Vegan & Gluten-free at The Omni Homestead

I recently attended a conference at the Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Virginia. I had previously visited The Homestead back in 2013, and I was interested to see how the food situation had changed. Vegan & Gluten-free at The Omni Homestead My package included breakfast and dinner each day of my stay. If you eat at a non-buffet, you get an appetizer, entree, and dessert. I arrived on the first day about lunch time and was starving because I skipped breakfast. I headed towards the…

Vegan & Gluten-free at Disney World’s Rose & Crown

There aren’t that many places in Epcot that I like to eat. Most of the places don’t cater too well to the vegan, gluten-free lifestyle in an affordable way. Our favorite place to eat is Tutto Italia, but there were no walk-up reservations available for the day that we met up with friends.

Vegan & Gluten-free in Norfolk, VA – Rama Garden Thai

I was in Norfolk, VA a few times last fall for some work conferences. I was staying near Waterside, and was looking for a good place to eat. Luckily, the HappyCow app suggested that I try Rama Garden Thai, which was in walking distance from my hotel. I started out with a little salad with a delicious peanut dressing. For my appetizer, I ordered the Garden Rolls. I am always excited when a place offers garden rolls, as opposed to Spring Rolls, which I usually can’t…

Vegan & Gluten-free in New Hampshire – Portland Pie Co.

It’s been YEARS since I have had a calzone. All the places in Virginia that I go to will make gluten-free/vegan pizzas,  but not calzones. So when a friend recommended Portland Pie Co. in Nashua, NH for dinner, I jumped on it! I ordered the gluten-free calzone, without ricotta, and subbed in vegan cheese. I then added pineapple and broccoli. This thing was huge! I could only eat half of the calzone in one sitting, and even then I was stuffed! As I am currently writing about…

Vegan & Gluten-free in New Hampshire – b.good

Nathan and I were in Nashua, NH doing some last minute Christmas shopping before going to hang out with some friends. We were looking for something healthier to eat, and I came across the restaurant b.good. It was located in a very crowded shopping center that was hard to get to, but it turned out to be worth the struggle. b.good was started  around a simple idea – make fast-food “real” by making it the way it should be… by people not factories. Right when you walk…

Vegan & Gluten-free in Connecticut – It’s Only Natural Restaurant

For Christmas, Nathan and I traveled up north to New Hampshire. On our way there, we were driving through Connecticut and were getting hungry for dinner. I checked out my HappyCow app and discovered that we were not too far away from the ION Restaurant in Cromwell, CT. ION is a vegan restaurant located right off the highway. There was plenty of street metered parking, but it was free after 6pm. I didn’t feel like it was the safest area to be in at night, so…
