#HappyNewYear edition of #LunchBreakLIVE at a brand new 100% vegan pizza parlor in the Palms section of Los Angeles, California! Julie Goes Green is the fabulous invention of two sisters, Julie & Shelly, who you will meet as amazing tasters Paige Parsons Roache, Patrizia Mari Barretto and vegan actor/poet/human Sean Hill sample the divine at this sustainable and green restaurant!
We love a new vegan restaurant and Julie Goes Green is as good as it gets! There is no need to kill a squid to enjoy calamari at this restaurant. Shelly explains that they batter coconut meat to make it even better than the cruel version. The taste testers are already thrilled before they try the pizza! Check out the California Sunshine pizza. It looks like the kind of pizza you might want to eat at sunrise or any time! Shelly and Julie explained that they wanted to put avocado on a pizza and this is what they came up with. The taste testers also tried the buffalo cauliflower, Julie’s Favorite pizza, lasagna, and eggplant parmesan today. This is what we call a New Years Feast!
Jane tries the fettucine as Julie’s son comes out and shares his experience being vegan while going to NYU in New York. This restaurant is family run with Julie’s two kids working hard alongside her sister, Shelly. Julie has been working in the restaurant industry for over two decades, and she and Shelly have been plant-based for just as long. Julie Goes Green is their first “green” restaurant and it is also their dream come true. Not only is it vegan/ plant-based, but they also make sure to use biodegradable materials for their food items, which makes it a sustainable business as well. Come out and support this new eco-friendly vegan family-owned business next time you are near Sepulveda Blvd. and the 405 Freeway in West LA. Happy New Year 2019 everyone!!!
