Vegan Mofo The End: Saskatoon, SK – The Land of the Living Skies. aka, The Passage way to Elsewhere.

Once upon a time I lived in Saskatoon, SK so I’m ending MoFo where I began writing this blog. Parts of me hated living there (the parts that don’t like to be cold) and parts of me loved it (the parts of me that loved finding fun stuff to do against all odds). People tend […]

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 […]

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: 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 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 […]

Vegan MoFo: 30 Days of Vegan Travel – Day Four – Orlando, FL – The City Beautiful – In honor of the shuttle launch

Well, the Space Shuttle Discovery Mission STS 133 was going to launch today from Kennedy Space Center, but was pushed back to Friday due to weather conditions. I’ve always wanted to see a shuttle launch, but I haven’t had the opportunity, so in fantasy internet vacation land I’m pretending to be there. Orlando, FL is […]

Vegan MoFo: 30 Days of Vegan Travel – Jour Trois – New Orleans, Louisiana – Eating Vegan in the Big Easy.

First of all, I want to say that the majority of the pictures in this blog post were not taken by me (hence why they have names other than MeShell on them.) They are taken from the pool of creative commons license photos on flickr. If one of these is yours and you don’t want […]
