3) GREAT SAGE BENEFIT DAY

On a beautiful Sunday morning, I volunteered for The Vegetarian Resource Group at Great Sage, a fully vegan restaurant part of the Conscious Corner located in Clarksville, Maryland. Conscious Corner is a family of businesses dedicated to promoting healthy and mindful living by focusing on animal welfare, the environment, and community. Great Sage’s bold brunch menu features international flavors and organic ingredients with dishes such as a decadent cinnamon roll, a Cajun “chicken” sandwich, soba noodle salad, and much more. Along with hosting live music events that feature local musicians, Great Sage also supports non-profit organizations by hosting benefit days. On April 17, 2016, Great Sage hosted a benefit day for The Vegetarian Resource Group to which they donated 10% of proceeds of the day’s sales.

As a high school intern, I greatly benefited from volunteering and spending time with VRG’s dietetic intern, who answered my countless questions about vegan diets during our time at the restaurant. We discussed everything from the importance of B12 for vegans and dietitian certification levels to farmers’ markets, Thanksgiving, and recipes for coconut bacon and avocado pie crust. Situated near the waiting area, we attracted a number of patrons who took interest in the VRG literature we set out, including pamphlets, recipe books, the Vegetarian Journal, and restaurant guides. The younger restaurant-goers enjoyed VRG’s coloring book I Love Animals and Broccoli. It was an honor to spend my Sunday surrounded by friendly and inquisitive patrons in the warm and inviting atmosphere of Great Sage, and I hope to visit the restaurant again soon to enjoy a satisfying vegan meal! For information about Great Sage, see

7) GLORY DONUTS

By Brigette Dumais

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Glory Donuts in Frederick, Maryland. The owners of Glory Donuts are concerned with reducing the impact of climate change, promoting animal welfare, and conserving natural resources, so the entire menu and donut selection at Glory Donuts is vegan.

As a vegan, I love when I am able to walk into a restaurant and have the ability to order anything on the menu! Glory Donuts offers a wide variety of donuts including unique flavors such as Rosewater and Earl Gray. I arrived at Glory Donuts at 11 AM on a Saturday, and unfortunately they were all sold out of donuts! The woman who was working there informed me that they usually sell out of donuts around 10 am on the weekends, so make sure you get there bright and early!

Luckily, Glory Donuts has a full breakfast menu so I didn’t drive an hour for nothing. I ordered the pancakes. But these weren’t just any pancakes, they were glorious, deep dish pancakes! Instead of flipping cakes on the griddle, the chef at Glory Donuts puts pancake batter and seasonal fruits into a cast iron pan and bakes it for twenty minutes. The pancakes are totally worth the wait, they were the best I’ve ever had.

My partner has less of a sweet tooth than I do, so he ordered the Tofu Fried Egg Sandwich. It looked beautiful and I was thrilled that my partner shared a bite with me. The Fried Egg Sandwich was savory, bold and healthy. I am excited to make another trip to Glory Donuts, and I am going to make sure I arrive early so I can finally taste the donuts I’ve been hearing so much about!

8) ORGANIC VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN MEALS DELIVERED TO YOUR HOME OR OFFICE

Trifecta Sweet Potato “Mash” with Brussels Sprouts

By Maria Pittarelli, DTR

I was able to sample one of the refrigerated meals from Trifecta organic meal delivery service. This meal is called Sweet Potato "Mash" with Brussels Sprouts. It was labeled as vegetarian, and the ingredient list shows that it is actually vegan. When I heated it up and opened it, it looked like mashed potatoes with some halved Brussels sprouts, slices of bell pepper, and onion pieces. I was surprised it wasn't orange, but perhaps they use white sweet potatoes. I found the recommended heating time to be accurate. After three minutes, the meal was consistently hot throughout. Our volunteer coordinator tried it as well, and said "If it were a little spicier, this would taste like Indian food! Very good." It is creamy with a strong herbal flavor, and the ingredients show tarragon, parsley, basil, thyme, and marjoram. This meal is more sweet than savory, which may appeal to some people. The larger chunks of vegetables provided some texture contrast, but they were still cooked soft. This is a great way to sneak in Brussels sprouts for people who may not generally enjoy them, as they are well disguised. I appreciated the presence of an ingredients list and a nutrition facts label, which showed that this meal contains:

  • 370 calories
  • 8 grams fat
  • 345 mg sodium
  • 65 grams carbohydrates
  • 13 grams fiber
  • 25 g sugar
  • 9 g protein

I like that this meal is low in fat, relatively low in sodium for a packaged meal, and has no added sugars. It has an impressive amount of fiber, over half of the daily recommended amount. After finishing the meal, I was mostly satisfied. For those of you who use nutrition tracking apps, I will report that it did not recognize the barcode on the meal but did provide all the necessarily nutrition information to enter it. At 370 calories, it's a bit small for a complete meal for an adult. I really liked the concept of this meal, with sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts being two of my favorite foods. Though I personally don't care for tarragon.

11) VIRGINIA VEGETARIAN WEEKEND — TREAT YOURSELF!

To Whom it May Concern:

I run a Virginia bed & breakfast in the Northern part of the Shenandoah Valley with the distinct flavor of Japan. As my Chef mostly eats vegetarian, we thought it would be a great idea to host a vegetarian weekend so we set the date for July 15th & 16th. Unfortunately, the majority of inquiries for that weekend deflected to other dates once they found out that it is a vegetarian weekend. I currently have several rooms available.

The Pine & Cedar rooms are $302.64 per night and the Oak room is $356.29 per night. The rates are for up to 2 Guests and include the vegetarian meals of the multi course dinner and the breakfast, the Japanese baths and the taxes.
