I’ve waited a pretty significant amount of time to write this post. Like months. Why? Not because I’m lazy (well, I am, but unrelated…). But because it makes me so hungry to think about all of this food and so sad that I can’t eat it all right now!
I’ve been vegan for about 3 or 4 years now. When I lived in California, I hadn’t made the switch yet, which means every time I go back I have an incredible number of new places to explore.
This week I’ll be talking about a few places I hit while visiting Sacramento.
Special shout out to my dad who put up with my wild vegan food chase and got me all this insanely delicious food.
Our first stop? Veg Cafe. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Not a huge menu, but a decent amount of options, many of which are allergy friendly.
I know this is a big statement to make, but this may be the absolute best meal I’ve ever had.
Sun and Soil
Next we made our way to Sun and Soil an organic juice company.
It was everything you’d expect. Plenty of fresh juice and smoothie options. The one issue I had, as you often find in juice bars, was the price. For the 3 items pictured (a smoothie, one juice and one “shot”), we paid a hefty $32.
If you go, know you’ll be spending a pretty penny, but also know that it was incredibly delicious.
The one mistake I made on this little food tour was going to Pushkin’s Bakery when I was so full.
Or maybe I would have left with too much had I not been hungry. Hmm… Go in prepared to want to inhale everything.
With everything being GF and loads of vegan and nut free options, there’s something for everyone.
Vegan Plate - Roseville
Now, Roseville is about 20 miles north of Sacramento, but if you’re passing through you absolutely must stop at the Vegan Plate.
I’ve been twice now and haven’t been anything less than totally happy and satisfied. A great menu with plenty of allergy friendly choices, even the non-vegans in your life will be thrilled.
