You Remember The Place "Meatloaf" Had On Your Plate Before, Don't You?

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 our students. Thanks for checking it out and I hope to see you in class. :)

Nancy McCutcheon

"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!"

Susan Jenison

"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."

When You Learn To Cook Recipe-Free No-Meat Veggie Loaves You Can...

  • Delicious made-from-scratch veggie loafSkip a day of cooking;
  • Store and freeze for a later date;
  • Have delicious lunches ready to go;
  • Find a use for all those odds and ends hanging around your fridge (no more waste!);
  • Create a filling and nutritious meal based on the flavors you (and your family) love that you can all agree upon.

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!"

Here Are Some More Benefits To Creating Your Very Own Unique Meatless Loaves

When you begin incorporating your very own homemade Veggie Loaves into your routine you'll...

  • Eat out less while enjoying more homemade meals;
  • Experiment more while getting creative in the kitchen;
  • Have fun cooking;
  • Rely on recipes less.

"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.

So I set to work...

...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!

Taste testing no-meat Veggie Loaves with a bottle of wineThere 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.

If you're looking for the perfect meal to enjoy not only for dinner but for handy lunches too, then you're going to love learning how to make your very own Veggie Loaves.

In fact, that's why I created Loafing Around With Jeff.

Because I want you to learn how easy it can be to create made-from-scratch meatless loaves based on nutritious whole foods.


"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...

  1. Never even knew vegan loaves were possible!
  2. Live a life that's just too busy to figure out how it's done;
  3. Lack confidence in whether they have the skills to pull it off.

Once you discover how easy it is to make your own no-meat Veggie Loaves, you'll wonder how you ever got along without them!

I'd love to show you how to make your very own homemade Veggie Loaves that will leave you with endless possibilities and variations ensuring your meals are never boring again.

With Loafing Around With Jeff you'll learn how to have confidence in creating your own Veggie Loaves even if recipe-free cooking is a new concept to you.

You'll learn to use a wide variety of ingredients (especially all those bits and pieces in the fridge you can't seem to find a use for).

And best of all you'll learn to rely on your creativity and intuition which makes the entire process a breeze.

Believe me, if I can do it ANYBODY can. Truly!

When You Join Me In Loafing Around With Jeff...

...you'll learn the magic making Veggie Loaves can bring to mealtime.

I'll show you step by step how to create your very own tasty and nutritious Veggie Loaves using simple tips and techniques that I promise you will not only find easy but that you'll enjoy because you'll tap into your own creativity in the process.

We'll begin with a general overview of my loaf-making techniques before we dive right in and get cooking.

And Sassy even steps in to give you a few easy tips about making your own recipe-free vegan sauces from scratch that you can use to smother your delicious loaf if you'd like.

Here's A Glance Into My Loafing Around With Jeff  Video Course...

Loafing Around is divided into 8 Lessons that will instruct you step by step how to create your very own homemade super deluxe tasty and healthy Veggie Loaves.

  • Sink your teeth into a homemade no-meatloaf tonightDay 1: We'll begin with an Introduction and a general overview of the loaf making process. You'll watch a video that will give you a good basic idea of how the Loafing Around technique works.

    Next, you'll learn about the categories of ingredients so you can pick and choose from what you have on hand at any given time.

    And I'll teach you all about the no-fail binder you'll use to hold your loaf together every single time—no more crumbling loaves!

    Then, we'll head straight into our first Lesson with a video that shows you how I made a savory Tofu Buckwheat Loaf from the time I pull the ingredients out of my fridge until it's cooked and ready to eat!

    (Remember, these are not strict recipes you need to follow—in fact, they're not recipes at all but simply tips and techniques of how to use YOUR favorite ingredients each and every time. Don't like tofu? Don't use it! That's the beauty of learning how to make your very own recipe-free Veggie Loaves. YOU decide what goes in it.

  • Day 2: Today you'll watch as I make a loaf with, among many other ingredients, greens. Yes, you can have your greens and love them too! You'll really start to get the idea of just how nutritious your loaves can be.

  • A forkful of loaf with sauce Day 3: Rice-Millet Loaf is our focus today. You'll love how easy it is to use tender cooked whole grains and pull them into a Veggie Loaf that will completely satisfy you.

  • Day 4: Next up is a Smoky Veggie Loaf that had a great smoky spicy bite thanks to liquid smoke and chipotle powder. You'll learn how to work with varying amounts of a multitude of herbs, spices and other flavorings that will help each and every loaf you make become one-of-a-kind masterpieces.

  • Day 5: One thing I tried during the filming of these Episodes was to mix & match ingredients that sound like they wouldn't go well together, not only to show how versatile the loaf-making process is but also to demonstrate that even though you may think you don't have the ingredients at home to make a loaf, you probably do! My Garbanzo-Kale Loaf seemed an unlikely combination, but the end result was simply amazing.

  • Day 6: Today is Tempeh-Green Beans Loaf and wow what a fun taste treat it was, similar to the stuffing you'll find at most Thanksgiving feasts. Again, this is simply what I had on hand at the time. Every loaf you'll make is completely different from the one before, just as it is for me.

  • Day 7: My Black Bean and Broccoli Loaf was a spicy sensation thanks to the chili sauce I added. By now you'll really start to get the hang of what it means to cook "freestyle" without a written word to direct you; just you and your healthy ingredients. And then by reaching for something new, you learn what you like and what your family likes and that's how you get to enjoy more variety and flavors.

  • Day 8: In our final installment of the course you'll watch a video teaching you how to store loaf slices for the long-term. Each time you make your loaves you can keep some to the side for storing away. One of the great things about Veggie Loaves is that they can be frozen for up to six months so they're ready to go when you're exhausted or too busy to cook. This has saved us so many times from eating junk when both Sassy and I were too tired to cook after a long day.


Loafing Around with Jeff teaches you how to create Veggie Loaves that taste like what you'd expect to find it in a restaurant.

Loaves that not only surpass everything you expect in a fabulous meal, but also one that enhances your health because the ingredients are the best available.

But through it all—and perhaps most importantly—I want you to enjoy the process.

"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."

Questions about Loafing Around With Jeff

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 Vegan FUNdamentals, our complete vegan kitchen management course, as a prerequisite to taking this course. This is a beginner's cooking course and is perfect for those new to eating a plant-based diet.

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.

Q: What is your refund policy?
A: With your purchase of Loafing Around With Jeff you receive our personal money-back guarantee so you can feel as confident as we are that you'll love this online course. If at any time you feel you did not get your money's worth, then you can request a full refund. We want you to be happy!   :)

Heart with quotes

"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".
-- Brenda Jenkins, Caribou, Maine

"I found the binder helpful. (I had used mashed potatoes in the past and it did not turn out as a loaf…more like a veggie mash!) I like the idea of doing the work once and then can freezing for future meals."
-- Rita Moore, Rio Grande, NJ
