In the Air / First Vegan Meal in Alaska

In the Air / First Vegan Meal in Alaska

On the way to Alaska, finally!

We spent most of the day traveling. Here are some of the pictures I took from the air… because there was no food around.IMG_1010

The land is organized in neat patchwork, dotted with the clouds shadows.

I was excited to catch this rainbow halo around our plane’s shadow. I looked it up on the interweb to find out it had a name: a Glory. It was pretty spectacular. It has to do with water droplets and the sun. Here are a few of the many pictures I took, convinced I was witnessing some celestial occurrence. IMG_1029

Entering Alaska. The paint by number mountain view.IMG_1074

Food, finally. Organic Oasis in Anchorage promised an easy vegan meal, with options clearly labeled. We were famished upon arrival. So it was an ideal stop. DSC_0014

The tabouleh salad for starts. This was a welcome fresh bite, filled with herbs. Vegan Thousands Island dressing (Vegenaise-based) on the side was kind of a random choice but it did brighten it up a bit.DSC_0005

My entree, the Hula Burger–a pretty massive tempeh slab topped with a delicious mango pineapple salsa, lettuce, sprouts, bell pepper, red onion, tomato & vegan mayo on a soft, toasted bun. A bit wet but I annihilated it. DSC_0009

Lots to love here.IMG_1095

And c’mon. I’ll definitely have to partake in some vegan cake. I opted for the carrot cake. IMG_1090

It was very moist and delicious. IMG_1098

That’s all we have the moxy for tonight, Alaska. More tomorrow, for sure.
