VeganMoFo 2014: But where do you get your protein?! (And calcium, and iron, and…)

VeganMoFo 2014: But where do you get your protein? ...and iron,<a href=

Much to my surprise and chagrin, it’s September already. August passed in a blur of, mostly, mucus. Mine (thanks, extremely long-lasting sinus/ear/whatever infection!) and our new doggy’s.

This is Luna. We adopted her just a few weeks ago. I fell in love with her earnest, intense stare. She was found as a stray and came home with a severe case of kennel cough. Despite her medication regimen, she’s still coughing and hacking up mucus on a daily basis. She was also extremely emaciated, but she’s put on weight and is definitely filling out. S and I are learning her quirks and personality, but I’m already in love. I can’t wait to see how her relationship with Moria develops.

Anyway, that’s been my August. But now it’s September, and September is the Vegan Month of Food (that’s VeganMoFo to you!). This is my sixth (!) year participating, but I have to confess that I very nearly missed the sign-up. Like I said… August was a blur. I scurried to sign up, and then my theme came to me a flash of shower-inspired creativity. This month, I’ll be focusing on recipes that are high in all those nutrients that everyone thinks vegans must lack. I’m talkin’ calcium, iron, and—of course—protein. 

So stay tuned for recipes, reviews, and enough protein to get you RIPPED. (JK, vegans are all puny weaklings, amirite?!) But seriously. Strap in and enjoy the month of food!
