My Anniversary Month trip to Canada with my husband (of 19 years 💝) was a culinary experience to remember!
One of the highlights from our time in Vancouver BC was the discovery and visit to this plant based cafe in North Van. It was also our very first time boarding the Sea Bus for a fun 20 minute ride over. We didn’t have to go far from the water, which was great since we were on foot. The ‘port’, or so it seemed to be one to me, had a buzzing with activity boardwalk and mall, jam packed with a wide variety of shops, cafes, including a Kombucha growler refilling hang out and a farmers market stand. The Plaza outside had great views over the water looking back out at Downtown Vancouver.
I got goosebumps as soon as we walked through the doors of Cafe by Tao. I was jumping out of my skin with excitement and sheer bliss looking at the products on the shelves and in the cooler, already dreaming of how much I could carry away with me.
Not to mention reading the menu…Ahhhhhh.
If you think I’m exaggerating, just ask Kerwin. He was right there watching me and laughing.
Who knew 2 years ago that I’d be so excited over (non pasta, non pastry, non potato chips, non cheesecake) food?! I certainly didn’t.
Here’s a video flashback to afterwards, as we were leaving.
Now that the stage is set…the reason for ‘this’ blog LOL is to share a raw food win – I made the ‘to die for’ Dill Nut Cheese for the first time today and am in heaven!
It tastes almost exactly as I remember it!
I spread it, nice and thick, on the matching ‘to die for’ raw onion bread I had a freshly made batch of. Pictured ⬇️. Needing a tasty topping for the bread is what actually triggered me to finally pull up this recipe and give it a go.
It’s food like this that makes me laugh when I tell people I eat raw and they say “oh. Don’t you get tired of eating salads?” Nope. lol.
Part of this life journey I’m on is about celebrating the joys, wins, and delicious food, so instead of simply sharing a picture on Facebook, I am choosing to savor this moment with an intentional post.
For this Dill Cheese recipe and more check out Cafe by Tao!
I promise I’ll share more about our day and incredible eating experience at Cafe by Tao in another post. 😊
