Finding Meat-Free Food Porn

Vegan Food PhotosI am an insatiable food porn consumer. My Google Reader is full of food blogs, and I scroll happily through food photos and recipes at work, at home, before and after grocery shopping. But nothing kills the mood faster for me as a vegetarian viewer than a big hunk-o’-flesh on the page. Chances are, if you don’t share in the “fleischgeist” of Meatpaper, you won’t salivate at the sight of meaty food photography, either. That rules out otherwise tasty sites like La Tartine Gourmande, Smitten Kitchen, or Food Porn Daily. Veggies seeking flesh-free fare might enjoy Simply Breakfast, Vegan Yum Yum, and What the Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway?, along with Flickr albums of vegan food porn—sites that let you ogle the vegan cupcakes, then bake them, too.

Your favorites?

I agree. There's not a bigger turn-off for me than reading "hey, we decided to have chicken for dinner so I went out and slaughtered my own chicken...." or the same with sheep etc. I can't imagine raising an animal, looking into it's eyes every day, and then BAM! DINNER! Not for me.
