Review: Luca Chiara vegan wallet

Monday, September 12, 2016

I’ve switched from your regular, bulky wallets to small, compact ones many years ago, and never regretted it. I used to collect all sorts of things in my wallet (cards, business cards, random bits of paper, receipts, etc) but now, all I have is the bare minimum: driver’s license, a couple of credit cards, health insurance card, a few bills. It’s light in my pocket and doesn’t cause back problems. So when Luca Chiara contacted us offering one of their vegan products for review, I was glad to...

Tsubi Soups

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

A little while ago we were contacted by the owner of Tsubi Soups asking if we would be interested in trying her products, since they’re all vegan. Being great fans of soups in general and miso soup in particular, we agreed and she sent us a few samples. Now, if you’re familiar with Japanese culture, you would know that they are masters of the cute. I mean, srly Japan? You just can’t beat them. So the package we got was really nice and the soup packets are super cute. Take a look: They’re...

So Delicious Ice Creams

Monday, March 14, 2016

Can I start this by saying I hate the fact that vegan ice cream has to be called “frozen dessert” or some other stupid name to avoid being sued? It’s ice cream, everybody knows it, everybody calls it that, but the manufactors can’t… I’m calling it ice cream and that’s it. With that out of the way, onward to the review. We received some coupons for free So Delicious items, so we decided to go for their ice cream. We’ve had some of their ice cream in the past, but they have expanded their product line...

Tribest Sedona Express Dehydrator Giveaway

Monday, February 8, 2016

There’s something so empowering about growing and/or preserving your own food. Since Mauro and I bought our house (eons ago), I’ve gotten into the habit of prepping and preserving meals to save time during a busy week. When we first moved in, the previous owners had left a bountiful veggie garden and several fruit trees that were at their peak of production. We wanted to keep as much of the fruit and veggies as we could to extend our eating season, so I began canning and freezing large batches of food. Why...

Early Morning – An Essay by Karen Winkler

atovegan_karen-winkler_

Good-bye, my dear friend.  It will be hard to be here without you.  We both are scraped and scarred from slipping on trails, and the deaths of loyal pets.   When we started volunteering together, we felt the same pull, and offered ourselves to the animals. We promised to keep them safe.  We watched countless dogs […]
