Viva La Vegan in Rockville
In addition to all the great foods normally found in the market, the team at Dawson’s is setting up tasting stations throughout the store, with recipes that will show just how delicious a plant-based lifestyle can be. For instance, one can try coconut "bacon" and or a fabulous ceviche dish using cauliflower instead of shrimp. This is also a chance to try some new products like vegan cheeses, cookies and baked goods and meatless “meat” dishes, just to give a hint of the menu for the first event. The DC Veg Society will be present to offer information on their organization, provide recipes and offer tips on how, and why, to adopt a vegan lifestyle.
“There are many reasons to go with a plant-based diet. Not only is it good for your health, it's also good for the environment and sustainability,” notes Darline Thomas, marketing manager at Dawson’s Market. “Plant-based diets do not have to be boring. There are many products and recipes out there that are truly delicious. By offering this event, we will be able to demonstrate and sample products that customers might otherwise not try.”
