Holiday Giveaway: A Subscription To 'Vegetarian Times'

Happy Christmakwanzakah!

Me (The worst blogger of 2012)

I could blame the radio silence blog on living on a farm with shotty internet. I could blame moving six times (four of which being from one coast to another) within the year. I may even go as far to blame writer's block. But the reality is, I just haven't been inspired to blog. I don't have the same fuel to be as active on social media as I once did. Once upon a time, I was known for blogging effectively...I even taught others how to do it. Here's to hoping none of my former students follow my example, eh? So here's to hoping Santa doesn't determine who's on the naughty or nice list based on frequency of blogging.

Now that I'm living more of an online life, aka not working in the fields ten hours a day, I'll strive to do better. Heck, even updating once a month would be an improvement from once every six months. So be please be patient with me as I get back into the groove.

And what better way to get back into things then channeling the season of giving and hooking some of you up with a free, digital, year-long subscription to Vegetarian Times the magazine of your choice (full choice list here). There are a ton of great periodicals to choose from, but these would likely be my top two: 


And if you're already blessed with a subscription to these, then check out this handy list of other mags I think you may dig.

So good! So, so good! Interested? You should be. Plus, in a digi format, your inner-nomad/feng shui-self doesn't have to balk at what to do with one more thing to recycle (or pack around). Oh, and also, this could mark the end of you flipping through the newest copy in the store, covertly taking pictures of tasty recipes on your phone, so you don't have to buy the whole magazine. Wait, you don't do that? No, of course not. Me neither.

Here's what you do to enter:

Comment on this post, indicating which magazine you'd like, along with your email address. And if you like, I'd love to know your take on:

  • a post or subject that you'd like to see me write about here on the blog in the future, or
  • your favorite vegetarian/vegan holiday dish(es)!

And on 12/23 12/26** at 2 p.m. PT, I will randomly select 9 winners. Until then! 

Disclosure: Zinio is compensating me one subscription for writing this post.

**I'm extending the deadline for this post, so more readers will have the opportunity to enter. I wasn't thinking that people wouldn't be online as much during the holidays!

help a poor kid out and hook me up. last year, my girlfriend made an amazing vegan smokey "cheddar cheese" dip. it has cashews, nutritional yeast and carrots. makes for some tasty vegetable dip:

I love my vegan tortiere (meat pie). The combination of flaky pastry (gluten free, of course) and smokey "meat" filling is to die for. Nut roast comes in a close second! :)

Isn't that ironic?
I was just going through an old group of VT magazines that I found in a box in my storage room while looking for something else.

I don't have anything to suggest, at present; I think the magazine has covered just about everything I'd ever have considered, anyway. It's always good to be exposed to new things.

My favorite recipe is a nut mushroom loaf baked in puff pastry for special occasions.

Favourite holiday recipe? There are too many to choose, but right now I'm craving green banana escabeche (guineitos en escabeche).

I would love to see sugar-free vegan dessert recipes!

Vegetarian Times

I'm making a Brie/veggie stuffing pastry roll thing for Christmas this year. Wish me luck, it's more than a bit experimental.

I'd love to win Veg News! My favourite holiday dish is a wild rice, cranberry, broccoli, pine nut casserole.

Jenny - December 23, 2012 5:51 PM

I would love to win VegNews - it's a relatively new-to-me mag right now. I'm transitioning to a whole foods, plant based dietary intake, and am really enjoying all the new recipes I've been finding!

I made a vegan chocolate mousse pie for Thanksgiving. It turned out (on one hand) tasty, but on the other hand, also very bitter due to the high cacao level. I do plan on making it again, with some tweaks.

Deb E. - December 23, 2012 6:44 PM

I have subscribed to Vegetarian Times a few times but Veg News looks good to me now (and love Zinio). I checked out their site and the articles are just what I'm interested in. I'd like to see more info on how to make food more portable or recipes that are more bite sized. We are increasingly eating on the run and being gluten-free means I make it and pack it or I don't eat. And don't worry, we all get tired of living online every now and then. I catch up on blogs and enjoy them. Thanks for the giveaway and Merry Christmas! My email if not attached from above is dede12812 at hotmail dot com.

Jeri Thurber - December 24, 2012 5:14 AM

I would love to win a subscription to Veg News! I would like to read more blog posts about quick, whole foods vegan 1-pot/casserole dishes.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Gill - December 24, 2012 11:08 AM

Thank you for offering this giveaway.

I would be interested in any one of three magazines: Vegetarian Times, Organic Gardening, or Yoga Journal.

Please write about issues of cheese, and vegan cheese substitutes or complements, as there could be a sizable number of vegetarians who would want to go totally vegan, but love cheese.

Happy Holidays!

Cameron Collins - December 27, 2012 3:10 PM

I'd like to see more on GMO and whether it matters. Oh, and whether juicing is beneficial.

AND...gotta go with homemade "turkey" that my neighbor does with gluten (or did, she just found out she has celiac) along with a nice thick vegan gravy and roasted potatoes!!
