Welcome to Loafing Around With Jeff, a 100% plant-based interactive online course that will teach you how to use the ingredients you have on hand to make easy vegan, delicious and nutritious meatless Veggie Loaves that will transform your meals from boring to fun.
When you have Veggie Loaves on hand, you can skip a day (or two!) of cooking and enjoy a filling and nutritious meal created with the flavors that you love and that your family can all get behind too!
If you're ever...
...then it's time you learn how no-meatloaves can solve all of these problems, and more!
With our easy-to-learn recipe-free technique you'll use up those odds and ends sitting around in your fridge which really helps to eliminate wasted food to save you money!
If it ever seems to you that vegan meals are just a bunch of sides pulled together in various ways you're not alone.
Back in your pre-vegan days there was always a central focus on the plate. Something to build the rest of the meal around.
Sometimes it's hard to get behind the vegan diet if you're missing that one aspect of the meal that brought in a dense bite. (Plus, delivering that experience made it easier for you and your family to accept the vegetables off to the side!)
The good news is with just a few tweaks to your routine, you can easily create meatless Veggie Loaves — that you'll enjoy making as well as eating — that will once again give you that focus on the plate you've been missing.
Welcome to Loafing Around With Jeff, a 100% plant-based Veggie Loaf Making course!
Loafing Around is an interactive online class that will teach you how to use the ingredients you have on hand to make easy vegan, delicious and nutritious meatless Veggie Loaves that will transform your meals from boring to fun.
And you'll do it all without a recipe in sight.
What follows is a description of what you'll find contained in the course, along with testimonials from some of my students. If you have any questions, please let me know via our Contact form or through the Facebook comments below.
"Loafing Around really got me to step up and embrace "cooking on the fly". Somehow this course made me realize that you really can use vastly different spices together and come up with something from "not bad" to OMG!
"Watching you add the ingredients together in the videos took me from 'Hmmm, maybe I should just stick to what I know so far' to throwing all kinds of stuff together and not being afraid of the outcome!"
"I slowly walked out of work after a long week and trying day. A year ago I would have ordered a pizza or made a peanut butter sandwich for dinner. Not today. I pulled out a slice of the loaf from the freezer and put it into the oven. While that was baking I steamed some cauliflower and carrots. Next, I successfully made Sassy"s brown gravy, I have never made a good gravy until today. I smashed the cauliflower and added some Earth Balance, seasoned the carrots and adorned the loaf with gravy. It was good! I felt satisfied and not overly full."

And if you're from a mixed family (some Veg*n and some non-Veg*n) they're used to having their old non-vegan standby on the plate (like meatloaf, chicken, or steak), right? So if you attempt to replace it with something that you can all enjoy that's also good for you, all hell breaks loose.
Veggie Loaves to the rescue!
"I've been vegan for over 2 years and before taking this course I had only made one veggie loaf that seemed like a lot of work, and the result was so-so.
"Loafing Around! has taught me how creative, fun and easy it is make Veggie Loaves. Finally, a main course that says 'Dinner!' and doesn't just look like a salad or a bunch of side dishes! I'm looking forward to having frozen slices ready for lunch at work, or dinner after a long workday. So grateful!"
When you begin incorporating your very own homemade Veggie Loaves into your routine you'll...
"Before Loafing Around I was in search of a loaf recipe. I was not even sure it could be done. I tried some that I found on the internet and even tried to make a few on my own. No success!
"After taking this course, I can now have a loaf that I can serve for dinner or make sandwiches for another meal. I like the idea that I can make a loaf at any time using whatever I have on hand. The binder is the key, I could never figure out how to hold it all together after it came out of the pan."

