    Turns out Hellman's vegan mayo is indistinguishable from real mayo, so thats one more easy switch.

    If you're not making overnight oats and giving yourself a nutritious treat while saving time every morning, it's time to step up your game.

    This is where the fun begins

    Acme near me started carrying a couple different brands of oat milk recently. I’m really excited to get into that scene

    The amount of vegan brownies I have eaten the past 2 days has certainly bordered on harmful lol

    Haven’t been on the site as much due to work and life in general. I picked up this book recently and started making a lot of my shit from scratch and re-using stuff to minimize waste. Making my own milk has been sick. Trying to get my self to a point that when I buy my house I can grow a lot of what I eat and kinda minimize what I need from a grocery store. Here’s the link to the book that’s gotten my gears turning.

    It's really annoying when you tell a restaurant you don't want the sauce and they still put it in

    I know Nike isn’t a perfect company, but they list their materials on each shoe on their website. A lot of their lines don’t use animal products, actually. I forget the name of their imitation leather though. The Nike air max line, the Nike frees, and many others are animal free.

    I ordered a vegan burger recently that came with a side salad that had bacon bits in it. Realllllly annoying.

    Full disclosure: I'm not really a vegan. As of October, I don't eat meat or dairy products, but I do eat fish and honey. Eggs, too, but only if I know where they're from; fortunately, a small farm near me has a delivery service.

    On another related note, I bought a beer the other day that I loved. After some research, it turns out that it's made with lactose even though they don't list it on the label (apparently because it's not considered an allergen, they don't have to mention ti). I took the opportunity this afternoon to call that out in my store's newsletter because I think that's shitty. Especially because the brewery (Zero Gravity) is based in Burlington, VT, which like...probably has a wholeeeee lotta vegans.

    For some piece of mind/fun fact, some brands of bacon bits contain no pork/animal products, so they’re (unintentionally?) vegan.

    Lol ya, at least McCormick and Betty Crocker brands were last I knew. They’re basically just TVP and liquid smoke.
