Inspiration from a Lifelong Vegetarian
– Writing and Photos

2I can’t seem to go to my hometown of Los Angeles without stopping by Real Food Daily. Whether it’s the Santa Monica or the West Hollywood location, I love the creative, delectable food and the stylish atmosphere.¬† My family, a mix of vegetarians, pescatarians, and carnivores, enjoys dining at Real Food Daily often. Someday we need to try the Pasadena spot.

indexAt the Santa Monica locale, the bakery display shines and tempts. Yesterday I happily started my day with an herbal caffeine-free coffee called Teecino, along with a Breakfast Sammie filled with tempeh bacon, chipotle aioli, vegan cheese, and avocado  . . . the list of yummy ingredients goes on. It was great, and a lot of other menu options would have taken the cake as well.

The only thing wrong with this place is that it’s not in San Diego. Our fine coastal city boasts many more herbivorous choices these days, but having a Real Food Daily would move us into the category of a truly veggie-friendly and hip city.
