What is Well Vegan
Q: What is Well Vegan?
A: We started Well Vegan as a resource for the vegan and non-vegan community. We support a plant-based lifestyle, but if you’re transitioning or can only dedicate a few days a week to eating vegan, you can still take advantage of the resources on the site. We’re all about making plant based convenient, accessible and enjoyable. With a catalog of great vegan recipes, we provide a meal plan for the week, and even better, a shopping list of all the ingredients you’ll need. All you have to do is bring it with you to the store. For all you busy folks out there, we’re here to put vegan on cruise control.
We hope you find the recipes as tasty as we do. Our goal is to make eating vegan easier, so more people will make the switch. If you ever have suggestions about what you would like to see included, please holler.
Q: Will I lose weight eating a plant-based diet?
A: If you want to lose weight, a plant-based diet will probably help, but keep in mind that weight loss is dependent on caloric intake. If you’re eating more than your body needs, you’ll still gain weight. That said, a plant-based diet eliminates cholesterol and most saturated fats, greatly reducing your risk of heat disease, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Your diet will be centered around whole, fresh foods and not nearly as much processed or refined foods.

Q: When will I receive my first meal plan and grocery list?
A: As soon as you sign up, you can sign in and access your “Dashboard.” There you’ll find the past two week’s meal plans and shopping lists. You can always access meal plans and shopping lists here, but we’ll email the new list for the week every Thursday night.
Q: I really don’t like a food that’s on the menu this week, can I change it?
A: Sure thing. If it’s as simple as a single ingredient, for example substituting pinto beans for black beans, super easy. If it’s a deal breaker for the recipe, check out the recipe section on the site or a previous week’s meal plan and find something you’re into. Just make sure to add what you need to your shopping list and get rid of what you don’t need. Both the meal plan and shopping list items are numbered, so it should be a breeze.
Q: All you're doing is listing recipes and a shopping list. Can't I just do that?
A: You sure can and if you enjoy doing it we hope you will. We spend a great deal of time putting the meal plans, recipes, and shopping lists together. We see the value in convenience and hope it will help out a lot of folks without much cooking experience—and especially vegan cooking experience.
