A few of my (current) favorite things

Some vegan things I'm thankful for this year:
Clementines. Tart and sweet and oh so orange-y. I pop 'em like candy.

Frozen fruit. Since I have a smoothie almost every day, I keep a wide variety of fruit in my freezer so I can make whatever suits my fancy. Blueberry cherry, cherry banana, strawberry mango, I could go on and on and on.

I've blogged about this stuff before. It's really awesome. I like it in blended up oatmeal, but it also makes a mean pumpkin pie.

In defiance of the Whole Paycheck theory, WF brand shampoo, conditioner and bodywash are the cheapest I've found anywhere (about $2.50 a bottle). They're also free of animal products and parabens, have not been tested on animals, and work pretty darn well.

Oatmeal! Sometimes I have it twice a day.

I make my own chai tea lattes, without the honey (or $3+ price tag).

So flavorful. Compare this to Libby's and it's night and day.

A scoop a day keeps the protein deficiency away.

Simple ingredients, really good.

I thought I hated almond milk, I actually just hated Almond Breeze. This is creamy and pleasantly almond-y.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Some great items, there! I love Clementines, too, and I use the same Rice protein powder as you. Never tried Mimicreme or Almond Dream (actually I don't think they're available here yet), but they both sound terrific!

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving! :)

I buy that WF shampoo too! I love how cheap it is, whereas all the other organic brands are more than $7!

And ahhh, the joy of Clementines (especially the ones I used to get in Japan that didn't have seeds!)

Hi Kate -

I have a product line I would love for you to review - Zukay Live Foods raw, vegan and naturally fermented salsas and relishes (www.zukay.com). We don't cook them, and they're all naturally probiotic. Pretty cool stuff, and we make it up the road from you in Lancaster PA. We're in all the Whole Foods - in fact, I'll be demoing them in Silver Spring Thursday evening and P Street Saturday morning. Come check us out!
Thanks -

Scott
