Sophie’s Kitchen Breaded Vegan Scallops

This product boasts gluten, soy, cholesterol, meat, and seafood free; as well as certified kosher and non gmo. But how does it taste? The vegan scallops as pictured on the box look delicious. Don’t they always. They were reasonably priced at my local store so I decided to give them a try.

The box suggests oven, toaster oven, or pan fry preparation.  I went with pan prep as this is how I usually prepare scallops.  (Spoiler alert: I have purchased these scallops multiple times.  So yes I give them a positive review.)

The thing to keep in mind when trying meat substitutes is they are not going to taste exactly like meat.  If you’re looking for an exact repilica, don’t. Instead look for something comparable.  These scallops do just that.  They have managed to be comparable in appearance, taste, and texture.  They are a great option when you need to prepare a meal quickly.  Here are quick meals I threw together with these vegan scallops.

Boyfriend Shirt

Most women at one time or another have thrown on a man’s shirt. Usually it is out of convenience; lounging around the house or running a quick errand. How many though have intentionally planned to wear menswear? I have and it works well.
Here are two of the looks I pulled together using his shirts. The beauty is they’re both easy to pull off. For the first look, take one of his button ups, cinch it with a belt, and cuff the sleeves. That’s it. It can be worn with shorts, leggings, pencil skirts, or even as a dress. It sure beats shopping for a shirt dress.

For the second look I used his hoodie for a comfy laid back look.  I loved the detail in this hoodie.  I love texture and this one brings it.  I happened to have a clutch that went great with this top.  I threw on leggings and voila!  This looks great with wedge tennis.
