Eating Out – Airport Food

The flight ended up being four hours late. The plane itself was three hours late and then once we boarded, there were issues on the tarmac and we hung out there on the plane for another period of time. The original plan was to get to Huntington Beach after the airport and head straight to […]

Eating Out: Viva Las Vegas

In late May, I took a trip with my mother to Las Vegas.  The purpose of this trip was to, well, have fun. We took two bus trips, one to Bryce Canyon and one to Death Valley. On the day between these two epic trips, we hung around Las Vegas. My mother had seen an […]

Vegan Milk

Vegan Milk Choices

Vegan Milk presents us with a lot of choices, and the different flavors and formats gives you a lot of choices.  This chart from Vegan Street’s Facebook page shows the variety. I move between different types of vegan milks. Was drinking a lot of coconut milk until I realized what a high calorie count it […]

Rubio's vegetable salad

Eating Out: Rubio’s

A very unfortunate evening.  Rubio’s describes itself as  “coastal inspired Mexican food”. OK, that’s fine. The person I was going with wanted to try it and I am totally willing to make veganism work anywhere and everywhere. And generally I do.  And so far I have – at every place except Rubio’s.  Now, I did not expect […]

Eating Out: The Airport

Airports can be the absolutely worse place to find any sort of food. Awful. They are, however, improving.  In the Long Beach airport, the waiting area has lots of charging stations for electronic devices and a really nice food court.  I have gotten a great vegan burger there, plus they have other choices.  When I […]

Eating Out: Salad for Dinner

My friend Paul is the one who introduced me to veganism.  I had heard of it, but the thought of eating vegan seemed 1) ridiculous and 2) impossible. But at about the time he took me under his wing, I was ready for a life change.  He was such a good cook that eating vegan […]

Eating Out: Thai Style

Had the opportunity to have dinner with some good friends the other evening. We decided to go Thai.  What a great job they did with the food and the presentation.  We all had the golden tofu appetizer with sweet and sour sauce, cashew nuts, and crispy basil. For the main course, I had the shredded green […]

Vietnamese Crispy tofu

Eating Out: Vietnamese Crispy Tofu

Vegan eating is pretty easy if you like Asian food. I recently went to a Vietnamese restaurant and ordered the crispy tofu. Outrageously good.  Note – there is a tendency to add fish sauce to many of the sauces that are served in Asian restaurants.  You can always ask the waiter to substitute a sauce or […]

Eating Out: Vegan Mongolian BBQ

Vegan Mongolian BBQ? How is this possible? Was coming back with my honey from the snow and it had been a long – but fun – trip. It had also turned into a hungry trip and we found ourselves in the dark, in an unfamiliar town, with only our GPS. We were in the mood […]

Vegan lunch plate at SHED

Eating Out: My Vegan Lunch at SHED in Healdsburg

I had the pleasure of spending the day with my sister in law.  We started off in the Healdsburg countryside in the Dry Creek area. We visited the Quivira Winery where she tasted wine and I wandered their biodynamic vegetable garden. We were both in heaven. Afterwards, we went to SHED in downtown Healdsburg. I […]
