5 Reasons to Vegan this Week

A
few pick-me-up products to remind you how sweet it is to be vegan these days:

 

1.
Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet
potato is one of my favorite super foods, and now I can carry it with me
wherever I go! These chips are hearty, crunchy, salty and still pretty
nutritious. They pair well with sunried tomato pesto or even fruit salad!
Almost all of the chips from this brand are certified vegan (except for the
cheddar varieties and the chocolate chip strips, which sound kind of funky anyway).

2.
Vintage Tennessee Vegan Purse

Found
this cool Tennessee purse on Etsy, it could be a great, quirky addition to your
fall wardrobe. Whether you’re from Tennessee or not, rock it with a pair of
jeans. But act fast- this vendor’s supplies are limited.

3.
Eli’s Earth Treasure Bar

With
Halloween on my radar, I can’t stop thinking about chocolate. This vegan bar,
from Sjaak’s organic chocolates, is a vegan’s dream come true. Made with
non-dairy chocolate, peanut butter and caramel, it tastes a bit like a Butterfinger,
but way less processed. It’s also gluten free!

4.
Sanctuary Vegan Sweater Dress

This
white sweater dress with faux-leather sleeves is unlike anything I’ve ever seen
and I’m totally getting it. The tunic hemline and pockets give it a casual
feel, but with the jeweled neckline and tight bust you could definitely wear it
for a night out with the girls.

5.
Macadamia Nut Cheese from Punk Rawk Labs

Vegans
love this dairy-free cheese lab, which makes all of its products with nut milk.
This holiday season, I’m going for the Smoked Macadamia nut cheese with the
black pepper crust. It’s a bit more solid than the spreadable cashew cheese and
I bet it’s going to be a huge hit in the mix of holiday hors d’oeuvres.
