Another year, another Mardi Gras. Our weekend was filled with fun, laughter, great friends, great food, and lots of beads. The energy around this event in NOLA is something I wish for everyone to experience at least once in their life. So how’d I do with food? Pretty good I think.

You may find it strange for a vegan blog to be thanking a national steakhouse chain but its not a typo. Like many vegans I am alone in my group of friends and family so sometimes going out with a group can be a challenge. I’ve been out where my only option was a salad,… Continue reading Thank you, Capital Grill?
