1) Misen Chef Knives
Every home cook needs a great set knives! I was recently gifted these Misen knives (the Chef’s Knife and Paring Knife) and I completely 💙 them. They are so balanced, sturdy and sharp, making all your slicin’ and dicin’ a total breeze. Seriously, if you don’t own good knives, you’ll be amazed at the difference once you try high quality knives!
From Misen’s website:
Most kitchen tools are either cheap and flimsy, or come burdened with bloated price tags and unexplained features. That didn’t seem right to us, so we took a simpler approach. QUALITY MATERIALS – For both our knives and cookware, we spent months choosing premium steels which offer a balance of performance and durability. THOUGHTFUL DESIGN – The millimeters matter. Whether edge angles for our knives or ergonomic handles for our cookware, every piece we make is obsessively considered. HONEST PRICE – By cutting out retail middlemen and selling directly to customers online, we’re able to offer incredible tools at an honest price.
**PLUS – A GIVEAWAY!**
I’m thrilled to announce that Misen is giving away BOTH their Chef Knife and Paring Knife to one lucky winner (a $100 value)! Will it be you? Scroll to the bottom of this post to enter! Giveaway ends December 16th @ 11pm EST.
2) Vegan Fusion Online Cooking Course
A few years ago for my birthday I received the original version of the Vegan Fusion online cooking classes, and I absolutely loved it! This was before I started my blog but I had gone vegan a few months prior. Having videos to watch was so inspiring and made plant-based cooking feel so easy, approachable and fun!
Since then this Vegan Fusion course has been completely upgraded and redesigned, and I’ve also personally trained with Chef Mark Reinfeld as a Certified Level 2 Vegan Fusion Chef (you can read more about that experience here!).
What will you learn in the course?
- Essentials of Plant-Based Cuisine – covers soups, dressings, salads, legumes, grains, tofu + tempeh, sauces, casseroles, plant based cheese, wraps + rolls + spreads, breakfasts, pizza, seitan and intro to desserts
- Raw Food Fundamentals – superfood smoothies + elixirs + tonics, pates, salads, pastas, soup, plant cheeses, dehydrator crackers + granola, dehydrator pizza + tacos, plant milks, sauces, mains, fermenting 101 and – last but certainly not least – raw desserts!
Each course is comprised of in-depth videos that you can complete at your own pace, and you’ll also receive recipes, interactive photos, fun quizzes at the end of each lesson, a private Facebook group AND, if you complete everything, you’ll be rewarded with certification as a Level 1 Vegan Fusion Chef! Watch the video above for more info.
BONUS: 40% DISCOUNT ALERT!
If you want to learn more about vegan and/or raw food preparation fundamentals, I highly recommend these easy to follow courses. Using the code SNEWMAN, you can get 40% OFF EITHER OR BOTH courses, which equates to $100 off the bundle or $50 off either one you choose! That’s only $150 for both courses. Simply click here to register with your special code!
I’ve always wanted a fun t-shirt like this that supports plant-based eating. Just google vegan t-shirts and you’ll be amazing at the thousands of them out there! This one is just $16.99 on Amazon.
4) Membership to Thrive Market
Thrive Market is an online grocery store that makes it easy to find healthy, high-quality products at truly affordable prices. They ship right to your door in 100% post-consumer packing materials and their prices are 25-50% off retail, plus every single day they have a different sale or giveaway free products with your purchase (20+ giveaways/month with an average $16 gift value) so it’s really worth the membership price, IMO!
It makes vegan eating cheaper and more convenient, so what’s not to love? I wrote an entire post on my favorite vegan products and why I love Thrive Market here.
Bonus: Gift a membership now and your recipient will also get an extra 20% off their first THREE orders!
5) Vegan Bags
Support cruelty-free fashion with sites like Urban Expressions that don’t compromise on ethics or style! These chic animal-friendly handbags are so gorgeous; I have a backpack, makeup bag and the purse pictured above. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this purse – so practical (it’s huge inside) and yet elegant with the textured braiding, I highly recommend it and have received multiple compliments on it!
Another popular 100% vegan brand is GUNAS, an independent high fashion label from NYC that sells beautiful bags, wallets and shoes.
