Vegan Mofo: Rise & Shine!

It's the first day (or I guess it's night now) of Vegan Mofo 2015! Vegan Mofo stands for "vegan month of food." The month changes a bit from year to year, but this time, it's in September. Vegan bloggers, Instagrammers, tweeters, and other social media users will be attempting to break the internet with daily posts of mouth-watering vegan food porn. And this year, there are themes for every day. Most years, I stick with my five-day-a-week blog schedule during Mofo, but this month, I'm blogging EVERY SINGLE DAY. And I'm going to do my best to follow all the recommended daily themes. So please stop by often!

So let's get started. The first Mofo theme is "Rise & Shine: Tell Us About Your Breakfast." So, without further ado, here's what I ate for breakfast today — Grilled Tex-Mex Tofu Migas from the new issue of VegNews.

The recipe is by The Sexy Vegan Brian Patton. And they're so good! First, you grill up some veggies — tomato, peppers, scallions. I used my indoor grill. And then you scramble those with tofu, and because this is migas, you toss in a some chopped corn tortilla bits. Melt a little vegan cheddar. Scoop into a corn tortilla. Add some avocado, and, if you're me, you add Yellowbird Jalapeno Sauce. I enjoyed these with a side of sweet summer watermelon with pink salt. 

After Vida Vegan Con in Austin back in May, I noticed that most of my blogger friends couldn't stop eating tacos when they got home. So many posts were about tacos! But as much as I love tacos, I needed a break from them for awhile. But I'm back on tacos now, big-time. 

While we're here, can we just talk about how great it is that VegNews is back?! I got my new Food Issue in the mail last week, and it was such an awesome surprise! And now Colleen Holland is running the mag, so you know it's going to be great again. You can find this breakfast taco recipe and more in the new issue!

Sweet breakfast taco!
Cool about Colleen Holland running VegNews. After the whole blow up I didn't know what to think about the mag, there seems to be a wave of vegan magazines coming out which is totally awesome!

I should really start eating healthy and those tacos would be perfect!

I got my VegNews issue too, finally. I'll check out that recipe.

I also can't wait to get my paper copy of Driftwood Magazine. I have the electronic version, but I'm waiting for paper... much more pleasant.
