What’s a vegan to do in Fort Wayne when left without an array of options from a get-it-and-get fast food joint or a sit-down restaurant? If that vegan is any kind of a cook, then the best choice is the at-home meal plan.
“They always want to offer you salad and that’s it,” said vegan Cicely Forte’-Wright, talking about the limited options presented by restaurants. “Since we’ve transitioned to being vegans, it’s been a struggle here and there when it comes to certain places.”
In Fort Wayne, the limited options include the Loving Café at 7605 Coldwater Road. Vegan food joints can be found all over Indianapolis though.
After transitioning to all-in vegans (with a short layover as vegetarians), eating at home created the opportunity for Cicely and her wife of 4 years Ayesha to start their second business together, Black Seed Vegans, a catering venture currently in its first four months.
