It was wild, it was crazy, it was the 2nd annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival! With new products galore, the event was another smash hit. There were lots of great foods to sample and explore! The speakers were diverse and inspiring. Among them were Ellen Jaffe Jones, author of Eat Vegan on $4 a Day, and Brendan Brazier author of Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimum Performance in Sports and Life.

The first EVER vegetarian food festival that took place in Chelsea on Sunday, April 4th was a PHENOMENAL event! It was an amazing arena of super yummy vegan products like: Teese vegan mozzarella cheese, Sweet & Sara marshmallows, raw vegan ice cream, Gnosis raw vegan chocolate and soooo much more! The event’s keynote speaker was Dr. Neal Barnard, President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). Dr. Barnard discussed the positive effects that a plant-based diet can have on cholesterol, type II diabetes and joint pain. He introduced the 21-day Vegan kickstart, a program designed to help beginners explore a plant-based diet.
