January MiniMoFo Round-up

The first month of 2017 is over! We hope the new year has given you opportunities to try lots of new vegan food as per our MiniMoFo prompt. It’s been great to see the posts and pictures that have been shared!

@garrickstegner

janroundup1

Garrick used a new-to-him krumkake machine (passed down through his family!) to make fortune cookies. Isn’t it a beautiful piece of equipment?

@madhatterspantry

janroundup2

The Mad Hatter’s Pantry visited a burger restaurant which was doing a discount on vegan food. They had a cajun burger and oreo milkshakes – all vegan! It’s great to see restaurants trying new vegan food.

RubberCowGirl

janroundup3

Rachael has been posting a step-by-step guide on “How to Go Vegan”, which includes the task of “trying new foods”. She made beautiful spring rolls stuffed with watermelon radishes!

@zuckerbaby.1

janroundup4

Zuckerbaby made buffalo tofu for the first time, and doesn’t it look mouth-wateringly delicious?

Living The Dream – Deer Run B&B

Jen from the Deer Run Bed & Breakfast produced this amazingly informative video about “fire cider”. I’ve never heard of it before, but it certainly sounds interesting!

Herbivore’s Heaven

janroundup5

Jenny did a blog post with new vegan products she’s tried – including these chocolate filled churros – yum!

My Apologies for the Novel

janroundup6

Julie has been trying a new recipe each week this month, including these Lentil Sloppy Joes served with waffle fries.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s MiniMoFo! It’s been wonderful reading about all the food you’ve been eating.

Looking forward to February, we’re going with a coloured theme – Red. As usual, interpret this any way you want – red meals, red ingredients, even red cutlery – just show us something with the theme of “red”. Remember to tag us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook with the tags #VeganMoFo and #MiniMoFo!

Vegan in Australia

One of our new VeganMoFo initiatives is to showcase some of the great vegan destinations around the world.  We have participants in VeganMoFo from all around the world which gives us a wonderful opportunity to find out what it’s like to be vegan in all different places. This month, we’re kicking off with a whole country:  Australia!

Aus

Susan from Kittens Gone Lentil  has shared this brilliant guide to her native Brisbane, featuring her top five vegan spots (and numerous other suggestions too).  She also has lots of posts about other Australian cities that would be great for helping you to plan a trip to Australia:

LVB

And Susan is not our only Vegan MoFo’er from Australia.  Head over to Little Vegan Bear for a huge variety of beautifully photographed  restaurant reviews (both in Australia and New Zealand) and travel guides.

Veganopolous

Faye from Veganopolous is a Melbourne-based blogger who has a large list of  reviews and posts about the vegan scene there – split into districts for ease of reading!

australia

Five time VeganMoFo-er Johanna at Green Gourmet Giraffe is also Melbourne based and has written a guide to eating vegan there too.Chart

If you’re interested in the vegan scene in Australia, check out the findings of this survey of 726 Australian vegans conducted by Hesham Mahdi.  Amongst other things, you can find out their reasons for going vegan and any books or documentaries that were contributing factors. Hesham’s website, Vomad, also has a free downloadable vegan product guide to Australia for those interested in finding out more.

 

In February we’re getting all romantic on you and preparing a Vegan in Paris post.  If you would like to contribute, please get in touch via email or message us on social media.  We’re looking for:

  • a review of an eatery in Paris
  • a veganised French recipe
  • any tips about buying vegan food in Paris – what to look for in supermarkets or shops
  • anything else you’ve got up your sleeve about the vegan scene in Paris

Social Media MoFo’er of the Month

One of the main aims of Vegan MoFo is to give you all the chance to expand your vegan network and discover new plant-based blogs and social media accounts.  This year we’re going to bring you a blog and social media account of the month to help you find some of the most active and inspiring vegan feeds out there.

HLL (3)

We’re starting with Instagrammer Happy Little Lunch, who posts almost daily photos of the packed lunches she makes for her vegan kindergartener.  As soon as you see them you’ll wish that she were packing you off with your lunch as well!  We’ve seen themed lunchboxes for Halloween and Christmas, as well as some great tie-ins with the VeganMoFo prompts.

We chatted with Honora, the woman behind the account, to find out where she gets her inspiration and what the kindergarten crowd thinks of these little boxes of goodies!

HLL (2)

How long have you been vegan?

Nine years.

HLL (5)

What inspired you to get onto Instagram?

