8 Amazing Vegan Blogs

8 Best Vegan Blogs: Healthy Vegan Recipes
Even if you are not a vegan, hopefully you’ll still find some tasty and healthy recipes on these vegan blogs.  Vegan recipes tend to include a lot of vegetables and fruit so it’s good to include some vegan meals as part of your weekly menu every week.  I also find vegan recipes delicious as herbs and spices are usually used very well to season the dishes.
Here are some of my best vegan blogs.  Check them out.  I hope you love them as much as I do!

1: Good Girl Gone Green

She has so many gorgeous recipes on her blog.  Check them out now.

What I love about Carrie’s blog is it’s totally focused on being a healthy vegan, which is what I’m passionate about, getting and staying healthy.  Carrie from Carrie On Vegan, follows Joel Fuhrman’s Eat To Live plan which focuses on getting the most nutritious meals that also taste amazing.  You can’t get better than that!
Carrie shares recipes such as Sweet Cherry Ice Cream.  This was so good  me and my baby ate this for dinner one day, but it’s healthy enough to be able to do that!  I love the idea of these Spinach & Black Bean Brownies.  Sneak your greens in where you least expect them!  If you haven’t tried kale chips yet, you’ve really got to try these Sour Cream & Onion Kale Chips.  Who would have thought something so healthy could be so gorgeous.  Have a look at her recipes.  You’ll be spoiled for choice.

I actually bought Amber Shea’s book, Practically Raw before finding her blog Chef Amber Shea.  She has an amazing story and is a classically trained chef.   Amber is famous for her Raw Vegan Blondies as pictured above.  This is fast healthy food at it’s best.

Amber has loads of amazing recipes on her blog such as the Black-Eyed Pea Quinoa PizzaAlmond Pear Tartlets with Cinnamon-Caramel Creamand the Citrusy Sweet Potato-Carrot Soup.
I have to say, of the recipes I’ve made from her recipe book, I’ve returned to make them numerous times as they’ve been so delicious.
