Sunday Vegan Haul Time!

Yesterday was another rainy day. Like all day rain. It's very dry here in SLC so when we have these rare rainy days it makes me very homesick for Seattle. Everything is so green and lush today so it was all worth it.
Because of my schedule I had to run into Trader Joe's in the early afternoon, and seriously it almost made me cry. I did make it out alive, but I think I left some of my sanity in the store.

Jasmine rice,bananas,potatoes,coconut oil,Kalamata olives,tofu,lemons,coconut milk, green olives,onions
Have you tried their handful of olives yet? They're sold in little pouches and they are the best green olives ever!
One thing about being in Trader Joe's when it's jam packed is that I really just stick to my list and don't bother with any impulse items! That's one way to stick to budget.

Kombucha,Epsom salts,dish soap, clearance chocolate
I also ran into Natural Grocers because they have Earthy dish soap on sale for $1.99 and I also needed more epsom salts for my achy muscles. I found the chocolove holiday bar on clearance. It's like a vegan version of Cadbury's fruit and nut bar which was a favorite of mine in my pregan days.
Bulk spices, nuts, Chia seeds and hemp seeds, parsley, white beans
Lastly I went to Smith's for cat food and bulk spices. I try to reuse the spice bags that I already have, but I forgot them, and they were out of the normal sized bags so I had to use the big bulk bags. At least I do reuse them for litter box purposes but still, ugh.
This is by far the best part of my day yesterday! It made the rain and Trader Joe's all fade away. Smith's doesn't sell Reeds kombucha, but for whatever reason they had these bottles on an amazing woohoo sale! I like Reeds kombucha, so this was a total score! The flavor is mango passion ginger which I've never had, but I'm excited to try it. Can you believe the price? Happy Saturday to me!!
When I got home, I made this delicious Greek pizza with Kalamata olives, red onion, garlic and almond feta. This was amazing! I really cannot recommend Hot for Foods almond feta enough. It is so easy to make not to mention AHMAZING!!

Hugs to all on this hopefully peaceful Sunday!


  1. Your pizza looks fantastic! I seriously cannot handle the cuteness of the kitty cuddles! Way too adorable! :)

    1. The pizza was so delicious! Kalamata olives are so delicious!
      I know, they're hugging each other in their sleep! Squee!

  2. I'm jealous of your vegan hauls LOL but in a good way of course! And that PIZZA...yummers...seriously!

    1. The pizza was one of the best I've made so far! The almond feta is too good!

  3. Ack. Crowded shops make me so anxious. Glad you made it through!

    I love how the cats and snuggling.

    1. I know, crowds are the worst. I almost left as soon as I saw how busy it was, but I forced myself to just get in and out. Like I said, it's a great way to stick to the budget and not linger and buy impulse items!
      Aren't they sweet? It kills me every time!
