My First Vegan Food Swap

 This was my first month participating in the vegan food swap organized by The Verdant Life.  I received my box from Amie at Whole Soul Vegan.  A fellow Floridian, she sent me a great box of goodies.  And most of it is snacks, perfect to bring with me to my prison cell of a graduate assistant office.  There's seaweed snacks (which I've been dying to try), granola, soup, tea, couscous, an oatmeal raisin cookies, almond butter, and ginger chews.  I can't wait to dig in.  Thanks Amie!


I'm mailing my box out to my lucky recipient today.  I did a Florida themed box with all the ingredients plus the recipe for my key lime pie.  She lives in Rhode Island so I think it will be a nice reminder of summer during the cold winter months.  I hope she enjoys her box as much as I've enjoyed mine.

October was the last month for the vegan food swap this year but you can still sign up for when it starts again in 2013.

  1. Hope you enjoy it. I am sad it was the last swap for the year. I look forward to shopping for the swap each month almost as much as opening the box of goodies to see what I've been sent.

    1. I'm sure I will! I'm basically just going to bring that box to my graduate assistant office. It's the perfect combo of lunch, snacks, and tea. Thanks again!

    1. I highly recommend it! It's a lot of fun and a great way to met new vegans around the country. Plus now you have plenty of time to brain storm what you want to send.
