1. Ashley Madden

1.1Ashley Madden

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Curious. Insightful. Disciplined. Dreamer. Silly. Sensitive. Indecisive (I changed this list 5 times…and counting).

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

The road I’ve travelled to get here. I’m a pharmacist, holistic nutritionist, and a plant based chef. My experience is a potluck of western medicine, alternative health care and my own health journey.

Being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in my early 20s lit a fire under my a*# to get my sh*t together and take care of myself! I discovered my gorgeous obsession with food and health along the way.

I believe, I KNOW, there is no need for compromise when it comes to health and delicious food. Ultimately, creating health supportive, satisfying cuisine is my passion, my jam, my vegan bread and butter.

I share my plant based, gluten free, oil free recipes through my blog along with pop-culture tidbits and some light hearted nonsense. I want to show people how truly easy it is to take care of themselves with food. Oh and laughter too.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Keep it simple! Keep it simple! Eating a healthy plant based diet does not mean hours upon hours in the kitchen with complicated recipes, nor does it require exotic ingredients!

No drama needed in the plant based kitchen. Most days my meals take 5-10 minutes to throw together. If we focus on fresh, whole food ingredients the rest will take care of itself. Pinky swear.

Oh and learn how to water fry (frying without oil and using water instead)! This will have a powerful impact on your overall health!

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

1.2. Ashley Madden

My 5 Minute Pumpkin Arugula Pesto. It’s one of my favs, not just because it is delicious but because of it’s versatility. I use it in pasta of course but also as a dip and sandwich spread. My most recent use has been tossing it with steamed veggies as a side dish. MMMmmm.

2. Ginny – Vegan in the Freezer

2.1. Ginny Vegan in the Freezer

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Inquisitive, driven, artistic, caretaker, naturalist, gardener, giver

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

Vegan in the Freezer offers a large variety of recipes that can help newbies transition to being a vegan all the way through recipes for hardcore health enthusiasts. I also offer recipes than can be frozen before baking/cooking or after. Just in case there are any leftovers. Preparing and freezing all of your appetizers before party day is another great option in which you can find all of the fingerfood you would like on the blog.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

A great way to keep many foods in small quantities for recipes is by using your ice cube tray. Freeze items that are often called for in small batches such as tomato paste, lemon juice, coffee cubes, wine and pesto.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

2.2. Ginny Vegan in the Freezer

A recipe you should try is Onion Soup Spectacular. It is fast, rich and satisfying

3.1. Ashley Melillo Blissful Basil

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Psychologist, Plant-Passionate Recipe Writer, Animal Lover

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

It’s completely possible to have your health and eat deliciously too! I love transforming whole, plant-based ingredients into a dish that nourishes from the inside out without sacrificing an ounce of flavor. With a little love and creativity, it’s completely possible to both care for your body and delight your tastebuds!

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Ditch the numbers — be them calories, pounds, points, etc. Instead, eat with the rhythm of your body and focus on adding vibrant, wholesome foods to your plate. Healthfulness isn’t about what we deprive ourselves of, it’s about what we nourish ourselves with.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

3.2. Ashley Melillo Blissful Basil

This Creamy Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup is the perfect example of getting the best of both worlds — it’s packed with vitamins and micronutrients and tastes every bit as dreamy as the original.

4. Lisa Le – The Viet Vegan

4.1. Lisa Le The Viet Vegan

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

My tagline is actually: vegan. Feminist. Nerd.

I think that about sums me up! Maybe add in Photographer. Weirdo. TV addict?

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

A lot of people come to my blog for the recipes, but I find that even more come for my personal posts. I’m very candid in my blog posts, often talking about life, relationships, personal growth… there’s a lot of self-reflection and often veganism ties into it.

Last year I ended a very long and significant relationship and it sort of tore me apart and I was very open about it (respectfully to my former partner of course).

My life is not nearly as dramatic as it was last summer, but there are lots of changes in my life that I’ve incorporated into my blog and it continues to be an outlet for me to hash out my thoughts while sharing delicious vegan recipes and photos!

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

If you aren’t vegan yet, it’s okay. Take small steps. If you find you can’t live without cheese, go vegan EXCEPT for cheese until you discover all the awesome vegan cheeses the world now has to offer!

