Vancouver writes!

Vancouver (and the surround area) is full of amazing, active vegans who want to change the world for the better. This makes me very happy.

But what makes me even happier is that so many of them write blogs.

Blogs are both inspirational to those of us who are involved in animal activism and an important means of getting the word out about animal exploitation and how we can live a kinder, more compassionate life.

I don’t know all of the vegan bloggers in Vancouver, nor do I likely know all of the blogs that they write. But here is my list of the ones I know (in no particular order).

Do you know of others, or do you write a vegan blog of your own? Leave a comment and let us all know about it!

The blogs

The Vegan Spoon
Only just beginning, this blog was inspired by Stumptown Vegans. Restaurant reviews and other sundry eating.

The blog of the mastermind behind The Vegan Spoon. She covers crafts, food, and the occasional bit about animals.

Sweet on Veg
Vegan sweetness. Plain and simple.

The Vegan Project
Two women who tried going vegan for a month, are sticking with it, and are documenting the journey for everyone to read.

Two Vegans on a Bike
They’re headed off on a bike trip with only what they can carry on their bikes. Hats off to them for having the guts to follow their dreams.

Living as a vegan in Vancouver, with some restaurant reviews and other miscellaneous eating.

West Coast Vegan
Another blog about living as a vegan in Vancouver, with reviews of food and some other stuff.

Super happy vegan blog, mostly covering food, from a Yaletown perspective, with nice photos.

Eat Raw Vegan
A vegan abolitionist’s blog about living as a raw vegan. Some nice reviews and videos.

Eat, Drink & Be Vegan
Dreena Burton’s blog. I think that’s all I need to say.

Pope Checked
Veganism & hockey. Yup, veganism & hockey. Unfortunately on hiatus at the moment, hopefully to resume in the not-too-distant future.

Caring Cook
A nice blog about everyday living as a vegan, with some easy recipes.

The blog from Karmavore, the area’s only all-vegan everything store, located in New Westminster.

Lost Swell
Birth Routes
Read Me To Sleep
Three blogs from one little family. The first is Robert’s photo blog (really great photos), the second is Amber’s doula blog (a vegan doula!), and the third is their family blog. Unfortunately, I think they’re moving away, so they won’t be local vegan bloggers for long.

Mud & Grub
Vegan ultrarunners!

Become the Voice
Vegan food, local area events, and some good posts on living as a vegan.

Heart 4 Animals
Local animal rights information, news, and events.

Evan’s blog with copious photographs of his baking and other food. Not quite local anymore since he’s off in New York, but we’re hoping he’ll be back when he’s done with school.

Blowing Up My Kitchen!
Raw veganism, with great tips on eating raw vegan and brewing kombucha.

Vancouver Vegan Examiner
Written by Genny of Blowing Up My Kitchen!. News and information about the goings-on in Vancouver’s vegan community.

Dawn of a New Era
Veganism and anarchy, plus some pretty good short fiction.

Me: Vegan
A vegan straightedge perspective on animal rights and vegan food.

Vegan Mischief
Vegan food with some great food photos.

Bliss In a Teacup
Vegan craftiness & vintage loveliness.

— Update —

Here are a few I missed, and some new ones:

Into the Eyes of God
Poetry, art, and more, focused on animal rights and human connections with animals and the entire world.

Vegan food. Wonderful, wonderful vegan food.

Animal Voices Vancouver
Vancouver’s only animal-rights radio show.

Paul Eats (Cooking & Baking)
Paul from Mojave loves to cook – and now he’s sharing his mad science with the world.

She’s been busy and not updating as much, but my Vancouver buddy Angela writes Pistachio Rose: 🙂

Oh and thanks for mentioning my “blog” despite my hiatus. I’m still trying to figure out an angle I want to stick with but it’ll be back soon!

Thank you for including my blog (and for referring to it as vegan sweetness). 🙂

I look forward to checking out the others!

Thanks Glenn! We’d love to start a Liberation Maritimes chapter… plenty of issues to address out there (SEAL HUNT).
