A Day At Full Circle Farm Sanctuary, Burnsville, North Carolina, With Daniel!

My lovelies!

I have someone really special I would like to introduce you to this morning! His name is Daniel, an awesome ethical vegan living in Atlanta. I met Daniel at the vegan meet-ups I have been hosting (@plantbasedATL) and I have to say, his personality, joie de vivre and happiness is enough to light up a room! Daniel shared with me that he was going to visit and bring some amazing donations to Full Circle Farm Sanctuary in North Carolina this past weekend. I automatically “awe” with joy and thankfulness for his action. And of course, I had to ask him to share his experience with us! I now can’t wait to visit Full Circle Farm Sanctuary!! Will you join me?

______________________________________________________________

This past Memorial Day weekend, Penelope Persimmon Pigsworth, made my dream come true.  As a teenager in the 80’s, I read John Robbin’s Diet For A New America, and I have wanted to meet a pig ever since.  At Full Circle Farm Sanctuary, Penny and her faithful companion, Babar, showed me the time of my life.

I stumbled across Full Circle Farm Sanctuary’s Facebook page after following one of the residents, Nestor the Lovedorable Blind Goat.  Nestor, who the industry deemed invaluable and was ready to kill, now calls Full Circle Farm Sanctuary his forever home.  Full Circle was founded in 2010 by Kayla Worden.  The sanctuary is located near Burnsville, NC (outside Asheville) and is home to goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, dogs, guinea fowl, cats, and an elegant llama named Nemo. Kayla hosts volunteer work days each month, when volunteers can come help with routine chores, new projects and, of course, get to know the animals.

Two goats named Zephyr and Joshua were the first to greet us at the fence as we entered. Joshua was a bit timid at first, but he soon warmed up to us. Zephyr acted as our tour guide all day long.  This assertive and mischievous goat led us around the sanctuary; often sneaking into areas he knew he was not allowed (he loves chicken feed!).

While we helped clean the chicken coops, Kayla answered all of our questions about starting, running, and maintaining the sanctuary. Kayla described the quirky social relationships between and among the different groups of animals, their medical histories, and how they came to the sanctuary. I was particularly impressed with little Sparrow, who has managed to claim an entire coop as her own!  Ophelia the chicken was also adorable in her fashionable hen saver apron which protects hens’ back feathers from overly-amorous roosters. Kayla explained the different types of vocalizations from Noah, a resident rooster.  His “Hello, everybody! I’m HERE!” crow seemed to be the most common.

The highlight of the day was feeding everyone the produce we brought. We were able to get down and dirty with Penny and Babar next to their mud bath and throw them tomatoes and watermelon.  Babar definitely defers to Penny‘s dominance when it comes to food, so we distracted Penny with some tomatoes in order to make sure Babar got his fair share. Although they are each approximately 700 and 800 pounds respectively, they took food gently from our hands.  After lunch, I got to give Penny a belly rub, during which she happily grunted and even purred.

Before we left, we all sat on the deck and ate a delicious vegan mac ‘n cheese casserole Kayla had made.  As we drove off, I could not stop thinking about all the unique individual personalities we met that day.  I am in awe of Kayla‘s continued dedication to the animals on the sanctuary (and animals everywhere). She reminded me of how one person can make such an impact on the lives of others, human and nonhuman.

I plan to return to Full Circle Farm Sanctuary later this summer. Please “like” the sanctuary on Facebook and help out by donating time or money.

Once You Go Schmidt’s, There’s No Turning Back! Schmidt’s Deodorant Review!

Let’s face it; we all thrive to smell good. To smell good is to feel good! For me, that’s the key. If I smell good and my hair looks good, I am having a fantastic day! Now, let’s recap to the smelling good part, shall we? My quest to finding THE perfect deodorant began a few years ago…

For starter, I begin with Toms of Maine Deodorant (fyi- Tom’s is currently owned by Colgate, meany business who tests on animals), then, Jason’s Purifying Tea Tree Deodorant Stick, then, Crystal Essence Roll-On Lavender and White Tea, and Unscented. None of them gave me the results I needed, and because I am an active, and outdoorsy person, finding the perfect deodorant became crucial. You don’t want to be the one walking around all stinky, and the worst part knows that it is you because your products aren’t holding! Well, fret no more, because I found the perfect deodorant that suits me! 

