Welcome Abundance into Your Life | #Sunday Story Time #VLOG Episode 72 #ManyBlessings



Peace and Love to you on this Sunday. Today in this Story Time Episode 72, we will learn that it is time for us to welcome in our abundance this week. God wants to shower us with his love, peace, and overwhelming joy, so that we can also be a blessing to someone else. Living for Christ can be an exciting adventure because you never know how He wants to use you to be a testimony from day to day. It is not all about suffering and living in lack. God needs for us to be prosperous and wealthy in our finances, our spirit, and in knowledge, so that we can serve His Kingdom in these times. It is about living a life of gratitude and always remembering where your blessings come from.



The daily devotional message is being read from Jesus Calling for November 12, 2017. Follow along with me in the video below and grab your bible or bible app as well. 



These are the Bible scriptures that help us even more to understand this message:

♥ Psalm 23:5
♥ John 3:16
♥ Luke 11:9-10
♥ Romans 8:32

Vegan Cuts Snack Box Unboxing for October 2017



Hello! I decided to subscribe to Vegan Cuts monthly snack box to try some new products. I have been popping popcorn kernels in a pot for a while now and wanted to switch things up and add some variety! LOL! I also wanted to learn about other snack brands that offered vegan goodies so that I could share them with you! Yay!




In my first snack box, received in October, there were approximately 10 or so different snacks, including beverages also. Some brands gave away coupons too. There were a lot of new brands that I had not heard of yet. I am definitely going to continue to purchase some of the snacks again because they were really tasty. Only a few snacks did not compliment my palate. 

I heard about Vegan Cuts a couple of years ago and joined their mailing list to stay informed about their offerings. I heard them mentioned by different vegan YouTubers back then. However, it took me some time to come around to see the value of a snack subscription box and to try it out for myself. I guess because I currently subscribe to an organic produce delivery service, that influenced my decision to try Vegan Cuts too. 

I went to their website and created a free log in account. The ordering of the box was also very easy, to choose and set up my monthly subscription. There were other options for setting up your subscription throughout the year depending on your preference. Vegan Cuts also offers a vegan-friendly make up and beauty box, but I wanted to start with the snack box to see how things worked out. I was a little confused about where to find my invoices after ordering but I tapped around a little bit and realized that they were under 'subscription boxes' and not order history, which is for shop-item purchases.



Speaking of shop items, you can purchase boxes separately for the holidays, birthdays and for gifting throughout the year. I liked that a lot.



In the following video, I share with you all of the contents of my first Vegan Cuts October snack box. This will give you a better idea of what you can expect and to learn more about the vegan-friendly brands as well.




Disclaimer: This unboxing of the October Vegan Cuts snack box is 100% from my own opinions. I purchased this month's subscription box for my own personal use. Your experience may vary.

Teeccino Herbal Coffee Alternative Review



Recently, I tried Teeccino's Chicory Herbal Tea in Hazelnut and Dandelion Turmeric in my vegan snacks, monthly, subscription box. Both of these teas are made with organic herbs BUT also taste like a cup of COFFEE in Medium Roast! 

Teeccino has developed a Herbal Coffee Alternative using herbs and they are both caffeine free and acid free because the award-winning designer of the teas, Caroline MacDougall, was sensitive to both caffeine and the acidity of coffee. However, she still loved the flavor of coffee. Personally, I am quite the opposite, I have tried coffee and couldn't get past its bitter taste and I ended up putting so much sugar or milk in the cup. So, I stuck with tea instead. Teeccino surprised me because it had the taste of a cup of coffee but without the bitterness and SO flavorful. I thoroughly enjoyed both, the Hazelnut and Dandelion Turmeric, but if I had to choose one over the other, it would have to be the Hazelnut. It tasted even more richer when I added a little soymilk and blue agave. 

I love companies that pay-it-forward! Teeccino also helps to support impoverished families in rural communities, organic smallholder farmers, and the preservation of the rainforest, with the purchases of their herbal teas.


My favorite HAZELNUT - Herbal Coffee Alternative

Teeccino Chicory Herbal Tea - HAZELNUT

My favorite herbal coffee alternative! Has a rich, creamy, taste...According to the package, it has buttery hazelnuts enriched by golden roasted almonds, dates, and figs. Caffeine Free. Acid Free. Teeccino is produced right here in the U.S. and certified organic. 
Contains Almonds.






Teeccino Chicory Herbal Tea - DANDELION TURMERIC

It was pleasant to the taste and showcased the herbal ingredients more, while providing a coffee-like experience. According to the package, it has turmeric and licorice highlight dandelion. Caffeine Free. Acid Free. Again, produced in the U.S. and certified organic.







Disclaimer: This product review is 100% my own opinion. I purchased these teas to try in my vegan snacks monthly subscription box. Your tasting experience may vary.

Simple Truth Meatless Crispy Tenders #Review #VeganFood



Today, I tried Simple Truth Vegan Meatless Crispy Tenders with a salad. This must be a new product because I did not know that Simple Truth was also preparing foods for the vegan-market. Here is my 100% personal video review after purchasing them while grocery shopping at my local Ralphs (Kroger in other areas).
