A spotlight of some awesome vegan food bloggers you may or may not know, but deserve your attention. Passionate people on a mission just trying to get their message, and food, out to the world.
I started Shane & Simple back in August of 2017 because I wanted to share my recipes, my story, and encourage people. My hope was to be a full-time blogger. That lifestyle just seemed, well, awesome! Who wouldn’t love to make a living taking pictures of the food that changed your life and sharing it with the world?
But, there was only one problem – I had no idea how to make money doing it.
In the summer of 2019, I met two of the best food bloggers in the biz, Tanya at My Forking Life and Donya at A Southern Soul. We became friends and they were willing to spend some time investing in this dreamer. Their knowledge, advice, and most importantly, their time, were invaluable. But, more than that, they encouraged this wannabe.
They showed me this idea being a full-time blogger wasn’t completely impossible or far fetched. Tanya had been a successful attorney and Donya left a lucrative sales position. So, maybe I wasn’t crazy.
Fast forward several months to January of 2020. At the age of 47, I left a career of 15 years to start my new life as a vegan food blogger. It hasn’t been easy. I’m still growing. And, sometimes it’s scary and stressful. But, I love waking up and going to work…EVERY DAY!
When you can make money doing something you love, regardless of the amount, there’s no greater feeling. Getting paid for your passion is one of the most humbling things in the world.
Paying It Forward
So, what’s the point? The point is we should always be willing to pay it forward. Because somewhere on our journey we all need a helping hand. And, that’s what I wanted to do here. These are 19 incredible vegan food bloggers that, just like me, have a passion and a dream. And, maybe one day make their passion their livelihood.
Do yourself a favor and check out each of these amazing blogs. But, more than that, look beyond the recipes and see the heart and soul that goes into each and every post.
Below are the faces of these blogs. Yes, they’re real people and they’re smiling because they believe in what they are doing. How could you say no to any of these beautiful people? I sure couldn’t. Just sayin’. So, be sure to drop them a line and tell’em…”Shane sent me.”
Share their work, send them an email of encouragement, subscribe to their blog, and maybe on occasion try a recipe or two. Trust me, you won’t be sorry! And, who knows? You might just be that one click that puts them over the top.

NOTE: This post is not an endorsement of recipes as I realize some of these blogs do not follow an oil-free whole foods approach like Shane & Simple. I am simply spotlighting fellow food bloggers and recognizing their amazing work and passion.
