We are so excited that V Grits will be at the Grand Opening serving their delicious food!
V-Grits serves up southern-style vegan dishes out of a bright orange truck! Their goal is to provide people with healthier comfort food. They make all of their own sauces, dressings, cheeses, and more.
V-Grits is chef-owned by Kristina J. Addington, the first vegan chef to win Food Network's culinary competition, Cutthroat Kitchen.
Some of their menu items include:
V-GRITS - Roasted garlic and our made-from-scratch cheese make these grits the greatest. No gluten ingredients.
HOT BROWN MELT - V-Grits take on the classic KY Hot Brown. A grilled sandwich with our made-from-scratch turkey, cheese sauce, bacon, and balsamic grilled tomatoes.
About Chef Kristina
Why V-Grits? I grew up with a family from the hollers of Appalachia, whose gatherings always revolved around food. Southern, country-cooking at its’ best. My family expressed love through feeding each other home-cooked meals, and I believe a lot of people shared similar experiences. That's one reason "comfort food" is so comforting. It reminds us of sitting around the dinner table with our families.
I switched to a completely plant-based diet about 8 years ago, after beginning to understand exactly how much animals suffer in factory farms (did you know 10 billion animals are slaughtered in the US every year?). I chose to make a bold decision to no longer support the cruel farmed-animal food system. As I began to learn more about health and wellness, I was even more confident in my choice. Meat and dairy are major contributors to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes… the list goes on.
Come out to BAREfit on May 23 between 12-5 for our Grand Opening and try out their amazing food! Even if you're not vegan, you'll still enjoy it. Trust us...
