FoodFlo – a vegan delivery service that slays!

 

Sooo I had the wonderful opportunity to try a subscription to FoodFlo – a vegan food delivery service that delivers to CA, NV, and AZ!

FoodFlo boasts delicious, whole food plant based recipes via French gourmet chef Florence Bertheau.

For more than 20 years, chef Flo cooked for her many students and celebrity clients the way she had learned in her native France, rich in butter and creamy sauces, heavy on meats, eggs and dairy. Then a paradigm shift happened. She began to see how certain foods had a profoundly positive effect on the health of her autistic daughter and on Flo herself. She created her own food pyramid based on three principles: Vegan, gluten-free and alkaline pH-balanced. Menus began evolving. Flo started using dense plant-based hypo-allergenic foods such as sprouted grains, nuts, vegetarian proteins, fresh greens and produce from local farms.

Flo’s journey of ‘health through food’ balances her company values of fresh and raw food nutrition with social and environmental consciousness; being aware of how what we eat affects the earth and all animals that live on it. Purchasing seasonal and local, she is able to provide the best quality products that are cost efficient, reduce the carbon footprint, all cooked with the intention for your good health.

I tried a week’s worth of menu items, and felt absolutely amazing afterwards. The meals were hearty but not heavy, and all of the ingredients were incredibly fresh. I especially enjoyed their handmade snack bars, pictured above!

They packed everything to perfection, as well – the meals came cold and fresh and ready to go. I was very impressed.

I highly recommend this service, especially if you don’t have time to meal prep during the week! You’ll have all the benefits of an organic, gluten-free vegan chef for a great price and a minimum of fuss.

Thanks for the trial, FoodFlo! You have a fan in me. 🙂

A little about me:

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I have always been a fan of fashion, good food, music, movies, fitness, and fun times.

Having dreamed of being a singer in Japan since I was a little girl, I went to UCLA to get my BA in English Literature, then trolled around in Downtown LA for a bit before selling my car to run away to Tokyo.

I got a rock band of Japanese/Chinese men together and collaborated with them to create the band ‘19 Mirrors’. Some of our performances are still on youtube, albeit accompanied by terrible sound quality. Whoops.

I was the lead singer of 19 Mirrors for almost 3 years; we played a ton of venues in Tokyo, and even booked a 10-day tour of Beijing, China. Then came the March 2011 tsunami/earthquake disaster. I stayed in Tokyo until November 2011, when I ultimately decided to make the move back to LA.

While still living in Tokyo, I was going through the process of becoming plant based. I kept happening across books and articles that described the inherent cruelty that comes with eating animal products, the complete lack of balance my body felt while consuming them, and found that I couldn’t reconcile my love of animals with eating them and wearing their skin.

Therefore, when I moved back to LA, I promptly became a whirlwind of plant based, cruelty free fervor, wanting to discover fashion, food, and cosmetics alike that aligned themselves with my newfound beliefs.

To my delight, anything I ever craved or wanted to wear was available in a plant based, cruelty free form! Joy! I was super happy to discover that I didn’t have to sacrifice style, appetite, or health to be plant based, balanced, healthy, and cruelty free. I now live in Las Vegas, and intend to blog full time about a compassionate, luxury, cruelty free lifestyle!
