12 Day Vegan Challenge: Day and Meal 8 and 9
So good to be home even though it's a short weekend due to the fact I head to Roanoke this afternoon. Breakfasts continues to consist of oatmeal and fruit. This morning some blackberries were added although that is not very seasonable eating.
The challenge sure is easier when you have the home field advantage. Eating out and eating vegan is the theme of this post. After a long week of travel, Ellwood Thompsons was the saviour Friday night as they have a great vegan selection on the hot bar!
Saturday lunch allowed for our second visit since opening - Fresca on Addison. I now see where a restaurant that understands vegan comes in. So nice to walk in and just order not having to explain or ask anything! Everything on the menu is yummy. I settled for the chorizo and roasted red pepper pizza. yes it was vegan from the cheese to the chorizo.
For dinner Thai was on the menu from Ruang Tong which happens to be a 5 minute walk from the house. I call it eating vegan with a kick - oh the flavors Thai food has.
E.A.T. local E.A.T. well 3.5 days to go....
