I’m not a vegan, but I can shop like one
On Sunday, we were invited to join some friends at Posto in Davis Square for brunch. The wood fired pizzas at Posto are spectacular – and they’re made to the standards of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, which means that they use the same ingredients and techniques as used in and around Naples. For brunch, I had the Ham & Eggs Pizza, which has two soft eggs, rosemary ham, Vermont cheddar cheese and served with home fries. I also nibbled on some warm sweet rolls which the table shared. A Grey Goose and OJ rounded out the meal.
Since we don’t often walk from Davis Square to Harvard Square – and Sunday was a gorgeous Spring day – we decided to take a stroll. This stretch of Massachusetts Avenue is filled with locally-owned shops and restaurants, barely a national chain store amongst them. We ventured in and out of a few shops – my favorite being Sudo Shoes, Cambridge’s only shoe store featuring completely vegan footwear. While I have many friends who are vegans, I have never had the desire to remove meat from my diet. I don’t mind, however, wearing a stylish pair of Macbeth sneakers.
Give up sirloin and bacon? Never. Wear synthetic suede? Sure.
