A roundup of the latest and greatest health food products on the market from HealthyHelperBlog.com!
I know it’s only been a few weeks since my last FOTM post, but I just could resist! It seems like ever since I got back from Europe I’ve been SWAMPED with packages from all sort of people and places. Believe me, I’m not complaining! 🙂 All it means is that I have more new foods to try and more review to share with you.
As I was trying to think of theme for today’s Foods of the Moment post, I realized that all the foods I’m featuring would make for a great, well-rounded breakfast! There’s a protein powder, a cereal (or well, TWO!), and some nut butter. Sounds like the makings of a pretty great breakfast bowl to me! This post will literally outfit your cabinets with Everything You Need for Breakfast.
So now you’re probably salivating just thinking about all these new yummy foods! Let’s introduce them…
Can you believe I’ve never had About Time Whey Protein?! I’ve had their bars, their pancake mix, but never their signature product! Well, I can’t say that anymore and I am super happy about it. In fact, they even become a favorite of mine.
The nice people at About Time sent me sample packs of their Cinnamon Swirl, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Chocolate flavors of whey protein and their Chocolate and Vanilla flavors of vegan protein! They also have a ton of other creative, tasty flavors so be sure to head to their website to check those out.
I love that the powders are only sweetened with stevia and have less than 5 ingredients in each of them. Simple and clean….can’t beat that! They also TASTE amazing! Out of the ones I tried, Cinnamon Swirl and Strawberry were my favorite. All of them taste very delicious though. They mix well in to milk on their own, are great for baking, and make awesome protein ice cream too!
The vegan powders have a slight coconut flavor to them since they are infused with coconut oil powder! They’re made pea, pumpkin, and brown rice protein. Very simple, healthy ingredients too just like the whey!
Thanks About Time…you definitely have a new fan in me! In fact, I actually ordered a whole tub of their Peanut Butter flavor (which has sadly been discontinued…no idea how I got a tub!) and I’ve already made a HUUUUGE dent in it.
THIS COMPANY IS SO COOL. You all know I love being able to customize food! Whether it’s bars, granolas, chocolate…you name it. Being able to make your own special mix is just so much fun! And it guarantees you get something that is unique to you and that you’ll like.
That’s certainly the case with MyCerealMix! This company offers mix your own oats, cereals, and granolas with tons of possibilities for add-ins, flavorings, and all sorts of fun extras. First you pick your base, then you can add freeze-dried fruits, nuts and seeds, superfoods, and finally extras like cacao nibs, coconut flakes, protein powders, and more!
I made two separate mixes, both very different from each other and am totally impressed with both!
The first was…
- soy protein cereal
- freeze dried bananas
- chia seeds
- bee pollen
And the second…
- brown rice crisps
- freeze dried strawberries and blueberries
- cacao nibs
- wheat grass powder
I’ll definitely be reordering. That’s another great thing about MyCerealMix! They give you a custom code that allows you reorder the exact blends you’ve created in the past. No struggling to remember the exact ingredients you put in which! So convenient….and like I said, FUN to do!
Legendary Foods makes snack products like nut mixes and nut butters. They sent me a few of their products to try out and I was so shocked by the amazing flavors. Their products use only natural, healthy ingredients and they pride themselves on providing satisfying options that taste good, are good for you, AND are fun to eat! They definitely check off all those boxes with the foods I tried.
The nut mixes came in Buffalo Blue Wing and Tangy Ranch flavors. Being the Buffalo, NY girl that I am I LOVED the wing ones. They really tasted like my favorite hot sauce…Frank’s and had a nice bit of spiciness to them! The Tangy Ranch reminded me of Cool Ranch Doritos (do they even make those anymore?!). The flavor was so bold and had a nicely spiced, salty taste to it.
The nut butters blew me away! I mean how can you go wrong with nut butters that are dessert flavored?! Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Cashew Butter and Pecan Pie Raw Almond Butter…seriously amazing. And they really do taste like their namesakes! Perfect level of sweetness, perfect texture, perfect taste. I even love the little sample sized containers they sent me…definitely for eating all in one sitting, am I right? 🙂
Thanks Legendary Foods…your snacks really are LEGENDARY!
How are those for some amazing breakfast foods? As you can tell, I love all of them and have even tried them combined (minus the savory nuts of course!). So good.
Have a great weekend, friends! And take it from me…GO TRY SOME NEW FOODS!
Have you tried any of these brands before?
What’s the most unusual nut butter flavor you’ve ever had?