Schmidt's Deodorant- All Natural, Cruelty- Free, Vegan Company Based in Portland, Oregon!

Schmidt’s Deodorant- All Natural, Cruelty- Free, and Vegan.

Schmidt’s Deodorant is the name, my dear readers. I first came across Schmidt’s Deodorant via an offer on OpenSky, and decided I’d give it a try, without any knowledge of it. Now, the reason why it took me so long to cave into Schmidt’s Deodorant was because of the application.. I was intimidated by it, yes. My brain was used to the typical roll-on and stick type deodorant and not the solid type. Well, that changed, I ordered the Lavender + Sage as my first pick… LOVELY! I can’t live without it, really! 

The application process took a little bit of time to adjust but I love it. All you need is a pea-size amount that you scoop out with the spatula, and happily rub the pea-size amount in the palm of your hand and apply to each underarm. I usually rub the excess oils from the deodorant on my arms or chest (I’ve been doing it for almost a year now, and I have not grown any chest hair). Now, all of me smell like Lavender + Sage

A Solid Korean Mexican Fusion In The Heart Of Midtown!

Takorea is the name, Sesame Fries is the gold! Yes, you’ve read right, Sesame Fries, my readers. I don’t know how they do it, but I do know they are anything I have ever had, delicious, the perfect balance between sweet & tangy and 100% vegan-friendly! Need I say more?

Sesame Fries At Takorea!

Sesame Fries At Takorea!

I mean, just look at them, so inviting and foreign. I don’t know what my life was before them! Speaking from a traveling foodie, these fries are worth any trip! Takorea proudly offers a Vegetarian/Vegan friendly menu for us to indulge in every day. From Takos to Fries, to Burritos and Bimim, this Mexican-Korean fusion is one we can’t miss because they don’t mess around! If you’re into spicy food, this place is for you! The Korean red sauce is absolutely amazing. But, you may need a few glasses of water to cool down! That’s the whole point, right? Although I can’t entirely remember the name, I can confirm that it is 100% Vegan and contains no traces of fish sauce (I read the ingredient list).

The Takos were simple, and I am one for simplicity. I don’t like a lot in my tacos and truth be told, they didn’t need anything else- Lettuce, Cabbage, Onions, and Cilantro tossed in a Soy Sesame Vinaigrette; I’ve enjoyed them both! Up next, the Sesame Fries, oh wait, we’ve already talked about them! Well, here’s another picture for you to drool in, thank me later!

Now for another jewel- the Tofu Burrito, again, the same filling as the takos but this time wrapped in a flour tortilla! I personally loved this tofu burrito. If I may be bold, I like it better than your average chain hype- Chipotle (#sorrynotsorry)! It must be the Korean red sauce! :)

First off, it was very caliente! I enjoyed the Korean-Mexican taste it offered. The rice was cooked to perfection. Almost like how the sushi rice feels and taste like. The tofu was well cooked, and had a bit of a crunch. Everything complimented this burrito. Of course I had to drink of a few glasses of water to turn down the heat (4) but it was well worth it. After all, I couldn’t expect any less from a Korean-Mexican fusion!

Finding Gyro At Wrecking Bar Brewpub!

Alright, I may have been a tad bit late on my visit to Wrecking Bar Brewpub, I’ll agree! A few of my friends have mentioned this place to me before, but I guess timing had something to do with it, eh? I’ll say I am glad I had the chance to go and grub! Okay, their fries… best! That’s all! I am very picky when it comes to fries, some may call me a “French Fries Connoisseur“. I live up to my name! I don’t mess around! The one thing I was told to try right away was the Seitan Veggie Gyro which ladies and gents, contains 34g of protein! Who said vegans can’t get enough protein again? Um, I guess you’ve never had a Seitan Veggie Gyro from Wrecking Bar before!

