Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

I commit to eating ethically…


I don’t want to kill animals anymore but I love meat. OK that’s not completely true… I think it’s OK to kill animals, just not in the mass torturous way that we do. Most livestock are never given a life… just stand in a cage until it’s time to be slaughtered. I’m not going to get into the horrifying inhumane ways livestock are treated but if you are interested check out CETFA. It’s insanely wrong and I don’t want to be a part of it… but I need meat.

So I’ve done a little research to help me out. Where can I get a burger in the Vancouver area and not feel so bad? Where can I get some deli meat for a turkey wrap? I eat out a lot… which restaurants should I sway my friends towards next weekend? I know I’ve just scratched the surface but here’s what I’ve found so far:

At the grocery store:

McLean deli meats (available at IGA, Capers, thrifty foods, whole foods, Planet Organic, Small Potatoes food delivery, Stongs, Nester’s Market, Save on Foods, Famous Foods, check their website for locations outside Vancouver)

Pemberton Meadow meats (available IGA Whistler, Copper Cup Squamish, Sebastien & Co. West Vancouver, Wheelhouse Seafood & Specialty Meat East Hastings, East End Co-op Commercial Drive, SPUD Home Delivery)

Eating out:

Ethical Kitchen North Vancouver
Controversial Kitchen Commercial Drive Vancouver
West Granville Street Vancouver
Raincity Grill English Bay Vancouver
Chill Winston Gastown
The Cascade Room Main Street
Wild Rice Pender and Abbott
Bishop’s Fine Dining 4th Ave
Araxi Whistler
Alibi Room Alexander St
The Whip Gallery Main Street
Habit Lounge Main Street
Cibo Seymour Street
O’Douls at the Listel Hotel Robson Street
Cin Cin Robson Street
Century Plaza Hotel Burrard Street
Howe Sound Brew Pub Squamish
Bearfoot Bistro Whistler
La Rua Whistler
The Meadow’s Golf Club Pemberton
Savoury Chef Catering

So this is what I found doing a quick Internet search. Now I plan on doing some on-the-ground research/eating. I want to find more casual dining and burger options. Let me know if you have any suggestions and I’ll update when I know more.

    Vera Burgers has an organic meat option. Good that it gives the consumer the choice, but would be even better if they set an ethical example and all the burger meat was organic…

Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead
Our cabin in #smithers was one of the many highlights on @route16_ca A view of #hudsonbaymountain and an adorable cabin in the woods... #explorebc #motorcycleroadtrip #motorcycle #roadtrip #route16 #travelnorthernbc #cabininthewoods
A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
