Maybe not technically the best photos I’ve ever posted, but certainly up there in terms of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Hey, @momsorganicmarket, thanks for this amazing resource, and for helping save the planet, one energy bar wrapper/water filter/drink pouch at a time. You make a difference. Love, a shopper for life
[imagine if more stores did this?]

And back to shore. 
It will take some time to process all the things written on my heart by the experiences of the past two months. It was, as ever, more than I knew I needed. Thanks for traveling with me, people in my phone! With love from a wanderer in Maryland.

Chased a bit of blue (and green) this morning on the Verdon River, through the lower section of the Verdon Gorge in south-eastern France. Happy to be back on the water again.

Meditations on Decapitation, Part 2: We all know this moment, don’t we? The meditative pause to consider our adversary, before rushing forward, naked before the world, in attack? OK. So maybe we don’t know it literally, but we do metaphorically, right? We’ve all experienced a time when we’ve had to gather up all that we are and all that we have and confront our biggest foe, come what may. In those moments we’re pensive or resolved or tremulous or uncertain or all of these at once. But we do it. Somehow, we do it. We sally forth. (Who doesn’t love a good sally?) These are our defining moments because it’s not so much about the adversary as about our own ability to step away from comfort, to confront, to transcend, to transform, and hopefully after, to thrive. 
____
There’s the magic of Michelangelo’s David. Observing this pause before action, you and I know that eventually this shepherd will become king. Oh...but not yet. First, he’s got much to overcome. In departing from the fifteenth century emphasis on pride after defeat, as I shared with Donatello’s and Verrocchio’s works earlier this week, Michelangelo’s work embodies the High Renaissance focus on a new dramatic approach to narrative. He reconsiders the context, refocuses on the heart-palpitating seconds before David, possessed by a self-assured calm, springs into action. In doing so, Michelangelo monumentalizes, quite literally, the moment when the ordinary is about to become extraordinary. It’s a simple but effective departure from tradition, that's elevated by the universal experience he depicts. 
____
Btw, if you’re facing your Goliath soon, know that your battle doesn’t have to be a masterpiece. If you’re choosing to fight, I wish you Davidian focus, tempered with self compassion. You got this.
____
Swipe for details that include a Blub spotting right outside the Accademia and more of my obsession with the commodification of David. (I purchased a small orange one because I looked with my hands and not with my eyes, and dropped it. Sorry, Mom.) ____

Meditations on decapitation, part 1: triumphant victors over mighty Goliath and with arms akimbo, these boys don’t play. Swipe for precious details. Tell me, Verrocchio, how exactly does one decapitate with a dagger...?

This is it. This is the authentic Italian gluten-free vegan pizza of my dreams. It’s got a light and chewy crust made of a delicate mix of rice, corn, and tapioca flours, topped with the melty goodness of *housemade* vegan mozzarella crafted by a chef who’s been vegan at least 20 years, freshly grilled veg, and a few shavings of Gondino (a vegan parm that looks, tastes, and smells like the real deal). AND, it’s all organic. Gluten-free vegan pizzas I have known, you’ve served me well, but sit down now, because this is it. I *knew* it was possible. Ridiculously proud to have you in the vegan community, La Pépinière. La ringrazio tanto for this exquisite gastronomic experience. (Foodies take note: they make pizza with a traditional crust and regular cheeses too!)

Here’s a bit more about my #lesswaste journey that applies also while traveling! In January I stopped using qtips, tissues, cotton rounds, and disposable makeup removal cloths. I purchased flannel handkerchiefs and rounds from women-owned shops on Etsy, and the transition was SO easy I just regret that I didn’t do it sooner. Handkerchiefs seemed gross at first, but have you ever used a tissue more than once? It’s just like that, only softer. And prettier. I seriously love the fun fabrics. And I find that using the flannel rounds is so much like using the disposable kind, that sometimes I forget and have to stop myself from throwing them away! I collect the dirty items in a lingerie bag that zips, and just toss them in the wash. They get softer with every wash, and the contents of my non-recyclable trash bag has decreased significantly! This is my favorite less waste step to date. I didn’t expect to love it as much as I do. The Etsy sellers here are: @moocowmommashop @cuteandfunky and @hintoflimer. I love that I get to support women business owners at the same time that I’m striving to live more gently on this earth.

