Quick & Tasty Vegan Chili

smart-chili.jpgThis is a “Smart Meal on the Go” as Lightlife says on their website…and this is good chili.
I usually make my own chili and it is all beans and vegetables, but this Smart Chili from Lightlife (that they sent me in my goodies cooler – see prev. post, thank you Lightlife!) was such a new kinda treat because Lightlife puts their own very good vegan “ground meat” in it. I haven’t tasted “meat” in chili for some time, so it was really good.
This would be an excellent thing to take to the office and have for lunch, it takes 2.5 minutes in the microwave and it is great.
Here’s a $1.00 off coupon for Lightlife products good till 5/31/2007.

Free Vegan Food!

Not really, that title is a bit misleading, I don’t actually have free vegan food to give away. BUT I do have a LIGHTLIFE $1.00 off coupon.

The link above will take you to the Lightlife site where a popup window will auto-open containing instructions on printing your coupon. They make you install a “coupon printer” (I did it, it’s nothing – you can say yes with no worries), and then your coupon prints. The coupon expires 5/31/2007, for those of you who find this page years from now and want your $1.00 off Lightlife coupon, sorry.
Did I just happen upon these coupons? No, they happened upon me. I am a lucky vegan. AlmostVegan.com is a lot of work, you should see the spam comments I have to sort through to find the real ones (1000 to 2), and they are disgusting — “Tall hairless blond…” — you get the picture, I’m sure. But, there are certainly perks. Eat your hearts out, I get free vegan food.
Lightlife, already one of my very favorite vegan food companies, somehow found Almost Vegan and wanted me to get a chance to sample some of their products that I don’t usually find at my local Wal-Mart. That’s right Wal-Mart. You gotta hand it to a vegan food company that have gotten their products in that store. Talk about reaching the masses, no matter what you think of Wal-Mart.
I love Lightlife and I have for some time. Proof below:

That link above turns up 6 posts, 7 if you count this one.
Well, Lightlife (bless them) sent me a huge box (actually a refrigerated cooler!) of their vegan food products. YEEEEUM! Most all of them I have never seen before. I have tried a few already and they are incredible…I mean really, really good, and they also sent a couple old favorites — Gimme Lean and Chick’n Strips. Out of my gratefulness to Lightlife I am going to do a series of posts on the products they sent me, thanks Lightlife.
Oh man. I am in vegan heaven…
And believe it or not, that’s not all. Amy’s noticed all the entries I had about their incredible vegan food products and sent me some coupons as a thank you. 5 of them are actually for totally free products, any kind I want, and some $0.55 and $1.00 off coupons too.
Thank you so much Amy’s!
Some days it’s great to be a vegan blogger.
