Plant-Based Restaurant Finds (Making It Work) Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Advice

I'm always getting questions about plant-based options at restaurants. In fact, I have an entire section dedicated to dining out in my new book, The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living. (It's also available in Audible format!)

I've blogged plenty of times about my plant-based dining adventures (if you're looking for a specific city, use the search bar at the top of the page), so this time I asked Herbies on Facebook to share their experiences ...

Why We Shouldn't Hate on Celebrities for Going Vegan Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Advice

On Wednesday my mom sent me this article saying, "Did you know Jennifer Lopez went vegan?"

I couldn't believe it and quickly put a little meme together and posted the happy news on Facebook.

Plant-Based In A Small Town (How To Make It Work!) Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Advice

When someone tells me they can't be plant-based (vegan) it's rarely, "Oh I can't give up [animal product]" and usually more like "Because I live in [place]."

I've been plant-based everywhere -- on a small Caribbean island for a year, in Africa, while traveling to some 35 cities, towns and villages across Europe. Sure, having a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's is nice, but it's not required. In fact, over the last 4 years, I ...
