Kristin spent 18 months travelling the US in a van searching out and eating at vegan restaurants everywhere she went. All the while she journaled about it at her website Will Travel for Vegan Food. Here is her summary in her words:
I’m serious about this travel thing. In fact, in 2011 I completely adjusted my lifestyle in an effort to work exclusively online, so that I can work from virtually anywhere.
In January 2011 I left a wonderful full-time job with an amazing animal welfare organization so that I could pursue the art of food and travel discovery.
In order to support this mission I started my own freelance business and now earn a living teaching others how to build businesses, market and promote their work, and general badassery.
Ever wondered how we stay for fresh and so clean? We shower with fresh water of course! The problem is that we only have a 40 gallon tank and we average about 7 gallons per day between the two of us. So at best we are only gonna make it a little over 5 days before we need more water. Rather than hook the trailer up once a week we fill our 7 gallon water jugs and pour them into the tank. After 6 months on the road we have a pretty good system for pouring it in.
Made a short video of Aeropress Instructions in our travel trailer:
You can buy them on Amazon: Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker Aeropress Instructions are as varied as the weather. The basic instructions do a good job but we have found that stirring the grounds a bit more makes for a better cup of coffee.
Amongst the many great aspects of being married to Kate Grass is that she loves comfort food. An additional plus is that she loves cooking comfort food. One more plus on top of the prior plus is that she has figured out how to convert many comfort food recipes into vegan equivalents. In the case of this recipe she did it with biscuits and gravy.
Biscuits & Gravy for Two
3/4 cup biscuit mix
1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
Mix everything up and portion out 4 biscuits on a cooking pan. Bake at 450F for approx 10 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom.
1/2 package Gimme Lean ground sausage
1 tbsp oil for browning
1 tbsp vegan margarine (Earth Balance or Smart Balance)
1 tbsp flour
1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
1 tbsp corn starch
salt and pepper to taste
* Add or adjust milk and flour/corn starch for desired consistency
Brown the sausage in a medium sauce pan leaving whatever sticks to the bottom of the pan. Remove browned sausage to a bowl and add margarine to deglaze the pan. Add flour and stir until a paste or roux forms then slowly add non-dairy milk stiring with a whisk until everything incorporates. Turn up the heat and continue stirring to get all the bits stuck on the bottom of the pan off. Add the corn starch and continue stirring until the gravy is as thick as you want it to be. Add the sausage back and mix together.
Cut biscuits in half and place two on a plate. Cover in the gravy. Sit. Eat. Enjoy.
