Eat Here : PositiviTea

20 Dec


New Jersey has really been stepping up its veg game as of late. Which is good cuz in my humble, everything else about NJ is straight, half steppin as of late.

NJ is a crazy place, it’s just nuts. I guess you kind of have to live here to get the full on ‘Jersey Experience’ which is not all that fun at times and never for the faint of heart.

With that said, if you do end up in my state and manage to navigate your way around without having a heart attack or losing a rim, tire or suspension on one of our infamous pot holes…you must check out PositiviTea.

Nestled in downtown Verona, this little spot is truly a gem. Wraps, burgers, waffles, teas and soft serve make this the perfect place to eat till your vegan hearts content. Their burgers are black bean based, their wraps are made with a chickpea based protein and their soft serve in N’Ice Cream, which is off the hook.

Everyone that works at PositiviTea is nice and the place is always clean. Their produce and food are all top-notch (think Whole Foods produce) and everything is prepared fresh to order.

I have been going here almost once a week lately since it’s only like 5 miles from my house. The food is consistently good and I have navigated my way thru many of their meals but I will say their ‘Drunkin Chicken’ is my favorite. And since we all know I can’t say no to sweets, for dessert, I go with an ‘All Jersey’ N’Ice cream sundae.

So next time you find yourself in NJ do yourself a favor, stay of out of the left lane then head to PositiviTea ๐Ÿ˜‰

Restaurant Review: Strong Hearts Cafe.

23 Nov

Strong Hearts Cafe in Syracuse, New York is one of those places that just makes you feel good, before you even get to the food. It is comfortable, comforting and staffed by a crew of truly awesome people. Both times I have been there, everyone was so cool and so helpful. The vibe is low-key and laid back, this is a college town after all and Strong Hearts reflects that in it’s menu options and pricing. Did I mention they serve breakfast, all day as well?

With a menu chock full of rather healthy vegan comfort foods, Strong Hearts brings it on. Grilled Cheese, Toasted PB and J, Milk Shakes and Desserts galore. Teas, coffees and soups are also available. Strong Hearts serves up a side of Eco-Friendly with it’s vegan deliciousness. They do not use styrofoams or plastics, all food waste is composted and the packaging they use is 100% biodegradable and compostable.ย  Add to that, they use locally grown produce, organic and fair trade coffees and teas. When it comes to their food they off up all natural, organic when available, cholesterol free, with no hfcs,ย  artificial sweeteners or trans fats.

Their food is awesome, I have tried a several of the things they serve up and cannot say what I like best. I am a breakfast, all day everyday type of chick so right there, I was sold on this place. If you are into milkshakes then this is your spot, I mean the list goes on and on for days. If you are into healthy fare such as a salad or a wrap then you are covered at Strong Hearts as well. Almost anything you want from mock chicken salad, bbq tempeh, seitan sandwiches and tofurky, are available on their menu.

Strong Hearts is vegan owned and is active in the cruelty-free community and lifestyle. Eating at places like this is not only good for you and the animals but for the planet and the greater cause of it all. It is nice to support those who ‘get it’ if you know what I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰
