Don’t let the name Gym Talk fool you — the business has nothing to do with the gym, but everything to do with vegan food. Gym Talk is an all-vegan meal prep business serving Las Vegas.
What kind of food does Gym Talk make? The meal prep company is cooking up vegan comfort food and indulgent desserts.
We’re not going to lie; the first time we heard the name of the business we were confused.
Owner Nekeda Williams playfully explains her intention behind the name: “A lot of us talk about going to the gym, but that’s exactly what it is, talk!”
Las Vegas Vegan Meal Prep: Gym Talk
Originally a recurring vegan vendor at Las Vegas farmers markets, the Black-owned business was forced to change to delivery when the pandemic hit.
Her business model may be adjusting, but the one thing that won’t change — Gym Talk’s scrumptious meals with that home-cooked feel.
While Williams is making additions to Gym Talk’s menu, we wanted to get you excited about some of the dishes you can expect to see popping up in the near future.
Gym Talk Menu
We have to start with our favorite.
The mac and cheese is one dish we can’t stop thinking about. Seriously, we wish we had more hiding in our fridge somewhere. Creamy, cheesy noodles topped with green onion and a vegan bacon makes it easy to devour in one sitting (forget sharing). The dish is a must if you are on a quest to find the best vegan mac and cheese in Las Vegas.
Classic burgers with vegan cheese (an option for vegan bacon) and sandwiches served with chips are on the menu. We had the Philly cheezesteak, seasoned “steak” with caramelized onions and cheeze sauce piled on a toasted hoagie. It’s a two-hand sandwich for sure! Expect to see it pop up as a special.
Vegan seafood is also in the mix on Gym Talk’s new menu.
We tried the vegan shrimp, bacon, and potato kabobs. And yes, we did a double take at the shrimp, too.
You can count on more vegan seafood dishes like the Santa Monica Salad with vegan shrimp and vegan bacon as well as the Comfort Plate: vegan crab cakes, mac and cheese, mixed greens, and cornbread.
And then, there are the desserts.
Gym Talk can feature desserts like this decadent, gooey chocolate chip cookie, dipped in melted chocolate, then sprinkled with pistachio pieces and sea salt.
Then, there is the peanut butter chocolate cookie sandwich.This soft and delicious peanut butter cookies comes stuffed with a rich layer of chocolate in between.
And that lemon cake? Intensely flavored and iced to perfection!

After experimenting with multitudes of fads, she finally found a lifestyle that turned out to be so much more than just a diet. She settled in Vegas with her husband/photographer Daniel, and puppy, Layla, after traveling the world on cruise ships and living in New York City. The family recently welcomed the birth of their first child, a true vegan baby.
