Vegan on the Go: Eating Vegan in Italy (& Monaco)
Not only did I escape death by starvation in Italy (quite the opposite in most places, actually) I was pleasantly surprised by some of the offerings and blown away by others.
Label Reading 101 for Vegans
Reading labels is serious business if you’re vegan. Most of you already know that being vegan means avoiding all animal by-products. This includes meat, poultry, dairy, eggs, seafood or shellfish, and, for some of us, bee products. If you’re like me – i.e. impatient and not good with small fonts – you might find it easier to use an app OR memorize some red flag ingredients to be on the lookout for while you’re shopping.

7 Things I Learned About Piggies at Better Piggies Rescue
The ‘Better Piggies Rescue’ is a non-profit pig rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption organization. Danielle, the owner of the impeccably kept facility, compares it to having two full-time jobs – if, at one of those jobs, your boss woke up screaming to be fed at 2am. Luckily, her neighbors in the far north corner of Phoenix, just a stone’s throw from Cave Creek don’t seem to mind. Most of them own livestock themselves and know how it goes. Danielle manages the 14+ hour days and never ending workload with lots of humor – her rescues sport names like Picasso (a paint can loving Lothario), Busta (as in Rhymes), Milkshake and Beyonce…
