So, I tried the veggie lobster...and it should probably be said, it's not the most realistic-tasting veggie meat out there. I'm not sure what to think of it, but it's definitely strange. It doesn't have a whole lot of flavour to it really, but it definitely has a rubbery texture, and I haven't decided if I don't like it, or am just indifferent to it...

All right I have a question. Does anyone here know of any vegan or vegan friendly tattoo artists in the halifax area? I may be able to go to Truro or up to Cape Breton depending on the tattooer. Links to online portfolios would be a bonus. Or if you don't know, just in general any good reconmendations/experiences?

Hmm, I don't, but a vegan friend of mine recently got a tattoo (before moving away...) so I'll ask her!

Okay, I finally heard back from my friend! She said they went to Pinski's, and were "totally satisfied". I assume it's a vegan tattoo place since she's vegan, but I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to double check. Hope this helps!

Thank you! I'll definatly look into it. I've been researching like crazy as I've finally decided to stop being cheap and save up for what I want.

What is the best health food store in Nova Scotia?



I live on PEI and my options are very limited when it comes to organic produce. I'm looking for the best health food with the biggest selection of organic produce. I'm willing to make a drive to stock up.



Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I don't remember many places on the island for organic produce, other than what you can find in the grocery stores...though I did enjoy the PEI Green Party's idea to make the whole island organic! It'd be great, but it would be a long time before that ever happened.



For organic food around Halifax, Planet Organic is probably the place to hit; they've got plenty of organic produce, and great things like tempeh, vegenaise, etc there. You can also find a place at the Saturday Farmer's market that has organic Nutritional Yeast, organic flour (several varieties), oats, beans, chickpeas, etc, all organic. Most of it is imported, though the flour and such is all ground at the Speerville flour mill, I believe. I'm not sure if there are other good places, though.

P.S. How did the tattooing work out arcane? Did you get one already? Still considering?

I haven't got it done, gotta save my money. I know what I want, it just about actually saving up for it. And I can't find a decent reference picture of Schroeder (from peanuts) to save my life, well one where he is standing up, not at his piano. (I'm getting Lucy and Schroeder as growing up we labeled different peanuts characters as members of our family and Lucy is my mom and Schroeder is my dad).

Well, I did some searching, but couldn't find any good pictures...maybe you can take some books of Peanuts comics out from the library, and find one in those?

We had a book fair at work last week and I took a quick look, only found one picture and he was in his baseball uniform which is not what I want. I'll probably check out book stores as well I love peanuts and would want to keep the books. I'm a nerd like that.

Well, maybe you can ask the tattooist to make an amalgam of Schroeders to make what you want! And there's nothing wrong with being a nerd I'm a big Calvin & Hobbes nerd myself

This board is great, very new to vegetarianism, (only been weeks) but after reading (haven't finished it yet) the China Study decided to make some healthy choices.

If anyone else is from CB is it just me or is there very limited selection here unless choosing raw, all most all of the time?

Thanks,

Darryl
