Are you interested in adopting a vegan diet and lifestyle but nobody around you seems to feel the same? We were faced with the exact challenge when we decided to go vegan. Being the only plant munchers around, we each checked the internet to find out how others were leading a compassionate and healthy life. Sometimes, having some vegan YouTubers to follow is just what you need in order to get started!

More...

But it wasn't just important to have role models or inspiring people in the beginning of our journeys - until this day, we watch some of our favorite YouTube channels almost daily. It's really a blessing to have such wonderful people who put themselves out there and share their personal lives and thoughts, people who spend so much time and energy creating high-quality videos which we can watch for free.

So in order to get my inner fan girl rolling, I decided to put together a list of my current favorite vegan channels as well as over 30 others that I haven't delved into very deeply yet. I really want to give you the chance to get inspired daily to eat colorful yummy foods, move your precious body, and live with more awareness and compassion!

The following people and their channels are in no particular order - we enjoy all of them equally! There's no way of comparing them either since every individual has a different personality, way of talking about things, topics of interest, and magic around them. Additionally to some info about each channel, we decided to include one of their videos representing the channel the most so you could get a better idea of what to expect. So let's get right into it!

DISCLAIMER! This is an older article and we need to update it as soon as we can. Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions, we have lots of great YouTubers to add. Everything's changing so fast on the internet and it's possible that some of the people mentioned here have changed up their content by now - we'll republish soon.

  • 2. High Carb Hannah

    After having eaten a high raw vegan diet for a year and gaining 33 lbs during that time, Hannah has taken on the starch-based route 2 years ago and is feeling better than ever. All her social media profiles cover that process beautifully and offer a lot of weight loss inspiration. Together with her husband Derek (YouTube channel) and their two dogs, she currently lives in a tiny house in Arizona.

    Topics

    Her expertise ranges from healthy plant-based weight loss and creating simple delicious recipes to taking beautiful pictures and living an eco-friendly minimal lifestyle. The couple documented not only how they met and fell in love, got married and moved in together - also their whole planning and building of their own tiny house can be seen on YouTube. Her mukbangs are awesome too!

    What We Like

    We feel like Hannah is really speaking our language. Our personal story is very similar to Derek's and hers - so thank you for making a whole food (cooked) vegan diet so popular on YouTube. She doesn't stop at veganism though but also tries to live as naturally and zero waste as possible.

  • 3. That Vegan Couple

    Natasha and Luca have followed their passion and moved from Australia to Thailand. This means great inexpensive whole plant-based food, cycling up mountains, and inspiring others with their lifestyle by sharing lots of it on social media. Besides their volunteer work in many different countries, they decided to focus on the fields of lifestyle coaching, fitness, yoga, and online activism. You can read more about them in our interview.

    Topics

    When watching their YouTube channel, you'll find a lot of response videos to non-vegan YouTubers full of insightful tips on how they could solve some type of problem they described. This effective approach has already inspired a very popular YouTuber with a beauty channel to adopt a plant-based diet and inspire her subscribers to do the same. Natasha and Luca also like to answer common questions around veganism and health, inspire with their vlogs, share recipes, have mukbangs, and comment on recent news.

    What We Like

    The phrase with which the couple ends every video sums up most of which we love about them: "Going vegan isn't the most we can do. It's the least we can do." They are very kind and real as they offer the viewer a perspective of how the victims in our society must feel - starting with the most oppressed, the animals.

  • 5. Earthling Ed

    This young activist is from the UK and has been getting quite a lot of attention because of the way he approaches and confronts passengers on the street. Because veganism changed his life and perspective on so many issues, he believes that this is the way back to compassion and love - while solving a lot of worldwide issues in the process.

    Topics

    Most of his videos show him talking with strangers on topics like morality or oppression which he eloquently weaves into the subject of consuming animals and objectifying them. Most passengers react in a positive way and are grateful for having their perspective broadened. He also makes videos on common questions towards vegans such as the cruelty behind wool, the circle of life, destruction of the planet, and all things morality.

    What We Like

    Vegan activism has been getting many faces recently and we absolutely adore Ed's attitude and way of approaching people. It's something we can all learn from. He never sees himself as above anyone else and it's so easy to make that connection with him. His knowledge base is very sound and he has the perfect answer for anything that comes up.

  • 7. Cheap Lazy Vegan

    The bubbly red-haired woman behind this project is Rose, a young Canadian woman living in the UK. After hearing many people say that veganism would be for the super rich only, she decided to come up with Cheap Lazy Vegan to add some truth to this myth. Because it turns out, she didn't have to give up her social life or sacrifice her foodie status - and her food costs are lower than ever. 

