World Vegan Day Celebration

Hi All,

Friday (1 Nov) was World Vegan Day and I attended a Vegan Potluck party organised by the very sweet Sonal!

It was my first time attending a vegan potluck and I was really excited. Got to catch up with fellow instagrammers and made new found friends! Really interesting getting to know everyone , hearing their personal stories and going “OMG, you too?”. Nice to be part of the majority for once.  One thing was pretty obvious : We may have different reasons for going vegan or vegetarian (health/animal rights/religion/environmental) but whatever they may be, we’re all working (or rather , un-eating our way) towards a common good.

Everyone contributed a dish for the potluck and the food was nothing short of DEEEELISHHCIOUS! Was so impressed by the dishes and effort put into all the dishes…we have some seriously talented home cooks amongst us!  I ate ate and ATE… don’t waste right?

Beisdes good food and chatter, we also played games! Sonal cleverly came up with this game called “Social Veg-working” – where groups were made to answer questions and perform tasks related to the topic of Being Vegan on different social media platforms.
