Sam Turnbull Will Rock Your World With Her Quick & Easy Vegan Recipes

Going vegan may seem like rocket science at first, but Sam Turnbull is using her platform to make it easy and accessible. The author of the food blog It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken decided to go vegan about a decade ago, and she’s sharing quick and easy recipes with the world in the hope she’ll inspire other people to embrace the plant-based lifestyle.

Turnbull grew up surrounded by chefs, butchers, and hunters, and she never thought she would one day become vegan. Even though she was a huge animal lover, meat was a staple of her diet, but her outlook changed after she watched the documentaries Vegucated and Forks Over Knives.

Turnbull decided to go vegan, but she admits she didn’t enjoy it at first. Most recipes she came across features expensive ingredients that weren’t easy to find, only covering such dishes as smoothies and salads, so she decided to create her own.

“Not only were my new creations satisfying, hearty, full of flavor, and straight-up delicious, but they were just as easy to make as any other meal. With limitation came inspiration, and before I knew it, going vegan had become one of the best decisions I’d ever made!” she explains on her blog.

Turnbull was initially writing down her recipes just for herself, but she later decided to share them with the world, in the hope she’ll inspire other people to embrace a plant-based diet.
