A roundup of the latest and greatest products from the health food world on HealthyHelperBlog.com!
I want to thank you all again for so nicely welcoming me back to the blog world last week after my trip! As much as I enjoyed my two-week break, I am itchin’ to get back into my full-time blogging and social media routine. And of course I missed interacting with you guys the most!
That’ll have to wait unfortunately since I am away on another trip right now! This one is super fun though and sort of blog focused. As you’re reading this I am visiting my girl Julianna in LA for Idea World Fitness and BlogFest!!! WOOHOO! It’s my first time attending and I am so pumped. Stay tuned for lots of updates!
But I’m not leaving you guys hanging while I’m away! In fact, as a big thank you for looking after Healthy Helper while I was abroad, you’re getting two things today that have been missing around the blog recently: a FOODS OF THE MOMENT post and a giveaway!
This isn’t just your run of the mill giveaway, however. No no! Think of this more of Christmas in July because I am giving away 3 amazing prizes from 3 of my favorite brands: Thunderbird Bar, Food for Life Bakery, and Enlightened Foods! But more on all those goodies at the end of this post. 🙂
For now, let me share some of the delicious new food finds I’ve been enjoying lately…
If I could marry a cookies, I would. And THESE would be them! Alyssa’s makes ‘healthy’ cookies that not only taste delicious, but they taste like normal, everyday cookies too! Basically, they’re not just good for ‘healthy’ cookies, they’re just a GOOD COOKIES.
Made with only raw unrefined whole grains, naturally dried fruits, and nuts, their cookies are only sweetened with fruit, low in fat and calories, and bursting with sweet cookie flavor.
I was sent two varieties to try: Vegan and Oatmeal. The only real difference between the two is the inclusion of egg whites in the non-vegan ones. But I have to say, I actually prefer the texture of the non-vegan ones! They’re a bit less crumbly and more chewy than the vegan ones. Don’t get me wrong though, a cookie is a cookie and both kinds are great! I especially love the big cranberries throughout. They add such great tart contrast to the sweet cookies.
I am a big fan and am pretty bummed that I already ate through the 4 boxes they sent. Oh well, just an excuse to order more I suppose! 😉
The long-awaited Ezekiel Waffles have FINALLY arrived! And judging by how you guys reacted on Instagram when I showed them to you, I know you’re just as excited as I am.
They come from my favorite bread brand and are full of all the sprouted grains and superfoods that you’ve come to know and love from Food for Life Bakery. I received, Original, Blueberry, and Golden Flax Waffles to try….but I hear there’s also an Apple Cinnamon variety! Yum.
If the Apple Cinnamon flavor is anything like the 3 I tried, I know it’ll be a winner. The waffles toast up perfectly and are super hearty and dense! I like that because it makes them more filling and you can really taste the whole, sprouted grain goodness in them. I also love that they have no added sugar of course!
My favorite way to eat them is freshly toasted with warm blueberry syrup poured all over. YUM! If you want to try these for yourself, you’ll want to check out that giveaway I mentioned. 😉
Thanks Food for Life!
Square Bars seem to be taking over Instagram nowadays. Everyone and their mother has tried them….except ME. Well that finally changed when the company sent me a surprise box of all the their wonderful flavors! Those include: Mint, Crunch, Almond Spice, Cherry, Coconut, and Peanut Butter. All are chocolate coated, soft, and super fudgy!!! They honestly taste like candy bars.
Square bars are full of plant-based protein, fiber, and are 100% organic and non-GMO. They’re also gluten-, dairy-, and soy-free! Usually I go for fruit-sweetened bars, but these are sweetened with coconut nectar and I am totally okay with that. It’s low glycemic and adds just the right of sweetness.
I guess you could say I’ve joined the Square Bar revolution! Now I know why everyone raves about them so much. I LOVED the Peanut Butter the best of course. But really, is that a surprise? 😉
Thanks Square Bar!
And now for that huge giveaway I promised!!!
3 winners will have a chance to win either:
+a mixed box of Thunderbird bars
+a variety pack of Ezekiel Waffles
+a mixed package of Enlightened Roasted Broad Beans (my favorite crunchy snack!)
Good luck, everyone! The winners will be chosen and announced next Thursday night!
