The 2013 Vida Vegan Conference is here!

If you don’t know, this is a vegan bloggers conference.  It’s my first year attending, and it’s happening in Portland, Oregon for 3 days.

It’s incredibly exciting to be around so many like-minded people who are trying to change the world for animals.  This experience is all about vegan community, vegan food, animal rights advocacy, vegan products, vegan blogging, food activism, and…vegan swag!

(For people who eat such dismal diets of deprivation, vegans sure get excited about their food!)

This post is all about the swag.  I had to photograph my loot ’cause I like to take pictures of stuff.  I’m weird that way!

First, I received a little swag bag when I checked into Hotel Fifty.  The Susan Nichole makeup/toiletry bag is gorgeous!

I love to see "vegan" on menu boards!

Vegan Cock-N-Balls (??)

Voodoo Doughnut (22 SW 3rd Avenue) is a place I’ve been meaning to try for a while.  Please note that they take cash only.  The top shelf of the spinning donut display is vegan.

The top shelf of  the display is VEGAN!

Fortunately I had the 2 dollars to pay for my cream-filled chocolate donut.

Here's looking at you, kid.

Since I can count on less than one hand the number of doughnuts I eat per year, you’d better believe that I enjoyed this not-so-little sugar bomb!

Insert yummy sound here.  (Hee-hee…Young Frankenstein movie reference!)

You’d think the sugar would be enough.  Nope.  I walked down the street and picked up a soy latte at Stumptown Coffee Roasters (128 SW 3rd Avenue).

Now that’s a power breakfast!

By the way…Is it doughnut or donut?
