Favorite vegan products, part I

Sorry for the unintentional hiatus!  I started a new job and between that and summer classes I’ve been SLAMED!!

I thought it might be fun to go through a few of my favorite vegan products just for anyone who might be curious.  There will be many parts to this new segment, so stay tuned for more!

First and foremost my top two favorite vegan products are FRUITS and VEGETABLES!!  That being said, let’s move on!


I love it because it tastes just like mayo but doesn’t contain any animal products!



SO Delicious coconut milk creamer.

SO much better than soy creamer!  It adds a wonderful texture and flavor to your morning coffee.



Silk Almond Milk.

I love it because it is DELICIOUS!  WAY better than soy milk!!  It’s creamy like whole milk (not watery like soy) and it tastes amazing straight up in a glass.  And almonds are so very good for you!  



Whole Soy and Co soy yogurt. 

6 grams protein, low fat, great source of calcium!  Beats the PANTS off of every other soy yogurt out there!!  Soy yogurt can be hit or miss and this one is definitely a hit!  Favorite flavors so far are peach and blueberry.




This has been my best find so far- it makes amazing mac and cheese, is perfect for pizza, and makes one heck of a grilled cheese!  Best vegan cheese hands down!



Maple Syrup

Love this stuff!  Amazing in oatmeal (and of course on pancakes!), but is also a good natural substitute for sugar.



Agave Nectar

Oh how I love thee!!  It tasted just like honey.  It’s wonderful in tea (hot or cold), smoothies, cereal.



Animal Cookies!

LOVE whole foods animal cookies!!  Most animal cookies have butter and/or milk in them (eww!), but not this brand- and they’re so yummy!



Whole Foods hamburger buns

One of the only burger buns I’ve found that are vegan.  They’re awesome too!


And last on the list for today…


Justin’s chocolate almond butter

Oh.My.Gosh.  This is waaaay better than Nutella!!  Way better for you too!  Enough said,


Hope you enjoyed part one!  More favorites coming soon…

Mama Mia!

Well, I had a whole post yesterday, but being the genius that I am, I didn’t save it before I tried to publish it and my sucky internet froze up whilst I was trying to publish and I lost the whole post!  I’ll try to recap real quick- it won’t be as good as the post I lost, but I’ll give it a go.

I’ll just post pictures and give comments on the pics instead of commentating the whole day.

A quick trip to the grocery…

Did you know that Dr Kracker’s are made right here in Dallas?!  I had no idea!  I don’t usually buy them because they are really expensive, but when I found that out I had to get some.  The pumpkin seed cheddar doesn’t disappoint!  Very tasty!  And pretty filling for a kracker!  I’m going to have to arrange a visit of some sort since they’re right here next to me!

I gave the amazing grass another go (last time I tried it, it upset my tummy.  I got a sample pack again to try it again and it was all good this time so I went back to get a tub of it.)  The chocolate flavor is so good!  I mix it with vanilla almond milk and it tastes just like chocolate milk, not “green” at all.




This was my last Ez 4:9 tortilla. Crying

In my quesadilla was black beans, cheddar, onions, bell pepper.  Toppins included salsa, big dollop of greek yogurt, and jalapenos!  SOOOO good and I just LOVE how filling those Ez 4:9 tortillas are!


This was supposed to be dessert, but it was NOT BUENO!  I only had about 3 bites and I chunked it.  This is the only SO Delicious product I’ve ever tried that I didn’t like.  Oh well, there was bound to be something, lol.


Consumed this on my way to workout with my trainer.  I haven’t worked out like that in weeks, my arms are so sore I can barely lift them!



When I got home from the gym it was PIZZA TIME!  I think this was the best one to date!!

I used this recipe for the dough (it’s the only one I use now.  I’ve searched the world over for a great healthy pizza crust recipe and this is it!  So hearty, but light at the same time, and crispy too!)

Toppings included mozzarella, turkey pepperoni, caramelized onions, and bell peppers. YUM!



I also made a great salad!  With toasted almonds, dried cranberries, feta, and light raspberry vinaigrette!

My plate!




While the pizza dough was rising, I worked on some blueberry muffins.  I’ve been meaning to make these for days and I finally got around to it.  Here’s the recipe.  I get so many great recipes and ideas from this blog, it’s my favorite!  Mine weren’t as pretty as hers, but they are MIGHTY tasty! Mine turned out a little darker because I used organic sucanat instead of cane sugar, and sucanat is about the same color as brown sugar.  They still tasted fabulous though.  Next time I might try it with some regular old cane sugar.  I don’t usually keep it in the house though…
