My Visit to Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary

Over Labor Day weekend, I was visiting family in Connecticut and thought it would be a great opportunity to check out a local animal sanctuary.  I came across Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary in Poughquag, NY and was excited to embark on a mini road trip!  After a couple of wrong turns (thanks for nothing Waze!) we finally arrived at the sanctuary.  It is located in a such a beautiful, serene area near the Appalachian Trail.  We were warmly greeted by co-founder, Dr. William Crain who proceeded to give us a tour of the grounds.

As we all try not to melt away during these dog-days of summer, it helps to have products that will keep you feeling refreshed despite what the thermometer says.  The July Vegan Cuts beauty box was packed with products that will beautify as well keep you calm, cool and collected during these hot summer days.

Ask A Vegan Chef

 While scrolling through Instagram, I'm always in awe of the beautifully plated, drool-worthy vegan dishes people showcase.  And one particular account included in my admiration is Insatiable Vegan.  Just take a look at this: Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sammie  (kale, pesto, spinach, Riverdel cheese, avocado and fakin) Or this...
