Oh It’s Vegan All Right
Lauren, boyfriend extraordinaire, on his trip to San Diego to drop off his even more extraordinary daughter, Bonnie, for her sophomore year at college.
A number of magical events happen along the way (car breakdowns that turn into miraculous repairs by generous folks on a Sunday afternoon). One of those is having his alternator replaced on a Sunday afternoon in only two hours in Bakersfield.
Not the point of the story however. There’s still a whine so he goes into the local Pep Boys (where the part came from) for a free replacement on Monday. To kill the next four hours he walks the hood. After hours of car dealerships, fast food joints, uninteresting shops (to him at least ), he comes across ‘Loving Hut’ – a vegan cafe! Mostly a raw food guy, he perks up and marches in with a BIG grin. Saved!
Reads the menu. It’s mostly cooked foods, not for him. He spies a cold drink, “Go Green Delight”. Yum. Asks what’s in it. “Orange juice, 7-Up and mint.” Yep, vegan (meaning no meat, no dairy). Good for you? Your choice. Here’s a healthier Green Delight recipe.
