1.) I would say I am borderline addicted to chips. I can pass on cupcakes and sweets all day long but as soon as a bag of chips is in my presence it is my junk food kryptonite. In my never ending quest of finding tasty chips of the vegan variety I came across Beanfield's Bean and Rice chips. They are delicious. They come in several flavors and even offer a Nacho Cheese one. My favorite so far has been the salt and pepper. But this isn't the end of my chip story, they also are packed with fiber and protein, something, you know, people are always asking vegans about. If you cannot find them at your local grocery store, no worries, they make ordering online from their site easy peasy.

2.) Natural is the new black, or is green the new black? I can never keep the new blacks straight but in any event I found a great line of products that are all natural, all vegan and all, as the owner says, leaping bunny (cruelty-free) approved. The company is North Coast Organics and they are based out of Chicago. I love all things lavender so I was immediately drawn to their, death by lavender, line, plus it has a really stellar logo on the front. So anyone looking for new natural products to add into their bathroom lineup, I would give North Coast Organics a try.
3.) Matt and Nat strike again. This company who has been producing animal free products using all recycled materials for years has great bags for fall. My personal favorite is this one that can also be worn as a cross body bag. You can find all their new products on their website.
4.) Pumpkin Pie is back this fall with a vengeance and this includes of the Native Foods variety, because what is better than Pumpkin Pie? Well, vegan pumpkin pie of course. The Native Foods fall menu is out at all locations with new items like the Southwest Chipotle Chop Salad and an old favorite, the Mad Cowboy. In fact Pumpkin Pie is free this Tuesday and Wednesday for Native Community Days with the purchase of an entree, side and drink!
5.) Some of my favorite tennis shoes I have owned have been by Saucony. My sister and I have been wearing the jazz version for years and years. They too have a vegan line, which is pretty sweet. I was stoked when I discovered the bullet is animal free! It comes in a variety of cool colors, I tend to be partial to the plain old black ones, maybe just a creature of habit, but nonetheless if you are looking for a comfortable light weight tennis shoe, Saucony has you covered!
