Breathtaking Kauai

There aren’t words, really, to describe the outstanding scenery in Kauai, Hawaii! Even with having been there numerous times because my family made the island home a few decades ago, it is always amazing to see a rainbow and the lush green mountains pouring down into the sea. One of my favorite places to eat […]

Veggie Treats in Ensenada

I had a delicious lunch at Falafel Comida Israeli (pictured). Don’t miss Chutney Curry House in the same little mall, offering veggie options! We also tried La Sonrisa for fresh-baked breads and burritos.               Other highlights were stopping for fresh cocos (coconuts) on the way to Ensenada and catching […]

Back to the Desert

As much as I love the beach, it’s always nice to get a change of pace and see desert colors and landscapes. So we headed to Arizona for a few nights and even found some veggie-friendly sites that brought a smile when in Scottsdale and Phoenix. It was predictably hot but a lovely place to […]

A Taste of Mexico at the Boulevard Market!

Baja is definitely on the foodie radar these days and San Diegans enjoy crossing the border for flavorful foods and a dose of culture! Likewise, we appreciate the pieces of Mexico interwoven into our lives here in Southern California. I wanted to share a little something cool going on in the San Diego-Tijuana border region […]

Juice, Juice Everywhere

My latest habit when I feel a cold coming on or want to give my body an oil change:  run to the nearest juice bar and slurp down a drink filled with beets, spinach, apple, ginger and other goodies known to be nutritionally cleansing. Luckily, juice shops are all over the place these days in […]

Something reminiscent of vibrant markets in San Francisco, Seattle, and cities worldwide has arrived in San Diego like a breath of fresh air: the Liberty Public Market. Liberty Station, a buzzing spot in Point Loma, has totally transformed from its Navy training station days into a walkable area boasting everything from nonprofit office spaces to […]

Real Food Daily Rocks Repeatedly

I must confess I can’t seem to go to my hometown of Los Angeles without stopping by Real Food Daily. Whether it’s the Santa Monica or the West Hollywood location, I love the creative, delectable food and the stylish atmosphere.  My family, a mix of vegetarians, pescatarians and carnivores, enjoys dining at Real Food Daily […]

Puerto Vallarta – Healthy Options by the Sea

Puerto Vallarta may have been crowded at Christmas, but my boyfriend and I had a great time walking along the vibrant malecon, exploring nearby beaches by bus, and cafe-hopping. This was my first Puerto Vallarta vacation, but I have been to Mexico several times, slowly discovering more of the beauty and inexpensive travel not far […]

Lyfe in Los Angeles

We just took a quick trip through the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, where I spent my first years of childhood. Of course I had to explore any new culinary options on the horizon and something that came up quickly using everyone’s friend Google was Lyfe Kitchen on Ventura Boulevard in Tarzana. Conveniently a […]

Always Something for the Adventurous

Happy August. I have been delighted with the growing list of places in San Diego that are either entirely vegetarian or vegan or have separate menus or entrees for herbivorous meals. A big breakfast fan, I eagerly made it to Gelato Vero Upstairs.  The food is all vegetarian and vegan and was uniquely delicious. I […]
