Great Vegan Youtubers – Being Vegan on the Internet

So, I have seriously been binge-watching all kinds of youtube the last three weeks. It’s so bad. It’s like – if I fail my exam Tuesday (update: I didn’t) I am totally gonna blame it on Youtube. Hmm. Maybe I can sue Google?? Nah.

But seriously, I have watched so much youtube and I realized I wanted to make a list off all the great channels I have been watching since I really could have used that my self.

I have like a bunch of different kinds of channels – some great cooking and lifestyle channels – some more scientific channels – and some channels that are more progressive like activists with response videos and such. I have listed a bunch and will do ongoing updating on descriptions as I watch more of the content ūüôā

Primarily science stuff:

Nutrition Facts Dr. Michael Greger shares the latest research on different nutrition and based on science he promotes plant based eating as better for your health.
Bite Size Vegan Emily has a huge passion for the animals, does a great amount of research for her videos and has a lot of background stuff aswell PLUS she has a non graphic series for kids. Her channel has a lot of everything.
Mic. the Vegan Mic makes very science based videos and responses to videos. He have some humoures videos with a vegan message too. He is one of my favorites on the tube.
Erin Janus¬†Erin doesn’t have a lot of videos yet, but she is very good and direct.
Unnatural Vegan¬†This is also very scientific like Mic. but that doesn’t mean they agree on everything. She’s a little different than the typical type of Vegan. If you are tired of the typical vegan check her out.

Primarily recipe/lifestyle stuff:

Cheap Lazy vegan
The Vegan Corner
Cooking with Plants
Rawvana
Marys Test Kitchen
More Salt Please
The Happy Pear
VeganBlackMetalChef
Bonny Rebecca
High Carb Hannah
Fully Raw Kristina Kristina is so loving and kind and will not say a bad word in her videos about anyone. Her videos are recipes, vlogs, tips and tricks, and her opinion on a bunch of issues.
Jenny Mustard
FabLunch

Rawsomehealthy A raw vegan family who travels and are raising a raw vegan toddler. There are recipes and a lot of other lifestyle topics.

Happy Healthy Vegan Anji and Ryan are really trying to be kind and accepting in their videos, and do both responses, information, lifestyle, and recipes.

Primarily activist or educational stuff: 

BananaTV Nicole and Cayley do educational content. A bunch of tips, tricks and great information. And a little lifestyle.
That Vegan Couple Natasha and Luca is a very adorable couple. They live in Thailand and do a bunch of response videos. They are very compassionate about veganism but still mostly kind to other people too.
Plant Based News¬†Literally the vegan news cast – covering the news on veganism around the world. It’s cool.
Freelee the Banana Girl I am not personally a huge fan of Freelee. Some might say she is awefull and hatefull Рbut I think she is just a little different and very straight forward, and I think some people need that Рso check her out for yourself!
The Vegan Activist The most monoton voice I have ever heard Рbut he has so many informational videos and offers a great perspective on small guides and tips. He is worth watching despite of the slightly boring voice over.
Gary Yourofsky¬†Some would say the father of all vegan activists – some have never heard of him. But his “Best speech ever” is very famous.

Now be sure to watch the videos that is good for you. If you need recipes, don’t watch hundreds of activist videos – but if you need a good argument when your uncle says you get no protein and will die – defiantly watch the science videos.

An important thing to notice is that I have not seen all the videos on every channel – but if you see one of the channels and realize it’s a crap channel – please comment so I can remove the channel from the list. And on the other hand – if someone is missing from this list please share and I will check them out – and if you think you should be on the list that’s okay too!

And for my Danish readers I have collected the great Danish Youtubers as well:

What I eat in a day!

So, I bet I’m not the only one who have noticed that “What I eat in a day” videos are widely popular and requested on YouTube. And I will admit this: I watch them too. In fact, I love “What I eat in a day”-videos. They are so inspiring and interesting and I just love the concept.

I find it especially interesting to see what people from other countries eat – because most of the time, I am like: “How do they live without rye-bread? Why is everything defined as snacks? Why all the processed food?”

But to be serious, I don’t understand how anyone live without ryebread! And about the “snacks”: In Denmark, we don’t do snacks like Americans do. In Denmark, we have 5-6 meals a day – and they all have their own name. Like the meal between lunch and dinner is not just a “snack”. It is a meal we eat together – a lot of people even set the table for this meal, and in rough translation it is called: Afternoon Coffee. This is eaten by almost any family with children and probably most other Danes as well. And it is not a snack! For us, a snack is what we accidentally eat between lunch and afternoon coffee. And just to be extra weird, we also have pre-lunch coffee and evening coffee as totally legit meals.

My Kitchen Equipment

I know a lot of people have a lot of different equipment in their kitchen. And I am no excuse! Therefore I have made this page with a lot of the stuff that I use the most.

The most important thing is my pan. Jamie Oliver Tefal

This is a 6 liter roasting pan that is oven safe! It is from Tefal – Jamie Oliver and it is straight up genius! I would love to have a bigger one though, since 6 liters is a little small for me. So I will probably be adding a duch oven of some kind to my birthday wishlist.

