2018 was certainly the year of the vegan. And with it, just about every meaty item you can think of received the vegan treatment. Some have faltered and some have thrived. Among the thriving is the Atlanta-based food truck, Slutty Vegan. Launched by Clark Atlanta University alum Pinky Cole, Slutty Vegan serves up a rotating assortment of sluttily-named, vegan burgers on a nearly daily basis. If you missed out on having the opportunity to be “sluttified” in 2018, here’s a few reasons why Slutty Vegan should be on your foodie bucket list in 2018.
All Your Favs Approve - Slutty Vegan has truly garnered praise from a who's who of entertainers, social media stars, and even a political heavyweight. On their highly-popular Instagram page, Slutty Vegan usually reposts videos of various celebs taking their first bite into one of their salacious burgers. And among those who have given their swift approval are Porsha Williams, Iyanla Vanzant, and Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
It’s A Welcome Introduction To Vegan Food – If we can be real for a second, not all vegan food can be as appetizing as Slutty Vegan’s Ménage à Trois (a plant-based patty with vegan bacon and shrimp). For those who may be leery of dipping their toes into the sea of vegan fare, the burgers at Slutty Vegan are a less intimidating way of doing just that.
You’ll Help Support A Local Business – Going local was another big (and welcome) trend in 2018. Who needs big chain burger restaurants who sell uncomfortably-questionable vegan burgers when you can support a local business? And with a brick-and-mortar location in Atlanta set to open in early 2019, it’ll be even easier to show your support for Slutty Vegan.
Take Your Guilt Elsewhere – In addition to giving your body a brief break from meat with a burger from Slutty Vegan, you’re also doing the planet a much-needed favor. A 2017 report from CNN.com, states that “Emissions from the production of beef and lamb are 250 times higher than those from legumes.” So, a Fussy Hussy from Slutty Vegan is as guilt-free as it is delicious.
