I can't believe that it's December already. Lights are adorning peoples' homes, and candy canes are showing up in stores. Hmmm...maybe it's time to start baking?!
This post is actually going to be about a "few of my favorite things" (I've always wondered why that song was sung around Christmas, but I'm not going to question it, and instead, I'll just use it in my posting). I usually post when something really catches my eye, but this time, I'm going to give you my Top __ List of vegan paradises. Of course, they will all be in the Northwest, because that's where I live, but I'm sure there are cool places elsewhere. I just haven't been to them. This is not in any order but the order in which I thought of them. Enjoy!
-Hot Lips Pizza (their squash sauce during the fall and early winter is absolutely divine)
-Paradox Cafe (try their vegan french toast)
-Proper Eats (local vegetarian and vegan groceries in St. Johns)
-Food Fight! (it’s nice not to have to look at every single ingredient on their groceries because you know it's all vegan)
-VooDoo Donuts (needs no explanation; their vegan doughnuts are by far the best I've ever had)
-Vita Cafe (love their tempeh BLT and hot dog with chili)
-New Seasons grocery stores
-Papa G's Vegan Deli (omg, their mushroom stroganoff is purely amazing)
-Sweet Pea Bakery (it’s lovely to be able to eat baked goods again and enjoy so many different milk alternatives)
-Blend Coffee House (I love the cinnamon rolls that they offer, plus the atmosphere is just awesome)
-Multnomah County and Oregon City Public Libraries (both have so many resources to select from when deciding what to eat next and to make sure that I’m getting all the nutrients I need)
