Om Sabor!

Om Sabor

Vegan vibrations with flavors from the universe!

Dear Readers, it is my ultimate joy to share with you all The Vegetarian Blog’s new face for food festivals, catering, events and hopefully soon…pop ups. Ever since I started doing food festivals a few years ago, I had the face of The Vegetarian Blog and it was throwing off people whether our booth was a sign up blogging type or a food booth.  I was in search for an inspirational name for the past couple years but nothing felt too solid. After working at Dropbox HQ as a vegan chef, it defined my cooking as a fusion of Mexican and South Asian cuisine. I included 2 words in my new logo that are in Sanskrit and Spanish to showcase my essence of growing up in both cultures from India and Mexico. 

The Om symbol (the one that looks like a 3) is widely known in the yoga community as the sound/vibration symbol, and it’s been used in India for thousands of years to invoke God, angels, mantras, or positive consciousness meditation, (we could go on for days of the meaning of Om). Sabor is a spanish word meaning flavors. Together: Om Sabor is all positive vegan food vibrations with flavors from the universe!! I’m so excited about this new logo and I am on a mission to showcase how delicious, rich and beautiful vegan food can be from the fusion of cultural cuisines. I hope to get your blessings and support on this new challenging journey and have the opportunity to serve you an exquisite dish at an upcoming event!

Muchas Gracias and Happy Holidays!

ARBONNE

Amazing skin care, make up, nutrition, hair care… all VEGAN!!!

Hi guys I realize it’s been a long time since I’ve been around. After a new job at Greens Restaurant and doing Veg Festivals all year round, I’m finally going to get some time to get back to the blogging scenario. But first I want to share what I discovered at the WORLD VEG FEST in San Francisco this year. For those that know me very well, you’d know that I was crazy about Jane Iredale’s Skin Care Makeup, and have been using for over 10 years, but I tried Arbonne’s line of products, from foundation to eye and lips, and I’m in love! The results were as fabulous in HD coverage and lasting color as Jane Iredale’s. Difference is that this skin care is all PLANT BASED with no chemicals and CRUELTY FREE. Prices are about the same as Jane Iredale’s but they have a crazy extensive list of cool products I welcome you to check out. Maybe it’s time to get a cool self gift for xmas or for your friend!

Happy New Year!!!

My dear readers,
I hope you all had a peaceful and successful ending of the year 2015. I apologize for falling off the face of the earth, but within the last 3 months, my life took a 360° turn and everything changed for me! After participating as a food vendor at the World Vegetarian Day Festival in San Francisco, I was called in for an interview for a vegan chef position at Dropbox in San Francisco, and 5 days later I was hired! I moved to San Francisco and stayed at a friend’s house for two weeks, and a coworker hooked me up with a place close to work, awesome roommates, and great location in the outer Mission.

One of the most exciting things from work is that I get to create my own menu’s!!! Everyday has to be a new dish and we can’t repeat the same recipe so we create and cook over 300 different recipes from different cuisines everyday! And I can pretty much order any ingredients I need as well. I will do my best to share my creations and hopefully post some of work’s dishes in the blog.

All I can say about this whole amazing experience is that I am super grateful to all of you readers and supporters! You have inspired me to pursue a dream that I thought in the beginning was just a hobby, and is now the best job I’ve ever had in the most beautiful city of northern California. I’m really happy and I couldn’t have done it without your support and feedback. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!!!!

Your blogger,
Dhanistha
