Foodcation - Portland, OR

So I went on a foodcation - to vegetarian food heaven, also known as Portland, Oregon. Never has it been so easy to be a soy free vegan (well mostly vegan). Everywhere you they have vegan options, gluten free options, etc. Even my four travel companions, all meat eaters, were happy with the vegan options that I purchased and the few vegan restaurants that we went to.

Voodoo Doughnuts - Although I was underwhelmed by their regular chocolate and maple, the vegan peanut butter oreo doughnut was freaking AMAZING!

Prasad - This is a vegan, raw, restaurants that is next to a yoga studio. They have cooked and raw food all of which was amazing.

Cocotte - So if you want a fancy restaurant this is the one. They have a couple of vegetarian options. The vegan option, a stuffed squash was just okay, but the prices were not too bad and the meat eaters in the group were obsessed with their food.

Petunia's Pies - Vegan cakes and pies, lots of gluten free options and they all taste amazing!

Everywhere you go in Portland there are food carts, so we ate at a ton of those. The above are essentially the only sit down restaurants that we tried. The food carts pretty much all had vegan options as well. It has never been so easy eating green!
