Vegan visits Portland: The Paradox Organic Cafe

I hade the…

Belmont Combo $7.95

Choose a pancake, French toast or a waffle; sausage or potatoes; one egg or tofu.

I had to get my brother to change my order because I didn’t realize the sausage was vegan (btw BEST VEGAN BREAKFAST SAUSAGE EVER), and I couldn’t miss out on that. The French Toast was also amazing, so thick and delicious (I think they put some vegan creme cheese in the mix om nom nom). I got it with tofu and I put this local hot sauce on it that everyone seems to enjoy.

I love that when they bring your food out they ask you if you want Braggs or Nutritional Yeast with it… most people in BC don’t even know what nutritional yeast is! haha : D

LOVE PORTLAND! OM NOM NOM!

EDIT: OH, and the bathroom was space themed (they had an underwater one too) hehehe

My First Parfait!

t too long ago I was linked to this blog called “Sweetly Raw” by raw food chef Heather Pace. I subscribed to it and i’ve been totally amazed by all the raw parfaits she has been putting up. This morning I tried making my first raw vegan parfait (well actually my first parfait period). I took a peach and a banana and blended them with a splash of almond milk and a touch of water. This made a pudding which I layered into the bottom. Then I put in some pecans and sprinkled them with maple syrup. I added the rest of the peach pudding and then another layer of pecans + maple. The I cut a strawberry up and put it on top. I am eating it now and it is very delicious. Next time I think i’ll chop up the pecans first so they layer better. Also everything kind of smushed together and didn’t get that nice layered look. I think i’ll have to experiment more hehe. MMMMMM.
