LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- VeganSmart, the premier choice for all-in-one nutritional vegan shakes, vegan recipes and an interval cleanse program presented a public vegan brunch Sunday, July 12th in downtown Los Angeles. The event was hosted by Bad Ass Vegan (fitness trainer and health influencer John Lewis) and @VeganFoodShare, a vegan lifestyle awareness group. This was the second successful brunch event presented by VeganSmart. Through these events, VeganSmart intends to educate the community about all the health benefits that could come from adjusting to a vegan lifestyle while having a good time.
Over 300 local vegans, non vegans, celebrities and influencers attended the LA event. VeganSmart previously held a vegan brunch in Miami and the success of that event inspired the company to take their vegan appreciation party on the road to inspire communities nationwide including Los Angeles and a pending brunch in New York City. The Los Angeles brunch pulled out all the stops by hosting the event in a funky, downtown warehouse. Street art covered the walls and the smell of delicious vegan sliders and quesadillas filled the air, while a DJ pumped out tunes. Guests were also treated to vegan cheesecake, lychee, vegan ice cream and fruit kabobs. No brunch is complete without cocktails, and VeganSmart was sure to deliver with tasty vegan Bloody Mary's and mimosas.
The VeganSmart brunch series is a celebration of veganism for seasoned vegans, an introduction to the vegan lifestyle for non-vegans and an opportunity for those who are vegan-curious to experiment with veganism. The brunch events are an entertaining approach to encourage others to consider adopting a vegan diet. These networking events combine delicious VeganSmart smoothie recipes with live music, local artist exhibitions, and vegan catering to show that the vegan lifestyle can be easy and above all else, fun!
