Demand for Vegan Cheese At U.S. Domino’s Locations Has Skyrocketed!

As if we needed even more proof that plant-based foods are taking over, the demand for vegan cheese at Domino’s Pizza locations within the U.S. has skyrocketed!

Domino’s locations in Australia were the first of the franchise to offer 3 specialty pizzas with plant-based cheese. These absolutely mouth-watering options include The Vegan Margherita, The Vegan Avocado Veg, and The Vegan Spicy Veg Trio. The overwhelming success of these pizzas has lead Domino’s to make these them, along with vegan cheesy garlic bread (YESSS!), permanent menu items. Vegans, animal rights activists, and dairy-free individuals now demand locations throughout the United States to start offering these incredible pizzas with vegan cheese!

By offering plant-based cheese pizzas, Domino’s will make vegan options more accessible and accepted, and has the ability to inspire other chains within the food industry to follow suit! This is a HUGE opportunity for Domino’s pizza to become the largest franchise to offer vegan pizzas! C’mon, Domino’s! Let’s make this happen!

Head on over to your social media accounts and let Domino’s know that we want vegan pizza NOW!!!

Healing Home Foods – Delicious Vegan Snacks You’re Gonna Love!

Company: Healing Home Foods

Products:

Chocolate Chip Baked Biscotti Bites

Pizza Thins Raw Crackers

Almond Butter Chunk Baked Granola

Reviews:

Super crunchy biscotti pieces with Chocolate Chips? Yup! They exist and I’m loving them! Healing Home Foods’ Chocolate Chip Biscotti Bites are not too sweet and have a wonderful oven-baked flavor, which paired perfectly with my almond milk latte. They’re made with almond flour and other plant-based ingredients, so vegans and people that avoid gluten will be able to enjoy them! A handful of these and my regular cup of coffee kept me full and running ’till lunch time!

Next up, are the amazingly delicious Pizza Thins! These crispy little crackers are bursting with Italian flavors thanks to Sun-dried Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil, and Oregano! These little guys pop with tangy tomato and they’re completely addicting! I may or may not have polished off the entire bag in one sitting (I absolutely did). You will think you’re diving into a freshly baked slice of your favorite vegan pizza! I’m in love!

Last but not least, is the Almond Butter Chunk Granola! What’s not to like about big, hearty pieces of baked oats and almond butter? This raw, gluten-free granola is subtly sweet and makes a  satisfying snack or meal. It’s made with Gluten-Free rolled oats, *sprouted almonds, *maple syrup, *almond butter, gluten-free quick oats, *maple sugar, *ground flaxseed, *coconut oil, vanilla flavor, and Himalayan crystal salt. It’s so tasty, you’d never think it was raw, vegan, OR good for you!

The Bottom Line

Healing Home Foods makes unique snacks that are vegan, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and truly delicious! If I had to choose one item from the list above to recommend, I would say definitely try out the Pizza Thins… or maybe the Biscotti Bites… or the granola. Haha, I don’t know, just try them all and let me know which one you like the best!

Thank you, Home Healing Foods, for sending me these awesome snacks to try!

The Plant Based Egg – A Gluten-Free and Vegan Egg Replacer!

If you love cookies, cakes, and all things baked, you must try The Plant Based Egg from Freely Vegan! This egg replacer eliminates eggs from your recipes and can also be used to create your own gluten-free flour blends!

About Freely Vegan:

“We’re a vegan, gluten free, top 8 allergen free company who believes in delicious, cruelty free food for everyone. We currently offer one amazing product, The Plant Based Egg!”

I’m far from an expert in the kitchen although I do enjoy trying out new vegan products! When I cook or bake, I just call it “making a mess” because that’s pretty much what it is, but when I was sent these samples of The Plant Based Egg from Deborah (the creator of Vegan Kitchen Magick and this AWESOME Chili Recipe), I was super psyched to try it out!

The package includes a little chart that tells you how much of the egg replacer and plant based milk to use to replace the eggs in your recipe. Very useful! As you can see from the ingredient list, this product only contains a few fully vegan and gluten-free ingredients.

I have actually tried baking gluten-free muffins in the past, but they turned out way too chewy and that’s where my adventures in gluten-free baking ended. So, with a newly found sense of confidence, I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies! I followed this Freely Vegan recipe using almond milk and added some chopped almonds and a pinch of cinnamon.

DRUM ROLLLLLLLL, PLEASE!

They turned out SO good! These chocolate chip cookies were exactly what I was hoping for! They were the perfect density and chewiness (nothing like the horrific muffins I tried in the past) and got slightly crispy on the edges, which is just how I like them! No one would ever guess that they were both vegan and gluten-free! Mission accomplished!

