I am excited to announce that this week I launched my brand new website, FindingVegan.com.
The Vision: We all love browsing food photos, recipes, products and blogs. Wouldn't it be awesome if there was an easy-to-browse website where every 'find' was vegan? Now there is..
Finding Vegan: All things vegan. Found.
What is it? Finding Vegan is a user-submitted, photo-based site where you are invited to share cool, yummy, fun, inspiring "vegan finds" - that includes recipes, books, products and more!
So far, the feedback on FV has been extraordinary! Check out some of the yummy already-posted submissions in the photo above. (Get these recipe links later in this post).
Find out more and how you can get involved!...
A Very Wide Vegan World. As you may recall, I recently posted my list of Best Vegan Blogs. Well with 330+ listed and growing - it can be tricky to keep up with all the inspiring vegan finds online. FV is there to help you stay in the know of all the latest and greatest vegan recipes, products, news and more.
Spread The Word! I hope you will pass on the news about Finding Vegan to your vegan-curious contacts. And yes, the goal of FV is to allow everyone to explore vegan finds and satisfy their curiosity.
Share and find on Finding Vegan.

Thank you to all who have submitted so far!
