We here in America are so blessed with everything we have and the things that most of us don’t have we could probably still do without.  Our neighbor Haiti has endured something so devastating, so incredibly sad, how could one not do anything about it.  Children are without their parents roaming the streets.  The images I have seen have ripped my heart out. It makes me grab my son Jasper a little tighter and count my blessings.

The amazing vegan community has organized bakesales across the nation and we are doing our part this Saturday!!  Please join us at the soon-to-be Sugar Plum Vegan Cafe at 2315 K street in Midtown Sacramento.  We will have lots of SPV treats as well as homemade goodies from lovely vegans in the area.  Organic and Fair Trade Coffee will be served as well.

You can also catch a glimpse of our cafe makeover.  We are working hard to paint and patch and get it open but aren’t there yet.  Excuse the dust and come see your local vegan cafe in the making.  Suggestions are welcome as well.

I want Sugar Plum Vegan Cafe to me a mecca for vegans.  A home away from home.  I open my arms and heart to you all as my family.  Think of this cafe as yours and join me in this beautiful adventure.

See you Saturday!!

Well I got the keys for the Sugar Plum Vegan Cafe on December 1st and honestly it’s been a slow month for progress due to the personal problems I have been having.

I am in the midst of a beak up with my partner and it has taken up a lot of my time along with maintaining the wholesale accounts I have.  It has not been an easy month but I am finding the power and strength within myself to continue on in this venture.  And know that it is not alone.  I have found some amazing helpers these past few weeks and have had so much support from family, friends and those invested in the cafe.  Thank you all as well as my current accounts that have endure some changes due to all of this.  And I also apologize to those who may have missed out on getting some SPV goodies due to my scatter brain these past few weeks.  I have taken on many roles: mother and father, baker, marketer, accountant, business owner and more and some things may have fallen through the cracks.

I have dedicated 2010 to be the year of the vegan.  So many good things are going to happen to our community both locally and nationally.  This is not a trend folks, this is a lifestyle that stands for all things good in this world.  Our heart, minds and hands are pure and free from the blood of another being.  And as we enter this new decade, others will come to see that our way of living is the only way we are going to be able to endure without killing our Mother Earth.  Let 2010 and beyond be an awakening to all of us that life is sacred and beautiful.  Cherish it and those around you.

I am not much of a resolution person but I will try my hardest to post to this blog on a regular basis.  Whether it be a journal entry, update, recipe, review, I will get something up here at least once a week. I encourage you all to follow my blog, comment and let me know what you think.

Bright Blessings to all of you for 2010.

Melissa Sugar
