I’ve spent the last few weeks debating whether or not to participate in VeganMoFo 2019. I’ve signed up many times, but never actually followed through. Once again, I was feeling uninspired and leaning towards not even bothering to try this year.
But then, I saw this!
A friend shared this image in a local moms group I follow. I somehow felt both proud and embarrassed of just how many of these I eat regularly. Overnight oats made with oat milk, acai, and almond butter? Yes please! I’ll probably even have a La Croix on the side.
Man. If I’m being totally honest, that stung a bit. I thought I was an individual. Now here comes some dumb Facebook survey telling me that I’m just like everyone else born in my decade. I can’t lie, that was a bit of a shock.
But you know what was even more shocking? The number of people in our group who had never even heard of things on this list! I mean who hasn’t lusted after…
I contemplated what a sad existence that must be, full of plain boring foods, and suddenly inspiration struck! My fellow millennial moms (and dads! and all you carefree childless millennials too!) need to know what they’re missing out on! I can save them from their gray plates of sadness!
And just like that, my VeganMoFo 2019 theme was born! I hope you enjoy my month long journey through the apparent foods of my generation. As a true millennial, I’m taking on this challenge with the added layer of dietary restrictions; all the food I share will be vegan. I’ll have to get creative with things like bone broth and cloud eggs, but don’t you worry, I’ll share all my results along the way, in true bloggin’ millennial fashion!
One more thing, as a group millennials don’t particularly cook much. It’s an insult to say we don’t know how. We just don’t have time because we’re too busy ruining everything.
With that in mind, a lot of my posts this month will be product reviews and simple semi-homemade recipes à la Sandra Lee. That… uhh… evil doorbell industry won’t ruin itself. I got you my fellow busy millennials!