The Bottom Line

I love independent companies that create innovative vegan products. It is so important to support these companies to ensure that the future is vegan! The Plant Based Egg will save you time in the kitchen and will allow vegans and/or gluten-free individuals to easily create delicious baked goods!

The Freely Vegan website has TONS of  recipes that I can’t wait to try out! Their brownies and pancakes are next on my list!

There’s no reason to miss out on brownies, cookies, pancakes and other fantastic snacks and other goodies. Just give The Plant Based Egg a try!

Dr. Brite Berrylicious and Mint Chip Natural Toothpaste… and Special Discount Link

If you’ve stopped by my blog before, you probably know that I’m a superfan of Dr. Brite’s toothpastes and teeth whiteners! Their products are vegan and cruelty-free (of course), flouride-free, Non-GMO, and Gluten-free. It’s worth adding that they have AWESOME flavors that you won’t find anywhere else!

If you want to check out some of their newly released spring line, check out my review of their Coco Chai Organic Coconut Oil Whitening Toothpaste, Get Brite Whitening Pen, Stay Brite Natural Teeth Whitening Pen, and their Brite and Fresh Breath Freshener, here!

Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly love Dr. Brite’s products anymore… look what arrived in my mailbox! Their new Berrylicious Natural Vitamin C Toothpaste and Mint Chip Natural Antioxidant Whitening Toothpaste do NOT disappoint!

If you like strawberries and clean teeth, you will absolutely love the Berrylicious Natural Vitamin C Toothpaste! The berry flavor is definitely there, but not overpowering in anyway. As you brush, it foams slightly (there is NO need for chemical-filled foaming toothpaste for a clean, healthy smile) and gives your teeth and mouth a fresh, thoroughly cleaned feeling. I love this stuff and it is a great change from typical mint toothpaste.

The Mint Chip Natural Antioxidant Whitening Toothpaste is probably the most amazing toothpaste I have ever tried. It gives you a kick of refreshing mint along with delicious chocolate flavor and the same clean, healthy feeling as their other toothpastes. You might be confused when you use this… are you brushing your teeth or eating dessert? You might not be able to tell! 😉

If you’re looking for fantastic quality products that are fun, effective, vegan and cruelty-free, you can’t go wrong with Dr. Brite! These toothpastes and teeth whiteners have been a part of my daily routine for months now and my smile has never looked so good!

Product: Energy… boing™ Natural Energy Supplement

Review: 

If you’re new here, Hi, Hey there, Hello! I’m Julie and I’m a coffee addict. I love being fully caffeinated at all times and if I’m not, something is wrong, terribly wrong.

As much as I love and appreciate my daily coffees, I know that they are not the healthiest option and that they do not love me back. I’ve tried many times in the past to give up my beloved almond milk lattes and soy cold brews, but I just go crawling back!

I’m happy to introduce to you BioTerra Herbs Energy… boing Natural Energy Supplement! These little vegan capsules are plant-based and made to boost energy without stimulants.

Let’s be honest, I had my doubts but I’m surprised to say that these bad boys did, in fact, enhance my energy! Asian Ginseng has been used forever to increase energy, improve concentration, boost the immune system and promote overall wellbeing. Sign me up!

It said on the packaging to take 2 capsules after a meal, 1x per day, for 7 days to feel the effects. In all honesty, I did not give up my coffee for the first few days. I shouted to the Universe that someone will have to pry my Starbucks cup out of my cold, dead hands for me to give it up. However, after day 4 or 5 I did notice that I was thinking more clearly after waking up in the mornings which is kind of a big deal. (To put this into perspective, I previously tried to open my car door with my house key and have worn 2 different shoes to work).

I noticed that I just had more pep in my step… but not in a I-just-took- an-illegal-substance kind of way. I didn’t feel rundown into the ground by mid-afternoon and I have generally gotten more stuff done.

The Bottom Line: I generally feel better when taking these supplements! I certainly have more energy but I think most of all, I really love how my concentration has improved and that there is no jitters, no weird coffee sweats, and no “crash” in energy levels. I’m a fan and will definitely continue to use these supplements! Head on over to BioTerra Herbs’ website to check out all of the natural, vegan supplements that they have to offer!

Thank you, BioTerra Herbs, for sending me this sample to review!

*This product was sent to me for free. As always, my reviews are authentic and genuine. All thoughts and ideas are my own.

Happy Mother’s Day to All!

