In case you haven't seen the cover of this week's Scene yet, get a load of the vivacious vegan Yvonne Smith. The Traveling Vegetarian graces the cover of our Summer Guide and in so doing makes a stunning case for abandoning meat.

Just back from Australia, West Coast native Smith says she put some effort into toning and tanning before her cover shoot, but I have a feeling she just said that to make me feel better about my saturated-fat way of life. I'm afraid all that tofu and quinoa makes her glow in a way that bacon will never benefit me.

But Yvonne is more than a blond bombshell. She's an awesome advocate for vegetarians, seeking out restaurants across the country that make the most of meatless cuisine. You can check out her finds in Atlanta, Asheville and other veg-friendly cities at her website, and see her profile this month at

Who do we need to call to get this woman her own Food Network show?
