happy Fish Amnesty Day! "Fish Amnesty Day is a day to recognize fish as living animals with rights and in need of protection just the same as other vertebrates." Good idea I would say. You can find more information here.
I went grocery shopping this week and I thought I could share my vegan finds with you. I like to read posts like that on other blogs but please let me know if you think that this is totally boring.
So, here is what I got (and I am sorry for the quality but I only have my iPhone camera right now).
1. Veggie Life - Vegan Mayonnaise.
The funny thing is that I never even liked mayonnaise before I went vegan. But when I saw this in the grocery store I had to give it a try. Maybe it is just too exciting to resist when you find the vegan version of a product that you have never seen before. I don't know. But wow, it tastes so good. I doubt that "real" mayonnaise tastes that good. I made some potatoes with veggies last night and ate it with the mayonnaise and to be honest - I had to stop myself from eating the whole pot.
2. Veggie Aufschnitt.
I got this at Aldi. I am surprised about the big selection for vegans at Aldi, American Aldi does not have anything like that. They should really think about selling some vegan products. But yeah, this one is my favorite. I love to eat it with my Brötchen. I am German, I need my Brötchen in the morning.
3. Carrefour Chocolate Soy pudding.
Oh, I love pudding. I can't even tell you how much. I could eat a huge bowl of pudding every day. Freshly cooked pudding is the best (do you love or hate the pudding skin? I know that's a huge debate. I LOVE the pudding skin so I always use huge bowls when I make pudding to get as much skin as possible). But yeah, I found this pudding in France and it is pretty good.
In America I eat Hummus every single day and I have to say that you can find a bigger selection of hummus in American groceries stores but I was able to find this one in a German store. It is really good but I usually prefer the roasted pepper hummus.
5. Soyananda -Vegan cream cheese.
This one is soooo good. They also have one with herbs and one with tomato I think. But I like to eat the plain one with vegan "Nutella". I know a lot of people who think that's gross but I just love it. It's the perfect combination.
I have to say that I never used quinoa before but I found some recipes in a cook book and I want to give them a try. Do you have any good recipes with quinoa? Please let me know!
7. Soy Drink Vanilla.
I usually prefer almond milk but this one is pretty great too. I used it for smoothies, in my coffee and you can even eat it in mashed potatoes if you like it when they taste like vanilla. I do.
8. "Erdbäriger" Tee - Strawberry Tea.
I drink several cups of tea every day. This package has a cute hedgehog and a cute bear on it so I had to buy it. I am like a little child sometimes but I just couldn't resist. It also tastes pretty great. Strawberries are always good. I also like the pun:
Erdbeere means strawberry.
Bär means bear.
--> Erdbäriger Tee.
9. Bach flowers tea.
I got this as an extra in the natural foods store. I haven't tried it yet but tea is always good.
10. Semolina pudding (for babies).
I just love that stuff...I mean, it is not just for babies. the package says you have to be 4 months or older. Which I am. So I am allowed to eat this. I usually mix it with some fruits and agave syrup.
11. Wilmersburger - vegan cheese.
This is my favorite German vegan cheese. I got three different types: Cheddar Style, Pilze (mushrooms), Würzig (Spicy). The spicy one is my favorite. I had the cheddar style cheese for breakfast this morning and I also like it a lot. And I haven't tried the mushroom one yet but I am sure it will be good too. I am always amazed by the great selection of vegan food...it was pretty hard to find vegan/vegetarian food when I stopped eating meat but now you can find vegan products in almost every store.
Okay, I forgot to take a picture of this one.
de Rit Organics - Chocoreale Duo
As you can see, I already ate some of this. It is just too good. It's basically a mix of vegan "Nutella" and some white cream. Perfect in the mix with the cream cheese.
What did you buy on your last grocery shopping trip? What are your favorite products? Any recommendations?
Have a lovely Saturday!
