How far will you travel for vegan food? Delicious vegan food, wonderful hospitality and cozy ambiance – every time! I’m writing today.. finally, and that’s due to the happiness this vegan cafe brings to me all year round. The Garden Cafe, Woodstock, New York.

Friends Or Tacos?

IMG_4440

Ever drive your friends crazy with the latest foodie idea, diet, meal plan or weight goal? I do – all the time. I don’t actually know how I even have any friends left. This time it was day 3 of Raw til’ 4. My friends were willing and excited (I think) to do a vegetarian weekend upstate. “Vegetarian”.. I’ll take […]

It’s all about the sides!

File Nov 26, 9 55 45 AM

No.. I don’t miss having turkey on Thanksgiving. I get asked that a lot but honestly, it’s really about the sides anyway. That’s where the creativity, variety and flavors come in. There are so many favorites from stuffing to sweet potatoes with marshmallows! This year my Mom asked me to make a couple additions to her huge layout; in particular, a […]

Raw Kiwi Pistachio Pie

I’m a sucker for a free ebook, especially of the recipe variety! I think these email offers with a dozen online bonus gifts are the new infomercial. They get me every time – drawing me in to the point where I forget what I am buying. When the real purchase finally came in the mail, What Do Raw Fooders Eat, I admitted to myself that I better […]

IMG_5682

“Good luck eating vegan in Barcelona”, I was told. “They don’t really have any vegetables!” What? I was puzzled being that Barcelona is such a major tourist city. I imagined it would be somewhat culturally diverse in its cuisine. Barcelona is world renown for it’s beautiful architecture especially the stunning work of Antoni Gaudí. Barcelona is also a popular destination […]

IMG_4799

Vegans and hummus go hand in hand. More frequently than not, it’s our saviour. Well.. mine anyway. It’s like a safe food. Non-vegans generally adore it and so will offer it as a snack at parties. Many restaurants will carry it, especially the Mediterranean ones and for sure.. a falalfa place is always nearby. In New york at least! Hummus […]

Buffalo Cauliflower bites

Let’s cut to the chase- you could make anything “buffalo” style, serve it with a great dip and it would taste good. Admit it! I have never seen such a reaction to my vegan food as with this picture. It’s not like my friends are about to become vegan (although a girl can wish) but moreso that they can see […]

My visit to CAS; Catskill Animal Sanctuary

Arthur

Disconnect. That’s it. I was looking for the right word to sum up my feeling as I was walking up the winding road away from Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS) in upstate New York. I was torn between disconnect and desensitized. I’m talking about people here not the animals. I feel that if the average person knew what went on with […]

Dining out vegan – tips for the newbie

IMG_2207

15 years ago or so I tried to go vegan for two weeks. I redefined the word bitch and nearly killed a few people with my impatience and sarcasm. Not very compassionate at all. I didn’t know then one tenth of what I know today. There also were very few options available and most people with whom I ran circles with […]