Ceccolini Bio is a fantastic vegan- and gluten-free-friendly cafe in the center of Ravenna. Not only do they have a huge daily selection of delicious homemade dishes with which to make the lunch plate of your dreams, but they’ve got an amazing spread of pastries too! Never doubt that a gluten-free vegan lifestyle is bland - just look at this plate! There’s some millet torta, green beans, quinoa pilaf, lentils with veg, and my favorite - the roasted veg medley with potatoes, eggplant, zucchini, and tomatoes tossed with fresh basil. Loved it. Swipe to see dessert of buckwheat cookies and a genuine aqua faba meringue. Ravenna, you were a delight, as always!

San Vitale. One of the greatest buildings on earth, and one of the few places I’ve visited that is so beautiful, I have to sit down and stop looking, so I can take it all in. It’s why I couldn’t sleep last night: I was too anxious to visit with this old friend. Made it to Ravenna in time to be the first person across the threshold, and then it was all joy and mosaics and soaring vaults and sunlight. Ravenna was the last capital of the Roman Empire, and this is a 6th c. Early Christian basilica built on an octagonal plan and consecrated in the time of Justinian, with a dome that was later Baroqued. The mosaics in the apse are off the hook. Swipe for a little peek! That’s Empress Theodora herself (“the empress from the brothel”) who lived a heck of a life, and who, adorned in serious bling, always reminds me of Cher. Kicking myself because I forgot the visit Santa Costanza in Rome, which is San Vitale’s immediate precedent. (Also!! *6th century* flying buttresses! They’ve got more of a lateral thrust than those of the Gothic period, but still. Whoa.) #ifimayhaveitaly #sanvitale #ravennamosaici #mosaici #mosaics #theodora #justinian #lookup #earlychristian #flyingbuttresses #mosaicart #churcharchitecture #arthistory101 #veganflaneuse #arthistorynerd #wandering #travelgram #artspiration #archidaily  #architettura #beniculturali30 #terrerare #postcardsfromitaly #italian_places #ravenna #igersravenna #instaravenna #myravenna #volgoravenna #emiliaromagna

Spent a beautiful day in Siena, which included amazing food, art, and architecture, and ended with a taxi driving onto my foot and hanging out there for a little bit until I got him to back up. (“There’s a car on my foot,” I thought, when I found myself immobilized.) Amazingly, I’m mostly ok! Nothing is broken - just a little bruised. Thankfully I’ll live to run another day. Stay tuned for more of Siena while I rest my foot for a day or two.

Here are two views of the Ponte Vecchio in early morning light. The first from Ponte alle Grazie; swipe for the second (which was actually taken first), from Ponte Santa Trinita. I couldn’t decide on just one. Which do you prefer?

Broccoli and sun-dried tomato gluten-free penne with walnuts and a squeeze of lemon to brighten. This was wonderful! Loosely followed Cookie + Kate’s recipe, so the “sauce” here is mostly garlic and crushed red chili pepper infused olive oil, pasta water, and vegan parmigiano. I think it’ll be great as cold leftovers too. The lovely bowl is from my favorite shop in Florence: Sbigoli terrecotte. I can’t say enough wonderful things about their pottery as well as their genuine kindness. I look forward to stopping in every time I’m in Florence. Grazie mille, @sbigoliterrecotte!

Greens, beets, and figs. A shaving of plant-based parmigiano and a sprinkle of French fleur de sel. Vinaigrette of Tuscan evoo and luscious aceto balsamico di Modena invecchiato. Swipe for my cannellini beans with sage and rosemary from the market. They got too mushy, but I have no problems with that. They taste amazing!! (I used the recipe from Epicurious, if you’re interested, and added back to the beans the entirety of the cooked head of garlic. Solid choice.) These beans would taste great puréed and used as a dip! Oh Tuscany... you’re an inspiration.

