Instagram is overloaded with cute dogs, cute babies and cute babies crawling with cute dogs, but we're really in it for the food.
Struggling a little with Veganuary? Same.
Perhaps your local shop isn't equipped with all the ingredients you've been coming across in your new recipe books; perhaps the recipes you're looking at just seem like too much effort. Either way, you're fast losing interest in the whole thing.
Enter Vegan influencers. We’re living in a time where we’re expressing ourselves through food in ways like never before, what we eat has become today’s hottest social media currency. It’s thanks to our connected world that the landscape for getting closer to real transparency around where our food comes from and how it’s made has been blown wide open.
From chefs to celebs, there's a whole host of vegan influencers to give you some culinary inspiration – whether that’s recipes, restaurant recommendations or accidentally vegan products. Keep scrolling for the inspiring and passionate change-makers making steps to safeguard the future of our food and planet.
