Curious About Us?

Hi, and thanks for taking a second to learn about us here at Vegan Coach.

First, I'd venture to guess...

  • You want to learn how to stay on course with your vegan diet;
  • You want to achieve a level of cooking technique, skill, confidence, and inventiveness that can make you proud to be vegan;
  • You want to find a way to stick to a whole food diet that looks and tastes satisfying and keeps your taste buds interested;
  • You want to know your food choices are well balanced and support your good health;
  • And you want to do it all in 30 minutes or less!

Now, let me tell you the challenge that I know you're running into because I used to run into the same problem when I went vegan...

Bookcase of vegan cookbooksYou're going crazy trying to find recipes that you (and your family) will like.

You might even have a bookcase full of cookbooks but do you ever take the time to look through them? Likely not.

That's because you know every time you look through your cookbooks you have a hard time finding a recipe with the exact ingredients you have on hand.

Or you can't find a recipe that you can make in the time you have available.

Or you're hesitant to spend time on a recipe when you're not sure if it will turn out the way you expected.

Or what if (GASP!) after all the work your finished dish tastes like crap?

Okay, screw the cookbooks, you think.

Instead, you bring your search online, looking through website after website for the perfect highly-recommended recipe that you can make *right now* with what you have on hand.

Hmmmmm, how's that working out for you? I'm guessing not that great.

Because what are the chances you have on hand in your fridge and cupboards the ingredients any particular recipe calls for? Slim to none!

Who has the time to go through this day after day after day? It's exhausting!

(For the record, we don't have anything against recipes. There's nothing I love more than a lazy Sunday, with some Jazz or Tropical House playing in the background, a full glass of red, and the time to play around with a recipe I've had my eye on.)

If you're relying on recipes for your everyday cooking, my friend, there IS an easier way.

Here at Vegan Coach, we teach you everyday vegan cooking WITHOUT recipes.

As a Vegan since 1994 I can tell you with certainty that cooking without recipes is quite simply the fastest way to get in and out of the kitchen. Period. Exclamation point!

Spend some time with us and in no time at all you'll be stretching your creativity muscle while relying on a good ol' dose of intuition.

I promise you'll learn to look at your food in a whole new fun and inspiring way that will make you happy and energized about cooking!
