2015 Best Nine on Instagram

Well, I see my theme loud and clear-FOOD!
Delicious, unique, progressive dishes from some of my favorite locations and books!

A fully loaded burger from @cafegratitude
A feast of new dishes from the revamped @welovemcafe
A literal donut cake from @donutfriend
My favorite sandwich-Puerco from @organixla
My own Klean-Slate Kitchen Greens on Greens Wrap
Savory Corn Cakes from @vegetable.la
Buddha Spring Rolls from @vestationkitchen
A Build-Your-Own Plate from one of my favorite specialty markets @erewhonmarket
and the two most recent editions to my shelves @miyokoschinner The Homemade Vegan Pantry and @jonimarienewman The Complete Guide to Even More Vegan Food Substitutes.

Of course, this year has been phenomenally progressive in the vegan department, but it has also exceeded my expectations in getting to know so many wonderful individuals I now call friends.

Lots of love, lots of compassion and lots of heart is what I will bring with me into 2016 along with pushing the limits and forgetting the boundaries.

Happy New Years!

Portland Vegan Beer & Food Festival

When the show goes on the road, you either stay behind and watch forlornly at all the pictures being posted OR you book a flight and get your butt to Portland! The Vegan Power Rangers Crew and I loaded up and shipped out.

Some of the crew were even able to make it a few days ahead and sadly, I became the one watching forlornly at their posts; wishing I had bought a ticket for a day earlier. 

With that being said, I managed to push forward and make it one of the best damn Traveling Vegan trips to date
