Damn, sometimes I hate Monday mornings.  It’s not Monday’s fault really, it’s more that I feel like the weekends should be three days long.  Alas, it’s not the case and so poor Monday gets a bad rap.  But I’m about to help out the dreaded Monday, I’m gonna give you all kinds of vegan gossip-y stuff every Monday- the kind of goods you can read with your juice, smoothie or coffee.  Now you can look forward to Mondays!  I know, I’m excited too :)

Obsessed on the web:

Vegan Good Things

Vegan Good Things – A site for food, lifestyle, and all things good & vegan is my latest blog obsession.  You know how sometimes the pictures on a website aren’t the greatest?  And how sometimes, when that happens, the things in the pictures look bad- even if they weren’t in real life?  Right, what I’m saying is that lovely pictures are a must for a good website.  And Leinana, author of Vegan Good Things, uses pictures that are gorgeous.  I like that, a lot.  I also love her cocker spaniel, Bella- and I’m not a cocker spaniel lover.  I will say that, hands down, Bella is the cutest cocker spaniel I’ve ever seen.  Who could resist a puppy with a whole birfday treat in their mouf?  Not me!  I love the food porn, the recipes, the reviews, and the goodness that is Leinana’s vegan site.  You should go and check it out, once you’re done drooling over the luscious pictures– you can come back and thank me.

Obsessed on the street:

Non-vegan Puma Kola

Puma Kola: The Kola that isn't vegan

I live close to Chrissie Hynde’s restaurant, The Vegiterranean.  This is an establishment right up my alley, it’s all vegan.  Well, that’s what the website says anyway.  I’ve been to Vegiterranean many times, in the past, and delighted in the fact that I could order anything- anything and it would be vegan.  And I did.  I’ve eaten pizzas, pastas, and salads- soups, burgers, and sandwiches- cakes, cookies, and have drunk all manners of beverages.  And because it’s a vegan restaurant, I can be adventurous and try anything- the freedom of choice on the menu is one of Vegiterranean’s most intoxicating attributes.  It lures you in and your comforted by the warm fuzzy feeling you get by reading the word vegan over and over again on the menu.  The siren’s song of vegan is so loud that you never think to even check the ingredient list on the menu to ensure that it is indeed vegan.  But apparently I should have, apparently I needed to.  On my last visit to the Vegiterranean I ordered a Puma Kola (I uh, often order beverages simply for the name.  Puma Kola, come on- you’d order it too.)  The funny thing about Puma Kola, it’s not vegan.  It says right there on the bottle (and on their website), under ingredients, “honey.”  Honey, darlings, isn’t vegan.  No, no- I’m not gonna argue- bees are insects.  Therefore, honey = not vegan.  Makes me wonder what other non vegan ingredients are in their food.

Obsessed in the store:

Uncle Eddies Vegan Cookies

Uncle Eddie brings his cookie to the playground - and wins mucho friends.

Birthdays are the best!  For me it means cake, candles, family, fun, and cake.  Did I mention cake?  I love cake.  But, since I’m vegan, it’s not always as easy to find a vegan cake for me to have (unless I make it myself), unless I go out to eat.  This year I spent my birthday in a very low-key kind of way and it couldn’t have been more relaxing.  Instead of birthday cake, a bag of Uncle Eddies Vegan Cookies was offered up.  I have seen this cookies before at my local health food store, so I was thrilled to test them out.  And OH EM GEE, they are GOOD!  First, Uncle Eddie makes his cookies an appropriate serving size- you know, a normal size cookie.  I love that.  I am tired of these companies (you know who you are out there, I won’t mention any names) making these GIANT cookies and saying that they are actually two servings per cookie.  No one, I repeat, no one will break a cookie in half and only eat one half.  Inevitably, the whole cookie is eaten and double the fat, calories, carbs, and sugars get consumed.  Not Uncle Eddie though, his cookies are the perfect size.  And they are the perfect sweetness- not too much, not too little.  I love them so much in fact, these are my newest favorite vegan cookie.  I had two of his cookies for my birthday and my sweet tooth was completely happy- as was my rump since these bad boys are only 130 calories per cookie.  Low calorie, high taste- yes, I will definitely be buying these again!  Uncle Eddie, you make me swoon!
