Noémie

Vegan Blogger

My goal is to show that vegan food can look as good as any other food. Lots of people think that when you’re vegan you just eat salad. But it can really be so much fun! I’m really fond of Asian food, pasta and pizza, so why not make them healthier with a veggie based sauce? Once you get the idea that you can create your usual meal in a vegan mood, it becomes a fun challenge and practically anything is possible: pancakes, purées, fries, gyoza, veggie burgers, even vegan cheese!

Is Paris for Singles? You Bet...

While Paris is known for romance and as being the City of Light, that same light shines on solo travelers too. After the Eiffel Tower, past the Louvre, the nights in Paris are as social as it gets. Latin beat at Barrio Latino, to Americanized beer fun at Frog & British Library, Paris offers the businessman or player a perfect canvas to paint fun onto. Be sure and investigate Cafe de la Danse, and take a dip at La Piscine Josephine Baker to mention two more.
