More Vegan Stuff On Long Island

More Vegan Stuff On Long Island

I am having a hard time keeping up with new vegan offerings.  And since “plant-based” was named the number one food trend for 2018, I’ll be very busy. Here is a quick run-down on some new-to-me vegan options on la isla largo. Real Food, Real […]

3 Brothers Again: Italian Vegan on Long Island

3 Brothers Again: Italian Vegan on Long Island

I have been blogging about 3 Brothers for many years now… since the unstyled and less fabulous Jay Astafa first created the vegan menu for their original Rockville Centre location in 2009. And since then, I’ve tried most of his casual food endeavors… his dinner […]

Greetings From Nashville, Tennessee

Greetings From Nashville, Tennessee

I arrived in Nashville in the early a.m.  One, because of entering the Central Time zone and two, more so, because I left Sweetwater, TN at the crack of dawn. I just didn’t know what to expect as far as traffic. But it was smooth […]

Seaglass Fish / A “Fish” Sandwich

Seaglass Fish / A “Fish” Sandwich

Meeting up with a friend for lunch in Manhattan, I set the meeting spot at Seaglass, the beautiful sea-inspired carousel in Battery City Park. Thankfully, it was empty.  With it being so photogenic, I thought I’d have to creatively crop carousel riders out of my […]

V.V. Burger Showdown: Match 5: Cardinal Veggie Burger Sins​
[Blossom On Carmine vs. Blossom du Jour]

Match #5 of the V.V. Burger Showdown: The Blossom battle turns out to be a lesson on how not to do a veggie burger. Blossom On Carmine vs. Blossom du Jour Despite the proclamations from HappyCow, PeTA,  and VegNews, I often say that New York City is not so vegan-friendly. […]

On V.V. Summer Assignment, Day 2: Bloodbuzz Ohio

On V.V. Summer Assignment, Day 2: Bloodbuzz Ohio

What is hard about being a roadtripping blogger is that all your pearls of wisdom–the thoughts and ideas born on the road, inside its motion and pace–are diminished into imperceptible dots by the time you’re in a place you can write. Even thoughts that build […]

Night Game–Citi Field Vegan

Night Game–Citi Field Vegan

The second to last row in Citi Field is first row for the sunset viewing. First course munchies: A slice of V for Vegan from Two Boots‘s stand. Though I’m not a fan of the Daiya fake cheese, it’s a rule you get to splurge at the ballpark. […]

Packaged.

Packaged.

Though packaged is generally a turn-off, I sometimes makes an exception for Field Roast. For one, its deli slices and sausages are seitan-based, less processed (and scary) than that soy protein isolate stuff. Field Roast is not secretly ConAgra, like that popular brand of meat analogs. They’re a nice company […]

D-Town Vegan

D-Town Vegan

Fields and fields of corn. This is what’s inside the heart of the heartland. After hours of fields of corn, I was back in the Motor City area to sample some vegan eats. Lunch, finally was at Inn Season Cafe in Royal Oak. They have a promising […]

Asbury Park, Vegan Style

Asbury Park, Vegan Style

The reach of vegan keeps extending… and I am thankful for these opportunities of discovery and… sustenance. My latest discovery, Goldie’s in Asbury Park, is an all-vegan and all-respectful-of-food eatery on the renovated Cookman Avenue in downtown in the Jersey Shore destination of Asbury Park. […]

Humane Education / Humane Eats [Day 2 & 3]

Humane Education / Humane Eats [Day 2 & 3]

Days are jam-packed with learning. Luckily I am fed well. Here are the last couple of days’ eats, taken with my crappy camera phone. Mushroon no-quessadillas with nooch cheese sauce. Homemade chocolate ice cream Black bean and corn salad and pico de gallo Root veggie […]

Spring Springing

Spring Springing

With winter’s long awaited goodbye, I am psyching myself up for tasty Spring. A gluttonous long-overdue feast of eats. What’s Spring have to do with eating a lot of food? Nothing really–but I plan partake in feasting anyway, loosely connecting it to some seasonal ritual […]

3 Mac & Cheese in 1 Night

3 Mac & Cheese in 1 Night

One night, after our after-school crafting class, two hungry teachers did a Mac and Cheese Crawl through Brooklyn. It was an ambitious evening, but we perservered. Why? Who knows. Elbow Room on Flatbush ave, sharing space with Morgan’s BBQ, is a hip mac & cheese counter […]

A Day in NYC

A Day in NYC

Essex, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, is a huge brunch destination. It must be listed in the NFT Guide or something. I have wanted to try their lone vegan dish, the Vegan Mexican Matzo Brei, for quite some time. So with a few days off at […]

The Sauce.

The Sauce.

Whenever I am heating up a sauce, I pour way more than enough into the pot. Because I slurp it by the spoonful at each degree it rises. I love sauce. And that’s what this collection of food pictures have in common. Sauce. What a […]

Vegan Long Island Roaming

Vegan Long Island Roaming

In a gesture of goodbye towards my old home of Brooklyn, I now have a brand new car! Embracing suburban life here on Long Island is a bit difficult without one… but more than that, I love to drive. Though it’s been less than a […]

Vegan in Westchester County!

Vegan in Westchester County!

Even though this born and raised New Yorker has travel to the far reaches of the Us of A to sample vegan eats, I haven’t really explored the vegan options in Westchester County, New York City’s northern suburb. I am usually passing through early in […]

First Breakfast, Then Brunch

First Breakfast, Then Brunch

This weird article let me know that the 3 Brothers close to my home was not, in fact, the place to go to get Chef Jay‘s food anymore. The original owners sold the place. I am a bit relieved about this news as the place […]

A Visit to Three Brothers

A Visit to Three Brothers

Hadn’t been to Rockville Centre’s Three Brothers in awhile. It was time for a visit. Their mozzarella sticks are the star of the show. I am happy they are a bit narrower in girth than the earlier recipe. I think most know how I feel […]

Vegan Philly Cheesesteak-a-thon

Vegan Philly Cheesesteak-a-thon

What better excursion can one take on a day honoring our Founding Fathers than one to the city where our independence was  organized and our government drafted? Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was time to head south on this blustery winter day to take in the blue sky […]

Naked.

Naked.

Max made me a vegan pizza, start to finish, with his bare hands. (And I know he washed them often as he is allergic to gluten!) Sure, sure. This is what he gets paid to do, yes. He’s a Naked pizza man! Naked is a […]

Goodbye, Brooklyn (Part 2)

Goodbye, Brooklyn (Part 2)

After another day of moving stuff at my apartment, a well-earned lunch at Bliss Grand. I wanted to come back for their Seitan Taquito. I ordered the large plate which included sauteed greens. The dish as a whole was super-salty.  The greens and the Daiya-filled […]

Little Anthony’s, Italian Vegan in Albany

Little Anthony’s, Italian Vegan in Albany

Little Anthony’s is a pretty standard-seeming pizza parlor. Wood decor, a map of Italy on the wall, green/white/red, and an inviting counter with pizzeria-type guys (My definition of pizzeria guys: aimable, hard-working, Italian)… but they have a menu filled with vegan options! Vegan pizza… vegan […]

Driving To Eat {Connecticut}

Driving To Eat {Connecticut}

Life is like a… (box of vegan chocolates) You never know what you’re gonna get. Back at the amazing Divine Treasures in Manchester, Connecticut, CandyPenny and I had a breakfast of chocolate. This vegan gem of a chocolate shop sandwiched between the Chinese take-out and […]
