Last week we left for our summer abroad... stopping in one of our all-time favorite cities, Boston, along the way (Fun fact: Scott and I lived in Boston for about four years when I attended law school).

Boston is a beautiful city with a spirit and pride I can't quite describe. The people and culture are distinctively different, but in a way that's refreshing and honest.

I loved living in Boston, and although it isn't my home ...

With summer officially one day away, it's about that time to bust out the tent and sleeping bags for some camping!

I have a HUGE section in my new book, The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living (also available in Audible format -- and read by me!) dedicated to camping and what foods to bring, but here's a quick rundown on how to survive as a Herbie in the great outdoors!

To start off-- it really depends on what ...

On Wednesday, Team HH and I visited the Happiest Place on Earth (a.k.a. Disneyland and Disney California Adventure).

One of my assistants is California-born, and loves Disneyland, so when I casually dropped into conversation I'd never been, she said "Umm... I think HH HQ needs a field trip." Actually, she just looked at me like I was a space alien, and with a slight hint of pity, which I translated to meaning we needed to take a ...

For the past three weeks, Scott & I have been on a snowboarding trip through Park City, Jackson Hole, and Montana.

Although we've been cooking most of our meals in our hotel room using my trusty pressure cooker (stay tuned for a future post on that with pics!), we do like to venture out from time to time and see what we can find!

We went to Park City first and had a helluva time eating out. I'm not saying there weren't any vegan or plant-based options. I'm sure there were. The problem was every restaurant was booked, had an hour wait, etc. We tried on three seperate occassions to dine out (but I lack patience when I'm hungry) and ultimately gave up trying. Our hotel had a small restaurant so we ordered salads a few times there to supplement all our in-room cooking. (We also had great success finding big, beautiful salads at the ski resorts. Most also had vegan burgers).

Park City does have a Whole Foods Market, however.

Next... Jackson Hole!

I'm most proud of this salad find!

Here's the story: I walked into a Roadhouse in Wyoming. The special of the day was bone marrow (I'm really not joking). I was sure this place would finally defeat me. Nope. They had an "Ebony & Ivory" salad on the menu that was not only plant-based, but oil-free. I nearly died. (And it was so delicious I went back the very next day!) Local raw greens, quinoa, lentils, dried apricots and cashews (I ordered it without cashews and the peanut dressing). Amazing!

Although their menu changes seasonally, our friendly waiter told me they always have a few vegetarian options and at least a vegan salad, if not other vegan-friendly dishes. (I was sad to hear we'd missed the vegan enchiladas the previous season).

I also found this gem at a gas station in Wyoming. We'd been driving for over two hours (from ...
