Vegan Mofo 2012 – It Begins!

It’s October, so that means a few things. Autumn is slowly rolling through the country, thanksgiving will be happening this month (in Canada), Halloween is on it’s way…. and it’s time for Vegan Month of Food (aka Vegan MoFo).

Vegan MoFo 2012

What is Vegan MoFo?

Read all about it on the Vegan Month of Food FAQ

What am I doing for Vegan MoFo?

I don’t really have a theme, but I do have some challenges for myself:

  • Read and comment on at least 10 new blogs a day.
  • Find recipes via blogs (or zines) and try them out (and talk about them) during the course of Vegan MoFo
  • Keep posting about great vegan food everyday.
  • Always link to one or more vegan MoFo’ers in every post.
  • I would like to do at least one video blog post. Be it demonstration of how to make some of the breads I’ve been working on lately, or just a vegan talk about something going on in Toronto.

Who am I?

I live and work in Toronto, I live with my fiance (JC) and our cat Emmie. I’m technically inclined and a food enthusiast.  I’m interested in food from a variety of perspectives, beyond making it, baking it, or eating it. The equal accessibility of good healthy food and food distribution, scarcity issues, acknowledgement of the different experiences we’ve had with food, through the lens of ethical veganism, and ultimately, food that is beautiful and delicious.

When I’m not thinking about food, sleeping, or working, I’m playing World of Warcraft, or weightlifting.

Why do I love Vegan MoFo?

I LOVE connecting with people I might not have had the chance to “meet” in the real world, in the online space. It’s a great opportunity to see recipes and different cities in a different light, and learn more about the different vegan bloggers that are all over the world.

      Thanks Janet. That’s a great goal too! There are so many of us (in toronto), but then there are sooo many more to discover!!! 😀

    Yes! Good for you! My only goal is to get my posts up before midnight. We’re off to Disneyland mid-month, so I project that the most I’ll be serving up that week is bad cell phone photos of the Magic Kingdom’s vegan offerings!

    I’m going to copy you! I love your term “ethical veganism” and I love the idea of setting international networking as a goal.

    I’m American, but had the privilege of visiting Toronto a few years ago and had a wonderful time. I walked all over downtown, and took the ferry to see the haunted lighthouse on that little island. My most fun memento was a tape of Susan Aglukark. I hate to say that my countrymen are generally ignorant of how lucky we are to have Canada as a neighbor.

      We are pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I feel happy that I’m just close enough to visit the USA. 🙂
