For many people, YouTube is one of the first places to head to if you want to learn about something quickly. Video is BIG right now, and whilst of course it can’t ever replace the pleasure of reading a good book, I have to say that YouTube was the main resource I used when learning about the vegan movement back in 2014.
So, without further ado, here are my top 5 vegan YouTube accounts. There are plenty of wonderful vegan channels out there, so don’t forget to comment below and let me know your favourite ones!
Yes, she is pretty controversial, and I don’t necessarily agree with everything she says, but Freelee was my inspiration to turn vegan. I stumbled across her channel and got hooked! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and hearing about the egg and dairy industries and I’ll be ever thankful to her for helping me start my vegan journey.
Freelee’s other half also had a big influence on my pre-vegan/early vegan days. What I love about his channel is that he offers great cycling advice and also has some really funny videos on there, and they certainly cheer me up if I’m feeling a bit blue.
This lady is simply awesome. She’s a vegan yogi, has the most incredible figure and is so down to earth about everything you can’t help but love her. She has a range of videos that include yoga tips, what to feed vegan kids and much more.
I’m not a raw vegan, but I am striving to include more raw food into my diet, especially as we (slowly) move towards spring and summer. Rawvana’s channel is full of fantastic recipes and will make you want to run into the kitchen and start preparing something! She actually has introduced cooked food into her diet now, so it’s really interesting to see her talk about why she did this.
This lovely lady knows her stuff when it comes to thriving off a low-fat, raw vegan diet. She’s been eating this way for years and looks amazing. Her videos are full of helpful guidance and of course there’s plenty of recipes for you to try out as well!
