‘Italian’ Vegan Pasta Salad
I love carbs. LOVE THEM. When I decided to become vegan and realized I could quit my near 20-year pasta and bread embargo I was overjoyed. I mean, the animals get to live and now I do too. It’s a win-win! This pasta salad is a combination of all the things I love. It’s quick. You can easily make enough to feed an army. It’s great as leftovers. And it can be enjoyed hot or cold in both reasonable and ridiculously large quantities. Feel free to switch up the ingredients and spices to put your own spin on it. I call this version ‘Italian’ because that’s where I took most…
Vegan on the Go: Eating Vegan in Kaua’i
I’ve wanted to visit Kaua’i since high school, and that desire only intensified after as my career in travel marketing afforded me the chance to learn more about the island.

A key component of my transition to veganism has been my love of cooking. Finding alternatives and seeing the possibility in ingredients was easy for me because I was already used to looking at them that way. But on the road, a B ain’t got a kitchen and stress of near-constant travel will make it want to drown your sorrows deep in a family size bag…
Confession: I’ve been drinking. In fact, I’m drinking right now. WATERMELON juice that is! It’s like 7:30 in the morning and I’m not in Mexico so how dare you assume I might be consuming alcohol? We’re going to be hitting the beach hard for the next 3 weeks. Malibu. Coronado. Cabo. In anticipation of all the tummy exposure, I’ve committed to 2-a-days until we leave (better late than never, amirite??). So, wtf does watermelon have to do with this?
