Vegan shopping heaven

I love cooking and making our food from scratch. Obviously. But I get such a thrill out of being able to buy food that I actually want to eat, rather than standing depressed in the middle of a food court with little to no options or settling for an unimaginative vegetarian pasta or salad.

On a wonderful friend's recommendation, I recently went to About Life Natural Marketplace in Rozelle, Sydney. It is a whole foods/health food supermarket with a cafe attached. They have quite a lot of vegan products that I see (drool over) on American blogs such as Amy's Kitchen products.

The thing that really impressed me was the amazing array of ready made raw desserts, such as tiramisu, cheesecake, energy balls and chia puddings. They also have a fantastic selection of drinks such as green smoothies (with all of those vegan super foods added!), vegan sweet slices, snacks, salads and other meals.

This raw tiramisu was the highlight. 

I must try to replicate this. 

I'm looking forward to going back there for a meal and more raw desserts.

Here are a few of the other random goodies we bought:

Afterwards, we popped into The Cruelty Free Shop. Total treat!
