October is the Vegan Month of Food. My theme? “Go Vegan with JL … In the kitchen!” {Vegan MoFo #1}

Happy Vegan MoFo! Yep, it’s October and that means it’s the Vegan Month of Food. Hundreds of food bloggers have signed up to blog at least 20 days – maybe 31! – about vegan food.  I participated in 2010, as a newbie blogger, and posted 30 days in October (recap here).  Last year I posted every single day in October and I even had a theme – all wrapped in a bow in my final, recap post on October 31, 2011.

Things are a little crazed this year, as I mentioned Friday, but I have a plan.  Lately I have been trying to focus my blog and newsletter content on what many of you are looking for on your vegan journey – the six modules in my Go Vegan with JL coaching practice.

  1. Your health and diet:  Working with the five fabulous vegan good groups
  2. In the kitchen:  Tips, tricks and techniques
  3. In the world:  Grocery stores, restaurants, and beyond
  4. Your compassionate home:  Build a kinder closet and environmentally friendly living space
  5. Meal plans:  Making a plant-based diet work for you
  6. The social vegan: Family, work and school

Recently I surveyed you,  asking what you wanted to know (you can still respond to the survey!) about going or staying vegan.

I’ve decided to use your “In the Kitchen” questions as my theme for Vegan MoFo 2012!

I will write 20 Vegan MoFo posts in October dedicated to providing kitchen tips and tricks.

Do you need help in the kitchen?  
Leave your questions here and I will incorporate them into my Vegan MoFo posts!

Today I thought I would share just a couple of quick ideas I recently shared with a blog reader. [click to continue…]
