Rachel Ama on Veganism

YouTube sensation Rachel Ama spills the beans on her vegan lifestyle

Three years ago, this self-confessed KFC addict transitioned to a plant-based diet and has never looked back! Rachel Ama has built a YouTube empire – with over 200,000 subscribers – where she shares new recipes, lifestyle tips and useful hacks to help others who follow, or are looking to follow, a plant-based diet. Rachel also has a new recipe book out, Vegan Eats: Tasty Plant-Based Recipes for Every Day, which takes staple Caribbean recipes – inspired by her Sierra Leonean and St Lucian roots – and transforms them into delicious, vegan-friendly alternatives. She’s also passionate about leading an active lifestyle, and rejects claims that a plant-based diet dulls energy levels.

If you’re hungry for some new plant-based inspiration, you’ve come to the right place, as we caught up with Rachel to find out more about her plant-based lifestyle. She’s also given us a sneak peak of what to expect from her new cookbook with three recipes that are fun, full of flavour, and of course, vegan. There’s nothing more that this dancing queen loves than cooking plant-based food while singing along to her favourite music – so join her, by turning up the tunes and get cooking your next vegan feast.

About PlantBased

I’m super excited to introduce you to my first issue of PlantBased magazine! To kick things off, I wanted to combine two of my favourite things: veganism and fitness. Exercise is somewhat like Marmite – you either love it, or hate it – but we’ve rounded up a variety of tips, tricks and activities that will get you excited about lacing up your trainers and venturing into the great outdoors. As a vegan, how many times have you been asked about your protein intake? It’s a common misconception that plant-based diets lack this vital nutrient, but we’ve debunked this myth, by filling this issue with a host of protein-packed recipes, perfect for post or pre-workout meals. Head to page 35 to find the Tofu Skewers with Mexican Rice and Roasted Sweet Potato – they’re my favourite! Here at PB HQ, we love a challenge. So, send us your favourite recipe that you can’t seem to veganise correctly and we’ll give it a plant-based twist. This month, we made a Mushroom Reuben (find it on page 15) which is a classic American sandwich, traditionally made with corned beef. We may be biased, but we think our recipe is 100 times better than the original. We also caught up with YouTube star Rachel Ama, who gave us an insight to why she became vegan and how it’s changed her life. She’s also shared three delicious recipes from her new cookbook Vegan Eats. To see what Rachel had to say, turn to page 50. Enjoy the issue.
