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 […]

Birthday in Ulster County/Woodstock Farm Sanctuary

Birthday in Ulster County/Woodstock Farm Sanctuary

New York’s Ulster County is rich with worthy day trip destinations. And it is just far enough from the City’s hustle and bustle without being too much of a roundtrip drive. Because I have been visiting since I was in high school (My first serious […]

Light & Dark

Light & Dark

It’s morning in Shenandoah, and the sun overcomes its obstacles. As usual. How perfect is a morning? Fresh and potent with opportunity and intention. Never you mind what becomes of it; that’s the evening’s problem to solve. The clouds veil the light, hiding the blue, […]

In the Blue [Shenandoah National Park]

In the Blue [Shenandoah National Park]

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 […]

Crazy From the Heat

Crazy From the Heat

After driving in the desert all day, I’m pretty batty right now. I don’t want to even attempt to wax poetic about just how gorgeous you are, dear America. It is kind of unreal how much unearthly beauty lies within you. I’ll try a little […]

The Magic in Montauk–Youth, Gentrification, Bad Tofu Scramble Wraps and Conspiracy Theory

The Magic in Montauk–Youth, Gentrification, Bad Tofu Scramble Wraps and Conspiracy Theory

Twenty years ago, after our closing shifts at Tower Records in Carle Place, my coworkers and I used to drive to the tip of Long Island, arriving at Montauk Point between 1 or 2 in the morning. We did this repeatedly, ceremoniously, as we inducted new recruits. Together, we’d […]

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 […]

England’s Dreaming–High Tea and Tourist Attractions

England’s Dreaming–High Tea and Tourist Attractions

We are in London for many reasons. One of them is as tourists, another, for me, is as a vegan travel blogger. These two purposes would make up day one of our stay. Though jet-lagged and robbed of hours to sleep by the time difference, […]

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 […]

Vegan Patchogue Eats

Vegan Patchogue Eats

Patchogue’s main strip. Like many in-touch eateries, they get that a vegan option is easy enough to throw together. The dish on the rise at omni establishments all about the country seems to be the Tofu Scramble. I have a growing list of eateries on my […]

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 […]

Blame It On The Tetons.

Blame It On The Tetons.

Buford, Wyoming has only one resident, a Vietnamese man who bought the entire town on eBay. Don Sammons, Buford’s previous lone resident who built the town from nothing and wrote a book about his adventure moved away. So it is still population 1. I stopped […]

The NJ / PA Border

The NJ / PA Border

It is amazing to me how quickly you can discover rural charm outside of the bustling New York City area. It takes about two hours. Those are sloooow, traffic-stricken hours… at any hour. But it’s worth it. Lambertville, New Jersey, which sits on the Delaware River on […]

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 […]

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 […]

V.V. Does A.C.

V.V. Does A.C.

It seems the world gets more and more vegan-friendly everyday. As a vegan food blogger, the surge in vegan options near, kinda near, far and very far is overwhelming. From big cities to small locales, I can’t keep up. But I try… And I looove […]

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 […]

Last Hurrah in San Francisco

Last Hurrah in San Francisco

Almost time to head back east! So I started the day with a donut, a Pepples Donut. The Ferry Building has a market place with high-brow eats, and this Oakland-based all-vegan donut maker has a little outpost there.  The selection was extensive.  I choose the […]

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 […]
