Well, darlings, Vegan MoFo is almost here. That's the Vegan Month of Food, in case you thought I was just being lascivious. It's the one month each year (this year, it's October) when vegan bloggers across the globe come out of the woodwork and band together, committed to posting every day (or nearly every day) about food.
Although 2011 marks year #5 for Vegan MoFo, this is actually my first year of official participation. Once it's underway, you'll be able to visit the Vegan MoFo website and browse through the hundreds of participants (like, over 600!), even sorting by geographic location and theme. If you're really into food pr0n, you may want to bookmark the Flickr pool as well.

Theme? Oh yeah. Since a post-a-day is, well, a LOT of posts, lots of Vegan MoFo bloggers like to organize their posts around a theme. Like, the alphabet, or cooking through a whole cookbook, or foods that are green, or what have you.

Now, me, I have a little trouble committing to things like themes. Especially where a whole MONTH of food blogging is concerned. So, I'm taking a slightly different approach to my first Vegan MoFo. For me and The Verdant Life, Vegan MoFo will be a food diary of sorts - in pictures. I pledge to photograph every meal, every snack, every smoothie and create a photo-illustrated answer to the question: What do vegans eats?

So, in a nutshell, here's what I'm committing myself to:
- At least one post every weekday in October
- Photos of all my vegan meals
- Descriptions and other foodie-related details of said meals
- Original recipes too!
Join me on this journey and let's find out what this vegan really eats!
