Vegan Whopper and NYC Vegetarian Food Festival 2019
This April weather is really for the birds. One day it's gorgeous and then the next, it's dark, gray, misty. Oh well, hopefully, after all these April showers, we will have an abundance of blooming flowers in May!
Today, my dad has an important doctor appointment, during which we will find out the next step for his treatment. I'm feeling very hopeful about his recovery. He has his appetite back, eating well, and has returned more to his old self!
A New Vegan Whopper at Burger King
What exciting news for the millions of plant-based eaters here in the U.S.!
Earlier this month - April Fool's Day to be exact - Burger King launched a test of its Vegan Impossible Burger in 59 of its restaurants in and around the St. Louis, Missouri area, according to Business Insider Magazine.
The tests went "exceedingly well" and the "have it your way" Burger Giant has plans to roll out the test in other markets nationwide throughout 2019.
Super encouraging news and I couldn't wait to share it with you
As you well know by now, me and my girls will NOT be joining Tanya and gang to Sicily. What really upsets me is that I had this trip on my calendar for well over 18 months, and then convinced Tanya to join us. Now, she will be going on a trip that was not on her radar for this summer until I discussed it with her and now we will have to go another time. Saddens me.
HOWEVER, we will be doing some fun "close to home" adventures this summer, for which I will be working on over the course of the next few weeks!! So, Stay Tuned.
One small, local event that I've added to my calendar is The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival 2019.
Celebrating its 9th year, this food festival will take place for two days - May 18 and 19 at the Metropolitan Pavilion located at 125 West 18th Street in Manhattan.
The event will feature guest speakers discussing relevant social, political and practical issues concerning plant-based living, as well as food demo's and more than 70 vendors!
Just ordered my tickets through Goldstar (see link on HOME page for discount tickets to this event!) and we'll be going on Sunday May 19th - so excited!!
Wishing you a wonderful day!
Tanya will be checking in soon! - Travelin' Elisa
