Vegan Eats in Tulum

This post is a little late...ok, a lot late but better late than never right? Especially when there is delicious food that needs to be shared. In January, my husband and I were in Tulum, Mexico for a little birthday getaway which coincided with Tulum Vegan Fest.  This was my first time attending a vegfest outside of the U.S. which was so fun!  It was also my first time in Tulum which was a win-win! One of our first stops was at The Real Coconut which was situated right on the beach.  A beautiful view and beautiful food, you can't ask for...

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,...

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...

My Vegan Green Chef Experience

My sister gave me a coupon good for one free week of Green Chef and I was thrilled to learn they have vegan options...so it was pretty much a no-brainer to give it a shot!  If you are unfamiliar with Green Chef, it is a subscription service that delivers organic ingredients and chef-created recipes to your doorstep...chef not included so it's up to you to make the recipes come to life! I received ingredients for 3 meals (serving size was for 2 people, they were definitely generous serving sizes.  I had leftovers of all 3 meals) and everything was packaged neatly in a...

Ask A Vegan Chef

 While scrolling through Instagram, I'm always in awe of the beautifully plated, drool-worthy vegan dishes people showcase.  And one particular account included in my admiration is Insatiable Vegan.  Just take a look at this: Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sammie  (kale, pesto, spinach, Riverdel cheese, avocado and fakin) Or this... Salted Chocolate Avocado Pudding (almond caramel, coconut whipped cream) I had the pleasure to interview Breck Oxford,  founder of Insatiable Vegan and discussed where she finds inspiration for her culinary creations, advice for any new vegans or vegan-curious folks out there, some of her favorite foods to work with and more!  Breck...
