My New Addiction and New (to me) Grocery Store

For about a year I have been loving Daiya shredded cheese.  During my recent trip to Whole Foods I discovered their sliced cheese and pizza!
I did buy the sliced cheese to have with my veggie burger.
Two minutes before taking burger off the pan I added a slice of the Daiya cheese.
It melted and it was awesome!
I need to remember to take my phone into the kitchen more often to take pictures.
The burger was delicious!

I am a big fan of the library and more so with trying new vegan recipes with the cookbooks that I have found.  Right now Betty Goes Vegan is my newest find.  Beautifully written with a guide to vegan products, tips and tricks.
One brand it mentioned I've never heard of.
After googling it I find that there is a (new to me) vegan and organic grocery store a little over 2 miles away.  I can't wait to check them out and add them as my go to store for vegan products.

They have a way too easy guacamole recipe that I tried and my teen loves.

Dan's Guacamole
(serves 4-6)

2 large ripe avocados
2 tbsps lime juice
1 minced garlic clove
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tsp onion powder
1 diced jalapeno (I omitted this ingredient and it was not missed)
1 tsp hot sauce (I omitted this ingredient and it was not missed)
crushed pink Himalayan salt and crushed black peppercorns (sea salt and pepper was just fine)

mash your avos into a paste and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

My teen loves to use this as a spread for her sandwiches!