    Topics

    Rose likes to comment on current topics such as veganism being more than a diet, honey, morality, and vegan holidays. She also talks about eating out as a vegan, showing how to live on £1 a day on vegan food, quick & easy recipes, grocery shopping, and more. Her meal preparation videos, where she films what she likes to eat in a day, are a special treat.

    1. I follow most of them already haha, I would just like to add the channel Hot for food & Lauren Toyota :) Go check it out :) !

    2. I think you’re missing Unnatural Vegan. She might be controversial but she does do A LOT to make being/becoming vegan more accessible and therefore easier to present to a wider audience.

      • Hi Ana,
        thanks for the comment! You’re completely right, I somehow forgot about her… I do watch most of her videos, except for her What I Eat In A Day ones. I don’t agree with her specific food choices too much, but she has a reasonable approach. Will include her too!
        Best wishes,
        Alena

      • Hey Brian,
        wow, you’ve got every right to be offended! How could we miss out on your awesome channel? It’s crazy how we can still have blind spots after 5 years of veganism. Will add you to the list for sure.
        How would you like a full feature on your life and achievements to make it up to you? Feel free to contact us if you want to talk details.
        Best wishes,
        Alena

      • Hi Tamar,
        thanks so much for the comment! Glad you like the channels as much as we do :)
        I just saw that you got one yourself as well! Will be checking it out soon and then adding it to the list as well. Your blog is pretty great too, although you just started. Would you be interested in sharing your personal tips for motivation regarding exercise? I think it would be a hit ;) Feel free to email us about it, we’d love to feature the piece.
        All my best,
        Alena

      • Yes, she’s really, really awesome! The channels are in no order by the way ;) We love them all equally and can’t really compare the different styles.
        Thanks for the comment!

      • Hey Holly,
        no problem. We love to keep things real and drama-free! It has taken over the vegan YouTube scene too much and we don’t want to scare away any people who are interested in this lifestyle.
        Which channel do you like the most? :)

    3. I’m so happy for this list! One of my favorites is the channel of Shir Levi – every time I watch one of her videos I end us with a great sense of peace and bliss. Veganism is only part of the topics that she’s sharing but it did make an impact on me.

      • Hi Ramona,
        thanks so much for the comment and for checking out the article.
        I haven’t heard of Shir Levi before – will go check her out because your description sounds amazing :)
        Have a beautiful day,
        Alena

    4. Thanks for this list. There’s quite a number on here that I have never heard of and that I will be checking out. On this list, I already follow Cheap Lazy Vegan, Jenny Mustard, Bonny Rebecca, Fablunch, and Tess Begg.

      I second Unnatural Vegan (said by another commenter) and would add A Privileged Vegan, Honeybunch of Onion Tops, Cam and Nina, thrivingonplants, Antastesia, Annie Tarasova, Jenell B. Stewart, and James Aspey.

      • Hi Regan,
        thank you so much for the comment! I just took a few hours today to review the channels you suggested and added most of them to the list :)
        Thanks for the inspiration! Have a beautiful weekend.
        Best,
        Alena

      • Hi Petra,
        thanks so much for your suggestion! I can’t believe I haven’t heard of Holly before. I reviewed her videos and added her to the list today.
        Have a beautiful weekend!
        Best,
        Alena

    5. I love ALL of these people too! I am surprised though that you didn’t mention Alyse or Kate! (Alyse = RawAlignment & Kate = KateFruitFlowers). Both are more RAW than VEGAN but it’s still considered Vegan. Alyse & Kate both talk about self love. Alyse also discusses minimalism in her life. – I hope you have a beautiful day, and thank you for making this post so I can share with my friends that ask who I recommend!

      • Hi Heather,
        well, you got me here – I don’t really watch many raw vegan channels, this is why I haven’t come across these 2 ladies probably.
        I will take some time out today to review their channels and might add them to the list then! Most people are attracted by a broader vegan diet than just raw foods (this is why I didn’t add FullyRaw Kristina), but you’re right – should be something for everyone here.
        Have a lovely weekend! x

      • Hi Ness,
        thanks so much for your lovely feedback! Do you follow any other YouTubers we’ve forgotten to list here as well?
        Have a wonderful year 2017!

    6. Alright guys wtf…MarissaKai (previously lifestylewithme) should’ve made this list! shes my favorite and is studying to be a dietician

    7. And Mango Island Mamma makes amazing raw vegan and cooked vegan recipes in her videos! She has two young boys, a husband, and a house in Hawaii! Her videos are beautiful, fun, inspiring and super educational. She has a blog too.

      And Hot for Food! Lauren Toyota and her partner John Diemer makes suppper amazing, funny and nicely shot videos of vegan junk food. There’s healthier foods, fun junky foods, and food challenges! They have a blog too and Lauren has her own channel where she talks about many interesting topics including veganism.

