2/22 Vegan Grub Crawl part three

Our last stop on our Atlanta Vegan Grub Crawl was Healthful Essence, a Caribbean vegan/vegetarian restaurant, featuring Jamaican specialties.  As we walked through the door we were greeted by reggae music and the smell of incense and spicy things. They have a rotating menu of raw as well as cooked dishes to choose from. The [...]

2/20 Vegan Grub Crawl part deux

We are on the road again, this time travelling to the East coast of Florida. The plan is to celebrate my birthday, see our nephews and niece Isabella and reacquaint ourselves with warmth and sunshine.  We have a full tank of gas, a cooler full of vegan edibles and our sleepy Chihuahua. But before we [...]

2/18 Vegan Grub Crawl part 1

Happy Meatless Monday. I love talking to you about vegan travel because before I went vegan, I believed that traveling as one would be a challenge. Over the past few years I have come to realize that isn’t the case at all. It is just as easy to have your Meatless Monday or meatless any [...]

2/4 Five Spice Veggie Lo Mein

Happy Meatless Monday. It is snowing here like it may never stop. I feel like I am trapped in a snow globe. It is a day for head-to- toe fleece and  Chinese take out.  I would add an armful of movies and a mug of vegan hot chocolate for my snowfall survival plan.  Sandy, Chloe [...]

2/1 Quest for Vegan Moisturizer

I admit it….I am easily swayed by marketing and packaging.   I have been known to use my Visa card as a stabilizer for a sometimes unpredictable self esteem. My Chinese restaurant place-mat horoscope says that I am “Prone to spend freely.” Yesterday I found myself in the aisle at the drug store with the anti-aging creams [...]
