The Vegan Difference


At The Living Root Cellar (LRC) we realize it’s hard to find healthy and tasty eats—let’s face it, we are drowning in a sea of unhealthy choices. This is why we are committed to providing you with the healthiest vegan options anywhere in town. We believe real food is nutrient dense, and we know that the art of creating flavorful vegan dishes requires we think outside the fast-food box and make things from scratch. We follow a simple rule of thumb—make it real, make it fresh!

To accomplish our goal, we use organic produce for everything on the Dirty Dozen list, we prefer food from known local sources, we always buy non-GMO, and we favor whole over processed ingredients. We know vegan food can be exciting and exceptional, which is why we use lots of herbs and spices and are constantly striving to improve our offerings, adding new menu items frequently.

Another important consideration that motivates our vegan mission, is an understanding of and sensitivity to the growing number of people looking to heal themselves of medical conditions via plant nutrition. If you didn’t already know, the vegan movement is being fueled in part by the clinical evidence that supports the truth that many chronic illnesses can be arrested, prevented and even reversed via a lifestyle that includes regular physical activity, appropriate stress management and a whole food, plant-based diet.
