VeganMoFo 28: UK Vegan 100

No MoFo post yesterday! But maybe I’ll try and squeeze in an extra post before the end of the month to make up for it. We’ll see. This week has been kind of crazy so far – my sleep rhythm seems to be messed up, or maybe I have just been going to bed too late, or maybe I just have to get used to my new university timetable, but I’ve been super sleepy and I slept through my alarm clock twice this week! So weird.

Anyway, I know I already did the Vegan 100 thing before, but I just saw this new list posted on Cooking the Vegan Books and I like it so much that I’m going to post it too. It’s a list of vegan UK foods! The previous list contained a couple of items that are available only in the US, and one of the reasons I haven’t tried them. Of course I don’t live in the UK either, so the problem remains, but at least it’s closer to the Netherlands? This list also made me very enthusiastic about travelling to the UK and trying all of these foods for myself.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!
