About Catherine Giudici

A proud Coug, she graduated from WSU with a B.A. in Advertising going on to the likes of Wexley School for Girls, Seattle Weekly and Taco Del Mar “Corporate”. After eating copious amounts of exotic—and not so exotic—meat on a trip to Kenya, Catherine returned to the States craving anything and everything without a face. The vegan affair began and after four years, she’s a self-proclaimed “opportunistic vegan”, cheating on her lover for very special occasions. Catherine reps 206 on the daily and has been for 20 years. Like a true Seattleite, she owns Birkenstocks, rides the Metro and loves the smell of rain.
Meatless Mondays: Vegan Pizza Pi
It’s OMG goodness at this U District piezon eatery. Charming couple Darcy and Charles run Vegan Pizza Pi in the University District. With their extensive menu and impressive combinations, I now refer to them as the “Vegan People Pleasers.” Surprisingly, you won’t find the word “tofu” anywhere on their menu. These VPPs are here to make you happy in fun and interesting ways. (more…)
Meatless Mondays: Thrive
Don’t be suspicious of uncooked fare — embrace it! Raw. There, I said it — but don’t be afraid. Both meat-eaters and vegetarians flock to Thrive for healthy, surprisingly hearty choices. Gluten and dairy-free, organic and raw (which means the temperature doesn’t exceed 118 degrees), one might wonder, “what do they serve?” (more…)
Meatless Mondays: Plum Bistro
A lesson in luxurious vegan cuisine. Be sure to wear your fanciest skinny jeans when you dine at Plum Bistro. This tasteful Capitol Hill restaurant showcases fine dining, vegan-style. (more…)
Meatless Mondays: Wayward Vegan Cafe
This greasy spoon transforms American favorites into vegan-friendly dishes. Located in the northern part of the U. District, Wayward Vegan Cafe accepts people of all dietary backgrounds — and encourages them to sit next to each other when times get busy. Seriously, get cozy. This vegan greasy spoon is especially crowded on the weekends, when hungry visitors crave generous portions for breakfast and lunch. (more…)
Meatless Mondays: In The Bowl
Capitol Hill’s vegetarian noodle bistro offers a variety of vegan-friendly dishes. As an “opportunistic vegan,” I always look for new vegan spots to hit up in Seattle. Our town has long been known for its underground slew of conscious eaters. As a result, a number of Seatown eateries offer vegan options – or, in some cases, full menus. Non-vegans don’t have to worry, though — vegans know how to dance with this thing called flavor. (more…)
