As part of my New Year’s resolutions, I am trying to cook real food each night for dinner.

It is free from any animal products and is widely available. YUM!
This week’s Accidentally Vegan feature is…. Wolfgang Dark Chocolate Dipped Cranberries!!! As an added benefit besides the yum factor, World’s Healthiest Foods reports that cranberries are packed with anti-oxidants, help protect against UTIs, and have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. I was glad to know about the health benefits of cranberries as I gobbled up these super yummy vegan cordials. Hope you enjoy them!
This week’s Accidentally Vegan feature is Rite-Aid’s “Simplify” Kettle Corn! Thanks to our friend Retta for sharing! This vegan kettle corn is just like you remember: fluffy popcorn with the perfect blend of salty and sweet caramel flavor.
