Today is my birthday and it’s also Veg Fest in my local community! How awesome is that?! Yep I can celebrate with vegan grub, spend time with the family and meet new people within our plant based community! I wasn’t expecting much because I didn’t think the plant based community was so large in my neck of the woods to be honest. I was pleasantly surprised however! Either our plant based community has grown tremendously or some people went because they are trying to learn more and maybe adopt a new healthier way of living. Either way I’m super happy to see such a great turn out!
People are trying to step out of their comfort zone and try new things. Many people are looking to adopt new healthy ways of eating and living. I say any changes that will better your health and wellness no matter how small are a wonderful thing. It’s all the small changes that we make which make a tremendous difference to our wellness rather quickly.
I picked up new Vegan t-shirts for the baby because he’s outgrown all his other ones. His Birthday is next week so that will be a part of his gift. I can’t wait to see him wearing them! The hubby also bought me a new tank top which I absolutely love as well!
So what did we eat while at Veg Fest? Burgers!!! Let’s be real here … Its all about the Vegan food! The vegan burgers were delicious and super filling too! My 11 year old had strawberry gelato which was out of this world. We also enjoyed samples of cookies and energy bites which was great.
This was our 1st Veg Fest of 2018 and it’s a great start! We have two large ones coming up this summer in downtown Toronto which I’m totally looking forward to! Last year we were away in Portugal for a large part of the summer so we missed them.
Let me know in the comments below if your local community does a Veg Fest as well and what you love the most about them.
I have to say this was a perfect birthday! I’m thankful for such an amazing family who made my day so enjoyable!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Thanks for taking the time to take a peek at my blog. Please connect with me across social media as well!
