Fast food is not the healthiest option on the planet, but hey, sometimes you’re on the road (like during this holiday season!) and the only thing in sight is an exit with a measly gas station and a few good ole’ American drive-thurs. Luckily, vegans can find a few things.
Happy birthday to you

Enjoy all this free food
It’s all vegan, too!
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.

Sometimes, we just want to come home from work, pop a frozen dinner in the oven and relax. And that’s OK! But, if we’re going to do that, we might as well try to make the meal as healthy and nutritious as possible. That’s where veggies can come in handy, whether they’re fresh or frozen.
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 live in NYC now, but Cincinnati is my hometown and one of my favorite cities in America. Each time I visit, I go to Melt Eclectic Cafe for lunch or Sunday brunch. It’s a favorite among locals and is located in a cool part of town called Northside. Though it’s very vegan and vegetarian friendly, the cafe also serves meat and dairy cheese, so its versatility makes Melt a wonderful spot to go to with my friends and family who aren’t veggie like me. We can all eat in harmony!
Unfortunately, the end of February was the last week that New York City could spot The Cinnamon Snail truck on the road during regular business hours. It’s one of my favorite food trucks, and most of NYC also agrees this food is amazing. In 2014, The Cinnamon Snail was crowned Best Food Truck in NYC by winning the 10th annual Vendy Cup, thanks to their specialty sandwiches and doughnuts. At one point, I was having their lunch at least once a week in midtown Manhattan, and I always saw a line of hungry New Yorkers! Clearly, there was a huge demand for this vegan food, so it’s sad the truck is going off the roads.
