Hi everyone! How are you doing today? 😉
I first decided to do a post covering the whole week, but that seriously isn’t my style of blogging. So, I’ll make a quick recap on what I did throughout the week.
Last Sunday, Michael, Jenny, and I all went to Sakura Con, which is an Anime Convention. (Simply put, people dressed up as characters from animes and games are there) Bought expensive yet cute stuff like Baby Mario and Toad Keychain.
On Wednesday, Michael and I had a heated discussion (which lasted about 2-3 hours) about life. (It was so intense that I had to postpone dinner. Now THAT’s insane!)
And this Sunday, Michael, Jenny, and I went to…
Vegfest!!! It is one of the biggest vegetarian festival in the US, and I have to say, it was AMAZING!!!!
So many people showed up; from little kids to adults.
We volunteered for 4 hours. Therefore, admission was free. 🙂
Very crowded, I know. It was INSANE!!!
I took WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more pictures than how much Jenny sent me, but because they’re not here, I’ll put up the ones that I have.
We (as in Michael and I) volunteered at this station:
Field Roast. All their products are made with Textured Wheat Gluten. (Therefore, it’s not gluten-free, but it’s soy-free, so if you’re allergic to soy, this is the one for you!)
We made Vegan Tacos (no pic!) 😦 with their new product, which is the Meatloaf.
“All you do is crumble them up, add spices, and that’s it! Very easy to make!” (I literally said this 100 times. Fhew!)
Have you tried anything from Field Roast?
After an intense, over-the-volunteer-hour hour, the lady at our booth brought us some vegan pizza from the booth next door.
It was yummy! I haven’t had pizza ever since I went vegan (about 6 months or so), so I was really thrilled to try it!
So after lunch, we went for a tour. (after all, it’s free admission! Why NOT go walk around?)
There were amazing products where you just had to scream and “ooh-ahh” for.
From Peter Rabbit Organics. There were two types: Mango, Banana & Orange and Apple and Grape.
I chose Mango, Banana & Orange.
The banana was really strong, so I personally didn’t like it, but if you love banana + mango, you might love it! 😉
We stopped by Jenny’s station to snatch taste some of her chip ‘n’ dips.
It was nice ‘n’ spicy. It was burning my mouth! :surprised:
Moving on, we passed by Honest Tea.
They had lots of varieties.
And I found something I’ve been looking for FOR EVER in my area:
I FINALLY found them, and I was SO excited! Everyone in the blogsphere seems to like it, and I wanted to always try it! 😉
I’ve seen these at Whole Food before. They were very…energizing! 😀
We came by Organic Soy Delicious.
We got Cookie Dough soy cream.
It was really, really good! (we went back for it 2 times after our first. It was that good!) It tastes just like ice cream, but better! 😀 If you like Cookie Dough, you have to try it!
Rolling back time, before we started volunteering, they gave us half a doughnut from Mighty-O.
It is a local doughnut shop, and they use organic ingridients, and it’s all vegan! 😀
My personal favorite is Chocolate Raspberry.
I tried many other ones, like Double Chocolate, Lemon, and Nuts, but my fave has to be Raspberry.
We spotted another ice cream sample.
Michael got Vanilla and I got Mint.
It had a nice, cool flavor to it, and it wasn’t strong like ordinary mint flavored ice cream. I liked it. 🙂
We got home, and these were our findings.
Food Samples I got:
Other fun stuff I grabbed:
This cute Larabar card (that Jenny gave me. Thank you!) had this cute & gigantic sticker.
I’m going to figure out where I’m going to put this sticker! 😉
Cute and shmexy pins from my station.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha! These cuties gave me a good laugh. 🙂
Fhew! That was the most time consuming post ever! Lots of pics = lots of time. Okay, make sense. Is there any vegetarian events in your area?
Well everyone, thaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks for coming! 🙂
P.S: Averie is having a Jewelry Giveaway!
