Vegan Resources: Favourite Books, Documentaries, Videos, Podcasts and Websites To Help Inform and Inspire on Your Vegan Journey

Every single day on Instagram and in real life, I hear from multiple people who are in the process of or who are interested in going vegan. Word really is getting out that plant-based living is best for our planet, our own health and, of course, the animals!! If you’re just diving into the topic and would like a place to start reading and watching, consider these short videos, documentaries, websites, books and recipe blogs to help gather evidence-based facts. We’ve whittled this list down and chosen the best of the best pieces of media so you can rest assured you’re getting good information that’s also easy to consume.

My top tip for going vegan is not a great cookbook or a list of favourite meat and dairy alternatives…it’s understanding “the why”. Learn what’s happening to animals and you will never want to support the meat and dairy industries again. You will be so motivated to find alternatives and make those diet changes, the transition will feel easy. You’ll be excited to find dairy-free creamer alternatives for your coffee, meaty veggie patties for burger night and vegan cheese that is just as salty and smooth as the cow version. There is a vegan alternatives to absolutely every animal products. I promise…you will never regret going vegan. If you’re like me, you’ll only wish you’d done it sooner!

This list was originally created by my friend Zach of The Juice Truck, who would send it to friends and fam looking for info and inspo. I’ve added to it and will continue to add as new awesome content becomes available. If you have any suggestions please email me (erin at itstodiefor dot ca).
