Vegan MoFo 2017 | Week 1 Re-Cap

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.

Vegan Month of Food 2017

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!

Pumpkin Spice Dampfnudel

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!

5 Favourite Vegan Protein Sources

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!

Vegan Ben & Jerry's

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.

A Color Story - Before & After

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!
