The Capital of the United States of America

The Capital of the United States of America

It was kind of hard for me not to hum the intro to House of Cards during my visit. It is kind of the best part of the show. The Capital building peeks out. The White House.  Whoopie. Washington’s phallic monument The National Mall, Lincoln’s Memorial […]

Stick a {South Fork} In Me: Tofu Scrambles On Long Island’s South Shore

Stick a {South Fork} In Me: Tofu Scrambles On Long Island’s South Shore

I had to go to traffic court in the Hamptons today.  So after my plea bargain, I checked out some tofu scrambles that have been on my list.  It’s not everyday I am that far east on The Island.  First, Harbor Market & Kitchen in […]

A Love Letter to You (Philadelphia)

A Love Letter to You (Philadelphia)

There’s always a reason to go to Philadelphia. Usually it’s food. But the food invites you to make a day of it, to explore other things. Then, the duration of exploration makes you hungry again. (So yes, it’s mostly about food.) But Philadelphia is only […]

I want S’more

I want S’more

Sometimes I make enough cupcakes, enough that I have to drive to work. With a staff potluck and a bake sale that I organized, this was the case this past week. Both events called for a special load of cupcakes. I opted for the nostalgic s’mores […]

Tofu Scramble P.S.A. in Port Jefferson

Tofu Scramble P.S.A. in Port Jefferson

The Tofu Scramble. It is becoming ubiquitous. Always a welcome sight on an omni-menu, I’ve had the dish all over the place–as many vegans have. From Anchorage, Alaska to Yellowstone National Park, I’ve appreciated the dish. (My favorite? Probably Wayward Cafe in Seattle, Washington?) But even with […]

36 Hours in Portland

36 Hours in Portland

Though I love the Northeast, love the deciduous trees; I love to see the snow-capped mountains of the West emerge from the plane window. Like Oregon’s welcoming committee: Mount St. Helens on the left and Mount Hood on the right. Not pictured but also pushing […]

The Really Long Post About Yellowstone Park That Eventually Has Pictures of Vegan Food

The Really Long Post About Yellowstone Park That Eventually Has Pictures of Vegan Food

For a gal who always sees the first a.m. showing of movies in the theater to avoid people, going to Yellowstone National Park in August is a little counterintuitive. However, crowded in Yellowstone Country is far different than crowded in, say, the New York City […]

Gainesville, FLA

Gainesville, FLA

Gainesville is a university town, so you know vegan options are good… for them educated, idealist types. Starting early, breakfast: The Tempeh Scramble with potatoes, toast with vegan butter and housemade jam at The Jones B-side.  Good, hearty fare, but soy-saucey marinade made the dish […]

Southern Vegan: Florida’s Panhandle

Southern Vegan: Florida’s Panhandle

For this school teacher, the summer is the season for Vegan Victuals reporting. Heading south for some loose ends, I first wound up in Savannah, Georgia, a gorgeous little city with a dearth of vegan options. But this was just a quick stop, so no worries. I […]

Brooklyn Whiskers Brick & Mortar

Brooklyn Whiskers Brick & Mortar

Vegan ShopUp vendor Brooklyn Whiskers has its own space now! The Electrician and I hit them real early to avoid unnecessary social interaction. The fact that they’re actually open early suits us early birders quite nicely. Bakeries should open single-digits early. Them’s the rules. I […]

Day 1: The Best of Central Florida

Day 1: The Best of Central Florida

The Sanctum has a fresh, vibrant vegan breakfast items that are the perfect start for a long day of sites. Any place with a mural like that is bound to deliver on plant-based goodies… equally important, kick-butt French press coffee equivalent to nine cups of hotel’s […]

Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg

Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg

Though science-food isn’t my thing, I needed to try Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg for you, dear blog. I preordered them from Food Fight a few weeks ago. I have never had a craving for a plate of eggs since going vegan and have evolved to not even consider them food, […]

Autumn Beauty, Vegan Oneonta/Cooperstown

Autumn Beauty, Vegan Oneonta/Cooperstown

Before setting out on a road trip, a vegan has to consider how long it may be until a proper meal is available. Like a marathoner, it may be appropriate to load up on carbs to anchor the behind in for hours driving (not running). […]

From Anchorage to Seward, Alaska / Vegan on Holland America Cruise, Day 1

From Anchorage to Seward, Alaska / Vegan on Holland America Cruise, Day 1

We woke up with some goals. There were some cruise clarifications that were pretty important. Then there was breakfast, the sometimes-unattainable meal for a traveling vegan. And requisite basking in the breathtaking beauty of Alaska, the Last Frontier. For breakfast, a local favorite, Snow City […]

{More} Freshwater Life / Vegan in the Poconos

{More} Freshwater Life / Vegan in the Poconos

Hawley, Pennsylvania is a resort town in the Poconos Mountains Lake Region located just far enough from the thriving metropolis New York City to feel like you’ve entered an entirely different habitat. Though most of the area resorts are for various outdoor adventuring, The Lodge […]

My Breakfast and Lunch, and Why I Don’t Like New Music

My Breakfast and Lunch, and Why I Don’t Like New Music

I’m thinking of the piano chords to Morning Has Broken by Cat Stevens. They’re kind of thundering, like a definitive decision, like a confident first step of something. I love how that song makes me feel. What is so delightful about music is that you get to pick […]

Jersey Day Trip

Jersey Day Trip

Treating my home, and its surrounding cities, like I would an unknown city—subject to the same fine tooth comb in search of vegan options—my list of vegan leads in the neighbor state New Jersey was growing. And preferring a random and mysterious lone vegan option […]

Crossing the Mason-Dixon: Vegan Eats in Richmond, VA (Day 3)… And Onward to Delaware

Crossing the Mason-Dixon: Vegan Eats in Richmond, VA (Day 3)… And Onward to Delaware

After a night of total gluttony, we got an early start. I wanted to hit WPA Bakery (Well-made Pastry Alliance) for their weekly vegan donut options. Then we were hitting the road, heading back to New York.  They had a few vegan options scattered about… but […]

Midwest Vegan, Day 7 [Goodbye, Chicago]

Midwest Vegan, Day 7 [Goodbye, Chicago]

Karyn delivered–in save-the-best-for-last fashion. And after peeping her menus from her multiple vegan restaurants for many years, I was finally sitting in Karyn’s on Green, ready for Saturday brunch. I had the Breakfast Sliders: two delicious Belgian waffles for a bun, their yummy butternut squash “bacon,” a […]

Midwest Vegan, Day 1

Midwest Vegan, Day 1

Home very briefly, it was time already to head back into these United States… by way of Chicago. But first, a scenic overlook in which we gaze upon the isle of Manhattan, New York City’s shining man-child and it’s pleasingly sharp rectangular Central Park. We’d […]
