Dan & Nicole Talk About Seitan (and are the cutest vegan couple ever!) – Upton’s Naturals Interview

A few months ago Ethan and I had a rare opportunity to sit down with the vegan powerhouse couple behind Upton’s Naturals, a vegan seitan company based in Chicago. As a result we walked away with some delicious goodies (pictured below) and personally, a new found hope for romantic vegan love.

Seriously, you won’t want to miss this interview — we cover it all from Upton’s foundation, why Nicole and Dan became vegan, how they met, the origins of seitan, and more! As always, don’t miss the outtakes at the end! Have I mentioned that this is the most adorable vegan couple I’ve ever met?! Next to Sarah and Liz, of course! ;)

Everything we tried (pictured below): the Vegan Gyros Wrap, Vegan BBQ Slaw Sandwich, and the Tamale were all phenomenally delicious! Pick up some of their goodies and check out their recipes page for super cool tips on what to make and how to make it!

    She was my yoga teacher when I lived in Chicago and she introduced me to him because I was the president of my school’s vegetarian club and they gave a lot of stuff for a fundraiser. They’re awesome.
