For many there is still a lot of mystery behind what vegans eat. I have been offered fish more than once yet asked, “can vegans eat peanut butter?” just as many times.  There actually isn’t much secret behind what we eat, and preparing food is really quite easy – you just leave out the animals. 

I’m using Vegan MoFo to take an A-Z trip through my pantry to bring you 26 easy recipes to show you that anyone can cook vegan. Eating vegan, well, it’s as easy as ABC.


What I won’t be doing next month:

1. Taking pictures of every meal before I eat.
2. Cooking dinner at 3 in the afternoon because that’s when the light is best
3. Making meal plans based on the letters of the alphabet. 
4. Scheduling social media posts or editing photos when I should be sleeping. 


What I will be doing next month:

1. Making (or finding) Halloween costumes for my two adorable children.  
2. Decorating the house with gourds and pinecones while listening to the RHPS soundtrack
3. Drinking warm apple cider and riding on hay-filled tractors
4. Splashing in rain puddles
5. Carving Eden’s 1st Jack-O-Lantern
6. Eating lots of soup
