- Straw Propeller Gourmet Muesli: These individually packaged, all-vegan muesli cups are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts or mid-day work snacks. Try the Apple Cranberry flavor (buckwheat, oats, apples, cranberries, almonds, pumpkin seeds) or the original (buckwheat, oats, raisins, dates, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, flax seed). Serve with soy yogurt or non-dairy milk for a nutty autumn treat.

2. ApRi Coffee Sack Backpacks: Looking for an awesome vegan backpack for back to school? Look no further than April and Richer, a Rhode Island seamstress/seamster duo who created these coffee sack backpacks. Handmade from canvas and burlap (acquired from local coffee shops), these 18x12-inch packs are lightweight, functional and full of love. They also make wallets, belts and tote bags.

3. Vegan Grub Hub: Madison, WI is changing the game this month with their new online menu guide, MadisonVegan.com. Spearheaded by the Alliance for Animals and the Environment, the new website allows you to search all the vegan-friendly restaurants in the city by neighborhood or type of cuisine. The search will tell you the restaurant’s basic info as well as which specific items are vegan. Not bad for the nation’s dairy capital!

4. Portobello Po’Boy at Native Foods: End the week on a good note at your local Native Foods, where this special sandwich will be served Sept. 20th -22nd. It’s a crispy baguette stacked with battered mushrooms, chipotle remoulade sauce and crunchy pickle chips, served with lemon wedges and a side of old bayou fries. Mmmmmm.
5. Tiki Crafts Slouchy Hats: Fall is my favorite season, not only for the colorful trees and the warm cuisine but also for the fashion. It’s time for tall boots, soft sweaters and light hats before the snow storms start. But where to find it vegan? Try Tiki Fiber Crafts, available on Etsy. The hats are made of acrylic yarn and are totally stylish (they also look pretty warm).
