JUL 18 (2018)

During our July trip to visit my family in Bend, OR this summer, we dined at Pacific Pizza & Brew. This is a favorite place to eat pizza and sip on a cocktail (or beer).

I usually order an Oregon Mule to drink (still my favorite!), but this time I tried the Pacific Margarita. The grapefruit juice added a distinct bitter/tart flavor. It took me a while to realize what I was tasting that seemed different! This is a good margarita for those who don’t like sweet mixed drinks.

Pacific Margarita and Kale Salad – July 18, 2018

To go along with my pizza, I ordered a small kale salad (Ingredients: kale, cabbage, carrot, mint, green onions, peanuts, shaved Brussels sprouts and spicy peanut-sesame dressing). It was spicy, but good!

We ordered a veggie pizza to share, and substituted pineapple for the cheese. As usual, we gave all the crust to Todd (it’s the only part he’ll eat). He ate a record amount. He only left 2 small scraps out of 8 pieces!

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.)

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!
