Deliciously Ella

A plant-based trailblazer, Ella Woodward’s Deliciously Ella brand has continued to inspire since the launch of her first cookbook in 2015. With a focus on “delicious ways to feel better” via a vegan diet and holistic approach, Ella’s instagram offers plenty of plant-based recipe ideas. According to The Vegan Society, “If every family in the UK removed the meat from just one meal a week, it would have the same environmental impact as taking 16 million cars off the road.” So, eating a plant-based diet, or reducing your meat intake, is a no-brainer – and Ella’s Instagram offers all the delicious encouragement you’ll need.

Follow for: plant-based pancakes, curries, creamy pasta dishes and more.
