Product Review: Near East Whole Grain Roasted Pecans & Garlic

This is indicative of the types of "dinners" I have been making, working 12 hour days = quick food for dinner.

I ate it too quickly to take a picture, but it looks as you would imagine, brown rice, pecans, and spices, simmered to make a delicious and hearty rice pilaf. It would be very good with some chopped veggies or Soy Curls as well.

It took about 30 minutes total to make and the flavor was outstanding. The texture was perfect, the pecans are well-roasted and stay crunchy.

Natalie Portman Designs Vegan Shoes

I know it's been a long time, I've been busy with other projects! Anyway, check this out -- Natalie Portman has partnered with Te Casan shoes to provide a limited edition vegan shoe line. They're available for pre-order and my guess is they will sell out pretty quickly.

Check out the styles here: Te Casan Website

I hope this signals the beginning of a trend!! :)