Every little step towards plant-based living will help the planet, the animals, and your conscience =) And if you’re vegan but are having a hard time keeping up, just know that you do what you can.

It’s up to you to be a positive advocate and representative of the plant-based movement! Nobody will want to be vegan if the only vegan they know is bummed out all the time. Chin up, emo kids. You’ll be okay.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

4.2. Lisa Le The Viet Vegan

This is probably my favorite recipe so far because I’m really proud of the photos and how delicious it is: Vegan SUPERFOOD brownies!

5. Anna Pleus – On The DF

5.1Anna Pleus On The DF

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Outgoing, dog-mom, loyal, curious, on-the-go, dairy-free, hungry

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

On The DF isn’t just recipes or travel or restaurant reviews/recommendations – it’s all three! I’ve worked really hard to make On The DF a dairy-free lifestyle site, a day-to-day site that really encompasses all aspects of living a dairy-free life.

From recipes and restaurants to local and world travel, I try to not leave any tip/trick/lesson I learn out of the mix.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?
Two things: first, when it comes to baking and cooking dairy-free (and/or vegan), don’t be afraid to experiment with new-to-you ingredients. You will often be surprised by how many foods you actually do like but have been afraid to try.

Secondly, when dining out, don’t be afraid to make special requests, like swapping out butter for olive oil or asking for a different sauce. Most restaurants are more than happy to accommodate dietary needs, but you have to ask!

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

5.2. Anna Pleus On The DF

Depends on if you’re in a sweet or salty mood! If you’re craving sugar, I die for my Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding. For that salt fix, you’ve gotta try my Spaghetti with Wild Mushrooms & Dairy-Free Parmesan Cream.

6. Faith – The Conscientious Eater

6.1. Faith The Conscientious Eater

1. You in 7 descriptive words?

Christian, traveler, expat, vegan, kind, enthusiastic, low-maintenance

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

Ever since I was young I’ve been traveling the world. So much of my recipe inspiration comes from my travels and other cultures. I love to incorporate the experiences I have overseas into my blog and recipes and I’m often sharing about what it’s like to be a young American girl living in a smaller city in China. It’s always an adventure!

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Eating healthy and being active is important, but if these things are causing you stress, taking over your life, or keeping you from doing the things you truly love, then they’re no longer healthy.

At the end of our lives we won’t look back and say, “Ah, I’m so glad I was always stressed out about my weight!” Learn to be gracious with yourself. Eat well most of the time. Move your body. Enjoy life!

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

Since I live in the country side, my recipes are easy, affordable and made with widely available ingredients. Also, the taste is the most important for me – it has to be really satisfying and comforting, like hearty dinners from my childhood.

So if you are looking for easy, tasty, cheap and delicious vegan recipes that will please the whole family, my blog is always open!

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

If you are interested in veganism, I strongly recommend you to check out my free weekly vegan menu plans with grocery shopping lists. Also, my beautiful and instructional YouTube cooking videos. Being vegan has never been easier!

Here’s my video on how to make delicious vegan burgers:

Also, take very good care of yourself. Get plenty of sleep, eat good food, exercise and have the courage to live the life that makes you happy.

I try to make vegan good accessible to everyone! You do not have to be vegan to love my plant-based recipes. My recipes focus on familiar and delicious flavors with loads of healthy ingredients.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

I am a huge fan of owning a Vitamix for your kitchen. I use mine at least twice a day and couldn’t imagine my kitchen without it! Also, for recipe inspiration and detailed guidance, get my two cookbooks: 365 Vegan Smoothies and Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Creative, positive, honest, caring, yogi, almond butter lover, mom

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I think my blog is unique because I try and keep my recipes easy with small ingredient lists. I love to make healthier, copycat versions of unhealthy foods like twix bars, junior mints and oatmeal cream pies.

I also make a point to respond personally to every comment, email, question my readers have.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

If you are making the switch to a whole food, vegan diet, start slow. I didn’t change my pantry overnight. I bought 1-2 new ingredients a week and slowly built it up.

