And now state 42 in the V.V. record blog: West Virginia.
In the middle of nowhere, West Virginia–the “unincorporated community” of Vegan.
Mission Savvy is the only all-vegan eatery in the entire state. It’s in Charleston, the capital city.
The space is vibrant, like its food offerings–mostly raw, pressed juices, pure and delicious, with an exceptional attention to detail. I loved the labels, the glass jars, the colors.
Knowing I’d face vegan food dearth, I got a bento box to go. And, of course, a delicious juice blend to eat with my meal. I really needed those nutrients.
There is my sandwich: a B.L.T: sprouted bread, lettuce, tomato and tempeh bacon with a creamy cashew cheese. On the side, cafe crackers–rosemary “cheese.” So fresh and delicious. I felt so good after this meal. That’s how it should be!
The Bento box at the motel… “Save the Tuna” pate, carrots/celery, raw kraut, and a veggie-packed lentil-y of sorts. Thank you, Mission Savvy, for some well-needed healthful and whole food sustenance.
I’m heading back to New York tomorrow! But have a few stops on my list. My new car is officially broken in and I’m looking forward to not driving all day… at least for a few days.
