Vegan Mofo: Cookies & Scream


Vegan Mofo, known as the Vegan Month of Food to vegan bloggers everywhere, is upon us. And I’m participating for the first time. I’m keeping it short and sweet, as I’ll be training and bussing and staying in questionable lodging with questionable access to wifi throughout Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand this September. And I’m also blogging at Vida Vegan HQ’s blog, where Jess, Michele and I are doing a Month of Memories theme.

Here’s how the weeks’ posts will be broken down, roughly:

  • Monday: Sweet Treats
  • Tuesday: Snacky Treats
  • Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday
  • Thursday: Around The World
  • Friday: It’s 5 o’clock Somewhere

I have so many pictures from the last few months of my travels, I’m excited to share them with you all!

For the first installment, because I’ve been CRAVING vegan ice cream and cookies recently (impossible to find in Vietnam), here is an extraordinarily crave-worthy milkshake from Cookies & Scream in Camden Market, London.


Cookies and Scream in London


Sean, better known as The Fat Gay Vegan, took me here on our London afternoon outing back in June. We met up with the lovely Kip from The Messy Vegetarian Cook and all heavily indulged in some of London’s best vegan gluten-free dessert.


This little beauty is made from vegan and gluten-free vegan ice cream, soy milk, and A WHOLE peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Oh. My. Lanta. So good.

Vegan Mofo 2013: Bites From Abroad


Well. In between zipping through Vietnam on a motorbike and touring the majestic Halong Bay, I’ve decided to participate in Vegan Mofo this year for the very first time. Vegan Mofo is an annual month of food writing for vegan bloggers; it stands for The Vegan Month of Food. Vegan bloggers from around the world participate by writing as much as they can (usually a post a day every weekday) for a month. This year, that month is September. And despite the fact that I’ll be in Vietnam and Thailand with questionable WiFi and limited time to write, I’m gonna do it, y’all.

My theme: bites from abroad. I’ll post food and drink that I’ve sampled from around the world. Stay tuned!


In the meantime, here is what I’ve been eating every single day:


I'm eating all the spring rolls.
