You know, like raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.
I do love whiskers on kittens. 🐱💕
Wow, four lines in and I’ve already digressed. That might be a new record. 😬
Today I’m sharing 5 favorite vegan products (video included at
1. Vanilla Bean Powder
In most recipes, it’s not essential. Yes, you can almost always substitute some pure vanilla extract for the powder.
But I tell you, kids, once you smell this stuff – and try a little in a recipe, you’ll be wooed!
I love this Kiva brand. While it looks pricey, you use a little each time. Most recipes I use 1/4 tsp, 1/2 at most. Also, you can just open and sniff it whenever! #kidding #ornot 😬
2. McDougall Soup Cups
Our older girls are obsessed with ramen noodles. These McDougall soup cups make for fast and easy prep.
Also healthier. It’s hard to find noodle cup-soups that don’t contain MSG or animal ingredients. These are great vegan products. And, note they are indeed vegan (the ‘chicken’ can be distracting, but label clearly identifies these cups as vegan).
I first bought these soups at a grocery store just over the border. Then, I found them on
3. David’s Tea Matcha
Years back I was into steeping loose teas from David’s Teas. Then I wasn’t. Convenience took over.
A shop opened in our area recently, and walking by one day I decided to stop in. They have so many new offerings. Including matcha!
Sometimes I play
The matcha varieties include unsweetened grades to flavored options with sweeteners. So, check the labels if you don’t want any sweeteners.
I also bought the new sachet teas.
4. InnoFoods Dark Chocolate Clusters
I think every one of my favorites
#done #twistmyarm 😝
I scored these chocolate nuggets a couple of weeks back at Winners. These are
Kind of like my chocolate bark with benefits in nibbly bites of pumpkin seeds, coconut, quinoa, and flax all worked in. Were we on the same wavelength, InnoFoods?! #benefits
Doing an online search, I couldn’t find it on amazon.com. However, these and similar vegan products are on amazon.ca.
UPDATE: Just learned via facebook that these are available at Costco (thanks Victoria)!
5. Yoga Favorite Thing: Align Pants
They are just delicious leggings, anytime, anywhere.
They are the only leggings I really love wearing. For years I didn’t understand why people liked leggings! They felt itchy. Or sweaty. Or binding. Anyone else feel that way?
Then, a year or so back I was browsing in lulu’s sale rack, and the sales gal
Um… “the what?“…
I didn’t know what they were. There was one pair left in my size. I tried them on. I was sold. #hooklinesinker!
I wear the regular waist (not high waisted), 28″ length in size 4, for reference. I like full length to my ankles, and any shorter is far too short for my legs. But here are the crop and high-waisted for you to check out.
Perhaps you can tell me another style/brand of leggings that compares. If so, share!
I have many more “fave” products I want to share with you. But, I’d like to know if you find these posts useful. Yes?
Also, do you have fave products you’d like me to spotlight? I’d love to know some of your picks. Share in the comments
