Review: NEW Silk Nutchello Beverages

It's the 21st century guys - there's absolutely no reason to drink pus-filled bovine secretions when companies like Silk are revolutionizing the non-dairy mylk market!

Whether you're anemic like me or not, getting your iron-laden greens in daily is SUPER important. Remember, other than being full of phytonutrients, GREENS MAKE YOU GLOW! So, for a busy lady like me, spending time to juice my veggies is not only time-consuming, but often the experiment results in a sub-par product, taste-wise. So, here are 2 ready-to-go bottled green juices that are tasty, sweet, & full of nutrient-dense veggies!

Beauty Review: Pacifica Rose Gold Brightening Primer

It's very rare for me to put the words "Pacifica" & "utter fail" in the same sentence, but I'm about to do just that.

Vegan Greek Yogurts!

If you follow the mainstream fitness community, you know the obsession with Greek yogurt is real. But as a conscious vegan, the idea of causing pain & suffering to baby & mama cows is more than enough to keep us away from this protein powerhouse. Well, NO MORE, I say! Two companies have launched VEGAN (yes, vegan AKA NO PUS, NO CHOLESTEROL, NO SATURATED FAT, & NO CRUELTY) Greek yogurts! After having tried the two brands, I knew I had to tell you about them!

Review: Gardein Pulled Pork Pockets

All I can say is: YAAAS. Back in the day (officially 6 years ago this past Christmas!), I was a HUGE fan of pork, especially pulled pork. Looking back, I feel so sad & disgusted to think I was eating little baby piggies, whom I loved! Talk about cognitive dissonance, right? Well, a few months ago (yeah, I'm late, bite me), I discovered this heavenly product at Republic Of V in Berkeley (now Animal Place's Vegan Republic) & immediately picked it up to try it.

Happy New Year! 2015 Reflections + 2016 Resolutions!

2015 Reflection

Well, looking back on last year's resolutions, I can honestly say I haven't stuck to any of them! This year has been a year of many changes - I seriously cannot believe another year has come & gone!

Review: Califia Pumpkin Latte

I am a huge fan of pumpkin spice anything. When I found out that Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice syrup was not vegan, it was almost Earth-shattering. So when I spotted this at Whole Foods (even though I had given up coffee), I knew I had to try it to see if it measured up to my former beloved.

Review: Annie's Vegan Gluten-Free Mac N Cheese

Ugh. I am a huge fan of (vegan) mac n cheese. Like, totally obsessed. Whenever there is a new boxed vegan mac n cheese option (a la Kraft), I'm on it. Now, to be fair, I was warned. The reviews for this product were atrocious. But, me being me, I had to try it for myself. Big mistake.

Review: Heidi Ho VEGAN, DAIRY-FREE Cheese

Now I'm not typically a huge processed-food eater, but I LOVE me some vegan cheese! It's usually harder to find gluten-free & soy-free vegan meat & cheese alternatives, but along with my beloved Daiya, I love trying nut-based cheeses on occasion as a little treat with my meals. One such brand I got to try recently  was Heidi Ho in the Smoky variety.

Vegan-Friendly Finds At Your Local Indian Store!

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!
