How To Be A Vegan In Fort Collins, CO

What is a vegan diet? Vegan diets exclude meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy. Seems like a lot to cut out of your diet but it just leaves you with what I call, "the good stuff" such as: fruit, vegetables, soy products, legumes, lentils, nuts, seeds and whole grains. When you cut meat out of a menu you really have to start getting creative with your meals, but that’s the best part of having a vegan diet, using your imagination with your taste buds as your assistant. Sometimes dining out can be a little tricky but luckily for us Colorado State Rams, Fort Collins, CO has an abundance of completely vegan or vegan friendly restaurants.

Tasty Harmony

130 S Mason St

If I were to judge, Tasty Harmony would be number one on my list of vegan restaurants in Fort Collins. Their menu gets more and more creative as you go down the list. A starter of Nachos de Ynez that includes; their homemade cashew cheese, black beans, guacamole, vegan sour cream, and salsa layered on top of a bed of corn chips and then you can add (I truly recommend) the BBQ style jackfruit. Tasty Harmony is a bit pricey which is why I would suggest you split an appetizer or maybe two since their Seitan Hot Wings compliment the Nachos extremely well.


212 W Laurel St

For breakfast hop on over and endour a slice of vegan coffee cake and/or a Rainbow favorite, Scramled tofu, seasoned tofu and vegetables scrambled together, served with grilled potatoes and toast. If you don’t have time for breakfast, Rainbow offers a variety of vegan lunch choices from soups and salads to sandwiches and pastas.

Dam Good Tacos

120 ½ W Laurel St

$3 dollars for a delicious vegan taco such as their Earth, Wind & Fire; consisting of tofu, sweet potato puree, organic kale, slide almonds, and tomato ginger sauce or their Tofu Thai Taco with marinated tofu, coconut peanut sauce, pickled carrot cabbage slaw, and diced cucumbers. If you’re in a spicy mood, enjoy their Spicy Chocolate Horchata made with organic coconut milk, ginger, raw cacoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, cayenne, chili, jalapeno, and brown sugar.

Beau Jo’s

205 N College Ave

Sometimes you need a little comfort food and what’s better than some mountain style pizza? Beau Jo’s offers vegan cheese for your dietary needs.

Empire Palace

2721 S College Ave

Personally I love Asian cuisine and as long as you request for no fish sauce in any of your dishes, your meal can easily become vegan. At Empire a great start to your meal can be with some Vegetable Egg Rolls or Vegetarian Dumplings (pot stickers). For your main dish I’d suggest the Orange Flavor Bean Curd or Pad Thai without egg.

The Elizabeth Triangle of Falafel


1401 W Elizabeth St

Petra Grill

1335 W Elizabeth St

Yum Yum’s

1300 W Elizabeth St

All three of these restaurants offer the basic falafel, pita, hummus, and fries, but it’s up to you to decide your favorite.

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
