Yesterday, I attended a local Veggie Fest. It was very hot, noisy, and crowded, but all of the yummy vegan food I ate made up for it! I also sampled many interesting tidbits such as hemp seeds, dark chocolate covered pineapple, and pizza flavored kale chips. This was my first time eating out as a vegan. It felt a bit strange constantly asking people whether their food was vegan! I have to be more careful to not assume it is, because I accidentally sampled a protein bar that contained honey in it! 😛 I’m sorry bees, I love you!
I apologize for my sub-par food photography. I got so excited about my yum-yums, that I ate them before remembering to take a quality photo!
Onto the food:
Let’s first talk about this delicious piece of vegan sausage pizza. Do you see this beautiful slice of pizza goodness? To everyone who claims that vegan food tastes like tree bark: your argument is invalid.
It was a hot and sunny day so I had to get a tropical fruit smoothie! In addition to being fruity and sweet, it was reassuring to know that none of my friends’ stolen milk was in it! Unfortunately, by the time I remembered to take its picture, it was melted and spent after a long walk back to the car. 😦 I promise it was better than it looks in this picture!
And of course, I had to get my peanut butter fix! There was a vendor selling Peanut Butter & Co products. Jars of creamy and smooth peanut butter are difficult to resist, especially when they are free of hydrogenated oils and certified vegan! I will be stashing away these jars of goodness in my dorm room this fall!
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed my first vegan food diary, despite my mediocre photography. I will do better next time, I promise! 🙂 🙂
