What’s Vegan at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)?

My partner and I travel quite a bit. This past Christmas vacation was my first travelling experience being Vegan. During the time I was vegetarian, finding food when I was out was never an issue. I really didn’t need to research food options before going anywhere. Being vegan has been a different story. It can be fairly stressful to be somewhere new, starving, and have to search for something you can eat. Before I left for the airport this trip, I quickly searched online for what my options would be at the airport ( I anxiety eat, I hate flying) I found 1 or 2 places I knew, and figured that would suffice-well it wasn’t. I forgot that we wouldn’t have access to all terminals. As well, the 2 places I found were located before customs. We raced to check in, went through customs and realized that we were now going to starve. Well, not quite but it felt like that at the time. So back online I went.

You begin to trust your intuition again. You begin to see the things you have in common with people instead of only seeing their differences. You begin to empathize with strangers, with all living beings. You begin to feel more deeply, and not be afraid of those emotions. You begin to respect yourself as well as the world around you. You don’t take yourself, your body or others for granted. Going through this major life change has been the most important thing I’ve done thus far. I feel incredibly grateful for this journey that, at the beginning was bit of an emotional rollercoaster. I am starting this blog to share what I’ve learned as I feel like its my duty to pass these things along. When I first went vegan I admit, I was worried I would be living a very […]
