Sunday afternoon was spent strolling the Harbourfront Centre checking out the vendors at the Vegetarian Food Festival. I am not vegan or vegetarian but I try to eat healthy so since my sister-in-law’s future sister-in-law had a booth there, I thought I would check it out. I attended with a friend of mine who also happens to be a meat-eater but she’s recently been on a health kick, testing new recipes and exploring healthy alternatives that I thought she would really benefit from attending. The thing is, I didn’t realize it was her first time down at the Harbourfront Centre. She was so fascinated by the fact this area existed in the city that I couldn’t take her attention off how nice it was. Our conversations went like this:
Me: Yum. Try these vegan cookies
Her: I can’t believe I’ve never been down here before it’s so nice
Me: Oh look! Let’s check out the vegan make up
Her: It’s so close to my house, I mean I saw it when I was running but didn’t realize it was this nice
Me: How cool, yoga in the park!
Her: I wish I brought my parents here, I don’t usually like touristy places but this is so nice
Me: A shark bit off my arm
Her: Wow, is that fake grass? I guess that makes sense and it looks so nice
So needless to say, I’m pretty sure she thought the Harbourfront Centre was nice, how she felt about the Veggie Fest? No clue.
I did however manage to catch her attention when we wandered off and found 3 food containers that were serving organic burgers, hot dogs and lobster rolls. Since we were at the Vegetarian Food Festival but neither of us were ready to try the one week vegetarian challenge, we threw up our hoodies, slipped on our shades and enjoyed the best beef burger we have eaten. It was nice.