You will get there eventually. I also believe in wiggle room. Diets do not have to be rigid. I follow the 90/10 rule. Eat clean 90% of the time, but allow 10% of “cheat” meals. After all, you gotta live sometime!

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Former pastry chef gone gluten-free vegan

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

Baking Backwards reinvents your favourite meals and desserts for optimal health and a kinder world. All recipes are gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and allergy-friendly (all recipes contain no soy, no dairy, no gluten, no eggs — I also play around with grain-free and nut free recipes).

No mixes or stabilizers are used in my recipes — just wholesome ingredients. Natural sweeteners and whole grain gluten free flours are used in all baking recipes.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Gluten-free and vegan recipes can be easy to make, healthy, affordable and delicious without all the weird ingredients you tend to find in gluten-free packaged products.

Try my go-to all purpose flour blend (Combine 1 cup brown rice flour – 1 cup white rice flour – 1/2 cup arrowroot starch) in your baking to save money and avoid the unnatural texture-enhancing ingredients found in most gluten free baking mixes and products (like xanthan gum, cornstarch, tapioca starch, guar gum etc.)

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

10.2. Danielle Dewar Baking Backwards

This savory recipe and this dessert recipe you definitely must try.

Passionate, driven, a mom, compassionate, focused, determined, silly

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I’m Brandi, the creator and photographer for The Vegan 8 blog. My blog is unique as all my recipes are 8 ingredients or less, not including salt, pepper and water. They are allergy-friendly, as they are all vegan, oil-free and nearly all are gluten-free.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

I love to recommend to people who are considering the vegan lifestyle to watch Forks Over Knives. It is educational and eye-opening. We should all strive to be healthier not just for ourselves, but also for our loved ones. Starting with what we eat is the first step.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

11.2. Brandi Doming The Vegan 8

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I strive to keep my writing authentic and approachable. I want readers to feel that there’s a real person behind the photos and recipes – and that that person is absolutely in love with food and cooking and eating!

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

If you’re contemplating going vegan, don’t worry about perfection – there’s a lot to take in! Remove the pressure from yourself and make small changes slowly over time.

Slow and steady progress will mean that the changes you make will stick and before you know it, you’ll be happily and healthfully 100% plant-based.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

12.2. Annie An Unrefined Vegan

I have a crazy sweet tooth and I love chocolate, so I recommend my sugar-free Puffed Quinoa & Cacao Nib Chocolate Bars. They’re easy to make, are totally mouthwatering, and just happen to be one of the most popular recipes on my site.

13. Kelly Peloza – Seitan Beats Your Meat

13.1. Kelly Peloza Seitan Beats Your Meat

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Caring, introspective, reliable, organized, passionate, straightforward, honest

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I don’t use my blog as a platform to tell you all of the reasons that you should go vegan, but rather a place to showcase creative, exciting recipes that happen to be vegan, because I’m vegan and I write a vegan blog (if that approach inspires someone to become vegan, cool!

If not, I’m glad we share other interests!). I am a professional food photographer outside of my blog at Kelly Peloza Photo, so I like to do a lot of experimental food styling and photography for Seitan Beats Your Meat.

I like introducing other topics and interests into my blog, such as my Mad Men-themed recipe and food photography project!

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Most bloggers have complete creative control over their posts and content, so create something original! While it’s great to get inspiration from other blogs and food photos, trying to match the tone and style of your favorite blogs to create a larger following or get sponsored posts is the fastest way to lose interest in what you’re doing.

Your regular readers want to see something new, authentic, and qualitative, and I’m sure that’s what you want to create too!

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

13.2Kelly Peloza Seitan Beats Your Meat

My Vegan Lucky Charms recipe with homemade aquafaba marshmallows was a huge hit! “Aquafaba” is the cooking liquid from a can of chickpeas, or any other type of bean, you know, something people usually pour down the drain!

If you whip up aquafaba in a stand mixer with cream of tartar and sugar, it creates a magical vegan-friendly meringue that can be used the same way as egg-based meringue.

Since meringue previously did not have a stable, practical vegan version, chefs all over the world have been creating vegan versions of meringue recipes, and innovative new recipes.

