Pur Vegan Mints & Gum – $10 off

Before I became vegan I always had some sort of mint or gum in my handbag and you’d, inevitably, see me popping one in my mouth at some point during the day. As a vegetarian I didn’t read the labels/ingredients on candy. I just presumed they were vegetarian, but the truth is a lot of them aren’t. Candy and gum can contain gelatin (made form animal carcasses and skin), carmine (made from cochineal beetles), confectioners glaze (made from shellac beetles) and... Read More

Raaka Virgin Chocolate Review

While we were at the Winter Village in NYC (read our review here), we stopped at Raaka Chocolate to try some of their samples. Lydia knew about the company and immediately recognized them when she saw their stand. They’re an artesanal shop, 100% vegan, with a dedicated facility so there’s no cross-contamination. Aren’t we glad we did. Their stuff is amazing. They had a number of samples available, so we tried a few different flavors, but what really knocked... Read More

Green Pea Cookie Review

  Green peas are all the rage nowadays, from protein powder for your post-workout shake to vegan chicken strips and cookies. Cookies? Yes, cookies. The lovely folks at Green Pea Cookie got their inspiration from a trip to Singapore (see story below). These delectable green goodies are a popular snack there, so they decided to bring them to the US. Lucky for us! The green, quarter-sized, dome shaped goodies are a little sweet, a little salty and have a mild green pea flavor.... Read More

Fresh N Lean Delivery Review & Discount Code

Have you ever wished someone else cooked hearty, gluten-free, vegan meals for you? You’ve bought frozen TV dinners at the supermarket and although some brands are better than others, they don’t taste like a home cooked meal. Then, let me introduce you to Fresh N Lean.

Sweet Designs Chocolatier – Review

Looks yummy, right? “Mmmm, chocolate!” was the first thing I thought when I received the sample package from Sweet Designs Chocolatier to review. The company isn’t vegan, they also make milk chocolate, but they have a nice selection of certified organic, vegan and gluten-free 70% dark chocolate barks and an assortment box—with truffles and other goodies! Who doesn’t love good chocolate? And it says “vegan” right on their package and website.... Read More

Tofurky Vegetarian Roast for the Holidays

Tofurky Roast in the box The holiday season is a merry time of the year to spend time with loved ones and friends, catching up, reminiscing and enjoying a delicious holiday meal together, but it can be a lonely time for some vegetarians and vegans. For years, people who chose not to eat meat have been left out of the holiday meal celebration (or had to bring their own separate meal), but that all changed with the introduction of products like the Tofurky Roast. Now, everyone can... Read More

Better Bean Review

Mauro and I love all types of beans and we cook them from scratch for the most part. We always keep some prepared beans (canned, frozen, etc.) on hand, though, for those days when we’re tight on time and need to prep a quick dinner. Better Bean is now one of our favorites to keep on hand. They have 5 types of prepared and well seasoned beans that are ready to heat and eat. Of course all of their flavor are vegan. Each flavor can be used in a variety of ways and recipes... Read More
