Virtuous Pie is a vegan pizzeria Vancouver’s Chinatown at 583 Main Street next to Juniper on Keefer Street. It offers 100% plant based pizzas made with nut cheeses (cashews, almonds and soy). It also includes a selection of nice creams (vegan ice cream) and salads. Gluten free dough options are also available. It’s opening night and I’m don’t miss my greasy meat lover pizza one bit!

For the first time in a long time, my vegan meat-free pizza does not taste like cardboard. In fact, it is pretty tasty. Flavors, textures, aromas, not one thing is missing. I’m pretty sure if I didn’t tell you it was vegan you would even notice it was plant base! Best of all, that nut cheese doesn’t upset my stomach. For those who are lactose intolerant, this is a really great option!

Warby Parker Toronto Canada Eyeglass Optical Store Opens Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Warby Parker is coming to Toronto, Canada. The first Warby Parker Canadian store opens at 684 Queen Street West on Saturday, August 6th. No doubt I love online shopping! Pretty boxes mailed directly to my home and I barely even need to lift a finger! Free from crowds and disappointments that they don’t carry my size.

Shopping for glasses seems a little difference however. It’s always hard to know the fit (size and style) of a pair of eyeglasses until it rests comfortably on your face. Warby Parker promises beautiful designed optical eyewear online without the overhead costs of middleman.

I am lucky for an Asian woman to have a higher nose-bridge and do not normally struggle with plastic frames sliding off.

Ford Canada invited us over the weekend for their first ever Ford Escape Kale Gate Party. We were picked up in the new ingeniously equipped Ford‎ Escape 2017 and whisked away to the top of Grouse Mountain in the North Shore Mountains of the Pacific Ranges.

Ford Escape comes in three models, basic S, and SE and Titanium with EcoBoost engine. The ride was smooth and the heated front seats was nice given it was typical Vancouver weather complete with down-pouring rain!

Although it was raining, foggy with limited visions; the view of the tree canopy of the Pacific Northwest is still breathtaking.

There was The Juicery Co’s green juices, Kondi Kitchen kale salads and barbecues to fuel us up.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”No Line”][vc_column_text]

#instagramhusband eating kale salads back of a new Escape is how you do #kalegateparty! We especially enjoyed the foot-activated hands-free power liftgate and the panoramic Vista roof. It makes carpool karaoke that much more enjoyable!

Since we are also considering buying a new SUV, the Ford Escape is one serious contenders. I especially love the remote engine start they are offering. Base model starts at just 25,099 CAD.
