    Author | Veronica Heuzenroeder 

    We promised you more scrumptious blogs for your Meat Free Monday so without further ado we give you: our favourite international food bloggers

    Advice from a professional should not be overlooked when it comes to our bodies. Sarah Britton is a one such Torontonian professional who is ready and willing to share her comprehensive knowledge and holistic philosophy. Having studied at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto, Sarah has dedicated her life to spreading the benefits of holistic eating across the world (she currently works as a chef in Denmark). She eschews labels, saying that she is simply someone ‘who eats’; and what wonderful things she serves up on a plate! If you want a Meat Free Monday breakfast, check out her ‘Veggie and Egg Tower of Power’ for a great start to the day, and end it with one of her many great meat-less dishes. One of our favourites is her Quinoa sushi recipe.

    Oh She Glows | Canada

    Sticking with our North-American cousins, we get lots of delicious vegany ideas from the plucky and courageous Angela Liddon. She is veritably in love with healthy, fresh food and fuelling the body through nutritious cuisine that doesn’t skimp on taste. In addition to great recipes, she also has a comprehensive guide to building a vegan pantry full of ingredients that make life easy and cooking enjoyable, and an account of her fitness regime. There is certainly no shortage of recipes though; having started her site 5 years ago you can immerse yourself in hundreds of meat-free ideas!

    An offshoot of the well-known blog Apartment Therapy, this site is full of great ideas that revolve around organising the kitchen and creating a peaceful place to cook in, as well as great things to make. You can see how to keep the pantry organised and utilise your freezer to its best ability, as well as make yummy things to put inside it. You’ll find reviews of kitchen tools and cookbooks, helping you to build an effective place to make your meals. You can enjoy a meat-free Monday meal as simple as Roasted Garlic – follow the easy directs and spread on fresh bread with toppings like avocado and tomatoes.

    Oh My Veggies | USA

    Who doesn’t love a good sandwich? Comprehensive and easy to make, if you’re having a Meat Free Monday where you want things easy, this is the blog for you. Kiersten of Oh My Veggies openly professes her love for the hand-friendly meal option, and has over 50 recipes for you to try. Not that she only eats sandwiches of course. She will abstain from sandwich eating for other equally simple and delectable vego options; quinoa, tofu and kale abound, such as you’d expect from a venerable veggie blog.

    Big Girls Small Kitchen | USA

    Navigation of the kitchen area can be a bit challenging for those in their twenties. They may have moved into their first home outside of the family unit, with a small kitchen and even smaller repertoire of meals in mind. Big Girls Small Kitchen was started by two such ladies, Phoebe Lapine and Cara Eisenpress, who focus on accessibility not just for the young and inexperienced but anyone with kitchen challenges. If biking to a fall picnic and eating ‘brown bag’ lunches sounds like it’s for you, click right along.

    Think we’ve missed something? We love hearing about blogs which share the meat-free love. Let us know your favourites by getting in touch via Facebook.