But anytime I am referring to frying or roasting og sautering anything, I will be using this!

Sistema 900 ml 

I am a big fan of leftovers – and more often than not I just reheat leftovers in the microwave. This Sistema Bowl is perfect for that, since it prevents drying out and it gets the food really hot really quickly. One other thing, that this is perfect for is oatmeal! You can make perfect oatmeal in this. And it is a very inexpensive piece of equipment!

The “Get to know me” Tag

I like this idea of a whole page dedicated to me rambling on about myself. It’s fun. And it’s even more fun when other bloggers do it. It’s like a little window into their lives. So I just copied the questions from Emma’s Blog, cause I liked reading hers. But if you have any more questions I should answer, just comment and I will add them continually.

1. What is your middle name?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Blindkilde. It’s actually a last name as a middle name, and it’s the name of my grandmothers birth home. ūüôā

2. What was favorite subject at school?
    English probably Рbut I kind of liked Danish and Math to. I did NOT like gym. I was very much of a sit down and listen kind of learner.

3. What is your favorite drink?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I don’t like any alcoholic drink whatsoever. So my favorite drink is a is strawberry/banana milkshake!

4. What is your favorite song at the moment?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I am very fond of Meghan Trainor right now – and “Better when I’m dancing” is so good. Also I’m very much a fan of worship – and “Set a fire” by Jesus Culture is the absolute favorite song for me!

5. What is your favorite food?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† My favorite food will always be Nutella – it’s a problem.

6. What is the last thing you bought?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I just bought 4 more glasses for seasonings. Since I’ve started cooking more my spice rack has expanded widely.

7. Favorite book of all time?
          I must say, honestly, there is no book I have enjoyed reading as much as the Harry Potter series.

8. Favorite Color?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I have always sworn to Green. Mostly because it’s the color of nature, and as a kid I lived near a forest, and really enjoyed being outside. But for clothes – I clearly have an overweight of red’ish clothes.

9. Do you have any pets?
          Nope! I do not stand the responsibility. I had 3 rabbits once Рthat was a huge mess and I am clearly not a pet person.

10. Favorite Perfume?
          Well, this is strange РI like the OLD version of AMOR AMOR by Chacharel Рby far the best perfume ever. The new one is okay too I guess.

11. Favorite Holiday?
          Christmas, definitely. Everything feels magic at chrismas! I love seeing all the christmas lights and decorations, it makes me feel like I’m 6 years old again.

12. Are you married?
           Yes. I married Sune on July 6th 2013. Best decision ever. He is a innovative tech-loving idea-full and very kind and patient guy, and marrying him literally changed every path in my life.Sune and Malene

13. Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I am not the most traveled person ever. I don’t like all the fuss and inconvenience of packing and traveling. But I have been to Germany for cheap Nutella like a million times – and actual traveling..? I guess like 6 times.

14. Do you speak any other language?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I speak English obviously – but I don’t spell anything right, spellchecker does. My native language is Danish, and I understand (don’t speak) some Norwegian, Swedish and German. Not a lot – but some.

15. How many siblings do you have?
          I have a big sister. Three years older than me.

16. What is your favorite shop?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I do not shop a lot. But I love Bestseller. It’s the group behind Vero Moda, Only and other great clothes. And I always buy my clothes on their webshop.Getting spring Sunburn

17. Favorite restaurant?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I don’t eat out that much. It’s very expensive to eat out in Denmark, so I’m still discovering new places. But for now I have a soft spot for Oli Nico – a little french inspired place in the Latin Quater in Aarhus.

18. When was the last time you cried?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Last time I cried was three weeks ago. I had my wisdom tooth removed, and it led to a temporary nerve damage. That was so painful for two whole weeks and it let to several occasional breakdowns. I still don’t know when the tingling sensation will stop.

19. Favorite Blog?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I love many many blogs. I love the concept of blogs – but it’s hard to pick one specific blog. I have a list of blogs and youtube channels I like – that’s probably the closest you get at a favorite.

20. Favorite Movie?
         I loved Coyote Ugly and Mona Lisa Smile even before I met my husband. But after him showing me much different genres of movies I will admit that Batman Рwith Christian Bale is the perfect trilogy!

21. Favorite TV shows?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I dont watch many tv shows. I like TV series much more. I’ve watched “Friends” more than four times – and it is still my favorite!

22. PC or Mac?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† PC. I have a secret hatred for anything that is made by apple – and anyone who buys apple products are my sworn enemy. I don’t know why. I am very sorry – and wierdly passionate about my apple-hate.

23. What phone do you have?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† I have a Google LG Nexus 5. It’s my husbands old phone and it is awesome. As much as I hate apple – I am just as much of a humongous Google Fanboy.

24. How tall are you?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†I am 1 m 64 cm. It’s not a lot but I am very happy with my height. I believe it makes me look much cuter! I have to believe that, since my sister is 1 m 88 cm.¬†

25. Can you cook?
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†Yes, I believe so. Nobody has told me I can’t. The most common mistake I make in the kitchen is over salting my food. I have ruined two dishes by that.¬†
