Happy October 1st. I’m checking in quickly with four very special announcements:
1) It’s VeganMofo!
For those of you who haven’t participated in this fun tradition before, October is this year’s month of vegan food. This means that, over the course of the month, a number of vegan (or simply vegan-friendly) bloggers will be writing as much as humanely possible about vegan eats. It’s not a scary commitment or major time drain; the idea is merely to show some love for vegan cooking and the vegan lifestyle in print. And if you already do this, the idea is for you to write a little bit more, or a little bit better, or with a little bit more pizazz this month.
I invite all my veg-friendly readers to participate! For info on signing up, click here.

And for bonus credit, I am re-instituting Raw Wednesdays for the month of October! If you’re a new reader and didn’t participate last time, you can read about the Raw Wednesday Challenge here. Simply whip up one raw meal each Wednesday, and feel free to chat about it in my comments section (I’ll always be posting on Wednesdays to foster a conversation). You can also email me jpegs of raw meals, which I’ll post on Wednesdays. I hope you all participate in both challenges!
3) A dear coworker of mine is quitting smoking. I refuse to make him blush by name, but he is a pretty special and courageous dude, and I want all of you — especially those who chimed in on my quitiversary post — to join me in cheering him on.
4) The lucky winner of Clean Plates NYC is #27 — Amy! Amy please email me at Gena@choosingraw.com with your contact info, so that I can get you the book.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a fantastic vegan and raw recipe for autumn. Take care!