My older daughter was about to start kindergarten and I knew I’d be packing her lunch every day, which felt a little intimidating – I’d packed a lot of lunches in my day, but always for adults. A few days before school started, I decided on a whim to start this account to (a)keep myself accountable as far as the variety and quality of her food goes, and (b)not overwhelm my personal IG with food pics.

hll4

What’s the best feedback you’ve had on your packed lunches?

A couple of people have told me they look forward to packing lunches like mine for their future vegan kids – that makes me smile.  And in real life, my daughter has gotten a lot of positive comments about her lunches from the staff and students at school – I like that we’re representing veganism well and I love that she feels proud of her food.

hll5

Are there any other vegan social media accounts that you’re hooked on?

So many!  I really love @myzoetropeeats – Michelle’s photos are always so colourful and enticing and just make me happy.

I also love seeing what @jayastafacateringandevents creates.  I remember him posting years ago – I believe when he was still a teenager – on the old PPK forum about adding vegan items to the menu at his family’s restaurant on Long Island.  Seeing how far he’s come and his incredible creativity is really inspiring!

hll2

Where do you get your packed lunch inspiration from?

Mostly from what’s in the fridge!  But the PlanetBox lunchbox I use has actually been really helpful for planning purposes – thinking of the different compartments as main/veg/fruit/etc makes packing a balanced lunch less daunting.

HLL (4)

Do you have any favourite cookbooks and cuisines?

Isa [Chandra Moskowitz] and Terry [Hope Romero] are my forever faves.  I also really like Chloe Coscarelli’s recipes and find them to be very kid-friendly.  And I feel like Dreena Burton is the queen of vegan recipes created with kids in mind.  As far as cuisines go, I’ll try anything!

HLL (1)

What do you cook when you’re not making packed lunches?

Breakfast and dinner!  Our evenings are busy and I make a lot of bowl-type meals and stir fries that come together quickly.  I got an Instant Pot recently and have been having fun with that too.  I love to bake but don’t have much of a sweet tooth, so I really look forward to fundraisers and events that allow me to make desserts for other people.

hll3

Make sure you check out @happylittlelunch yourself – this is an Instagram account that will revolutionise your approach to lunch, whether you’re preparing for a child, loved one or just yourself.  You’re never too old for a rice and kidney bean panda, are you?!

December MiniMoFo Roundup

We asked you to share your posts on the theme of hot cocoa in December, and this is what you gave us!

@dauliflower

Perfect mug, perfect drink, perfect marshmallows:  they are pumpkin and candy cane flavoured!

mm-dec-round-up

@odilejp

Top tip from Odile:  top your hot cocoa with some leftovers from your latest aquafaba meringue mixture.

mm-dec-round-up-2

@lisasprojectvegan

Hot cocoa two ways:  we know Lisa is serious about making delicious vegan treats!  They’re both made with homemade macadamia nut milk. Yes, please!

mm-dec-round-up-3

My Apologies for the Novel

Dandies make another appearance on Julie’s blog, making her homemade peanut butter cocoa mix even fancier!  And look, another great mug!

mm-dec-round-up-4

@emmholmess

What I wouldn’t do to wrap my hands around one of these giant mugs of cocoa on a wintry day!

mm-dec-round-up-6

Walks, Talks & Eats

Emma has transformed the traditional hot cocoa and marshmallows into cupcake form.  What could be better?!  The recipe for the cakes includes chocolate milk, cocoa and melted chocolate.  This sounds like something we all need to get on board with!

mm-dec-round-up-5

@veganistamama

Veganista Mama made the 5 minute hot cocoa from Minimalist Baker, topped with coconut whip and a mini candy cane for flavour.  Yum!  Ginger-choc-chip loaf and choc-chia pudding on the side, optional.

mm-dec-round-up-7

@garrickstrenger

Garrick treats us to a breakfast take on hot cocoa:  chocolate peppermint rice porridge with coconut whipped cream and a chocolate spoon.  That’s the way to start the day!

mm-dec-round-up-8

@pepajobo

And sticking with the breakfast theme, feast your eyes on this!  Churros with a thick, rich pot of hot chocolate for dunking.

mm-dec-round-up-9

@rosamiex

Rosie treats us to this chocolate orange hot chocolate, with lots of cute pugs thrown in for good measure!

