Healthy Vegan Friday #28: Joining the team

Healthy Vegan Friday

I’ve got something very exciting to share with you today.  Green Thickies is now a co-host for the blog party Healthy Vegan Fridays.   If you don’t know what a blog party (Also called a Blog Hop and a linky party) is, it’s a regular post where other bloggers can share their best articles and readers can find a great collection of similar posts that they are interested in.

Healthy Vegan Fridays is a blog party sharing all the best healthy vegan food and information based around whole foods and minimizing processed foods.  It is also hosted by Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan, and Gabby @ The Veggie Nook.  If you’ve seen my 8 Best Vegan Blogs post then you’ll already know what a massive fan I am of these 2 blogs.  So when I heard they were looking for a third co-host I jumped at the chance and was honoured to be selected.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know what a believer I am in eating whole foods for health and I’ve loved Healthy Vegan Fridays since it began.  I’ve got so much inspiration, knowledge and great recipes from this blog hop every week and I really hope you get as much out of it as I have.

So every week from now on Green Thickies will be bringing you all the best Healthy Vegan recipes and articles to help you get healthy from Healthy Vegan Fridays.  If you are a blogger I’d love it if you shared your best healthy vegan recipes here and help to spread the word about this great blog party.  If you don’t have a blog you are welcome to share your favourite recipes in the comments and enjoy the great selection of articles each week.

Every week we start by highlighting the top 3 most popular posts based on the number of clicks they received.  Then each of us choose our personal favourites from the collection.  After this you will find all the articles that have been shared so far this week.  This blog party is open for submissions from Friday until Tuesday each week.  The later you view this post in the week the more submissions there will be so make sure you check this post again after Tuesday to see all the entries that we’ve received for the week.

We start by recapping the best posts from last week and after that you will see all the posts submitted so far this week:
