Vegan Products We're LOVING Right Now!
Sophia from 'Veggies Don't Bite' is the best. A fiery, sweet, hot-sauce loving' pregnant lady (for now, at least), she's also a bit of a breakfast genius. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Sophia at a blogging event about a month ago and after hearing her talk about her new overnight oats jars, I knew I needed one. Sophia is kind of the Queen of Oats. She regularly posts yummy looking bowls of oats created by her and her cute kiddos on her Instagram and offers 10 different (and YUMMY!) flavor ideas for your overnight oats jars right in the included pamphlet. Flavors like Blueberry Muffin, Oatmeal Cookie, and Ice Cream Sundae will convert you to a overnight oat-er if you aren't already. And oatmeal- especially when packed with Sophia's recommendation of fruit, nuts, and hemp seeds- is super nutiritious and (now) super easy to take with you everywhere you go! Since the jar retails at just $9.99, its affordable and makes a great gift for anyone, especially someone trying to join the healthy breakfast club! See Sophia's magic at work: VeggiesDontBite.com.
I've been sucking on VerMints for quite a while now, but when they offered to let me taste-test ALL their flavors? Well I said heck yeah! These organic, gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, nut-free AND kosher mints come in 6 flavors: Peppermint, Wintergreen, GingerMint, Café Express, Cinnamon, and (my favorite) Chai. Instead of keeping the mints whole with horse bones and hooves, they use gum tragacanth & agar- much more appetizing post-dinner!
What I love most about VerMints, aside from the lack of guilt over ingredients, are the creative flavors. The spiced mints will make you reconsider what a breath mint is all about. Between the refreshing wintergreen and the sweet chai, plus the caffeine-quenching coffee flavor- there's a VerMint for every occasion! Find 'em in regular tins or pocket-sized at VerMints.com.
Edward and Sons online grocer has become my go-to spot lately for specialty products I can't always find and don't always want to have to look at 6 different stores for. They have everything from canned jackfruit to boxed mac 'n' cheese, sprinkles to shredded coconut. Basically everything a good vegan, gluten-free kitchen needs! I love that I can find a staple like coconut cream next to Not Chick'n bouillon cubes and cheese sauce mixes, and can get it all shipped directly to my door- no hopping store to store hoping they have what I need. And the gravy above? Well that has become a staple around here, too. We're always whippin' up roasted veggies and potatoes 12 ways, and these ready-in-3-minute gravies pack a lot of flavor and are perfect in a pinch! Check 'em out at EdwardandSons.com.
