While in Cali, I was traveling with a few friends and we wanted to go out for pizza. Knowing that veganized pizza is often a hit, I whipped…

Chill Vibes And Vegan Rolled Ice Cream

El Paso, Texas is home to a growing selection of little coffee and tea shops with big personalities. My personal favorite is Tippi Teas, a cozy space where happy eaters can chill out over warm tea lattes and cool vegan rolled ice cream. I visited their Kern location during my stay in the Lone Star State to take a taste. Located at the heart of University of Texas at El…

Checking Out The Rising Vegan Scene In Lima

Lima, Peru is gorgeous. Situated right by the ocean, you can find yourself in the bustling city center one minute and walking along sky high sea cliffs the next, observing hundreds of paragliders soaring above as they fly by, often a little bit too close for comfort. However, what I didn’t expect to find in downtown Lima was a hip vegan restaurant serving up some of the best food that…

VekoLogisch in Amsterdam

While it might just sound like a funny word, “squatting” is a fascinating sub-culture of The Netherlands since the 80’s. In the past, vacant buildings could legally be inhabited by basically anyone that felt like claiming them as their own. This movement was started by young people in Holland, unable to find or afford other housing options. They’d basically just walk into an abandoned building and set up shop. And…

A Veg Village In Thailand

I heard about it the way one might hear about secret caves, fountains of youth, lost civilizations — through the veg grapevine. I had already visited the vegetarian cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh in India, having thoroughly enjoyed myself there while basking in the delicious compassion of vegetarianism, so I knew I had to go to Ban Phra Baht Huay Tom while in Thailand. About two and a half hours…

Feeling Hungry In Hungary? Try Napfényes Restaurant

In Budapest, Hungary, visitors can feast their eyes on miles of magnificent historic architecture, and when they’ve hit their limit on sightseeing, traditional Hungarian cuisine is around every corner. The sights and smells of these meat-heavy feastful foods, however, may offer little solstice to vegans or vegetarians. Thankfully, there is a growing counter culture cuisine movement that caters to plant-based tastes. My favorite of these up-and-coming choices is Napfényes Restaurant…

Vegan Food Under A Bridge

As they say in real estate: Location, Location, Location. While touring around London, I passed by a vegan café in an unlikely place; right under a rail station. Quaintly placed below the station’s bridge, The Fields Beneath is a phenomenal little spot to enjoy a coffee or latte and watch the world pass by. I brought a non-vegan friend along with me to share in the experience (and so that…
