Howdy beloved readers! It’s Vedged Out’s One Year Blogiversary today and I’m taking you on a tour through the highlights and lowlights of the year:
It’s been an amazing year! Some highlights included Forks Over Knives featuring my health transformation testimonial and ChooseVeg.com featuring me on their health page.
Then we’ve had two very. awesome. Virtual Vegan Potlucks.
Spooky Macadamia Nut Brie En Croute
um, I’m still dreaming about that one
Mini Jackfruit and Kimchi BLT Slider Bites
Two words. Jackfruit. Bacon.
The top viewed post on my site this year:Individual Vegan Margherita Pizzas with Homemade Fresh Moxarella
people go crazy when homemade vegan cheese is tastier, easier, healthier and cheaper than running to your local Whole Foods for another bag of Daiya.
The least viewed post on my site this year:Baked Maple Dijon Baby Lima Beans.
Yeah, can’t blame my readers, doesn’t look like the most appetizing dish, does it? I swear they were good!
The cookie bars that took over Pinterest by storm:Healthied Up Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
who doesn’t love an easy to put together ooey gooey dessert?
This ALL VEGAN Thanksgiving Menu shared with beloved friends and family, including Annie at An Unrefined Vegan
Then we had that low point, with that injury (currently still injured, I’ll have another healing series coming up soon).Goodbye Running, I still miss you like crazy.
But when one door closes another one opens! And now I’ve also got some awesome news, I’ve signed a book contract with Vegan Heritage Press! I couldn’t be more proud to be working with such an amazing and compassionate publishing house. You’ll have to wait for all the juicy details, but it’s official. I’m an author!
The Vegan Heritage Press family all ready includes some Vegan Superstars: the amazing and talented raw vegan chef Amber Shea Crawley, prolific vegan cookbook author and goddess Robin Robertson, recipe developer extraordinaire Bryanna Clark Grogan, vegan baking fool Tamasin Noyes, national recipe competition winner Betsy DiJulio and several new faces that I can’t wait to become acquainted with!
Oh, and I’ve all ready been a recipe contributor for Sunwarrior for some time, but now I’m joining their expert ambassador team as well! Yeah, just gotta submit that Bio. They’ve truly got the best vegan vitamins and supplements on the planet. Pure love.
Thanks for all the love and support along the way. Can’t wait to see what this next year brings!
