Vegetarian for 20 years, gluten-free for four, I’m a proud Detroiter and Michigan native. What started as a food blog has evolved into both a travel and food blog— and I sometimes write about food in literature, as well. I’ve lived in the countries Czech Republic, Poland and Turkey, and Michigan, New Mexico, California and Hawai’i.
One aim with this blog is to be a clearing house for all things vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free in and around Michigan, with a focus on the Detroit area. I try and highlight local businesses and products, though I do review national brands here as well. Whether you’re looking for a good veggie-friendly restaurant or a good grocery store in greater Detroit, this is the place to be.
While I ain’t a perfect cook, I do love trying new recipes and making a mess of my kitchen— and I like to try and recreate the meals I’ve had while traveling, be it in Hawai’i or Turkey. Other times, I try to adapt food I’ve had in diners or restaurants across Detroit, like Arabic, Polish or Greek dishes. All recipes are vegetarian and gluten-free! I like to try and make vegan dishes as well.
Even while I’m overseas, my Facebook page will have vegetarian and gluten-free news from the greater metro Detroit area. You can also find some of my restaurant reviews for places in Europe on Trip Advisor and in the Metro Times.
