First of all, apologies for getting my Vegan MoFo Re-Cap up a day late. I meant to publish a post on Saturday and Sunday, but I was kind of distracted this weekend! Normal service resumes today. As part of Vegan MoFo, I’m posting a weekly re-cap of my posts, partly to have everything in one place for ease of access, and partly to allow me to reflect a bit more on the last week.
The month kicked off with a quick catch-up post. I didn’t blog while I was in the middle of my dissertation, and I’m excited to start up again. Hopefully, Vegan MoFo will help me kickstart Moving Scouse into gear again!
On Monday, I posted a collection of my five favourite treat recipes that I’ve created for the blog over the years. Cupcakes, doughballs, dampfnudeln… they’re all there, and they’re all delicious! I have so many blog skills I want to develop over the next years and recipe creation is one of them. It’s not one of my strong points at the moment, but I hope I’ll get better!
On Tuesday, I wrote about my five favourite vegan protein sources. The image is a bit of a giveaway – my favourite is Perfect Fit, but there are so many more affordable alternatives out there, including lots of whole foods options! I’ve been lifting a lot of heavier weights recently, and I find that adequate amounts of protein help me in my recovery. When I don’t have enough, I’m much more sore after a good workout!
Wednesday was all about accessible veganism. I talked about how much easier it has become to go and stay vegan in 2017. This is true from an availability perspective – we have so many options we can just buy from a shop, including the all-new vegan Ben & Jerry’s options! But we’ve also seen a real change in perspective. Interest in plant-based lifestyles is at an all-time high, and more and more people harbouring curiosity rather than disdain towards vegans.
Thursday’s post went a bit beyond the Vegan MoFo scope, focussing on photo editing. I’m really interested in improving the images on Moving Scouse, and I’ve started giving my images a good edit. I’ve been using the A Color Story app, which is a bit like having photoshop on your phone. At the moment, I take my photos on my iPhone 6. The quality is decent and they’re easy to edit and upload. However, I’m debating whether a low-budget DSLR might be the next step. What’s everyone’s experience with this?
I’m looking forward to the next week of Vegan MoFo!
