Vegans can’t simply buy food and cosmetics in their local store. That’s why learning to create your own products goes hand in hand with veganism. Below are 8 exciting and inventive recipe blogs that cover everything from cooking and baking to making cosmetics and catering for a nut-free diet.
From the blog owner: We are a wife and husband duo sharing vegan and gluten-free recipes on a blog called My Pure Plants. We are an advocate for healthy, homemade cooking using mainly whole food ingredients.
Maple Holistics is all about natural ingredients and healthy living. Which is why the Maple Holistics blog is chock-full of vegan recipes for you to enjoy. Covering both food and DIY cosmetics, the blog will tell you all about which natural ingredients to use and why, as well as what’s best for mixing and matching. So you can both learn new recipes and discover how to create your own based on your unique needs and preferences!

Terrell L. Strayhorn from Do Good Work LLC: There are several reasons why I’m suggesting this blog. First, I use the blog regularly—almost daily—but definitely weekly to cook, meal prep, or think about things that I can eat while at work or traveling. The blog is really helpful, providing vegan recipes and ideas requiring no more than 10 ingredients, 1 bowl, and usually less than 30 minutes to prepare.
The other nice thing about this blog (compared to others I’ve used) is that most of the ingredients are (or become) household items for the fledgling or experienced vegan—things like onion, garlic, cauliflower, lime, cilantro, to name a few. Even if you don’t end up making the featured dish—for example, green cauliflower rice or southwest sweet potato black bean dip—you’ll get great ideas about things that you can make or purchase from a local vegan deli.
