Vedge is getting a lot of love this week, and deservedly so! Those of us who loved Horizons were shocked to see it close, and waited for what with baited breath for Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby’s new downtown vegan project.

As a young child, much to my dismay, my mother packed my lunch every day. My homemade whole-wheat bread, natural peanut butter, and sugar-free jam sandwiches and carrot sticks seemed boring and embarrassing compared to the pizza-burgers dished out in the school lunch line or the mini bags of chips and cream-filled cake rolls that other kids carried in their lunch boxes.

Our World Champion Phillies are set to open this Sunday. Let the games begin! The Phillies also happen to play at the ballpark PETA has named “No. 1 vegetarian ballpark in Major League Baseball. ” The Philly City Paper reports that this year many Citizen’s vendors are going more “local” as well as increasing their vegetarian options offering “black bean burgers with cilantro sour cream … Continue reading Go Phillies – Eat Vegetarian!
I’ve been eating and cooking vegetarian for 16 years and thinking for a few about starting an eating/ cooking blog. The purchase of a brand new camera, small enough to carry around with me to capture all possible food moments, has been the inspiration I needed to get going! I’m usually a researcher and review reader, but popped into my local Ritz Camera store and … Continue reading Hungry at Root
