October’s a special month for me this year, and not just because Halloween falls on a Friday (though that is pretty darn awesome.) This month marks my one year vegan-niversary (is that a thing?!), which seems totally crazy to me right now; time has just flown past! After we returned to Korea from a long weekend in Osaka last October, I had one last KFC (don’t judge meee~), and have been eating animal-free ever since then! Becoming vegan has definitely made me feel a lot healthier. I know I’m totally jinxing myself, but I actually can’t remember the last time I was sick…which is pretty darn impressive for someone who works with snotty kids all day! Anyway, my body just feels good, and I feel way happier, too; no more guilt of saying how much I love animals while chomping into a bacon sandwich…
Anyway! Last week, we had a three-day weekend, so we gorged on all our favorite goodies and took a stroll through sunny Seoul Forest (with Duggie, of course!)
There are many awesome things about living in Seoul (which I will cover in more length in a later blog post), but by far one of the best is getting to nom on endless vegan treats at PLANT every weekend!
One of the first vegan-related blogs I started following was Alien’s Day Out, which is a super cute, yummy recipe-filled day-to-day account of vegan life in Seoul. The blog’s creator, Mipa, is also an illustrator and professional baker who just recently opened her own cafe in Itaewon!
