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…

Nada Lada

That is exactly what has been going on over here for the last few days.  Nada.  I’ve been lounging on the couch catching up on some reading.  Exciting, I know!  My food hasn’t really been anymore exciting than that, so that’s why there haven’t been many posts lately.  I’m going to try to get back on track posting regularly though.

Today for breakfast I had some of these oatmeal squares.  They were really good and I wasn’t even hungry until lunch!



Then there was more lounging and reading until lunch time.

For lunch was a leftover morningstar farms hotdog from last night.  These things are really good, but the best part is I don’t have to worry about which parts of the little piggie got thrown into the hotdog!  Oh yeah, and I also like them because they’re only 50 calories each!

I had this guy with some Corazonas squeeze of lime chips.

Dessert was the last little scoop of this coconut ice cream (yum yum yum!)


With a handful of strawberries (I hadn’t had any friuts or veggies yet, lol)


Ate it right out of the carton!!

Then it was more nothingness/playing with the dogs.  Then I decided to get my butt up and do something so I made a quick little trip to Whole Foods and got some goodies.  I only let myself spend $20, so I didn’t come out with a whole lot of stuff, but I got a few Larabars for snacking, a watermelon, some fruit leather, some grass fed lean ground beef, some Wisconsin cheddar, and a few other things that I can’t really remember.

Then I came home and fired up the grill!

We had burgers (I also threw a few chicken breasts on for some stuff later this week).  And grilled eggplant, squash, and zucchini.


With some of that aged cheddar!


Altogether now.


And we busted into the watermelon for dessert.  This may have been the best watermelon I’ve ever had!  It was so juicy and amazing!


I went back for seconds on the watermelon.  I couldn’t help myself- it was fabulous!!

Well, I guess that I’m about caught up now!  Till tomorrow!
