Purim is coming! Purim has always been my favorite Jewish holiday, probably because it’s one of the few where you can make noise in synagogue and it’s not only ok, it’s encouraged.

I love reviewing new vegan products and spreading the word about all the wonderful vegan items on the market. The one thing I usually don’t get to review, however, is vegetables. Well, not fresh vegetables, anyway. Most products are foods that come in jars, bags and boxes. Plus, I don’t usually think about vegetables as […]
