My 5 Favorite Things Right Now.

And They’re Vegan, Wohoo!

Alright. So, I’m not much for capitalism. But we live in it and sometimes we have to buy stuff. Here are some of my favorite things to buy right now.

1) Vegan Queso

I wanted to write this blog mainly to talk about vegan queso made by a company called Food For Lovers. I knew nothing about it until Spencer’s Market offered it as a deal (they sell discounted produce). Anyway, this stuff has no fat, no soy, no nuts, no dairy, no cholesterol.

Imitation cheese without even any fat!

Most people would probably imagine it tasting like dry dog food, but I’m telling you all it’s delicious. Maybe it’s because I haven’t had cheese in so long, but I don’t think that’s it. I think even cheese lovers would enjoy eating this.

It’s junk food without ALL the junk.

I love being vegan.

(While drunk I fried up a potato and dumped queso on it (cuz I was out of chips) soooo freaking good!)

2) Sir Richard’s Condoms

Speaking of vegan. If you’re one to go out and have protected safer sex, Sir Richard’s condoms are best. Not only do they contain no casein (a milk protein) but for every condom you buy they donate one to a developing country. So people all around the world can have fun and be STD-free too! They also recently developed a mail-order system, where you can have as many Sir Richard’s Condoms delivered to your door every month as you (think you) need. How convenient. How sexy.

3) Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap

I know all of you hippies have been using this soap for years, but I just got turned onto it a couple of months ago. And it really is magic. Fair-trade, never tested on animals, vegan, contained in a recycled bottled. I have the lavender scent and I like to follow the tip on the bottle and dump a bit on a hot towel and just lay it over my face. It feels (and smells) so good.

I saw there was a documentary on this soap company available on netflix, has anyone watched it? Is it worth it? Feel a little lame watching a documentary about soap…but perhaps it’s better than it sounds? 

4) Eco-Lips Bee Free Chapstick

Most chapstick is made with beeswax, and yo homedogs the bees are in some trouble. No point in adding to the issue when bee-free chapstick exists.


5) PBR

I love being kind to my environment, but sometimes a girl just has to get her drink on. And when I do, it’s usually with a good reliable Pabst Blue Ribbon. Yeah, maybe it’s the beer of choice for every-day hipsters, but even though they may not have good taste in eyewear (I mean seriously, what’s up with those glasses), they have good taste in cheap beer.
