Teaching Tuesday: Traveling With A Pressure Cooker Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Cooking101 Travel

As you may have heard, I have a new book coming out this May, The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living.

Traveling is a huge part of my life and I have a huge — ginormous! — section about traveling in my new book The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living. Everything you ever need or want to know about traveling while plant-based is covered in detail in the book!

It also details how I cook and travel with my pressure cooker ...

A Vegan Taste of Park City, Utah; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Big Sky, Montana Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

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 ...

A Vegan Taste of Switzerland (and Belgium) -- pics from my trip! Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

As you may know from Facebook, I've been on holiday in Europe for the past week or so. I've been sharing some pics there, but here's a good wrap-up post of my trip so far (I'll do another part 2 post once I'm back in the States).

After almost 24 hours of travel time (a 13-hour flight, a 4-hour train ride (and almost 12 hour time difference) I made it to Switzerland on Wednesday (Dec ...

A Vegan Taste of Boston and My trip to the World Series! Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

Scott and I lived in Boston for a little less than four years while I attended law school. (We've been back to Boston several times -- so if you're looking for places to eat, try the search bar on the blog -- type "boston" and you'll find all my previous trip posts). 

I was fortunate to live there in both 2004 and 2007, and one of our apartments literally backed up to Fenway park. If I went on ...

My Trip to Athens, Ohio (Herbie in the Hills!) Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Travel

Last weekend I went to Athens, OH for a "Herbivore in the Hills" event.

*If you'd to purchase one of these shirts (the proceeds help support a program that brings the plant-based diet to the local Athens community), please email athenschip(at)gmail(dot)com).

I had a blast! Athens was beautiful, everyone was awesome, and I met so many Herbies!! 

*Buckeyes! Now I get what they mean by the "Buckeye state," though I have to say, the ...
