  • Nourish Cafe in San Francisco – as we understand it, the menu is vegan; however, bee pollen can be added to smoothies.  Seed + Salt also uses honey in some of their desserts; what’s with “vegan” restaurants using products from bees?
    • Please, let’s all be bee friends and not exploit or use the life’s work of this industrious little creature.  (Their lifespan is short, like 6-7 weeks, and according to the National Honey Board, it takes them that entire time to produce 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey. )  Lots of great alternatives to honey, and one of the easiest items to replace in your pantry.

Eat Vegan and Be Happy

BAVeg has been doing vegan outreach monthly at the Vallejo Farmer’s Market’s since October, regularly distributing 500-600 leaflets each time.

In November, we had out first Vegan Food Party (VFP, aka potluck) with approx 20 people. At our second VFP in January, we had approx 25 people, including Vallejo’s own vegan body building Champion, Kenneth Williams.

With such wonderful discussions of future Vallejo vegan business ventures including a food truck  and a grocery store, learning that Vallejo’s mayor is vegan, and existing vegan-owned businesses like a yoga studio and bookstore, visions of a Vegan Vallejo are dancing in our hearts.
