Gluten-Free Vegan Finds

I had a non-vegan friend, and her family, stay with me over the weekend.  Of course, since our house is vegan she knew not to bring animal products.  She was so sweet that she even bought some vegan toiletries before coming so that I wouldn’t feel uncomfortable. ♥love her!♥

Her little girl is gluten-free.  I knew my friend would pack plenty of items for her to eat and that we would go out for meals too, but I wanted to make sure I had some special items to fun-up her stay.  Here are some of the foods we all enjoyed devouring together.

^^ Toasting up these bagels got them to the perfect texture.

I am a lover of breads.  All the breads!  Sadly, most gluten-free breads have egg in them, so discovering BFree was pretty thrilling.  I’ve had friends and readers share with me how much they want to transition to veganism because it breaks their hearts to think of what animals go through.  So if you, or someone you know, is unable to eat gluten and wants to transition to veganism, please share this post with them.

Here’s a link to BFree’s store locator

^^Looking around my fridge for something to spread on the bagels, I noticed that Tofutti Cream Cheese is gluten-free. Yay!

^^We had tomato sandwiches for lunch with blackberries and lemonade. Our attempt to enjoy the last days of summer. 🙂

^^ They also have wraps which make great quesadillas.  We made mini-pizzas with the pitas…but I forgot to take pics because we were hurrying to pile up in the living room to watch a movie.

OMG their dinner rolls are so fluffy and chewy.  What sorcery makes them so amazing!?!

^^ Love small batch anything, but small batch popcorn is a true essential.

Since I knew we were watching movies, we had to have popcorn.  Popcorn Indiana is a small company, that grows their own corn (I know…instant charm), and is named after the small midwest town it resides in.

Here’s their website.

You can order from Amazon

^^ Sea salt caramel is life!!!

I’ve passed Dollop on the co-op shelf several times, never dreaming that something so enchanting looking could be vegan.  On a whim I picked it up expecting a dairy euphemism somewhere in the ingredients list and was blown away to see a vegan symbol instead.

The magic doesn’t end there.  Dollop was created by one of the winners of Cupcake Wars who helped catapult vegan cupcakes into the mainstream.

Here’s Dollop’s store locator.

You can also order directly from their website.
