The vegan movement is a rapidly growing social movement and probably the quickest growing one we’ve seen in many years. Whether you are vegan or not, chances are you know someone who is or you’ve read one of the many articles discussing the benefits on health, the environment, the planet and the animals. Social media has played a large role in its popularity as people are realising that it is one of the easiest ways we can have an impact as individuals.
I have been asked recently by a few people to share some of my favourite sites and so I thought today I’d share some of my favourite YouTubers. I love YouTube and enjoy watching people opening their lives and homes to us to learn a little about many things. Veganism is an increasingly trending topic on YouTube and so there are literally thousands sharing this lifestyle right now. From animal rights activists, to health concerns, vlogging and recipes, there are as many styles and areas of focus as there are people.
Today I have chosen a few of my personal favourites to share with you. I enjoy channels that uplift and inspire and focus on health and wellbeing and all of these chosen YouTubers do exactly that.
Sweet Potato Soul Jenne ‘shares unique and tasty vegan recipes, ethical fashion, natural beauty, and more to help inspire a compassionate lifestyle.’ Beautifully shot, high quality videos with fabulous soundtracks combined with an upbeat, positive outlook make for great viewing. She just makes you feel good watching her.
Pick up Limes ‘welcomes foodies, minimalists, travellers and all beautiful souls. Get inspired or find a calm and relaxing space with the collection of videos that help to nourish the cells and the soul.’ Sadia is a qualified dietician who has rapidly grown a huge following on YouTube and for good reason. Her videos are incredibly beautifully filmed and produced and her gorgeous heart centred and sensible approach to life is inspiring and infectious.
The Fairy Local Vegan ‘makes YouTube videos about trying to live a conscious life, striving to be zero waste, veganism, minimalism, being a gentle attachment parent, and all things health related.’ Amber is a home schooling mum who shares everything from recipes to health challenges. She is very natural, easy going and I enjoy her videos a lot.
Sustainably Vegan Immi talks about minimalism, vegan living and low impact living. Her videos are thoughtful, well put together and her voice and demeanour is very calming.
Ellen Fisher is a home schooling mum living a high raw vegan lifestyle in Hawaii. She talks about gentle parenting, vegan living, raising kids and health and wellbeing. She is vibrant, inspiring and makes me want to eat delicious food every time I watch her videos. She recently gave birth to her third child and filmed a beautiful video of her water birth for YouTube.
Hannah McNeely is Ellen Fisher’s sister, also a vegan and talks about everything from vegan living to teaching, zero waste and all in between. She is incredibly funny and I always enjoy her videos as they are light hearted, well produced and very enjoyable. She also has a great podcast called Earth To Us.
Jinti Fell I met Jinti and her partner Chris a year ago when they rented my villa in Bali, at the time they had about 3000 subscribers. As at today they have reached an astounding 317K. They have recently blogged about living in a van, vegan living, intentional living and gentle parenting. They tend to share day in the life type of videos and they are relaxing and enjoyable.
There are many more I enjoy and I could go on forever but these are my top choices for now. I hope you like them as much as I do.
Also I am hosting an introduction to vegan living retreat with my friend Caroline in October this year in Ubud Bali. If you’d like to find out more, here are the juicy details.
I’d love to hear your favourites too!
