Gluten Free Vegan Community

Some of you may have noticed recently this new symbol on the side of our blog recently. If you click on the picture it will lead to a new web community of gluten free AND vegan bloggers called xgfx. I'm so excited to be one of the sites listed. Those of you have been reading my blog for a little while will hopefully know that blogging for me isn't some egotistical boost but is all about that sense of community with bloggers and other veg*ns more generally. I have met some of my best friends through blogging and just love sharing and learning from everyone!
If you haven't already you should go check out the other awesome blogs on the site. The site will expand at some stage to feature recipes and gluten free vegan tips.
In other gluten free vegan news, I've added a google map of places that we have reviewed which feature gluten free vegan options in Melbourne. I'm slowly sorting through all of the reviews and adding more.  I hope this is helpful for other gluten free vegans or even just coeliacs who want some veg food.

  1. you know the gluten free thing was created by meat industry promoters to discourage the cheapest meat substitute on the planet that you can make from any brand of common household flour - wheat gluten meat. It used to be called the poor man's meat, because you can make it cheap. It has the texture and if flavored right, the taste of meat. They don't want people to know about it so they started a whole durge of books saying that gluten is unhealthy. Now it's everywhere, but they're particularly interested in promoting to the vegan community. makes it hard on us - what with wheat being in everything. You can get a recipe online for Wheat Meat.
