‘Up to the vegan challenge’ asks Brent Meersman?

Thanks to @Brent_Meersman the ‘vegan’ word is spreading and so is the ‘vegan challenge’… In a full-page article featured in @Mail&Guardian, dated 17th April 2015, Brent writes a considered and thoughtful take on veganism. He sheds light on how many more options there are available and how with some thought it becomes more accessible and some planning you don’t fall into the ’traps’. He also reminds everyone, its baby steps and it does not have to be overwhelming…

Plant Wellness in the City

Plant Restaurant Cape TownGreen is the new Black. And ‘Herbivore is the new Carnivore’. Well that is according to Wellness in the City and we are happy to agree… We were so chuffed with the review they gave Plant and it is ever-pleasing to hear yet another meat-eating critic has enjoyed a meat-free meal. Delighted to be saving the animals and saving the earth, one meal at a time…

“This little spot is so much more than just a health café. They are vegan enthusiasts who strive to create awareness of animal exploitation throughout South Africa (they’ve won us over already). Like the name implies their vision is to promote a gentler and more compassionate lifestyle by making plant based options, i.e. seek bacon elsewhere! For those Banting fanatics, you’ll be happy to know that their meals are high in protein and offer meat substitutes that surprisingly don’t taste like vrot takkie.”

Mexican Monday at Plant

How do you beat the Monday blues? Are you also dreading Monday morning on Sundays already? I definitely do, but I think the best way to get into a new week is by starting it the way the last one ended. With that I mean good food and drinks as well as happy people. Plant hosted its first Mexican Monday yesterday and I’m sure most people that joined the “FIESTA”, soon forgot their Monday Blues. The vibe at Plant was fantastic as always and even a cheerful birthday celebration was going on. The mouth- watering menu with a Mexican twist made it hard for people to decide what to order. Starters included legendary chili poppers as well as a tasty nacho bowls which were great to share for the whole table. I also had difficulties to decide for the main course… on recommendation of one of the friendly staff members I opted for a bun-less “Mexican” tower. Have a look at the picture.. it speaks for itself, doesn’t it?
