OMG! Organic Meets Good Powders

Have you heard of OMG! antioxidant and vitamin powders? I just heard about them a few weeks ago and their Indiegogo campaign to help launch their new quinoa protein powder. Unfortunately, they didn’t meet their goal, but I certainly hope they will still be able to launch it.

Quinoa Protein Powder Quinoa protein powder blended with unsweetened almond milk I... Read More

Product Review: Biscoff Spread

Have you ever been on a flight and seen those white packages of cookies the stewardesses/stewards give to passengers when they’re taking drink orders? Well, those are Biscoff cookies.

Product Review: Onion Crunch

Product Review: Farm to Market Pickles

You may think a pickle is a pickle, is a pickle, but read the ingredients list on any pickle jar at the supermarket and you’ll be in for a surprise: high fructose corn syrup, artificial coloring and the list goes on. What a pickle! Sure they’re easy to make at home, but sometimes I don’t want to make everything from scratch. I want to be able to buy prepared foods that are minimally processed. That’s what I really liked about Farm to Market Pickles, the... Read More

Product Review: Miso Mayo

The folks from Miso Mayo were kind enough to send us some samples of their delicious alternative to mayonnaise. Miso Mayo is exactly what it sounds like, mayonnaise made with miso paste. It’s non-GMO; has no dairy, eggs, wheat, gluten or sugar —here are some additional food facts on it—; it has a huge VEGAN on the front of the bottles—we love that; and it comes in three flavors—Original, Spicy Red Pepper and Garlic ‘n’ Dill. To test these three yummy... Read More

Vida Vegan Con 2013 Goodie Bags
