Throwback Thursday: Bloodroot, 2007

Throwback Thursday: Bloodroot, 2007

I’ve been to Bloodroot, the feminist bookstore and restaurant in Bridgeport, CT, several times–the last being this time in 2007. I have never blogged about it because the food is pretty basic. But having visited the music store / vegan cafe, I thought I’d throw back […]

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

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) […]

Connecticut Day Tripper

Connecticut Day Tripper

Connecticut, New York’s northern neighbor, has plenty of vegan eats to feast upon. It’s an ideal destination for a day trip. I can get to Connecticut without heading far into the New York City area and her more messy crossings. The Throgs Neck Bridge is […]

A Day In Connecticut

A Day In Connecticut

Vegan food is just like “regular” food. You put it in your mouth, chew it, then swallow. And just like “regular” food, it can be made of junk or it can be made of quality. Vegan foods are not exempt from the simple truth that […]

Live Free Or Die. (Vegan New Hampshire, Day 2)

I love New England. This I knew but had forgotten. As the hours of watching the scenery went by, I remembered. Here are some food highlights from our Day 2 in New Hampshire. Spoon Revolution is Concord, New Hampshire’s only all-vegan eatery. They offer a […]

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 […]

Vegan New England, Part 5: Divine Treasures

Vegan New England, Part 5: Divine Treasures

Heading back to New York from Massachusetts, I thought I’d multi-task. Though barely an hour above New York, I hardly ever find myself with time to spare in Connecticut. So after a requisite google search, I found a interesting vegan lead, a mid-way stop before […]

Vegan New England, Part 1

Vegan New England, Part 1

My cousin got married in Cohasset, Massachusetts over the weekend, so it was time for a New England roadtrip! I was so impressed with vegan offerings up north and continue to be awed by how vegan consciousness has expanded, resulting in top-notch food options across […]

Pizza Truck

Pizza Truck

At a wedding reception nestled in the country roads of New Preston, Connecticut I encountered a mobile pizza operation, fluent in veganism and perfectly willing to stray from the standard menu of pizza favorites. Though most guests were impressed by the Old World Pizza Truck’s selection […]

On the Side of the Road

On the Side of the Road

Imagine you’re hungry and heading south on the I-95 from Providence back to New York. Through the hum of the Volvo and the 90’s indierock, trees run by the 2-lane stretch of interstate and not much else. The usual blue signs for gas, food and […]
