Simple Pleasures…

Summer is a time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life… to slow down, to savor the sweetness of a cherry, the zing of fresh mint on my tongue. Yum! What a joy it can be to eat fresh and simple foods. It is these simple pleasures that make it so easy for me to follow a vegan diet!

The Roost

Thanks to Emily C. for sharing this vegan-friendly restaurant with the Yummy Plants community! Emily says, “Fantastic local & vegan options! The atmosphere is very rustic: drinks served in ball jars, mix-matched metal and wooden chairs, wooden tabletops, and glass bottle light fixtures. The drink selection is fantastic, serving an extensive list of teas, unique coffee concoctions, smoothies, and local beers, wine, and mead! And the best part of the drink menu is that any item with dairy milk in the ingredients can be substituted for rice, soy, or almond milk at NO EXTRA CHARGE! Score! The food is fantastic! Lots of vegan and gluten free daily soup options, special salads, and extra yummy baked goods…”

Haymarket Cafe

Thanks to Emily C. for sharing! Emily says, “Excellent juices & smoothies! They also offer plenty of yummy vegan breakfast and lunch options! Definitely an eclectic space that is suitable for candlelit dining or conducive to studying, or just meeting up with friends and grabbing a light lunch or great juice! The storefront is quite small, so it’s easy to miss…but you DON’T want to miss this little treasure of a place!”

The Lone Wolf

Thanks to Emily C. for sharing this super yummy vegan restaurant with the community! Emily says, “The Lone Wolf has a FANTASTIC vegan selection! Omelets, burritos, tofu scrambles, vegan spelt french toast, vegan pancakes, & vegan benedict for breakfast! And for lunch, great salads & vegan veggie scallion crepes… YUMMY! The atmosphere is nice yet casual … definitely a must-go!”

Eating Green Can Protect Your Bones – Harvard Says Plants Prove Better Source of Calcium than Dairy

Harvard University’s School of Public Health has created its own “Healthy Eating Plate.” The Harvard plate supports more plant-based calcium foods such as dark leafy greens (especially kale) and beans instead of relying primarily on dairy products. The Harvard plate also promotes the consumption of whole grains, plant-based fats, and vegetables. We’re glad to see support from Harvard for plant-based sources of calcium!
