5 Delicious Vegan Food Blogs. ~ Lindsay Friedman



As a vegan, it is difficult at times to find innovative recipes that satisfy my taste buds. I love food and I love to experiment with it. I have such a great time whipping up fun dishes, but after a while, all my food starts to get a little boring.

When I crave sweet things or something that has a salty cheese taste, I check out these blogs for alternatives. Although eating a vegan diet means that food lovers are restricted from some foods, it does not mean what us vegans whip up has to be boring.

After much research, I have listed five blogs that I feel offer the most variety and ease when it comes to healthy and delicious vegan meals.

1. foodgawker  –– This is my quick and easy go-to food blog. The pictures bring my mouth to immediately salivate. My favorite late night sweet are the chocolate cookies.

2. Vegan Piggy — Two cooks and easy meals. One is tracking her weight loss and the other is a witty side-kick. My favorite dish for dinner is the seitan and barley stew.

3. Spices & Spackle –– With DIY, thrifting and vegetarian meals, this blog is more than you average vegan food blog. My favorite lunch/dinner dish is the vegan buffalo mac and cheese. Vegan mac and cheese? Yes, and I bet this is the best one you will ever make.

4. Vegan Yum Yum ––  For breakfast, try spring crepes three ways. Savory and sweet, these three crepes makes will satisfy any indecisive eater.

5. The Post Punk Kitchen ––  I like this blog because it is not the typical vegan food blog.  As a vegan who lives in Boulder, I think it is safe to say that the typical vegan appears organic and earthy looking than the vegan cooks of this punk kitchen and online blog. Try the yamroom sushi rolls–– filled with savory yams and mushrooms. This blog shows us why vegan food rocks.
