Melissa Bastian's blog in which to expound upon the vegan wonders held by New York City, rage about the absurdities of the food industry, explore the emotional difficulties that sometimes accompany food and the act of eating in general... and write about whatever else seems pertinent to this vegan life.
vegan in new orleans, hurrah. i was born in a storm, and raised in one too. and then one named katrina changed my life. i have a hard time saying where i'm from, but i can tell you for sure that my heart and my home are in new orleans, the place where i wasn't born. i left there after nine years not knowing what i had - what's that old cliche? now i've returned with a better appreciation. in the interim, i spent 5.5 years in nyc riding the subway and taking pictures. i get by with a husband who loves to drive me crazy, four rescued rabbits, and one rescued monster who thinks himself a cat.
