14 Top Food Blogs (Vegan and Carnivore-Friendly)

Looking at recipe videos and food blogs is one of my favorite ways to procrastinate. There are so many food blogs out there that I decided to narrow down some of my favorite ones. With this list, you’re bound to find something in here for you (hopefully). P.S., every odd number is strictly a vegan blog, while even numbers are catered towards those who can eat anything else!

1. Minimalist Baker

Olives for Dinner’s slogan is “recipes for the ethical vegan.” The author became a vegan because she felt funny when eating animal products. Now, she feels better than ever and that’s why she created this blog in 2011. Most of her recipes are not low-fat because fat is good and flavorful. From classic vegan crème brulee to fancy carrot lox ravioli, there can be something in here for every vegan (and non-vegan).
