Vegan Loose in Montreal

Happy Easter!

Spending the long weekend in Montreal, we went for lunch Saturday at Aux Vivres. It was ah-maz-ing!!!

To start we ordered the Cornbread and Guacamole. We devoured it so fast I almost forgot to snap a pic.

I couldn't decide (because everything looked, sounded and smelled so good) and ended up ordering the Gyro. Wow, Seitan at it's best. The tzatziki was so flavourful and I was stuffed with this big bad boy.

Jim got the B.L.T. (coconut flakes were smokey and salty, very bacon-like) this was quite delicious.

The creamsicle smoothie contained: coconut milk, orange juice, carrot juice and vanilla.
Thick and creamy yet not too sweet. 

We didn't have room for dessert but I had my eye on this guy (uncheesecake)! 
Jim liked the name : Fauxmage

Their Menu (drool).

If I ever head back to Montreal this resto will be my first stop.

we also popped into the wonderful Vegan store for some items. I picked up Sweet & Sara marshmallows, lip balm and gum.

We grabbed breakfast smoothies one morning from Liquid Nutrition. I love it because they use Vega powder, it's a sure way to fill up on delicious protein. I got the one called "Very Vegan Good" it's where berries and chocolate meet!

Have you been to Aux Vivres or Liquid Nutrition?
