My Vegan Story

My Vegan Story

With it being Veganuary right now, I've seen a lot of people taking the challenge which is so exciting!  If you're unfamiliar with Veganuary- it is an organization started in the UK that encourages (and helps!) people to go vegan for the month of January.  And this probably goes without saying that even when it's not January, you can still take a 30 Day vegan pledge! :)  During this month, I have also seen vegan YouTubers share their experiences on living a vegan lifestyle which is awesome.  It has inspired me to share my vegan story. A little backstory, when I was...

Vegan Eats in Costa Rica

What's better than waking up to the sound of howler monkeys outside your window?  Well...I could think of other things since they legit sound like dinosaurs or something from a horror movie but they are so cute and hey, we were in their environment after all.  Howl away monkey friends! My husband was turning the big 3-0 this year so what better way to celebrate than with a somewhat impromptu trip to Costa Rica.  We've heard that Costa Rica is very vegan-friendly so we were excited to do some exploring.  And let me tell you, we were not disappointed.  Be warned,...

A Mini Vegan Getaway in NorCal

Recently, my husband and I set-off for a little road trip to Northern California to visit family.  While up there, we were able to check out a couple of vegan restaurants we had never been before and of course there may have been a brewery (or two) thrown in! According to a recent Thrillist article, they named Santa Cruz as the hippiest city in California so naturally, I wanted to check it out because usually hippie=vegan food galore.  After what felt like a year of driving, we finally arrived in Santa Cruz...hungry and a little cranky.  Thanks to Happy Cow app...

Leilani Farm Sanctuary: A Paradise for Animals...in Paradise!

During a recent trip to Maui for a wedding, I thought it would be a good opportunity to seek out a local farm sanctuary to visit.  When possible, I would love to donate to sanctuaries I have personally visited.  Leilani Farm Sanctuary sits on a beautiful, eight-acre farm in Haiku, HI.  I mean, just look at this entrance! Leilani Farm Sanctuary is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that provides shelter and care to rescued animals.  The sanctuary is home to a variety of animals including donkeys, goats, cats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys and deer.  Most of their animals were once abused, neglected...
