In a creative, sustainable & self-compassionate way.

The truth:

You’re not expected to be a hemp-dressed or dreadlock-haired hippy just because you want to learn about plant-based foods (even though it feels that way, sometimes).


Introducing the Vegie Head Academy:

The world’s first plant-based online cooking course.

All of the answers you seek. With zero judgement. It’s a course for people who crave the knowledge & practical skills (not to mention the heart-centred delivery) required for a plant-based diet. Because life is already complex, this course is designed to replace a sometimes negative charge around what you eat & why.

It’s simple really. You will learn how to nourish your body, mind + soul. Why should it be more complicated than that?

  • Who Am I?

    bali 2014 fruit

    I’m Adele McConnell, creator of Vegie Head

    My mission is simple: I’m here to show you that plant-based doesn’t have to be boring. I’m here to make delicious food & spread the vegie head love.

    I’m an enlightening, published author of The Vegan Cookbook, and of 6 ebooks + recipe evolutionist who writes for national magazines.

    My website, won Vegan blog of the year in 2012 & maintains a top 20 position.

  • Why I created the Vegie Head Academy:

    When I first started exploring veganism at the age of 16, I had no idea how to get correct information without feeling suffocated by rigid & uncompromising moral views. I had to teach myself. And I would have loved to have had a truly compassionate teacher, gently guiding me through the process.

    I see now that my life purpose was to become that truly compassionate teacher. My mission? To light a path for those seeking non-judgemental guidance while eating for pure health. This is not about rigid dogma, black & white thinking. No, the Vegie Head lifestyle is about the gratitude & glory of eating in a way that feels good.

    Today, I am a living example that you can be passionate about plant-based eating, without pissing your friends & family right off. I don’t believe in excluding or judging people & I’ve felt the pain of being deeply misunderstood for voicing this opinion. My family -in fact my husband - do eat meat, but they absolutely love the plant-based foods I entice them with.

    I feel sad that so many people who would benefit from learning about - and gobbling up - delicious plant-based food, are scared of feeling judged or like they have to start viewing the meat-eating people negatively just because they want greater health & vitality.

  • Who I created this for:

    For you.

    Whether or not you've just started your journey, are struggling on it, or just want to feel inspired, I created this for you.

    Everyday I get inundated with questions like…

    • I’m a Vegan. What do I feed my non-vegan friends so they still visit?
    • What nutrients do I need the most?
    • My daughter’s stopped eating meat, what the hell do I feed her?
    • How do I cope with pressure to explain my food choices?
    • How can I feel your passion for plant-based foods, when I feel so limited?

    And this is why I created this course. To show you exactly how to make divinely delicious plant-based food. To hold your hand through the transition. And to supply you with knowledge, not value-judgements.

    In fact, I’m known for my non-judgemental style and my vibrantly-stylish Vegie-know-how. There ain’t no deprivation here, folks!
