Brody’s Bakery

Had an afternoon meeting closer to my side of town, so I headed back home this morning. Good thing, because there was a wonderful package waiting on my front porch, courtesy of Brody’s Bakery!

Brody’s is a vegan bakery near Kansas City, MO that uses organic and natural ingredients. They make everything from birthday cakes and pies, to truffles and breads (all can be made gluten-free or specialized for other allergies) and ship everywhere. The uber gorgeous Katie informed me that this ginormous stash can be frozen, but will keep fresh for a while, since they don’t use any eggs/dairy/animal products.

Took Julius on a short walk – baby, it’s HOT outside!

I brought some food from the 90210 home back with me – made a lox sandwich on TJ’s Multigrain with some grainy mustard

One of the many projects I’m currently working on is developing a feature film to star in. I met with the screenwriter at Chado Tea Room – I’ve been to the Pasadena one before for a baby shower but this was my first time at the location downtown.

They had some freshly brewed iced teas “on tap” -

I got the White Champagne Raspberry – the tea leaves were slightly sweet from the champagne/raspberry – very refreshing.

There was a lot of it – I took what was in the small carafe to-go.

Munched on one of Brody’s Bakery’s Breakfast Bars (say that 10x fast) before hopping back into my oven, I mean, car.

The bar was a yummy way to get an on-the-go meal – thick, hearty, and filling. It kinda tasted like chocolate chip banana bread with a lot of oats – very homemade. In fact, the individually wrapped packaging made me feel like they were made specially for me, with love.

Here’s what’s in them:

Can’t wait to try the rest of my vegan treats – especially intrigued by the Un-Twinkies:

Thanks, Katie! Even though I’m not vegan, I love everything that your company is about, raising awareness about Autism, Cruelty-free and organic food, while making it all delicious and fun at the same time. (Julius appreciates all the doggie volunteer work you do too!)

Vegan gluten-free twinkies?! I’m not sure I could put into words how good those sound

Wow! That White Champagne Raspberry tea you ordered sounds and looks like pure satisfaction on a hot summer day. If I lived in LA, I’d go to the Chado Tea Room right now just to try that drink. Good luck with the feature film!

What a wonderful company…baking for a cause! Although I’m not vegan, I love finding and making vegan baked goods. I loved your pink lunch…I have been missing grapefruits…they are my go to fruit during the winter months.

There’s something about fruity drinks in one of those see-through decanters that just SCREAMS summer to me :)

That drink just looked incredibly fresh and made me thirsty. I wouldn’t mind trying the untwinkies either. Yummy!
