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
