Learn how to be vegan with our helpful online vegan cooking classes and helpful eBooks! We'll show you how to cook, balance your meals, lose weight, stock your kitchen, and more -- all with plant-based whole foods!
All of our vegan courses are based on the same "rules of the vegan road" that we've taught since we started VeganCoach.com back in February of 2007.
We'll show you how to design a vegan lifestyle that's highly personalized, so everything is completely customized whether planning a menu, stocking your kitchen, choosing ingredients to cook with, creating your own recipes or exploring effective weight loss.
We want to help you break through the boundaries you've likely grown up with, where everything about food and cooking is so strict including grocery shopping, cooking, even how you stock and manage your kitchen! Because my friend, there IS an easier way!
Being Vegan doesn't have to be difficult. It can be fun! And we'll be here for you every step of the way.

Get Down With Sass! Going strong since 2008! This online class is continually updated to reflect the most-recent changes to the best of whole food plant-based nutrient needs that encourage weight loss. I'll show you step-by-step how to shed those excess pounds and, perhaps more importantly, how to maintain -- for life!
Learn the steps to lose weight naturally and keep it off for good as you discover how to create a healthy well-balanced vegan diet that also promotes weight loss that works for the long term. You'll get a fresh, new idea of the food on your plate while you kick stress and confusion to the curb. Learn exactly WHAT to eat and WHY as you make important changes to your lifestyle that will support you for years to come.
This is the perfect course for you if you have weight to lose and it's incredibly helpful to new Vegans.
And if you're a "well-seasoned" Vegan and you can't seem to lose weight, this course will help you uncover what's going on and what's standing in your way. You'll also learn all about which ingredients and foods make up a healthy vegan weight-loss promoting diet as well as what you need nutritionally to create balance with every meal.
Your Vegan Weight Loss Set includes:
"Your weight loss course Get Down With Sass! should be required for every person who wants to lose weight. It's a clear, easy, and gradual way to change your lifestyle to be health-focused. I believe your program extends far beyond a weight loss program into a holistic lifestyle. That makes it sound intimidating, but the way it's introduced makes it simple and gradual enough that anyone can adapt quickly."
"Everyone who is on a diet should stop the madness and change their health the right way with this program!"
-- Christine Barnes, Raleigh, North Carolina
Vegan FUNdamentals! Out of all of our vegan cooking classes, this one was created just for those new to eating a plant-based diet.
This 6-week online cooking course teaches you everything you need to know to cook easy whole food plant-based meals.
If you're new to cooking plant-based, this is the perfect place for you to start.
Because you can't even begin to make a meal if you don't know which individual foods and ingredients to buy — how to shop for them, prep them, cook them and flavor them.
Only then can you actually pull them together into tasty meals that are not only quick and easy but filled with the nutrition that you need.
On-the-fly FREESTYLE cooking is what we've always taught in all of our courses and across our entire VeganCoach.com website. And this cooking course is devoted to laying the very foundation you need in order to pull it off day in and day out. Because once you get the basics under your belt, you can apply them to absolutely every dish you make -- whether you use recipes, or not!
Your Vegan Cooking For Beginners Set includes:
"I made the decision to move to a plant-based diet but this required that I learn how to prepare and cook plant-based. This course has helped me do that. Now I shop the Sassy way: Find the fruits and veggies that are available and then make meals without a lot of recipe action. I loved this course and the videos were so helpful. I have told a number of friends about it!"
-- Beth W., Lutz, Florida

In fact, you can make a saucy meal tonight! Get started right away. The techniques are laid out so simply, that you can implement them immediately.
Your Vegan Sauce-Making Set includes:
"I want to send my thanks for the Get Sauced with Sass! course. It really helped me out in making not just my sauces, but all my cooking in general, taste much better!"

