L.A. Vegan Beer & Food Fest 2015

The Los Angeles Vegan Beer and Food Festival – by far my favorite vegan event of the year and arguably my favorite day of the year. It’s hard to explain if you’ve never been, but it’s just such a marvelous time. There’s a collective energy in the air of excitement and compassion and it seeps into your soul.

Sunday Funday: Vegan Brunch

I’ve been missing L.A. a lot recently. Like A LOT. I miss my friends and I miss the FOOD!

So I thought I was pretty in the know about all the vegan restaurants in the area, but for some reason I had never heard of Elderberries Cafe. Vegan, Organic, and Gluten Free options abound in this quaint little place on a quieter stretch of Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.

Hugo’s Tacos

Hugo’s Tacos is a taco stand in Studio City that is part of a bigger L.A. group of restaurants that are extremely vegan friendly. The husband and I often go to the Hugo’s in West Hollywood for their great vegan breakfasts, but I heard that the taco stand had vegan soft serve, so I had to go….
