Southern Roots Vegan Bakery has quickly made a name for itself as one of the best vegan bakeries in the US. Wife-and-husband team of Cara and Marcus Pitts started the vegan business in San Antonio and quickly expanded to offer nationwide shipping due to the high demand for their products. Southern Roots makes donuts, cookies, cakes, and pies, with options for corporate dessert bundles and a donut-of-the-month subscription club.

In addition, this vegan business makes a Fire Cider—a fermented beverage made with apple cider vinegar, horseradish, turmeric, and habanero—to help keep your immune system up.
The Alkaline Electric Goddess—aka Ellise Nikki Johnson—is a vegan chef that offers catering, food prep, and a small online store filled with alkaline foods.

Tubby’s Taste offers a subscription club that is customizable to how many cookies you’d like per month.
Leuna Botanicals is a vegan skincare company made for all skin types.

Cayla has been writing for VegOut since 2020 and has been plugged into the LA vegan food scene since Veggie Grill was pretty much the only vegan restaurant in the city. Aside from writing articles, Cayla enjoys embracing their inner 85-year-old by listening to classical music, making playlists for their friends, and staying active through swimming, hiking, cycling, and yoga. In their free time, Cayla likes writing poetry, learning about outdoor survival and alternative lifestyles, and is always searching for the best loaf of sourdough bread.
