Party like a Vegan–Vegan Festivals

We love vegan parties (even though we’re usually working at them)! I would be remiss if I didn’t start this piece off with a disclaimer: We own a vegan sandwich company, and we have been vendors at most of the […]

Vegan Quest of Quebec

Salut mes amis veganes! In late March, I went on a two-day road trip with a friend in the province of Quebec. It may not have been the best time to go on a trip because of the heavy snow, […]

Vegan in Montreal 2018 – updated

*Updated Version* Many vegan restaurants in Montreal have been re-located, and I am sad to say that a few places I had mentioned in my previous entries are no longer existing. I thought it would be a good idea to […]

Vegan in Vancouver

Vancouver is the place where I spent more than half of my life, so it is safe to say that I know the city pretty well. When I became a vegetarian in 2013, there were only a couple of restaurants […]

Vancouver Vegan Adventure Weekend!

Oh Vancouver – what a treat! I don’t think I can ever visit a place anymore without planning all my meals and writing about them. I just want to share the joy of food and travel with anyone who will […]

Vegan Weekend in Victoria, B.C.

Victoria is one of those cities where life is lived a little slower. Oh, sure there’s all the amenities of a busy city and definitely all the restaurants. But, coffee shops close early and many businesses are closed on Sunday. The […]

A Mad Dash Visit in Toronto

Seriously. Could a city be any cooler? Even the run-down spots on empty streets in Toronto looked like places where I needed to be seen. Surely, anybody who was anybody had already been there…in addition to the hundred other trendy […]

Vegan in Toronto (I)

Mini-Vegan Tour of Vancouver

When you live somewhere, it’s very easy to get caught up in the little things and forget what a great place you live in.  The other day I met a friend downtown for lunch.  I don’t work downtown, and most […]

Planning a Whistler Getaway

Whistler is one of those places you have to see to really understand how spectacular it is.  I will admit that the fact I live quite close and am surrounded by the mountain views all the time makes me think […]

Toronto, the Vegan Mecca

11 days spent in Toronto has absolutely changed my life for the better. The following is a recap of the very best vegan moments! I had originally planned to visit Toronto for my first time strictly for the Vegan Food […] is a place where vegans from around the world can share their passion for travel and adventure, help promote and grow interest in going vegan, shed light on the issues animals are facing around the globe, and help build a more sustainable and compassionate world. By sharing our collective experiences, we believe we can show the world how easy it is not only to travel as a vegan, but also spread a message of compassion with those we meet along the way.

    Love, love love the video Marg and Chris!! Well done 🙂 Made me very hungry and curious for some Toronto adventures to say the least! All the food looks so amazingly delicious and fresh!! Can’t wait to try your suggestions and get my hangry vegan on 😉

    Thanks for posting and good luck, x!

    I saw all the negative comments toward this wonderful video on the vegan travel facebook page and I have to say how deeply disappointed I am in how the vegan community (a group of people who should come together for their cause) were rudely bashing the hard work that Margaret and Chris put into making this video just because of a few seconds of a clip with dog sledding. Being vegan is not only a dietary habit, it is a lifestyle that advocates for compassion and kindness not only for animal but for other human being (particularly our fellow vegans). If the average population (non vegans) were to see the negative comments that were posted on Marg and Chris’ video they wouldn’t view us for what we stand for as those actions were rude and arrogant. Margaret and Chris did a wonderful job showcasing vegan cuisine and the vegan lifestyle in their home town and it is so clear that they are passionate about all that the is vegan and about spreading that message to others. That quick clip of the dog sledding was innocent and I can guarantee that it was not done to offend anyone. People really need to stop being so judgemental of others. Like everything else in life, there are grey areas and I feel that dog sledding is a grey area in the vegan world, as are tattoos, horseback riding, some birth control methods, etc. Ultimately, my heart goes out for Margaret and Chris for working so hard on this video and then having to deal with all the hate that no one ever wants to experience (especially being told that they are bad vegans when this is everything that they stand for).

    Marg and Chris, keep your heads up. You did a wonderful job and deserve to win this competition. Let this be a message of compassion and understanding for all the vegan and non-vegans out there… Nobody should ever be treated so badly and as most of us were taught as children… lets treat each other the way that we would like to be treated!

  17. Melanie Bergeron 8 years ago

    Great video guys!!! So impressed with all the different vegan options in Toronto. Will definitely be checking out brick works and the big carrot 🙂

  18. Christina Traynor 8 years ago

    Your video was excellent! I am now so home sick for Toronto. I lived there for years (pre-vegan life….sigh), but only get back there a few times a year now. I knew about St. Lawrence Market and Kensington, but not The Big Carrot and Carrot Common on the Danforth….and I had lived just a few blocks east of there!! When I’m back in town, will certainly be checking it out. Have you ever visited the Little India neighborhood on Gerard East? Restaurants have lots of vegan options. On a side note…shout out to Sick Kids and the Pediatric ICU. My daughter received excellent care there back in 2002. She had undergone heart surgery; Today, she is 16 years old and the picture of health.

    • Margaret 8 years ago

      Hey christina thanks for checking out our video! I am so glad to hear about your daughter, hearing patients do so well, is the reason why I love my job :). And I love Indian food!! I’ve been to that area of town before but gotta check it out again. Any restaurants you would recommend?

  19. amanda james 8 years ago
