The Sweetness That is Derived from Leaves Stevia rebaudiana, or Stevia, is a plant whose leaf contains a sweet substance that when extracted, can be 200-350 times sweeter than sugar.

Honey: What is it? Sure, you know what honey is. But do you really? The honey that is commercially produced is made by the honeybee. These bees store the honey that they make in their hive as a food reserve for the colony. The honey provides nutrients during times of scarcity, such as during bad […]

Cocoa and cacao both come from the same source, which is the Theobroma cacao tree, native to South America.

Cacao beans are usually […]
You’ve likely seen this delicious alternative to chocolate at health food stores. Carob bars resemble chocolate bars, and you can find carob powder as well, which looks a lot like cocoa powder. Carob does not taste quite like chocolate though, but it is also great in desserts. What is Carob? Carob comes from the pods […]
Hailed as a miracle fruit, jackfruit can feed the hungry by providing nutrients such as potassium, calcium, iron, and carbohydrates even during times of climate change.

The thought of having cow skin or any other animal skin upon my own skin is really disturbing. When people wear non-vegan leather, this is essentially what is happening. The tanning process of leather is toxic for humans as well as the environment. Thankfully, there are vegan leathers out there. Let’s go through the options […]

Dude, bro. Like so good man. I've been twice and both times very happy with the food. I am not a vegetarian or vegan but honestly that does not matter one bit. The food is amazing. Legit everything I tried was great. Can't wait to go again. You can also just run in and fill a box, weight n pay, and kick rocks. Hmm think I know what I'm doing for lunch.

Affordably priced and healthy vegan food, centrally located in the downtown core. While the setting is lacking ambiance, there is also a beautiful courtyard where you can sit outside on the nicer days. They have an amazing selection of "healthy" desserts, and they list their ingredients for every food item, making it easy for those with any sensitivities to know what they can or cannot have.
Their best secret though is their amazingly priced juice, smoothie, and "milk"shake menu. Most other places in town charge upwards of $8-9 for a fresh pressed juice, but they are much more affordable here, and of the same quality of other places.

Reasonably priced and delicious vegan food what more could you want?
When I first started visiting the cafeteria style buffet took some getting used too but I do like the food by weight concept being I can spend less if I’m not necessarily super hungry.
The coffee is also a perk because it’s good and dairy free.
My only gripe would be the location of the dirty tray and dishes bin it’s kinda hidden off to the side and the first couple times I had no idea where to put my plates after I was finished.

My favourite restaurant of all time, I go there every chance I get when I am in the city. The food is really delicious and there is so much variety. Everything looks and smells so good that I often fill up my plate with as much as I can. You don't even need to be vegan to appreciate it. The first time I visited I was with a friend who was craving bacon and complaining about veganism, once inside she was was going on about how great the food was.
Also a great place to meet cool people. I once met the federal leader of the Communist Party there.
