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.

(Hee hee…Pink Panther movie reference!)

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!

Cream-filled Chocolate Donut

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?

Big White Ski Resort

Big White Ski Resort

Have you ever been to a typical North American “ski-in, ski-out” village?  Vegan-friendly dining isn’t the first thing that comes to mind.

If you look around the village at Big White (and elsewhere), it’s obvious that every restaurant serves up meat, meat, and more meat.  It’s exasperating and depressing.

“Vegetarian” doesn’t necessarily mean “veganizable.”  It’s typically code for cheese, cheese and more cheese.

Vegan skiers, don’t despair.  You can have a perfectly powder-licious ski experience and find some great vegan grub at the same time.  All it takes is a little sleuthing.

Here’s the on-mountain restaurant listing for Big White.

Our trip to Big White was short (3 days).  If we stayed longer, there are other places we would also try.  Next time!

Check out where we did eat (and drink!)…

(Don’t forget to request “no fish sauce” when dining at Thai restaurants.
Expect the food to be spicy, so speak up if you want the heat turned down.)

Sante Bar Apres Ski

I (unintentionally) had a green drink theme going on for St Patrick’s Day weekend.

 The steamed edamame was green, too.  And it was addicting!
