Ski road trip time!

In this post, let’s talk about what vegan skiers can do to eat a quick, healthy breakfast without leaving the hotel room.

We just spent a long weekend at Big White Ski Resort.  Thanks to my Visa Rewards, we stayed for free in the White Crystal Inn.

When we arrived on Thursday March 14th, our view looked liked this:

Sunday March 17th we woke up to this:

Our “standard” room had no kitchen, but it did have a coffee maker, mini fridge, microwave, and toaster.

For our trip, I packed a couple bins full of the essentials, including a small cutting board and knife.

We brought a cooler to transport our green leafies, celery, apples, non-dairy milk, nut butter and jam.  I brought our Vitamix blender so we could make green smoothies right in the room.

Large “beer cups” are handy for smoothies in the morning and apres ski beverages in the evening.

I brought our toaster, not realizing that the room already had one.

 Eric likes to have toast with his breakfast smoothie.

I could have brought some oats to make oatmeal in the microwave,

but this time I opted for cold cereal with walnuts, raisins and non-dairy milk.

Segmented grapefruit is easy to prepare in the room.

I brought my grapefruit knife, some travel bowls and a set of utensils.

Time to get some untracked powder…

Today we passed through Kelowna on the way to Big White Ski Resort.

We’ve never been to this part of Canada before.  Of course, every trip away from home is a fun opportunity to check out new vegan/vegetarian restaurants.  That’s definitely part of the fun of being vegan!

In Kelowna, we were excited to find (on Happy Cow) a completely vegan restaurant.  Spoiled!  I have a vegan life of abundance, not deprivation.

We ordered some pan-fried dumplings for an appetizer.

For dinner, we split an order of sweet & sour veggie meat.

It was very dessert-like, actually!

We also split an order of stir-fried vegetables.  I adore broccoli and cauliflower.

Along with the bill, we were served a small “pineapple donut.”  YUM!
