Our newest vegan guest blogger is Melissa from It’s Got Vegan In It. Her post below is an fantastic round up of vegan cooking shows. I wholeheartedly agree with her and I’m glad someone had the smarts to make such a list. Vegan shows are growing in popularity and yay for that. Go vegans!
Melissa went vegan in August of 2011. Through her blog, she hopes to inspire others around her to do the same, as well as educate people on the plight of animals. A long time lover of all things chocolate, Melissa believes delicious vegan chocolate and accessible knowledge about how easy vegan living is is the key to changing the people around her.
I’m hoping I live to see the day when a vegan cooking show becomes the norm. I know there are vegan cooking shows on tv such as Jason Wrobel’s “How to Live to 100″ on The Cooking Channel, Vegan Mash-up, and The Jazzy Vegetarian. However, these shows are usually on special cable networks or on stations that don’t reach the masses. My hope is that one day you can turn on basic tv channels and tune in to your favorite vegan cooking show. In the meantime, we can enjoy the plethora of vegan cooking shows on YouTube!
I’ve tried to gather up some of the most fun and favorite YouTube vegan cooking show in the vegan world. If I missed one you think deserves a nod, be sure to mention it in the comments below!
(Note, for all of you who chimed in with your suggestions – thank you! I added some of the shows you’ve suggested. Whatever gets veganism front and center is better for the cause!)
Jaime K of “Save the Kales” was one of the first vegan cooking shows I ever discovered. Her meals are made with simple ingredients and directions, they look delicious, and both Jaime and the show are so charming!
Lindsay Nixon of The Happy Herbivore has had a successful plant-based and healthy living blog for some time now and has several plant-based cookbooks out on the market. She recently launched a series of cooking shows for us to enjoy!
If you don’t know The Vegan Zombie, now’s the time to catch up before the zombie apocalypse.
Christy Morgan of The Blissful Chef not only shares her cooking tips and recipes, but her YouTube channel is chock-full of healthy living advice and lots of “ask a vegan chef” FAQ videos.
JL Fields of “JL Goes Vegan” was a huge influence during my early vegan years. I had communicated with her via email, then met her in person at The Seed in NYC, and have followed her vegan food/vegan lifestyle blog for some time now. I am delighted to share that she, too, has several cooking demos on her YouTube page. JL is also queen of the pressure cooker, so check out her Pressure Cooking Community on Google Plus!
Oh, Brian L. Patton…he’ll make you giggle and salivate with his comic flair and easy recipes.
For those of you that are looking to find raw vegan recipes, look no further than FullyRawKristina! She’s so bubbly and sweet; it must be all the fruit she eats ;-)
If you’re like me and you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss Tasha Edwards of The Sweetest Vegan!
Don’t be scared of the Vegan Black Metal Chef! He’s actually pretty cool!
The Vegan Cooking With Love videos are so professionally-done, they’re only eclipsed by how yummy the recipes are!
Thanks to you guys, the readers, I was sure to add this one to the list. See, I’m learning about vegan cooking shows, too! (Thank you!)
I follow The Edgy Veg on Facebook. I love her style – her edge! How appropriate ;-) But don’t fear the cooking; there’s nothing complicated about the recipes. You’ll absolutely love ’em.
Who doesn’t love Isa Chandra Moskowitz or her cookbooks?! Back in the day, The Post Punk Kitchen creator used to do a regular video series. Recently, Breville has teamed up with the famous vegan cook to create a series of videos, which we will happily watch instead. Long Live Isa!
There are several vegan cooking shows that have picked up syndication in a few areas. You’ll have to check your local tv provider, of course, but if you’re one of the lucky ones that has access to these channels, don’t miss Laura Theodore of The Jazzy Vegetarian (who also has a wonderfully jazzy podcast!), Christina Pirello’s new show “Christina“, and the vegan star-studded Vegan Mashup on Delicious TV!
Hilarious, a tad naughty, and rockin’ the kitchen glam-style, vegan drag queen Honey LaBronx will entertain you and your taste buds!
I’m not sure how anyone can top a vegan drag queen cooking show, so I’m going to leave it at that. Remember, if I missed any shows, share them below so we can all tune in and continue spreading the word that vegan cooking is easy, accessible, and everywhere! :-)
