ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Going vegan does not mean resorting to “rabbit food” and people considering the diet can experience it during the Albuquerque Vegan Jazz Brunch.
The brunch on Sunday, Feb. 2, is hosted by Dr. Ruby Lathon, a vegan chef and holistic nutritionist. It will feature a menu full of flavorful vegan courses
prepared by chefs Neema Pickett and Brenda Hollingsworth-Marley, with assistance from Lathon’s brother Marcus Lathon. A mimosa bar and entertainment by the John Rangel Trio also will be part of the event.
“As a nutritionist I help people successfully transition into a plant-based diet so they can stick with it and not feel deprived of their favorites,” Lathon said. “I help them veganize all of those yummy recipes that are healthier and taste just as good.”
