Vegan Bali – What I Ate During A Week in Ubud

Vegan Bali, I've been following pictures of amazing-looking food for ages. Even so, I cut Bali out of my itinerary at first. There is just so much hype, and this contrarian can't handle it. Then I realized it would cost be the same in flights to stop over in Bali on...

Melbourne is Vegan Junkfood Heaven – A Semi-Guide

I spent three weeks in Melbourne in February 2018 and let me tell you, vegan Melbourne is on POINT. Especially the vegan junk food. I'm not a clean eating kinda person by any means, but after three weeks even I was craving salads. Not to say there isn't good healthy...

I got in touch with my inner hippy in Pai – Vegan Pai Guide

I loved Pai. Like, really really loved Pai. I actually think some of my best food in Thailand so far was from there, hence this vegan Pai guide. Now, people love or hate it, and most people visiting Chiang Mai seem to end up there at some point. I think how you find...

Vegan Chiang Mai Guide

Vegan Chiang Mai? I got you covered. I spent almost 2 months in Chiang Mai in January - February 2018, and I LOVED it so much I came back again in May. I wasn't sure if it would live up to the hype, but ultimately it did. My first month I wasn't sure, but by the...

Vegan in Bangkok, Thailand

Hellooooo vegan Bangkok! I've been in Thailand since January 4th, and my first stop was Bangkok to chill for a few days and get over my jetlag! I've been stalking all the vegan bloggers' Thailand posts for aaaaages, so it was exciting to finally get over there myself...

The Noms are Back!

Oh hey. It's been awhile. I know I've neglected the blog over the last months, but I have good news...I am BACK! Some big life changes are afoot. I've quit my job, sublet my flat and bought a ticket to Thailand, where I am now. I'll be working on switching over to...

Vegan in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain

From April 1-10 I attended the Digital Nomad Girls Retreat in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, which is a Spanish island off the coast of Africa. It's pretty much perfect weather all the time. It was warm enough to swim in April, without being too hot. In all honesty, before...

Get Shit Done: Cafes in Berlin with Wifi and Vegan Options

So, updates! I switched to part-time in December and now work 30 hours per week and have Fridays off. I'm trying to learn to code, so every Friday I've been parking myself in some cafe to work on the freecodecamp.com curriculum. This means I've been going in search of...

Did you know this page started out as a vegan food blog? Here’s some of my vegan recipe posts. You can check out my Vegan Recipe Index, or my Readers’ Favorites too.

Cookie Baking Party!

First off, I discovered the BEST sugar cookie recipe EVER from Vegan MoFo. I've seriously made it 5 or so times since I found it and and holycrap. Delish. One of the only traditions we had each year growing up was a sugar cookie making party in December where all our...

Pizza!

A bit of a delay due to moving back into school and all that, but here I am with the first of not one, but two posts! First, some pizza! Okay, so all I did for this one was chop up the veggies and grate the "cheese", but it came out so well! I think I finally mastered...

Sauerkraut, Gnocchi and Veggie Sausage Stirfry

Look what Germany has done to me! I cannot get enough sauerkraut. This seems like some ridiculous combination that would only make sense if you were pregnant (which I am definitely not), but it seems to make total sense in my current head space. It's very simple:...

Famous Tofu Scramble

When I tried tofu scramble for the first time, it was chunky and bland, resembling the large uncooked and "marinated" slices of tofu my dining hall likes to serve as food. Now that I'm older and wiser, I must say my scramble has come a long way too. I've finally got...

Red Quinoa Taco Meat (Gluten-free)

Does anyone else have the problem where they hoard random food items and then end up with a cabinet full of random things and nothing they actually want to eat at that moment? I do it all the time and then I end up with tons of obscure ingredients I don't know what to...

Vegan Rhubarb Lemon Bars

Wow, it's been awhile! Luckily I'm back with a doozy of a post and something pretty, too! You need pink foods for Spring, right?! Definitely. I've been oogling a lot of vegan lemon bar recipes online lately and though I've, in fact, never eaten a lemon bar, I decided...

Fresh Ginger Lemon “Honey” Tea

Vegan MoFo Day #12 We'll leave the debate about honey elsewhere, but this tea is simple and delicious no matter what sweetner you use. Almost too simple to blog about, this got me through last winters' cold season. I dug these pictures out from the depths, having...

Chocolate Coffee (Almost Raw) Dessert Cups

I have about 239495358 pounds of raw cashews in my kitchen so I've been doing anything I can to use them in just about everything. These were really good and pretty filling due to all the nuts. Definitely satisfied my dessert craving without that much sugar,...

Cheaters’ Miso Soup & Homemade Mushroom Broth

Okay, so this doesn't involve any formal dashi or kombu or seaweed of any sort. The tofu was fried and there was kale and noodles, but damn, you haters can hate because this shizz was tasty. And easy! And did not involve buying new ingredients, which would be pretty...

Ode to Vegan Cherry Pie Oatmeal

Got this beauty at the Pullman Hotel in Dubai, where my colleagues are staying. The first breakfast I had there was a bit lackluster, except for this Pakistani-style Aloo Ghobi that was delicious (yes, for breakfast). After the disappointment with the first...

Balcony Garden Bounty and My Fresh Smoked Tofu Urban Gardening Salad

Vegan MoFo Day #1! Summer is almost over, but let's not speak about that. I thought I'd use the first day of MoFo to take advantage of the new September MoFo time....no Thanksgiving food here! It's not cold and miserable yet and there is still stuff growing! On my...

Vegan Hungarian Goulash

Excuse the bad picture, but this was delicious. While I was in Budapest a couple weeks ago, a new friend I met through Couchsurfing invited me over to attempt a vegan goulash. Everyone was skeptical, but I think we pulled it off! There was a lot of paprika involved....

Last Day of Vegan Mofo 2016

I kinda fell off the Vegan MoFo bandwagon, oops. Lots has happened since my last post! The US took a sharp turn towards imploding (election), Thanksgiving happened, my blender started spitting out metal shards, I bought vegan camembert mold cultures, attended my first...
