SO, I went to Swansons and placed a large order esp since they had a great sale--

BOB'S LRG FLKE NUTRITIONL FOOD YEAST 8OZ BOB'S LRG FLKE NUTRITIONL FOOD YEAST 8OZ 1 $8.38 Shipped

BRAGG LIQUID AMINOS 32 FL OZ BRAGG LIQUID AMINOS 32 FL OZ
I'd never heard of 'L-threonate' before but I wanted to keep taking calcium supplements and a quick search showed it beneficial
The eye drops are for my two cats with that herpes type infection that causes runny eyes
And---Chandrika soap!! I so love that smell! I actuall called after placing the order to add it, then found I was really low on Braggs and called back to add that too!

I quit coffee--two weeks and I couldn't care less! I've decided to add matcha to my mornings
funny how I've drunk coffee daily since before my teens, I think I just found that window of opportunity and stopped it at the right time.
My taste buds are changing now. I like nutritional yeast waaaay more than I ever did!
It's weird, I have never been a fan of hot tea. I just have one or two cups of coffee a day... nothing like I used to. LOL And I add a heaping teaspoon of organic cacao powder.... sooo nummy!

And dammit, I couldn't find Bragg's Nutritional Yeast today!! I wanna try this crazy stuff! Plus, it'd be awesome in my upcoming stuffed mushrooms instead of parm!

Check out https://www.swansonvitamins.com/ today! I believe it's the last day for .99 cents shipping. Bobs nut yeast is $8.38 for 8 oz and the best price I've seen.
If you like spicy scents like frankinsence/myrhh I would recommend trying Chandrika soap for .67 cents a bar. It's moisturing and animal free
It is funny about tea.I never, ever liked hot black tea - and now I do. Still not my favorite, but Ive been having a cup every morning still kicking coffee. I did it because it really was an addiction, and I love not having a coffee maker to take up room on a small counter

I can't find the sh*t anywhere. I called the local tiny health food store, they only had bulk, and I'm sorry but I'm not spending $30-40 dollars on ONE food item. LMAO

Oh, well.... the hunt continues.

swansons doesn't have braggs nut yeast--I must have seen the Braggs seasoning sprinkles--which really sounds like a good blend! No salt.


What about trying Bobs Red Mill? You can get it for $8.38 and right now, .99 cent shipping

My last trip to the store was very small I am afraid. I went to Whole Foods and picked up
Texturized Vegetable Protein
Mint toothpicks ( I like to chew them)
I also saw a brand of natural deodorant paste made here in Austin that caught my eyes. Primal Pit Paste. I may have to try it. I am trying to go back to the natural products that I used to use. We will see. My tried and true stuff I used to order online.

last trip:
four cans pinto beans
two cans light kidney beans
two cans great northern beans
two cans tomato sauce
two envelopes mild chili seasonings -- I agonized over which ones to get because I am very very sensitive to chili spice.
unsweetened vanilla almond milk
pumpkin almond nog -- a splurge

less than 13$

I will be going back soon, though. I want to make some of my first batch of chili into tacos. I need tortillas and I didn't think that through. I'm going to start trying to work with a menu. That seems so foreign to me. But if other people can do it.

A tire, tortilla chips, pickles, and chunky salsa.

My trip to the grocery store was abruptly aborted by a flat, unrepairable tire. One tow and 3 and a half hours later, I was on the road again, but by then my battery on my smartphone was dead (the smartphone had the grocery list.) I just grabbed something to nosh on and left. Tomorrow is another day.

Yeah I like their toothpaste ok. The deodorant left a lot to be desired last time I used it. The EarthScience? brand in WF worked really good, but the paste works best for me as in being able to control the amount.

I hated the two Toms deoderants I tried> one smelled really good when applied, but did nothing.

I've been making coconut oil putty deoderant for years now. Just melt the oil about 1/3 up a jar, add a few drops essential oil if you like, and add about two parts cornstarch to one part baking soda (too much soda was irritating) until thickened, but not thick. It'll thicken up a lot the next few days, esp in cooler weather. I've had to re-melt in hot water to add more oil cause it was too hard, but that's fine.

The batch I'm using now doesn't have any scent (coconut isn't enough) and I really miss it. I love frankinscense.

So silva, did you ever find a good source for the "better than bouillon"? I want to try it but it's twice as much via Amazon as anywhere else, and a big order to get the free shipping isn't something I can readily afford right now.

