Hey Everyone - we spent the day in Toronto last week!
My hair salon is in Yorkville so we trekked two hours by car into the city on Thursday morning. We stopped in and visited the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) which was great for the kids they really enjoyed the Dinosaur exhibit. Funny thing though, now that I am veg*n I had a hard time seeing all the dead stuffed animals in the glass cases, this is something that would have bothered me before but not as much as it does now. So I guess I had mixed feelings about our visit.
I asked the salon owner where we should eat and he suggested Whole Foods which was great, it wasn't all that easy though to find Vegan food, almost everything but the salads had either milk or eggs listed as ingredients. I did however, enjoy shopping I bought a bunch of stuff that I haven't seen in SWO.
I bought a gourmet Strawberry spread called Gouash - I'm sure it's just like jam but it looks very artsy fartsy so I couldn't resist, also picked up some Sunbutter for the monsters and found some Earth Balance Buttery Sticks which I'll try baking with. I found Soya Style Feta and Belsoy however, I didn't realize that is it was past the expiry date.
. I also bought some Tofutti Cream Cheese we can only get the Yoso brand here so we'll see which tastes better; if they are both gross I'll just use them for baking. Lastly I picked up the latest edition of VegNews which I'm about to sit down and devour right now.
On our way home Al wanted to stop for a coffee so I told him to pull over on the corner of Bloor and Spadina because there is a Second Cup there, while he ran to pick up two Soy Chai Lattes - which are way better than Starbucks btw I looked out the window and realized we were parked right out in front of Fresh. Had I known we were so close we could have lunch there. Oh well next time. I've heard such great things about that place.
