Pumpkin EVERYTHING!!!

Standard

Of course, I’m on the eat-drink-live everything pumpkin flavored bandwagon, because gosh damn it’s delicious!!!

The So Delicious Pumpkin Spice Coconut milk had me saying “Is this real life?!” It’s better than pumpkin pie… It’s better than any pumpkin flavored anything I’ve ever tried. I drink it on its own, in coffee, and in tea. I plan on making over night oats or baked oatmeal with it soon.

Don’t miss this one my friends!

I had to forcefully keep my hands in my pocket while at the store, because there is also a Mint Chocolate variety. If I bought that, my life would be over as I know it. I’d do nothing but down cartons of it at a time.

Who am I kidding… I’m getting it next time and I’ll let you know.

Do you have any great pumpkin finds?

Product Review: Vegan Bleu Cheese!

Standard

In a world where my salads were a little boring, my chikn fingers were a little bland, and my sandwiches weren’t that exciting…. I found Follow Your Heart High Omega Vegan Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing, and my life is forever changed!

Creamy and tangy like the real thing, this is a new staple in my fridge. It is a little less intense in flavor than traditional Bleu cheese, but I have no complaints here! I like to put it in Gardein Chikn strips with some hot sauce or on an avocado sandwich. I’d pretty much put it on anything! Let me know if you’ve tried it!

I cannot say enough good things about Gardein’s Crispy Chik’n Sliders! I’ve bought these multiple times and I just can’t get enough. The Chik’n bakes up to be moist and crispy, and the bun is soft and delicious. I love putting avocado and BBQ sauce on these bad boys. They come in a 4 pack for about $5. Well worth it, I say!

Have any of you tried these? How do you like to prepare them?

Avocado Pizza and a Miracle

Amy’s Vegan Margarita Pizza with avocado slices is uh-may-zing! I mean, how could it not be? I definitely recommend this combo… I added some sea salt which was the perfect finishing touch.

Well, the impossible has happened. Hell has frozen over, pigs have flown, it’s a miracle! My meat and cheese loving boyfriend has agreed to go vegan for 6 months! Ok, “agreed” is stretching the truth. He lost a bet, but nonetheless, we are now in a 100% vegan household! He has made it through 2 weeks and is going strong. And, it’s so nice to not come home to the smell of him cooking burgers or chicken. This is truly a miracle!

Product Review: Hail Merry Miracle Tarts

Look at these bad boys! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down with a cup of tea and Hail Merry’s Coconut Vanilla Creme Miracle Tart. I was pleasantly surprised! The Creme, which is coconut oil based, is the texture and thickness of custard, with a rich coconut vanilla flavor. The crust is rich and buttery. These little guys are cute, raw, vegan, and worth giving a try for sure!

Just when I thought I’d found the ultimate treat, I tried the Chocolate Mint Miracle Tart…

There are no words to accurately describe the deliciousness of this tart. None. Picture the deepest cocoa flavor on the planet, mixed with smooth and refreshing mint, wrapped up in dark chocolate buttery crust. Or picture a giant Andes mint, only bigger and 5,000,000 times as good. Oh, this one is raw and vegan too. Give these a try, you won’t be sorry! (Unless you’re on a diet or just hate delicious things)

Product Review: Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders

WHOA!

These crispy strips far exceeded my expectations. I’ve tried many chicken substitutes and haven’t found a great one. The texture was off, the breading left something to be desired, or the flavor was just plain boring.

Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Strips have completely changed my mind. They blow every other chicken substitute out of the water.

These strips are extremely crispy and have a texture that is very similar to the real thing. The flavor is delicious, not too faint or too pronounced that they couldn’t be successfully added to other recipes that call for chicken. I’m so happy I tried these!

Carnivore Review: My hardcore meat-eating boyfriend gave these an A+, and asked me multiple times if they were real chicken!
