Mmm...homemade pumpkin pancakes with chocolate chips and a few slices of smoky tempeh bacon. After that hearty breakfast, I'm ready to curl up and read some favorite blogs. Links to things I like from this past week:
- VegNews is offering a 12-day, all-vegan journey to Rajasthan, India. Included in the price of the trip are a stay at a Maharajah's palace, daily yoga classes, a visit to an animal sanctuary, a vegan cooking class, and much more. Oh if I only had an extra $1295 laying around...and 12 days of vacation from work.
- SuperVegan reports on the new Terri vegan cafe in the Flatiron district. Their vegan meatball parmesan sandwich sounds pretty awesome!
- Chow Vegan makes vegan Japadogs. That would be Japanese hot dogs. The one pictured below has teriyaki sauce, seaweed (nori), fried onion, and Japanese mayo. These sound so weird, and yet so good, I absolutely have to try them.
- HuffPo has a video preview of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, wherein a classroom of first graders can't identify basic fruits and vegetables. Do they know what ketchup is? Yes. Tomatoes? Not a clue.
- And The Atlantic offers 13 Ways to Impress a Vegan. Some of these things (vegetable stock?) I'm not going to be very impressed by, but Bananas Foster? Oh yes. Yes please.
