October is Vegan Month of Food. Organised by Isa Moskowitz & Terry Romero creators of the Post Punk Kitchen and authors of three awesome vegan cookbooks – Vegonomicon, Vegan with a Vengeance and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. The aim of Vegan MOFO is to blog as much as possible about vegan food during the month of October, as it is now the 6th October and I have missed 6 days of Vegan MOFO I will keep Fuss Free Flavours vegan until the 6th November.
Although I am not vegan I eat vegan about 90% of the time; my motivation for this is largely health and environment driven, I feel fabulous eating a plant based diet, there are very very few things I actually miss out on, vegan food is healthy, but there are all manner of treats that you can make, cakes and biscuits and comfort food. It is not all cabbage and lentils. Tofu, tempeh and setian all sound scary but they are all delicious and easy to cook.
I will write more about the environment and health and vegan diets later in the month, but in the mean time please try a new vegan dish. Cook tofu or tempeh, switch to soy milk, try and bake egg free and realise that there are so many healthy vegan options out there that you wil not feel deprived. More importantly please use the month to examine your diet and where your food comes from, thinking about your health, the environment and animal welfare.
