Veg Guide Updates – March 2018

New Vegan Location!   Boon Burger (multiple locations, www.boonburger.ca) has a brand new location in Oakville! The new location is located at 497 Dundas St. W., and is Boon Burger’s fifth Ontario location (a fourth opened in Hamilton in early December). It’s no surprise that the 100% plant-based burger chain, which started in Winnipeg, is rapidly spreading across Ontario. Boon offers unbelievably scrumptious burgers and sides, all made in house from healthy, wholesome ingredients. There are over 20 varieties of burgers, as well as baked fries, poutine, pizza, soups and chili, and daily flavours of dairy-free soft serve ice cream. “Boon continues to sprout and we are so excited to spread the vegan goodness. Together, with the help of our existing partners as well as future partners, it is our hope to continue to offer food that eliminates needless animal suffering. We would like to set the bar for future establishments to realize that it IS possible to run a great business that reduces the footprint on the planet.” Visit Boon in Oakville or one of the other Ontario locations in Barrie, Guelph, Burlington, Hamilton, and visit… Read More

Discount Profile: Live Organic Food Bar

From an anonymous office worker Imagine my delight when I found out that Order It, the food delivery service my office uses, was starting to deliver from Live Organic Food Bar, an all-vegan restaurant. I now have the pleasure of getting lunch from them almost weekly. My favourite two things to order from Live are the Seoul Bowl and the Big Bowl. The Seoul Bowl has a range of delicious flavors with a citrus dressing, kimchi, pickles and marinated portabello mushroom caps. It also comes with a hefty amount of pulled burdock, quinoa and a piece of lightly seared tofu that make the dish quite hearty and filling. It will keep you satiated until dinner time that’s for sure! The Big Bowl is more of a salad and comes with a healthy amount of kale and greens. However, along with it you get a scoop of sunflower hummus that I enjoy to mix in with my fork of greens, and this makes it a satisfying and filling lunch on its own. You get to choose your dressing (I like to go with their ceasar which isn’t exactly the same as a traditional ceasar but… Read More
