Welcome to the VegCookbook Club! I’m so happy you’re here and am excited to cook with you. My name is Britt Bravo. I’m a blogger, podcaster, and blog coach for artists, writers, entrepreneurs and do-gooders. I’m also a big vision consultant who loves to help people find and express their calling.
I’ve been a vegetarian, a vegan, a macrobiotic, and a meat eater. Now I think of myself as 75% vegan, 20% vegetarian, and 5% PMS pepperoni pizza. Over the past couple years, I’ve reduced the amount of animal products I eat because I’m deeply disturbed by how industrial farming treats animals. Plus, ever since our cat, Dora, came to live with us, it has become more and more difficult to feel comfortable killing other animals.
I looooove to try new recipes from vegetarian and vegan cookbooks, and I’m hoping you do too. I created the VegCookbook Club for anyone who would like to eat less meat and animal products.
You can join for a variety of reasons:
• Animal rights
• For a creative cooking challenge
• To be part of a cooking community
• To have fun!
Check out the ♥love notes♥ from VegCookbook Club members, the VegNews article we were featured in, 3 Ways to Share Your Love of Veg Food, and my interview with Kimberly Wilson on the Tranquility du Jour podcast.
How to participate in the VegCookbookClub
• Each month, I select a vegetarian, or vegan cookbook for us to cook from together (feel free to send me suggestions!).
• Once a week, I post about recipes that I’ve tried from the cookbook, and share links to your blog posts, tweets and photos of the recipes you tried.
• You can share your experience VegCooking by:
- Writing about the recipes you tried in the comments of this blog. (What did you like? What didn’t you like? What changes did you make?).
- Asking a question in the comments of this blog (e.g. What the heck is nutritional yeast?).
- Sharing a link to a post from your own blog about the recipes you made this week in the comments of this blog.
- Posting photos of what you made on Instagram with the hashtag #vegcookbookclub
- Posting photos of what you made in the VegCookbook Flickr group.
- Tweeting about what you cooked with the hashtag #vegcookbookclub
I also try to pin all of our photos on Pinterest.
My hope is that the VegCookBook Club will:
• Be a fun and creative community
• Provide inspiration, support and motivation for us to eat less animal products
• Inspire us to cook more often for ourselves, our families, friends and communities
