Eating Vegan in San Diego

Mia and her friend Anjali wanted to make a quick post 4th of July trip down to San Diego so I was dragged along to drive them there...haha just kidding. maybe. But seriously I needed a little vacation too and of course I love to spend time with my bestie. We gotta give a big thank you to Anjali's friend Lizzie and her housemates for giving us a home for a few nights. 

So I've been vegan for like a week haha. And no it's not for ethical reasons or anything. Although I do love animals. It's mainly for my skin. Avoiding meat products and dairy really really help me not to break out. I also always feel way better being on a vegan diet. If anything I definitely have more energy eating a mainly plant based diet. 

Surprisingly, (to me maybe not to anyone else haha) San Diego has tons of vegan options! So I'll lay out all the ones we went to and what vegan dishes I ordered down below as well as where we went for some beyond gorgeous views.
