Crispers

The second half of my sad YOW meal lol

I do love Crispers - they have a unique texture and make me nostalgic. And All Dressed is my favourite flavour of any chip, so I really can’t complain. My only gripe is that the US more

The US departures terminal at YOW leaves much to be desired. There’s a Tim Horton’s, a small restaurant, a duty free, and a Relay, which is basically the only place to find vegan options. No fruit, nothing fresh, pretty more

Have you ever had a moment of panic after taking your first bite at a restaurant and realizing they may have accidentally given you something not vegan?

That was me after one bite of this hot dog. I had to ask the waitress more

cloudyaquilegia Oh I know this panic way too well! How many times I've sent waiters qnd waitresses back to the kitchen to verify, even when I still was vegetarian. Sometime I was totally wrong, sometime, unfortunately, I was right... it's always better to double check, but then, when something is vegan and has that frightening taste of nostalgia, chapeau!2 likesReply
leratonsaveur I wonder if the chef takes it as the ultimate compliment when they’re trying to make something taste like meat or cheese 🤔 😆 3 likesReply
udeshs We all been there, it's scary when the food tastes like real meat n keep doubting if it's vegan...sometimes best to stick to vegan/vegetarian only restaurants, but that's difficult 2 likesReply
leratonsaveur True, especially when you regularly get asked if things like honey, eggs, and yogurt are vegan 😅 🙄 1 likeReply

I finally found soy curls!

Many of the recipes in the newest Edgy Veg and my Vegan Richa Instant Pot cookbooks call for soy curls and I was having a hard time finding them locally in #ottawa. I found them at Natural Food more

Moose Munchies

I found this Smiths Falls company at the Vegans Who Snack festival. I’m not usually a candy person, but peach taffy sounded too interesting not to try!

The peach flavour is nice but subtle - not too artificial. One or two more

Nairn's

I’m a sucker for anything rosemary so these crackers hit the spot with some vegan cheeses.

They’re a light flatbread with just the right amount of rosemary flavour to pair with any cheeze (IMO). They hold up and don’t more

Nuts For Cheese

#womenowned

I love the Nuts for Cheese brand, even if I could easily devour an $11 package in one afternoon.

I wouldn’t say this flavour tastes too much like brie, which was by far my favourite cheese back in the day, but it’s a really more

Drip House does a great avocado toast!

They use a thick piece of bread with delicious seeds on the crust. They top it with not only whipped avocado but slices as well. That plus the cherry tomatoes and everything bagel more

This hit the spot on a sunny day on Drip House’s lovely patio. They have multiple vegan milks to choose from, as well.

I’m no ice coffee connoisseur but I thought this was tasty ☕️ #ottawa

Suzy Q is super popular in #ottawa for its creative, light donuts (as opposed to the denser donuts you’d find at Maverick’s). They always have at least one vegan option and you’d never know you were missing out on any ingredients. more
