Blogger Awards

I’m honoured to have been chosen by Aine of PeaSoupEats to receive the Stylish Blogger Award, and by Lisa of Vegan Culinary Crusade to receive the One Lovely Blog Award. I’ve seen these little awards floating around the blogosphere and I’m quite flattered that they were passed on to me. Since starting my blog a mere seven months ago, I’ve honestly become a happier person because it has provided me a creative outlet to improve my baking and photography skills, and an opportunity to develop some amazing friendships and connect with compassionate vegans within the blogger community. So, thank you!

I’d like to nominate 10 more fantastic bloggers for these awards. Without further ado, the Stylish Blogger Award goes to:

Manifest: Vegan
Allyson’s vegan and gluten-free food blog is quite a feast for the eyes, with bright colours and gorgeous photography that complement her unique recipe creations beautifully. She’s determined to show the world the unlimited possibilities of compassionate cuisine, and I always feel inspired after seeing what she can do with potato starch and xanthan gum.

Have Cake, Will Travel
Celine’s posts never fail to put a smile on my face. She has a fun, fresh style all her own and professional photographs that are equally fantastic. As the author of several cookbooks, including 500 Vegan Recipes, The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions and the upcoming Hearty Vegan, she’d get my vote for the next Vegan Idol (if there was one).

Vegan Culinary Crusade

I’m a long-time fan of Lisa’s blog. She delivers a healthy dose of inspiration and enthusiasm in every one of her posts. She’s a proponent of simple, whole-foods-based nourishment, and her ongoing commitment to vegan activism and a healthy lifestyle encourages me to be a better person, both to myself and to the world.

MadCap Cupcake

Marika is a writer, photographer and stylist who uses her blog to chronicle her adventures in vegan baking, much like moi. Her recent commitment to document her Holiday Cookie Project for Vegan MoFo, in which she tried and tested over two dozen cookies à la Julie & Julia, was awesome.

Baking is Hot

Patty and Crispin inspire bakers everywhere with their database of beautiful baking photos and links to recipes from around the world. They’re a design duo who live in the tropics, where they bake in the mornings and design iPhone apps and websites in the afternoons. As far as I’m concerned, Baking is Hot is one of their best creations.

The One Lovely Blog Award goes to:

Sketch-free Vegan Eating

I just recently discovered the blog of twin sisters Jennifer and Jaclyn. It highlights “vegan, gluten-free, mostly allergen-free and sometimes raw recipes without the use of ‘processed vegan foods,'” which many people are looking for these days. The girls’ creativity in the kitchen proves how you can turn simple and healthy ingredients into something fantastic.

The Blissful Chef
This is the blog of Christy Morgan, a.k.a. the Blissful Chef, a vegan macrobiotic chef to eco-conscious celebrities in Los Angeles. Her inspiring blog and website is a great resource for diet and lifestyle changes. I love her enthusiasm and excitement for all things healthy, vegan and green, and her mission to help others make the connection between mind, body and spirit.

Sweetly Raw
Heather Pace is a raw dessert diva. Her blog encourages me to break out of my comfort zone when it comes to raw foods and raw desserts. She’s the creator of raw moon pies, which are out of this world. Although her dietary choices have changed somewhat, I still go back to her archives regularly when I’m in need of some inspiration.

Choosing Raw
I recently became a dedicated fan of Gena’s blog after reading some of her thought-provoking posts on eating disorder recovery, sticking to healthy habits, and not letting a bad day turn into two. As a certified clinical nutritionist, she promotes a nourishing and cruelty-free lifestyle with her delicious recipes, and acts much like an online coach and friend with her supportive and knowledgeable posts.

Happy Little Vegans
I read very few family-related blogs, but I love Jenna’s focus on veganism and the modern family. Her blog is proof that a vegan family with two active boys can survive and flourish, contrary to popular belief. Her family-friendly recipes and gorgeous food photography provide inspiration for all parents interested in a planet-friendly lifestyle.

For the bloggers above who are interested in passing their award on to others, here’s what you need to do next:
1. Make a post that links back to the blogger who gave you the award (that’s me!).
2. Nominate up to 10 bloggers to receive the award and list them in your post along with links to their blogs.
3. Don’t forget to tell them they’ve received the award by posting a comment on their blog.
