Vegans can go nuts at FOUGHNUTS in Great Neck.

So there is a donut shop in Great Neck, Long Island that is mostly vegan.  How fantastic, right?!  Foughnuts bills itself as a more healthful donut.  And that means… vegan options! (Don’t tell the folks that are still scared of the v-word.)  I stopped by on […]

The Things About Brooklyn.

The Things About Brooklyn.

Above: What’s left of Stephen Powers’ Brooklyn mural.  I kind of love him.  He is so damn clever.  But cleverness does weird stuff to men’s hair. The vegan chocolate donut at Doughnut Plant. I appreciated it, like someone holding the door a few seconds longer than […]

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 […]

Spoilet alert: By the end of this blog post, by the end of my day, I end up… in a cabin in the woods in the mountains within rumbling thunder, the lucky pile of wood between two very vocal mocking birds going on and on […]

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 […]

The variety of vegan options in Los Angeles is overwhelming. While meal destinations are carefully deliberated, there are some guidelines that can help differentiate a good vegan options with a meh vegan option. The first guideline: forget the eateries that have packaged foods on the […]

Special Buddies

Special Buddies

Breakfast can often go two ways–vibrant or gluttonous. This morning we headed over to a no-fail vegan breakfast option that I rarely take part in, an acai bowl. I got The Patriot with banana, strawberry, blueberry, coconut, and acai at Brazailian Acai Bowls in Bakersfield. […]

A Fond Farewell to Charleston

A Fond Farewell to Charleston

With only a few hours to get my munchy on, I hit Nana’s Donuts in doorbust fashion. Nana’s Donuts used to be Diggity Donuts, which I have been peeping on Instagram for a bit. I was excited to learn that what seemed to be electronic evidence […]

The First Coast to The Lowcountry

The First Coast to The Lowcountry

Jacksonville, Florida has vegan credibility. This I state enthusiastically in my head while the locals in Southern Roots Filling Station discuss New York City vegan eats. I could chime in, I suppose, and tell them that New York City isn’t all that spectacular. Well, I mean […]

P.N.W. / Three {Vegan Donuts} in Three {States}

The Pacific Northwest is heavy. Such things I forget.  Having no appetite (!) I barely nibbled on the Mighty Mofo at Chaco Canyon Cafe, A vegan Reuben sandwich with housemade seitan, sauerkraut, mustard, cucumbers & sprouts, served on a soft sourdough. And sprouts.  In Seattle, […]

Orchids are beautiful–and other such understatements. You are my Everything. A batch of Brooklyn’s Dunwell‘s. At like 1030 on Sunday, they […]

Cinnamon Snail at the Pennsy

I’m near Penn Station every so often. And now Cinnamon Snail has a home there: The Pennsy! The Pennsy is a high-end food court attached to Penn Station / Madison Square Garden. It was pretty slow at my arrival during peak rush hours… except for […]

18 Hours: Upstate / Connecticut Loop {Day Trips, 101}

Travel tucks you into new environments, which facilitate different experiences. And experience is the basis of all learning, all growth. So, travel is enlightenment…. Luckily, there is no need to head to an ancient Buddhist temple to derive this wisdom. There is plenty of beauty, adventure, inspiration, oddity (and vegan eats) […]

More and more, I am finding vegan option leads through my followees on Instagram. Sure, a new all-vegan spot gets around the campfire quite easily… but unearthing a “vegan option” is a challenge. Being not so thrilled with the all-vegan places in my home city (I’m waiting […]

All-Vegan Done Right.

All-Vegan Done Right.

Philadelphia is very vegan-friendly. They have eateries that far surpass played out, crowded, lesser-quality Manhattan options. Vegan Commissary is one such eatery. Brunch at Vegan Commissary was perfect. As the name suggests, it’s all-vegan. But there is no need for restriction; Vegan Commissary hits every mark, […]
