Vegan MoFo: Vegan Vacation in Victoria, BC

A couple of my favourite people are in Victoria, British Columbia (on Vancouver Island) on a short visit, and since I had spent a few months at UVic last summer, they asked me for suggestions for vegan places to go eat while they are there. I haven’t really decided what my favourite thing is, to visit places for […]

Vegan Mofo Staycation three! What else can you give me Toronto?

I missed writing in here. I missed you blog. And I missed YOU, whoever you are. Last week was a busy week, as indicated by my absence. My food choices were atrocious and I don’t even want to talk about it (though I can tell you I relied heavily on peanut butter, cho dang tofu, […]

Montreal, Quebec – La Belle Province – Vegan Mofo: 30 days of vegan travel: Day 13

I haven’t been to Montreal in a few years, but I spent a month or so there in the summer of 2008 and remember it fondly. Had I not been in university at the time, I would have moved there. It had a vibrant nightlife and cultural community, the food and people were lovely, the […]

Staycation Weekend: Vegan MoFo Day 11&12

Oh the weekend. It couldn’t come soon enough.  Normally, they don’t mean anything to me, because I have other things I need to be doing, but this week I was ready for it to be Saturday…. on Tuesday. And I got some much needed downtime. I introduced an omnivore to Vegetarian Haven (17 Baldwin St, […]

Vegan MoFo: 30 Days of Vegan Travel – Day Ten – Warsaw, Poland – Wegańska Warszawa

Well I’ve been slacking on this whole MoFo thing, I’ve offered up enough excuses in my last post, so it’s time to just get on with it. 🙂 I’m hoping to get back my MoFo mojo. I’m jumping across the sea today. It’s just a short (well, okay, it’s short to a girl who takes […]

Vegan MoFo: Biting off more than I can chew this week.

Whelp. I’ve slacked off on my posting lately. Somehow two jobs seemed like a good idea at the time. 🙂 What’s your favorite spice or spice blend? I like mixing my own blend of whatever, but I think if it was down to deciding on one, it would be cinnamon. Perfect for both savory and […]

Vegan MoFo: 30 Days of Vegan Travel – Day Ate – Washington, DC – Looking for The American Experience

This last summer I met a girl from France, while I was in San Francisco. She was au pairing in Washington, DC and we got to talking about travelling. She told me that the museums in DC were free. See, this is why I love hostels, I never would have met this random girl over […]

Vegan MoFo: 30 Days of Vegan Travel – Day Seven – Staycation weekend – Urban Herbivore

This weekend was a nice little break, today it’s back to the grindstone. I finally tried a chimichuri sandwich at Urban Herbivore, and after all that wait, it was… okay. The moment the sad little sandwich was passed over to me in the paper box, I felt sad that I didn’t get a quinoa bowl. […]

Vegan MoFo: 30 Days of Vegan Travel – Day 6 – Staycation – in Toronto, Ontario

Well. I said I wasn’t going anywhere this weekend, and I was serious. On the bright side, the weekends are a beautiful time to enjoy the city I do live in. So what happens in Toronto on a Saturday? One of my favourite things in the city, the St. Lawrence Market! While other farmers markets […]

Vegan MoFo: 30 Days of Vegan Travel – Day 5 – Charleston, SC – The Holy City

Today I’m feeling like taking a vacation somewhere lowkey, warm and relaxing, but still with a rich history and decent arts community. So I decided on Charleston, South Carolina. It is a cloudy 3C (37F) in Toronto this morning and Charleston is much warmer. I want to be somewhere where I can say “it’s not […]
