The Ultimate Guide to Free Vegan Recipes

We spend hours each day on our phones instead of interacting with real human beings 

This has made many of us feeling more lonely and dissatisfied with life. 

Luckily, you can customize social media and choose who and what to give your precious attention to.

Time spent looking at content is like liquid gold to companies. Through social media, you can essentially vote for the products and ideas that you want to see more of in the world.

Tell them what you want to see more of by making a feed of free, fresh content out of your platforms. Most of my accounts either have something to do with vegan food, outdoor activities, publications about the aforementioned topics, and/or girls in bikinis.

This is a huge, free, and easy way to make sure that you don’t feel alone. You can talk with these people and see what they live like, and how they have overcome many of the obstacles you face ahead.

Pinterest: Search for “vegan + (meal type)” and find thousands of hits.

Most of these include photos that directly link to blogs who offer free recipes. It pays for them to create new, innovative, attractive recipes so that they can get new visitors to their sites. It’s a win-win!

Facebook: groups, Pages, and how-to videos

Scroll on your personal feed if you follow some of the accounts listed below, and you’ll be sure to find links to recipes.

Surrounding yourself with positive messages is a great way to use social media against itself.

For example, we all can relate to scrolling endlessly on our Facebook feed, looking at negative comments and comparing ourselves to photos of friends. Instead, start unfollowing people who are not positive influences, and start following accounts that inspire you!

Scrolling through endless photos of healthy food and positive activities can have a better effect on your time wasted on your phone— the new accounts may give you new ideas for recipes and workouts, or time-saving hacks that you may never have thought of on your own.

Some of my favorite pages to follow include Vegnews, One Green Planet, Forks Over Knives, Minimalist Baker, Vegan Richa, and a truly amazing video site: Bosh!

Instagram: I am currently vegan, in major part, thanks to Instagram.

This platform has been seriously one of the easiest ways for me to find recipes for free that look utterly beautiful and delicious.

In order to do this, I use the search hashtag feature, and simply type in a hashtag that I want: for example, if you type in “nicecream”, you'll find rows upon rows of beautiful frozen banana treats!
