Instagram can be a great resource for vegans. Whether you are looking for meal inspiration, recipe ideas, or to connect with a like-minded community, the photo-sharing app can be a sanctuary for all things vegan.
It can be a lifeline at the start of your vegan journey, when you may be looking for advice and tips about transitioning to a vegan lifestyle. Equally, you could be a seasoned veteran, and just appreciate a media platform where veganism is so widely (and positively!) represented.
Either way, Instagram represents so much than just photos, after all, a picture says a thousand words. This list shines a light on the vegan Instagram influencers you should be following.
Sean O'Callaghan, otherwise known as Fat Gay Vegan, offers a no-nonsense approach to easy vegan living. Sean has arguably become the go-to source for honest reviews on vegan restaurants and events in the UK. In fact, Sean has become so popular that he’s even released a book and also runs a popular vegan market at Hackney Downs Studios.
Ciara offers a snapshot into her life running a busy vegan family. Her feed features plenty of snaps of hearty and healthy vegan meals to keep her two young children going and is a great source of inspiration for vegan parents.
CathKendall offers lighthearted inspiration for vegan make-up, fashion and food. But what what makes her really stand out as a vegan blogger is her ability to combine all this with animal activism, reminding her audience what veganism is all about and why we're doing it.
Earthlinged is very active beyond Instagram, but he’s been included in this list in recognition of how inspiring it can be to follow animal activists on social media. He covers everything from animal activism and educational events, to posts which remind his followers why they went (and why they should stay) vegan.
Plant based Jane has a special knack for capturing images that will trigger your saliva glands. Scrolling through Jane’s Instagram feed you almost feel as though you can taste her lovingly prepared lunches, or maybe that’s just me. You most likely feel inspired to go and recreate her masterpieces. The good news is they’re often simple creations, so even the novice cooks amongst us can give them a go.
Nora’s stunning Instagram feed wouldn’t look out of place between the pages of a high fashion magazine. She evidently has a flair for staging beautiful images which paint a picture, this makes them transcend simple food photography and move into lifestyle blogging.
Naturally Jo has been causing quite the stir in the vegan community. In fact, his otherworldly looking shots have even managed to infiltrate mainstream media. In short, his posts are an aesthetic delight that you’ll want to print off and stick on your bedroom wall.
