If I click my heels three times, can I get to the Texas VegFest? Oh, to be in Austin this weekend. I wish. The Texas VegFest is definitely getting added to my bucket list.

While I was at the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival earlier this month, listening to Terry Hope Romero, I thought back to the D.C. VegFest in October and watching Isa Chandra Moskowitz. The two have done a handful of cookbooks together. I pondered, ‘Do they ever do appearances together?’

Well, searching for some festivals around Oklahoma for An Unrefined Vegan, whose blog is super and you should totally check it out, I came across the Texas VegFest. Low and behold, Isa and Terry will be at the festival together. Yippie!…Darn for me…but yippie.

Also speaking will be Erica Meier from Compassion Over Killing (it’s ok to heart her; she’s doing amazing work); the very fit Robert Cheeke; and the unexpectedly funny Dr. Michael Gregor (he painlessly spoon feeds you life changing information).

Since some Texas cities are topping the list of fattest US cities, this is a positive move. Organizing events like these are not easy, so give love to the organizers! Be sure to check out those behind this event.
