This week, Go Lightly, an eco-friendly store in Montclair, NJ debuted a vegan menu, allowing customers to indulge in cruelty-free treats. Storeowner Jen Chaky started selling vegan ice cream in her shop last spring, which gave her the idea to develop a full plant-based menu. Customers can enjoy items like raw mock-salmon salad, cashew stone-fruit pie, and a marinated raw veggie sandwich with cilantro pesto. While space is only available for about 10 customers at a time, Go Lightly also provides take-out options. “Customers were always asking for vegan food, so it was a natural progression,” Chaky says to Bloomfield Patch. “After all, a vegan, plant-based diet is the best for the planet and our bodies.”