mm-dec-round-up-10

@nicolearciello

And getting back to cake:  Nicole’s Instagram is the place to be if you enjoy looking at delicious food while your stomach grumbles.  She has a lot of tempting baked goods on there, and she certainly didn’t disappoint with this beautiful cupcake, which is chocolate cake, marshmallow buttercream filling, chocolate buttercream on top, plus mini marshmallows, crushed candy canes and hot cocoa mix.  Delicious!

mm-dec-round-up-11

@dimsimkitty

Susan is in the southern hemisphere, so this drink is far cooler than it appears!  She’s made Minimalist Baker’s chocolate super powered shake, with a helping of cashew ice cream.  It still looks so festive!

mm-dec-round-up-13

Herbivores’ Heaven

Jenny shares the best hot chocolate spot in Manchester, with several delicious, all-vegan flavours.

bonbon-2

@vegansneedsauce

And another twist on hot cocoa: this chocolate mug cake looks perfect for lazy winter days!  Don’t worry, Emily’s given you the full recipe if you want to recreate it over the holidays.

mm-dec-round-up-14

@ichibanvegan

We’ve had cupcakes and mug cakes, now it’s time for cookies!  Jess has reposted these hot cocoa cookies from last year, and it’s easy to imagine they’ll become a classic recipe.

mm-dec-round-up-15

@degroenekeuken

Sara’s special twist on hot cocoa is…dates!  Yep, these festive drinks are sweetened with dates and topped with whipped cream.

mm-dec-round-up

@tahinikill

This may look like another wintry hot chocolate, but Renee is another southern hemisphere mofo’er, so what she’s actually whipped up is a cool chocolate cherry breakfast smoothie!

mm-dec-round-up-16

Living the Dream

Sneaking in just before the deadline, Jen has treated us to this matcha white hot chocolate.  That sounds like something we have to try!  We love those holiday cookies too!

mm-dec-round-up-20

 

Thank you to everyone who participated.  We hope you’ve enjoyed the hot cocoa posts as much as we have at Vegan MoFo HQ.  Check back in with us at New Year for an announcement about our plans for 2017, including more MiniMoFo Challenges, the month of VeganMoFo 2017, and the winner of the cookbook.

Till then, happy holidays!

December MiniMoFo

We hope you’ve enjoyed a well-earned break after November’s non-stop vegan food extravaganza!  Before you get too relaxed though, we’re putting you back to work with another MiniMoFo theme.

15356880_1408337569207132_1280707537_n

Thank you to those of you who have already completed our Vegan MoFo 2016 survey.  If you haven’t filled it in yet, please take a few minutes now – your feedback is really valuable to us, and you’ll be in with a chance of winning a cookbook too.

The initial feedback suggests that most of you would like to see a bit more from us, so we’re going to make some announcements in January about our plans for the future.  In the meantime, we’re setting you another MiniMoFo challenge!

Just like the challenges in the run up to November, this is a voluntary exercise and you can participate in any way you like.  Here’s how it works:

  • We share a challenge, you have two weeks to make and share a dish using the #MiniMoFo tag on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or comment here with a link to your blog. That’s it!
  • We’ll feature your dishes as we go and do a round-up at the end of each challenge.
  • You can participate in MiniMoFo even if you didn’t take part in VeganMoFo in November.
  • No sign-ups are required!

 

December Challenge:  Hot Cocoa

December 7 – December 23

Have you got a special hot cocoa recipe up your sleeve?  Do you cook or bake anything with a hot cocoa twist?  To our Southern hemisphere friends, can you treat us to an iced chocolate instead?  Get creative and show us what you’ve come up with!

However you participate, remember to help us to find your blog or social media posts by using the hashtag and sharing your links with us.  Check back in for a roundup post after 23rd!

The VeganMoFo 2016 Survey

Thank you all for participating, commenting, liking, and sharing posts this past November! We love seeing your creativity and we’re so glad to see the vegan community grow stronger as well as larger.

We want to keep growing and improving VeganMoFo, too – and we need your input to do it! Please take a few moments to fill out this 10 question survey and let us know what you think about things we’re doing well, things we could do better, and new features you’d like to see added. You can also place your vote for which month VeganMoFo 2017 should be!

We’d like feedback from anyone and everyone! If you didn’t participate in VeganMoFo but follow us on social media, if you officially or unofficially participated, or something else. It’s all good! We are interested in any and all ideas and perspectives.

