🌶🌽🍍Trader Joe’s Makes Vegan Food Shopping Oh So Easy🍓🍒🍉

 

 Did you know Trade Joe’s Carries a pretty large selection of vegan foods?

I know vegan food shopping can be difficult in a regular non vegan food store. So, I decided to throw in a bonus post today.

Go to your local Trader Joe’s. walk up to their customer service station and ask one of their friendly staff members to print you out a list of all the vegan items they carry in the store.

Yes! They will print you a list and they will be happy to  do it😀

Just incase you are thinking, “Linda this is too good to be true” I posted a picture of the list my Local Gainesville Fl Trader Joe’s printed out for me!

There is a total of 5 pages of all vegan items they carry. They even spilt it into categories, Beverages, Shef-Stables, Refrigerated, Deli,Cheese, and so on.

So go get your list printed and find those awesome vegan foods in no time!

🎄🎁Vegan Christmas Cookie Recipes 🎁🎄

img_1836

The Holidays can be a little crazy! So, I’ve decided to give you all a little help

Over the next few days I will be posting recipes that will take you from appetizers to entrees to sides, desserts, drinks, you name it.

🍪Today I’m starting with Christmas cookies 🍪

This will help you cross the, ” I need a vegan cookie recipe for the cookie exchange”, off your list.

Plus who doesn’t love having yummy vegan Christmas cookies in the house all of December?!

Christmas Cookies

Christmas  cookies also make thoughtful gifts. Tie them up in a pretty little bag and you have the perfect present to give a teacher, the mail man, the paper boy ( are there still paper boys?), your neighbor, or that unexpected relative that shows up out of the blue.

⭐️I hope you enjoy this post⭐️

If you make any of these recipes let me know what you think

Keep an eye out for more Christmas post to help you ease your way through the holiday!

New! Silk Caramel Almond Creamer

img_1823

Silk outdid themselves with this Caramel Almond Creamer!

I saw it in the refrigerated case and said to myself ” oh please please please let this be as good as I’m hoping it is”!

Guess what…it is!!!!

It has a wonder  caramelly taste and has only 15 calories per Table spoon.

Free of dairy, Gluten, soy, cholesterol, and carrageenan, what more could you ask for?!

Well, I have more. I love this Creamer, so I thought it would probably go well with my other love that comes out this time of year.

You guessed it, well maybe you didn’t, but anyway

Drum roll please

 Barnie’s Santa’s White Christmas Coffee

img_1822

These two where made for each other !

So good you don’t even need to add sugar.  Now this is  all coming from someone who isn’t a big coffee fan. I’m telling you you really need to try this. It’s like drinking a dessert.

It’s Christmas in a mug, warm, smooth, and soothing, it even smells heavenly.

I’m going to go and make myself a mug of heaven now

⭐️Hope you enjoyed this post⭐️

If you try the Creamer or the coffee, or both let me know what you think

☕️Flaxseed Detox Tea☕️

img_1780

So, Thanksgiving is over. Are you still feeling the affects?

Maybe ate a little too much stuffing or couldn’t decide between the vegan pumpkin pie or the vegan apple pie, so you had both?!

Need something to get rid of that bloated overstuffed feeling?

I’ve  got just what you need

Flaxseed Tea

Flaxseed contains both soluble and insoluble fiber which is very effective in flushing out toxins. This tea will get you feeling back to your normal awesome self in no time!

Click the link above for the recipe. This recipe calls for honey. I, like many other vegans, do not consume honey. You can replace it with agave or just leave it out completely.

Ok, gotta go my Flawseed tea s getting cold😀

Trader Joe’s Chocolate Peppermint Almond Beverage

img_1764

There’s a new beverage in town giving Eggnog a run for it’s money!

🎁Trader Joe’s Chocolate Peppermint Almond Beverage!🎁

I was so excited when I saw this in the refrigerated section!  I grabbed it and did a happy dance💃🏻 I couldn’t wait to get home and try it. I was so hoping it would live up to my expectations. The carton said it was Smooth and Creamy with a rich cocoa and Peppermint flavor.  I had to see for myself.

I opened the carton, it smelled chocolatey and Pepperminty. Off to a good start.

Poured some in a fancy glass, it looked Creamy and chocolatey.

img_1765

Now for the moment we’ve all been waiting for…

YUM! It is Creamy and chocolatey and pepperminty!

Its pretty darn good!

You can serve it cold or warmed

It’s Gluten free, Lactose and Dairy Free, Soy free, and Vegan

Perfect for the Holidays

⭐️Hope you found this post useful⭐️

🍂🍁🌰Happy Thanksgiving Vegan Style🍂🍁🌰

img_1590

 Can you believe it’s that time of year already?!

I love Thanksgiving. Being with my  family. We always have an amazing time!

Ok, I know Thanksgiving can be a challenging  Holiday.  I happen to be the only Vegan in my extended family. Every year we spend Thanksgiving with my parents. My mom makes so much amazing food. Most of the food I chose not to eat. Instead I bring my own food. I bring enough for me and to share with my family if they like. No one feels awkward or left out. Thanksgiving with non vegans doesn’t have to be hard or scary. The thing I love best about Thanksgiving is being with the people I love. It’s not all about the food. So my advice to you is, don’t make it about the food. Don’t make it awkward. Just enjoy sending time with the people you love and care about.

But being the Giving, haha, person I am, I decided to make thinks a little easier for you!

I’m sharing a link  to wonderful vegan Thanksgiving recipes!

Make enough for yourself and a little extra to share with others. You never know you may turn them on to something they really like👍

Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes 

⭐️I hope you find these recipes to be helpful⭐️

Remember, it’s the time spent with family and friends and for being thankful for all the wonderful things in your life that matters most.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Look What’s Growing In Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Patch🎃

img_1336🎃Pumpkin pumpkin everywhere 🎃

I found a nice round up of pumpkin beverages at Trader Joe’s and I thought I would share them with you.

I’ve  personally tried them all. So I can honestly say they are worth buying👍

🍂First up is the Pumpkin Almond Milk🍂

img_1361

It’s creamy and smooth and orange.  What’s not to like?

It’s Almond milk meets pumpkin pie. It’s thicker then regular almond milk and a lot sweeter. It definitely has a pumpkin taste. I’ve  used it in oatmeal, coffee, and just by itself. It’s higher in calories than regular Almond Milk, but we all deserve a little indulgence now and then!

🍂Next up Pumpkin Spice Coffee🍂

img_1362

This coffee actually taste and smell ( it’s like aroma therapy) like pumpkin spice❤️

Its a Medium Dark Roast with orange peel, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, ground vanilla bean, and pumpkin spice. Aaaah!

🍂Last but not least Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea🍂

img_1363

Who doesn’t  love a hot cup of tea on a cold autum day?!

This tea will definitely awaken your senses. It smells so good!

Each little triangle pouch contains Rooibos tea with cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove.

This tea is perfect just the way it is, no need to add anything to it. You are more then welcome to add anything you like to it though.   Hmmm, how about a pumpkin tea latte with Pumpkin Almond Milk!

🎃Hope you enjoyed this post🎃