This Mother’s Day, I ask you to not only think about your own mom, but to think of all the mom’s on this planet that love their children. Whether you’re taking your mom out to brunch, you haven’t seen your mom in awhile, or even if they are no longer living, there is most certainly and undeniably a natural bond between mothers and their babies.

blog3

This Mother’s Day, consider the grieving diary cow that had her calf stolen from her only moments after given birth. Think of the mother goat that was slaughtered for meat and didn’t get to see her babies grow up. Think of the mother sheep that witnesses her children’s wool being ripped from their skin… the mother pig that watches her piglets waste away in filthy cages or get smashed against concrete for being “too small.” Think of the baby chickens that will miss out on a life with their mom and are ground up alive only seconds after being born.

blog4

All Mother’s love their children. All beings want and deserve to be loved. A cow, a pig, a chicken, a deer… they are no different than us.

This Mother’s Day, please open your heart and mind and consider going vegan. Feel free to check out my Instagram @VeganTreasureHunter or send me an email at Vegantreasurehunter@gmail.com if you’d like some help! You can also check out my Resources page to learn more!

Dreamy Sky and Earth Wall Art

Casual Messenger Bag (Blue)

Retro Floral Design Wallet (Green)

Reviews:

 

To kick off this review, I’m starting with the item that just so happens to be one of my favorite art pieces of all time! The Dreamy Sky and Earth Wall Art is a stunning print on canvas that I could stare at for hours! The vibrant magenta and purple hues of the flowering fields pop against the dreamy, cloudy sky! I love art that gives you the ability to add your own personal flair to it. This item comes with 5 individual canvases that you can arrange as you see in the picture or any way you like! This is definitely a conversation piece that brings the beauty of nature into your home!

Next up, is the Casual Messenger Bag (Blue) by Amelie Galanti. This bag is perfect for just about every outfit and is very high quality. The faux leather has a glossy finish and the texture of actual leather. It has dark chrome hardware and multiple pockets and compartments to fit all of your belongings! It comes with a shoulder strap and a long cross-body strap so it can be styled to meet your needs. This bag is built to last, made with animal-friendly materials, and is the perfect everyday accessory!

Last up, is the Retro Floral Design Wallet (Green) that may just be the cutest wallet on the planet! This tri-fold wallet features an adorable, vintage-inspired floral pattern and high quality faux leather-esque material. It is large enough to fit all of your cards, bills, coins, and even your cell phone. This could even double as a clutch to add some springtime flair to your outfit! The inside is a pretty pink faux leather material with a sateen floral material inside the pockets. If you love vintage style, vegan accessories, or are just looking for a new item for the warmer weather, this wallet is it!

The Bottom Line

Rainbowgrove Dreams is a fabulous shop that offers special items that are anything but ordinary! The materials used are vegan and made to mirror the beauty of nature and the world around us. These items are gorgeous and of excellent quality, but most of all, they do not use leather and they are used to support fantastic organizations that make the world a better place for everyone.

PURITY Cleansing Water

WILD ROSE Complexion Mist

RESTORE Age-Defying Facial Serum

Reviews:

If you’re new to my blog… Hello! Thanks for stopping by!  If not, you probably know that I review a lot of skincare. A LOT. 

That’s why I am thrilled to share my review of O.W.L.’s products with you because they are truly special and exceptional!!! 

Organics With Love PURITY Cleansing Water

The PURITY Cleansing Water gently removes your makeup without over-drying your skin. It has a fresh, invigorating herbal scent. Rose water, tea tree, and lavender cleanse and nourish the skin while removing the day’s makeup, sweat, oil, etc. Of course, the more make up you wear, the more product you will need to use. I have been a fan of the double cleansing method for a long time to make sure that my skin is super clean. If I had a full face of make up, I liked using this cleansing water after using a makeup wipe to remove everything that was left behind (you’d be shocked how much makeup is left on your skin if you only cleanse once!). I definitely could have only used this cleanser to get a clean face but I stick to my double cleansing most of the time!

Wild Rose Complexion Mist

The WILD ROSE Complexion Mist is a fantastic way to quickly hydrate your skin before applying a facial oil, serum, or moisturizer. Rose water, aloe, witch hazel, and hibiscus flower give your face a nice dose of hydration that can be used whenever your skin needs a little pick-me-up! As part of your daily skincare routine, you can apply 3-4 sprays on your face. When your skin is still damp, you apply the facial oil (discussed below) to really seal the moisture into your skin. This technique is the absolute best way to get the most our of your skincare products!

RESTORE Facial Serum from organicswithlove.com

RESTORE Facial Serum – Picture from organicswithlove.com

The RESTORE Age-Defying Facial Serum is so luxurious! From its rosy pink hue to it’s gorgeous floral scent, this facial oil is sure to become you favorite! It feels luxurious because it truly is luxurious! This serum is packed with skin-loving ingredients like Cranberry Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Helichrysum Oil, Rose Damascena Oil, and Carrot Seed Oil. All of these ingredients combine to moisturize, fight signs of aging, slow down collagen destruction, repair free radical and environmental damage, purify the skin, reduce discoloration and scarring, and improve elasticity and firmness! What more could you possibly want?

