The Friendly Fig - Boston Vegan

A Weekend in Boston

hi guys!

Ah, I am so excited to share our Boston adventure over the weekend. Joe surprised me with a reservation at True Bistro and a suite for the night. It was absolutely glorious, and seriously… what did I do to deserve this?! He’s just the best. Even just one night an hour away from home feels like a luxury vaca, ya know? Plus… all the vegan food. Like… out of control, so good. Lots of pics below the cut and some commentary – I hope you enjoy! If you haven’t been to Boston, it’s a beautiful city and deserves all the love.

Vegan in Epcot Disney

Eating Vegan Around the World in EPCOT

hi angels ;)

If you know me or have been following along for a while, you know that I am obsessed with Disney World. Joe and I try our best to go once per year, and before that, my family always made a point to go every few years as we were growing up. It’s the most magical place on earth… especially for vegans.

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about options in Epcot, because Joe and I will be (no shock here) honeymooning in Disney come October – YAYYYY! I am so excited, because we are going all out this time around (because duh, honeymoon!) We’re staying at the gorgeous Beach Club resort, which has a private gateway to Epcot. You can imagine we will be going there every damn night to enjoy all the food around the world. Joe and I are both foodies, so of course we are most excited for that, right?

Anyways, it had me thinking about my options around the world and I thought that this would be an awesome topic to cover here, too. I wanted to share some of my findings with you, in hopes that you’ll always go buck wild in Epcot whenever you get a chance to go ;)

Vacation Wish List

John and I are heading to Seattle at the end of May for a week, and I am so excited. It’s a city I’ve always wanted to visit, and I’m so glad we’re getting the chance to go! As with any trip, I desperately want to go on a shopping spree beforehand to make sure I have everything I’ll need. I’m trying to hold back, but no one can stop me from creating a wishlist! (Well, I bought two things on this list already. Oops.) Continue reading

Vegan Disney World

Vegan in Disney: Days 1 & 2

So Disney 2015 was a total success! My family + Joe are all Disney-crazy, so we had a great time. And let me tell you all about them vegan options. The most wonderful place on Earth is also one of the most vegan-friendly places on Earth. Seriously, I ate so much. It’s disgusting. I got to experience the legendary Chef TJ, too. Have you heard of him? Just google “Chef TJ Disney” and that’ll explain everything you need to know about this vegan god of a man.

I thought it would be nice to share my vegan experiences with you guys, and some of our pics! Let’s start with days 1 & 2.

Packing for Vacation: Vegan Treats in Tow

Guess who’s going to Disney tomorrow?


I’m a crazy Disney fanatic and super proud of it. Seriously, eat, sleep, Disney. This has been the case since I was a kid, stemming from having two parents who took us to Disney almost every year. I named my cat Minnie, for Christ’s sake. Anyways, I’m going and I’ve been counting down to this day since we booked it 8 months ago. I did my research on all things vegan in Disney and have my traveling treats packed and ready to go. Whether you are traveling now or later, here are a few ideas to keep in mind. Traveling as a vegan does not have to suck!

Vegan on a Roadtrip: My Snack Satchel

As you all know by now, I am on my way to see Sara in PA! So excited to get there – just 6 more hours to go! Before heading off, I took a quick pic of what I’ll be traveling with. Sara is all about posting vegan travel tips, so I figured I would throw in my two cents.

Everyone needs a snack satchel. Especially me, who needs to eat every 2 hours or so… or else the hangry sets in. See what I’m bringing!

The holidays are coming up! Okay, okay, Thanksgiving is still two months away. But it’s my favorite holiday and I’m already planning.

I’ve put together a few tips for vegans and non-vegans to gather harmoniously around the same table and live under the same roof… at least for a few days :)
