All The Hauls

Hey everyone! I'm just popping in today with a few hauls to show you. I feel like the title makes it seem like there are tons and tons of hauls when in reality it's just two... but they are two good ones! At least I think so ;) I was able to get my hands on some things I've been looking for and haven't been able to find and I'm quite excited about it. The first haul is from Whole Foods and the second small haul is from Food Fight Grocery!

First up, the Whole Foods haul:

I just got a little bit of produce while I was there. I got some baby bok choy, butter lettuce, a head of kale for juice (because we all know I'm not really into the kale) and some tiny little honeycrisp apples. Normally they are giant but these were quite small.

This is the rest of the Whole Foods Haul. I got a few Luna Bars, two So Delicious Greek Yogurts to try (chocolate and plain), toasted sesame seeds, the So Delicious Cashew Ice Cream in Chocolate Cookies n Cream (!!!!!), Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (for some reason the Whole Foods brand is my favorite), low sodium tamari, Kevita Strawberry Coconut probiotic drink (they barely had any flavors there... boo!! I'm trying this on a recommendation from Vegan Peace and I'm excited!!) and some Slow Roasted Chick'n from Tofurkey because why not.

So the next little haul is from the Food Fight Grocery website!! Food Fight Grocery is an all vegan grocery store in Portland and I would love to visit someday!

On the far left you'll see the Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg!!! I have been trying to get my hands on this forever and it has always been sold out everywhere! After checking the website a few days earlier (and naturally it was sold out) I decided to check back again and saw they were available and I wasted no time! In order to make the shipping cost worth it (the one downside to ordering is that the shipping is quite hefty... it cost me about $12 to ship these three items) I added Upton's Naturals Bar-B-Que Jackfruit (I'm not even a fan of BBQ flavored anything but I've heard so many good reviews about it!) and some Vegan Pecan Toffee because it's Pecan Toffee.

I have not tried any of these products yet but will definitely let you know what I think of everything! I have lots of dishes planned for the vegan egg and I will probably do a full review post on it where I show you the different ways I used it and my overall thoughts on it. It will probably be in a few weeks because I don't particularly want to eat it every day for a week but hopefully it'll be sooner rather than later.

And just because I just planned for next week here is my spread! I am in love with this sticker kit and I saved it for this week because it is my mom's birthday week and I wanted to use a special kit for a special week :)

So just as a little side note I finally watched Blackfish last night...  and I basically cried for an hour and a half. I knew it was going to be upsetting but it was just heartbreaking. It is very difficult to watch but I definitely recommend it. It really pulls the curtains back on how terrible these places are for the animals. I know that Seaworld has definitely gotten some backlash because of it but I don't really understand how people don't connect the dots and see that this is how the animals are treated in zoos, aquariums and circuses as well. I know Seaworld announced that they are going to make some changes and stop breeding the whales and phasing out the shows but I guess I'll just believe it when I see it. Rant over I guess. 

Sorry to end on a bummer but that's all I've got for you today. If I can get my act together I will try very hard to get some food posts up soon. I am definitely looking forward to trying all of the new products too and definitely looking forward to reviewing the vegan egg for you guys! I feel like I'm the last one to try it and review it but it has been so hard to get my hands on it!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend <3


  1. Earlier in the week I saw an article detailing how the Detriot Zoo was creating the largest habitat for penguins. Rightfully so, one commenter said it was the second largest, as the largest habit is in nature! I'm not sure I could handle that movie, but I hope that it's message spreads!

    Are you finding that calendar was a good investment? I'm good at planning, just not good about checking back on my plan. Ha ha!

    I look forward to your thoughts on the vegan egg, jackfruit, and Chik'n - I haven't tried a single one!

    1. I definitely agree and hope the message spreads. Animals should not have to suffer for our entertainment.

      OMG the planner is the best purchase I've ever made. I just bought a Happy Planner on deep discount (I think the final price was like $15) to dedicate to health/fitness/nutrition. I am very excited about it!

      I'm looking forward to trying everything!

  2. Ohh, I hope you like the Kevita! No globbies I promise! I really liked the Tofurky chick'n. I thought it was a fun little treat. I can't wait to hear what you think of the VeganEgg! I haven't been able to find it myself!
    I commend you for watching Blackfish. I really don't have the courage to watch it. I hope SeaWorld meant it when they said they were not going to breed whales anymore.
    Oh, I also forgot to say I can't wait to hear about the chocolate cookies and cream So Delicious! I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for chocolate cookies and cream!

    1. I really like the kevita!! It is a little more fizzy and a little more sharp of a taste than I was expecting but in a very pleasant way! I am going to continue my hunt for the citrus flavor and I also think the tangerine sounds delicious! I tried the ice cream and it was AMAZING!!!

      I am with you, I hope Seaworld stands by what they have announced lately. Although I don't trust them at all so I guess we'll see.

  3. I forgot about the Cashew Milk Ice Cream! why did you have to remind me?!

    Thanks for the info on Food Fight Grocery. I will research if they ship here because I want to try the vegan egg too.

    I commend you for watching Blackfish. It is hard enough to read about it.

    Thanks for posting. I hope you have the vegan egg review up soon.

    1. Ahhh sorry!! I know you don't want to keep a ton of appliances but I think that you would get so much use out of an ice cream maker!

      I hope they do ship there! I imagine it would be VERY expensive but if they don't or if it is too expensive to ship just let me know and I'll order some for you and ship it to you.

      It took a long time for me to build up the courage to do it and as difficult as it was I'm glad I did it.

      Thanks! I'm going to start playing around with the vegan egg soon!

    2. That is so sweet of you to offer to ship to me. I am thinking while the Mr. is in virginia, I may use him to ship stuff down here that I have mailed to Virginia. Thank you though.
