More food in the sky

Fat Gay Vegan

Following on from the wildly-popular posts about airline food (one by me and one by my friend The Vegan Butcher), I put out an open call for readers to submit their own stories of vegan food served in the air.

A few people have sent in anecdotes relating to the animal-free food they have been served inflight. I have posted some below for your reading pleasure.

Please get in touch if you would like to see your food in the sky experience posted on Fat Gay Vegan. We are going to start up a nifty collection of vegan airline food stories at this rate! I especially encourage you to send photos with your reviews. Seat belt sign has been switched on. I hear the food trolley rattling down the aisle…

Vegan airline food: guest post by The Vegan Butcher

Fat Gay Vegan

Following on from the immense interest shown in my recent post about vegan airline food, I have started to ask people to share their words and pictures about their own experiences.

My friend The Vegan Butcher has kindly supplied me with a written account of her meal on a recent Air Canada flight. Doesn’t sound too shabby!

If you would like to submit a story about a vegan meal you have been served in the air, please email me (with photos) at fatgayvegan at hotmail dot com. I would love to feature some guest contributors. Let’s build a library of vegan airline food stories!

Take it away, The Vegan Butcher.

Falafelito es mi papito

Fat Gay Vegan

Mexico City is turning up some vegan surprises, that’s for sure.

I have purchased chocolate soya milk in grocery stores, enjoyed massive jars of tofu/olive paté and let’s not forget about the wonderful vegan cupcakes made right here in Distrito Federal. Oh no, I haven’t been going hungry.

Amongst this cornucopia of hidden vegan delights is one of the loveliest food outlets anywhere in the world. Vegans and vegan-curious, please let me introduce you to Falafelito.

Yoga Rocks the Park

This coming Sunday you can bend, stretch and contort into yoga poses in Denver’s Great Outdoors. Yoga Rocks the Park is kicking off it’s 4th season at the Sunken Gardens at 9:30 a.m. while the birds are still chirping. Yoga Rocks the Park is scheduled at various Denver parks through September 16. Each week a different musician accompanies the yoga practice as well as a new teacher.

The creator of Yoga Rocks the Park, Erik Vienneau, calls outdoor yoga a grassroots movement. When he started the program four years ago he wasn’t sure that anyone would show up. “I was amazed to see people walking towards me with yoga mats ,” says Vienneau. About thirty people showed up for the first event. Now, numbers reach into the hundreds.

“It feeds the need. It’s bigger than yoga. People are here to connect.” reveals Vienneau.

5 reasons to give outdoor yoga a…
