English Muffins: Not the most amazing thing in the world, but will totally scratch that itch if what you are craving is english muffins (even has nooks and crannies). I eat these with homemade cream cheese.
Hearty Wholegrain Bread Mix: This mix by bob’s red mill is easy to make and the bread is full of flavor. Great served with soup and a salad.
Rice Tortillas: These are a bit crumbly, but oh so tasty.
EnviroKids: Gorilla Munch (a better version of kix), Amazon Flakes (a better version of frosted flakes), and Koala Krisps (coco flavored rice cereal).
Zukay live foods (salad dressing): I recently met the owner of this company and this experienced changed my life. Or, at least the way I eat salads;) I often tire of making my own salad dressing and thats when I wish there was a tasty, healthy, store bought option; and tada, there is! These dressings all taste excellent, have incredible ingredients, and are even cultured – who could ask for more?
Coconut Aminos: Otherwise known as soy-free soy sauce! What? I know, it’s really too good to be true… Except, here it is!
So Delicious Coconut Yogurt: yogurt that doesn’t taste like medicine! This yogurt comes in a whole host of flavors. I do not like the vanilla, raspberry, or passion mango (although I do know some people who do). But I am in love with the blueberry flavor. I am also using the plain in all sorts of recipes, starting with mango lassies:D A reader commented that they do not like the greek flavor, but I have yet to try it. I have also tried a rice yogurt but to me it tasted like medicine.
Kite-Hill Cheese: Oh my god. Cheese that tastes like cheese. Made from real ingredients (nuts), that are healthy for you. Yes, it is crazy expensive. If you can afford it, it is worth it. The downside? It seems to only be available at Whole Foods and is often out of stock.
Treeline Cheese: This cheese is a nice go-to if you want an herby cheese spread. If you are looking for a hard cheese, their cracked pepper hard cashew is nice as well.
Daiya Cheese: Ladies, gentleman, and variations thereof, we have cheese. The first soy-free vegan cheese I have tasted that does not taste like feet, can we get a standing ovation? Sadly, I have to admit there is a chemical aftertaste and thus I still prefer home-made cheeses. Still, when I want a melty, traditional acting cheese, Daiya is my go to.
Macro-Bars: My favorite is the “protein pleasure”, but I have also tried and liked the cashew butter and the coconut granola.
Two Degrees: I’m in love with their Chocolate Peanut flavor and their Apple Pecan flavor is also quite good.
Larabars: Honestly I don’t love these – they taste too much like dates to me, but they are very popular so I thought I would list them here.
FoodShouldTasteGood: A variety of different flavored chips – my favorites are olive and sweet potato. Be careful, not all of them are gluten free.
Rice Chips: These chips have lots of flavor and I think most if not all are gluten free, but watch out because some aren’t vegan! My all time favorite chip now is there wasabi flavor.
Inka Plantain Chips: These are addictive, but filling.
Maya Kaimal Sweet Chili Chickpea Chips: mmmm I can’t stop eating them.
Tings: the vegan version of cheese doodles. These are a little intense for me, ultimately I feel too greasy after eating them, but a great junk food option.
Sunshine Burgers: finally a gluten-free, soy-free, veggie burger!
Bahama Burgers: I haven’t tried these yet, but they are on my list!
Purely Decadent Ice Cream: delicious ice cream made from coconut milk! The vanilla, chocolate, and coconut are all soy-free, gluten-free flavors. I’ve tried and love the vanilla and chocolate. In addition to being delicious and cruelty free, the ice cream is made with agave nectar instead of sugar, so it doesn’t spike your blood sugar levels! I have yet to try coconut bliss brand, which is similar but has different flavors. I’ve heard their ice cream is also excellent.
Equal Exchange Dark Chocolate: Incredibly smooth.
Alter Eco Fair Trade Dark Chocolate: Best when I want an ultra dark and chunky chocolate experience.
Art Bars: The coconut and quinoa crisp flavors are most excellent.
Enjoy Life: This company has both dark and vegan milk chocolate bars that sort of remind me of Hershey’s.
Sift Bakery: These cookies will rock your world!
Harmless Harvest: This coconut water actually tastes exactly like coconut water, amazing!
Gluten Free Pantry chocolate chip cookie and cake mix: I used oil instead of butter and flax seeds with water instead of eggs and these cookies still came out tasting great! Even my friends who are not vegan or gluten-free liked them.
Mochi: a quick and easy breakfast or second diner type snack. Mochi is sold in the perishables department of natural food stores. To make you cut a row into 1 inch squares and bake in the oven, or toaster oven, for 10min. or until puffy. Serve with nut butter or jelly. These taste similar to bagels. My favorite kind is the cinnamon raison. Stay away from original, I hear it tastes pretty aweful. The garlic flavored is decent.
Soy Free Earth Balance: According to my non-vegan family it really is better than butter!
South River Miso: This company sells a number of seemingly soy free miso products. I am currently working my way through an adzuki bean miso and plan to try their chick pea miso next. I say seemingly soy free because I don’t know if there is soy in koji culture. However, this food has not made me sick and that works for me:)
Vegenaise: Finally Follow Your Heart has made a gluten free, soy free, vegan mayonnaise that tastes way better than the “real stuff”! Check it out, it will change your sandwich experience.
Healing Home Foods Raw Crackers: The “Fresh Herb” flavor is delicious and addicting.
