Journalist Gayle King recently shared her favorite vegan finds in the April 2019 issue of Oprah’s O magazine—for which she works as editor-at-large. The journalist dished about new vegan food finds and her favorite PETA-approved shoes made by vegan brand Aera. “Dining out with my favorite vegan friend, Senator Cory Booker, has opened me up to a whole new world,” King wrote before sharing that she recently discovered New York City eatery Urban Vegan Kitchen. After sampling the restaurant’s lasagna and seitan-based chicken and waffles, King praised the quality and satiating qualities of the dishes, stating that it was better than her previous experiences with vegan food. “But this food was so yummy that I ordered a few dishes to share with O staffers,” King wrote. “Delicious is delicious, no matter what it’s made of!” As for the shoes, King raved about Aera’s high heels in a faux-snakeskin pattern made from partly recycled polyester.
