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!
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!
1. Sweet Potato Soul
The person behind this popular brand is Jenné, a glowing woman currently living in NYC. She's a vegan chef, health coach, and cooking instructor who makes awesome videos and takes stunning pictures of her delicious vegan food as well as snapshots from her daily life.
In her videos, you'll find nourishing recipes for body and soul as well as travel or "What I Eat in a Day" vlogs as well as information on vegan fashion. Jenné also likes to sit down and have an honest heart-to-heart chat on popular questions she receives such as healthy weight loss, kitchen tours, skin care, and supplementation.
What We Like
Jennés peaceful and inspiring way of presenting her life and meals is really outstanding. Her positivity will make you want to binge-watch everything all at once!
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.
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.
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.
4. Eco-Vegan Gal
Eco-Vegan Gal is an online empowerment resource for people who, like you, are curious about how to be better to their bodies and the planet. The awesome lady behind this project is Whitney, a vegan since 2003, who currently lives in Los Angeles. She has a background in film production and received an Environmental Activist Award in 2014.
Whitney recently started a series on her YouTube channel where she reads and then talks about books in the areas of health, weight loss, self-love, and self-improvement. These videos come in handy because you can get her notes too and don't have to get every single book yourself! Apart from that, she likes to share recipes, eco-vegan products she buys, personal routines, DIYs, interviews, and more.
What We Like
We agree that sustainability is a very important subject as well. Whitney is very insightful and has a lot to offer from her experience, which she can present in a very understandable way. Her positivity will make you want to watch all of her videos in one go!
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.
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.
6. Bonny Rebecca
Bonny is a young Australian woman who spreads love, happiness, compassion, and health around the world. She is also traveling a lot and has written a high carb vegan recipe book in hopes of inspiring as many people as she can to get comfortable in the kitchen - and to bust the myth that vegans only eat lettuce...
The videos she makes are very diverse - from raw vegan foods to eating vegan junk food at restaurants, mukbangs, travel vlogs, What I Eat in a Day, popular questions answered and workout tips... you won't get bored with the range of topics she covers. Be prepared for some cute vegan couple action on random vlogs too!
What We Like
Her bubbly, authentic, and contagious personality shines through every picture and video that she posts. She shows how much she loves her life and finds the magic to inspire others around her to keep striving towards what makes them truly happy.

The mom of two currently lives in Miami, Florida where she works as an entrepreneur on a website called "Thriving plant-based", giving online yoga classes, offering food journals, group coaching and more.
Her social media accounts are half dominated by yoga pictures (more so than videos) of amazing postures and answering questions she gets or talking about what happened in her life. She likes to comment on the behavior people around her have or the things they say - giving her honest and raw opinion can sometimes end in a rant with lots of cuss words, but that's also what makes her unique and a source of inspiration.
What We Like
She manages life with her 2 children pretty well, teaching them her values and packing awesome vegan lunches. We like that she has a high standard and is a hard worker while being so down to earth. She shows how you can be a vegan and still be a f*%king lady.
8. 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.
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.
What We Like
We've been getting into meal prepping because of this lady! Honestly, her videos on easy vegan meals are very inspiring and take away the excuse of inconvenience. She also shows how to eat out at different restaurants and why veganism doesn't have to be a struggle. Plus her personality is super encouraging and awesome!
9. Brianna Jackfruitson
Speaking of bubbly: meet Brianna, a young lady from England. After having struggled with anorexia, she decided to go on a raw vegan (rather, fruitarian) diet for her recovery - which, unfortunately, just turned her existing eating disorder into orthorexia. She bravely documented her recovery process, showing what she eats now and which steps she took to free herself from any restrictive thoughts and behaviors.
Brianna likes to travel. More importantly, she likes to take her camera with her and discover awesome places and even more awesome vegan food in different countries! She shows what she eats in a day, makes mukbangs, taste tests, and shares recipes. But she also likes to take a stand on topics such as drama, weight gain, makeup, education, anxiety, and societal issues.
What We Like
Her humor is contagious! Her YouTuber impressions are priceless, her accent is lovely and she is incredibly wise for her age. We loved watching her transform and grow out of her eating disorder as well as her bravery for talking about many difficult subjects.

Their posts range from high carb vegan recipes to fitness, interviews, what I eat in a day style videos, and - most popular - their thoughts and comments on popular topics around health and veganism. They are not afraid to call out others on spreading misinformation and backing it up with solid science.
What We Like
We always smile throughout every of their videos because they bring such a chill, joyful, and logical vibe along with them. It's partly because of their comparably older age, but the wisdom and attitude in their videos is pretty outstanding! Keep it carbed and keep it chill :)

The lovely Mary from Australia shares her story on how she overcame struggling with anxiety and eating disorders through a vegan lifestyle and nourished herself back to health. The trained nurse offers an awesome ebook and loves to travel the world as well as inspiring like-minded people.

Jenny is a Swedish minimalist lifestyle blogger with a passion for vegan food and movies. She currently lives in Berlin, Germany where she shoots her professional videos together with her partner David and wallows in the world of fashion.

The activist and educator also holds credentials in the fields of fine arts, yoga, and personal training.
Emily seems to cover anything you need to know about veganism from the production of wool or eggs to ethical and philosophical topics such as "Are we born vegan?".

If there's anything to know or share about the concept of veganism - you will find it on her channel.

She has the ability to talk to kids just as well as to well-educated grown-ups so that everyone can understand her simple yet powerful message.
