Every summer at the biennial Fancy Food Show, the Javits Center in New York City turns into a massive food hall as thousands of specialty food vendors from across the world occupy the space to showcase their finest culinary goods. The quality and the variety of food items displayed at this year's show was no exception - these are just a few of my favorite things!

Lenny & Larry's

Who said vegan treats that are packed with protein can't be delicious? Lenny & Larry's makes delicious vegan cookies and brownies that are rich in protein and fiber. Among the variety of cookie flavors that ranged from the old-fashioned snickerdoodle to classic chocolate chips, I would recommend the pumpkin spice. Each bite of the dense yet moist cookie packsa kick of rich pumpkin flavor. The protein brownies could serve as the perfect snack after a workout (each brownie has 20 grams of protein!) or after a savory meal. Perhaps you can even top it with vegan ice cream!
