It takes more time to prepare a healthy, filling meal than to go through a drive-through,” says vegetarian chef Janna Melkonian. “But what is more important to you than your health?”

Melkonian owns Rappit Up, a food service business in Fresno offering nutritious and delicious meals for people who are looking for more plant-based options.

Check out the video above see how Melkonian hand-crafts a delicious veggie wrap that will delight your taste buds. 

Having been raised vegetarian since birth, Melkonian says, “I got to learn all the amazing benefits and powers of herbs. Not only how to incorporate them into meals, but also why they’re essential for overall health.”

On Saturday, she will be demonstrating her favorite recipes and sharing tasty samples at Granville Homes’ Health and Wellness Fair. The free event will be held from 1pm -4pm at Copper River Ranch in Fresno. The public is invited to attend.

Rappit Up foods are also available at Rio Acai Bowls in the downtown area and Yellow Mug Coffee in North Fresno. Melkonian offers meal prepping services, as well. Check out her Instagram feed for a sampling of her many offerings, including wraps, salads, rice bowls, pasta, sandwiches and soups.
