Vegan “fast food” lunch review: Trader Joe’s veggie wrap

FullSizeRender (39)

After a very long hiatus, PLV is back! I took a break to refocus on my health, both mentally and physically and I’m happy to say I feel better than ever.

To celebrate my first day back in the blog world, I picked up one of my favorite “fast food” lunches while I was doing my weekly shopping at Trader Joe’s: the pre-made veggie wrap with hummus.

Like most people my age, I’m obsessed with TJ’s. The produce, the variety, the unique selection, the low prices… I love it all. And this wrap is no different! I’m not usually a fan of pre-made wraps because they’re soggy and mushy but this one holds up pretty well. Granted, it will never be the same as a fresh homemade sandwich but when you’re needing something grab-and-go, the veggie wrap is a great option.

Rolled in lavash and stuffed with hummus, shredded carrots and broccoli/cabbage slaw, it’s delicious and best of all, it’s filling. One word of caution though: you really do have to LOVE hummus if you get this wrap because it is A LOT of hummus. I’m a hummus junkie so it’s perfect for me ūüôā

Here’s to being back on PLV and a lot of more yummy posts to come!

Jack-O Traveler: best vegan pumpkin beer for fall

Like most all people, I’m more than a little¬†obsessed with pumpkin at the moment. Give me pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin cupcakes… I’ll take it all, in very large quantities preferably.

But if you really want to know the way to my heart this fall, I prefer my daily shot of October deliciousness to come in a bottle of Jack-O Traveler Shandy.

Because whoever came up with the brilliant idea of pumpkin beer is definitely my long lost soul mate. I mean its pumpkin and beer. Two of my current favorite things. TOGETHER. In one yummy drink!

As a waitress at a bar with a ton of craft beers, I’ve had the chance to sample more than my share of pumpkin beers recently. And while I like them all, the Jack-O Traveler is by far my favorite as it has the strongest pumpkin flavor and ¬†is nice and light.¬†Not to mention, it is completely 100% vegan! So, for all of my beer lovers out there, definitely¬†give the Jack-O Shandy¬†a try.

It’s like a perfect fall afternoon in a bottle. Or two. Or three…
