I am going on my 3rd week of sticking to a vegan diet and I must say these past few days have been the hardest for me! Being vegan is easy…. until your faced with the challenge of saying no to every egg dish on that glorious brunch menu or it’s your moms birthday at a restaurant known for their succulent and mouthwatering duck. Going out to eat hands down brings out every vegans little devil on their shoulder. That guy doesn’t seem to shut up until the menus are gone!
First off I must say, Standard Market might just be one of my favorite grocery stores. It’s like walking into a farmers market every time! All of the produce is nothing less than perfect and with it being a season for figs, I was able to get the most beautiful fresh figs.
