The Best Vegan Magazines To Live And Love The Vegan Life!

vegan-magazine-feature

Call me old-fashioned but I still love flipping through glossy magazines! I know digital versions look modern, convenient, and all. But to me, it can’t beat a print in more ways than one.

So as a vegan who loves to read both books and magazines, I’m thankful that prints are not going anywhere! If you love magazines, whichever you prefer, most will have both versions, especially vegan magazines!

Now whether you’re into subscriptions or not, let me share with you the best vegan magazines I have read so far. For all things vegan: food, lifestyle, health, and even current events!

What Are The Best Vegan Magazines?

If you’re looking for vegan online magazines, or if you love prints like I do, this list has both! Although their range of topics vary, these magazines all aim one thing: to make vegan living easier and enjoyable!

Subscriptions are still a thing even with digital publications. They help you save anywhere around 50% against newsstand price. For this list, I have included the subscription prices for your convenience. However, do note please that these prices may vary per country.

Some magazine subscriptions also come with a handful of perks like discounts and exclusive access to other services. Isn’t that more value for money? But if you want a sample of their contents first, an email subscription of newsletters is a good start. That’s always free!
