Veggie Education Happy Hour

vegan happy hourHelp people get educated and inspired about going vegan with a Veggie Education Happy Hour!

On Saturday, June 27th, Sexy Fit Vegan is putting on a special and unique event: a “Veggie Education Happy Hour”. The purpose is to bring people together to learn about making conscious choices for a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle, while breaking the common stereotypes about vegans (like you can’t have fun or drink a cocktail if you’re vegan)! I’m writing this blog post not only to tell you about this particular event, but also to encourage you to plan you’re own event where you live. After we’ve educated ourselves, and changed our own lives for the better, the next step is spreading the word and encouraging others to make the transition to a plant-based diet as well. What better way to do this then throwing a party! 

Check out the press release I wrote for event details and to get ideas for hosting your own event:

Sexy Fit Vegan® Ella Magers Presents Happy Hour Veggie Education Workshop

Celebrity Fitness Trainer & Vegan Diet Expert Gives People Information & Inspiration

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Miami Beach, FL

June 3, 2015

Guru of living Ella Magers shares her passion for helping people transform their lives with this unique event coming to Miami Beach on June 27th, 2015.

An 18-year vegan veteran, Ella has been a certified fitness and wellness expert for over 10 years. Her devotion to the health of people, combined with her passion for animals, her concern for the environment, and her fighter spirit lay the foundation for her brand, Sexy Fit Vegan® which she founded in 2013.

The Veggie Education Happy Hour was created in response to the growing number of people interested in learning about the benefits of a vegan diet plan and how to eat plant-based in a healthful, practical way.

“The great part about the Veggie Education Happy Hour is that it shows people how to create a smooth transition plan for people wanting to move in the direction of a plant based diet, but feel confused and overwhelmed when it comes to getting started,” says Ella.

Participants of the workshop will also enjoy fresh vegan food samples and sip on Sexy Fit Vegan’s own signature cocktails made with Casamigos tequila and Veev acai-infused vodka. They will also receive a parting goodie bags with samples from vegan-friendly, wellness-related companies such as Sisley of Paris.

Ella mentions that, “a Sexy Fit Vegan lifestyle is not about perfection, it’s about balance. Having cocktails socially for most of us in Miami is part of enjoying life, so I’m here to show people how to make those cocktails as healthy as possible by foregoing the sugar and artificial ingredients.”

Sponsors include Veev acai-infused vodka, Sushi Samba, Sobekick Gym, Plant Theory Botanical Café & Gourmet Market, Casamigos tequila, and Thrive Market.

The Veggie Education Happy Hour will be held at Sobekick Gym in South Beach (1860 West Ave. 2nd floor Miami Beach 33139) on June 27th at 2:30pm. Tickets can be purchased at

Conscious Bite Out Promoting Going Vegan

Conscious Bite Out Vegan Event Recap

Conscious Bite Out teamed with Seed Food and Wine Festival, Whole Foods Market, and Basil Park, for an outstanding vegan event I was fortunate enough to attend last night!

My boyfriend and I were greeted by Seed Food and Wine Festival co-founders Alison Burgos and Michelle Gaber making their own special recipe for spicy mango margaritas… no better way to start a night out!

Seed-Food-&-Wine-Allison-&-MichelleWe mingled during cocktail hour, meeting many interesting people with different stories leading to how they ended up at the event that night. The venue, Basil Park, was gorgeous, and the staff was friendly and made the experience excellent from start to end.

Once seated, we got to start with the wine… John Salley‘s The Vegan Vine wine. Outstanding! Our table-mates, a couple from Pinecrest, kept us busy with fascinating conversation all evening as we were served one delectable course after the other. Conscious Bite Out’s Veronica Menin gave a thoughtful intro and closing and was an incredibly gracious host. We also got to hear a few words from Alison about the upcoming Seed Food and Wine Festival 2015 in Miami, which I’m already pumped for (it will be here before we know it, November 18-22)!

Miami Vegan Dinner Event at Basil Park


I’m excited for Conscious Bite Out‘s vegan dinner event Thursday, May 7th so I wanted to share!

As the Miami New Times article states, “The beginning of the month is always an apt time to start new stuff: better habits, New Year’s resolutions (it’s only May, you have even months to make it happen), new hobbies. So maybe kick off May with Conscious Bite Out, a vegan dining experience by Basil Park‘s Tim Andriola.”

The dinner is sponsored by Whole Foods Market and Seed Food & Wine, and features a full five-course meal, passed hors d’oeuvres and organic wines. 

“We love Tim’s story, passion and cuisine,” says Conscious Bite Out co-founder Veronica Menin. “We love Basil Park and happy to have partnered up with Whole Foods Market and Seed Food and Wine to collaborate on this event together, always to inspire and create an awareness in our community of better food choices and to create better food choices available in restaurants as well.”
