Vegetarian Food Fair - Toronto
Yesterday we went to the Vegetarian Food Fair in Toronto. I scored two finds at the fair. First up is the uncheese cookbook. I have been wanting this book for a while. I thought it was a steal at $12.00! Everybody loves a deal. Watch out for uncheese recipes in the coming days on the blog.
The second item was a find. I have looked everywhere in Ajax for hemp seed nut butter. Nobody carries it here! So I scooped up this jar. I don't think it was a deal, but I was happy to finally get my hands on some.
The food fair was fun. I really enjoyed my dim sum plate from Vegetarian Haven, although I took major exception to the "chicken" drum stick. On a whole I was overwhelmed by all the faux meat and dairy at the festival. What was up with that? I'm a vegetarian because I don't like meat.... why were they offering food that is just like meat? I want veggies! Also, if I hadn't known better I would have thought that vegetarians are a pretty unhealthy bunch based on all the deep fried food they were serving up there. I was shocked there wasn't more fresh food.
