We’re giving Mom a vegan food tour of LA and we’d be remissed if we didn’t stop by @krimseys . Today we split a Looziana Sampler and this gorgeous Taste of Nola plate with collards, jambalaya, and cornbread. This place never disappoints. 💕
...a tender kind of love ❤️ Can one really call it a Vegan Sunday if one does not smash some chick’n from @lettucefeastla ?! 🤔 These new tenders are bomb 💣 , y’all. AND, they’re testing out some secret new dipping sauces that are fire! 🤫 This place just keeps getting better and better and they always deliver a meal that exceeds expectations.
The Weekender 🤤😍🙏🏻👊🏻🔥
Can someone please bring me more of this stuffed french toast from @cocobellacreamery ?! The light orange cream between these dense but fluffy pieces of perfectly cooked toast is truly a dream made into reality.
I’m too sick to eat one of these tonight but I was able to get in this epic sundae last night. What you’re looking at is 3 layers of @cocobellacreamery ice cream, a drizzle of their salted caramel sauce, @so_delicious Coco Whip, and crushed macadamia nuts we brought back from Kaua’i. It was bomb, y’all! Ice cream flavors are Cookie Monsta, Matcha Raspberry Cheesecake, and Coffee Chip.
Tradition redone. This time last year we were cheering for the Dawgs against OU in Pasedena. This year we’re at home getting ready to watch our boys play in the Sugar Bowl. To ring in the new year and to send luck to Louisiana we made Beyond Sausages, stuffed them into pretzel buns, and topped with with collard greens and black eyed peas. We added fresh garlic and @sweetearthfoods Benevolent Bacon.

I ended up taking today off work but I still had to drive to the office to grab my laptop so we decided to swing into @montysgoodburger on the way home. It’s probably not the best food to cure my cold but it sure as hell heals the soul! We got a single, a double, 2 strawberry shakes, and fries ALL THE WAY! 😋
If you’re on the gorgeous island of Kaua’i and you’re looking for a refreshing drink then get your butt over to @potions.kombucha.kauai for their Kombucha on tap! I got the chocolate pepper flavor and the Goob King got the fruit cocktail flavor. We also sampled the other 2 flavors they had on tap and all of them were fire 🔥!
Kaua’i was full of hidden vegan gems including these apple/banana lumpia’s we found at a fruit stand near Waimea Canyon. The girls working the stand said their mom makes them fresh everyday and not only are they vegan, they’re also gluten free. Most importantly, they’re the BOMB 💣 We snagged 2 bags of these and a whole bunch of fruit (as demonstrated by the Goob King in the next photo).
Yesterday we hit up one of Kauai’s all vegan spots, @eathealthykauai in Kapaa. Hands down best meal of the trip so far! I got the Tex Mex Benedict and a Not So Sleeping Giant Coffee but there were so many other yummy things on the menu too. I’m convinced you can’t go wrong with anything you order here!
After a crazy 7 mile hike through Koke’e State Park we were all STARVING! Luckily we had to pass through Poipu on the way back to the hotel and I knew the perfect place to stop. Puka Dog has a unique take on the hot dog adding your choice of fruity relishes and Hawaiian mustard to a veggie dog stuffed into a Hawaiian-style roll. To order vegan here get the veggie dog, skip the garlic sauce (it contains butter), then load up on relish and mustard. I got pineapple relish on mine! 🤤 This is a must stop place if you’re on the beautiful island of Kauai!
Yesterday, at the bottom of the most beautiful waterfall creating the most perfect rainbow 🌈 surrounded by people I love the Goob King asked me to be his Goob Queen forever. You are my best friend and with you I am the best version of myself. Thank you for loving me and for making me the happiest girl in the world. Thank you to @jakemparrish @cloudmix & @medical_matt22 for helping @myoungquest pull off the most amazing proposal OF ALL TIME! ❤️ #foreveryoungquest
This island has no shortage of smoothie bowl stands. We found this açaí bowl at a little place next to a Food Lane. We got ours without honey on top. This made for a super refreshing snack after a long day at the beach. Today we start adventure day 2 and I can’t wait to see what we find!
The very first thing we did on our trip to Kaua’i was hit up @papayasnaturalfoods for some groceries and fresh grub. We got this bomb 💣tempeh wrap with a major wasabi punch 🤛 Then we stopped at a random cliff to eat it and take in the awesomeness that is the Garden Isle. 😍
Double the patties = double the fun! @myoungquest ordered this bad boy from @lettucefeastla a few weeks ago and it might be one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Just look at that drip! 🤤 These chick’n magicians are supposed to have a new menu item tomorrow and we can’t wait to see what it is!
I’m usually pretty skeptical about Asian food because it’s not really my favorite genre of food. That said, @veganstreetfair convinced us to give @maneatingplantla a try and I’m glad I did! These garlic noods had a really nice flavor and the micro greens on top added a freshness to the dish. Super yummy! I would totally eat these again.
