On December 2nd, Barbara and Doug from Plant Slant Journey attended the 2nd annual VegFest South Florida in Fort Lauderdale. There were thousands in attendance. It was a great event with many booths offering food and drink samples, vegan gifts and lots of information under one roof. It was amazing to see that many of the foods and drinks that were being sampled are available at your local grocery store.
Outside is where all of the wonderful smells from the many food vendors filled the air. Personally, we have never been in a place where we wanted to eat everything offered. What a feeling! Hamburgs, Hot Dogs, Wings, Burritos, Bowls, Kombucha, Vegan Wine, and desserts galore. We believe that anyone and everyone would have no problem finding something they liked whether they were vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, plant-slant, thinking of becoming plant-based or having no intentions of ditching meat, dairy etc. There was truly something for everyone. It was a thing of beauty to just see all of the endless possibilities of healthy food.

Again, we would urge anyone and everyone to attend, if nothing else, but to see that vegans and vegetarians are not eating salads everyday. Believe us, we are not missing out on anything.
We hope we have inspired you to at least attend a VegFest event or something similar in your area. You really have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Enjoy the Journey!
