Eat Pastry.

12 Oct

I figured since it is Friday and the weekend is upon us, I would leave you all with something super tasty to check out. Eat Pastry cookies. It seriously gets no better than Eat Pastry. Not only are their cookies vegan, they are actually healthy. All natural, egg and dairy free, Eat Pastry was started by a couple who met on their first day of pastry school πŸ™‚ The rest is vegan cookie history.

Eat Pastry cookies come in an ‘ice cream-like’ container that you can re-seal once you take the allotted amount out. This is great for those of us who just want to make a couple of cookies and save the rest of the dough. Their packaging makes it so the dough does not dry out and it can easily be scooped out with a tablespoon and plopped onto the baking sheet. Then in only 15 minutes you have delicious, hot, vegan cookies for your eating pleasure.

Carried at places such as Whole Foods, Eat Pastry makes it easy to snack healthy and vegan. Plus some of their recipes only have 60 calories per cookie so you are not breaking the calorie bank with these puppies. With flavors like gluten-free snickerdoodle, peanut butter chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin chocolate chip, everyone will find something they enjoy.

These cookies made my week this week and hopefully they will do the same for you. Have a nice weekend and Eat Pastry!!!

Tasty Treats Review: Wildflour Vegan Bakery And Juice Bar.

15 May

Wildflour vegan bakery and juice bar is a new establishment right outside Providence, Rhode Island. It is actually located in Pawtucket which happens to be the town the movie ‘Outside Providence’ is based on πŸ˜‰ Wildflour has tons of vegan treats for sale, from cupcakes to cookies and coffee, there is most definitely something for everyone there. The funny thing is that it is located right next to a Dunkin Donuts. Nothing like some ‘healthy’ competition huh? Lol.

Run by a brother and sister team, Wild Flour is the second venture into the vegan restaurant world. They are also the owners of the amazing Garden Grill which sits like 4 doors down from Wild Flour. Inspired by their mother who turned to a raw foods diet back in 1941, this duo hopes to spread healthful baked goods and positive vibes through the community in which they serve. They use as many organic ingredients as they can and never use any artificial sweeteners, use biodegradable packaging when possible and try to keep their ingredients as local as possible.

For some reason when we got to Wild Flour I really wanted a ‘Snickerdoodle’ Cookie which is odd for me cuz there is no chocolate in those cookies. So I got one and as expected it was awesome. Nice texture and very tasty, not too sugary. I am not a fan of my baked goods being overly sweet, too much sugar just seems to take a lot away from the taste of things. Of course I was super happy with the ‘Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup’ Cupcake. Chocolate and peanut butter together are like a slice of heaven in my opinion. They did a really amazing job with this cupcake, moist, not too big and a nice frosting to cake ratio.

The vibe, feeling and decor of Wild Flour are all appealing. You can sit and drink your coffee as you read a magazine, book or chat with your friends. The staff was super nice and the coffee was super strong and tasty. My only complaint was that I stuffed my face at Garden Grill and did not have enough room to try more goodies at Wild Flour 😦 If I lived anywhere near this place, I would be a regular.

Boston Cookies. All Natural. All Vegan.

25 Jan

This Is The One That I Had. Delicious.

These days I am just so in love with vegan treats. I cannot help myself. My newest find was not even intentional. I actually picked up this HUGE all natural Mocha Chocolate Chip cookie at like 4am on my walk from Sullivan Room, to the garage where the car was parked. My trusty bodega is open 24/7 and never lets me down.

I only realized this delicious cookie was vegan when I was eating it like 3 days later and now that I have been on Boston Cookies website I see that all of their products are vegan. The Mocha Chocolate Chip one I had is their ‘Featured Winter Cookie’. Since it’s conception in 1998, Boston Cookies has worked hard to make healthy, all natural vegan products for ‘people who hold strong believes about the ethical treatment of animals’. That to me is awesome. On top of being all natural and vegan, their cookies also have no hydrogenated oils in them and are low-fat. They also have a selection of sugar-free cookies, brownies and shortbread cookies. Yum.

It is nice to see a product like this available at random places. They are also available at Whole Foods, many gourmet and specialty and most natural and health food stores. It is even nicer that you can order whatever you want right off their website πŸ˜‰

All Natural. All Vegan. All Good.
