The Matt & Nat vegan coat collection for 2019 offers up some stylish, cruelty-free options By Diane Small Winter is coming and if you’re like me, the idea of colder, shorter days fills you with a bit of dread. Not only because it’s dark and chilly, but because sometimes you feel a bit unfashionable in your old winter coat – especially if you’re vegan. The most gorgeous, luxurious looking coats are, unfortunately, usually the cruellest: they’re filled with feathers ripped out of (often still living) ducks and geese. They’re lined with fur taken from beautiful, wild animals slaughtered from farms, or worse, captured (and often tortured) in the wild. Or they’re made from what is quite literally the skin of a cow, sheep or lamb. Even if you’re wearing something more ‘benign’ like a wool coat, according to PETA, there’s still animal cruelty in that: at Australian wool farms, for example, within weeks of birth, lambs’ ears are hole-punched, their tails are chopped off, and the males are castrated without anesthetics.

Getting into home herbalism can be intimidating. There is a treasure trove of information about herbs, thousands of plants that you could use, and almost endless ways you can use them. Add this to the very common worry that you’ll cause more harm than good by using plants to treat ailments, and it’s easy to see how some people can be gun-shy when it comes to herbalism.
I hope we’ll eventually make you feel empowered and comfortable enough to dip your toes in the herbal waters to make medicinal teas, syrups, or salves, but for now I think a great entry level project into home herbalism is to try your hand at homemade beauty products such as DIY lotion.
Why DIY Lotion is a Great Place to Start with Herbalism
Since most people don’t see beauty products as true medicines—although they definitely can be—the mental barrier seems to be lower. Plus, it’s a fun science experiment, and the end result makes for great gifts (for you or someone you love).
Along the way, you’ll also get to know certain plants (here, we’re going to dive into the sunny yellow goodness of calendula), learn herbalism processes, and hopefully get more comfortable with your home herbalism practice. Read the post »
This homemade hot pocket dough with no yeast (and a ham and cheese filling) comes together in just a few minutes. This post contains affiliate links, which earn revenue for this site at no extra cost to you. See my disclosure policy here.
A photo of these ham and Swiss rollups appeared on a menu post of mine a few weeks back, and you all asked for the recipe.
It comes from the orange ATK Quick Family Cookbook (look for used copies on Amazon or eBay, as it’s out of print) and is super easy.
I mentioned initially that these look a little like Hot Pockets, but you need to take that opinion with a grain of salt because I’ve never actually HAD a Hot Pocket.
But these do reheat really well in the microwave, so perhaps they could serve as a sub for the Hot Pocket-eating people at your house.
A few tweaks from the original
The original recipe calls for a can of refrigerated biscuits, but since cream biscuits are SO easy to make, I opted for that. I think you could use pretty much any biscuit recipe you like as long as it makes 8 biscuits.