Alberti kills it with the humanism here. Look back in my feed at the Roman monuments for a refresher on the various elements. Can you make out the pedimented 🔺temple facade resting atop that lower bit, reminiscent of a triumphal arch? But then what to do? Join them with fancy-ass curving volutes, of course. Nicely done, LBA. #romapersempre

Sending mad love today also to artist Exit/Enter whose dynamic work enlivens the streets of Firenze. Whether romantic, thought-provoking, political, or cheerful, his images always bring me to a standstill and make my whole day. I saw two today! Will be adding those I find to my Stories.

Ok, everybody just calm down, now! Blub is finally back on my feed. 👏 If you’re new to this wonderful artist, you can find his series, L’arte sa nuotare (Art knows how to Swim), like little gifts, all around Florence. Here’s Galileo for your Monday! (I’ll post all the others I find in my Stories.) Still crushin’ on you, Blub. Love what you’ve done with the place. #mcm #blub #lartesanuotare @lartesanuotare #publicart #artoftheday #artspiration #artonthestreet #streetart #streetartist #experienceart #contemporaryart #artinflorence #seenonmywalk #wandering #passeggiata #ifimayhaveitaly #firenzemia #firenzegram #florencegram #igersflorence #arthistorynerd #rinascimentoitaliano #italiainunoscatto #whatitalyis #myflorence #galileogalilei #choosejoy #veganflaneuse #urbex #flanerie

Happy plastic-free July! I like this idea overall because I’ve been trying hard to reduce waste this year. It’s a bit more difficult while traveling, so my first thought is: “perfect” is NEVER my goal, in ANYTHING. I believe in progress, not perfection, so I’m going to listen to my priorities and pocketbook and local availability this month, and do what I can! That said, I’d like to share two (unsponsored) products that I brought with me to Europe in hopes of continuing to reduce waste. 
____
The first is my @flipandtumble bag, which I LOVE. It’s my favorite reusable bag. I carry it in my purse every single day, and use it almost daily. I love that there’s felt at the shoulder to help the strap stay up, that it folds into its own cute pocket easily, and that it’s available in lots of colors. It holds a LOT, too!
____
Swipe for the second: my @zuluathletic Atlas water bottle. The bottle itself is all glass (even the part from which you drink!) with a protective silicone sleeve. The pop top lid, though, is (unfortunately) plastic and has a cool locking mechanism. Because it’s mostly glass, it’s pretty heavy for travel, but I’m glad I brought it along: it was perfect for refilling at fountains in Rome! Everything really does taste better from glass, and this bottle has absolutely helped me drink more water, which I love.
____
I like months like these that help me open my eyes and make better choices. If I can make MORE plastic-free (or LESS plastic) choices this month, that’s a win for the planet, and hopefully it’ll help form better habits overall. Is anybody else participating in Plastic-Free July?

Sunday run, Roman style: down the Gianicolo and through sleepy Trastevere; across Ponte Garibaldi and straight to the Piazza della Rotunda for a blissfully unimpeded view of Hadrian’s Pantheon. Retrace my path and left, to tread quietly up the steps of the Baroque il Gesù, then around the corner to Michelangelo’s magnificent Campidoglio. Good morning, dear Marcus Aurelius! Then I join the rest of this morning’s happy runners for a dash past the fori imperiali, and take a spin around the Colosseum. Oh, look up! Heart filled with admiration for Constantine’s spolia-laden arch, I continue on to the Circus Maximus. Though I find myself without my chariot, I direct my gaze towards the Palatine, raise my fist high in the air, bellow “For the glory of Rome!” and take a quick lap. It never gets old. I head back towards the Tiber, then, past the Fountain of the Tritons and the sweet Republican temples in the Forum Boarium, peeking in at the Bocca della Verità (it is closed, but I promise I am true), before running back up the hill and concluding my run with a painfully small iced coffee. That’s six, kids. Happy Sunday, people in my phone!

Popped into the gluten-free bakery Pandalì today. I think I tried one of each of their vegan options: pizza rossa and a spinach pocket, and for dessert, cookies “al vino” and beridde dolce. I’ve never had anything quite like beridde before - dense and a little gooey with candied fruit. Yum. All of this was super tasty, and the place was PACKED! Happy for them. I’ll definitely be back.

