Vegan Dogs!

YES your dogs can live a cruelty free lifestyle too. It makes sense to feed your dogs vegan food if you’re vegan as well. Here’s some recommendations of products that we feed our foster pups and they LOVE it. It’s also healthy, nutritionally balanced and satisfying for your pet.

At the moment we are feeding our 7 year old chihuahua ‘Salsa Burrito’ a combination of veggie mince mixed with daiya cheese and vegan dog biscuits. Here’s some recommendations of what products she likes…

LIGHTLIFE Smart Ground Veggie Protein Crumbles (from Whole Foods or Pavilions)

DAIYA Cheddar Style Shreds (from Whole Foods or Pavilions)

NATURAL BALANCE Vegetarian Dry Formula (from Petco or Petsmart)

V-dog Kibble (online via v-dog.com)

HEALTHY DOG SNACKS
Since taking up fostering we’ve been learning more and more recently about taking care of dogs.
We like to have our pups live a vegan cruelty free lifestyle so we’ll do a post soon on what we like to feed them!
This is a really helpful diagram of what healthy snacks are okay and not okay for dogs.

Create your own at DOOMIES!

So we recently discovered that you can create ANY kind of combination from the menu at Doomie’s Home Cookin. 

We’ve always wanted to try a vegan grilled cheese sandwich and the BBQ pulled pork seemed intriguing so we made this combo. The BBQ pulled pork grilled cheese sammie. It was delicious! So good with hot sauce added. We’re not sure what they use for the ‘meat’ but it’s so damn good and no animals harmed!

Look how beautiful she is. How could anyone look at this picture and feel that it’s okay to eat her. Make the connection and show your compassion by being kind to animals. Ignorance is not bliss.

Trader Joe’s, You Little Vegan Ripper!

Trader Joe’s have so many hidden little vegan treasures! We’re always finding new ones on our daily TJ visits. We decided to share some of our favourite vegan products with you and let you in on our secret cheap grocery store favourites. 

Dr. Praeger’s California Veggie Burgers

The best veggie burgers on the market! We don’t have the time or effort to make a gourmet meal most of the time. These are great on bread, cut up and thrown into your salad or mixed with stir fried/steamed veggies. A great source of fibre, low calorie (110 calories per patty) and easy to cook.


Goddess Dressing

One of our new found favorites that we put onto almost every meal is TJ’s Goddess Dressing! We love to add it to marinara pasta sauce to give it creaminess, on our favorite salads and also as a dip for our pita chips! It derives fresh flavor from chives and parsley, creaminess from tahini and its signature tang from lemon.  For $2.29 it’s every vegan’s secret weapon to making your average meal into a creaminess explosion in your mouth! 

Reduced Guilt Pita Chips with Sea Salt

If you know the both of us well enough you would know we are beyond obsessed with these pita chips from TJ’s. They are just like the Stacey’s Pita Chips BUT cheaper, better for you and lower in calories. Team these babies up with your favorite garlic hummus and you’ve got yourself our favourite party…a pita chip party!

Coconut Milk Non-Dairy Ice Cream 

We all have our guilty little pleasures that we hide deep in the freezer! This is what always bring us lots of comfort and love! Nothing beats Trader’s Strawberry Coconut Milk Ice Cream. It’s soy, gluten and preservative-free!

Enjoy :)

WE LOVE BRUCE HEART!
Okay so you’ve all probably been watching us on Instagram talking about new exciting things for Bruce Heart but in sneaky little details. This is an update on what we’re actually doing!
Bruce Heart is no longer the marketing initiative we first established it as and we’re no longer promoting other brands via our social media platforms. We’ve always intended for us to have our own brand and now that we’re in the sample production stages we can announce that we’re relaunching as our own label!
BRUCE HEART is a compassionate fashion label. We’ll be releasing a collection of staple wardrobe items over the next few months with our first item and brand new website launching 1st April 2014!
We’ve always wanted to bring a cruelty free, stylish and affordable fashion alternative to you all. The 6 items that we’ve designed are the ones in your wardrobe that you wear ALL THE TIME and pair with your statement pieces or denim. It’s your basic staple wardrobe items that everyone needs to have…just wait until you see the prints! It’s all made here in Downtown LA so the quality is of a high standard and there’s no risk of supporting any suspect establishments overseas.
We’ll also have a selection of vintage t-shirts and band shirts too. We’ll be altering some of them into muscle tee’s for you and adding them to the online store as we source them.
We just want to thank you all for your loving support and patience. We’re so excited to be together here in Los Angeles working on our dream and saving as many animals as we can along the way.

The greatest brownie you will ever eat.
So this is the Fudge Brownie from Doomies Home Cookin’ and it’s probably the greatest dessert we’ve come across here in LA. The dangerous thing is the fact it’s a 1 minute walk from our place and they are open until 10pm everyday (uhhh ohhh). 
We have no idea how they make it so delicious? It’s like a combination of chocolate cake, brownie, gooey fudge and chocolate chip bits. You can get it warmed up but you lose all the good textures so it’s best to eat it straight from their cabinet or at room temperature. Make sure you ask for a middle slice because the sides tend to be hard and you miss out on the gooey goodness!
Doomies also has such a bomb diggity menu. It’s all comfort food dishes (burgers, pasta and fun appetisers like jalepeno poppers and buffalo legs) so it’s not the healthiest of places but you HAVE to try if you’re vegan.
They are located on the corner of Fountain & Vine right in Hollywood!
Check out their Instagram (@doomies) & like them on Facebook here.
Enjoy!