As a thank you, we will randomly select one respondent to win a cookbook of your choice. This prize is open internationally. If you are under 18, we’ll need your parents permission to mail you the prize. You can choose any in-print vegan cookbook, not just the ones pictured here.

The survey is open from now until 6pm EST on Sunday, December 18th. A winner, as well as the month for VeganMoFo 2017, will be announced on January, 1st 2017.

Thank you again for making VeganMoFo such a special and awesome part of the vegan community!

Final Week Roundup 2016

It’s December now, and VeganMoFo is over for another year! We really hope you’ve enjoyed this month and have both created and discovered lots of wonderful vegan food. It’s been great seeing people from all over the world post about veganism and vegan food all month long, and hopefully this month has inspired you to keep up the vegan eating!

For this final round up, I’ll include a mixture of posts that followed the daily prompts, and posts that didn’t. The prompts and weekly themes have proved an excellent way to keep things interesting and see how different people interpret them, but it’s also been fascinating to see others create their own themes and post food outside of the prompts! I’ll also include lots of posts, because it’s been very hard to choose and I’d like to showcase as much as possible!

Finally, we’d like to say thank you to everyone who participated this year – it’s been wonderful to get to know you all. This isn’t the last you’ll hear of us though – we’ve got some great plans in the works for VeganMoFo, so stay tuned and stay vegan!

Day 28: Holiday Bake Day! What are you planning on baking over the winter holidays? Do you make cake, or cookies? Or something savoury?

My Darling Vegan

roundup1

 

Mm, don’t these pretzel tarts look amazing? Salted sweet treats are all the rage at the moment, and mixing crispy, salty pretzels with sweet creamy chocolate ganache sounds heavenly!

Elephantastic Vegan

roundup2

 

Ok, so how adorable are these elephant shaped gingerbread cookies from Elephantastic Vegan? And they match the blog name too! These cookies are made without molasses, which is great if you don’t like using it or find it hard to get hold of.

SororiTea Sisters

roundup3

 

Jennifer over at SororiTea Sisters (what a great name!) has been blogging a month of vegan tea! For holiday baking day, she posted this “Chocolate Marshmallow Spicier Chai”, which comes with vegan white chocolate chips and vegan marshmallows – definitely sounds like something you’d bake!

Vegan Dollhouse

roundup4

 

Vegan Dollhouse baked this absolutely adorable Grasshopper Cake. The little kitty chocolates on the top are handmade – and flavoured with mint extract. This is definitely a very impressive holiday bake.

@pepajobo

roundup5

Rather than bake cookies or cake, Jobo baked lasagne! And Thanksgiving lasagne at that – with mushroom gravy, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey spiced yuba, kale, and all topped with stuffing. Uhm, who is hungry right now? I know I am.

Day 29: Holiday Test Run – It’s always good to practice – show off your hits and misses.

@veggiessavetheday

roundup6

 

Amy from Veggies Save the Day (I’ve come across some great blog names this month!) plans to make this Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta for Christmas. I’m never going to say no to pasta and this looks so creamy and tomatoey it’ll be just perfect for a special meal.

@curupita

roundup7

 

Curupita on instagram tested out this pecan pie from Whole Foods, which will form part of their family Christmas. How great is it that you can buy pies as delicious as this from shops these days?

@vegannotjustgreens

roundup8

NotJustGreens has been traveling for part of MoFo and came across a gelato shop with some wonderful vegan options – including this very seasonal candy cane gelato. Also pictured are peppermint mocha, lavender hibiscus, and coconut ginger. Don’t those flavours sound amazing?

@garrickstegner

roundup9

Garrick has been posting some very innovative, delicious looking meals this VeganMoFo and this looks to be no exception. Apparently, their Christmas consists of mashed potatoes, gravy, and meatballs, which sounds pretty great to me!

@olivesfordinner

roundup10

Erin posted her lunch, which was yam pancake with garlic bok choy – doesn’t it look so simple and delicious? And such a good looking photo too which is always a bonus!

Day 30: Food Gifts – Do you like to give food as a gift? Or receive? Show/tell us!

84 Acres

roundup11

Sarah posted her recipe for Easy Vegan Eggnog – I’ll leave you with a quote from her: “This creamy vegan eggnog is so thick that it basically requires booze” – yeah, that sounds pretty good to me. Made with aquafaba – the new vegan miracle food – this sounds like a great way to make a Christmassy treat.

