Female Vegan Influencers Redefining Fitness

We’ve seen the countless male vegan body builders, endurance runners, and professional athletes. But, amongst these men are tons of women defining what it means to be plant-powered.  Follow these female vegan athletes inspiring health, strength, and empowerment at every turn.

Bianca Taylor


I first discovered Bianca last year and am so happy that I did. Not only is she insanely strong physically but she constantly preaches the importance of emotional vulnerability as well. She’s transparent with her own mental health issues and past with disordered eating.

Another thing I love about Bianca is her contagious confidence. She isn’t afraid to be strong and confident in a world that often shames women for doing so.

You can find more on her story, and great interviews with others on her podcast, Badass Babe Radio

Maddie Lymburner


From travel vlogs to delicious recipes, Maddie posts a lot more than just fitness content. She hails the benefits of plant-based foods for the body, mind, and soul. I love her infectious optimism and willingness to share her story.

Not only is she a master of oats, Anna Winstone is also completely hilarious. She’s currently a student a exemplifies a lifestyle that’s not unrealistic, like many other influencers.

Moreover, Anna shares easy, delicious recipes anyone can make on her YouTube channel and Instagram. Anna always give me a laugh with her sarcasm and understanding of student-struggles.
