But what are you willing to do about it!?
Finally caved and had to try the @impossible_foods
They also have sweet potato fries right now! Pretty nice to have a fast food option even though I probably won't make it a habit! 🤣
Tried another new place last night in my explorations of Shererville! Very solid pie and the vegan Greek Salad with buffalo tofu was straight 🔥
Been a while since I posted a gym shot, but still at it!
Grabbed some solid vegan slices @dimospizza
BBQ and Philly! 🤑
Traditional Vegan Breakfast @frenchmeadowcafeongrand
Had to get the blue corn blueberry pancake as well because it is super legit and, you know, I eat a lot... 🤣
hot bar after a core, shoulder and run for my workout today. #carbs
Also had some local BBQ tempeh for some #protein
Ran and errand with my buddy up to Milwaukee on Saturday and was pumped that @lakefrontbrewery
has vegan options on the taphouse menu! Got the vegan tacos and they were delish, along with a great seasonal brew! 🌱💪🍻
Great vegan grub @chicagodiner
Huge menu so this one will need some more visits to try out a few other items! Got the Chilaquiles and split the biscuits and gravy!
The MOD pizza @spaccanapolichicago
with mushrooms and chili flakes added was awesome! Digging my tour of Chicago so far!
Some super legit vegan fare in Chi-town! 🤑🤑🤑
Vegan Spaetzle and swipe to see the Young Coconut Ceviche! Stuff was all 💣
The vegan movement is alive and well in Indiana! Found this locally made vegan grub @wholefoods
and it was 💣
BBQ tofu, greens and vegan Mac! It was some of the best mac I have had yet as a vegan! 😋
find in Indiana! We don't have this chain up in MN but I think I need it there ASAP! The crust is on point and they have vegan cheese too! 🤩
Outside of Chicago for a while for some work training and this place (conveniently attached to @wholefoods
) popped up on @happycow.
Had to try the Loaded Vegan Fries and got the @beyondmeat
burger as well. Very solid eats! Glad there appear to be a couple places near the hotel to try out in the next couple weeks!
Seems appropriate after my visit to NYC this week... 🤣
The Crunchwrap @jselbys
is super legit! That vegan chorizo though!
Starting off the day with some @vegan.bklyn.foodie
treats for my family and bringing the rest to my grandmother's nurses later on! They will all be spoiled by these amazing treats!
is close to my grandmother that we are visiting daily, so ended up there again tonight and it didn't disappoint!
Had the Mexican Lasagna and the Carrot Cake! 🤑🤑🤑
Second lunch of NYC visit @hummusplace
Pretty solid hummus and falafel here! 🌱💪
First meal in NYC was delicious! Ended up @candlecafe
and had the Cajun Seitan Sandwich. The potatoes were to die for! 🤑
According to the reports out last week, our planet will be relegated to something that will put all of humanity at risk if we don't act immediately.
Will you be part of the solution or take a stone age mentality towards your role in the planet's health?
Post-workout meal last night with soba noodles, kale, carrots, tofu, broccoli and peanut sauce!
Hard to find vegan protein sources, you! 🤣🤣🤣
The Pumpkin Bread French Toast @jselbys
is da 💣 .com!
Been dealing with some kind of a cold and sore throat so some veggie noodle soup was in order! Turned out well for no recipe! 🌱💪
Little smoothie bowl action. Not bad for a first try! Had lots of berries and juice to use up so making the most of it and trying to get some major vitamins in since I've been fighting a cold!
First time trying @bigriverpizza
since I saw they have vegan cheese!
Very good stuff! Went with my favorite sweet and spicy combo of jalapenos and pineapple and a few other veggies tossed in! Vegan meats would be great to see on the menu, otherwise I'd go lighter on the vegan cheese next time around. Give them a try! Looks like a cool spot but I just carried out!
Today makes day 16 of being #meatless
👏🏽!!!! Most of the food I have been eating have been #plantbased
🌱 at this point I have no desire to eat ANY meat!! Now I am trying to work out the kinks on products that have diary, eggs, and other animal products in them. But once again this is my journey and I am having fun along the way you are more than welcomed to join me and follow me on this new chapter in my life.