@spabettie

roundup12

 

Kristina made this super fluffy and tasty looking cinnamon roll which would be great as a holiday gift. Who would turn down cinnamon rolls?

@sophigramme

roundup13

 

Sophie shares a gift that she loved receiving. These Québécoise strawberries were brought to her by her in-laws and look very tasty – I wish it was strawberry season again!

Allotment 2 Kitchen

roundup14

 

Shaheen made a wonderful post cataloging many jams and chutneys she has made over the years as holiday gifts. Pictured is Rose Petal and Rhubarb Butter which sounds – and looks – quite beautiful.

@cookiesnstyle

roundup15

 

Cookies&Style made this lovely oatmeal with gingerbread which looks adorably festive and warming. The spices of the holiday season are one of the best parts!

Herbivore’s Heaven

roundup16

Finally, our own Jenny managed to sneak one final post into VeganMoFo today (we’ll allow it!). She posts a monthly “Cookbook of the Month” and this month she used VeganMoFo as her own cookbook! Featuring recipes from MoFo’ers across the board her post shows just some of the amazing recipes which have come out of this month. If you’ve found any recipes you enjoy, or food which inspired you this VeganMoFo I encourage you to follow her example – let the author of the post know how it turned out and how you liked it, as it’s great to get feedback on your food, and it means you can keep in touch and find more great recipes!

Fourth Week Round Up 2016

This week we have been as thankful as ever for this wonderful vegan community:  thank you all for continuing to spread the vegan word and giving us serious food envy at every opportunity. This is the fourth, but not final, round up:  we’ve got three days of Holiday themed posts still to go, so keep on posting, reading and commenting!

Week four was all about Memories and Traditions, and you dedicated MoFo’ers came through with an exciting array of dishes, and wonderful stories connected to them.  Have a look at some of our favourites from this week, and remember to check out what the other members of our community have been up to.

Day 21:  What’s your favourite food memory?

Brand New Vegan

Anyone who enjoyed (or even just tolerated) devilled eggs in their childhood will be delighted by this vegan update on the classic.  Is anyone else really keen to try potato hummus too?

ru-w4-1

Neat & Nutritious

Stephanie recreates the simplicity and comfort of family meals with this “tuna” noodle casserole.  Doesn’t it look good?

ru-w4-2

L’éphémère quotidienneté des repas

I wish these chocolate donuts were part of my childhood.  And my adult life.  Wow!

ru-w4-11

Day 22:  Silly food – what are some silly food memories/traditions that you have?

Vegful Life

Sausage cheese balls just sound silly and fun, don’t they?  Well, they also look delicious!

ru-w4-8

Lisa’s Project Vegan

Lisa’s 4 year old son once decided he wanted to make turkey cookies for their neighbours to eat at Thanksgiving, rather than an actual turkey.  A great sentiment, and a really cute little biscuit!

ru-w4-5

@odilejp

For her silly memory, Odile recreated the grilled cheese sandwiches her dad used to make for her and drown in maple syrup.  Can she convince you to try this crazy combination?

ru-w4-6

Day 23:  Autumn/Fall traditions (or Spring if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere)

Tea & Sympatico

How do you like them apples?  Caroline teaches us how to roast them to perfection to make the most of the autumnal produce.  She’s been blogging about breakfast, so if you’re looking for inspiration, head her way.

ru-w4-7

Walks, Talks & Eats

Autumnal dishes aren’t all about the fruit and veg for Emma.  Maybe it’s a British thing, but there’s definitely something special about cheese and onions pasties in the cold weather!

ru-w4-10

@rosamiex

When you check out Rosie’s Instagram feed, you will love her crockery as much as her food!  She’s giving good old Brussels sprouts a chance to shine in this autumnal dish.

ru-w4-12

Day 24:  Thanksgiving!

@rubbercowgirl

Getting the day started in style with these cinnamon rolls for breakast.

ru-w4-14

@mrs.spaetzle

A colourful and cruelty-free plate from Mrs S!

ru-w4-9

@diannewenz

We’re extremely thankful for Dianne’s Instagram feed, and jealous of her lucky family and friends.  This is only about half of what she prepared for their feast!  PS. Check out her Thanksgiving cheese platter too.

ru-w4-13

Day 25:  Vegan memories – what was your first, or most memorable, vegan meal?

