Hey blissful friends! Is everyone gearing up for the holiday weekend? I can't wait to see the epic food posts from my favorite bloggers! Speaking of epic food, did you see this review of Blissful Bites from one of my all time favorite healthy vegan bloggers Ricki of Diet, Desserts, and Dogs? Check it out; she raves and shares a recipe!
One of my new year's goals (or resolutions or whatever you want to call it) is to make more video content. I'd love to hear from you about the kind of videos you would like to see from me. One series will be Stuff I Dig, where I share cool things I find with you. I would love to start doing my Live Q&A again on UStream (which I haven't done in almost 2 years!), where you send it questions and I answer them live (and it will be recorded). What do you think? Please let me know!
Here's the first Stuff I Dig video!
Three Sisters Instant Oatmeal comes in a variety of unique flavors and uses 25% less packaging than other brands. They are full of good for you stuff like whole grains, flax, and quinoa. Most do have sugar, so I bought the Plain Grain flavor and added maple syrup and cinnamon. I'm in the creamy oatmeal camp, so I added 1/2 cup rice milk to the required amount of liquid. Three Sisters is a great choice if you need a quick, easy, and satisfying breakfast. Their other cereals look great too, though some of them do contain honey, and one has marshmallows that are not vegetarian. Please check the label.
PlantFusion is a relatively new protein powder to hit the market and I'm loving it. The texture is so fine that it leaves no grittiness to your smoothie. Also the stevia flavor is not that strong, which I find with a lot of protein powders (like Vega). The creators of PlantFusion really know their stuff. Look at all those amino acids and protein! I've been working out a lot lately and trying to build strength and muscle so a good protein powder is important to me. I also love Lifetime Life's Basics Vanilla! No icky soy protein isolates to be found in any of these two brands.
Thunderbird Energetica is my new go to raw food bar. I'm in love with their flavors and they are Shaman blessed. What more could you want in a snack? All three flavors are divine, so it's hard to choose a favorite. I'm a big fan of supporting family owned business that care about producing quality vegan products. SO go get you some!
Big Tree Farms has some of the most amazing products hailing from Indonesia. They aren't locally made (for most of us) but this company is supporting farming and sustainable practices in Indonesia. Just take a look at their story. I'm a big fan of the coconut palm sugar, but after looking over all their products I know where I'll be spending my Christmas money. I've seen Sweet Tree at most natural food stores. Another brand Coconut Secret I've seen at Whole Foods, and it's another great brand of coconut products.
Have you tried any of these products? What do you like or dislike about them? What other products would you like to know more about?
