Lone Star Plate began in 2008 as a group blog documenting vegan life in Texas. Over time, most of the original bloggers moved on to new projects. Today, Lone Star Plate is written by mollyjade and covers vegan food, lifestyles, communities, and activism from El Paso to Houston and everywhere in between. I live in Austin, Texas, with my husband and two cats. I have strong opinions about chili (no beans!) and will take almost any opportunity to travel or try new food in Texas. I’m always in the middle of three or four books. I think “y’all” is an extremely useful word. Besides Lone Star Plate, I also help organize Texas VegFest.
