Surviving cold weather as a vegetarian!

Don't get caught sneezing away through the coldest months! Although many autumn and winter sweaters contain wool, leather, or fur, keeping warm while in style can be as cruelty free as you like. Along with fashion, here are some yummy foods to keep you cheery from the chill in the air.

FASHION:
1. Leggings.
I know, leggings are so 2OO9. But have you ever worn them under your jeans? If not, then you have to try it! Especially if your knees shake at the smallest winter breeze. They don't have to be thick either, any simple pair will do.


2. Pleather jackets and faux fur coats.
Thankfully, faux fur and pleather are much easier to find and cheaper than the real thing. Warm, comfortable, and affordable? Yes, please! Three winter classics that you can never go wrong by either are sweaters, turtlenecks, and flannel.

4. Boots.
I'm not into the usual autumn and winter boots that reach my knees. However, you can think outside the box and find something unique that'll still keep your toes warm throughout rain, hail, or snow.


5. Beanies, scarves, and gloves.
Keep those lovely ears, neck, and hands warm before heading out. With so many different colors and styles, you'll be sure to find some vegan-friendly beanies, scarves, and gloves that'll make your heart melt.


FOOD:
2. Hot chocolate.
My favorite? Chocolate Abuelita! A childhood classic, you can even find this in Target. If you're a vegetarian like me who tries to steer clear from drinking any dairy milk, you can use soy or almond milk for this, which will also make the hot chocolate creamier. (Tip: Add cinnamon sticks.)


3. Home-baked cookies.
Whether made from scratch or from store-bought dough, cookies fresh from the oven are always a fun treat.


4. Chili and beans.
Most chili and beans recipes contain meat, but I created a vegetarian one that can also be veganized by using vegan cheese. Not to mention also easy to make. To see the recipe, click HERE.


5. Nutella toast or crêpes .
I understand that cold mornings tend to make some of us lazy, so why not pop some bread in the toaster and spread on some Nutella? You can even add fruit. A toasted sandwich recipe is HERE, and a crêpes  recipe is HERE.