“Love and great buildings will survive. Strong hearts and concrete stay alive...” These lines of an Andrew McMahon song are always in my head when I’m in the Pantheon. That dome is made of over 4500 tons of concrete, and it has a permanent place in my heart. The other thought in my head today: Hadrian built a wall... Write your congressmen, folks, or send money to groups like the ACLU if you can.

The Giardino degli Aranci on the Aventino. The most perfect place to view the sunset in Rome, with a jazz trumpeter providing a soft soundtrack in the park. Magical. Buona notte. (Instagram is being wonky and won’t let me post multiple photos tonight. Check my stories for more!)

Keep your eyes peeled! You never know what sort of gems you’ll stumble upon. I’ve been frequenting this little cafe next to the walls of the Gianicolo because they serve an amazing iced coffee that gives me life. To my surprise, they also offer gf and vegan-friendly options at lunch for a reasonable price. This was a delicious and simple meal: baked tomatoes stuffed with rice with grilled veg on the side. And iced coffee, too, of course. Delightful.

In April 2016, South African artist William Kentridge’s monumental mural, Triumphs and Laments, was completed along the banks of the Tiber River. The work depicts scenes from throughout Italian history, capturing, as the title suggests, moments of her glory, as well as of her suffering, from ancient through modern times, in a non-chronological tableau. Because the figures (which rise up to 33’) are essentially stencils power-washed into the fungus- and lichen- covered travertine walls that line the river, the 1800’-long frieze was intentionally created as ephemera - it will disappear over time, as it is claimed by accumulated filth and biological regrowth. Reading about such a poetic take on the history of the Eternal City had me completely enthralled. I couldn’t wait to see it in person. 
____
But I was in Rome for five days last summer, and when I couldn’t find traces of his work, I assumed it had faded faster than I had expected. Turns out, I was just looking on the wrong freaking side of the river. 😏 During my run along the Lungotevere a few days ago, the image of the she-wolf looming overhead stopped me dead in my tracks. Honestly, I started laughing at my own stupidity through tears of joy that I was actually seeing the work at last. (Seriously! It’s right by the Ponte Sisto - you can see it in my last post! How on earth did I ever miss it?!) I’ve been back several times for more images and to try to take it all in. Morals of the story: William Kentridge’s work is as compelling as I had imagined, and don’t forget to wander, loves. (Project director was Kristin Jones of Tevereterno.)

Love this view of St. Peter’s dome (designed by Michelangelo) over the Ponte Sisto. That bridge was commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV and built by his favorite architect, Baccio Pontelli, who he also asked to build the Sistine Chapel. This is the only bridge, btw, to be constructed across the Tiber between antiquity and the 19th c.

Best gluten-free pizza I’ve ever had in Italy. Light and fluffy and chewy and a little charred, like I like it, with a bit of heavenly sliced garlic here and there and perfectly grilled veg. What a treat. They have TWO kitchens here, to accommodate the gluten-free. So special.

Nope. Not Greek. Roman Republican! This is the charming Temple of Portunus (god of the harbor, among other things), located near the ancient port on the Tiber, and built in the second or first c. BCE. Flip to my posts from the Acropolis, and you’ll clearly see the Greek influences here. The triangular pediment, swirling volutes at the top of the columns, and the LOOK of a colonnade of marble around the exterior (though it’s not *quite* the same, is it?) shows the Roman love for all things Greek. There’s also Etruscan influence here, but that’s another post for another time. I’ve never been inside this temple. I don’t think you’re allowed to do so. Super cute though.

I’m back in Rome, but here’s one more from Athens for now. I love the colors and textures of these baskets and graffiti on a random street corner. The shop keeper actually made fun of me a little for taking a picture of “just baskets,” but I think they’re so much more than that. Efharistó, Athens! I know I’ll be back again one day. You’re too amazing to stay away for long.

This deliciousness from Avocado made my day! That’s a risotto with edamame and dill, topped with guac! More avocado and toasted pine nuts in the salad with spring onions. On the side: gf buckwheat shiva shakti bread which was amazing - nutty and hearty with a touch of sweetness from the banana in the mix. I’m really surprised we don’t use buckwheat more in the States. Gonna see what I can do about that.

