10 Kick-Ass Vegan Picnics

10 Kick-Ass Vegan Picnics

Sometimes we need to take the party out of our homes to show the world what gorgeous vegan food looks like al fresco. Do you want to be thought of as a timid carrot nibbler? Hell, no! With no shortage of amazing recipe ideas online, why not go the extra mile and construct a menu around your favorite theme? There is no time like the present (I mean, if you happen to be reading this when and where it’s warm out) to gather your accouterments – for example, a blanket, cruelty-free sunblock and insect repellent, a sporty implement or two, reusable plates, cups and cutlery, cloth napkins, a cooler and your best, Yogi Bear-approved pic-a-nic basket – and bring your best vegan game to the great outdoors. From chic to silly, elegant to unpretentious, we’ve got some themes and menu ideas that should inspire creativity and lots of fun.
