Review: Luca Chiara vegan wallet


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... Read More

Tsubi Soups

They're super happy to be your next snack!

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?... Read More

So Delicious Ice Creams


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... Read More

Vegan Under Pressure Review & Giveaway

Cashew Lemon Cheezecake

Can you feel the pressure? Can you? The title of this new book sounds like the story of my life lately, but luckily it’s just a good ol’ pressure cooker cookbook. Vegan Under Pressure* is a new cookbook by Jill Nussinow, MS, RDN, aka The Veggie Queen. Jill is a veteran pressure cooker cook (see our review of The New Fast Food) and she whips up all sorts of healthful... Read More

Tribest Sedona Express Dehydrator Giveaway

Digital timer and temp control

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... Read More

Kajitsu – Japanese Shojin Cuisine in NYC

Course 6, Buckwheat Seed and Hijiki Rice

We were recently in NYC for a multi-birthday celebration, and had the opportunity to have dinner at Kajitsu. It’s a vegan (at least for dinner) Japanese restaurant that does multi-course meals based on a Japanese culinary tradition originated from Zen Budhism called shojin. The menu changes constantly to use ingredients that are in season and is inspired by the time of the... Read More

Jambu – Arctic Vegan Boot


Who doesn’t like to look stylish while wearing a warm and comfy, vegan winter boot? I certainly do. Luckily, Jambu has a line of women’s vegan shoes to fill this gap. Since I reviewed the Jambu Princeton last year, they’ve expanded the women’s line of vegan shoes and boots (yay!), added a vegan tab and labeled all their vegan shoes on their website, and even... Read More

Ecco Bella Review & Interview with Sally Malanga

Eyeshadow, Mascara, Water-Free Herbal Body Lotion and Eye Nutrients Cream

The health and beauty market is booming with eco- and vegan-friendly make-up, personal care and beauty products. We’re so fortunate, and so are the animals and our planet, to have an ever growing demand for cruelty-free products and to have companies willing to push themselves to fill this demand. Let’s face it, the world we live in is very animal ingredient-centric,... Read More

Almond Milk Cookbook Review & Give-away


We’re at the golden age of plant-based milks. Most supermarkets in the US now carry at least one type of plant milk. Be it coconut, almond, soy or rice, for the basic types, or cashew, flax, oat, hemp, sunflower, or quinoa for the not so common varieties. I’m sure I’ve forgotten some, but you get the point. “Ditch the dairy without giving up milk”. I’ll... Read More

Pur Vegan Mints & Gum – $10 off


Before I became vegan I always had some sort of mint or gum in my handbag and you’d, inevitably, see me popping one in my mouth at some point during the day. As a vegetarian I didn’t read the labels/ingredients on candy. I just presumed they were vegetarian, but the truth is a lot of them aren’t. Candy and gum can contain gelatin (made form animal carcasses and... Read More
