Apologies again for how long this has taken to post. The Canadian tour has come and gone and it was an amazing time. We are in Europe now but I still want to cover the biggest city in Canada. Toronto, as most major cities do, have plenty of options when it comes to Vegan dining. I'll start with a place that opened up just a few months ago called Hot Beans in the Kensington market neighborhood. I got two tacos. One with the TVP strips and one with jackfruit. I liked the jackfruit idea as its this fruit they marinate that has a very meaty or faux meat type of texture. I had a side of rice and beans which I got smothered with their nacho 'cheese' and guacamole. Certainly will be going back here next time I'm in town.
One of my favourite places to go for breakfast in Toronto is Sadie's Diner. It is not fully vegan but there are many things that can be done vegan there. I always get vegan Heuvos Rancheros as I tend to be a creature of habit with my favourite breakfast spots. They also make a lot of different fresh juices in house which is always a great addition to any breakfast.

Cruda cafe is another raw place but it's more of a quick takeaway type of 'fastfood place'. I've been here several times and it and have never been disappointed. It is located in the basement of the St. Lawrence Market.

Another raw place that I checked out was Rawlicious. I got the nori rolls and pizza. The nori rolls basically tasted like a salad wrapped in seaweed which didn't do too much for me but the pizza was amazing. One of my favourite things about raw food is I find I don't overeat as much and not for lack of enjoying the food. It seems when I'm eating pasta or other cooked food I can very easily gorge myself. I think when my heavy touring days are over I'm going to transition to raw veganism as I'm convinced this is the healthy way to go. I don't find it hard being vegan on the road but definitely take my hat off to those that can pull off raw veganism while traveling extensively.
