Your Heart: Vegan Cheese, Vegenaise...
yumm. But wait, an awesome Market
& Cafe too? Oh
you vegan, vegetarian or lactose intolerant?
Then you've probably tried all the delicious
vegan cheeses and vegenaises made by "Follow
Your Heart". Not only are they available
at your local natural food market
but you can find them at many mainstream markets
as well. They've also recenty updated their
website, and I must say, it looks great! Check

Your Heart: The Cafe
In the heart
of the San Fernando Valley, in the now
historic district of Canoga Park, CA you will
find "Follow Your Heart", the market
There is a market in the front,
and if you keep walking you'll find the restaurant
in the back. You can dine inside, at the counter,
or even outside in a cozy covered patio.
Home style comfort-food and
generous portions make this
place a favorite amongst locals! Their menu
is full of variety, from dairy to non-dairy,
and vegan to now gluten-free options too.
Take a look at some photos of their delicious
So what's my favorite
dish you ask?
I must say: THE LOVE
PLATE! A tradition
at Follow Your Heart since 1971. You get:
- Half a sandwich
- A cup of soup or dinner
- Plus your choice of coffee,
hot or iced tea, or a small juice.
My favorite Love Plate combo is the Reuben
Sandwich + Soup of the Day + Juice!
Your Heart: The Market (and super nice bookstore
as well :)
Within the market you will find everything
you need from local fresh produce and groceries,
to even things like musical instruments and
And my favorite is the little bookstore with
all the latest titles in health, diet, fitness
and more. To tell you the truth, they make
great use of the space and fill up every corner
with unique gifts and items. There is
always something interesting to explore.
Glad I "Followed my Friends"
to "Follow Your Heart", lol: I
actually lived a few blocks down the street
from their restaurant but never knew about
it. BIG thanks to my friends for showing it
to me. Growing up in Brazil I didn't even
know that vegetarian or vegan restaurants
existed, lol... that's probably why I didn't
search for them in the past.
How about you, do you have a favorite
vegan restaurant? And have your tried vegan
cheeses or vegenaise?
