Lunch & Sunday Brunch at Melt Eclectic Cafe And a Stop at Picnic and Pantry in Cincinnati, OH

Vegan Cincinnati – Lunch & Sunday Brunch at Melt Eclectic Cafe And a Stop at Picnic and Pantry

I live in NYC now, but Cincinnati is my hometown and one of my favorite cities in America. Each time I visit, I go to Melt Eclectic Cafe for lunch or Sunday brunch. It’s a favorite among locals and is located in a cool part of town called Northside. Though it’s very vegan and vegetarian friendly, the cafe also serves meat and dairy cheese, so its versatility makes Melt a wonderful spot to go to with my friends and family who aren’t veggie like me. We can all eat in harmony!

Off The Vine Offers Cold Pressed Juice and Nut Milk From Scratch in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine

America has been hit by a juice craze that’s making many of us drop $55 or more on a colorful liquid cleanse. In New York City, we have so many juice spots that it’s hard to walk around Manhattan without stumbling upon a Juice Generation or Juice Press, two of the more well-known places that have popped up there. But it’s not just NYC that’s sippin’ on juice and juice. The craze has come to my hometown, Cincinnati, with Off The Vine juice bar.

These Awesome Food Products Will Help You Transition to a Plant-Based, Vegan or Vegetarian Diet

In 2013, I decided to stop eating yogurt and try more of a vegan diet. I was a vegetarian at the time. Now, I consider myself a plant-based eater or a 99% vegan. I eat primarily plants, but I occasionally have dairy depending on the situation (like a birthday party where the cake has already been baked).

This blog is for people who want to make better eating choices, who want to eat more plant-based and need resources. I am not interested in making people feel excluded or like they need to be perfect. I often wonder if the more militant vegans understand that their tactics actually turn people away from veganism. I am interested in helping people eat less meat and dairy (or none at all!), not scaring them away from the vegan message of compassion.
