1. Deliciously Ella
Deliciously Ella is a vegan bloggers diary of whole food and plant-based recipes. Its original intention was experimentation, trying out new dishes and recipes, and eating a healthy vegan diet to combat a slew of ongoing health (skin health) complaints. Not wanting to forgo flavor and only being an amateur cook, it features heavily in simple but popular recipes that anyone can try at home. It has since grown into so much more with cookbooks and even an app. A recipe that we love is the baked banana and blueberry oatmeal, which is a hearty and warm start to any day.
