Isn’t candy just candy?

People often ask me, upon hearing that I am vegan, “what can you eat?”  Well, I usually reply with a list of my favorite foods, from coconut ice cream to seitan marsala, but I can tell that they’re usually not convinced.  That is why I want to share this link today.  Try taking a copy with you to your nearest Trader Joe’s store, and I guarantee you will be amazed at how many things you never realized were free of animal products.  It saddens me how, as a society, we have lost all concern for what we are eating.  For example, for Valentines Day, I went to a few stores, looking for chocolates or candy that I could get for my family.  Would you believe that just about everything I picked up either had milk, gelatin, or some other animal by-product?  Most people don’t even realize when they eat a marshmallow, for example, that it contains a substance derived from the collagen inside animals’ skin and bones.  Yuck!!  So, in the interest of being mindful of what you eat, check this list out.  Oh, and if you want to enjoy great vegan chocolate, check out Rescue Chocolate and Sjaaks, both of which I ordered for Valentines Day and were just perfect!!!
