EPISODE 14: Little Choc Apothecary — LISTEN HERE!

How do you enjoy eating out at restaurants when your job — and livelihood — require you stay in shape? That’s the question that led food entrepreneur Julia Kravets down the road to starting her own business.

Little Choc Apothecary is the first fully vegan and gluten-free crêperie in NYC, offering a creative selection of sweet and savory crepes and homemade baked goods, as well as a selection of coffee, teas, vegan wine and beer and freshly pressed juices.

In my conversation with Julia, you’ll learn:

  • How she went from a career as a fashion model to launching her own business
  • How Little Choc is staying true to its mission of making healthy and cruelty-free food that’s also delicious
  • What food trends Julia has seen catching the attention of New York City’s health conscious foodies

We also talk about Julia’s personal journey and why she ultimately chose to embrace a plant-based lifestyle.
