As a few may know, Beyonce and Jay-Z are trying out their hand in the vegan delivery service, with the 22 Days Nutrition. This program allows you to choose up to three meals a day, with costs ranging between $9.34 to $16.50 per meal. If you didn’t know, this is a growing service. Just like a few other vegan delivery services I’ve seen, meals must be ordered a week in advance. The site mentions that all of the meals are 100 percent plant-based and GMO, gluten, dairy, and soy free.
Dogs are a part of the family, so why not treat them to lunch at their favorite cafe? Le Doggy Cafe is Montreal’s first cafe for dogs. Aside from providing healthy dog treats and canine classes, they have a wholesome vegan and vegetarian menu. Le Doggy Cafe serves specialty salads, grilled cheese, vegetarian burgers, smoothies, coffee beverages, and vegan desserts. I absolutely adore the idea of having doggy cafes.
Café Nutrimania, located in Montreal, QC, offers a delivery service through Nutrimania-Direct, an online ordering service that ships vegan, gluten-free meals to wherever you are located in the local area.They offer vitality bowls with quinoa, wraps, soups, salads, pastries and desserts, breakfast, sushi, and an assortment of fresh juices and smoothies. Meals must be ordered by noon at Saturday, and the week’s worth of meals covers Tuesday through Monday.
It’s good to see a vegan delivery service available to busy individuals who may not always have time to cook. Hopefully, other restaurants will start offering this type of service.
Recently, the Huffington Post produced an article on Magic Vegan Bacon Grease, a vegan product that supposedly resembles and tastes like bacon grease. As if vegans and vegetarians miss the taste of bacon… Despite the name being a personal turnoff, the ingredients are true vegan ingredients with flavors coming from natural sources. The spread contains coconut oil, soy protein(without GMOs), sea salt, pure maple syrup, black pepper, onion, garlic, Torula yeast, and natural smoke flavor.
Why does it have to be named after bacon grease? It looks like a truly genuine vegan product.
Apparently, a few members of the vegetarian community are disappointed in White Castle for having veggie sliders. But, is it a matter of a fast-food joint like White Castle cheapening the vegetarian lifestyle by having veggie sliders? Or is it the fact that vegetarians feel as though vegetarian dishes are transitioning from healthy gourmet food to vegetable-stuffed patties searing in a puddle of animal grease? The patties are said to come from Dr. Praeger, but there is no solid evidence to prove this. Either way, I have no issue with the Dr. Praeger brand or White Castle’s attempt to cater to the growing vegetarian community. The only thing I can hope for is the ethical handling of vegetarian products. It isn’t beneficial to have a veggie patty cooking in bacon, chicken, or beef fat.
Thirty vegetarians are banding together to create a campaign convincing Tokyo restaurant owners of the benefits of having vegetarian menus which cater to the growing vegetarian population. Despite Japan having a rich history of vegetarian recipes and practices, especially Buddhist traditions, the population of restaurants offering vegetarian menus are in the minority. Using tourism as a motivating factor, the coalition of vegetarians in Japan hope to have 50,000 restaurants on board by the 2020 Olympics.
