I ate at Northstar for lunch yesterday. It’s by far my favorite Columbus restaurant. Nearly everything can be made veggie and nearly everything is organic.
I ordered the Village Salad, which I am sure is one of the best salads I’ve ever laid mouth on. Dates, avocado, tomatoes, corn, roasted almonds and perfectly seared tofu. Did I mention rosemary foccacia? Drool.
When I realized that the guy at the register was the same one who took my order a mere 24 hours ago, I quickly said, “Hi, yes, I was here yesterday…that’s embarassing.”
He laughed and replied, “Oh, it’s ok! Yesterday I worked from ten to eight and three people came in for breakfast and then again later for dinner.” What a sweetheart. Droolworthy food and service. 🙂

On a more serious note, the vegan gods are crying.
What I mean is that I ate Fage greek yogurt today. I was in dire need of probiotics and I really missed my old best friend. Of course there are plenty of vegan sources of probiotics, like non-dairy yogurt and fermented vegetables, but those just weren’t cutting it for me.
It was staring at me at Target today, begging to be bought. I just couldn’t resist.
Assemble the goods attractively, pray to the vegan gods for forgiveness, and dive in to a big bowl of sin.
