Hello hello! Today is a special day in the world of Simple. Easy. Vegetarian! Not only is this my very first blog post from my new home in Virginia, but its also my first Awareness Wednesday post in Virginia too! It is unreal to think about how I am living on my own and with my boyfriend of 4 years. I feel like I am living in a dream, the reality hasn't quite hit me yet.
Today's post is about those tasty breakfast pastries that come hot out of the toaster. I am talking about Pop Tarts.
Pop Tarts are another one for the list of foods that I didn't know were vegetarian when I gave up meat. I think I ate then until I was 16 or 17. Once day I was curious about the ingredients. As I was munching away I saw gelatin. Pop Tarts meet the trash, trash meet Pop Tarts.
Oh gelatin, the usual culprit!
If you are looking for a toaster pastry alternative without gelatin, but still want junk food, Pillsbury Toaster Strudels are the perfect option.
If you are looking for a version that is not only vegetarian, but vegan, all natural, and organic, you can always choose Amy's Toaster Pops. They are pretty much the same as Pop Tarts, fruit filling in a breakfast crust.
While Pop Tarts were a really convenient breakfast, I don't really miss them. Let's admit it, Toaster Strudel and Amy's Toaster Pops both taste way better than Pop Tarts ever did!
Are you done with Pop Tarts too? While alternative will you be choosing instead?
Bye from the Veggie Side!
