Veggie Planet Galaxy Universe

The past week has been such a whirlwind – for me, and for the country.

I flew up to Boston Friday night to visit my friend Bailey.

She’s a strict vegetarian turned Vegan, who has mad skills in the kitchen. So the food I’ve been eating has been meatless but delicious. We went to a hole in the wall vegetarian restaurant the first day I was in town called Veggie Planet (interestingly, a new vegetarian restaurant just opened in another part of town called Veggie Galaxy…sounds like a copy cat to me!). They offer vegetarian or vegan options that you can have on pizza dough, rice, or brown rice. Everything was delicious, and I even indulged in a non-diet Root Beer soda. Mmm-mm! I ordered the Unsafe & Sound. mozzarella, Basil, and spicy pepper sauce. Delicious!

After long discussions with Bailey and reading the book Eating Animals by Jonathan Foer, I’ve decided to give up meat and poultry for Lent. So here at Tasty Politics we’re going to be embarking on a whole new taste adventure!

Also, we met an adorable dog. His name was Wallace:

Now, onto the state of our Nation!

The Wisconsin Assembly approved a portion of the union bill, limiting collective bargaining rights for public unions. ~ Fox News

and Hearings began on the radicalization of Muslim-Americans. ~ CNN

There’s so much going on but these have been the three things that have caught my attention over the past few days.

I’ll be posting more photos soon. Unfortunately I left my camera’s connector cable in Florida so it’ll be a few more days before I get them up. Until then I’ll continue to snap shots of all the sights I see in Philly (because that’s where I am now, didn’t I mention that?) and all the delicious food I eat!

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed everything so much – those root beers are worth the indulgence!

    I hope you will come back to check out Veggie Galaxy. It’s not so much a copycat, but rather our sister restaurant. Opening late this summer in central square, it’s going to be a vegetarian and vegan classic american diner with vegan bakery!

    • Oh really? I thought it was funny that the names were so similar. If I am ever in the area I will definitely stop in again!

      I wish we had a Veggie Planet (Or Galaxy) where I live!

  2. How about Doggy Planet? We could feature Wallace on the marquee… feed the animals and scratch thier bellies.
