There are some mornings when I wake up thinking, My God! I could eat a pound of bacon...unfortunately, I cant bring myself to do it anymore (all those poor little pigs), but what I can do is slam a handful of the awesome veggie sausages at one of my fave vegan eateries, Lake Side Cafe. This little gem of a place has some of the best veggie links and the line is nothing like Victory Banner. I raved about their veggie polish sausage and now that I'm moving to the 'hood (E. Rogers Park)--really just a few blocks away--I'm gonna have to try every single thing on their menu. They also have those crazy cheap vegetarian cooking classes ($15 each) and just a good, positive vibe rolling around. Time to flip out and get healthy, no???
