Vegetarianism in France?
Hiya, I'm going to France in June (Paris) with my school, is it possible to last 4 days in France as a vegetarian? Also how will I persuade teachers that I'll be fine? They don't know yet but my mum is worried that I'll starve, so the teachers might think so too! Thank you =D

Good Vegan restaurants in Chicago?
I'm planning a trip to Chicago with a friend for sometime in May. However, I'm a vegan and I've never been to Chicago and would really like to experience some of its great vegan cuisine. Do any of you have suggestions? Any favorites? Also, are there any vegan food carts around? I doubt there are, but we're looking to save a lot of time so would prefer some quick options as well.

Vegan Traveling in Europe
I have lived all over Europe, but never really just bummed it. I am taking my kids (13 and 9) for 2 months in the summer, we are planning on winging it and following our bliss, meaning no kitchen to prepare foods. I am wondering about the idea of being flexitarian when we travel, as getting all of the healthy fats, nutrition can be so challenging on the road. I am seeking suggestions, ideas and comments about this, would you go out of the vegan lifestyle for nutrition when traveling, choosing the next best option (ie, raw cheese, pastured eggs, etc), as finding avocados for breakfast will be a challenge in northern Europe. We have been vegan for almost 7 years. Thank you for all suggestions, ideas, etc!

The Foods and Sweets of Turkey.
Most dishes in Turkey start with a vegetarian base and meat is mostly added as an afterthought. Turkish cuisine mostly relies on strong flavors, and it utilizes variety of spices and sauces in every dish. A dried black pepper is one of the most common of the spices used. The strong flavors are complemented with both rich and bright generally by topping the dish with yogurt ro curd and lemon. With aromatic appetizers and soups to savory main courses, it’s easy to find something authentic and delicious in Turkey. And don’t forget to take the opportunity to try one of the many tasty Turkish sweets for dessert. Simit, a ring-shaped bread covered with sesame seeds, Zeytinyagli Dolma a grape leaves stuffed with rice that has been seasoned with olive oil and herbs. Freshly Squeezed Pomegranate Juice are another thirst reliefer. Lokum and Helva are others. It won't be wrong to say that it is one of the best eating vacation one can have.

In April I will be traveling to Quebec with my school to study French. I am a bit wary though because we are all staying with different host families and I am not sure if they can accommodate my vegan diet. I do not want to be demanding or ungrateful for the food they are able to provide me, but I still want to eat as vegan as possible on this trip.

Happy Cow GPS Feature
I wanted to suggest a feature for Happy Cow and so am posting to see what people thing. I'll be traveling to Europe and plan to use a GPS to find my way around the city since I don't have need of a smart phone to justify their costs. At least for the Garmin GPS it's quite simple to load new points of interest (POIs), like restaurants, etc. Would you find it useful if Happy Cow could download search results into a file that can be loaded onto a Garmin?
It should be pretty simple to program. It's just a 3 or 4 column CSV file.
I believe Google Maps might also be able to create a custom map with a CSV file upload. Etc. Any other uses you can think of for this? If you are a GPS user, is that something you'd find useful?

Sea cruise from/to Sydney
I an a vegan who lives in Sydney, Australia, and would like to take a sea cruise that begins and returns there, or involves only one flight. Can anyone recommend a cruise where they know how to cater for vegans? It would also be good if they understood the concept of vegan wines. Ideally the cruise would be for about two weeks, visiting destinations in Asia or the Pacific.

Has anyone had this experience? It was the first time for me. I was reading the menu outside a very popular beachfront restaurant, and a maitre'd came up to me and asked if I'd like any help. I explained that I was looking to see if there was any vegan or vegetarian options, and she said with a big smile - "Yes!" and then told me they had a gluten free menu. Every dish on the menu had animal products, so I said that vegan meant nothing dead from an animal or related to an animal's body - no meat, dairy, eggs - so she repeated that they had a gluten free menu, and I repeated myself about being vegan!
Needless to say we didn't dine there. I had hoped that the difference between gluten free and vegan/vegetarian would be more commonplace in a high tourist area.

Israelis Sway Domino's To Make Vegan Pizza
In the U.S., Big Pizza is locked in a battle that's as much a testament to gluttony as it is to food science: How much cheese can you possibly stuff inside of wheat dough?
Earlier this year, Pizza Hut took it to the next level with the Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza: a regular pizza ringed with "pockets" oozing a five-cheese blend. By way of explanation of its existence, Pizza Hut's head chef told Yahoo, "Consumers always want more cheese."
But in Israel, apparently, they don't.
There, the cheese is being voted off the pizza, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported this week. It seems a passionate vegan lobby clamored so loudly for dairy-free pizza that Domino's had to acquiesce. The pizza chain's stores in Israel are now offering a family-size pizza with vegetables and a soy-based topping for about $20.
It all started with a Facebook campaign led by Vegan Friendly, a group that promotes the vegan lifestyle in Israel. Vegan Friendly claims to have a virtual community of 30,000 vegans in Israel, and has stamped hundreds of stores and restaurants with its vegan-friendly seal. The vegans wanted pizza, and they weren't going to stop until they got it.
Americans eat about 31 pounds of cheese per person each year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
"Israel is leading the vegan revolution around the world, and this is another indication," Omri Paz, the director of Vegan Friendly, told Haaretz's Dafna Arad. He said that with the new pizza on the menu, vegans could order from the chain "without pangs of conscience."
Domino's has 10,000 locations in more than 70 countries, including 50 branches in Israel.
We were curious whether the Israeli vegan pizza might inspire something similar on stateside menus. Not so much.
"We'll be paying attention to [the vegan pizza in Israel], but it's not something we're working on here in the U.S.," Domino's spokesman Tim McIntyre tells The Salt.
In the meantime, Domino's will continue selling Wisconsin 6 Cheese Pizza and the Stuffed Cheesy Bread to cater to the cheeseheads. (Americans consumed about 34 pounds of cheese per person in 2012, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which some argue is a bit too much.)
Still, vegans or people who may simply want a lighter pizza may have more pizza options in the near future. The Wall Street Journal reports that Chipotle is getting into the choose-your-own-topping pizza business, with a new concept in Denver called Pizzeria Locale it helped finance.
