Who doesn’t love going out to a nice restaurant and indulging in some delicious food that always seems to taste better than anything you’ve tried making yourself!?
Being vegan isn’t easy when you want to go out to the standard restaurants available since the only portion of the menu you can really look at is the salads which would be great if it didn’t taste like dry lettuce, a few tomato slices tossed on, and a chemically produced dressing that makes up about half your calorie intake for the day and ingredients that you can’t even pronounce… Tempting right?
Vegan culture is slowly becoming more and more predominant as the word about the amazing lifestyle is slowly getting around. I searched around my area for some vegan friendly restaurants and came across this absolutely amazing cafe. Their menu is filled with nutritious raw and vegan food and you can literally smell the freshness of the food.
I got their Super Salad which was spring mix and spinach, roasted beets, carrots, cucumber, sweet potato, avocado, mixed with balsamic vinaigrette dressing, sprinkled with sunflower seeds and sprouts and my friend also got a side of Avocado fries
After an amazingly filling lunch we went down the street to Kelly’s Bake Shoope which is my absolute new favourite bakery! Their baked goods are made from natural ingredients – Brownies, cupcakes, cookies, ice cream, you name it they have it and all vegan, dairy free, organic, gluten free, preservative free, peanut free, egg free and overall just simply scrumptious.
Mile High Brownie
How can you resist? It’s no wonder they won the best bakery and and dessert in the GTA area from the Toronto Vegetarian Association.
If you ever get a chance to try any of these fabulous place definitely do so, you won’t regret it!
Explore restaurants in your neighbourhood, you never know what you might find. Hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend
