MoFo Blog. As I said in my previous post, I am moving away from doing nonstop decadence this year and I'm super excited about it.
For my first post I wanted to do the vegan palate challenge, but that will have to wait until tomorrow. This day has been beyond stressed, so I decided to start slow and give a few tips on how I kept my mofo experience last year stress free.
1. Expect the Unexpected-Let's face it: life happens. If a recipe fails or you run out of time to make something new, blog about it. Talk about how you added baking powder instead of soda. We'll all share a laugh. Tell a story about your favorite food experience or the first time you cooked for yourself. This month isn't solely about recipes and food porn. Some of the true gems are the stories.
2.Themes Aren't Everything-Sometimes it's easier to just wing it. The only reason I have every single day planned out is because I'm really neurotic and obsessed with lists. You can ask my mom...she'll tell you. Besides, I'm sure you really have a theme and don't even realize it.
3.Take a Break-My mind went to mush towards the end of the month last year. It's okay to not sit at your computer for 5 hours reading blogs. Get up and walk around after an hour or so. Too much vegan awesomeness has been known to harm. True story.
4.Plan Ahead-Even if you have no plan, spending five minutes to think about tomorrow's post really makes things easier. That way you can do totally awesome things like read blogs for 5 hours!
5.Don't Over Do It-Remember there is no award for the person who veganizes the most omni monstrosities. Try to switch up the types of food that you make so that you won't feel all sickly at the end of the month.
6.Have Fun-Seriously. Have fun! Think of it as a bunch of friends blogging about food. It shouldn't be work. I mean it's work, but it's kinda awesome.
Okay. I totally plan for a legitimate post tomorrow. It will be like a double post! Oh, and another new thing I'm doing this year is giving a quick rundown of what to expect for the week. It will be on every Sunday post from now on. But for now...
Coming up this week: the ultimate vegan palate challenge, apple mojitos, and a little Epicurious fun!
