Vegan products we're LOVING right now!
1. Blode Kuh Vegan Tree Nut Cheese- Blode Kuh (pronounced BLUE-deh KOO) means 'silly cow'. If you follow us on Instagram, you've probably seen some of our posts about this amazing, flavorful, soft cheese. We discovered the booth at our local Long Beach Farmers Market and we're SO PUMPED! In rows of fresh produce and food trucks catering exclusively to non-vegans, this find was a gold-mine. They make 8 flavors of their cheesy spread, all handmade weekly with organic cashews by creators Maxi & Doug. They have flavors like Truffle Fluff, Sriracha Cheddar, White Cheddar, Herbievore, and Garlic Green Peppercorn. And for the Sriracha Cheddar? They make their OWN raw, vegan sriracha! Now THAT is quality- and you can taste the difference. And what I like best about Maxi & Doug is that they agree that most vegan cheeses aren't palatable or even cheese-like. Instead of dealing with it like the rest of us, they dove-in and started making a better product- one they liked and could be proud of. For now, they're selling at Farmers Markets in the greater LA area, but I am PRAYING they go big- I cannot get enough of the stuff! And everyone that tries it agrees...its better than the rest!
2. ENERGYBits- Made from 100% organicallly grown, non-GMO spirulina & chlorella algaea and loaded with 40 nutrients, ENERGYbits have the highest concentration of protein in the world (64%!!)- for just one calorie per tab. They act as a plant-based energy shot to help supercharge workouts, increase mental alertness, and give you healthy energy to help get through the day. Since they're small they go down easy- and are cool for kids, too! They are 100% ALGAE, which means nothing in them will do anything but good for you. And since they're high-protein, they help stave off hunger and unnecessary snacking & cravings. I've been poppin' one overtime I feel run down or snack after I've already eaten. I'm hooked!
3. Fruigees Organic Fruit Snacks- These little babies have been SAVING me lately! As a nanny, I am constantly running around. Between car rides to school and activities, plus the constant GO that a 4 & 2 year old have, its nice to have an easy-to-eat in the car snack that isn't full of crap. These delicious treats come in3 flavors: 'Kalefornia Grape', '24 Carrot Orange', and 'Nothing Beets Cherry'. My fave is the 24 Carrot Orange. And with 1/2 cup of fruit per serving, they're fruit-filled enough to make adults happy and sweet enough to keep the kiddos happy. Plus, they have 100% serving of Vitamin C. What more could you ask for?!
