My Favortite Seattle Vegan Resturants

Today I am trying to get to Seattle for the Vegfest.

Although there will be lots of food there, I am always curious about where I might get a vegan meal. I checked SEATTLEVEGAN.COM. There are always two of my favorites: Cafe Flora (Vegetarian and Vegan) & Araya’s Place (Thai Vegan ). Cafe Flora also had a wonderful cookbook – bought it when I was a Vegetarian, but still have lots of Vegan recipes. I found an interesting one, but it’s in Kirkland (a bit out of my way today, but am pretty sure my daughter and I will have to check it out when I visit up north): Picnic Dogs, which has a Vegan hot dog. I stay away from processed food for the most part, but now and then a hot dog is just darn fun food!! Let’s not pretend we don’t all have a bit of our own childhood or comfort food.

Yes, I am a foody – love to cook and love to eat. I continue learning the art of moderation and nourishing my body – harder lesson. With only 2 favorite Vegan restaurants in Seattle, I need to get out more and explore!!!

I could write more and will, but gotta get on the road!!

Seattle’s 2012 Vegfest

The Vegfest is slated for Vegetarians, but am sure there will be plenty for Vegans as well. I haven’t attended, but am hoping I will be able to make it this weekend. Sad that I lived in Seattle and didn’t take the time to attend.

Check out the line up of speakers.  Neal Barnard, M.D. will be there and I will be so happy if I am able to attend his session.

Chefs will be attending and cooking as well.

Just hop on over and check out the event. Sounds wonderful, empowering, and healthful.
