When friend, former Tacomite and fellow vegan food blogger Cat of The Verdant Life announced that she was starting a vegan food swap, I jumped at the opportunity. Before I started this blog, I read lots of vegan blogs and came across awesome stories of strangers who’d swapped food from around the country and it looked like fun, (to this food nerd). I signed up for her Vegan Food Swap for the month of April and I wasn’t disappointed, as it was both super fun to send and receive a swap box.
She also included some items in awesomely recycled packaging: star anise, cacao nibs, homemade salt-free vegan pho seasoning (!!) and some homemade oatmeal chai cookies, which are delightful! You can find the recipe for them here. Can you guess what I was most excited about?
Yep, the vegan pho seasoning! I thought it was so thoughtful that Aimee checked out my blog beforehand and saw that I was a mega-pho freak and included this. I’ve always wanted to make homemade pho but never have, and now I have the tools to do it right!
Cat started this Vegan Food Swap with the intention of it becoming a monthly event. If you’d like to participate in May, sign up here soon! Also, check out all of the other reveals to see what everyone else swapped.
PS: The second annual Tacoma Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale is happening this Sunday! Hope to see you there for loads of delicious vegan goodies and lots of community.
