Our very first exploit was on my First cameo review. On my 56th birthday our family to the Peacefoods Cafe
on 82nd street on the west side of Manhattan and we ate some incredible Vegan delights. Beginning with pumkin/lental soup; chickpea french fries, and all types of wonderful salads with bountiful varieties of vegis glore. Each of us sat for hours humming and sharing this wonderful menu to be found here http://peacefoodcafe.com/
! I highly recommend this institution for one and all!
2) I also read an awesome article on the topic called "Consious Eating - On the Vegan Trail - Why people are putting more plants on their plates" by Kristin Ohlson. With her permission I'm posting the link to the entire article here
