During a recent trip to my local Indian grocery store - New India Bazar, heyyy - I was surprised & pleased to discover that the dairy-obsessed Indians now began to accept plant-based milks! Within a vast aisle of dairy products such as whole milk, plain yogurt, kulfi, & paneer stood one lone row of Silk soy milk. Hey, it's a start, so I'll take it! It piqued my interest & I began searching for other vegan options to share with you!
another drink reviewed in another post), I picked it up since I was lured in with promises of chocolate & coconut.
I'm a huge fan of bars - portable & convenient packages of health & deliciousness - & Health Warrior Chia Bars tops my list. So when I saw they had a vegan & gluten-free protein bar, I knew I had to see if how it compared to my beloved. I purchased this from Safeway for just under $3 & I must say, it is SO not worth it. It's seriously underwhelming. I was expecting a rich, chocolate-peanut butter combo, but instead, it tasted fruity. I also was not a huge fan of the gritty & grainy texture. It was difficult to bite into & hard to chew. Personally, I didn't care for it & if you see this in your health food aisle, my suggestion would be to skip it.
Gardein is easily one of my fave faux meat companies. Aside from being affordable & accessible, I love how their products are focused on health as well as taste. While most Gardein products are not gluten-free or soy-free, I wanted to give a quick shout-out to this bad boy that I recently had a chance to try. DUUUDE. These are SO spot-on. Much like their fishless filets, which I also love, these have an undeniable & indescribable flavor accuracy. Basically, if you were a big sea-life eater as I once was, you will seriously DIE when you try these! Okay, maybe not literally. In all seriousness, go try these ASAP & enjoy the mercury-free, guilt-free, & cruelty-free taste!
Well, I did it. After over a year of growing my hair out, I made the decision last month to chop it off.
Why am I always late to the party? After being bombarded on social media about how amazing the new So Delicious Cashew Milk Ice Cream (dairy-free + vegan!) was, I finally found them at my local Safeway. At just about $5 each for four servings (who am I kidding, I could eat the whole thing), they are definitely a once-in-a-while splurge. My store had two flavors in stock: Snickerdoodle & Salted Caramel.
I'm not typically one for processed, instant meals (okay, sometimes I am) so when I found this product at Safeway for a hefty $3, I wondered if it compared to the little packets of Quaker Instant Oats in the crazy, unnatural flavors. So, naturally, I bought it to try.