At first, I was a little skeptical when it came to applying this facial oil with a Rose Quartz tumbled stone, as the instructions suggest. I have never used anything like this before… I mean, why can’t I just apply the oil with my fingers like I always do? (of course, you can apply it will your fingers if you want to!)

Oh, how wrong I was! Applying this facial oil with Rose Quartz is just so enjoyable! Gliding the cool stone on my face felt so refreshing and relaxing and I truly looked forward to applying my skincare at the end of a long day! Can you really say that with a straight face about your current skin care? I know I couldn’t before! 

This serum really made my skin look hydrated and radiant! My cheeks were noticeable less red and I did not break out from this what-so-ever. Yay! I only needed around 5 small drops to cover my entire face and it made my skin look fresh and dewy. I had no problem applying my make up on top on it. This stuff is amazing and stole my heart!

The Bottom Line

When you use O.W.L. products, you really feel like you’re using something special and that’s because you are! The ingredients are so nourishing that your skin will absolutely glow! The packaging is sleek and gorgeous and the scents are so natural and fresh! I truly enjoy this line of products from Organics With Love and highly recommend them to anyone that loves high quality skin care that is vegan, cruelty-free and delivers results!

Dr. Brite’s New Spring Line – Launching April 10th!

Company: Dr. Brite

Screen Shot 2018-04-01 at 1.54.42 PM

I’ve been a fan of Dr. Brite products for quite some time… their products are healthy, work wonderfully, and of course, they are vegan and cruelty-free! That’s why I was so thrilled to get to try out these brand new products that are launching on April 10th!

First up, is the Coco Chai Natural Organic Coconut Whitening Toothpaste. Yup, you read that correctly! This toothpaste is Coconut Chai flavored! Dr. Brite describes this to be “a warm and cozy cinnamon, cardamom, and coconut creation inspired by chai lattes.” Ummm… sign me up!

This toothpaste really does taste like a delicious chai latte from Starbucks, yum! It makes your teeth look and feel nice and clean. This toothpaste does not foam up like traditional toothpastes… and that’s a good thing. Colgate, Crest, etc. are filled with nasty ingredients that make you think you are getting a nice, healthy smile but they are actually filled with crazy chemicals that nobody needs. After just a few uses of using this Coco Chai toothpaste, not only did my mouth look and feel clean and healthy, but I did notice that my teeth were also looking whiter! Love it!

Next, is the Brite & Fresh Breath Freshener with Activated Charcoal. This spray is “formulated with a fantastic blend of organic essential oils that help soothe gums and freshen breath instantly with just a couple of spritzes.” Well, that description is spot-on! With just 2 sprays, my breath was fresh and my mouth felt clean for quite a long time! The conveniently sized bottle is perfect for throwing into your purse or keeping in your car for when you stop by Chipotle for lunch and have a meeting right after. Aloe, peppermint, menthol, clove, holy basil, organic coconut activated charcoal really get the job done, naturally!

Next up, are the Get Brite Brilliant Teeth Whitening Pen and the Stay Brite Natural Teeth Whitening Pen. The Get Brite pen delivers “fast results that can help people achieve teeth that are 2 shades whiter in 2 days.” This claim is absolutely correct!  Food-grade hydrogen peroxide and organic coconut oil gently whiten your teeth to give you a bright, radiant smile! It has a minty flavor and there is no need to rinse it off, so it is perfect to use just about anywhere or anytime! I liked to use this in the morning and right before bed, buy hey, its up to you!

The Stay Brite Pen “helps maintain the appearance of pearly whites by preventing daily stains.” Now that my teeth are looking fantastic, I really love that this pen helps to  prevent stains. This pen can also be used anywhere, anytime but this one is great to take with you. You know you’re going to have something that could potentially stain your teeth at some point during your day. Just stick this pen in your bag, pocket, wherever, to help keep your movie star smile!

The Bottom Line

I love Dr. Brite’s products! The newCoco Chai Natural Organic Coconut Whitening Toothpaste is a must try for all Chai Latte lovers! The Brite & Fresh Breath Freshener with Activated Charcoal is fantastic way to freshen your breathe while you’re on the go. The Get Brite Brilliant Teeth Whitening Pen delivers fantastic results quickly and safely (White Strips, who?!) and the Stay Brite Natural Teeth Whitening Pen is a quick and simple way to keep your teeth looking gorgeous all the time!

I HIGHLY recommend picking up these products when they are launched on April 10th!

Thank you, Dr. Brite, for sending me these products to review!
