Action: Things You Can Do Today (A list of ways to help make vegan living more accessible)
- Vitamix Pro 750: My favorite, but priced accordingly. Makes soups within 6 minutes, heats up right in the blender. Dry container does a good job milling seeds and oats. Pre-programmed speeds for smoothies, soups, etc. FREE SHIPPING with affiliate code 06-009946
- Nutribullet: Lower power than Vitamix, but lower price for a tight budget. I moved up from a Nutribullet to the Vitamix.
- Omega 8006: I currently use this model and love it. It has a very narrow chute to insert the veggies and fruit, so there’s lots of chopping involved, but I don’t mind. The pulp comes out very dry, so I’m getting lots of juice and saving money on how much produce I buy. This model is a “masticating” juicer, which means it is slow, quiet, and great for juicing leafy greens. There are other good models to choose from also, including some with a wider chute and vertical design.
Menu and Shopping Assistance:
- Vegan Express app – This app finds vegan items at non-vegan restaurants. Very helpful!
- Oskri: I have found about 40 vegan items on their website. There are also some non-vegan items (including items with honey) so choose carefully and you will find great natural food snacks for traveling. Their products use only 2 to 6 ingredients, and can be ordered online, and sometimes found at airports and other stores. I have tried their coconut bars and I’m sampling all of their other vegan products.
