Just because it’s vegan, doesn’t make it healthy!

I have hit up (and been dreaming about) Red Bamboo, that vegan soul food cafe I described previously, a lot lately. Even though the food is vegan, that doesn’t make it healthy. I mean the fake meat is breaded, and fried a lot of the time, and I’m sure that the sauces are stacked with calories. I was trying to find some information about the nutritional information of a No-Chicken Parm Sandwich, but couldn’t find much of anything. I think that a lot of people get tricked into thinking that just because food is vegetarian or vegan, that it is automatically healthy. Vegan food in particular can be particularly unhealthy, loaded with sugars and fats to try to entice meat-lovers. I don’t think that vegan food needs all of that and in general really enjoy simply foods, with light sauces, grilled not fried. Please share you comments/ideas on the issue!

    If you and your family find it hard to eat the recommended 9-13 servings of raw fruits and veggies everyday, then you’re going to LOVE this:
    Did you know you can get 17 raw fruits and vegetables in CAPSULE Form or Chewable GUMMIES?? It’s called Juice Plus+

    It’s been the easiest way for my family to get more of the nutrition they need every day, no matter how busy we often get!! Take a minute to watch the video on how Juice Plus Capsules are made: http://www.ReviewJuicePlus.com

    It’s so simple and affordable, just 1.40 a day for adults and kids are .80 a day.

    PLUS, any child between the ages of 4-18 can receive their Juice Plus absolutely FREE, as long as a parent agrees to take Juice Plus too. Call 775-450-7520 for more information!
