It’s Everywhere Now…

When I first went veggie back in early ’91, it was tough to find good vegan food…especially on the road.  But now, it’s a whole different ballgame.  Check out a few random shots from some recent travels this summer.  (Yes, my camera and/or iPhone is always with me and, yes, I love to take pictures of certain meals.)

Dinner with the Feehery’s, my long-time friends in Houston:


This feast featured three different kinds of hummus, with grilled veggies and avocado, which we stuffed into a pita, like a burrito. Killer! (I know everyone always associates Texas with barbeque.  But on this occasion, the only thing the “pit” was used for was veggies…)

A sight I wasn’t expecting to see;


At a grocery store in a St. Louis suburb, there was this huge display for meat substitutes (like soy burgers, ribs, and sausage), right in the middle of their meat department.  Yes, most every grocery store around the country carries these products these days, but you usually don’t see them displayed so prominently like this.  Progress, indeed…

Grabbed a bite in Akron, Ohio at Chrissie Hynde’s restaurant, VegiTerranean:


There are a few of these “high-end” vegan restaurants in LA, so it was nice to see one in a place like Akron.  I had a glazed soy chicken dish (which I think was made with a Gardein brand soy/wheat substitute) with these “healthy fries” and greens.  Nice!


One of my fellow diners had this delicious pasta with fake sausage and meatballs, which I sampled, along with everyone else’s meals.  Excellent!  Looking forward to a return visit.

More soon, kids…
