What do you mean by "clean" comfort food?

We do not care to ingest nasty chemicals, preservatives and gmo's that are found in many processed foods. Many of our ingredients are organic because we value our health and the health of our customers. Our mission is creating delicious tasting "comfort food" while keeping the ingredients free from harmful substances. Therefore it is "clean" :)

How do I reheat my frozen cheesesteak?

If your cheesesteak is frozen, defrost it in refrigerator overnight or on the counter for 3 hours. Once thawed preheat oven to 375 and tear off the round "dina's" sticker (only) from foil.

Where did you get the idea for vegan cheesesteaks?

We were born and raised in the suburbs of Phila.  We honor and respect our roots and those roots love food. We grew up in the steak and hoagie business as Dina's grandfather, Joe Sr., owned Joe's Snack Bar for over 20 years. He learned his craft from the famous Jim's Steaks back in the 1960's.  It was only a matter of time for a cruelty-free, plant based Philly cheesesteak to emerge from the Lauro genes.

What sets you apart from other vegan comfort food?

We like to first say that we love all vegan businesses. We all have the same goal in mind, which is reducing animal cruelty by creating plant based alternatives for our communities. At Dina's, we take pride in our ingredients to be free of harmful additives, preservatives and dyes. We use simple, fresh ingredients in our recipes which you can taste. Our foods are not overly salty or too sweet. They are just right! It's an art to us, and while its traditional comfort food, we are making a healthier version.

Did you have an official training for your business?

In 2010 when Dina realized she wanted a career in healthy foods, she enrolled at the Natural Gourmet Institute in Manhattan.  From there she interned at Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, where she was introduced to the benefits of a raw food lifestyle.  She fell in love with this way of eating and enrolled into their 9 week Health Educator course.  Now she is very well rounded and incorporates both styles into her food.