      • Hi Mila,
        all of your suggestions sound amazing!! I took notes and will make sure to update the article very soon :) Thanks for the tips, I’m excited to check out these channels.
        Warmly,
        Alena

    8. Surprised we didn’t make your list! I opened Planet Raw Restaurant in 1994 in San Francisco when 99.9% of the population never heard of raw cuisine before! I truly believe I was the first person to make ravioli and it was an accident, which sometimes, the best things come out of! Anyway, love the list, love the comments, just thought we belong on it too! :))
      Enclosing one of many original vegan recipe video’s we made.
      https://youtu.be/30HhOzIba1U

      • Hi Cara,
        thanks for the tip! The reason why your channel is not on the list is because we’re not into the raw food scene very much and only know a few big raw food channels. I will make sure to check yours out soon and see if we can include it in the updated version of the article!
        Best wishes,
        Alena

      • Hi Margaret,
        thanks so much for your comment! We have been getting into your videos more and more over the past weeks and really like your rational approach. The Philosophical Vegan Forum is really interesting as well! Keep up the awesome work and let us know if you ever want to contribute an article to our blog. We’d be honored.
        All my best

      • Not something we watch at all, I’m afraid. This is a personal favorites list, but we’ll check out the channel and think about adding it if we like what we see :)

      • I was going to mention him, as well. I just discovered him about a week ago, and I immediately subscribed. She probably doesn’t like that he swears so much. I find him really charming, and apparently you do, too. That’s alright. I think what’s really impressive to me is that I don’t get the impression that he would have been “one of our kind” had he not been trying to cure an illness. I think it’s great, no matter what the motivation behind it is. “Regular guys” going vegan gives me a little more hope in my fellow humans.

    9. Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for including me! I am beyond flattered to be included in your line up! So much love to you ❤❤❤❤ Thank you!!

      Amber aka The Fairly Local Vegan ?

      • Hey Amber, it was our pleasure! We totally roll with your vibe :) Very inspirational and warm videos, please keep them coming. Let us know if you want to contribute to our blog sometime! We’d be flattered.
        Warm wishes,
        Alena

    10. You should check out the vegan zombie. They do recipies and vegan on a budget things. They also have a great theme.

    11. I think this list is a great idea! However, I do get tired of seeing the majority of websites being about only vegan food. Veganism is so much more than that as we know, and unfortunately there isn’t enough vegan sites supporting every aspect of being vegan.

      Maybe because many vegans feel talking about vegan foods/nutrition is the easiest, safest form of activism without the fear of getting people upset?

      I just wish there were more people discussing veganism as a whole and not just as a diet. No wonder why most non-vegans think all one has to do to be vegan is to stop eating animals; the vegan community seems to push it for people to think that way. Practically every vegan site home page shows food and nothing else. So sadly, most people think veganism is just about diet.

      • Hey Lorrie,
        I agree that veganism is about so much more than just what someone eats. It is a philosophy. Food makes up the biggest part of this, though, and most people are more easily convinced to make some kind of change when there’s something in it for them as well – like losing weight, getting off medication etc. The feeling good in one’s body is what keeps many people on this path. We chose to focus on the food aspect and don’t just recommend eating any vegan food but healthy plant-based food most of the time. It’s just our specialty. You can find many websites, like Peta, who give more advice around activism, lifestyle, and accidentally vegan foods (which can be found in our free course, BTW). And here’s our piece on vegan activism: https://nutriciously.com/how-to-become-a-vegan-activist/
        Hope this helps x

    12. A great list of vegan YouTubers, and so good to see it’s expanding (like veganism is).

      Would love if you checked out our channel too.
      Courtney and I have been vegan for many years and love promoting a whole foods, higher raw, healthy vegan lifestyle.

      Here’s a link to our channel in case you would like to check it out :)

      Vegan Regards,

      :D

      • Hi Todd,
        thanks so much for checking in with us! Glad you like the article, we definitely have to overhaul it soon because we’ve been getting many requests and ideas. Will definitely check your channel, sounds pretty legit. Thanks for the tip :)
        Peace & veggies
        Alena

    13. This is an amazing detailed resource, thank you!!! Love all of them but I believe you left out my absolute favourite vegan YouTuber: Ellen Fisher. She’s a super mindful mama who lives in Hawaii with her husband and two kids (cutest I have seen, seriously!) and offers many many tips on veganism, raw recipes and gentle parenting! A must add!! :)

      • Hi Rafaella,
        what a beautiful name! Thanks for the lovely feedback, we’ll definitely post an updated version of this soon. You’re right about Ellen, how could I forget about her? I guess this just happens when you’ve already thought of 50 other channels :D
        Best wishes x

    14. I loved this post! I’ve been feeling a bit stuck in my vegan habits lately, what with no recipe inspiration and such, and this has really helped me out! One more suggestion for the list: Sadia from pickuplimes.com. Her youtube channel is also called pickuplimes. She is a dietitian, comes across very calm and sweet and happy and has a lot of helpful videos. She brings us recipes and Q&A’s but also things like shopping lists and pantry staples and tips for beginning vegans. I learned a lot from her. Her youtube and blog also work together perfectly: she has free printables on her blog with every recipe she shows on youtube, and I just adore her. I hope you will check her out, she is amazing!

