As I’ve discussed before, vegans can eat so much more than just celery.
Take this week for example.
It was particularly delicious because it included a birthday celebration for my hubby!
We started the day with a savory breakfast:
Tofu scramble (recipe here) and hash browns with hot coffee and So Delicious Coconut Creamer (more amazing dairy alternatives in this post!).
I forgot to take a picture (I was too busy hanging streamers while it cooked!), so here’s the tofu scramble we made for our vegan brunch:
We met at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina (which is on my list of recommended veg-friendly restaurants) for a fun birthday lunch featuring a zingy Shrooms Bowl:
For an after lunch treat, we nibbled on these vegan Cocomels that we found at the new grocery store in Mt. Pleasant, Southern Season.
Hanes chose to go to Xiao Bao Biscuit (also on my list of recommended veg-friendly places!) for a birthday dinner.
This hip little joint on the corner of Spring and Rutledge serves “Asian soul food” from China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
They have vegan options (designated by an asterisk on the menu) for three ‘to-be-shared’ small plates and one vegan main item.
We decided to try the small plates (to save room for birthday cupcakes!) and a couple of creative cocktails:
We topped the celebration off with the birthday boy’s favorite cupcakes: Cookies ‘N’ Cream (from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World)!
As you can see, there was no shortage of birthday deliciousness here!
These compassionate, Earth-friendly, and healthy(-er) foods added even more joy to the celebration of a wonderful, kind, and handsome man.
Consider adding some vegan food or cake to your next birthday. Or go all out with a whole vegan day! In sparing others’ lives, this food is truly a celebration of life.
To Vegan Birthdays!
I see the “Super Hero” birthday card in the cupcake picture! 🙂
Yep! That was a great card! 🙂
