F*ck, That's Vegan?! #18

18. "Toilet Mags"

Sitting on the toilet while flipping through a magazine about delicious food: is it gross, or a wonderful way to build your culinary acumen?

Instead of the usual veganized recipe from the F*ck, That’s Delicious book, I'm veganizing a treasured experience — food magazines by the toilet — in FTV?! #18. Never seen a bathroom magazine collection? Where have you been pooping all these years?

If reading about food on the toilet sounds like a way you want to spend your time, check out this list of (mostly online) vegan magazines and publications that will leave you feeling like a competent and well-read vegan foodie after toilet time.

Side note: Apart from featuring great recipes and food-focused stories, most of the publications below also have some amount of lifestyle, wellness, news, and other pretty helpful and entertaining information to find on their sites. However, since "Food Magazines By the Toilet" is the assignment, I've specifically linked the food or recipes section of each of these kick-ass, female founded, vegan publications below!!

There are some great publications out there that are print-only/paid, but to make this easier on you as the reader, only the free food-related content those publications offer is linked below.
