5 Vegan Bloggers Who Will Inspire Your Vegan Lifestyle

Drained after a long day and don't know what to cook? Instagram is a helpful resource to find simple, delicious vegan recipes.


Cooking is the last thing any of us what to have to think about after a long day studying and working. Deciding what to cook can seem daunting, but nothing is more annoying than coming home exhausted and having to muster up the energy to cook a healthy meal.

By now, there are hundreds of Instagram bloggers who have perfected vegan versions of all our favorite conventional, non-vegan meals. Going vegan, I instantly missed smoothies, pancakes, cookies, cream-based pasta, ramen, and mac and cheese; the list could go on forever! You never realize how much dairy is present in much of the foods we eat until you cut it out of your diet.

As soon as I committed to a vegan diet, I quickly scoured Instagram for cooking inspiration. I have been following these five creative and relatable Instagram bloggers for the past three years. The aesthetic and simplicity of vegan cooking have made me realize I have a larger passion for cooking, as a stress relief and art form, than I thought possible.

1. Minimalist Baker

Dana is a food photographer, offering online courses, as well as cookbooks. What I love about Minimalist Baker is she is constantly updating and modifying her recipes. So, if you're in college, on a tight budget, there are hundreds of recipes to choose from on her blog, free! These recipes focus on fresh, minimal ingredients that are relatively environmentally friendly. This blog focuses on vegan cuisine, with a large emphasis on gluten-free! If you have any questions or cooking advice Dana is quick to reply.

2. Tayler McKellop

Tayler is by far the most relatable plan-based blogger I've come across. She's in her early 20s, attending college, and is a realist when it comes to health and wellness. Her recipes are prominently vegan, and I've found that her non-vegan recipes are super easy to modify. She emphasizes on body positivity; nourishing your body with natural ingredients.

3. plantbasedbaee

If you're new to vegan cooking, Laura's blog is a great resource for meat and dairy substitutes. These substitutes are beneficial during the transition phase, until you learn how to receive protein and other nutrients from whole foods. She also is an animal rights advocate.

4. Charlotteemmma

Satisfy your sweet tooth with this plant-based blog that provides artistic, "healthy" sweets. The recipes found on this blog are highly creative such as: matcha pancakes, raspberry chocolate overnight oats, and pumpkin smoothie bowls.

5. Livingthehealthychoice

If you want to impress your friends and family with your cooking skills check out Pauline Bossdorf's food blog. Her approach to healthy eating is effortlessly professional with a creative twist on conventional meals. She provides detailed recipes as well as cooking and health tips. Her emphasis on healthy, vegan cuisine focuses on eco-friendly recipes, minimizing packaging and food waste.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