When I made meringue cookies for the first time, they reminded me of Lucky Charms marshmallows, so I decided to try making them with aquafaba.

It worked well, and resulted in a vegan version of Lucky Charms! The tiny meringue marshmallows are piped from a pastry bag one by one, so make sure you set aside enough time to make them.

14. Kate Gavlick – Vegukate

14.1. Kate Gavlick Vegukate

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Always hungry, photographer, blogger, chocolate lover, kale obsessed, traveler, yogi.

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I started Vegukate in order to share my immense passion of nourishing the body with real, beautiful, whole foods that make you sparkle, shine, and feel invincible.

VK focuses on whole, unprocessed foods – most of which are plant-heavy. I don’t follow diet rules and I don’t like to apply labels to my blog or recipes either.

What you will find here are lots of greens, chia seeds, fruits, nuts, whole grains, vegetables, and of course – chocolate!

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

There is no one size fits all diet. It just simply doesn’t exist. Cultures across the world thrive and live healthy long lives on radically different diets composed of different fruits, vegetables, grains, meats, and fish.

With that said, my philosophy is quite simple when it comes to choosing your foods and nourishing yourself: cut the crap (processed junk), listen to your body, eat by the seasons, eat whole foods, stress less, and enjoy every single bite. That’s it. So simple.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

14.2. Kate Gavlick Vegukate

There are so many favorites: overnight oats, winter grain bowl, cauliflower alfredo pasta, quinoa pizza crust, and raw coconut macaroons. Yum!

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I’ve been vegan for over 25 years, which is more than half my life. I LOVE to share and talk about food and feel like my experience, friendliness, and creative recipes make my blog a unique and special place.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Here’s my exclusive tip for YouQeen readers: The biggest reason I’ve been able to happily and easily sustain a vegan diet for over half my life, is because I eat an abundance of delicious and interesting food.

I don’t believe overly restrictive diets are balanced or sustainable for the long-term. Veganism is not a diet, it’s an awesome, compassionate, healthy and always delicious way to live!

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

15.2. Kittee Berns Cake Maker

One of my favorite recipes from my blog I’d like every reader to try would be the Noochy Tofu Army and Salad Roll Whoppers. It’s one of the easiest and most delicious ways to eat both tofu and salad.

I set myself apart by focusing on sharing what I’m truly passionate about and inspired by. Putting my best effort towards being as professional, yet personal as possible. I love to incorporate talk about my family and my own struggles throughout certain blog posts.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Make the most of each and every day. Focus on attainable goals and break them down into manageable steps. Eventually you’ll reach the top, feeling empowered to strive for more.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be a must try recipe from your blog?

16.2. Margaret Chapman The Plant Philosophy

If you were only able to make one recipe from my site, it should be the Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake + Cheesecake Frosting & Cookie Crumble. This is one that everybody raves about!

I personally love to make it for special occasions/birthdays. You might be surprised at just how delicious it truly is, despite being a non-dairy/healthier version.

1. You in 7 descriptive words?

Compassionate, playful, sincere, travel-enthusiast & animal-lover.

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic

People often assume that being vegan is serious, stodgy, and boring. On Cadry’s Kitchen, I highlight how being vegan is a fun, energizing, and exciting way to live.

I demystify veganism through mouthwatering recipes, entertaining cooking videos, and articles on the social aspects of being vegan.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

.Freeze your ginger root. Not only will it last longer in the freezer, it’s also easier to grate with a microplane zester when frozen.

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be a must try recipe from your blog?

17.2.Cadrys Kitchen

I have been making chickpea tacos for years, and they continue to be one of my favorite weeknight meals. They are packed with flavor and take just 15 or 20 minutes to make.

