Cool Beans Taco Truck – Austin, TX

Cool Beans Taco Truck - Austin, TX

Out of all of the over 1200 food trucks and counting in Austin, Cool Beans is one of the most recent and quickly becoming my favorite. Cool Beans is a completely organic and vegan food truck located on the east side of Austin. Their menu is comprised of Tex-Mex goodness, with their signature tacos being the front-runners of what they have to offer.

We vegans are getting more and more lucky here in Austin, as there are several food trucks and restaurants that offer an all-vegan menu, as well as many restaurants that happily offer a vegan menu alongside their regular menu. What’s great about the vegan community is that there is no competition between the restaurants and/or food trucks. They all support each other because everyone knows that there needs to be more healthy and animal-loving businesses out there. In fact, I found out about Cool Beans because of another vegan restaurant promoting them on Facebook.

Cool Beans has THE best tacos. The Native Taco is my favorite, probably because of the amazing grilled pineapple on top. Yum! I love that they have a tamale of the month as well as a soup of the month. I love getting to sample new menu items from a restaurant that I trust!

Even if you aren’t vegan, this is just a great and terribly tasty way to go meatless for a day (or even just a meal). Cool Beans will convince you that you don’t need animal products for something to taste good!

Honolulu is a great city for dog lovers. When on vacation with your pooch in Hawaii’s state capital, it’s important to know the places where dogs are welcomed, and better yet, the places that you and your dog can enjoy together.

Rock Climbing at Enchanted Rock – Fredericksburg, TX

Rock Climbing at Enchanted Rock - Fredericksburg, TX

Almost exactly 6 years ago, I had my bachelorette party. Since I’m not much of a partier, I wanted to have a different type of bachelorette party. So instead, we went to Enchanted Rock, a nearby state park in Fredericksburg, Texas, and went rock climbing. Only half of the girls I had with me had ever been, so I thought it would be a fun idea.
