Vegan Groceries on a Budget at Grocery Outlet

Due to a freeway fire and closure of the northbound lane for awhile, the town I live in was choked with traffic in all directions. Commuters jumped off the freeway at the first exit, drove through town and left at the last exit. It was pretty impossible to get anywhere, so , as I had […]

Daiya Pizza

Grocery Store Pizza

I love pizza.  And I can really do without cheese pizza at this point because I have found so many other fantastic things to put on top.  But every once in awhile… Daiya dairy-free pizza is my go-to for a creamy, cheez-y pizza. I can usually eat half of it in one sitting and then […]

Grocery Outlet Vegan Chow Mein

I love vegan chow mien. It is one of my favorite foods. So imagine how surprised I was to find it in a grocery store that I have never connected with vegan or organic food. Am talking about the Grocery Outlet.  When I had shopped there years before in my pre-vegan days it was a great place […]

My Vegan Costco Haul

Hadn’t been to Costco for a long time (primarily because I didn’t have a membership card – a pesky detail).  That said, I finally got a card.  Originally I went in to get some gift cards for Amy’s Drive Thru which were 20% off at Costco.  For those who are not lucky enough to live […]
