YouTube has become one of my fav platforms to gain inspiration for amazing plant-based recipes, restaurants to visit & ‘what I eat in a day‘ videos. Here are some of my favourite people to watch, there’s too many to mention them all!!!…Who do you rate?
My Top 5:
Best for: Easy-to-follow, budget/student friendly recipes.
Maddie uses a no nonsense approach with quick, affordable recipes suitable for plant-based living on a budget. Some of my favs have to be her Quinoa Chilli, Savoury Oats & Chocolate Cookies! She’s also created two e-books, Versatile Vegan & Minimal Beauty! Both amazing & really affordable! And has many videos on minimalism, her ED recovery & decluttering.
Best for: Incredible ‘what I eat in a day’ videos using whole, fresh ingredients, showing the entire recipe for each meal.
Jess often shares What I eat in a Day videos filled with delicious homemade recipes, she’s all about whole, fresh foods and ingredients. Her recipes are unique but achievable with her incredible filming set up & easy to follow videos. Plus she writes ALL her recipes in the description box so you can easy print them off to use in the kitchen. Seriously this girl needs her own recipe book?!
Best for: relaxed vlogs & quick to watch ‘what I eat in a day’ videos
Amanda creates hearty meals, filled with flavour and goodness, she defo channels the Aussie beach vibes in her videos. She is so down to earth and fun to watch, her videos are pretty chilled, vlog style which I love.
Best for: creative, easy-to-follow meal idea videos & vegan travels
Mina creates delicious ‘what I eat in a day’ or ‘what I eat for breakfast/lunch etc in a week’ & has some inventive no fuss recipes. Her voice overs are so relaxing & videos so aesthetically pleasing. She travels a fair bit too & never fails to show us what she’s been eating along the way.
Best for: amazing, incredible, plant based recipes! And quick recipe videos.
Ok, so if you haven’t heard of BOSH what are you doing?! Go out and get both their recipe books now and watch all their videos! Ian and Henry are the ultimate vegan gods, creating stunning but achievable plant-based meals, snack, desserts, sides, starters, cakes- basically anything & everything.

All these girls show how to balance veganism with fitness, they provide workout videos alongside their vegan eats, often incorporated into a vlog style video.
