Vegan fun in Portland! Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

Portland, by reputation, is synonymous with vegan. That's what first attracted us to Portland 2.5 years ago. Scott & I were living in Boston back then but were looking for a new home on the West Coast. We traveled to and checked out San Fran, Seattle and Portland because we'd heard those cities were vegan-friendly. Unfortunately, I was newly vegan at the time and completely unaware of happycow and other online veg sites. Thus, we were at the mercy of …

Good-Bye California Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

For the last two days we've been driving through California, making our way to Portland, Oregon. Our travels thus far have been full of beautiful surprises and good vegan eats. Gosh, I hope this good fortune continues! I'd always heard "you must drive the PCH from LA to SF once in your life" and now I know why. The Pacific Coast Highway is absolutely breath-taking! Here are some of the photos -- for the rest, check flickr (even catch some …

Yosemite Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

Scott & I spent the weekend in Yosemite, easily one of the most beautiful places on earth. These pictures don't do Yosemite justice but I'm sharing them all the same.

In Yosemite, I was able to find plenty of vegan food from soy yogurt to alternative baking co. cookies to cereals, Amy's …

LA: Hugo's Tacos Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

Taco huts are a perminent fixture in the Southern California landscape and Hugo's Tacos is one of the more famous huts.


They also happen to offer a vegan version of everything they make (plus a vegan deep fryer if you're into that sort of thing). After several vegans (and non-vegans) told us we haven't lived until we've sampled the soy chorizo taco, well... curiosity was sparked. BUT despite my outdoorsy hobbies, I'm a total princess about food and the idea …

Boston: Grasshopper & TJ Scallywaggles Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel
Before we left Boston for LA, Scott & I gorged ourself on Asian dishes at Grasshopper and Vegan pizza at T.J. Scallywaggles. I thought if I ate enough, I'd never want to eat it again or I wouldn't miss it. I was wrong. Thus, while in NY, we decided to take a day trip to Boston (a short 4hr train ride away) to see our friends and eat at our two favorite restaurants, which coincidentally happen to be next …
