zpizza – California & more


I stumbled upon zpizza in Palm Dessert, CA while my Dad & are were cruising the art galleries. At lunch time, I became concerned that there would be few vegan options for me. We just happened upon zpizza, and they had a VEGAN PIZZA! Like a pizza, specifically, that’s vegan. Not a pizza without cheese […]

Juicy Ladies – Los Angeles, CA


Juicy Ladies is an amazing, all-organic juice bar in Woodland Hills, CA. They specialize in real nutrition and while they are not all-vegan (close, though!), they cater to vegans with a knowledgeable staff and clearly labeled menu. I had a vegan omelette (what?! – I don’t think I have ever had a vegan omelette) made […]

Green Goddess – New Orleans, LA


Green Goddess¬†is a quirky little restaurant in New Orleans that has vegan options clearly marked on the menu. The indoor seating is small and, again, quirky; there’s a dining room in the back (which I didn’t know about until I tried to find the restroom) and a small one in the front (the front dining […]

Pure Natural Market – Hilton Head, SC

Pure Natural Market Tracy & Brinsley 2

Its not easy to find vegan food in Hilton Head, so Pure Natural Market is a score. They are almost all vegan (they offer a few traditional Jamaican dishes with fish). They have an extensive smoothie offering which are all vegan (including the protein powder)! They also offer cold pressed juices, a grab-and-go cooler with […]

Market on South – Orlando, FL

Market on South 1

Market on South is an all-vegan gem in Orlando, FL. They have a small but interesting menu and brew kombucha in-house! Also plenty of vegan treats available (which makes me so happy). There’s a couple picnic tables out front if you like to dine in the sun & a small retail section inside. Must try:¬†Pulled […]

Kitchen 17 – Chicago, IL

Kitchen 17

Kitchen 17 is my FAVE vegan restaurant in Chicago. Chef owned & operated, the food is interesting, delicious, fresh and house-made with love. The chef is AWESOME. He really cares if you love the food, and he remembers EVERYTHING (like my name & my husband’s onion allergy, from the day we met). This is a […]

Mellow Mushroom, Many Locations, USA

Mellow Mushroom slice

Mellow Mushroom may be a corporate chain, but it’s saved me a lot of pain & hunger plenty of times! When vegan options are hard to come by (or when I’m dying for a pizza), a Mellow Mushroom is always a welcome sign. Their vegan pizza is delicious, and they now offer a vegan burger, […]

Sentient Bean, Savannah, GA

Sentient Bean Savannah GA

The Sentient Bean is a coffee house/cafe that’s everything you’d hoped it would be: hyper-local, eclectic, casual bordering on weird, staffed with interesting people, unique in every way. Vegan options are clearly labeled, and there is often vegan sweets in the glass display at the counter. They have delicious tea, ample indoor seating, and some […]

Planet Yum – Vero Beach, FL

Planet Yum logo

Planet Yum is very hard to find at first! Around the corner (side entrance) from it’s street address, it’s completely elusive initially. They don’t have a ton of fresh food (yet… that might be changing!) but the stuff they do have is delicious, vegan, and the place is family owned. The owner is the man […]
