Halo Top ice cream has skyrocketed in popularity this year, but sadly, vegans and those with allergies could not partake since every flavor contained dairy. Now, Halo Top is answering vegan and lactose intolerant prayers everywhere by releasing seven new flavors that are totally vegan!
Music festival season is upon us! In NYC, we look forward to The Governors Ball, which takes place on Governor’s Island. The music lineup isn’t even the best part in my eyes (but hey, I’m a vegan foodie…). The real stars of the festival are the dozens of food trucks and vendors that carry plant-based and vegetarian options. There are even some all-vegan vendors!
March 9-13 marked the 2016 Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California. I wish I could have gone to this event, but because I wasn’t there in person, of course I’ve been following the expo news on social media. From what I’ve seen, it looks like this is yet another great year for vegan food.
I am obsessed with New York City’s favorite vegan food truck, The Cinnamon Snail, so I’m SUPER PUMPED about this news! The Cinnamon Snail has secured a location at The Pennsy, a new 8,000-square-foot food court opening at NYC’s Penn Station on Jan 7, 2016.
Do you all remember in December 2014 when White Castle announced it was adding a Veggie Slider to their menu? For vegetarians, the news was pretty cool, but vegans were unenthused because the bun still contained dairy. Now, it seems White Castle has listened to customer demand and is offering its first FULLY VEGAN Veggie Slider, woot woot!
Have you heard of Chloe Coscarelli? She’s a beloved vegan chef who rose to culinary stardom after winning Cupcake Wars a few years ago. Then, she came out with a few cookbook, like Chloe’s Vegan Italian Kitchen. Now, she’s in the restaurant business! About a month ago, she opened her new restaurant on Bleecker Street in NYC called by CHLOE. I’ve been there twice now and, yes, I’ll say I’m a cult follower. It seems I’m not the only one!
I love Trader Joe’s! For those who want to eat more plant-based foods, this store is a wonderful place to do your shopping. After one scan at the food lineup, you’ll quickly find that Trader Joe’s has your back when it comes to offering tasty meals and snacks that are free of meat, eggs, and dairy.
Annie’s Homegrown now offers Organic Vegan Shells & Creamy Sauce, as well as Organic Gluten Free Vegan Elbows & Creamy Sauce! They are similar to other boxed mac n’ cheese products that sit on the shelf, and they’re perfect for young people, college students, busy families, and anyone who wants an easy-to-make meal.
People are lining up outside of a tiny restaurant in New York City to get a taste of what chef David Chang is calling “the best veggie burger I’ve ever had.”
Once you step into Trader Joe’s, you’ll definitely plan to come back again. Everything seems so cheap, and it’s easy to fill up a cart quickly because you’ll feel like you want (no, NEED) everything you see. I’ve been buying vegetarian and vegan food from Trader Joe’s locations all across the country for years now, and I’m a huge fan of the store.
