Sadie’s Diner and Juice Bar – Toronto, Canada

Sadie’s Diner and Juice Bar Toronto Canada My first thoughts meeting Adam were: A boy vegan?  You exist? You’re… real? Realistically, of course I knew that there were male vegans, but I’d never met one, so the concept was still mythical beast territory then. Adam and I decided to grab some dinner on Easter Monday at Sadie’s […]

Live Organic Raw Food – Toronto, Canada

Raw food can strike fear in the heart of your average person. It sounds a bit scary, doesn’t it? But raw food is very non-confrontational. If you like salads and vegetables, and you already eat a balanced and healthy diet, many of your daily meals are probably already raw and you just don’t know it. […]

Recipe Wednesday: Chickpea and Beetroot Salad

I like fast salads for lunch that are packed with protein and bright colours. Like the warm lentil, spinach and tomato salad, this chickpea and beetroot salad is another 10 to 15 minute job that you can make from scratch if you use canned chickpeas and beetroot. If you want to soak dry chickpeas overnight […]

Hoover Dam – Las Vegas, Nevada

There is more to Las Vegas than gambling, drinking, shows (and show girls), and more gambling, and more drinking and more show girls. Hoover Dam, previously called Boulder Dam, sits in the Black Canyon (part of the Colorado River) on the border of Arizona and Nevada. And it’s a major tourist attraction, with almost one million […]

Native Foods Cafe – Newport Beach, California

It’s rare that the Nomads eat at a restaurant that has a wide range of choices for South Nomad. Usually it’s chips, or garden salad, or one menu item without the cheese, or eggs, or the dressing (or without the meat, in the worst cases). On the rare occasion we do visit a restaurant or […]

Recipe Wednesday: Caramelised Onions

This recipe is so simple, but a little time intensive. It makes any sandwich, wrap or burger tastier, so it’s worth the effort. Ingredients 2-3 onions. It seems like a lot, but they cook down to next to nothing. 2 tbsps of olive oil, canola oil, or Earth Balance Butter. 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar. […]

Shark & Ray Snorkelling Tour – Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Ever seen a muscular French Polynesian man make out with a sting ray? We have! The resorts at Bora Bora have a variety of water based activities and sports for their clientele to enjoy. We chose the Snorkel Safari group tour with Moana Tours. If you’re staying on the main island, Moana Tours can pick you up […]

Art & About in Toronto, Canada

What Identifies a City? The Nomads visited New York in 2012. It was a seriously fun trip, but I was somewhat bemused by the city itself. This was the city everyone raved up?  Sure, there’s lots of stuff do. And there’s the culture. Everyone will remind you of “the culture”. But…it’s just a city. When […]

Recipe Wednesday: Roasted Cornish Hen, Cheesy Mashed Potato & Grilled Spicy Corn

  A meat recipe, finally! you say. Yes, North Nomad is as much an avid omnivore/carnivore as I am the exact opposite. And being a nice wife, I still cook meat for him every day. Many vegetarians and vegans don’t understand why I do this. His health is important to me and if I didn’t cook […]
