It’s a long weekend! Who needed this? (Raises hand)

I’m eternally grateful for all of the excitement in my life lately (and no, nothing too unique or secret, just a lot of work, action at the dance studio and fun with family) but damn, I need a few days to put my feet up. Things aren’t about to get any less busy — we’ve got Upfronts in the first week of June, then recital in the last week! That’s part of why I’m watching my diet for the moment; I don’t want to fall into easy vices like sugary snacks and alcohol.

The good thing is, it’s a long weekend, so it’s a great opportunity to nourish yourself with food that is wholesome but still fun. Colourful. And vegan, of course!

I’ve gathered 20 of my favourite vegan food items for your long weekend party from around the web — including some of my own. Check it out!
