Just wanted to tell you about a new food we found online!! We love new foods, it’s so much fun to get things in the mail. ūüôā Graze provides a free trial to their little snack boxes and we just got two in the mail!! Woot Woot.
They have several different boxes to choose from but the 8 single servings shown here would be about $11.99/order.  Not bad considering you get to pick and choose what types of snacks you get.  They are also all perfectly portioned to be around 100-150 calories- yeah healthy eating!

Thanks Graze for the fun treat in the mail!  PS. it looks like the pricing is including shipping on all boxes.

Nouri (as in “Nourish”) Gets It Right With Simple Nutrition Bars

by jem614

I received a cute little box of Nouri Bars in the mail a couple of days ago. ¬†I have to say that I honestly had no idea who they were before they contacted us and I thought it was just another “vegan” bar out on the market.

 

Then, I opened their little box of goodies and read right on the package that every bar you buy provides a meal for a child in need. ¬†Stop everything, we have found the Tom’s Shoe company of food people! ¬†They won me over even before I ripped off the package. ¬†I have to say that the bars are not the prettiest but they are nutritious, delicious and come in three¬†great flavors that really it makes no difference. ¬†My son, who is picky eater of picky eaters, kept asking me for “more” when I broke off a few pieces of their chocolate cashew¬†bar.

What’s another great feature of these bars? ¬†They are usually around 150 calories- that’s almost unheard of in a nutrition bar. ¬†Seriously? ¬†150 calories? ¬†That’s like a cup of tall chai latte at Starbucks. ¬†Also, each bar packs in about 6 grams of protein and has some pretty fabulous organic ingredients as well (forget sugar or corn syrup, these babies have dates, hemp, vanilla, etc).

And when they asked us to try their bars, they focused on their mission to end child hunger, not on getting more sales. ¬†We think we’re in <3!

Thank you Nouri Bar for introducing us to a new brand –¬†you now have yet another loyal fan.

Kale Krunch

Kaia Foods was generous enough to send us an “alternative” version of their Kale chips that is made by their sister company, Alive & Radiant (I believe they will be merging their co’s).

First of all, the Kale chips look like actual Kale pieces. ¬†I opened the bag as soon as I got home because I wanted to see how it stacked up to the previous Kaia chips. ¬†I was pleasantly surprised: they had sent us bags of the Quite Cheesy chips that are made with cashew cheese, nutritional yeast, red bell peppers and a few other key ingredients. ¬† ¬†The chips had a “nacho” feel because the red bell pepper gave it a Jalapeno taste.

The ultimate test was when my husband, who hates most things vegan, asked to try them and said they were good! ¬†He actually asked me to leave a bag of the chips at home so he could eat them. ¬†I don’t know if I have a veggie convert on my hands but he is now a convert to the Kale chips.

The only thing I think may be a little overwhelming is the heaviness of the chips.  They are not light and crispy (though light and crispy may cause the chips to be crushed in packaging so I can understand why) like home-made might be, they are quite thick and loaded with flavor.

However, with only about 220 calories in 2.2 oz  bag of chips, this could be a great alternative to greasy potato chips!
