This year Vegan Month of Food is in September instead of October. As a disclaimer, I am an omnivore that likes to dabble in Vegan cooking.
At first I came up with a great idea for this month, I was going to go Vegan for a month and document my meals and my experience. But then I thought about what was going on in my life.
Oh yeah, I have a 4 month old that relies on me for food. I know there are plenty of mothers out there that are Vegan and breastfeed, but I didn’t want to drastically change my diet unless I was under the care of a physician and could do it correctly. So since I will be my youngest main food source for her first year, I decided that I would do this experiment for Vegan MoFo 2014.
For this month, I have a few ideas for entries with regard to different food items that I haven’t made before. I am also going to review a few readymade vegan food items. Finally, I am going to be making a good amount of smoothies and/or soups (pureed items) for me and my 2 year old. I will be doing this for 2 reasons: 1) my husband got me an EARLY Christmas present in the form of a Vitamix (very excited about this, will arrive in 1-2 weeks) and 2) Emma use to eat any vegetables that I would feed her and now she won’t really touch a vegetable unless it is peas or tomatoes. Granted she LOVES fruit, but my crazy munchkin needs some leafy greens. For some odd reason she will drink my green smoothies 🙂
My main goal this time around is to post more and everything I make. I have a tendency to make stuff and then not post about. The girls keep me busy, so I will be posting/cooking in the middle of the day during naptime.
