10,000 Tastes, 10 Billion Reasons

Cute furry thing

Yonge and Dundas, food/product tents!

The Gardien tent, where meatless burgers were being served, free!

BBQ'd patty with mustard and ketchup

The insides. Surprisingly REALLY good! I had seconds on the way home.

Free Silk True Almond. They were handing out so many of these, we must have had 8. Dark chocolate is so good!

Stir-fry tofu from Sunrise Soya, in some kind of sweet and sour sauce. It was...eh.

Soy and coconut based yogurt samples from YOSO!

Strawberry soy yogurt in the back and a coconut based chocolate yogurt in front. The strawberry was delicious!

Richard had a nice conversation with the reps for SunWarrior and is thinking about switching protein powders...!

Vegan cookies made by New Moon Kitchen. They baked up 10,000+ cookies for people to try!


Rich and I tried the 'Mackies' which are like chocolate macaroons and the chocolate chip. Both delish, but I make better ;)

Drinking some Silk dark chocolate almond milk. You can see me in his sunglasses!

Daiya, vegan cheese! I've never had it, but I've heard good things about it. Especially it's melt-a-bility.
Haha, he thought the cheese was revolting. Why? Probably because it was really..cheesy tasting. Like..sharp cheddar and it was stinky.

Overall, amazing event! Lots of people showed up (free food, who wouldn't?) and I think it was a great success. I'm pretty sure 50% of those who just walked past to see what was going on and had a burger didn't know it was meatless. I guess that's the whole point. To get people to try meat-free, dairy free without promoting that it was a vegetarian event. 'Cause you know..once the word vegetarian or vegan pops up, some people immediately think...rabbit food without giving it a chance. :)

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