Breakfast: veggie stir fry with tomatoes and avocado... oh can’t forget my maple “ veggie” sausage 😊

Yesterday whipped up some air fried potatoes using only 1TB truffle olive oil, sea salt, black pepper and topped with @kellyscroutons
Hard to argue with these #facts
Is there such thing as too much @theherbivorousb
Tried the seasonal vegan pesto flatbread, salad and brussel sprouts! All super good! Flatbread may be getting dining in. More crispy there I'm sure.
pro tip! Add both harissa or s'khug and amba for a sweet and spicy flavor explosion! 💣💥💣💥💣💥
Had my favorite brunch item @pizza_luce
this AM once again! The Buckaroo is always a good bet! 🤑🤑🤑
Sorry Minnesotans! There a tempeh raffle around!? 🤣🤣🤣
Whipped together some tacos using some @uptonsnaturals
chorizo and my top secret seasoning! 🤑🤑🤑
Time to redefine life goals...? 🤣
1,000 Followers and counting! Thank you all for your support and following my journey! More great food, fitness and funnies to come!
Not sure why I got groceries today because I had dinner out again @frenchmeadowcafeongrand
Had the Healing Plate and it was delicious! May be my new favorite item there for dinner! Tempeh, mashed sweet potato, coconut scented red beans, brown rice and some cooked greens! 🤑🤑🤑
Had to get on the bandwagon and try the Fall special with the @theherbivorousb
bacon on the Butternut Squash Pizza!
Delicious with a bit of smoke from the bacon and spice from the crushed red chili!
It is absolutely gorgeous outside so went for a run this AM and then decided I may as well walk up to @badweatherbrew
to get some grub from @reverie_mpls
The lemongrass tofu tacos are just amazing and had red beans and rice as well, although it seemed very light on the rice which was ok because I am stuffed!
On the way back I cut through Irvine Park, which is also beautiful! Swipe ⬅️ for a fountain pic!
Swung into @evansorganiceatery
today and got the Legend Tacos! They were 💣! So much veggie goodness! Will have to make time to get back more often! 👏👏👏
Tofu, kale and quinoa... Can this vegan option be more stereotypical...?
But, it is delicious! 🤣🤣🤣
Post-run meal this AM put some great figs to use along with my lifeblood, peanut butter... Yum!
Ended the night @pizzanea
and it was a great choice! Had one with @theherbivorousb
prosciutto and Italian sausage along with mushrooms and pine nuts! 🤑🤑🤑
Made it back to @jselbys
for the first time in a while! Hadn't had a Solo (Dirty Style) or the Nachos in a long time! They were both better than the last time I remember! 🤑🤑🤑
Had another nice visit to @haihaimpls
The Salt and Pepper Tofu may be my favorite! So good!
Had a great dinner with my mom @tongueincheekmn
tonight! So many great and growing vegan options on their menu!
Watermelon teaser was great, followed by gnocchi and then a nice chocolate and pineapple custard for dessert! 😍😍😍
Also made some homemade guacamole and cashew queso last night! 🤑🤑🤑
I hardly ever bake but had 3 ripe bananas to use and guests coming over, so vegan banana bread it was! Turned out great!
Used some maple sugar I got in VT to mix the recipe up a bit and think that was a difference maker!
The truth hurts sometimes... 😜
Quick dinner tonight before my fantasy draft! @gardein
Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick'n over some baby greens and @seedsofchange
rice and quinoa! Nom! 🤑🤑🤑
Grabbed dinner @ Shish in Saint Paul. Didn't realize they had remodeled, but looks great inside and the food was good too! Very good falafel!
Under construction once again. September is going to be a month of staying back on track for my fitness!
Packing, moving, weekend trips have all gotten me twisted this summer, but it feels good to get sweating again!
Just a couple of the items we tried at the Minnesota State Fair last night! All were delish!
1. Tipsy Pies Irish Apple Pie
2. Garlic Fries from the Ballpark
Not pictured because I ate them too fast were falafel from Falafel King and Earth Wings from @frenchmeadowcafe
and of course some roasted corn (hold the butter!).
again and grubbing on the @thbfoodtruck
The Buffalo "Chicken" Sandwich was awesome! The Mac 'N Cheeze was alright, could use more of a sauce and some more cheesiness going on though. Overall, still delicious and the HB Chorizo on the Mac was great!
Swipe for some beautiful cocktails as well!
