The NYC Vegan Scene

I am now in my second year living in New York City and I have never experienced such an incredible vegan scene. Not only have I become friends with fellow vegans but I can't walk down the street without running into a juice bar or a vegan restaurant. You can lose weight or gain weight when you move here, depending on where you came from. I have tasted some amazing smoothies, cheesy vegan sandwiches, raw desserts and fresh, amazing juices. Now, when I go home to visit my family in the burbs, I feel so limited because there are so few vegan places.

Check out my Instagram and facebook pages for a look at what and where I'm eating in this glorious city. I also updated my post on where to eat vegan in NYC. I've included restaurants I've tried and which neighborhood they are located in. Click here to check out the list.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
