Oh Adventures in Veganism – Where do I start?! Some might look at this section as where we put all the not-so-food-related* posts and topics that didn’t fit in anywhere else – the odds and ends or X-files if you will. But really this is where we share some of our favorite travel, activism and nerding-out tips, rants and sentimentally gushing reviews.
When Dan and I first met, we were traveling campaigners for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Both of us were rarely in the office and traveled around the US and sometimes the world doing what we could to raise awareness for animals were being mistreated by fast food companies and circuses. Not unlike those stories of war correspondents in Spain in the 1930s, all of us campaigners would go out during the week to fight the good fight and return on the weekends to drink too much on patios and share anecdotes from the road. I like to remember those Saturday nights as a modren day reincarnation of Hemingway and Gellhorn… with less scotch and perhaps more bickering. These days, we travel more for fun and visit more exotic locations. You can see the photos of where we’ve been, what we ate while we were there and links to what recipes we’ve veganized from cookbooks we collected on our travels on The Postcards Page.
You can find photos and write ups of vegan friendly eateries all over the world on our Restaurants page as well as links to vegan city guides for some of our favorite places.
Who doesn’t love book clubs? Just kidding. We love to read, talk about what we’re reading and hear from you about what you’re reading. On our Nerdery page you can see what’s firing up our kindles right now and sometimes get updates on our favorite Xbox or board game we’ve become obsessed with.
Before we were bloggers, we were activists. This is where our hearts are at. On our Action Center page, you can find links to groups we support and what campaigns they’re working on now. We hope you’ll take a look. Really there’s no pressure. Promise.
* Much like those who believe everything is political – I find it hard to find topics that aren’t in one way or another food related.
