Postmodern Foods: Washington, D.C. vegans rejoice!  »

No caption could give these raw cinnamon rolls  justice. JUST EAT THEM.

There’s nothing I get more excited about than finding out an old friend  is a fellow vegan (especially way back from high school). I ran into Denise Hicks, owner of Postmodern Foods, a while back when she was working at Sticky Fingers Bakery, and we stayed in touch through Facebook. I was doubly excited that Denise was not only vegan, but was working at one of my fave spots to visit when I’m visiting home!  

Denise told me of her plan to start her own vegan business, and I was super excited from day one. A few years later, Postmodern Foods was born. After drooling over photos on the internet, I’m so glad I FINALLY got to try her goodies! She offers a variety of juices, smoothies, and mostly raw (but some cooked) foods. 

I woke up early to go to the Great Falls Farmers Market (which is so cute) and, of course, bought a bunch of different things to try. First of all, her raw cinnamon rolls are UN-FREAKIN-BELIEVABLE. I was generous enough to let my parents taste them, and they both wanted more than just a tastes worth (fat chance!).

These little nuggets are made with chickpea flour. The taste & texture? Nailed it!

The Mini Mushroom and Spinach Quiche (gluten-free) was pretty killer, as was the Nutty “Bread” (also gluten-free). I also tasted the Cinnamon’y Cashew Milk (think vegan horchata) and wanted to buy a gallon of it to nurse in a Camelback all day (I like to keep it classy), but decided to go with the Grapefruit juice (with E3 live blue-green algae) and loved it!

I made some good ole avo and nooch (plus Tapatío) on toast with the Nutty “Bread.” Didn’t regret it! 

I was seriously impressed with how everything tasted, as well as the portions available for the price. Once her business grows, however, Denise would like to lower her prices, so order food from her ASAP, so Postmodern Foods can take over the world! D.C.-area vegans, don’t miss out on this!

Subway’s New DC Vegan Offerings: The WaPo Has a Review!  »

Only people in the DC area are getting to enjoy Subway’s new line of meaty vegan sandwiches. I was wishing I had a teleportation machine a couple weeks ago when I had to pay a dollar extra for some measly squeeze-bag avocado on my salad-on-a-bun at a gas station in Pine Junction, CO. Yes, I’d love some Daiya with that whine.

Lucky for Andrea Sachs, she’s in the area, and she’s got the full low-down on her experience over on the Washington Post’s All We Can Eat blog. My summary: They’re about what you’d expect from Subway. But way better than salad-on-a-bun.

I’ll be in DC in October, so maybe I’ll get to try them myself. Until then, let’s keep lobbying Subway to bring these nationwide! Hot dog!

Here’s the video from an awesome Ringling protest in D.C. I’m so hype on this projection idea! I don’t care if it means there will be aborted fetuses on the side of Planned Parenthood (I’m pretty sure that’s what it means). Still, this RULES. We SHOULD show those circus goers what is ACTUALLY happening in the “greatest show on earth!”

Here’s the video for the FBI protest the narrator mentions. So awesome. I miss D.C.!

Vegansaurus Quickie: Washington, DC!  »

I couldn’t go back to the east coast and not make a trip to DC. So, gosh darn it, that’s what I did! I only had time for a 24-hour whirlwind visit but of course I had time to go to Sticky Fingers! You may have heard of the all-vegan bakery in D.C., as certain Vegansaurs are a wee bit obsessed!!! with the place. There’s even an interview with the creator of their cute (badger?) logo! Ob. Sessed.

Don’t worry guys! You would have been proud! I spent $35 on pastries. YES I DID!

The bakery is in a different location then when I lived in D.C.; now they have this whole cafe thing going on, with brunch and everything. Pretty effing fantastic.

I also managed to stop by my friend Nick’s new wine bar, Room 11, for dinner. Score! They totally make vegan versions of their specials, you just have to ask! Check out this action: VEGAN BRUSSELS SPROUT PANZANELLA. Holy cannoli! It was awesome. And panzanella is fun to say. Then I had a yummy veganized risotto and proceeded to get SHWASTED because that’s just how I roll.
