    • Hi Mike,

      Thank you for tuning in! Lol, yes, they kept and ate all the cheesecake. 🙂
      I will be posting a recipe very soon so that you can make your own at home. Technically, I’m not vegan either because I do use ethically sourced honey in certain products. Nothing wrong with vegetarian. You have to do what works for you. We’re all in different stages of our journey. Thank you so much for tuning in and for your support!

  9. Hi Chelsea!

    I hope this finds you well! I wanted to introduce myself – my name is Falon Sweeney and I am the Community Marketing Manager for sweetgreen in the DMV. If you haven’t heard of sweetgreen, we are a seasonal, scratch kitchen serving salads and warm bowls. Our goal is to bring communities together around real food. I love reading your blog, and I wonder if you would like to grab sweetgreen or coffee sometime soon to discuss how we can collaborate! I look forward to hearing from you.


  10. Hi,
    I saw you on TVOne with your Thanksgiving alternative recipes. They sound really tasty and you are a gorgeous sister, so of course I am intrigued.. I’m a native Washingtonian, amatuer marathoner, triathlete and lacto-ovo vegetarian for nearly a decade. Are you aware of any active African American men who have adopted the vegan lifestyle and share information, diet and workout challenges…that along with following you, I may use as a source of information and motivation?
    Peace and love and continued success to you,
