I'm a writer and editor who's traveled throughout the U.S. in search of fabulous plant-based meals, eco-friendly stays, and much, much more. Here, at, I highlight favorite recipes, favorite eateries, favorite hotels, favorite products, and maybe a few other favorite things too (wink, wink). A journalist by trade, I studied plant-based nutrition through Cornell University and am eager---along with my biggest supporter, Gastro Gabe---to share what WE know and what WE are still learning with the world. I support responsible agriculture, sustainable fisheries and just about anything and everything that promotes conscious living. Like what you see? Feel free to reach out, as we are always looking for like minded individuals and companies to connect with. Thanks for stopping by.

“Good food and good eating are about risk. Every once in a while an oyster, for instance, will make you sick to your stomach. Does this mean you should stop eating oysters? No way.”― Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

"I'm actually no longer a strict vegan. I don't hang out in the cheese section - I don't even eat cheese. I don't drink milk. But every once in a while I'll have an egg. I'm going to eat eggs that come out of my next-door neighbor's farm, that's just the way it is." ~ Jason Mraz
