The Guru’s 5 Favorite Vegan Items from NoPigNeva
I was pretty excited when my wife, Sherry, discovered NoPigNeva, a new online grocer of plant-based foods. They offer basically everything vegans want but can't find in traditional grocery stores in our area.
You know how you still crave chicken wings, lasagna with tons of cheese and all the other stuff you have always loved, even though you're committed to a plant-based diet? NoPigNeva offers all the stuff that lets you do that — and they deliver it wicked fast, often the next day, and it's free to anywhere in New England for orders over $99. Just the other night, Sherry placed a big order around 8 p.m. and it was on our doorstep the next morning. It's magic. I don't know how they do it.
But I do know we'll keep ordering, especially since we've found some favorites we can't live without. Here are my top 5:
1) Vegan smoked drumstick. You can dress it up with a sauce (and beverage) of your choice.
2) Candy: They have such a wide assortment, you'll feel like a kid in a candy store.
3) Brie: Same as the candy, there's truly a wonderful selection, from classic brie and truffle brie to vegan dark chocolate strawberry brie.
4) Sirloin steak with mushrooms in a red wine reduction: Mmmm. Just seeing that picture again makes my mouth water.
5) Vegan shrimp: Choose from naked vegan shrimp, vegan coconut shrimp and vegan dusted shrimp.
Of course, we're still trying new things but based on what we've had so far, we can't recommend NoPigNeva highly enough. Give them a try yourself at nopigneva.com and let me know what new favorites you find. And don't forget, shipping within New England is free on orders over $99. Get started at nopigneva.com.
