From meatless meatballs to crispy tenders, Gardein blesses vegans with some of the tastiest meatless meats around. Their products have become a staple in my house, especially when I want to make my version of vegan Puerto Rican Pastelillos!
After a long search, I finally have a new job! With this new opportunity comes the challenge of figuring out a strategic way to get the right fuel I need every day. With a new schedule and always being on the move, I need easy, healthy food to nourish my body. That’s why I’m so excited to try Daily Harvest, a weekly or monthly plan that incorporates healthy and organic fruits and vegetables.
On May 1, 2019, Next Stop Vegan, The Bronx’s first vegan meal-prep company, announced their plans to open their doors to the public with a soft opening happening on Saturday, May 11, 2019. From three PM to nine PM, you can visit their humble home located on 1818 Archer Street in the Parkchester area of the Bronx.
The joy of eating a plant-based diet in the Bronx is finding vegan dishes in the family restaurants scattered throughout the borough. In my veganism, I aim to intertwine consciousness and mindfulness into what I consume when I can. It’s a blessing when I can go to an establishment and know my money is going towards people who care about the issues affecting the community and actively advocates for them. La Morada is one of those restaurants.
Through all my memories of existing in a Puerto Rican household, there was one constant that was never questioned. It was always there in our pantries, in our foods, in every supermarket we’d set foot in. It was the secret to delicious meals that I desperately try to replicate today. The bright orange packaging of sazon and the yellow and blue bottle of adobo are as prevalent and loved in my life as for others, but how did this happen, what are we actually eating, and why?
