VeganMofo Day 14: Meet other vegan bloggers

I decided last week that Saturday topics for Vegan Mofo, a month of vegan food blog posts, are for introducing you to other vegan bloggers. Since I am not a food blogger, most of my posts for Vegan Mofo will not be recipes, rather experiences I have with vegan food and sharing people, places and things that have brought me and continue to bring me amazing vegan food.

Veganism is well represented by bloggers and I think because of vegan bloggers veganism is so much more accessible.

Ever since day one of The Gay Vegans I have tried to promote other vegan blogs, whether the blogs are mainly about food, activism or nutrition. Need a dinner recipe, check out a vegan blog. Worried about B12, there's a vegan blog for that too!

At Vida Vegan Con I fell in love with Mauro and Lydia, two of the fours bloggers for From A to Vegan blog: They are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet and their blog rocks it with all types of information. I have become a regular visitor to their blog and every time I spend some time there I fell like I learn so much (or want to go somewhere!). From travel reviews, tor restaurant and product reviews to just basic information on veganism, they certainly cover it all.Mauro and Lydia recently went to the huge Vegetarian Food Festival in Toronto and I can't wait to hear all about it.

Speaking of the sweetest people and people that I simply love and adore, another blog I frequent is from my friend Katie Medlock, Vegan Noms: Katie covers recipes for delish vegan desserts, smoothies, main dishes and more, and sometimes she connects the recipe with a TV show, which I think is pretty cool. Under her "recipes" tab Katie has all of the recipes categorized so you can easily find a breakfast dish, pasta dish or dessert. How easy! Need a recipe for a great vegan dish for a party you're headed to, check out Vegan Noms. You will love Katie.

I sense a theme here of people that I totally love so Ryan Patey is a perfect fit here. I am so grateful that I know Ryan and that I get to call him friend. Ryan's blog is also home to his online vegan magazine, T.O.F.U.: To me Ryan is a vegan superstar and his blog and magazine bring a huge variety of topics to our vegan culture, from recipes to articles about vegan communities to articles about body issues amongst us. I have been buying T.O.F.U. magazine for a couple of years and have loved each issue. Check out Ryan's blog and you'll be the first to know when the next edition comes out.

I hope you take time to check out these blogs and get as much out of them as I do!

Thanks for reading!
