Going Vegan in Houston: Where to Get Your Grub

Earlier this week, we featured some stunning vegan donuts from local vegan and gluten-free baker Jodycakes. Even in a carnivorous city like Houston, eating vegan can be done -- and done surprisingly well.

Jodycakes isn't the only vegan baker in town; Sinfull Bakery's vegan cookies and other sweet treats are sold in grocery stores and coffee shops throughout the city, making it easy to pick up a snack if you're on the run or suddenly craving sugar.

Also easy to pick up around town are the pre-packaged vegan meals from Radical Eats, which are sold at farmers' markets and coffee shops like Antidote and Black Hole; just heat and eat. Luckily, Radical Eats also has its own standalone restaurant now, serving vegan tamales, tacos and tortas at lunch and dinner and a wickedly good vegan brunch on Sundays.

But Radical Eats is far from alone.