NOT ever amazon!
Vitacost is like $4.50 and the only place I've found no beef. Shipping is free after $50. and I tried ordering but there site froze
Iherb.com only has no chicken but under $5.00 and shipping free after 20.00

I ordered a bunch of stuff from swansonvitamins.com (see above). they now have shipping at .99 cents and only have no chicken, like $4.50. Hmmmm, just noticed it's not showing on my copy/pasted post... they have a great sale right now, not sure when it ends-maybe today

Yeah the smell is lovely, but I put it on and I swear I stunk to high heaven. I smelled really really musty. I could not get that smell away for the whole day. It just did nothing. I would love to make my own and your recipe is easy enough, but I am more of the mindset "Shut up and take my money" for natural deodorant. :P

Got 20% off and 99 cent shipping, then the site crashed but it looks like it's going to let me do it this morning, anyway.

Thank you!

For deoderant, I use the crystal type. It lasts forever and works very well.

I really needed to shop, but I've been under the weather this week. Last night I made an emergency stop for cat food (the prescription food I ordered from chewy.com hasn't arrived yet) and ginger ale. Today I made it through one of my two stops before giving up and going home.

bell peppers: 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 red
garlic: 3 heads (planning on making immunity soup tomorrow)
1 bag spinach
3 broccoli crowns
1 bag whole wheat mini-bagels
unsweetened almond milk
2 lbs baby carrots
3 limes
4 small yellow squashes
2 cartons of blackberries
1.5 lbs fresh tomatoes
1 pomegranate
6 kiwi
4 pears
6 lemons
1 package wasabi hummus (it finally arrived at my Aldi!!)
2 quarts veggie broth
2 cans cannellini beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
dry roasted peanuts
kalamata olives
stuffed green olives
crushed red pepper flakes
Asian trail mix (I was so sad to see that my favorite, the Tranquility mix, now has milk in the chocolate )

@Blue Gingham -- did you know Aldi has bean burgers? In the summer they had Chipotle and -plain?- black bean veggie patties -labeled vegan! They sold out sooo fast I went back week later and was told they were a special and sold out. Now I found they're in the freezer section by the frozen veggies, which means they're a regular! And a box of 4 is like $2.50 I really like the Chipotle. I used to make bean patties so much, but I'll be glad to buy these.

I also subscribe to Chewy for food and litter. I have 9 cats and LUV that I can them delivered free. I got a Christmas card from them today

I haven't tried the black bean. I got one package of veggie burgers at Aldi and wasn't particularly impressed, but I'll definitely check out the Chipotle ones. I really like a well-made bean burger.

It's my first time ordering from Chewy (I just switched to prescription food because of my elder cat's kidney problems) but so far I'm pretty impressed. I called to ask how long my order would take so I'd know how much food to buy and spoke with a very nice person who gave me a better than expected answer on the fulfillment date, followed by a nice chat about our pets. He had a cat and two dogs and they also have dogs in the office every day. Plus the price for the food was the best I've found. They seem like an easy company to deal with.

Also my mind boggles at the idea of carrying home litter for 9 cats. No wonder you're a fan of the free delivery!

So this weekend I'll be tending to my best friend's beasties (he's a tech director, they have a "fest", he'll be stuck working 7AM-midnight today through Saturday).... I figured why not whip up something he can easily reheat & snarf down when he gets home, and/or take with him for lunch. I've decided that tonight I'll be making a HUGE batch of uber-veggie, action-packed minestrone!! I'll bring my own bell pepper, mushrooms, garlic, carrots, spices... he has a mammoth-sized onion over there (along with the most colossal stock pot I've ever seen in a personal kitchen)... everything else I need to get at the store. I'll post it here before I buy it since I won't be back online until tomorrow. LOL

Yet to get, in mass quantities:

Veggie broth
Crushed tomatoes
Diced tomatoes
Garbonzos
Kidney beans
White corn
Yellow squash
Zucchini
Baby spinach
Ditalini pasta
Storage containers ---- like, where the flerk am I gonna put all this?!
Heineken ---- for the chef

Minestone is my favorite kind of soup!
I never used chickpeas in soup, I use them in so many other things. I was just thinking when making falafel they'd be good in an Italian wedding type soup.
Sounds like a whole cauldron of soup!

Bananas
Arugula

It's really liberating to buy true food, and not have a pang of guilt about buying dead animal parts. How oh how I lived like that for years.
