    I highly encourage everyone, vegan or not, to keep Herbamare in their pantry. Have you ever tried it? It’s the most delicious, versatile seasoning ever. It’s sea salt infused with herbs and vegetables. It’s perfect for when you want something to taste good without a lot of work.
    I also always keep a can of pumpkin in the pantry and a can of coconut milk in the fridge. Pumpkin has so many uses, and you never know when the need for coconut cream will strike!