18. Jasmine – Sweet Simple Vegan

18.1. Jasmine - Sweet Simple Vegan
1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Inspired, passionate, caring, creative, dedicated, fun-loving

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I started my blog simply to share recipes, but I have now transformed it into a platform all-encompassing of my mission to inspire others to live a life of positivity and consciousness. I strive to not only provide education on veganism and topics regarding food and health, but also on the importance of self- and community-connection, positivity, as well as mental & spiritual health. My blog is progressing alongside my own personal journey, and the topics covered and stories shared bring light to that.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Always remember that an intrinsic part of happiness is your health, and an important component of living a healthy lifestyle is remember to show yourself some love! What better way to do so than to gift yourself beautiful, vibrant, nutrient rich foods and the vitality, optimal health, and essentially ultimate happiness that come along with it 🙂

4. YouQueen’s Question: What would be must try recipe from your blog?

A must try recipe on my blog would have to be my Date-Sweetened Banana Bread. It is my most popular recipe and has got to be one of my all time favorites!

There’s always a sense of comfort that comes along with enjoying thick a slice of banana bread and a tall glass of {non-dairy} milk. It’s to me like sitting in front of a warm fire on a cold winter’s night (if you would even consider there to be a ‘winter’ here in LA).

The problem with most other banana bread recipes is that they contain dairy, eggs, refined sugar, and oil — things that I do not consume or include in what I consider a healthy diet.

So, I decided not only to veganize this nostalgic recipe, but to also be sure it is a healthy version that I could guiltlessly consume and enjoy. I created a healthy banana bread that is vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, oil-free and yet still comforting & delicious.

The ingredient list on this recipe is also relatively simple, I promise!

My blog not only features simple plant-based recipes, but I also share real-life inspirational stories, restaurant round-ups and articles on mommy-hood.

There are a lot of beautiful food blogs out there, but I wanted to incorporate all of my passions on one platform; that is how Ashley Gilday “Live well, Eat Well, Pay it Forward” began and continues to evolve.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

It’s not all or nothing when it comes to eating a plant-based or vegan diet. Educate yourself and do as much as you can. Forget about the judgmental people in the world.

If we all eliminated some animal-based products in our diet and lifestyle, the world would be a much better place for future generations and for ourselves.

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Committed. Learning. Passionate. Collaborative. Growing. Enthusiastic. Dedicated.

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I think my recipes are appealing because they’re simple, quick, easy to make and taste great. I use ingredients people recognize. My food photography probably does a good job of drawing folks in and then when they realize that this yummy-looking grub is healthy AND vegan, they’re stoked.

I’ve heard from several people that my no-pressure approach to veganism is attractive as well; I try to be as inclusive and welcoming as possible.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

Take your water game to the next level! Infuse it with grated ginger and lemon juice, berries, apple cider vinegar, spirulina powder, or other colourful super foods that make it special and more nutritious.

1 .You in 7 descriptive words?

Weird, Eccentric, Innovative, Honest, Realistic, Generous, Passionate

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

My special touch is the out right honesty that I write with on my blog. I don’t sugar coat things, I don’t say that something is the best recipe on this planet – because who on earth knows what the best recipe on the planet is?

Everything I have to say is real, straight forward and perhaps sometimes a little cheeky an inappropriate 😉

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

If you are trying to go vegan, start slow. A lot of people go “cold turkey” pun intended, but I suggest slowly and gradual swapping out meat for tofu, dairy products for soy/almond products etc.

Let your mind and body get used to the change and you won’t fall off the bandwagon. It’s a Lifestyle, not a Diet.

Curious, passionate, meticulous, indecisive, Libra (sorry, only could think of five!)

2. What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I make my food from scratch, using fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit, home ground and sprouted flours, nut butters, plant milk, whole spices and fresh herbs.

My work in the kitchen is largely influenced by my Russian background, which helps shape my approach to food in terms of flavor, but mostly in terms of the style/form/shape of my dishes. I think quite a bit about color too, and live by the wisdom that the more color there is on our plate, the healthier the meal.

New and uncommon whole food combinations are most inspiring to me and quite frequent in our blog posts. For example, I often take spices and herbs that are mostly used in savory dishes, and include them in my desserts.

3. Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers?

When it comes to whole food based and vegan meals, maximizing flavor means striving to incorporate vegetables and fruits that are at the peak of their season.

Seasonal produce is cheaper because it is in abundance and sun-fed, so therefore more flavorful. Use plenty of fresh herbs and freshly ground spices, and keep in mind that a squeeze of citrus juice can add a necessary final touch and help bring forward all the flavor of your dish.
