The struggle is real, many of us want to try to incorporate plant-based or vegan options into our diet, but we don't feel like we have the time, money or inspiration to do so on our own. Grab a FREE drink at the store bar and taste Fiesta Wrap™ (plant-based burrito) samples. Chef LaForce Baker from Moon Meals™ will teach you about the benefits of veganism, common misconceptions and how you can slowly incorporate plant-based items into your life, like the best selling Fiesta Wrap™ at Jewel-Osco. Flavorful, inexpensive and fast, these meals would fit right in at a fancy restaurant but still tastes just as good when enjoyed in sweats on the couch.
