Remember When I Used to Blog About Food?

Oh yeah, I used to write and share a lot about food. And then I got lazy. We still eat all the time. We are both still vegan, it’s been a little over 4 years and keeps getting easier and easier.

A few months ago I heard that Trader Joe’s started carrying accidentally vegan cinnamon rolls. I went looking for them one time and couldn’t find them. A few months later I was back in the store and stumbled upon them. They are bad news good. Not great for you at all, and a little too easy to make, but they have been a great breakfast/dessert fall back.


A new-ish restaurant opened up in the neighborhood north of us, and Eric and went up for dinner last week. THEY HAVE A VEGAN CHEESEPLATE. Seriously. It’s pretty good. The smoked mozzarella was amazing.


Last Saturday we went on a 30 mile bike ride and while heading home were discussing ice cream. Discussing ice cream led to us wanting ice cream. It was a nice day out so we decided to stop for lunch first.

We went down to The P.O.P.E. and tried their French Toast for the first time.


Post brunch we walked across the street to get vanilla soft serve from B2.


That I can think of off the top of my head, there are currently 4 places in Philly to get vegan ice cream, all with very different ice cream.

 On another non-food related note, this summer I will be running the 2013 Stroehmann Back on My Feet 20in24 Silver Relay. I will be running two 8.4 mile loops with a really awesome team (Your Pace or Mine), and our total mileage will be 84 miles.

I really hate asking people for donations, but if you are feeling generous, please consider making a donation to this wonderful organization!

    YES I remember and miss your wonderful vegan fare. That cheese plate looks awesome. What restaurant is it?

      Cedar Point in Fishtown. Semi-new (used to be A Full Plate in my hood). They have a nice patio if you ever want to venture that way.

    You basically just posted my ideal daily diet. Pastries, soft serve, cheese plate. Least healthy vegan ever.

  3. I am soooo jealous of your vegan soft serve options! We used to have one place here, but the soft serve machine was always down. :-( Now, I can get vegan ice cream at Imagine Vegan Cafe. But it’s not soft serve. Sigh.

    Oh man, how have I not been aware of those cinnamon rolls until now?
