Its been hard finding restaurants in Maine that cater to a vegan lifestyle. There are some, especially in the big city of Portland, but thats almost an hour from us and frankly, I'd rather eat close to home when I can. We've been doing a lot of cooking for ourselves, which I love, but it would be nice to occasionally order out and not have any dishes to wash.
Last week we finally found a restaurant that we love...and its close to home! Located in Damariscotta, Savory Maine offers a little bit of everything. They are familiar with the vegan lifestyle and willing to accomodate to it. Gluten-free? Vegetarian? They've got your backs, too.
My first trip in I ordered their Tempeh-based Reuben with homemade vegan potato salad and I've been craving it ever since. Though I wish I could eat there every night, I just can't afford it. I needed to quell the craving...so I came up with my very own recipe!

Lately we've been enjoying trying all kinds of new things. Being in Maine has allowed us to try a lot of new (to us), Maine made products. Having expendable cash has allowed us to splurge a little and try some new national vegan product releases, as well.
We're here to share some of our very favorites from the last few weeks.
I'm a sandwich kind of girl. I love them. You can put just about anything in between two pieces of something bread-like and call it a sandwich. Usually portable, they've been around as long as history can remember.
In 2006, a court in Massachusettes determined that a sandwich does indeed need to include at least two slices of bread, differentiating it from items eaten in a tortilla and ending a dispute between Panera Bread and Qdoba. Yep. That really happened.
But either way, I love things stuck between two slices of bread or on a single piece, open-faced style. This tangy salad travels well, so wrap it up in a jar or bring that bread and munch on it anywhere you go.

Creating and eating delicious vegan food and sharing it with other people is something I love doing. I dabble in gluten free, sugar free, and raw recipes. The ultimate goal is ongoing health and wellness, with some treats sprinkled in along the way!
