Christmas Came Early

Hello friends!

I hope your weekend is going well! Mine has been a good, busy, but good one:) I received some goodies in the mail and I wanted to share! I think Carson was jealous that I got two packages this week!

First, I received my box of goodies from the lovely ladies over at Pure2Raw filled with Twin Cakes goodies! I have been looking forward to this box for a little bit and finally got to try a little bit of what I’ve been drooling over on the internet. (Lets just say the Pick Me Up Date Balls are gone already!)

I received a variety of samples including the Mint Chip Coconut Bites, Pick Me Up Date Balls, Mesquite Cocoa Biscotti, Kale Hemp Flatbread, Savory Kale Cracker, and the Spiced Cheez Cracker.

First of all, the Labels look so good! I love it!

I fell in love with the Pick Me Up Date Balls! The ingredients were organic dates, organic cacao, organic cacao nibs, organic chia seeds, organic carob, organic coconut oil, organic maca, organic vanilla, organic spirulina, organic cardamom. Doesn’t that sounds ah-maz-ing? Like I said, those are already gone:)

These were also a very tasty snack. They almost reminded me of the mint chocolate brownies I used to eat when I was a kid but better because they were filled with coconut. Another great thing about this treat is after eating one of them, I was so satisfied I didnt feel the need to eat the whole bag. That is amazing, because that never happens…

Now for the Savory…

Doesn’t the Ingredient list speak for itself? None of these products contain a long list of ingredients with things I don’t recognize. Simple, honest snacks that taste really great! My favorite savory sample would have to be the Spiced Cheese Cracker. They are kinda addicting almost like a cheez-it! Such a cool thing that products like these are becoming more available and I’m excited to see the market for Raw, Vegan, and Gluten free products expand:) Thank you Lori and Michelle!

This week I also revieved some samples from Sunwarrior! They sent me samples of the new Warrior Blend raw and vegan protein powder.


I already have the Vanilla so I was excited to try the new Warrior Blend of the Vanilla, Chocolate, and the Natural flavors. The Warrior Blend is made up of Pea Protein, Cranberry Protein, and Hemp Protein and fortified with Coconut Oil. Yum! I’m so excited to make some smoothies and see how they taste! I used some of the Chocolate flavor in my protein cookie bites and they turned out great! I’ll be sure to post that recipe as well as the smoothie recipes soon! check out their products at http://www.sunwarrior.com/products/sunwarrior-protein!

Overall I was so impressed with both Twin Cakes and Sun Warrior this week so thanks to both of them!!

We are heading out for a little road trip to Disneyland! So… I’ll see you all later:)
