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.
Constellations on land.
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.
Entering Alaska. The paint by number mountain view.
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.
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.
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.
Lots to love here.
And c’mon. I’ll definitely have to partake in some vegan cake. I opted for the carrot cake.
It was very moist and delicious.
That’s all we have the moxy for tonight, Alaska. More tomorrow, for sure.