Now, when I first heard of a gyro, my first impression was going to be messy, dripping and bring on the napkins! I mean, that’s how I’ve had them back in Montreal! I can’t lie, this gyro intimidated me! Why? Because, it was so well presented and not the messy bunch I was expecting! Nevertheless, it was good! The Seitan is house-made and so is the Tzatziki sauce. The Veggie Seitan Gyro was served on House Pita, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, and Tzatziki Sauce. The perfect combination! With just enough salted pepper! I would love to eat the Seitan as a burger option. I wonder if that could possibly be a thing. 

Oh My Fries!!!!- Wrecking Bar

Oh My Fries!!!!- Wrecking Bar

Now, those fries, right? Well, I can’t explain it. They aren’t your typical frozen fries. They are hearty, full, and tastes like a winning fries! It’s hard to explain, it is one of those things you just have to go experience yourself! You’ll never look at steak fries the same, guaranteed! 

Word is Wrecking Bar offers Vegetarian menu on Tuesday! I will make sure to return and report to you all! Anything to get a taste at those fries again!

A Kicking Taste In Vegan Wingz At The Barrelhouse!

From Nachos to hot  Ramblin’ Wrap, or even just a finger lickin’ basket of Vegan Wingz, The Barrelhouse is the place to go! The Barrelhouse, located in Midtown in Atlanta offers different vegan-friendly options for us to indulge in! There are many different items on the menu that you can substitute the vegan wingz in! How tasty, eh? I have to say, I am in love with their Sweet Thai Chili sauce- finger lickin’ good! 

Sweet Thai Chili Vegan Wingz Served With Steak Fries And Vegan Ranch!

Now, when I said you could substitute a few things, I didn’t only mean sandwiches- nachos included! Please, skip the cheeze, no need for it! The nachos consisted of Pico De Gallo, Fresh Jalapeno, and topped with Avocado. Spicy, of course I expected no less! The added avocado helped the burn! I really enjoyed these nachos! I am not one for vegan cheese too much so this was perfect! Trust me when I say you won’t need it!

This wrap was great for one than more reason. First off, they make their own Vegan Ranch, kudos! Second of all, it is absolutely creamy! Third of all, mix it all up with Buffalo Vegan Wingz and you’ve got a masterpiece! This Ramblin’ Wrap got me ramblin’ alright!

So, the point here, if you are in the mood for some vegan wingz, The Barrelhouse is the place to go! Not only are they the only restaurant in Atlanta (Aside sister, Graveyard) with vegan wingz but they are also one of the best I’ve had! I am very thankful of The Barrelhouse offering these options daily! Stop by and have a taste for yourself, I promise you’ll thank me later!

** I am happy to report that I had the chance to host a “Vegan Wingz Meet-Up” here at The Barrelhouse this month! It was an amazing turn out and the review will be live tomorrow, stay tuned! **

Ria’s Bluebird Offers The Ultimate Bionic Breakfast!

Off to meet my friend K for some bike rides and nomz, we decided to check out Ria’s Bluebird in Grant Park for some fuel! I was excited with this choice because I had never visited Ria’s Bluebird and the Bionic Breakfast sounded way too good to pass up!

This delicious bowl consisted of a Mountain of Skillet Potatoes with Sautéed Mushrooms, Zucchini, And Red & Poblano Peppers, topped with Spicy Tofu Sauce! Of course, being the glutton that I am, I had to order a side of Avocado and Spicy Tofu Cubes with that! Again, it was my first time trying out this place and I thought, “Why not go all out?”

Where to start? Can I have this every day? The Bionic Breakfast offered everything I wished for, and more! The Spicy Tofu Sauce was amazing and as you can see, I even added more Sriracha to it, because Sriracha! The skillet potatoes were cooked to perfection, and well-seasoned! The serving was huge! I didn’t think I would finish it all off, okay, I did! ;) And I will proudly say that! The Spicy Tofu Sauce consisted of well, Sriracha and Tofu! Why hadn’t I thought of that before? Clever! The side of Spicy Tofu Cubes was delicious, crispy and perfectly seasoned. Not too salty, just the right kick! Overall, my experience at Ria’s Bluebird well overpasses!

Everything was delicious and our server was a doll! I can’t wait return and indulge! Ria’s Bluebird offers vegan-friendly options, if you have questions, feel free to ask the staff, they are more than welcome to help!
