Happy Friday everyone!

Chris and I partnered up with iHerb, an online natural products retailer that sells discounted products for all of your needs, and we worked together to create a “What A Vegan Couple Eats In a Day” series on our YouTube channel and blog using a wide array of vegan products we found on their site. You can check out all of the recipes and video below, and please let us know what you think! We would love to possibly continue this series as a regular feature on the blog 🙂
