Vegan Ladies that Inspire Us and You Should Follow
In celebration of International Women's Day this week we wanted to celebrate some of the inspiring women who have helped to grow the world of plant-based eating. As a female Chef, running her own kitchen, Chef Michelle often turns to other women for inspiration and ideas in helping us grow Good Stock Foods. If you are looking for vegan recipes or ideas on how to incorporate vegan plant-based foods into your diet, follow some of these ladies for all the inspiration you’ll need.
Vegan Eats by Rachel Ama
London based author, Rachel Ama’s debut cookbook, Vegan Eats, took the world by storm as she combined her passion for plant based eating and her heritage of growing up with Caribbean cooking. You can find her on Instagram sharing recipes and beautiful food photography at @rachelama_
Oh She Glows by Angela Liddon

After recovering from an eating disorder. Liddon shared her journey on her blog of how she learned to glow from the inside out. Her goal is to create plant based recipes that are crowd favourites.
Veganomicon the Ultimate Vegan Cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero
Isa is an American author, magazine columnist and former host of community access cooking show, Pot Punk Kitchen, and restauranteur. She has written a host of vegan cookbooks, but Chef Michelle’s favourite is Veganomicon. She loved watching Food Network but wondered why there were none that were vegan. Post Punk Kitchen was born and was a laid back show that aired on community access television in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and what led to Isa Chandra Moskowtiz and Terry Hope Romero to write their cookbook.

Whole Beet Bowls by Allison Day
Canadian, Allison Day, of Yummy Beet Blog is not just a cookbook author but a nutritionist so her meal-sized bowl recipes are all about full-meals. We love her vegetarian pantry guide inside the book and her Whole Bowls Formula – a formula for the correct grains, proteins, vegetables, condiments, garnish and cheese to help you build the perfect bowl.

Erin Ireland, Vegan Chef
Erin Ireland’s own website documents her own journey so well we couldn’t do it better, so click above to go read her full bio - but here’s an excerpt, “A rave review from a Michelin Star chef, a personal order from a TV Bachelorette, a signing session with our own Vancouver Canucks, a phone call from Dragon’s Den, and, most importantly, a growing appreciation from the community. The banana loaf had become a certified celebrity. Erin realized it was time to turn the hobby into a business. And with that, To Die For Fine Foods was born.”

There are so many amazing vegan Chefs and authors out there but here is an excellent start to expand vegan cooking in your own kitchen!
Chef Michelle would also like to recognize her own mom, Debbie Robinson, who she works beside every day and is just as dedicated and passionate about eating plant-based and sharing our Good Stock Foods vision as Michelle! Thanks Debbie!
Happy International Women’s Day to all of the female powerhouse women we know and love.
