One of my improvement goals is to connect with vegan cooking communities online. A few that caught my eye on Twitter are @sunnysidehanne, @MyVeganMealPlan , @vegancook101 , @cookingvegan to name a few. While browsing through One Green Planet's advice for new vegans, trying to find community I came across The Post Punk Kitchen Forums. This forum appears very active and current, including discussions covering a variety of life experiences as a vegan. Here are some of their food discussions.
Did you know there is an online vegan magazine called Chickpea Magazine. Although, the magazine is a paid subscription, whether print or online, there is a very good blog on their website. It includes topics such as How We Learned to Cook, Foods We Always Have Prepped, How Learning to Cook Changed My Life, etc. Barefoot Vegan is a free online magazine. The May/June 2017 issue is available her. It's 80 pages are chock full of articles, including a food and cooking section (p. 30 - 32).
Doesn't everyone want to peek into someone's cupboard? Of course you do. Come have a look at what is in a vegan's kitchen cupboards.
The hardest part of being vegan they say is meeting others who are vegan. How am I to make vegan friends so that my cooking repertoire can be shared, critiqued and exchanged? In essence, how to meet vegan friends? Well, first you find them online, because it is just a lot easier. :)
I searching further, I thought I would ask Google+ how to find communities. There are so many to choose from when I typed in vegan cooking. The ones of particular interest are Indian Food/Cooking Curries, Madame Scientist Cooks, and Vegan Breakfasts.
Finally, there are some live chats to follow. A couple of interesting ones are Happy Cow, and @VeganChatRoom.
Did you know: that when you see this symbol Ⓥ to the left of someone's name on Twitter it means they are vegan? How cool is that!!
In conclusion, through my research I have found not just one but many various and diverse cooking networks. From forums to magazines to meet-ups to Google+ communities to chat rooms I look forward to connecting with others of similar lifestyles and interest.
Dear Reader: How has your experience meeting others online who share similar interests worked out? What has been your best experience? Funniest?
