The 6th Annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival

1284

Did you get a chance to attend the 2016 New York City Vegetarian Food Festival this past weekend? We did and it sure was an experience!

There was something for pretty much everyone from adults to even a baby to young children play area with kid-friendly and healthy snacks and toys. Of course, my favorite part are trying out all the different samples of vegan and vegetarian products that different brands were promoting. A lot of the samples were products that were up and coming and most would be found in Whole Foods shortly, coupons were handed out to entice purchase (I took full advantage and have a small stack waiting to be used). I signed up for more information for yoga classes and hope to attend one soon.

I also got to seat on a panel hosted by the Institute of Culinary Education where James Distefano made me dream of a better future where I could cook that well.

We cannot wait to see what they will have next year! But for now, I am heading to Whole Foods to use these coupons.