This is one of our online vegan cooking classes that teach you how to make delicious and satisfying meatless Veggie Loaves from scratch without a recipe.
When you learn to cook recipe-free no-meat Veggie Loaves you can skip a day of cooking plus have delicious lunches ready to go (or store and freeze for a later date), find a use for all those odds and ends hanging 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 that you can all agree on.
This course will instruct you step by step into how to create your very own tasty and nutritious Veggie Loaves using simple tips and techniques that you'll not only find easy but that you'll enjoy because you'll tap into your own creativity in the process.
Loafing Around helps you create fresh new dinners every single time.
Your Loafing Around With Jeff class includes:
"Made my first two loaves yesterday! I just watched the third installment in the series and I can't wait to make more! I really don't know why it's so much fun. Maybe it was being up to my forearms mixing while my son added the seasonings I called for. Then seeing the fruits of your labor. This course has made me realize I had gotten into a rut, no longer creative with my cooking. Same ol' same ol'. My inspiration has been restored!"
-- Nancy McCutcheon, Port Huron, Michigan
Plan It With Sass! This is the first vegan menu planning course of its kind.
We'll show you how to get a fresh idea of the food on your plate! Learn to plan your vegan meals so you can choose the foods you love that also support you nutritionally as you learn about the vegan food groups as well as figuring out your unique protein/calcium/healthy fats needs and how to create a daily menu that delivers the nutrients you need every day. Plan It! teaches you step by step how to plan well-balanced, healthy, nutritious, and tasty meals that you (and your family) will love.
Join me as we take a walk through the information-packed Lessons filled with the best of advice about vegan cooking and nutrition that will get you in and out of the kitchen in record time. You will learn how to build vegan menus that you can use for the rest of your life.
Plus, all meals you create are not only good for you, they're good for the planet. :)
Your Vegan Meal-Planning Set includes:
"I loved your menu planning course Plan It With Sass! I have been vegan for a couple of years but I still learned a lot from this book. It has helped me, in a short time, make some changes that I can already feel are affecting me in a positive way. I am ready to stock my cupboards and start planning meals!"
-- Michelle Moore, Enfield, Connecticut
Welcome to Cooking With Sass! This is our flagship course, and one of our most comprehensive online vegan cooking classes. We open registration to this class three times per year, based on the season! You'll love this freestyle cooking course where I'll teach you how to step into your kitchen, see what's on hand, and get cookin' without a recipe in sight!
If cooking without recipes intrigues you or it's something you've been interested in but you haven't quite figured out how to actually pull it off in your day-to-day life, then you're going to absolutely love Cooking With Sass!
It's important to learn the skills to mastering freestyle cooking. Not only does this save you time (for example, painstakingly measuring out the exact ingredients a recipe calls for) but it saves you money too! How? Because you'll choose ingredients that are in season and at their freshest while priced less than ingredients out of season.
PLUS, when you cook without recipes you use the nutritious food you have on hand instead of tossing old and wilted veggies into the garbage -- sheesh, the money you'll save on this alone is likely substantial!

"Do you want to know something that I feel is unusual in taking this class? Well, I EXPECTED to have to go out and purchase different ingredients to make all the things you would have us make, right? Never one time have I purchased ANYTHING for this class! NOT.ONE.THING! So, I guess that means that anyone can benefit from these classes because it truly is teaching us to use what we have on hand already! In fact, I have only been shopping 3 times since these started and only bought staples! Way less than usual! I thank you for this! Glen thanks you for this! Recipe-free! XO"

p.p.s. Hi guys! I received this question today about our online cooking classes and thought I'd share:
Q: I am considering taking one of your courses and wondered if it is adaptable to vegetarian (with eggs/dairy)?
A: All of our courses are perfect for any level of vegan, vegetarian, or non-vegan. We simply teach you the vegan end of things and you can take it as far as you want to.
For instance, let's take Plan It With Sass! or Get Down With Sass! By the end of the course you have learned all you need to know to eat a well-balanced vegan diet so you're covered if you want to release the animal products, but you certainly don't have to. It's not a requirement.
As a point of fact, you don't have to be vegan to hang with us at all. No judgments or guilt trips here. We'll offer support to you wherever you're at on the vegan to non-vegan scale. We're cool like that. :)
Please let me know if you have any further questions about any specific course in the Facebook comments area below. Thank you!
"You are quality all over! Your courses are super quality! You really rise above the norm. So glad I found you!"
-- June B., Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada
"Love the Vegan Coach, and Sassy and Jeff are amazing at providing the necessary information and guidance to help you on your way to eating healthier and making the switch to a vegan lifestyle. Great courses!"
-- Andrea V., Carlisle, Ontario, Canada
"I just wanted to say thank you. Your website, eBooks, and tutorials have made a huge impact in my life. Late last year I chose to become vegan, but was lost in how to prepare meals and maintain proper nutrition levels. I randomly stumbled upon your website and it has become one of my favorites. I appreciate all that you and your husband have done in educating and helping vegans."
-- Valerie Johnson, Spring Lake, Michigan
"Prior to working with the Vegan Coach, I was an unhealthy, overweight, junk-food vegan that had no clue and had no idea where to start with what is truly a HEALTHY diet. I rarely cooked, and always the same boring things.
"Since getting plugged into Vegan Coach's classes, I now eat, cook and prepare delicious food with out-of-this-world flavor that my non-veg friends and family (and even my non-vegan husband Tyler) actually request!
"It has all been simple and easy to understand. I now know what it means to eat HEALTHY and have all tools I need, and the peace of mind that goes with it. If you have not started into their training and services, do it. Now! You and your health cannot afford not to."
