A real lifesaver for vegetarians and vegans at MSU
Posted on 08 / 26 / 2007
I was a graduate student at Michigan State University for two years, and as a vegan, there were little to no on-campus dining options, save for the ubiquitous salad bar.
Enter Foods for Living. I staked out this gem my first week in East Lansing last year. A sort of scaled-down Whole Foods Market, Foods for Living offers organic, vegetarian, vegan and raw vegan foods, including boxed mixes, baking supplies, organic produce, soy, rice, and nut milks, a refrigerated section with vegan cheeze and cream cheeze, international foods, frozen dinners, and household products. Vegetarian and vegan products from local restaurants are also featured. There is an expansive bulk aisle with an assortment of trail mixes, dried fruits, nuts and nut butters, and vegan treats. Occasionally, local live music is provided, making the shopping experience more pleasant than usual.
Although a little on the pricy side, but well worth it for the selection and quality, Foods for Living has been a literal lifesaver in the two years I've spent at MSU.
Helpful staff, Special orders, Good selection
