15 Awesome Plant Based Instagram Accounts You Should Follow!

I have to admit something:  I am mildly obsessed with instagram.  And by mildly obsessed I mean I check my feed at least once an hour.  (Stop that.  Stop judging me.  You probably do too.  It's not just me, right?) ...anyway, it is by far my favourite social media platform and such a great way to interact with lots of different people!  When I first joined instagram I immediately started following vegan cooks, youtube personalities, podcasters, and authors.  Over time I started following a lot more normal everyday vegans, like me.  I loved being able to see other people's adventures and food, and feeling like I wasn't alone.  When I first went vegan I didn't know anyone who already was; I barely knew any vegetarians.  I was wandering into unchartered territory, and I have a horrible sense of direction.  Instagram and YouTube saved me from what was sure to be a very lonely and long process of trial and error.  I saw so many incredible people being successful doing what I was trying to do, and they looked so happy, healthy, and at peace!  I found a community online that I've never had in the real world, to this day.  Luckily I now have an incredible fiancé, Jason, who is also vegan.  And let me tell you, that has made all of the difference.  Loving and living with someone who understands that part of me has been so wonderful and such a relief, and we've built our own little vegan community of two :)

Vegans vs Protein

Ah, the age-old question.  The first 6 words people say after learning that I don't eat animal products; the concern used as an excuse for complete strangers to me give health and nutrition advice, sans qualifications.  The only possible topic for my first Plant Based Bride blog post:

'Where do you get your protein?'
