Angry and Upset...

For years now, I've been going to several vegan restaurants in LA. I love vegan food. I love eating out. I'm always very skeptical of eating out though. I don't trust people. And please do not take this the wrong way, but things get lost in translation. It's just how it is. I don't think that people are purposefully trying to mislead vegans or trick them, I just think they are misinformed as to what being vegan is. Or it's the packaging of the products they receive. Well, after reading this blog QuarryGirl.com I feel like I should have trusted my instincts. 1 of these places is really upsetting to me, considering I know the owner and the staff are all great people. But I honestly think it has to do with where they get their ingredients, not them. I love this place. And I'll probably still go here when I'm in town. I'm not a big fan of fake fish, so I'm not missing out here.
Green Leaves however, every time I've gone there, I've gotten a stomach ache. I'd get the chick'n sandwich with "vegan" cheese and avocado. And every time, I'd leave with a terrible knot in my stomach. I thought it was the wheat gluten. Well, now when I get that awful pain, I know, never go back. This place knows what they're doing. And I'd never go back there anyway.
Real Food Daily was tested as well, and of course, they tested negative for everything. Right on.
These 17 "VEGAN" restaurants were tested for Casein, Egg, and Shellfish by the way. This blog is a good read and I'd recommend reading all of it.

Take care, and listen to your insides when eating out. (That's what she said)
