Vegan MoFo Highlights and “Food” For Thought

rect_banner_MoFo

I came. I blogged. I ate. I conquered…well, ok. Maybe I didn’t conquer. But 15 out of 20 Vegan MoFo posts ain’t too shabby. Not to mention that during MoFo I discovered so many new bloggers and was constantly inspired by other’s posts. These are just a few highlights from Vegan MoFo (and I really want to stress the word–few. I could probably fill a tome with the amount of vegan amazingness that I discovered this month).

Beautifully decadent (and gluten-free) Orange Notella Mousse Tartlets by Kylie from Fellowship of the Vegetable. I could probably eat the whole plate.Fellowship-of-the-Vegetable-Orange-Chocolate-Hazelnut-Mousse-Tartlet

A heaping plate of Puffy Nachos with Spicy Black Beans with a yummy nacho nooch sauce by Cadry from Cadry’s Kitchen. I made the sauce last night and it was fan-tabulous!puffy nachos with spicy black beans from Cadry's Kitchen

Spicy mac and yease from Richa at Vegan Richa. I love a good mac and cheese recipe and this has a nice spicy twist to it. Plus, crispy breadcrumbs!

And a gorgeous streusel plum cake from Seitan is My Motor that I definitely plan to make soon.

So at first glance it seems that Vegan MoFo is really a month about food. But underneath it all, it’s really about the animals. The focus is on the food because usually that’s the only thing that stands between a person and a compassionate lifestyle. But we’ve shown and continue to show that good food doesn’t have to involve suffering or dominion over another being’s life.

I am vegan for the animals. If it’s possible to live my life without causing them harm or suffering, then I would be remiss not to. After all, we share the same planet. Breathe the same air and come from the same stars. We’re all just here trying to live our lives, day by day, doing our thing.praying-mantis-0329-1

I’m on the V-List!

I was so thrilled when one of my all time favorite bloggers, Cadry from Cadry’s Kitchen asked to interview me for this year’s Vegan MoFo. I met Cadry (and her lovely husband, David) after her presentation at Vida Vegan Con this past May. She was so inspiring and her message of “being authentic” is something that I strive for every day in every facet of my life.

So of course, I immediately accepted the interview invitation momentarily forgetting that I am extremely camera-shy and mostly awkward when it comes to public speaking. But hey, awkward and weird..that’s authentically me. So hop on over to Cadry’s Kitchen by clickin’ on my mug if you wanna see the interview!

PS Thanks Cadry for being such an inspiration. And for giving me a cheat post for Vegan MoFo!
