Finding Those Deals, and Eating and Drinking Your Greens!
I made a nice big salad with Romaine, kale, red onion, and sweet mini peppers and tossed it all with the Just Caesar and topped it with one of the patties.
One of my tips if you're on a budget is to check every aisle, even if you don't need anything from it. Some stores like natural Grocers kind of move their sale/clearance stuff to a specific area, other stores just leave the items in their normal spot. Smith's puts stickers that say Woo Hoo on their sale stuff which is nice because they're very eye catching. About two or three weeks ago, I found a container of Treeline cashew cheese on a Woo Hoo sale for $1.99!! I love that cheese so much, but at nine dollars a container I never buy it. I've found that looking for deals at the grocery is like thrift shopping. You just have to be patient, and be somewhat flexible. Anyway, there is my budget shopping tip for the day!
Before I sign off, it's been a great week for vegan ice cream! First, Ben & Jerry has come out with two new flavors, and I saw on twitter yesterday that Breyers has secretly launched a vegan ice cream!
Here's the blurb! I see this as not only great news for ice cream loving vegans, but a step in the right direction for animals. These corporations do everything for profit, so obviously they see a demand for non dairy ice cream, and want a piece of the action. I feel like almond milk makes a really great and creamy ice cream, so I bet it will impress non vegans just like the Ben&Jerry's has. In these very dark times, it's nice to see glimmers of hope and light!
