Vegan in New York City

Groovy Green Livin Vegan cupcakes

It’s Wednesday and all over the internet you will find photos with no words of explanation. Why? Because pictures say a thousand words and today is Wordless Wednesday.

I really don’t consider myself a vegan. I’m more of a flextarian (I have a wacky diet that doesn’t fit under one category).  While in New York City this past weekend for BlogHer it was great having so many vegan options at my fingertips.  New York City is a mecca for vegan food. Veganism (vegan pronounced VEE-gun) is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients.

I had a carrot, beet and pineapple juice from this food cart.

I didn’t actually test out this little vegan spot, but it looked great.

  1. The juice sounds delicious. I want one of those vanilla cupcakes from the top photo!

    I found an organic bakery in my area that I would like to try. It says they offer vegan options.

  2. My all time favorite vegan restaurant is Spiral Diner in DFW. Texas. I miss it so, probably more the Chipotle. Shocking, I know! 🙂

  3. Glad you enjoyed some of the awesome food options NYC offers!

  4. That is one thing I love about NYC, all of the healthy, fresh food at your finger tips. I love juicing and there are fresh juice bars abound! Thanks for a fun weekend!

  5. I agree Lindsay. The food choices in NYC are unbelievable. So glad we were able to spend some time together.

  6. Thanks Charise. I needed a few more weeks in the City to really enjoy the food!

  7. That is shocking Stephanie! Does Chipotle know that you’re cheating on them?

  8. I want one of the vanilla cupcakes too Marsha. You are lucky to have an organic bakery close by. You’ll have to let me know how it is.

  9. I have to say, I saw several vegan spots to eat and it really jumped out at me since I didn’t really expect it. I didn’t eat at any, but OMG, those cupcakes look delicious!

  10. Don’t they Cathy!!?? That’s something I love about NYC-there are so many choices for amazing food! Great to see you, as always.
