Recap from the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival – What a Show!

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.


Wrapido is a great option if you’re looking for a quick and healthy meal on the go.  Although the restaurant does deliver, there is also a small eat-in/ pick-up location near the Fashion District.  They have lots of vegan-friendly options including hummus, grilled veggies, fallafel, veggie wraps and fresh fruit.  They have free delivery too!
