The Vegan Taste, 6835 N. 58th Drive, Glendale, a fully plant-based meal delivery service, has welcomed nutritionist PK Newby to its team.
Founded in 2006 by vegan chef Jason Wyrick, The Vegan Taste delivers healthy, expertly crafted artisan meals to subscribers’ doorsteps. Providing consulting for his menus, Mr. Wyrick and Ms. Newby work in conjunction to ensure each meal from The Vegan Taste utilizes the right balance of ingredients for optimal nutrition.
“Creating flavorful, good-for-you meals has always been our focus at The Vegan Taste,” stated Mr. Wyrick. “However, with the increased emphasis on maintaining excellent health and immune support, we wanted to add another layer of reassurance for our subscribers. Now, with PK’s help, our meals feature the most immunity boosting ingredients possible.”
With more than 25 years of experience researching diet-related diseases, Ms. Newby has been studying how people make food choices, their impact on the environment and teaching why what we eat matters. Known as “The Nutrition Doctor,” she is also an adjunct Harvard professor. She has published multiple books, including her latest, “Food and Nutrition: What Everyone Needs to Know.”
No stranger to the benefits of proper eating, Mr. Wyrick lost more than one hundred pounds and completely reversed his diabetes after switching to a vegan diet. This led to him co-authoring the New York Times Bestseller, “21 Day Weightless Kickstart.” He was the first vegan chef to teach in the Le Cordon Bleu program at the Scottsdale Culinary Institute and currently owns Casa Terra, an elevated vegan restaurant in Glendale.
The Vegan Taste menu changes weekly, and gluten free, oil free, and soy free options are also available upon request. A sample menu features Enchiladas Suizas with creamy salsa verde, CT cheese, beans, and market veggies; Thai Peanut Noodles with carrots, cabbage, green onions, and tofu; Barbacoa Tacos with smoked mushrooms, black beans, queso fresco, and pineapple pico; Tikka Masala with carrots, cauliflower, red peppers, and tofu; Turkish Lentil Soup with potatoes, tahini sauce, sumac, and fresh herbs; and Meatball Grinders with zucchini and ground sausage in a fire roasted tomato sauce.
The Vegan Taste is doubling the length of its new customer introductory offer. New subscribers will now receive 20% off their orders for eight weeks. A 6-meal package is available for $65.46 or a 12-meal package is available for $109.10. The price includes tax and complimentary delivery Valley-wide. Also, in order to provide nutritious meals to first responders and healthcare workers, The Vegan Taste has an option where subscribers can donate a care pack. These meals are being sold at The Vegan Taste’s cost, so no profits are being made.