      • You’re so right, Sadia needs to make that list as well! I’ve been loving her videos ever since I discovered her channel a few weeks ago. We need to update the article soon so we can add her :)
        I’m very glad to hear that some of these YouTube channels were able to inspire you… I have experienced the same and love watching almost daily. It keeps you in the mood and helps you stay on track in a non-vegan world.
        best wishes!

    15. Please check out The Vegan Zombie; Chris & John do many cooking videos and throw in humor, shopping trips, animal issues, and fun…love those guys! Thank you for the list ☺

      • Oh yes, just recently discovered them too and like these channels very much! This article is in need of an update, definitely – will add them for sure :)

    16. Are you still recommending Family Fizz (formerly Vegan Family TV)? While they are still vegan, they RARELY talk about it anymore and no longer do mukbangs or “what I eat in a day”. I actually found your article because I was looking for recommendations of health-conscious vegan vloggers to watch in lieu of them. You have provided a ton of options! :)

      • Hi there Laurie,
        funny that you mention it – we unsubscribed from their channel a while ago because their videos weren’t all that relevant anymore. This article is overdue for an update I suppose… just so many things on our list, haha!
        Happy to have been helpful anyway. Thanks :)

      • Have you tried Madeleine Olivia. She’s a vegan vlogger with loads of great recipes and lifestyle views, very real and natural!

    17. Great article! But I was disappointed that Health with Kisha didn’t make the list. She’s helped me transition to a plant based lifestyle. Check her out!

    18. hey! I just wanted to say these are so helpful thank you and another vegan youtuber I absolutely love is Olivia Vargus I’m thinking of becoming vegan and all your posts are very helpful and inspiring ❤️ thanks x

    19. You should check out Maddie Lymburner. Her and her boyfriend, Kyle are amazing and very inspiring for the vegan lifestyle. She shares alot of “what i eat in a day” videos, vegan recipe videos, traveling abrod vegan vlogs, and she also has a separate fittness channel now for at home workouts. Please check her out and consider adding her to this list. Thanks!

      • Hey Britt,
        yessss I’ve heard of her! Great videos – so sorry I haven’t come around to updating the article, so many good suggestions so far. Will definitely include her once we overhaul this thing here.
        Thanks again :)

    20. I’m not at all a fan of That Vegan Couple. Most of their ‘helpful’ videos telling other youtubers to go vegan come off as personal attacks. It’s not a good vibe at all. If it were me, I’d switch them out for Kalyn Nicholson. Kalyn gives wonderful life advice ranging across a variety of topics and her video have never once made me feel the Mean Girls ‘tormenting the kids that are different’ theme.

    21. As someone who is interested in going vegan, this is very helpful. I am still experimenting with recipes, and finding out what I like and what I don’t like. I hope I can make the full transition later on this year!

    22. Where is Vegan Zombie??? Love him!!
      Also, Bonny Rebecca, Rawvana and Raw Alignment need to be removed from this list since they all have come out with “Why I Am No Longer Vegan” videos. They all have reverted to eating fish and eggs due to “health issues” ie…. issues due to extreme water and juices cleanses and poorly planned vegan meals. Bonny Rebecca has also started using animal skins and animal furs in her apartment decor videos (wool rugs, etc.).

      • Hey Robin,
        thanks so much for the comment! True, Vegan Zombie needs to be added – we actually have been wanting to update this post for a while but there are different priorities right now… need to do this ASAP.
        Especially since these 3 women all went back to eating animals, YES! Watched many videos on this and totally agree that they shouldn’t be on the list anymore. Thanks so much for pointing this out, I’ll add a Disclaimer for now and really want to update it as soon as I can.
        Also thinking about writing an article on how to STAY vegan and not make these mistakes others did.
        Best wishes to you,
        Alena

    23. Hey it seems that some of the influencers in this article are no longer plant based. Please consider revising this article or taking it down and making a new post. Thanks

      • interesting, never heard of her! Added to my list of channels to review so I can eventually overhaul this article :) Thanks, Amelia!

    24. GREAT LIST

      Another great vegan YOU TUBER is JESS BEAUTICIAN…I know its not a vegan related name , but her videos are all vegan dishes…..Her dishes are amaaaazing, The setup and style is so professional and her dishes are so inventive and unique….Im not vegan but i binge watch her videos all the time…
