Early vegans were faced with the challenge of lassoing an apple off a tree or coaxing a corncob into a bear trap. Hunt a healthy harvest the easy way with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of vegan and gluten-free fare at Karma in Northampton. Karma aims to promote natural, organic lifestyles, with a resulting menu that's stuffed to the fish-free gills with vegan, raw, and gluten-free fare. For lunch, the raw-butternut fettuccine transposes noodley properties onto an autumnal gourd ($9), and The Works veggie burger dresses up a standard grain-and-vegetable patty with cashew mayo ($8). Dinner options, such as raw lasagna layered with zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, basil, marinara, and macadamia ricotta ($15) or Indian dahl ($15), will fill diners with so much vitamin A that their eyes will glow in the dark. Karma also serves a bevy of beverages, including fair-trade tea ($2.95–$3.75), fresh juice ($4.50-$5.50), and customizable smoothies ($5.50–$6.50). Add in echinacea, ginger root, kelp, or chia seed for $1 more. Customers can enjoy free WiFi, as well as live music on weekends that will keep their toes tapping while they ruminate over the delightful lack of ruminant-based dishes.
