True Food Kitchen Spring Menu 2018 Preview Easter Brunch

Prior to True Food Kitchen opening its doors in Boca Raton earlier this year, I had the amazing opportunity to experience its Winter Menu.  Since then I have been back to TFK quite a few times because, really, it's just that good! 😍 Seriously, the charred cauliflower and squash pie are still my faves!  I also knew that pretty soon they would be transitioning to a Spring Menu, and if you are a menu troll like me, you know I was excite to find out what vegan goodies would be on it!

OK so if you and I are social media friends, you know I love food...specifically vegan food!  I am always keeping my eyes and ears open for restaurants that don't make it an impossibility to have a satisfying vegan meal. Well, did you know that kosher restaurants are a perfect spot for vegans to find some great food!

Chef Alex Reznik, an alum of Top Chef DC, has brought his culinary talent to Boca Raton.  Ditmas Kitchen & Cocktail, named after the street where Chef Reznik grew up in Brooklyn, is completely kosher.  The menu is pork free, shellfish free, and dairy free.  These "restrictions" make it so easy for vegans to find menu items that cater to their lifestyle!  Keep reading to check out my very first, and definitely not last, meal over at Ditmas in Boca πŸ’š

True Food Kitchen Now in Boca Raton

Disclosure: Services were provided to me for editorial consideration by True Food Kitchen. All opinions are 100% my own.

One of my favorite things to do since going completely vegan has to be discovering new hidden foodie gems that don't make me feel can I put this?  A 2nd class citizen?  Too harsh?  Not really...A lot of times, I find myself scrutinizing the menu at restaurants because items are not labeled appropriately and the reality is, there aren't many options that cater to a vegan diet πŸ˜“

That is why when I find a spot that takes the time to develop delicious vegan options, labels their food, and actually revels in the health benefits of a plant-based diet, I am all in!  True Food Kitchen has made it's way to South Florida.  Having opened its doors to the public on February 21st, this restaurant covets quite a bit of claims regarding its menu options, health benefits and ingredients.  Keep reading to learn all about my experience at TFK and what they have brought to Boca Raton 🌿😍

Our Experience at Cirque Italia - An Animal Free Acrobatic Extravaganza

 I received free admission and compensation in exchange for my unbiased review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

I grew up going to the circus, the traditional one, with lions, tigers, and bears..OH MY!  It wasn't something we even considered an issue.  I blame it on sheer ignorance.  I'm sure my mom didn't really think about the well being of the animals being used in the circus acts.  After all, they looked like they were being taken care of well enough.  The realization of animal cruelty in the entertainment industry really came into perspective for me as a teenager.  Since then, I have really  transitioned to a lifestyle that does not support exploitation of animals.

Enter Cirque Italia! πŸŽͺ When I was given the opportunity to attend an animal free circus in my very own part of town I just couldn't pass it up.  As a family, we made a night of it, and headed to this magical spectacular.  Keep reading to hear all about the antics and impressive acrobatics we had the pleasure of experiencing at Cirque Italia in North Miami!!! πŸ’œ
