All Things Vegan ~ Show Notes ~ February 14, 2012

Breast Cancer and a vegan diet: Bend resident Kristin Luck takes charge of her own treatment plan. Also, we talk with Angeline of Angeline’s Bakery & Cafe in Sisters about her creative vegan raw dishes and baked goods.

In today’s show, Bend resident Kristin Luck tells us the story of how a chance meeting, just prior to her breast cancer diagnosis, prompted her to take an active role in her own treatment plan and dramatically transform her health by adopting a plant-based diet.

We also talk with Angeline Rhett and her son Simon, of Angeline’s Bakery in Sisters, where for the past 15 years, Angeline has run a thriving cafe serving up lots of creative raw vegan dishes and tempting vegan baked goods.

And, as always, we highlight and analyze News from the Vegan Frontier, let you know about vegan related happenings in and around Central Oregon, and more!

Goodies from BTBS

New to Bend’s restaurant and pub scene in 2012, Broken Top Bottle Shop and Ale Cafe has numerous vegan items on the menu, and often a vegan special or two. Vegan menu items are clearly marked as vegan and the menu has helpful suggestions for making other items vegan. Some of the selections created by Chef Bethlyn Rider include: the Tempeh Reuben sandwich with sauerkraut and (by special request) Thousand Island dressing made vegan with Vegenaise, the French Style Philly dip made with Portobello mushrooms and caramelized onions, served with veggie au jus, and the vegan Faux Sho egg-less salad and Faux Sho chicken-less chicken salad. For more information, see btbsbend.com or BrokenTopBottleShop. Located at 1740 NW Pence Lane (just off College Way).
