Welcome to Live Eat Learn, where we’re all about easy vegetarian recipes that anyone can cook!
I know what it feels like to be bored and clueless in the kitchen. You want to eat more vegetarian but don’t know what to cook, so you settle for the same few things every week. Sound familiar?
Together we’re taking on this lack of inspiration to create something delicious!
Live Eat Learn got its start in 2014. Sarah, fresh out of college after studying human nutrition for 4 years, realized she knew everything about the health aspects of food, but had no idea how to actually cook.
This site started as a creative outlet documenting Sarah’s journey in learning to cook but has evolved into one of the leading vegetarian food blogs on the web, with over 1000 rigorously tested vegetarian recipes feeding 10 million readers every year.
Here’s How It Works
Every week we feature a new ingredient – carrots, quinoa, cauliflower, you name it! We’ll dive into the basics of that ingredient, then we’ll cook up delicious, easy vegetarian recipes with that ingredient. Ready to start exploring? Check out our past Featured Ingredients or head straight to the Eats!
Meet The Team
We have a small team behind Live Eat Learn who help to get you fresh vegetarian recipes every week – from social media to assisting in writing and research!
I’m Sarah Bond, vegetarian food blogger and creator of Live Eat Learn. I’m the chief recipe developer and photographer here on the site. I graduated from Penn State with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Nutrition, then kept that wild love of food going by earning my Master’s Degree in Sensory Science. Put simply, I just love food. When I’m not making or thinking about food, I’m probably out in the foothills of Denver, skiing or hiking with my pup, Rhubarb.
“I LOVE your recipes! Keep them coming. You’re the best vegetarian recipe maker I’ve come across!” – Jane
Who knew food blogging would become a family business? A certified personal trainer with a passion for nutrition, George enjoys researching and writing many helpful articles on Live Eat Learn, from common conversions to variety guides. When he’s not exploring new article ideas, he’s hitting the gym or finding a new way to cook up cauliflower.
Mika is a writer for Live Eat Learn. She is a California native who runs her food blog, Joy To The Food, with her husband. She’s always inspired by new food and if she’s not creating in the kitchen or writing, she can be found exploring a new coffee shop or restaurant with her pups.
Mitch & Justine
Writers and Photographers
Mitch and Justine are the dynamic duo behind many of our “how to” articles, teaching you fundamentals of vegetarian cooking. Both former registered nurses from Canada, they now live abroad and run their food blog Broke Bank Vegan. When they’re not in the kitchen, you can catch them traveling, scuba diving, and (most importantly) eating.
Real Good Girl
Rhubarb is Sarah’s chief shoot assistant and certified crumb catcher. When she’s not catching frisbees and napping, she’s taste-testing our dog recipes. Find her over on Bone Appétreat, our dog food blog dedicated to all things dog recipes, treats, and nutrition.
About The Recipes
My Bachelor’s in Nutrition opened me up to the world of cooking and health, but I realized I was cooking the same things every week. So I started Live Eat Learn with the hopes of breaking from my inspiration-less norms. Plunging myself into new ingredients every week, along with eventually studying for my Master’s in Sensory Science (a type of Food Science), taught me everything I know and love about food!
“I was freakishly impressed with the recipes but it wasn’t until I read a bit on the ‘Live’ section that I worked out why, they are yours, they are unique and they are healthy. We’re trying to eat healthy and find we’re eating less and less meat and your site just has me drooling and planning.” – Steve
The recipes on Live Eat Learn draw inspiration from:
- My childhood, growing up in a family that prioritized homecooked meals and lots of veggies!
- My travels, which have introduced me to boundless new flavors and ideas. I’ve visited 40 countries and am always out exploring in the name of food!
- My education in human nutrition and food science.
- You! My goal with Live Eat Learn is to create recipes that help you eat more veggies and stop missing meat on your plate. And with over 1,000 recipes on the site, we’re not slowing down!
I test each of the recipes published on Live Eat Learn until I believe they will work in any kitchen, then I take photos and video to show you exactly how to make it! If you ever have an issue with a recipe, please leave a comment on the recipe page. I personally check comments daily and will respond quickly to help you troubleshoot.

“So helpful with easy-to-follow explanations and great pictures! I am a visual and auditory learner so [these posts are] really easy to understand! Thank you so much for providing such wonderful informative content!” – Jordanna
Can I use your photos or recipes on my site?
Thanks for asking! I work really hard to develop recipes and create content. If you’d like to share a recipe, feel free to use 1 photo with a link back to the original post. If you’d like to repost the recipe, please drop me a note and we can talk about it!
Do you have a cookbook?
Yes! In 2019 I released my first (and only, so far!) cookbook, For the Love of Popsicles.
Why do you have advertisements on your website?
I know ads can be annoying, but without them, I wouldn’t be able to run Live Eat Learn. Having ads on this site helps to cover blog expenses (like web hosting, photo equipment, and groceries), and is my only source of income!
If you ever spot an ad that is inappropriate or offensive, please click “Report this ad” on the bottom right of the ad and we’ll work on getting it removed.
“Your recipes really are foolproof. Best instructions I’ve seen on the food blog.” – Vik
Where are you based?
I’m a Denver food blogger, though I spent 5 years living and cooking from my small kitchen in The Netherlands, where Live Eat Learn really got started.
How can I get in touch with you?
