Veganism is bigger now than ever. With many upset over the controversial practices in factory farms, as well as general shifts in lifestyle choices, people are switching to plant-based diets by the numbers. According to the Vegetarian Resource Group's 2011 Poll, 2.5 percent of the United States is vegan. 

While the benefits of veganism are significant, making the dietary shift is daunting for most people. However, since over eight million Americans are vegan, there are excellent resources available. Some of the handiest resources are vegan-focused food blogs. With relatable personal stories, helpful tips, and arsenals of easy recipes, here are some of the most inspirational and useful vegan blogs on the Internet today.

1. Post Punk Kitchen

Post Punk Kitchen began as a self-produced T.V. show. Although only six shows ever aired, PPK creator, Isa Chandra Moskowitz now blogs about her vegan recipes. She has a quirky voice and tons of drool-worthy recipes. The blog is laid out quite well with user-friendly recipe categories, main ingredients, and even links to helpful vegan websites.

Isa's recipes are easy-to-follow and would likely make any meat-eater salivate. Creations like Breakfast nachos made with a cashew cheese sauce and avocado salsa show off her ability to turn a traditionally meat and cheese-laden dish vegan. Another recipe that'd satisfy a new vegan is her Buffalo Chickpea Pitas with Ranch.

Whether you're into Thai, Italian, Mexican, or American cuisine, Isa has tons of delicious recipes that you'll want to make. There's also a forum on her site too, where fellow vegans share stories on making the lifestyle change, creating recipes, and learning about new trends in the vegan world.
