This Week: Vegan Food & Travel Round-Up

This week (12 December 2015)

The Vegan Word at Home & Around the Web

The paperback of my book is out! The Essential Vegan Travel Guide is a how-to guide showing you how to have a stress-free, meat-free vacation ANYWHERE in the world.  As Kyra at Vie de la Vegan said in her review the book “is inexpensive (about the price of a takeout pizza), but when you consider how stress-free this book will make your next holiday; it is priceless!”  Buy now on Amazon: http://geni.us/3i8F

A Vegan Guide to Berlin: 48 Hours is up. What to eat if you only have 2 days in one of the most vegan-friendly cities in the world.  (Don’t worry, I made a ranking algorithm of the best vegan restaurants & cafes in the city!)

Review and interview about The Essential Vegan Travel Guide now live on Vie de la Vegan. Kyra on my book: “I was incredibly excited about how potentially life-changing this book could be! The Essential Vegan Travel Guide is packed with travel tips for vegans to ensure you won’t starve while travelling, and you won’t have to resort to eating animal products either ;) and the best thing is, Caitlin’s methods can be applied to ANY travel destination!”

We kicked off our blog tour:
You can enter the competition for your chance to win a copy of my book until the 17th of December!  Read the post here for information on how to enter.

I’ll be appearing on Go Vegan radio Sunday, the 13th of December (the show airs every Sunday 5-6pm Pacific time) to talk about my book. More information on how to tune in or catch up on the podcast here.

Food

Thai butternut squash soup: butternut squash soup is a perfect warming autumn/winter soup, and I imagine the addition of Thai curry paste and coconut milk would be the perfect addition.  Get the recipe on Harriet Emily.

Eggnog Mexican hot chocolate: forget Starbucks (their eggnog latte isn’t vegan) and make a festive hot cocoa with this recipe from Fork and Beans instead.

Vegan cookbook holiday gift guide: wondering what to get the vegan in your life? Or wondering which cookbooks are best? Check out this guide on Olives for Dinner. I’d also add one of my favourites this year, The Homemade Vegan Pantry by Miyoko Schinner – lots of recipes for making your own pantry staples, from vegan Worcestershire sauce to vegan butter to vegan mac & cheese mix!

Not your typical December dish, but these papaya salad rolls are so beautiful and colourful I can’t resist. Perfect for a lighter meal.  Check them out on The First Mess.

What would you do if you got a non-vegan Christmas present? Cadry of Cadry’s Kitchen has a beautiful way of handling potentially awkward situations, and here she’ll show you how to a) prevent anyone giving you non-vegan gifts and b) what to do if you do end up getting any.

Travel

Favourite new travel destinations of 2015. Adventurous Kate is an amazing travel blogger and incredibly well-travelled, as you might imagine, so her travel tips are excellent. Here, she lists her favourite new travel destinations this year.

What do you do when the weather isn’t in your favour on your travels? You should embrace it, as Brenna from This Battered Suitcase shows here, with her photo series on umbrellas in Bergamo during her rainy trip to Italy.

Vegan food in Bucharest, Romania on Veggie Visa. I loved Transylvania, Romania, and found it to be one of the most surprisingly vegan-friendly destinations I’ve been to and my article on Romania will be featured in the next edition of Driftwood magazine (I went during Lent, when most restaurants offer a vegan Lenten menu) but I didn’t spend much time in Bucharest.

Vegan guide to Istanbul, Turkey, on Mostly Amelie.  Just look at those spices in the markets!
