I already have a favorite!

Ok, let the vegan begin! In order to prepare for the next month or two I did my recipe and food research. I planned out meals, wrote out recipes and made my grocery list! It really wasn't all that hard to buy vegan at my local store! The only thing I am disappointed in was the "cheese" wanna be stuff. NOTHING! Even the so called "veggie shreds and slices" have dairy in them. Nice. So tomorrow I am off to a local specialty store in search of a vegan "cheese". One thing I have looked into is honey. I use raw honey like it's my job and I wasn't sure I was prepared to give that up. The health benefits are amazing! After researching a little bit I have found that some vegans don't use it for cruelty purposes and some vegans use it because they don't think it hurts the bee. Well, don't crucify me, but I could care less about that nasty stinging bee. So, I made an executive decision. I WILL continue to use raw honey!
Now, about my new fav... I found this at Meijer. It was 3 for $5.00! Not bad!!! This is Olivio USDA certified organic coconut spread. Don't freak out yet! I use a lot of coconut oil already, so this caught my eye. It is Non- Hydrogenated, dairy free, gluten free, soy free, organic, non-GMO and vegan! Sounds gross maybe, but it is AWESOME! Even my coconut hatin' hubby loved it! I made him a bagel and used this instead of butter and he said he never would have known had I not told him! That my friends, is a testimony lol! I promise I will post recipes, but I was so excited about this find I had to share it!
