Easy Vegan Food Substitutes Free Printable

vegan food substitutes

One of the most common questions I get when people find out I'm vegan (and have been for almost 14 years now), is "what do you use instead of. . .(milk, cheese, eggs, etc.)?" I sometimes take for grated that I live in Vancouver and that vegan food substitutes are easy to find in even the smallest grocery and corner stores. Not only that, but there are dedicated stores like Choices and Whole Foods that have large sections in their stores for all the vegan food my heart desires. . .beyond the … [Read more...]

How to Use Solid Shampoo from LUSH

How to Use Solid Shampoo from LUSH

It's kind of crazy how much fun and how inexpensive shampoo bars from LUSH are. I find myself reaching to use them even when I also have liquid shampoo at home. Because—did I mention how much fun they are to use? The Copperhead and Montalbano shampoo bars I was sent also happen to work exceptionally well in my hair. If you think washing your hair with a shampoo bar will make it gross-feeling, like you've used a bar of soap in it—think again. Both the Copperhead and the Montalbano shampoo bars … [Read more...]
