No matter if you’re new to the vegan lifestyle or you’ve been at it for many years like me, chances are that from time to time you’re looking for tasty vegan meal inspiration. When you’re new you probably don’t know what’s possible and you are looking for ideas for what to eat as a vegan. As a vegan veteran I find I get bored with my usual recipes from time to time. I get in a rut, making the same recipes over and over again. No matter which is true for you, here are my favorite YouTube channels for where to get vegan meal inspiration.
Having healthy food you LOVE to eat is vital to creating a healthy vegan lifestyle that you enjoy and can maintain for the long-term. That’s why Kitchen Mastery and developing Kitchen Confidence is one of the Four Pillars Of Success that I focus on with my Vegan Lifestyle Coaching clients. Knowing where to get ongoing meal inspiration is one part of creating your Kitchen Mastery/Confidence.
I love international food. Dishes from Asia, Africa, India and Latin America are always welcome in my kitchen where my mantra is Healthy Not Boring! Sometimes I try the recipes as they are given in the videos. Other times I use what they did as a jumping off point to create my own versions.
One thing that bothers me is so many of them will talk about “high protein” dishes. I never worry about the protein issue. I’m confident that if I am eating a variety of whole plant based foods, including fruit, veggies, greens, whole grains and legumes, then I don’t need to worry about it. Here is what Dr. Opare has to say about getting enough protein.