Jeff here from Vegan Coach. I'm Sassy's hubby, and the Master Veggie Loaf Maker in our home. ;)
I didn't always make loaves like I do now. In fact, when I had the idea of making recipe-free no-meat Veggie Loaves I had never made one before in my life! But one thing I knew for sure...
Many of our Vegan Coach friends were having a big challenge coming up with meals that would not only satisfy themselves, but satisfy their picky family too. What was the missing link that would make everyone happy?
When I got to thinking about what most people ate before they went vegan, the answer became glaringly obvious:
Most plant-based cooks were missing a central focus on the plate that you can build the rest of the meal around.
Sure, you can do that with frozen, pre-packaged or processed foods—there are any number of pre-packaged and frozen "faux" chicken, beef, and even salmon that you can purchase! But...
What if you could create your very own "vegan meatloaf" made of healthy and organic whole foods without having to rely on the convenience foods? I could imagine this is a dish that anyone would enjoy, especially split households, where some are Vegans and others aren't. Everyone could get behind a well-made, delicious, moist and satisfying no-meatloaf!
Meatless Veggie Loaves are beautiful and can add so much to your plate.
...figuring out exactly how to make my very own Veggie Loaves chock full of vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices and other seasonings.
I quickly realized the most crucial part: The binder. Because if your veggie loaf doesn't hold together and cook up moist AND firm, it's not a loaf but a casserole!
There were a few failures along the way. But little by little I started to figure it out.
Of course, we had MANY taste test parties because-well, here at Vegan Coach Headquarters Sassy and I will use any excuse for a party. :)
It took a lot of trial and error to figure out the ratio of ingredients. And seasoning loaves are a slightly different ballgame too so the flavors come through in the final cooked loaf.
"This course has opened my eyes to the many possibilities & variations of my own Veggie Loaves (without needing to fear failure). It has offered me the comfort of knowing I can make something that is very filling & nutritious, easy to store & fun to make, without having to worry about next-day lunch or dinner (or even breakfast).
"Loafing Around has also helped me feel more accepting of myself—knowing I don't have to be little-Miss-Perfect (i.e. searching for recipes, printing or clipping them, having them on hand, buying each & every ingredient on the list - yadda, yadda, yadda... you get the picture). I'm the kind of person who needs a "breather" every now and then, and if I can skip a day (or two) of cooking it feels incredibly relieving and soothing."
There are usually 3 main reasons people don't make no-meat Veggie Loaves from scratch:
In a nutshell, they...

So In Review, Your Loafing Around With Jeff Package Includes:
"Before taking this course I had made veggie loaves maybe five or six times in 2 years, always from a recipe and was never happy with the texture or the flavour. I am now confident in making a loaf without a recipe, and love the fact that it means I am getting seeds, especially flax, chia and pumpkin into my partner who never eats enough of these. And I love having leftovers to eat for lunch for several days."

Q: I'm a new Vegan. Is this course for me?
A: Maybe. We consider Loafing Around to be an advanced course in vegan freestyle cooking. It's okay if you haven't cooked without recipes before. But it's more important that you have a good handle on which foods make up a vegan diet and how to work with them (such as how to clean and prep vegetables, how to prep and cook whole grains and beans from scratch). Is your kitchen (cupboards, fridge, freezer) organized and stocked with everyday vegan ingredients such as nuts and seeds, herbs, spices, and flavorings?
If not, we recommend starting with Stock Up With Jeff our complete vegan kitchen management course as a prerequisite to taking this course.
Q: I am the only vegan in my household. Will your course work for me?
A: This course is especially for you! As mentioned above, if you're in a split family with some Vegans and some non-Vegans, then meatless Veggie Loaves are the one thing everyone can usually agree on. Plus, since you don't use recipes you can focus on the flavors your family loves and leave out any they don't.
Q: How do I know if this course will fit into my schedule?
A: You'll receive one Lesson per day until the course has been delivered (which takes 8 days from start to finish). Each Lesson will take you approximately 20-30 minutes of your time. Of course, you'll also want to figure in time to make your loaves as your schedule allows. Once all the Lessons have been delivered, you can come back any time to review (for instance, on weekends) when you might have more time to play in the kitchen.
Q: How long will I have access to the course?
A: You will own the course and can access it at any time. There is no expiration date.
...creating your very own no-meat Veggie Loaves (that you'll enjoy making as well as eating!) that will once again give you that focus on the plate you've been missing, find a use for all those odds and ends floating around your fridge (no more waste!), and feel comfort knowing you've created a filling and nutritious meal based on the flavors you (and your family) love.
PLUS, leftover loaf makes the perfect lunch (hot or cold!)—or freeze for future quick meals on busy nights.
You're going to love this deliciously fun and creative Veggie Loaf making course!
Are you ready?
It's time to start Loafing Around!

"I have always liked the idea of loaves because they are convenient. I usually do my cooking on the weekends, since during the week things are rushed. And I love to use Veggie Loaves for lunches."
-- Elissa Johnston, Foley, Alabama
"I liked the whole course. It was fun and very interesting. And it gives me a nice challenge to get more veggies in my diet."
-- Melissa Burns-Palmquist, Mosinee, Wisconsin
"Before Loafing Around I tried a few recipes for vegetarian loaves that I didn't like. Now, it's easier to use up leftovers and odds and ends. And I finally have a good binder! I also learned to be aggressive with seasonings. The course makes it easy to "wing it".
