Babycakes vegan & gluten-free bakery

I always blog about my love for Babycakes, I absolutely love everything on their menu. When I heard they started making vegan baked doughnuts I jumped in the car and drove downtown to give them a try. These healthy doughnuts were light, fluffy, and oh so scrumptious, I can’t wait to bake some myself. Babycakes is a vegan & gluten-free bakery with locations in Manhattan & Los Angeles. Babycakes offers all-natural, organic baked goods that are refined sugar-free, gluten-free, wheat free, soy free, casein free, egg free, vegan & kosher! If you can’t make it out to one of their bakery’s go out and buy one of their cookbooks!

Raw Cane Juice

I have been buying Raw Cane Super Juice at my local farmers market & I am addicted! I drink it by itself or add it to my juiced veggies. Fresh pressed cane juice is a raw & organic nourishing anti-oxidant that energizes and cleanses your body. Raw Cane Juice is unrefined, unprocessed and it’s a complete superfood. Look for it at your local farmers markets!

Le Pain Quotidien has vegan options!

I went to Le Pain last week and I noticed they added quite a few vegan options to their menu. I have always loved going to Le Pain because they have such delicious organic breads. The wheat, rye, spelt, five-grain, & walnut are all vegan.  They added V = Vegan symbol next to all vegan menu items, I tried the tofu scramble and it was pretty tasty, they did send out butter with my bread (which is soooo NOT vegan) but hey I am glad more restaurants are trying. It is a step in the right direction in my opinion. If more restaurants offered vegetarian & vegan options maybe more people would eat healthy 🙂
