THE VIRTUAL POT LUCK celebrating my 1 Yr. Veggiversary!

You are all invited!!
 Today is my 1 YR. VEGGIVERSARY!! One year ago I committed to never eat meat again. (It actually took a few more weeks to become a vegan!) and one year of the best health I have known on over 20 years!
To celebrate, I am holding a virtual Pot Luck and you are invited!  I asked everyone on Facebook to post a recipe ( with a pic or link if possible) of the dish they would like to bring to this grand occasion, and everyone brought the most awesome food and drink! If this were not a virtual event, I would have eaten wa-a-a-ay too much, LOL! I will have a blast for the next few weeks trying all of these amazing recipes.  So let's begin our virtual feast on vegan and gluten free goodness from great cooks and bloggers from  all around the world to celebrate my one year Veggiversary! (Simply click on the name of the dish in bold which is a link to each recipe)

Gluten Free SCD and Veggie brought an amazing Nut Loaf

Krys at Cooking with Two Vegan Boys  brought a delicious "Good Shepherd's" Pie

Iris at Daily Diet Tribe brought heavenly Raw Carrot Cupcakes with Coconut Cashew Frosting

 Jean brought scrumptious Grain Free Almond Meal Chocolate ChipCookies

 The Healing Spoon brought divine Chocolate Charlies

Priscilla at Gluten Free Vegan Mom Who Knows, brought her amazing Blueberry OatBreakfast Muffins

Viv at VivaGypsy Rocks Vegan and Gluten-free, brought  ItalianGarbanzo Balls (No-Meat Balls)


Megan at Maid in Alaska - Gluten Free & Allergy Friendly recipes, brought her favorite Raw Beet, Carrot & Apple Salad

Sandy, The Gluten free Vegan, brought not only her favorite bread recipe using my favorite mix from Pamela’s, but a whole host of tips for gluten free baking!  I am so inspired that  feel like baking GF bread again with her tips on her blog!

The RA Vegan brought her delicious Three Bean Salad


Hobby And More (Breads, Indian, Vegan Recipes) brought a very special
Toor Daal with BayLeaf and crisp Cilantro (Pigeon Pea soup) with cumin scented Rice

Misti brought the drinks, Raw Mango,Goji, and Lime Smoothie, a recipe she found at

The Meatless Diva brought us a delicious Simple Vegetable Curry

Sacha Vida brought a lovely Vegetable Salad with Sacha Inchi oil Vinaigrette.

Katee brings a Mixed Vegetable Curry from Moosewood 
She says " I just use olive-oil instead of butter, and instruction #11 can be ignored (I've never added the yogurt). I often use broccoli as well as cauliflower. Every time I've made it for potlucks it is a sure hit, and even friends of mine that claim they can't stand vegetables have loved this recipe. :)"

All of you have contributed to my journey to wellness by sharing vegan, gluten free recipes,  nutritional info, and so much more, and I know I could not have done it without you! I hope we continue on this journey together; sharing, learning together, growing, and getting ever closer to a healthier, happier, sustainable world. It is my one year veggiversary, but it is only the beginning for me and all  those I interact with and help along their journey as well!