Taking a couple of days in Athens. It’s my second visit here, and my memory didn’t do this place justice. It’s a riot. It’s old and new and bustling and not as smoggy as it once was,  and it’s filled with the coolest cafes next to even cooler bars. It’s crazy hot and bursting with sunshine and taxis. It’s absolutely covered in graffiti and hillier than I remember, and this view with the ships out at sea reminds me at once of the Golden Horn in Istanbul and the Chesapeake. And, btw, Athens remind me as I round every corner, it’s the freaking birthplace of western civilization. I canNOT stop looking. I’ve put some snaps in my stories if you wanna take a peek. PSA for today lovelies: never waste the opportunity to wander. Life is too short not to do it. Where can you wander this week? Show me!

On the ground floor of Rome’s Casa Internazionale delle Donne lies a beautiful vegan-friendly secret: Luna é l’altra, a buffet style cafe in a charming setting. Visitors purchase their preferred size plate, then select choices from a large buffet of freshly cooked dishes ranging from pastas and grilled veggies to rice and meat dishes (with lots of vegan and gf vegan options too!). This is how I prefer to eat: a little of this and that and some aqua frizzante (which I’m learning to love at last) under a bunch of trees on a beautiful patio, wrapped in the scent of star jasmine while watching cats nod off. Yeah. Just like that. It’s casual and welcoming and not-your-typical Roman cafe, which is why I love it with all my heart. (Plus, they ALWAYS have roasted potatoes! These were roasted with turmeric! Totally delicious. And the chickpeas were marinated with sun-dried tomatoes.👌) #ifimayhaveitaly #vegana #veganrome #vegansofrome #veganitalia #veganaf #casainternazionaledelledonne #whatveganseat #veganfoodie #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #glutenfreerome #glutenfreevegan #glutenfreetravel #senzaglutine #vegantravel #veganlunch #veganbowl #plantbased #yayplants #potatoesarelife #bowlfood #grilledveggies #eatyourveggies #verduregrigliate #veganinrome #veganflaneuse #chickpeasalad

Raw vegan in Rome?! Absolutely! Écru is a beautiful cafe near Ponte Sant’Angelo that serves homemade kombucha (!!!) and a large menu of raw vegan dishes. I couldn’t make up my mind, so I started with a thick cashew yogurt, fruit, and rawnola bowl, which was so refreshing. Swipe to see their sprouted hummus and raw crackers. The flax meal and onion was my favorite, but I also tried a hearty seed cracker and an almond turmeric cracker - all delicious and satisfying. It’s got me thinking about new ways to use my dehydrator at home! Loved this so much. Happy to find raw food in Rome.

It’s my veganversary! Six years ago yesterday, I stepped off a plane from Peru, ordered one last hamburger at the Chili's in O'Hare airport, and woke up the next morning, eager to begin a 30 day trial at being vegan. Luckily, it stuck!
____
I knew immediately where to celebrate this day in Rome: Romeow Cat Bistrot! It was a perfect choice. This meal was painstakingly crafted and artistically presented - truly a delight to the soul and the palate. Swipe to see the delicate curry with spring vegetables and mixed rice, earthy and satisfying buckwheat “circle” with a pistachio cream and zucchini flowers, and a raw chocolate and hazelnut cake that was beyond decadent. You’ll also catch a glimpse of one of the six cats that call the Bistrot home. 
____
I spoke with Valentina, the delightful owner, who mentioned that non-vegans often visit her awesome restaurant because of the cats (and then love the food). On my walk home, I reflected on the vegan point of view...
____
Do you know what has surprised me the most about being vegan? The feeling of knowing that no animal suffered or died so that I might eat today. There is no violence on my plate. Only plants. Only joy. This was a realization that took a while to truly sink in, and it changed me, very much for the better.
____
And so these cats in the Bistrot that help lead non-vegans to amazing food...wandering through the restaurant and stretching out for naps at will...they’re perfect because they reminded me that I choose to do no harm; to live gently on this earth...for the animals, for the planet, and for me. 
____
I’ll never tell anyone how to eat. Not ever. But I try to fill my instagram feed with proof of how delicious plant-based eating can be, to help de-stigmatize veganism a little. (I don’t believe that we have to be militant to be effective.) I’m ridiculously happy with tonight’s #veganfoodshare. Here’s to a lifetime of plants! Ahimsa.

