Vegan in DC Hey veg family! I've tried a bunch of vegan restaurants in the DMV area the last 2 years living here see which ones here: https://lookingupatthesamestars.com/2017/04/23/vegan-in-dc/ However, I'm about to move away :( and I want to try some new places! Does anyone have any recommendations? You can see in my post above which places I've already been. Thank you!! Post Date: 05/11/17, Replies: 1 05/11/17 1

Gran Canaria vegan food items Hi When I was on holiday in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria I found some vegan foods which I thought might be handy for others to know about. First one is a soy milk of the brand "Vive Soy" which is found in SPAR. I only tried the one in a blue carton which was vanilla flavored. Even the small grocery stores had this brand, but when I went to a bigger SPAR, they had 5-6 different kinds of plant milk, even "Oatly" and "Alpro". Second are veggie burgers of the brand "Sojasun". They come in a box of two, and isn't too expensive. They taste quite good, a bit of curry, and I like the fact that they are not like the fake meat which tries really hard to taste like meat. I found them in a bigger SPAR in the frigde section next to sausages & other meaty stuff. Last one is a hummus which is sooo good! Ate it every day since I found it. The brand is "Argal Cocina" and I found it next to the cheeses. Definately worth a try! (The avocados in Gran Canaria are amazing as well - and huge!) Hope you found this helpful.

Horchata or chocolate in Palma does anyone know where to get horchata or chocolate a la Taza (best with churros) in Palma de Mallorca or are there Supermarkets that sell horchata? Post Date: 04/25/17, Replies: 0 04/25/17 0
Olive's, Funchal, Madeira The above restaurant offers vegan options, as advised by Happy Cow. My partner and I, both long term vegans, ate at the rooftop eatery recently. We ordered drinks, in my case a sumptuous cocktail, in Michael's red vegan wine, while we studied the menu. We opted for a main course apiece, both different, and to finish shared an apple and cinnamon crumble with mango sorbet. The food was freshly prepared and cooked and very good indeed. If you visit Funchal, don't miss out on the opportunity to have a meal at Olive's. It is centrally located and near the marina which it overlooks. Post Date: 04/20/17, Replies: 0 04/20/17 0

Visiting Osaka for 7 weeks Greetings I am staying in Osaka for 7 weeks starting late May, I've found a few places to eat and shop in the Kitahama area where I'll be staying, interested to hear about any "mustn't miss" restaurants or food markets. I'm staying in an apartment so I'm very interested in stocking up with food that's easy to prepare, organic if possible, and vegetarian. Any suggestions appreciated!

Cuba- Where to bring donations Some of the most rewarding moments on my recent Cuba trip was taking the time to donate to a few different places throughout Havana and Trinidad. We flew Southwest, so just used our extra bag allowing to bring a duffel bag of donations each. If you don't have a two bag allowance, you could always bring a carry on instead. There is not access to the same items we have here, so even dollar store items make a big difference. Clean out you closet of old clothes you no longer wear and visit a Dollar Tree. You will be so happy you did when you witness the gratitude. Since I had a hard time finding out about places to donate ahead of time, I wanted to share what I found. I'm posting on here because AniPlant and The Diana Project are for animal welfare and I really think vegans would enjoy helping these in particular I, also, recommend downloading the app maps.me ahead of time. If you download the map for Cuba, it'll be easier to locate these crossroads. Places In Havana: AniPlant Contact Person: Nora Garcia Perez (Spanish only) Cell: 05243 3789 Website: www.theaniplantproject.org Crossroads on map: Principe and Hospital Organizations to help protect animals are rare in Cuba. It can be heartbreaking to see malnourished, injured, or mange infected dogs on the street. This is why it was so meaningful to us to be able to donate and tour AniPlant’s facilities. They offer sterilization services to Cubans with pets for little to no cost and, also, to strays in an effort to reduce overpopulation. The modest operating room was very clean, however, they simply don't have access to all the supplies they need. The woman in charge was very very appreciative of any donations and took her time to show us around. Beware there are adorable dogs you may fall in love with and be very tempted to take home! When we were there, a few were already being prepared to be shipped overseas to other tourists who had fallen in love. What we donated: dry milk, cat/dog treats, anti fungal cream, antibiotic ointment, bandages, non adherent gauze pads, cat food bowls, and soap. Parroquia Ntra. Sra. de la Medalla Milagrosa Santos Suarez #336 esq. a Paz Santos Suarez, 10 de Octubre, C.P. 10500. Ciudad Habana Contact Person: Father Lusarreta (Spanish only) Tel: (53-7) 41-8449 Crossroads on map: Santos Suarez and Paz https://www.yahoo.com/news/popes-church-poor-alive-well-cuba-222413032.html?ref=gs This is a church located in south Havana where Father Lusarreta runs his charity La Milagrosa. He has many charitable initiatives to help the community such as a soup kitchen, “grandparents house”, food and clothing to single parents in need, center for residents with Down syndrome, etc. Overall, it just seems to be a very positive institution that is really trying to help the residents of the area. What we donated: clothing, feminine hygiene products, toothbrushes/toothpaste, soap, and combs. In Trinidad: The Diana Project Casa Munoz Jose Marti #401 e/ Fidel Claro y Santiago Escobar Trinidad, S.Spiritus, Cuba Contact Person: Julio Munoz (Spanish and English) Email: [email protected] Phone: +53 41993673 diana.trinidadphoto.com This was another organization to benefit the welfare of animals. Julio Munoz has many initiatives to educate horse owners about proper care and treatment. Unfortunately, again people simply do not have access to proper supplies and education about horse care which results in the premature death of many horses. Julio, with his wife, run Casa Munoz. Unfortunately, it was booked while we were in Trinidad but he still sat with us in the living room and talked about everything from life in Cuba to the struggles of changing people's minds about proper horse care. He is very funny and I recommend taking the time to talk to him. What we donated: anti parasite medicine, Horseman’s Dream Veterinary Cream, antibiotic ointment, antifungal cream, bandages, non adherent gauze pads, and soap. Casa de la Cultura Calle Zerquera 406 Tel (419) 4308 This is a culture center where local artists exhibit some of their work. It, also, is where many of the local children go. We were lucky enough to visit on a Saturday and witness a group of children working on their drawings. There was such love in the room. The instructor was kind and the children seemed genuinely happy. We gave them the rest of our donations but wished we had more art supplies to donate. What we donated: clothing, crayons, pens, pads of paper, toys, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and hair ties. Post Date: 04/15/17, Replies: 1 04/15/17 1

