Mitten Monday - VegMichigan

Monday, September 09, 2013 , , , , 4 Comments

It's only a week late, but I finally came up with a theme for Mondays for my Vegan MoFo posts! (Okay, actually I came up with the theme last Tuesday, but had to wait all the way until today!) One of the main purposes of my blog is to share veg recipes, news, information and happenings with people I meet everyday . . . and those people are usually from Michigan.

So, I decided to highlight some great things going on right here in the mitten state - Michigan! Why the mitten state you might ask? Just look at a map of Michigan. Maybe you're not from Michigan and you don't know that Michiganders carry a handy (no pun intended) state map with them wherever they go. Just ask someone from Michigan where they're from. Watch them lift one hand up and use the other hand to point to the area they're from on their trusty hand map. Try it, it's fun.

Without further ado, let's share some mitten pride, shall we?

VegMichigan is something us Veg Michiganders can be proud of. VegMichigan is "the largest nonprofit organization in Michigan promoting awareness of the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of a plant-based diet and lifestyle." This organization does so many fantastic things! Here are a few of my favorites:

-Annual VegFest (this is a HUGE event with great classes, food, products, coupons, people, etc.)
-Vegan restaurant options (& discounts at some of these restaurants for VegMichigan members)-Monthly get-togethers with like-minded people
-Email newsletters with vegan recipes, happenings & information-Monthly Cooking Demos in Rochester and Ann Arbor
-Vegetarian Starter Guide for members
-VegNews magazine subscription for members
-Other resources on their website
-Sharing information through leafletting,billboards, library displays, etc.

Check out VegMichigan! You'll be glad you did!

  1. That is awesome! I have to admit I don't know much about Michigan but at least I know it is veg friendly:)

    1. I used to think Michigan was not veg friendly at all, but then I traveled around more and realized that Detroit actually is pretty veg friendly.

  2. What a great theme for Mondays! I live in Michigan and I always use the hand!
    I love going to Vegfest! It is always an amazing event.

    1. It really is an amazing event. Hopefully I'll see you there next year (even though you're moving to the west side of the state).