How have I been in Italy five days without eating gelato?! Must have been waiting for the right gelateria. Found it! Was ecstatic to find that at Fonte della Salute in Trastevere, fully half of their twenty gelato flavors are vegan! The choices aren’t just standard, either. They’re special. I got: pineapple and basil, apple and cinnamon, and banana brûlée.

Here’s a #traveltuesday shot of the Île de la Cité at sunrise on Thursday, from my perch on the Pont des Arts. The spire that stretches to greet the dawn is that of Sainte Chapelle. Endlessly glad I got to spend some time with Paris at sunrise. (They turned off the street lights just a few moments after I took this photo.)

You know that line in Eat, Pray, Love where she says “Ruin is a gift”? Yeah. Me too. 💕 (Alternate caption: when you’re meant to visit the blockbuster Monet show on its last night but you don’t because Trajan. And also because you didn’t really wanna see Monet anyway.) Swipe, lovers of antiquities, for the Arch of Septimius Severus, the Column of Trajan and what remains of the Basilica Ulpia, dear Trajan’s Markets basking in the sun, il Colosseo from afar, and the darling Temple of Hercules Victor with that of Portunus just beyond. #romapersempre

Origano near the Campo de’Fiori is one of my favorite vegan-friendly restaurants in the world. I came here for the first time over a year ago, after the Women’s March Rome, high on the power of resistance, and ordered a pesto veggie stack that was one of the most creative things I’ve ever eaten. Craving serious veg, I headed back to Origano today. The beautiful stack is a veggie “millefoglie” (thousand leaves) and is meant to have a layer of bread in there, but they leave it out if you ask. Their new menu substitutes a delicious red pepper paste for the pesto and adds smoked tofu, but it’s every bit as delicious as I remember. The base is more of the patate arrosto that give me life. For me, this dish highlights the joy of being vegan. Swipe for a closer look!

Roma. I’ve needed this. I booked this portion of my summer in November and crossed my fingers I wouldn’t have to cancel. Per fortuna, I didn’t, though it was touch and go for awhile. On this, my first morning in my little guest house in Trastevere, the water from the shower flowed in a frustrating trickle; the hairdryer seemed uncertain about the requirements of its position; and the WiFi (weefee) stalled three times while attempting to download WhatsApp. Italy says, predictably, *slow down* yet each visit, also predictably, I press back, insistent upon my own agenda, my own timing. But not today. Today I simply took a longer shower, decided to let my hair air-dry, and enjoyed this perfect caffé while the WiFi made up its mind. I’ll try not to fight you too hard this time, Italia mia. (These are the tiles of my balcony, btw. 😍)

I’m a sucker for a sunrise, especially when I’m traveling. There’s nothing quite like greeting the start of the day in a new place...watching the city wake up as the sun gently brings it to life. That’s why I began today stupid early, on the Pont des Arts, anticipating the caress of rosy-fingered dawn on the Ile de la Cité. It wasn’t quite the visual production one hopes for in moments like these, but still...I couldn’t stop smiling. Good morning, Paris. (The first photo is my favorite: the artist I shared the bridge with. Swipe to see bits of Notre Dame, the Pont Neuf, and the Panthéon’s dome from the Pont Saint-Louis.) Today was my last full day in Paris. Will share more of what I saw (and ate!) here over the next few days.

From Chambelland, the makers of the gf vegan focaccia I ate at Wild and the Moon, may I present: breakfast to go. The man behind the counter called it a “sugar stick,” so how could I say no? Crunchy and sugary on the outside; light as air on the inside with that beautiful French combination of orange and chocolate chips. Decadent. Swipe to see more of their gf vegan goodies!

