As someone who once went completely vegetarian this is a big win! Back in the day, I went cold turkey vegetarian- get it, cold turkey. Anyways, I ended up having difficulty because I ate too much starch as substitute. This was over 10 years ago and it wasn’t as socially fad back then. Circa 2017 and I am happily incorporating better, healthier and tastier options into my diet. This is where Alexia comes in with their curations and deliciousness.
Founder of Alexia, Alex wanted to create distinctive and inspired convenient everyday side dishes that lived up to what he might create in his own Greenpoint kitchen.

Alex started by hand selecting the finest ingredients and producing only small batches at first making Alexia a hard to find favorite. Alex always used real ingredients and put quality and taste first.
