Lov’n it live vegan restaurant review!

Me and my brother Scott Lane at Lov'n it live resturant

Me and my brother Scott Lane at Lov’n it live restaurant

I had a meeting with my brother (Scott Lane ) to help him setup his blog(look for it soon it will be very inspirational) so I asked if he mind going to a vegan restaurant to create his vision?

He didn’t mind!…..(He lives a very healthy  non-vegan lifestyle) So I wanted to check out LOV’N IT LIVE vegan restaurant. It is located at 2796 East Point St. East Point, GA 30344.You can also visit their website at www.lovingitlive.com for more information.

The restaurant has great accommodations for your wi-fi needs and the waitress was very nice and welcoming. I bought the grape apple juice and my brother bought the stuffed avocado and the sea moss juice. Be aware that they will add a $5 dollar fee to your bill for dining in ….:(…..we were not ready for that I have not seen that before. The appetizers, soups and salads range from $12-$16.50. I would recommend LOV’N IT LIVE If this post influences you to check out this spot I would love to hear about your experience.

Revolution Doughnuts &Coffee

2013-12-07 12.35.41Since going vegan a few months back I have had vegan cookies and vegan cupcakes but not doughnuts. I was craving a good ole doughnut. So I begin to research and I found this beautiful place called revolution doughnuts& coffee. The phone number is 678-927-9920 and the address is 908 W. College Ave 30030. The hubby and I arrived and it was beautiful to see all the array of choices that I had to choose from. Along with the fact that the bakery was so packed that we had nowhere to sit so I had to get my fix to go…..lol… This bakery not only sold vegan doughnuts but they also had doughnuts for the non-vegan. I love to see when a bakery caters to everyone. I ordered the below vegan pecan almond doughnut and it was pretty good… a little sweet with a lot bread. (I have not eaten bread in a while so this huge doughnut was a bit overwhelming so I  split it in half with the hubby. I will go back and try other flavors when I feel the need for a fix.

Sevananda Natural Food Market

2013-11-10 15.14.09Sevananda Natural Food Market has just about every thing that you think of that is healthy. I had been there a few times but that was before I had taken on the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. So when I went last week I was so in awe of all the vegan items that they made fresh like cake,cookies,cupcake and field roast grain meat. I could have stay much longer but I had my nephews and I had to take them home. The ride is only 30 minutes from me so I will be going there to get a lot of my vegan goodies. They are located at 467 Moreland Avenue NE Atlanta, GA 30307 and their phone number is 404-681-2831 and they are open 8am-10pm Daily. You can check out their website at http://www.sevananda.coop/ for more information.
