About Ray's Vegan Soul
Whole Plant Based Food
Ray's Vegan Soul was crafted in the mind of Chef Ray Milton a.k.a. Sugar Ray when he saw a need for healthy, delicious food in the community and used his culinary skills to make his dream a reality. Chef Sugar Ray is a former boxer and trainer turned personal chef and baker, so he fully understands the need for healthy and nutritious food. He wanted to keep the feel good in food without the health consequences. He took on the feat of making it taste amazing, was extremely successful at it and that is how Ray's Vegan Soul was born.
Ray's Vegan Soul creates foods that are exceptionally, flavor-full, nourishing, delicious, sophisticated and unique. All of our food goods are made with the best, freshest ingredients and we are organic whenever possible. Many of Ray's delicious masterpieces are made from whole grain flours (excellent health benefits), alternative sweeteners, (unrefined and healthy), and pure cold-pressed oils.

From the Chef's Creative Mind Directly to Your Plate
What Makes Ray's Vegan Soul Different
COOKING WITH HEART
"I love creating food that is appealing to the eye and the palate. I am the youngest of six and I can still recall the first time I made pancakes for my siblings. They loved them and at ten years old I was hooked on cooking. That feeling of excitement and hopeful anticipation is with me every time I create something. I love the challenge of taking traditional recipes and updating them using ingredients that are healthier and Vegan. It is gratifying to introduce new flavors in new combinations to create edible masterpieces. The smiles and soft moans that are uttered are addictive praise. It inspires me to continue to create new recipes and it feeds my soul."
-Chef "Sugar Ray" Milton
A common misconception is that people cannot get sufficient protein from any other source outside of meat. It's an untrue statement and unfortunate that so many are misinformed. Not only are sources such as quinoa, amaranth, oatmeal, seeds, beans and nuts excellent alternatives but they taste great! Give us a try and we will show you exactly what we mean.
Ray's Vegan Soul believes in going organic whenever possible. We understand that some foods during certain seasons are more difficult to get in organic form than others. Eating organic is extremely important as many fresh foods are contaminated with pesticides, man-made fertilizers, GMOs, and more. That's why we feel that providing meals with organic fruits and vegetables is paramount in the food industry. Our customers are our first priority.
