More than a few months ago I was in Illinois for a house-sitting job and to visit with family and friends.

Friday Review: Plant-Based at Shilo Inn (The Dalles, OR)

If there’s one thing I’ve learned this last year while being 100% plant-based is that, there are always options. They might not be the million options you’re used to but there are still options. When we moved from Portland in July we headed out on a Friday night with Jeremy driving the rental truck and …

Friday Review: El Taco Grande (Batavia, IL)

More than a few months ago I was in Illinois for a house-sitting job and to visit with family and friends. While there I had quite a few opportunities to see exactly what I could eat that was plant-based (vegan) while out socializing at local but suburban restaurants. I was surprised by my former home area and how many …

Bottle Filling Drinking Fountain

We recently saw and used these fantastic bottle filling drinking fountains at Salt Lake City International Airport. Freaking brilliant! No need to only fill your water bottle 1/2 way because it’s at a diagonal! Set the water bottle in the designated area and a sensor takes care of the rest. Ours happened to be post security, perfect for refilling an …

Portland | Benessere Olive Oils and Vinegars

About 2 weeks ago now I used up another one of my google offer purchases. Woot! I love actually using them and not letting them go to waste. A google offer is much like a groupon deal. The deal is for a product or service in your area where you get 30-60% off. The most …

Portland | Irah’s Coffee and Yogurt Lounge

        I made it just in time. If you’ve ever bought an AmazonLocal, Google Offers, Groupon, or Living Social deal, you’ll know what I mean. Each of these companies offer a unique daily deal, redeemable for a product or service in your area. Say Whole Foods was the deal today, you would …

Portland: Homegrown Smoker Food Cart
