Yummy Plants: a vegan lifestyle website and community. We can help you start a vegan diet!

Yummy Plants 101. Love Life. Vegan. New Organic Tees from Yummy Plants!


Welcome to Yummy Plants!

The Yummy Plants mission is to celebrate and share the joy of vegan food, connect vegans all around the world, and show you how easy it is to start eating vegan.

If you’re new to the vegan world, learn how easy it is to start eating vegan. There’s a start-here section for beginners to help you on your journey and you can pick up a copy of It’s Easy to Start Eating Vegan in print or for your Kindle. You’ll see how easy it really is to choose plant-based eating, how many options you have, and how yummy it is! (You can still have your favorite foods like vegan pizza and vegan mac and cheese!)

Eating vegan  is…

  • good for the planet  (we reduce our carbon footprint).
  • good for resources (we can feed more people using the same amount of arable land and water).
  • good for our health (can reverse heart disease, diabetes,  and obesity).
  • absolutely good for the animals!
Meet the team who brings you the Yummy Plants website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram content and our YouTube videos!
