Happy Spring.
Had quite the work trip to SoCal since I last wrote you all. That trip focused on working with 4Some Health‘s protein superfood smoothies at the super huge industry show, Natural Products Expo West. And then being the lead eating judge for Vegan Street Fair L.A. Wasn’t much into driving all over so my notable eating out meals were very very few – Crossroads, Veggie Grill, and Vegetable.
Thanks to 4Some Health along with JustTheFood.com I’ve put together a fun contest for some great Expo West samples and free products coupons worth $100 here. Read about some of the many great vegan finds of Expo West, courtesy of members Carlo & Carmella aka The Food Duo.

My absolute favorite Vegan Street Fair L.A. item of the 63 we tasted was Todo Verde‘s Naranjada agua fresca – orange blossom water, orange juice, maple syrup & chia seeds. The color in person is quite quite something.

Back home here in NYC, byCHLOE has announced two more openings since last time – a bakery next to the original location on Bleecker, and a 5th shop opening in Boston this summer. WOWZA! Meanwhile, I’m super eager for the Flatiron to open and resume working through the entire menu :)Thanks to super scout Russell for noting Acai Berry,  the all new vegan sushi and smoothie spot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn close to Champs Jr.

Product APB: I’m looking for Hodo Soy‘s yuba to cook with, and recommending you do the same 😉

Continued thanks to all that share NYC vegan scene intel, responses to product APBs, and all the rest for these missives :)

Cheers to these first three months of 2016! Hope they’ve been GOOD for you 🙂

This Week in Vegan Crowdfunding 3/18/16

Derived RoundUP SoCal 3/17/16 – Vegan Street Fair, Expo West contest & byCHLOE Silverlake

Delicious grilled cheese, with tomato & basil soup at Vegetable (Studio City, CA)

Hi.

After a huge Expo West (77,000 people), this weekend’s 2nd annual Vegan Street Fair Los Angeles should be a piece of cake. And cornbread. And pie. And a kabob. And an iced tea. And plenty else (laughter). Quite excited to join Vegan Fat Kid, Spork Foods, Jason Wrobel, Kelly Bone and Stacy Michelson to find the best savory and sweet taste of the event 🙂 Say hi if you see us strolling around!

I was lucky enough to work at Booth #3792 with 4Some Health. A good few pics from that are here. You can enter a post Expo contest here to try and win some goodies from the show 🙂

Did find a bit of time, mostly Thursday, to see (and taste) a bit of Expo West. See some of the packaging and booths that delighted me here. My favorite taste was actually the new burger from Upton’s Naturals. It wasn’t trying to hard and simply focused on being good n’ TASTY. If I could’ve bought it on the spot, I would’ve!

Here are three reports from #vegan bloggers that attended Expo West: The Spooky VeganVegan, What? & World of Vegan

Was tickled right before Expo began to learn byCHLOE #4 is indeed going to be outside of NYC – right here in LA’s forthcoming Silverlake 365 Whole Foods store this summer.

Shout out to Vegetable‘s Jeff and Angie for MANY delicious plates at dinner earlier this week! Great to learn first hand what all the raves have been about 🙂

 

Continued thanks for your SoCal vegan scene intel shares! We couldn’t do this without you.

Please be well (fed).

Bicoastal RoundUP NYC 3/10/16 – more vegan pizza, Precious Metal and byCHLOE #4

IMG_0037

Daily event at Candle Cafe West

Hi there.

I had a rather fun time judging the recent vegan cooking competition Battle of the Brussels. Was taken aback at the variety of things people made – bruschetta, pizza, cake (!!), pasta, pickled ones, and buffalo bites.

OK so now I’m asking (yet not rushing anyone) to learn when do Modern Love BrooklynbyCHLOE Flatiron and any other new local spots open? Seeking dates for, or better yet invitations to, these spots’ opening 🙂 Partly because I’m eager to work my byCHLOE. Rewards app and chow through the rest of the great menu, and desserts case too.

Has anyone checked out Le Botaniste (UES)? If so, how is it?? Thanks.

A fun video, and strong encoURaGEment from me to get over (or back) to Philly. Vedgeand V-Street are making some of the best vegan eats in the world now. And I don’t say that lightly having eating at the new Millennium (Oakland) and various other spots n recent months.

Grateful for more vegan pizzas options these days, now including four at Blossom on Columbus!

Happy+stunned to learn we have another new bar locally that is vegan – Precious Metal is  from the Pine Box Rock Shop couple. PRO TIP: this new bar is mile plus walk from/to Toad Style or barely 8 minutes in a car. Bunna Cafe is barely half a mile away.

How hot is byCHLOE? They’ve just announced opening location #4 in Silver Lake (Los Angeles) this Summer!!! What a first year they’re having.

Continued thanks to you for sharing NYC vegan scene intel, responses to product APBs, and all the rest for these missives :)

OK please be well (fed)!

Erykah Badu, 1971- (American singer-songwriter, record producer, activist, and actress)

Erykah_Badu_in_Nation19_Magazine

Although she disputes the term, Erykah Badu has been dubbed “the first lady of neo soul” and “the queen of neo-soul”. Her first album, Baduizm, earned her commercial and critical success, helping to establish her as one of the emerging neo soul genre’s leading artists. Along with D’Angelo‘s Brown Sugar (1995) and Maxwell‘s Urban Hang Suite (1996), the album has been recognized by music writers for beginning neo soul’s popularity and helping the genre obtain commercial visibility at the time.

As an actress, she has played a wide range of supporting roles in movies including Blues Brothers 2000The Cider House Rules and House of D.

Badu has been a vegetarian for over 20 years, and had been a vegan for two years as of 2008.

In 1995, Badu became involved with rapper André 3000 of OutKast, with whom she had her first child, a son named Seven Sirius Benjamin, who was born on November 18, 1997.

Coasting RoundUP SoCal 3/2/16 – Pizza Bagels, Miyoko and Julieanna, and Expo West

IMG_9909

Delicious breakfast frittata at Gratitude, SoCal’s newest spot

Hi.

Went with a great group of people to Gratitude in Newport Beach. It’s quite wonderful. Hope you ALL will check it out. If you need some vegan ice cream/s afterwards, walk barely three minutes and check out KRISP.

Was also happy to check out Seabirds Kitchen, my favorite vegan spot in SoCal – so far. There are a good dozen or two newer spots I need to get to this year.

Hope you are appreciating the vegan pizza bagels the rest of the country is envious of. There is a party featuring them this Saturday night. Please consider attending.

Wednesday March 9 yours truly will join authors and dynamos Julieanna Hever and Miyoko Schinner at H.O.P.E. for a very special book signing. Hope to see/meet some of you there.

And then I’ll be at Expo West doing social media at Booth #3792 with 4some Health and their new protein superseed smoothies.  Please bop by and say hello 🙂

A week after that (and grazing around SoCal to new spots), I’ll be one of the eating judges at Vegan Street Fair L.A. So excited to be involved with this very special event. (And a bit nervous about tasting #alltheveganfood and crowds.)

Continued thanks for your SoCal vegan scene intel shares! We couldn’t do this without you.

Pleas be well (fed).
