Plant-Based Goodness: Getting Slutty Vegan on a Cold Day in Harlem

So….let’s catch up. How did you spend your President’s Day this year? I opted for a little excitement this year, and I wasn’t alone. True Story. Here’s my confessional:

I got a little Slutty on our National Holiday when I heard that Slutty Vegan came to Harlem NYC.

Slutty Vegan, an Atlanta based fast food company specializing in fast, and yummy plant-based foods, held their first pop-up in New York City ever. Their menu places a shining spotlight 100% Vegan versions of the All-American fast-food favorite, the hamburger. It’s irresistible, insatiable, forever side-piece, french fries. I went with an open mind to try something new and exciting and to have a little fun. And I didn’t leave until I had a One Night Stand. No pork, just vegan bacon.

The outstanding pop-up event, held at the Cove Lounge in heart of Harlem, was a kickoff to the larger Slutty Vegan Tour. It will stop at a number of major cities along the East Coast in celebration of the Grand Opening of their new brick and mortar location in Atlanta – 1542 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd.

Back in New York, with lines wrapping around the block for hours. Over 900 people were served a taste of these delicious and satisfying burgers. We came to get the stuff that’s so good we waited in the cold for it!

3 FAST & SLUTTY OPTIONS CAME NEW YORK:

If you’ve never had an Impossible Burger – you don’t know what you’re missing! If you are steering your diet to be more plant-based right now, start here! The Impossible Burger Patty is made of a proprietary mixture of wheat, potato proteins, coconut oil, and heme. It tastes so much like meat, that you will open your burger, thoroughly examine how beautiful the patty is, whisper sweet devotion while you put it back in the bun and ravish the whole thing.

Founded in 2018 by Pinky Cole in Atlanta Georgia’s West End community, the Slutty Vegan Dream Team started with the purchase of a restaurant-grade food truck. The goal was to provide fresh, top quality prepared vegan comfort foods to an area underserved by flavorful vegan eats. A reminder and benchmark to everyone across the country that plant-based eating can be absolutely delicious and affordable.

The Slutty Vegan tour went on to Baltimore, DC, and Maryland, Greater Georgia, New Orleans, Houston, and will end in Los Angeles at the end of March 2019.

 

Meatless Monday: Delicious Vegetarian Meal Options for Fall

When most people think of fall comfort food, they tend to think of hearty meat soups and stews, cuts of steak or chicken bathing in gravy, and so on. But there’s nothing that says vegetarian meals can’t be hearty or fall under the comfort food category.  Today, for meatless Monday we sharing two vegetarian meal options from CedarLane Natural Foods and Pereg Natural Foods to show you just how delicious and hearty vegetarian foods can be during the cooler season.

CEDARLANE NATURAL FOODS

As the weather gets colder, we sometimes tend to hibernate in the warmth of our homes and binge of meat-filled meals. Why not warm up with a full meal that contains less than 400 calories and is made from natural ingredients.  This way you can feel good about what you’re eating without missing out on enjoying a delicious meal. CedarLane Natural Foods offers ten delicious vegetarian entrees, five of which are gluten-free, that are perfect for the colder fall and winter seasons. With amazing meal options like Eggplant Parmesan, Three Layer Enchilada Pie, Burrito Grande with Salsa Roja, Burrito Grande with Chili Verde Sauce, and Roasted Chile Relleno, there are enough delicious varieties to keep you satisfied every night of the week for lunch and dinner. Each entree is ready in about 5 minutes, the amount of time it takes us to decide what to eat. We got the chance to try a few of the meals and as meat eaters, we were blown away. There were so many favorites but we admit when it came to the Quinoa and Vegetable Enchiladas, we were in foodie heaven. Gone are the days of bland tasting vegan food options, get ready for an abundance of taste and flavor with every bite.

PEREG NATURAL FOODS COUSCOUS

We continue our meatless Monday post with something a little bit lighter. Pereg Natural Foods introduced four new couscous flavors to their lineup. Couscous with Mushrooms (not pictured), Couscous Pearl Pasta Pumpkin Seeds, Couscous with Cranberries, and Couscous Pearl Pasta with Vegetables, join the range of already popular Pereg Food couscous offerings. Did you know Couscous is amongst the healthiest of the grain based products in the world? Mixed with Pereg spices and herbs, these light and fluffy vegetarian meals create an amazing combination of texture and flavor. We love these flavors because they can be enjoyed as a healthy snack, a side dish or a full meal. The couscous mixes are easy to prepare, taking only 10-20 minutes for prep, depending on variety. The above flavors, and much more, are available now.

we hope you’ve enjoyed learning about these wonderful vegetarian food options, and hope your meatless Monday is a delicious one.
