The next Milwaukee Vegan Meetup will be at the Fresh Eco Cafe & Juice Bar in Mequon. I've only made it here once since Mequon is a bit of a hike for me on an average day, but it was TOTALLY worth it. It has a casual cafe atmosphere and you usually order at the counter and they bring the food to you.
Pictured to the left you can see my Italian Tofu sandwich with a side of some kind of mashed potatoes which were amazing! It has been about a year since I've been there, but what I can tell you is that they really take care in putting together delicious, flavorful healthy food. There's a copy of their catering menu online, although the restaurant does not have a full website.
Unfortunately I'm going to miss this meetup since I'll be in Key West (reports of awesome vegan vacation food to follow soon thereafter!), but I highly recommend this meetup, especially if you don't make it out to Mequon too often because this is a great chance to try something new with a bunch of awesome like-minded people! In addition, this restaurant is the site of the upcoming Raw Foods Dinner & Demo, so check out some of their raw dishes or desserts and then sign up for the dinner-demo too!
When: Saturday June 2 at Noon
Where: Fresh Eco Cafe & Juice Bar
Address: 10994 N Port Washington Rd, Mequon, WI
RSVP on the Vegan Meetup site and make sure it's accurate because the restaurant will need a head-count!
Have you ever been interested in raw foods? Well, now is the chance to have a delicious vegan raw foods dinner and learn how to prepare it! Not only that, but it benefits a great cause--the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
To get an idea of what you're in for with this fantastic event, take a look at Sharon Kleigman's YouTube Demo of raw zucchini spaghetti preparation. Sharon is an RN, certified Food-for-Life Instructor and personal trainer, so you'll be in good hands as you learn more about raw foods.
