Remember my post not too long ago about our tiny vacation in Key West, 2 nights, with a Gift Certificate we had? That it rained, constantly. That streets were flooded, and that I woke up our 1st morning to watch kayakers paddling down the street in front of my hotel? Well, there was a bright spot (well, a few bright spots, but let's concentrate on one, shall we?) Food.
Vegan food to be precise.
Ah, the joy of being vegan. Eating real food, with no death involved. Its a wonderful thing, really it is. Here, in photos, are some of the wonderful meals I had while in Key West. I forgot to take pictures at some places, and other times I was sans camera. But, for your viewing pleasure, here's a glimpse in photos:
Here's a picture of a lovely bibb lettuce salad I had our first night at Hot Tin Roof. I'd never been there before, I'm more a creature of habit, going where I'm used to getting vegan food. But, we had a gift certificate for Hot Tin too. I'm so glad we went! The salad was delicious, some type of light & creamy vinaigrette on there too.... but look at the entree' below!
Yay! Lunchtime arrived, and we followed the painted bananas to The Sugar Apple's ALL VEGAN cafe! That's my reusable grocery bag on the pavement, maybe I should've removed that for the photo?
Here's the Sugar Apple sign. I think the paint job on the building is cool!
Yay! Here was my lunch on day #1 rainy day, from Sugar Apple. Smokey tempeh on multi grain, with a beautiful salad. Eaten back at the hotel, on my rain soaked balcony, overlooking the windswept Gulf, a beautiful pool (with nobody in it due to lightning) and their rain soaked outdoor bar. Still, lunch was tasty!
So, there you have a bit of what we experienced eating our way through our rainy mini-vacation. Don't ever let anyone tell you vegans are pasty lentil eating freaks. We're foodies through and through! Its a beautiful thing to know that no animals were harmed, tortured and killed merely to satisfy my desire for a sandwich. Not to mention the health benefits that go along with this....do YOU think we were deprived of anything at all while eating? Hardly! And, we even had cookies. Go veg, and no one gets hurt. xo
