1) Phoney Baloney’s Coconut Bacon – The most delicious and healthiest mock bacon I’ve ever had. Hands down, the thing that tastes the closest to bacon I’ve tasted in my 12 years of being a vegetarian. Even my boyfriend agreed that the taste was pretty darn close. I found this amazing snack at Fiesta Farms in Toronto. It’s vegan and also gluten free. It’s perfect on salads, quinoa, sandwiches, burgers, etc. Adds crunch and flavor!
2) Filsinger’s Organic Apple Butter – I also found this product at Fiesta Farms in Toronto (hands down the raddest grocery store in the city for organic products!). Whenever I see apple butter, it automatically reminds me of Stowe, Vermont and Cold Hollow Cider Mill, the cutest and yummiest local apple product producer. My mom would always buy us apple butter for our toast in the morning when we’d stop in Stowe. Though the taste isn’t exactly the same, it’s just as delicious! Not only is it great on toast, it’s also perfect with yogurt, fruit or just on its own!
3) Shasha Co. Spelt Lemon Snaps – Picked these up the other day at Metro and they’ve become a great dessert that isn’t too sweet or that isn’t filled with bad ingredients. They’re an all organic, vegan, non-gmo snack. Shasha Co. have what seems to be a great line of organic snacks, breads and baked goods. I’m excited to try more of their tasty treats in the future!
