Welcome to Brand New Vegan!
I’m SO glad you found me! I’m Chuck and I’m a Plant Based Recipe Blogger!
I create and share wholesome, family-oriented, comfort food recipes that just happen to be made from plants. I’m a Vegan who follows a Whole Food, Plant Based, No Oil Diet as recommended by doctors such as Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, and Dr. Neil Barnard.
I created this website to help you transition to this new way of eating, because as somebody who has ‘been there, done that’ – I know it can be HARD.
But with familiar, comfort food recipes you probably grew up with – I know it can be a whole lot easier.
All of my recipes are free, so please enjoy and share with your friends.
