Homemade mac & cheese, store-made mac & cheese, boxed mac & cheese, restaurant-made, you name it, I’ve had it. Does anyone else just love mac n’ cheese as much as me? It’s like comfort in a bowl. It’s the last thing I gave up before switching to veganism. Luckily, being vegan means you can still eat mac n’ cheese.
Now that I’ve been living in NYC for a few years, I’ve eaten my way through enough pizza slices to find that the popular tip is true — New York City has the BEST pizza in the United States. Some people say it has to do with the mineral content of the water. Whatever the reason, you have to get a slice or two of pizza here and see for yourself!
It’s disappointing when a vegan/vegetarian restaurant you like goes out of business! I’m sad to say farewell to Maimonide of Brooklyn (M.O.B.), a delicious place in Boreum Hill that was known for serving “vegan food for carnivores.”
Fabulous Things I Love This Week
New fall TV shows, new vegetarian restaurant near my apartment, first time trying a carrot-mushroom-chickpea hot dog — sometimes, it’s the little things that make the week!
If you’re trying to eat better by cutting back on meat, dairy, GMOs, etc, take a grocery trip to your nearest Whole Foods Market. It’s a great grocery store when you want to switch out your favorite snack foods for more Earth-friendly, animal-friendly, people-friendly and health-friendly options. Whether you want organic fruit and veggies or a new packaged food product you’ve read about, Whole Foods is bound to have it.
A couple years ago when I moved to NYC, I was surprised to find many vegan options at Costco in Brooklyn. There are even several organic and/or non-GMO products, as well.
Here are just some of the vegan items I noticed at the Costco location in Brooklyn, NY. I picked up most of these, and the kitchen is now well-stocked for vegan eating!
Spending a month in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio for Thanksgiving and Christmas was awesome! While I was there, I got to see some friends and family. Catching up with them meant I had lots of lunch and brunch dates at Park + Vine and Melt Eclectic Cafe – two of my favorite places in Cincy for vegan eats. I also had some tasty vegan dessert. Now, I’m back in NYC, a city with so many vegan restaurants and offerings. It’s one of the best cities in the world! Here is some of the vegan food I’ve had in Brooklyn and Manhattan the past few weeks.
