videos, plus access to surprise goodies, beauty tips, interviews with leading members of the health food industry, and more.
- Recommended Recipe: A Sweet Potato Smoothie might sound like a bit of an oxymoron until you consider that sweet potatoes are a perfect alternative to bananas for cool, creamy drinks—they’re filling, mildly sweet, high in fiber, and packed with beta-carotene. It’s a delicious option for breakfast or a post-workout treat.
- The Vegan Chickpea Featuring product reviews, gift ideas, and profiles of retailers, this blog focuses on cruelty-free vegan beauty and fashion. However, Caitlin, the blogger behind Vegan Chickpea, also occasionally showcases cookbook reviews and her favorite plant-based recipes from other bloggers in the vegan community.
