Greene Street Market

My first trip to the Greene Street Market this year was a success! Strawberry smell wafting through the air (they tasted just as good as they smelled), mingling with local music greets and draws you into the market. From cupcakes to hummus, fresh produce aren't the only plant-based options you'll find. Learn more about the vegan offerings at the Market on this v-blog with special help from my dogs.

Cinco De Mayo - Crave Heat and Humphrey's

Last Monday was Cinco de Mayo, and Downtown Huntsville, especially Humphrey's Bar and Grill, held a margarita fueled event. From a margarita making contest, to pinatas, to lively decor of papel picado Humphrey's had it going on!

While I was sure to enjoy their margaritas, I was also looking to enjoy some food while I was there. I heard Crave Heat, one of our local food trucks, was going to have more traditional Mexican foods on their menu, so I decided it was time to try to procure some vegan food from a food truck. They are not very easy to navigate for vegetarians, let alone vegans.

Enjoy my slightly campy v-blog review of their veggie burrito, beginning with some video of the party at Humphrey's and some of their very colorful tortilla chips:

To sum up-
  • Super tasty!
  • Flavorful beans, rice, and grilled veggies wrapped in a fantastically flaky handmade tortilla
  • Slightly salty for healthfood eater
  • Order carefully, explaining that you want cheese and sour cream left off
  • Long wait, don't be in a hurry
  • Friendly staff
  • TMNT game
  • May be carrying veg chorizo in the future
  • Buy local!

Coming Soon!

Hi there, I'm just getting everything set up but soon I'll  be your guide to tasty places to eat out and shop in the Huntsville, Alabama area. Huntsville's dining options are better than you think.

Whatever your reason for going vegan or eating plant based - health, environmental impact, global impact, allergies, or animal rights, you'll find great information here. I'll help you find those hidden items on the menu and locate the best shopping deals.

Are you a business owner looking to advertise what you have to offer vegans in this area? Comment here or find me on social media. I'd love to feature you...and I do take bribes of free food :)
