We were on a journey. One that would take us through sacred ancient temples, cliff side trails, breathtaking beaches and miles of rice paddies. Our days were spent seeing, searching, exploring new worlds, including each other. Once we had made it to Ubud after the longest day of traveling, we locked ourselves in our little Balinese cottage for the night. We had 10 days there and our schedule was jam packed, so we took the night to do nothing at all other than hold each other under the moonlight that was dripping through the window.

Before heading to Ubud, we were told, “you HAVE to try Sage” more than a handful of times, so we were very excited for our lunch at this popular plant based restaurant, and even more excited to sit down with the owner to chat about how it all began, life in Bali and what’s next for the restaurant known for its vibrant vegan cuisine.

The tastes of Thailand are what I long for most, after having spent a month in the beautiful country earlier this summer. I loved how easily accessible it was to find delicious vegan and vegetarian fare no matter where I was. What a gift and a surprise to find the flavors of northern Thailand on the shores of the Philippines, in the little town of El Nido.

We were coming off an amazing couple of days exploring Nusa Pedina. The island was one of the most beautiful we’d ever seen, and we spent long days driving on crazy dirt roads, climbing down cliff sides to deserted beaches and spending one afternoon searching for the drone after it crashed into a mountain. Needless to say, we were exhausted and our diet had been consisting of mainly authentic Indonesian dishes, so tons of rice and noodles, and we were craving something FRESH. Daydreaming of smoothies, juices, maybe even a salad or some simple sautéed vegetables.. little did we know, our dreams were about to come true. Ginger and JamuRead More
