Ok everyone...

I'm back and posting on fb/ig again because everyone just kept liking my shit while I was not posting so why the heck not come back. I'll post more often on both of those and do really big posts here again every once in while.
Here's the links, check it:

Peace, love, and fake chikn grease, (and OXFORD COMMAS)

Au revoir for now!

Hey all! I'm posting this from Berlin, Germany. I have good news and bad news...
The good news is that: I love that you have supported me throughout the last however many years I've been posting as MN Vegan, on fb/instagram/the blog. I'm glad ppl thought my posts were worthwhile at all.
The bad news: I've got some big plans for myself in the next 1.5-2 years and really need to focus on them. This Europe trip has made it even more apparent than before. I will no longer be posting as MN Vegan from here on out. I'll take down the fb in the next couple of days and leave the blog up. I AM STILL VEGAN. Vegan for life, yo.

You all have been wonderful, seriously. Thank you for saying hi to me at the vegan festivals and sharing in my joy of vegan food. We have a ton of options now in Minnesota and it's so great (check out HappyCow Vegan Guide, they're the best!) Peace and love always,

MN Vegan's Best of 2016

Ok guys...I know that I've been more inactive than usual on this thing. That's because I'm mostly posting on the FB and IG these days (@themnvegan on both). Also I co-star on Feed Me Vegan and that's been keeping me busy too (@feedmeveganshow on IG and FB!). Check me out!

I felt it imperative, NAY-ABSOLUTELY 100% NECESSARY, to post about my favorite things that I ate this year, and lord knows I can't fit all of that in one FB/IG post (read: I eat a lot).

I wanted to make certain this was feasible for readers and so I made it very, very simple for you: Best Lunch/Dinner Meal, Best Breffest/Brunch Meal (bc it's my fave meal of the day. Luh you soooo very much, brunch, you the best), and Best Dessert (second favorite meal).

BEST LUNCH/DINNER MEAL: Gotta give it up to SeƱor Wongs in St Paul. If you're wanting a good lunch/Taco Tuesday/date dinner this place provides a damn good meal with lots of vegan options.

Honorary mention to anything that Herbivorous Butcher serves in their deli (sandwiches and soups mostly).

BEST BREFFEST/BRUNCH MEAL: The "Yes It's Vegan" donut sammy from Glam Doll Donuts. They use Herbivorous Butcher vegan meats and the vegan egg to make this awesome hangover killer. Check out the NE location of Glam Doll Donuts that just opened!

BEST DESSERT THING/MEAL: Any of the non-dairy ice creams from Milk Jam Creamery. Try the peanut butter Oreo one-it is bomb!

That's a wrap! And shout out to you guys (readers). You guys are the bestest. My page is almost at 50,000 hits and that warms my heart so much it might just burst. DO IT YOU GUYS. MAKE IT BURST. PLZ.

Ok enough of the tomfoolery. See you guys on the flip.

MN Vegan on Feed Me Vegan

Ok's the news. I'm now a co-host on Feed Me Vegan and my first episode "Cozy Comfort Food" with the lovely Chelsea Youngquist (hot/superstar/genius) who runs Animal Rights Coalition's programs is now up on youtube! 
Some shoutouts that made it into the episode (my first! Woo!): The Vegan Zombie (heyoo Chris ;) ), The Herbivorous Butcher (♥ Aubry and Kale), and Rachel Ray Show (who makes putting together a 30 min meal look EASY when it indeed is not, rock on R. Ray). 

Ok guyz, enjoy! Hope you likey. CLICKY HERE TO WATCH!

Ok...I lied. This is really not that important. It's about food and stuff. Because this is a food blog. And today I'm feeling particularly bloggy.

However...I will say that in a couple of weeks I'm going be able to share some really exciting news with you all. But until then your curious minds will have to wait. I promise it's good. I PROMISE, OK????



I'm really just wasting time because I'm thinking about what I've eaten recently that I can show you. Ah yes!

I went on a hiking trip on the Superior Hiking Trail in Duluth. I didn't make my goal (30 miles), but I did acquire a kickass injured ankle and knee. Win win? Don't answer that.

I did drown my sorrows in this though (the quinoa curry bowl from Duluth Grille), which was probably the best decision I made the entire trip. The cubes that look like tofu are actually fried garbanzo bean cubes (aka yummmm):

And then! I ate some schtuff at the beloved Herbivorous Butcher. This is their Italian Cold Cut sammy and the ghost pepper caramel they carry (made by Comfort Candy). Both were hella good and full of flavor. Beware of the spice of that caramel. It hit me right in the back of the throat while I was leaving and I'm pretty sure everyone in the shop thought I was gonna die because all of a sudden I sounded like Golem.

That caramel is the best/worst thing that ever happened to me. Jk I'm being dramatic, but it's pretty damn good.

Ok guys...until next time. Peace and luv.

And hey! Check me out on the Insta and the FBeezy!