Fried spinach n cheese pies in Tonkawa, OK It was a pleasant surprise to find delicious vegetarian fried pies in Tonkawa, OK. Driving down from Des Moines to Houston, we expected some Indian vegetarian fare down south but didn't really expect anything in the midwest. But the Tonkawa, Oaklahoma fried pies right at a 35S exit were just excellent! Post Date: 03/19/17, Replies: 0 03/19/17 0
Vegan at sea I'm hoping to go sailing and the captain says we need to stock up for 3 weeks at sea - and he wants me to introduce him to veganism. So, no surviving on pasta and cornflakes! Thing is that I've always been a can't cook, won't cook kind of girl so am really hoping to get some help with ideas of ingredients and recipes. There are some well stocked health food stores and grocery stores nearby, so shouldn't have problems finding ingredients before setting sail, it's just that I know from experience that I buy all these goodies, then find a year later they're still sat in my cupboard unused - and I won't have internet access at sea. I'd be very grateful of any suggestions and guidance. Many thanks in anticipation! Post Date: 03/06/17, Replies: 3 03/06/17 3
Traveling Vegan Animal Rights Activist Hello everyone, I wanted to write an tell you all wanderlust about the wonderful experience I have been having traveling California on the 10 Billion Lives Tour. It is a vegan outreach program in which myself and my travel partner, Grace, travel across an area of the U.S. with a pay-per-view program that exposes the farm industry. We are currently focused on visiting college campuses, although during the summer, one of our touring groups switches to traveling with Warped Tour. It's been a wonderful opportunity to engage college students, interested and unaware alike, in the practices of the farm industry. After showing students our 4 minute video - which can be found at www.10billionlives.com - on one of our mobile kiosks, we discuss with them options to reduce meat and dairy in their lives. 80% of these students pledge to reduce meat and dairy in their life. It has been fun meeting so many interested students, visiting new areas of the country I have never seen, and living in a van. F.A.R.M. is a wonderful organization, and if you are interested in pursuing a Tour Operator position with them - check out the 10 Billion Lives site - and read more about our trip on my site - NY Nomads Post Date: 02/10/17, Replies: 0 02/10/17 0

Vegan Hi all, I joined here because it seems to be the most active forum. I've only been vegan for about four months, but it's the best life change I've made. I feel physically and mentally healthier, and it feels great knowing that every meal I eat contributes to the ending of this world. I'm very lucky to live in a very [url="www.vegjauntsandjourneys.com/"]vegan-friendly[/url]city and community as well, it's been a great influence for persuading others into becoming "www.vegjauntsandjourneys.com/">veganl as well. I hope to meet more people and gain a little more knowledge here! Post Date: 12/12/16, Replies: 2 12/12/16 2

Vegan cuisine in Zagreb, Croatia! My Fiance and I were really happy to see that it was possible to eat vegan in Croatia, and still enjoy the local cuisine. To be honest, the Croatians do cook meat heavy - however, there are so many things they do offer and make really delicious that we were never put out. Salads are incredible there. There are a lot of 'side dishes' that are offered in most restaurants that are incredible. In our opinion, it was very do-able and enjoyable. Hope that helps!