@zuckerbaby.1

Zuckerbaby’s mac’n’cheese obsession started in her early vegan days.  She’s now progressed to this version consisting of caramelised onions, mushrooms and smoked paprika breadcrumbs.

ru-w4-16

@emmholmes

Yep, nanaimo bars would convince me to stick with this vegan lark too!

ru-w4-15

Green Gourmet Giraffe

Like many of us, Johanna has spent a lifetime eating muesli, from shop-bought packets to hotel breakfast buffets and finally homemade varieties.  Check out her recipe for this banana and maca muesli.

ru-w4-18

Day 26:  Show us your favourite cookbooks!

@kath_v_

Not a bad stack of favourites here from Kath.  Unsurprisingly, there was a lot of love for Isa on display today.

ru-w4-21

@cocoamandyk

All dessert books?  We like your style!

ru-w4-20

Veggie Products Review

And on a different note, the good people at Veggie Product Reviews have a sneak peek at a new Vegg product.  It’s breakfasty, it’s microwaveable and it gets an A grade from them!

ru-w4-19

Day 27:  Changed opinion – what is a food you used to hate, but now don’t?

@chunkyonchia

Looking at this dish it’s hard to believe that anyone could ever have hated tofu.  Just look at it!

ru-w4-22

@aufziehvoefelchen

Cauliflower was a popular choice today.  Julia is gradually coming round to it, especially when it’s roasted and served with this tasty miso-tahini sauce!

ru-w4-24

@bigtentvegan

Finishing on a slightly different note, here’s something that nobody in the world has ever hated:  three desserts on one plate!  Yum!

ru-w4-25

Week Three Round Up 2016

 @HappyLittleLunch

Week three was all about ROYGBIV, and boy did you get creative!

 

Monday, November 14th: Monochrome

@pepajobo
If you’re going to go monochrome, purple is a lovely way to do it!

@clare.burgess
And this all green sandwich has such a serene (and most certainly beautiful) quality, doesn’t it?

@myzoetropeeats
This Raspberry Chia Jam is so lovely I want it as a paint color. (And also in my mouth! The jam. Not the paint.)

 

Tuesday, November 15th: Multicolor

@danielle.marie.atkins
I will go to any cookout where there are rainbow veggie kebabs. Invite me, I will show up. Let’s make this happen.

theveganfoodnerd
Pizza is always an excellent opportunity to get in all the colors you can!

@sophigramme
It may not have ALL the colors, but I love the care and style in presentation of this delicious Broccoli “Cheddar” Soup!

 

Wednesday, November 16th: Complementary Colors 

@veggiessavetheday
There is so much going on here! The beautiful contrast of red on green – and there must be a lot of interesting flavor and textural contrast too.

Plant Based Living
The orange and green in this looks so bright and inviting. And this vegan vegetable scampi sounds absolutely delicious!

@lisarturner
These homemade vegan gumdrops look like such a special treat. And those colors!

 

Thursday, November 17th: A Rare Color

My Apologies for the Novel
Maybe we’d all be happier if we had cheery yellow dinners like this more often!

@whoawren
Lauren didn’t identify any of the colors here as rare, but savory waffles certainly are… by the looks of this they shouldn’t be.

@degroenekeuken
Who cares what color it is, these mushroom and caramelized onion burgers look ah-MAZE-ing!

 

Friday, November 18th: Greyscale

Deer Run B&B
How amazing do these black and white aquafaba meringues look!? I am blown away!

@dauliflower
Danielle has done an excellent job of highlighting the universal appeal that is a vegan donut.

justbloggs
We would be remiss not to enjoy some lovely, and naturally B&W sushi!sushi-bw1

 

Saturday, November 19th: Goth Day

@veganistamama
I love the commitment to goth in these tamales: black beans, blue cornmeal, and blueberry mole.

@rubbercowgirl
This purple and blue curry is seriously moody and darkly beautiful.

@nicolearciello
I feel like there is something inherently goth about coffee, and these Coffee Chip Cookies fill the depths of my dark, cold, soul with a tiny flame of happiness. Or something. Whatever.

 

Sunday, November 20th: It’s Easy Being Green

@emmholmess
Green + smoothie bowl? It was meant to be. Em does an amazing job with this one!

Chunky on Chia
Raw Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Cake? Uh, YES.IMG_20160310_093954

@tessalita
Kale chips! Because, vegan. (Also because delicious.)

Now we’re getting all ready for the holidays in Week 4! Food memories and traditions are on deck!
