"..won’t satisfy everyone’s tastes and wants. It is too small to do that and too smart to try." Boston Globe

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.