My favorite part of Versailles was the gardens. I wandered to my heart’s delight, peering down every secret pathway, poking into every grotto, appreciating every grove, bloom, and fountain. Luckily, I visited on a day the fountains were on and there was music piped through the gardens. Charles Le Brun’s Apollo fountain steals this show, and actually turns into something reminiscent of Flashdance when the fountains are activated. My only regret is that I didn’t have on my running shoes! 😉

My only regret is that I didn’t have on my running shoes! 😉 #gardensofversailles  #versailles  #chateaudeversailles  #fountain  #apollofountain  #charleslebrun  #lebrun  #baroquesculpture  #louisxiv  #sunking  #leroisoleil  #wandering  #veganflaneuse  #parislovers  #igersparis  #optoutside  #gardenfountain  #apollo  #jardinsdeversailles  #parisjetaime  #visitparis  #sculptureoftheday  #scultura  #baroqueart  #parisgram  #travelgram  #wandering  #runnerproblems  #artstagram  #artspiration 
Finally made it out to the Sun King’s humble abode today. While it’s not quite my aesthetic, I managed to get there early enough that I got the Hall of Mirrors mostly to myself, which was delightful. Also, any day with a Bernini is a good day! Swipe for a look!

First stop in Paris: @wildandthemoon, where almost everything on the menu  is gluten-free and vegan! Tried their banana bread with cashew cream, amazing avo toast, and an activated charcoal latte (which was amazing!). Wonderful food and conversation...what a great welcome to Paris.

May is a hard month for me. The biggest losses I’ve experienced in my life have all happened in May. This month always hits me like a ton of bricks, because no matter what I do, my body remembers all the things. It just does. 
____

So I’m in Philly today practicing self-care; choosing joy instead of sitting in the numbing mind-space of the quotidian; refusing to let memory win over freedom today. I accomplish this best, I find, through distance and difference. I travel (even just a day trip) to lose myself, but also to find myself again, too. 
____

Today’s trip begins at beautiful P.S. & Co., a gluten-free vegan cafe that I adore. Here I can eat every.single.thing on the menu. Here I feel welcome, at home, normal. Need that today. Need especially this quinoa-oat waffle with cinnamon apple compote, shot glass of Lancaster maple syrup, and Inspired Brews’ orange-turmeric Kombucha. Hey, Philly. Hey.

I delighted in this beautiful macro bowl at Ceremony Coffee yesterday: arugula, quinoa, chickpeas, roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus, avocado, Hex Ferments sauerkraut, and a turmeric dressing. What a treat to find such a nourishing gf vegan bowl (no substitutions or amendments!) on the menu. And the flavor was astounding! I will definitely be back. @ceremonycoffee ftw!

In honor of Ramadan, #tbt to the stunning Blue Mosque in Istanbul almost exactly three years ago. Ramadan mubarak to those who observe it!

Swipe for glimpses of the beautiful hand-painted tiles of the vault and dome; a view into the underside of an arch from my perch against a column; and one of my favorite shops from Sultanahmet, Istanbul's Old City. Istanbul is high on my list of places I’d like to return to one day.

Easily my favorite bowl: dry roasted cauliflower with wild rice blend, steamed kale, roasted chickpeas, and garlic lemon tahini sauce. Tastes even better if the cauliflower’s purple. 😉

Finally checked out Great Sage vegan restaurant for lunch today! Tried the three bean soup and gluten-free cornbread (OMG!!), with roasted potato wedges on the side, cuz #potatoesarelife. Looooved this place so much! What a treasure. Of course I visited the infamous Roots Market next door, too. Check out my stories for a peek at that awesome market.

Taste test! Happily stumbled upon this gf and vegan chia and millet bread by @littlenorthernbakehouse in the freezer section at the market. So naturally that means pb toast for breakfast! It toasted well, had a good crunch, and tasted great! This launches pb toast back into my morning rotation! Awesome.

#tbt To the left a bit from that last photo. These were taken from the grounds of Villa la Pietra, NYU’s residence (with gardens, museum, and amazing performance spaces) just outside of Florence. They host a series of engaging cultural events and dialogues all year long, but their summer celebration of the arts is truly spectacular. One of the best Shakespeare performances I’ve ever seen was at this villa. Highly recommended.

I was so ecstatic to find vegan gluten-free cupcakes yesterday at Red Velvet Cupcakery in DC! I chose a black velvet chocolate cupcake with white “buttercream” frosting. It was perfect. This made me so happy. Thanks for thinking of gf vegans, @redvelvetcupcakery!
